ABC's on ME

A - Attached or Single: Happily Attached
B - Best Friend: Ben. The man. He's patient, kind, open and fun.
C - Cake or Pie: Cake, especially tortes and layered cakes. I could live in a bakery.
D - Day of Choice: Friday. Because I know the weekend is coming and because Ben has every other one off.
E - Essential Item: I can't live without the computer, good face wash and my toothbrush. That's three...
F - Favorite Color: blue, although I don't really like to wear it as much as I like wearing brown or pink or teal. I used to hate pink in my tomboy days, but now I love it!
G - Gummi Bears or Worms: Love Haribo Gummi Bear. I love anything Haribo.
H - Hometown: Irvine, Salt Lake City, Lichfield (England), Bad Vilbel (Germany)
I - Indulgence(s): Mountain Dew, Wii Lego Star Wars
J - January or July: Who likes January?
K - Kids: 3 very busy, very cute, kind of crazy, smart and good kids.
L - Life is Incomplete Without: Family. Even though they sometimes make me insane (mostly my kids) I cannot imagine life without them.
M - Marriage Date: August 21 - 10 years ago.
N - Number of Siblings: 5. I'm the oldest. And the bossiest.
O - Oranges or Apples: Pink Lady Apples.
P - Phobias or Fears: Vampires. Which is why I am doing this tag. I can't have the guy who tagged me (Matt, who has vampire-like teeth) after me. Yikes!
Q - Quote(s): Some favorites off the top of my head because I'm too lazy to look one up...
What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
Stand a little taller.
You can't give from an empty well.
Einsamkeit traegt sich leichter zu zweit. (Loneliness is easier to bear together.)
R - Reason to Smile: Kate. She is just so darn adorable.
S - Season - love spring...except there is no real spring here in CA. It's better in Utah, after a long winter!
T - Tag Six: Sally, Cami, Anisa, Amy, Leslie, AND Missy- you're it!
U - Unknown Fact About Me: I am a little obsessive about wasting stuff...I can't stand it. Food: I hate it when kids just throw their food on the floor, or take a huge helping of something they know they don't like and then refuse to eat it or when kids take a whole bunch of trail mix and pick out the M&M's and throw them on the floor. I love to recycle, and makes things out of old re-used materials, but I have to force myself to throw useless things away...scraps of paper or ribbon or fabric, buttons, beads and rubber bands, broken toys and worn out shoes. You'd think I'd grown up during the depression or WWII, but no. I'm just a little OCD in this respect.
V - Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animal: There's a little story about me going to a restaurant at a very young age with my family and my German grandparents. I could barely talk. A waiter was passing by with a large platter of meat. I turned and said, "Meeeeeeat!" rather loudly. (It was in German -"Fleiiiisch!",but that should answer the question.) Okay, I'll spell it out: I'm a carnivore.
W - Worst Habit:biting my nails even though it's crude and disgusting and I've quit so many times and started again. Help!
X - X-Rays or Ultrasounds: Broken bones or babies?
Y - Your Favorite Food: Spicy and foreign.
Z - Zoo: Favorite animal: 9I changed this one from zodiac, because I REALLY could care less about zodiacs.) I totally love goats and dolphins. They are quick, fun and lovable.

So, there you have it. Now you know all about me. Tags are fun, but one about me is sufficient. (I also hate being the center of attention.)

I LOVE hearing about everyone on their tag posts! Thanks for sharing. Very interesting!

Matt said...

That post made me laugh my head off!

The irony is that you fear my vampire teeth and I now I fear the fact that you bite your fingernails.

I promise I won't suck your blood as long as you promise not to shove your fingernails down my throat!

For those of you reading this comment you'll have to read my blog post to understand what I'm talking about.

As for the OCD characteristic of not throwing things

Jessica said...

So with you on the bakery thing and the nail biting thing.

I think the wasting OCD is because you're German? I have a friend here whose mom is German and she has horror stories of that lady's hoarding and cheapness.
