The ABC's of Me!

I was tagged by that rascal, Wordnerd. Blame her.

A- Attached or Single? Attached. Our 24th wedding anniversary is July 30. We were together a year before that. And they said it wouldn't last. Seriously.
B- Best Friend: No. I have lots of friendships but don't think of one over another. I'm thrilled I have a re-established friendship with my best friend from elementary school in Louisiana.
C- Cake or Pie: German Chocolate Cake. Or, Strawberry Shortcake. Depends on the season.
D- Drink of Choice: Iced tea.
E- Essential Item: My eyeglasses. Or the contacts if I'm in the mood.
F- Favorite Color: Purple. Seen my blog?
G- Gummi Bears or Worms: Bears. Definately.
H- Hometown: I take that as place of birth. Biloxi, Mississippi. Many hometowns since then.
I- Indulgence: Chocolate. Daily.
J- January or February: January. Fresh start, new year, husband's birthday.
K- Kids: One son. Age 17. Junior in high school. Help me.
L- Life is incomplete without: My guys, friendship, pets, books, pasta
M- Marriage Date: July 30, 1983
N- Number of Siblings: 2. Both younger sisters.
O- Oranges or Apples? Apples
P- Phobia/Fears: Claustrophobia, snakes, heights
Q- Favorite Quote: Hmm. So difficult. "The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." Mark Twain
R- Reasons to smile: My son's sense of humor, the dog, the cat, a good day
S- Season: Fall. It is the most welcome of seasons after a long, hot, humid summer here on the Gulf coast.
T- Tag Three: I'm just tagging random blogging friends who I think might actually do it. Roxanne at, AC at http://www.achronicleof wasted , and Beverly at All good women, smart, compassionate, independent spirits. The blogosphere connects me with some amazing people.
U- Unknown fact about me: Are you kidding me? I have a teenage son. Hello? Blackmail?
V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Carnivore
W- Worst Habit: Nagging. I prefer to call it 'reminding'.
X- X-rays or Ultrasounds? Ultrasound from my pregnancy. Awesome.
Y- Your Favorite Foods: Seafood, pasta, Southern food, Tex-Mex, Asian, Mediterrean, on and on
Z- Zodiac: Gemini. The twins. I can understand both sides of an issue. I drive myself crazy.

Thanks Karen. You brought me out of hiatus before I ever even started. I missed you guys with just the thought of vacating!

Love your favorite quote! Mark Twain is someone I'd like to have over for the 5 people from history dinner party. Except for the cigar smoke.

Oh, I just saw that you tagged me. I'll work on that tomorrow. Thanks. That is a fun one to do.

Your quote is fab. As is your habit. A little "reminding" never hurt anybody. ;-)

Those are awesome answers!

Give me a moment or two or twenty.
I will get to this.... Mom has a colonoscopy tomorrow and she is the world's worst about drinking anything.. complains all the time that she can't keep it down and even though I tell her she will have to stay on clear liquids until she does get it down and cleaned out and if she doesn't do this, they won't do the procedure... well, we are all pulling our hair out right now.

And I have so many favorite quotes spirited away, that choosing one might take me two days!
