Taggged by Dr. P.

Dr. Platypus tagged me--and our friend, Psalmist, too--for this meme. Psalmist beat me to the starting line, but here goes.

A - Available or Married? Married, to my high school sweetheart and love of my life.

B - Best Moment? Hmmm...hard to pick. Birth of my children is one, certainly.

C - Cake or Pie? Both. Oh, I have to choose? Pie. Pecan, apple, peach, strawberry rhubarb.

D - Drink of choice? Diet Dr. Pepper. Psalmist and Dr. P. and I all agree on that. How odd.

E - Essential Item? Daytime: My glasses. Nighttime: My pillow.

F - Favorite Color? Blue. Red and purple are good too. And yellow...and...I like colors. But blue is tops.

G - Gummi Bears or Worms? Worms, but they need to be the sour kind.

H - Hometown? Los Angeles. Grew up in the San Fernando Valley, a bit to the northeast.

I - Indulgence? I don’t even believe in purgatory. Oh, that kind of indulgence. Books. (Okay, I copied that from Dr. P. but I agree. And I have to add ice cream. Ice cream and books. And coffee and Starbucks ice cream flavored coffee...yum!) A book and Starbucks ice cream with chocolate syrup.

J - January or February? February. We got married in February.

K - Kids & names? Yes. Kristina and Joshua.

L - Life is incomplete without? Faith in God

M - Marriage Date? Feb. 13, 1971

N - Number of Siblings? Two sisters

O - Oranges or apples? Both! I like my oranges with a bit of salt on them and I (like both Psalmist and Dr. P.) prefer Granny Smiths...with a little salt. Or caramel.

P - Phobias/Fears? Crowds. I mean crowds where you are carried along or have to push to make headway. Scary. Like I hear Bourbon St. is today. Oh, no waaay!

Q - Favorite Quotation? I can't pick just one.

R - Reason to Smile? My new little granddaughter, Trinity Ann. :-)

S - Season? Spring, spring, glorious spring! And then summer...and then autumn....

T - Tag three people. I refuse! Play if you like, and let me know so I can read it.

U - Unknown fact about me: Everything about me is known to someone. Okay, okay. I am basically a wallflower, a woman scared of people, who fakes it--and overcomes it by the grace of God.

V - Vegetable you hate? asparagus

W - Worst habit? interupting

Y - Your favorite food? Mexican! Ole!

Z. Zodiac? Why yes, those constellations are up there in the sky. I love being far out in the contry on a clear night.

Oh, no, no! *I* didn't tag you! I ws just funnin' you about answering Dr. P's tag before you did! I tagged three other people, one of whom had already done it and the other two who haven't (yet) done the meme.

I wouldn't "tag team" you! :D

Psalmist said...

And this is strange...Diet Dr. Pepper, Granny Smith apples with caramel, spring...

Sure we weren't separated at birth or something?

I know. We really do have to make a list, because I have forgotten all the similarities--but I know there are an amazing number. ;-)

Ah, I see how you read my sentence. I meant, Dr. P. tagged both Psalmist and me.

Okay, I'm going to get off the computer and get busy.

afraid of people, but fakes it...hmmm sounds familiar and you're right - grace of God

I enjoyed reading your MEME and the response to "W" - Interrupting - brought to my mind something that my neighbor does all the time with me! If I am trying to explain something, just relating a little story, whatever, before I get to the middle of the first sentence, she is putting out a barrage of questions and it totally frustrates me because, being a "senior citizen" now, I am especially prone to "senior moments" and it takes very little to put me off my train of thought! Often, I have to just stop and tell her to please, not talk to me then, so I can remember completely what it was I wanted to say. And, just by doing that simple statement sometimes that causes me to forget what it was I was saying then too! ARRRGH!

I posted the meme as well, for what it's worth, I didn't list Diet Dr pepper.
