I decided to do an A to Z, the idea I stole from messymimi, who has a most excellent blog. (click the link. I'll wait.)
Age- I always have to figure this out. I think this shows how much I care. Or, ask my Mom, she always says she was there... Anyway, if I have figured it right, I am 45. Or 6. Somewhere thereabouts...
Bed Size- Queen, I think. I liked my Super single water bed, but after we were married, Husband slept on it. Once. That's when we bought a new bed. Between he being overheated (I am perpetually cold), and more than a little awkward feeling getting in and out of the bed, it was pretty much a no go from the start...
Chore I hate- Trying to get all the blasted cobwebs from the ceiling and corners. I think I have them all, then I walk past a doorway to have this nasty little wisp float by my face. EEEEEEEEeeeeeewww!
Dogs- Yep. Rudee's the name, french fries are his game. And squeaky toys. A half lab, half German Shepard ball of happy. (One time the vet wasn't paying attention, I told him that Rudee was half German Shepard, half Clydesdale. He was 3/4 through with the paperwork before he registered what I had said... The expression was priceless!)
Essential start to my day- Some would say tea. More importantly, GLASSES. I have about 20/850 vision, so if my glasses aren't on, I could walk into a wall and probably not see what it was... :P
Favorite color- Red. LOOOOVE red.
Gold or silver- Depends upon what I am wearing. If I am in "uniform", I wear silver, as it's black, with silver details. If I am wearing red, or other bright colors, I would wear gold. Then again, I have been known to wear copper, as well... Go figure.
House or Apartment- When I was fresh out of college, I would have said apartment. I enjoyed (most) of the neighbors, and felt part of a community. Now, having animals, and a garden that I grow for several people each year, I think the house works a bit better. Llamas, chickens, a dog and cat in a 1 bedroom apartment might be a tad much...
Instruments played- I have tried the guitar. I need to go back to it, I enjoyed it. NOTE: it says played, not played well.
Job Title- Volunteer Receptionist. Nosy lady. The gal that works with the Sheriff's Office. Head cookie maker. The one who makes the house smell good (on cookie making day...).
Kids- I have thought about some pygoras, and perhaps a few Cashmeres, but haven't gotten around to it. Oh. and I don't have any children, either.
Live- Uh. Last time I checked... I live in Oregon. Love it here.
Married- Yep, since '91, to a Husband I call Fuzz or Fuzzy, (he has a pronounced beard) but not when I am around the deputies. Man, does THAT cause some funny looks... eep.
Never Again- Car accident, or surgeries, if I can avoid them. But mostly the first...
Other fun fact- If I want to wig someone out, I can turn one foot completely 180 degrees from front. I have been known to do this if I am getting tired of talking on a topic, because it has one of two effects on viewers. Either they are grossed out, and leave, or they are freaked out, and ask me why I can do it. (I have no kneecap on that side, so no physical stop to the side motion...)
Pet peeve- Feeling like I don't understand something that I should. Math has this effect on me regularly. Less so than it used to, living with a machinist that makes his living with same, but still...
Quote- "Sure as night will follow day, most things I worry about never happen anyway..." Tom Petty (You knew I had to get him in there at least once, right?)
Righty or Lefty- Righty. Almost completely incompetent lefty, except when I cross stitch...
Siblings- No. Unless you count the fact I have a sibling rivalry going on with a character I perform at faire. I have been told that she is much more interesting and vibrant than I am...
Time I wake up- I have been waking up about 6.30am of late, but I also am sleeping in spurts. If I sleep through, I generally wake sometime before 5. Have been known to wake up as early as 3, but I don't need to, so I tend to roll over and go back to sleep.
Veggies I dislike- Raw Onions. I like most veggies... And I like onions, if cooked, so. Meh.
What makes you run late- Not planning ahead, mostly. If I don't get all my things together the night before, I am usually wondering where I put x, and y, and then I will leave, then need to come back to the house to pick up z... (Yes, I am a ditz.)
X-rays- Had too many, don't really want more. I believe I have even posted one or two on the blog.
Yum food- (sorry messymimi!) Mushrooms. Yes, they are a fungus. Still like 'em. Sauteed in butter. Little garlic. I'm good. Also, chocolate.
Zoo Animal Favorite- Big cats. Tiger, Lion. And according to my family, I was in love with a white chicken when I went to the zoo as a small child. To the point that I didn't pay any attention to the other animals!
So, there ya go.
