That A to Z thing from Facebook

Coffee with Cathy found this on facebook. I guess it has been around awhile but since I update my facebook account like once a year I didn't see it.

A - Age: 49 and staring 50 in the face

B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore(s) you hate: It would be easier to list the one I like: watering my plants

D - Dog’s name: Tripper, the barking Corgie and Nessa, the floppy-eared Goldendoodle

E - Essential start-your-day item: coffee. More coffee and still more coffee

F - Favorite color: green

G - Gold or Silver: silver, I’m not expensive. Just ask my husband.

H - Height: 5’ 2” or according to JR leprechaun

I - Instruments you play: barely ukulele. I can play JR really well but that is probably TMI

J - Job title: Digital Projects and Program Director. I like librarian better

K - Kid(s): Oldest Boy = over-educated computer geek married to DIL. The Boy = finishing his undergraduate degree in Microbiology hoping to get his MD. Hey, what can I say, I breed geeks.

L - Living arrangements: married

M- Mom’s name: Lois Ann. Her maiden name was Lois Ann McNail. Her high school friend’s dad called her Louse Ann Mcnut. She thinks it’s funny, now.

N - Nicknames: George (my dad gave me this name. I cherish it.)

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: never had one. I’m disgustingly healthy

P - Pet Peeve: People that don’t push their chair in when they leave the table. Sorry, it’s a librarian thing.

Q - Quote from a movie: From: Yellowbeard; Mrs. Betty Beard (Madeline Kahn) “Read, read, read. Last time I read a book I was raped”.

R- Right- or left-handed: both

S - Siblings: one older self-involved brother and one younger status seeking sister. Aren't I blessed?

T - Time you wake up: feels like every hour on the hour. For good 4:50am

U- Underwear: oh yeah! Preferably matching bra and panty sets.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Brussels sprouts, gross!

W - Ways you run late: I’m rarely late. Kids were the biggest problem.

X - X-rays you’ve had: head, collar bone, leg

Y - Yummy food you make: I make a mean pizza. Last night the Boy said I’d made the best effing pizza ever.

Z - Zoo favorite: The Beluga whales at the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington.

Try it out. It was fun.




  1. What a great way to find out a little more about one of my favourite bloggers! I'm going to try to remember to do this one too - but maybe after the school holidays.

  2. Oh, I like this one. Totally stealing it.


  3. "It would be easier to list the one I like"

    Oh, you are a woman after my own heart...

  4. George! I went to college with a girl named George. She had no sense of smell, interestingly.

  5. That was fun to read. I like "I breed geeks."

    I have a great love for geeks.

  6. Ooh! You're ambidextrous? You ARE talented!

  7. OOOhhh...this one does look fun...and easy!!! I'm all for easy posts these days :)
    Oh...I'm sooo with you on the brussel sprouts...Nasty!!!

  8. You must try the no panty thing. Highly recommended.

    How could you dis the 'sprouts? They are sooooo good steamed with butter, salt and pepper!

  9. That is a fun one.

    Lois is a great name. I've always like it.

  10. THis is fun! I enjoy your sense of humor and getting to know you a little bit more.


  11. Uh, yeah... probably TMI but funny. The not pushing your chair thing in drives me nuts, so much that I'll push other people's in for them if they're with me at a restaurant. Why the hell do you wake up at 4:50?

  12. Dirty Geek Breeder, you. Cheers Michele!!

  13. "I'm disgustingly healthy"
    It's a good thing you can't spread germs over gtalk, then. I'd have given you the black plague.
