It didn’t start snowing until almost 4pm but it’s supposed to dump somewhere between 6-10″ on the area. How I wish it were Saturday night instead of Sunday so I wouldn’t have to worry about getting in to work tomorrow. Oh well. In my head, I can pretend we will be having a snow day and feign joy!
And on that note, let’s play Oddball! (Oh wait, I’m not Keith Olbermann, am I? Shucks.) Let’s play “Stolen Meme“:
Accent: I don’t think I have one but others have told me I sound very southern. I think that is from my eleven years in Richmond where I was so northern to them that I was known as “Northern Girl” or “Norty” for short.
Breakfast or no breakfast: Now that I am trying to eat healthier, it’s usually some Ezekiel cereal with almond milk and/or an orange.
Chore I donâ€™t care for: Does the word ‘housecleaning’ pretty much cover it?? Mostly, I hate cleaning the kitchen, if I had to pick one.
Dog or Cat: Cat. No question. I love my dog a lot but my heart belongs to my kitty cats.
Essential Electronics: Laptop and Ipod touch. (That was two, I know. Sorry, both are essential.)
Favorite Perfume: I love Opium but wonder if I should update it to something less 1980.
Gold or Silver: Silver always. I loved gold earlier in my life but somewhere in my 40s I switched to silver. The vibration fits me better.
Handbag I carry most often: I only ever have one at a time. I think I am monogamous to my bags.
Insomnia: I wake up several times during the night but usually go right back to sleep. Nothing for a long period of time.
Job Title: Officially? Branch Service Manager Unofficially? Faxer and all around phone cog
Kids: Only the four legged variety but I do have one in heaven – that counts, doesn’t it?
Living Arrangements: A nice house on the eastern shore of MD with pets and love and nice neighbors.
Most Admirable Trait: A forgiving heart
Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: I’ve been told I was rather a bossy kind of child. I have no idea why they thought that! (tee hee)
Overnight hospital stays: Just one in 1997 for my gastric bypass surgery.
Phobias: Being laughed at.
Quote: “Be the change you wish to see in this world” – Ghandi
Reason to smile: I am well and truly loved.
Siblings: Not a one but have several cousins that are really like sisters to me.
Time I wake up: 6:00 or 6:30 am
Unusual Talent or Skill: I can hear angels and guides in spirits speaking to me. (No, I’m not insane, either. I don’t think, anyway.)
Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: Brussel sprouts – Mom said they were like little cabbages. Mom was wrong.
Worst Habit: I can be a very lazy, lazy slug (A habit The Gal herself and I share)
X-rays: I’ve had boobie ones and dental ones.
Yummy Stuff: brownies. MMMMMMM
Zoo Animal I Like Most: Giraffe (evil ones, even!)
HEY! I think you may have stumbled upon an important universal truth here. Women can either be bag monogamous (you), serial bag monogamous (one for and one for night), or a bag whore like me. Who knew we’d learn something so important today?
We share the same affinity for those specific electronics. I always thought that Brussels sprouts tasted an lot like broccoli.
