Meme about me me me, to the tune of ABC

Carla sent this meme my way, and along with being fabulously talented at quilting and as far as I can tell anything else she can lay eyes or hands on, she has a great blog.....with LOTS of readers! So here we go....

A. Attached or Single? Yup, attached- and delighted about it.
B. Best Friend? The man, and a bunch of others, and my sister...I don't do best friend I guess. The man.
C. Cake or pie? Pie ALWAYS, especially if the man made it.
D. Day of choice? Every day, again, not so good at favourites or bests...
E. Essential item? What is essential...my kids, my man, food, housing, clothing....
F. Favorite color? Probably yellow...bright and cheery, though I love blue..especially the sea.
G. Gummy bears or worms? Worms I guess, Carla draws the line at gummy spiders- she says their gross; I've never seen one, but I'd try one...then there was that gummy naked man I saw here.....which I posted about, including a picture, but I cannot find that post....sorry.
H. Hometown? Toronto I guess.
I. Favorite indulgence? Chocolate, or pie, or fresh bread and olive oil, or tea, or figs in season, or a great tomato, or pringles (I know, they aren't really food, but), or gelato, or swiss chard cooked just right, or a great meal out, or...not good at favourites.
J. January or July? July. I am still in snow suit trauma.
K. Kids? Two...girl, girl.
L. Life isn’t complete without? Death. The glib - though accurate - instant response, but possibly true. To the spirit of the question? Books.
M. Marriage date? Yup.
N. Number of brothers and sisters? One younger sister.
O. Oranges or Apples? Depends.
P. Phobias? Losing a child.
Q. Quotes? Oh heck....I don't know....
R. Reasons to smile? Love, Travel, my kids, friends, goofy stuff that happens, the silly dog, walks in the mountains, or at the sea, sailing, time alone, time together...yadda yadda yadda....
S. Season of choice? Spring, summer, fall, winter kinda.
T. Tag....whoever wants too....
U. Unknown fact about me? This is post 669, what's left? Hmmm, I like thumb rings.
V. Vegetable? Love 'em, more and more every day....
W. Worst habit? Grumpiness.
X. X-ray or Ultrasound? mmmm, boring, lets change that up....Exclamations most used? Aside from the rude ones...ai caram, which makes the Catalans laugh cause it's such an old lady one...tough bananas....suck it up.....hmmm, I'll have to ask.
Y. Your favorite food? Favourites again, I so cannot do this...what DON'T I like? Liver, kidney, crap in my food, literally and figuratively, too salty chips, too salty anything, processed gummy non-food that you are forced to buy at too high a price because you are trapped somewhere like an airport and have no choice: near food seasoned with anger and outrage. Yuck.
Z. Zodiac sign? We didn't have a zodiac, we have a hard dingy we rowed everywhere when we lived on the boat. Love her endlessly.

So there you go, feel free to add your own, change it up and do it or not....

Cheers,

O

Gelato is wonderful, but really, is there anything more perfect than a great tomato? I think not.

Hula, tomatoes, when they're really good are simply amazing...I forgot to mention mangoes that drip down your arms, and lichees, and pho, and and and and

Beth, it was a long one. How are you doing honey?

LP, she is a great boat, much better than any old zodiac and we built her ourselves....

Hmmm... now you have me wondering about gummy naked guy!! Was he tasty?? LOL

Beth said...

Thanks for taking the time to do that! I loved reading it. Lots of fun!

Carla, he was sort of spicy and cinnamony...strange, eh?

Beth, it was fun, you should try it to as a change from plastering!
