A to Z meme

I am taking this from Millie. I am really boring lately and I have nothing to blog about...unless you want me to tell you the story of my sister on Saturday and her violent, raging hormones and the car she keyed.

ACCENT: I sound like I am from Utah, but my mom never let me speak like a "Utahan". I don't drop my T's from words like Mountain. I say "pillow" not "pellow" and "milk" instead of "melk".

BIBLE BOOK THAT I LIKE: Esther

CHORE I DON'T CARE FOR: Laundry

DOG OR CAT: Dog. My sister is going to breed her sweet puppy and we will get to have one of it's puppies. I am so excited! I miss our little dog so much!

ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: The Computer, MP3 player

FAVORITE COLOGNE: Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker and Moonlight Path and Cherry Blossom by Bath and Body Works. Oh, and Contradiction by Calvin Klein.

GOLD OR SILVER: Gold, I look terrible in silver.

HANDBAG I CARRY MOST OFTEN: A red roll purse.

INSOMNIA: Nope. I am a rock. As soon as my head hits the pillow you had better not try to wake me up for 8 solid hours, because it just wouldn't happen.

JOB TITLE: Mom

KIDS: Two girls

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Five bedroom, 3 1/2 bath two-story home.

MOST ADMIRABLE TRAIT: The one I like the most in other people is honesty and forgiveness. In myself I think it is that I have the ability to forgive and move past things.

NAUGHTIEST CHILDHOOD BEHAVIOR: I was a pretty good kid, but when I was two, my mom says I got it all out of me in one day. I finger painted in the carpet with dry Cream of Wheat, while my mom was cleaning that up, I shampooed the carpet with my shampoo. While she was cleaning that up, I smeared Mentholatum over the little girl she babysat and myself.

OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAYS: I stayed in the hospital when I had both girls and when I was four. We had been broadsided by a drunk driver and I had quite the hospital stay.

PHOBIAS: I am deathly afraid of guns. I cannot touch one without freaking out. I really, really, really dislike rodents of any kind. That includes raccoons and rabbits.

RELIGION: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon)

SIBLINGS: The oldest of four. Two sisters and one brother

TIME I WAKE UP: 7:30.

UNUSUAL TALENT OR SKILL: I can twist my tongue around. I can do Elvis lips and I speed-read and retain what I read. This talent came in really handy when I was in high school and college and I had procrastinated. I once read the DaVinci code in four hours

VEGETABLE I REFUSE TO EAT: Beets. ULGHHH!!! Funny though...I love all other veggies.

WORST HABIT: Biting my nails. Seriously, I am almost thirty and I still rip them off with my teeth. I am sure Freud would have a lot to say about that.

X-RAYS: The last one I had was on my knee. They wanted to make sure I hadn't broken my patella. I had patellar bursitis or housemaids knee. The one before that was on my back when they found my herniated disk.

YUMMY STUFF I COOK: Rolls, soups, pasta anything, crock pot dinners. I am a pretty good cook....just don't ask me to make chocolate chip cookies. I couldn't make a good one if my life depended on it!

ZOO ANIMAL I LIKE MOST: I love those funny little monkeys that swing around and play like they are little kids.

How about Bu-uns for buttons. I lived in Utah for about 6 months and I came back to Texas saying bu-uns for buttons. It drove my parents insane!!!

I am trying to get my 7 year old to quit biting her fingernails. So this doesn't give me much hope. UGH!!!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

My dad paid me a dollar for each nail that I stopped biting. It worked. As a kid, 10 bucks was a lot of money. So I stopped and what do you know, I have good looking nails!

Loved this post! Learned much about you! I have posted my list on ginamama.blogspot.com

My nails break. Waaaaaa!

Your mom having to clean up one mess after another made me crack up. It shouldn't have, but it did. :)

Tori :) said...

So, do you say LEG or LAGE? And measure instead of MA-sure? I leave my Ts out of words too, but I say things like din'it, wun'it, cun'it= Didn't, Wouldn't, Couldn't. My hubby makes fun of me. I can't help it!!
I bite my nails AND the cuticles. I'm so gross!!
I did this meme too!

utmommy said...
