Okay, I clearly have a lot of time on my hands this week because here is another post, hot off the presses, for the Old School Blogging, brought to you by Elaine and Jennifer.
The Alphabet Meme
A. Attached or Single? Definitely attached – the whole “I dreamt I married a French man” bit. By the way, should that be dreamed or dreamt for you grammar experts?
B. Best Friend? My husband, for sure.
C. Cake or pie? Cake, if it’s really dense with tons of frosting. Pie, if it’s pecan.
D. Day of choice? Saturdays during school vacation because then I don’t have to teach English, and the day is actually relaxing and devoted to family.
E. Essential Item? Laptop. Perhaps even more than phone.
F. Favorite color? Periwinkle. I also like Forest Green and Bordeaux.
G. Gummy bears or worms? How about Godiva? That starts with G.
H. Hometown? Syracuse, NY
I. Favorite Indulgence? Napping occurs on the most regular basis, however lying in the sun next to water, and getting pedicures, are right up there.
J. January or July? July, because school is finally out and we go to Bretagne as a family.
K. Kids? Juliet the talented, Gabriel the industrious, and William the Conqueror … unless it’s conquering the nighttime potty training. Um, let’s just say William the Dreamer.
L. Life isn’t complete without? God, love, my husband and children, grace, and lots and lots of humor.
M. Marriage date? October 28, 2000
N. Number of brothers/sisters? 1 biological brother, 1 adopted brother who died, 1 adopted sister, 2 step-brothers plus one wife (step-wife?) ha ha, and 4 brothers-in-law plus their significant others.
O. Oranges or Apples. Apples. I’m too lazy to peel oranges.
P. Phobias? Having to go to the bathroom when there is none available.
Q. Quotes? “The lazy always work double.” Are we sensing a theme here? (also see letter W) Or about about this one? “The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!” Proverbs 19:24. Who says the Bible is not funny?
R. Reasons to smile? I wrote a whole book!!!!!!! Plus, I’m excited to go to America this summer, and to go to BlogHer.
S. Season of choice? Fall – my birthday, my wedding, birth of one of my children, golden leaves in Paris. What can I say?
T. Tag 5 People. Despite being very honored, I’m always troubled when people tag me because I know I’m going to let them down. And then I don’t want to choose some people and leave out others, so … I’m on strike.
U. Unknown fact about me? Oh gee. Is there anything I haven’t already said? Hm. I played piano, oboe in the band, viola in the orchestra, and flute in the marching band.
V. Vegetable? Like my favorite? Ratatouille – the mix of onion, eggplant, tomato and zucchini is delish.
W. Worst habit? Leaving dishes in the sink (and on the counter, and on the table). Leaving clothes on the floor.
X. Xray or Ultrasound? huh? How about xylophone? The toy one where all the keys are different primary colors and you give it a satisfying whack with a wooden mallet to produce the sound? Much more fun than X-Rays.
Y. My favorite food? Roast chicken with the juices over flavored rice.
Z. Zodiac sign? Scorpio (rah)
Now it’s up to you – all those people I anonymously tagged from my heart. You know who you are.
