A-B-C's Of Me

Elaine and Jennifer have prepared this special meme for us; to help us jump into our time machines, and blog like it is 2006.

Old School Blogging

Alphabet Meme

A. Attached or Single? Attached. For ten (almost 11) years.

B. Best Friend? Is it too sickly sappy to say Thomas?

C. Cake or pie? I would like a piece of both, please.
Make my cake sweet and my pie tart, and I will be a happy woman.

D. Day of choice? Today. Bloom where you are planted, and all that.

E. Essential Item? If we are talking essential electrical item (which we should, because alliteration is always good), I would answer: my computer.
If we are talking about any essential item, I would answer: books.

F. Favorite color? Yellow.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Gummy bears.
I like to bite their little gummy heads off.

H. Hometown? Pensacola, Florida.

I. Favorite Indulgence? See C.
I like my indulgences with a heaping side of sugar.

J. January or July? January. It is my birthday month.
Plus, July is crazy hot and humid, and that is not fun at all.

K. Kids? Yep. One wonderful daughter.

L. Life isn’t complete without? Life is strange in that often the things you think you can't live without are exactly the things that are holding you back.

M. Marriage date? Which one? We've done this thing three times together, you know. The first date is July 12, 2002.

N. Number of brothers/sisters? I am the only one, but I have several sisters of my heart who bless me every day.

O. Oranges or Apples? Oranges.

P. Phobias? Not really.

Q. Quotes? I shared some of my favorite quotes recently.

R. Reasons to smile? Life. Chocolate. Ridiculously long emails with friends. Cuddles with my kid. A husband who loves me. Shelves full of books.

S. Season of choice? Autumn and Winter.
I like crisp, cold air, orange leaves, scarves and jackets, and not sweating through my shirt the moment I walk out my front door.

T. Tag 5 People: Tia. Teala. Jen. Cindy. Joules.

U. Unknown fact about me? Come on now, y'all. Bloggers don't have unknown facts, do they? At least not ones that they want to spread around.

V. Vegetable? Pumpkin pie? That is about as close as I need to get to a vegetable, thank you very much, and please pass the whipped cream.

W. Worst habit? Procrastination.

X. Xray or Ultrasound? I seriously do not understand this question. Do you mean would I rather operate an Xray or an Ultrasound? Or would I rather be on the receiving end of an Xray or an Ultrasound? As I do not want to even begin to calculate the bill that would come with either of those, I'm going to assume it is the former. I would rather operate an Ultrasound.

Y. Your favorite food? Mexican food.
Followed by copious amounts of dessert.

Z. Zodiac sign? Eye of the tiger. That is as close to the zodiac as I get.

Tell me some of your answers. Or all of your answers. Get your 2006 on.


  1. I didn't start my blog until 2008 .... but I still see plenty of these memes around the place! :)

  2. We share the same love for sweets. Dessert? Yes, please. :)

  3. I like the "bloom where you are planted". That's a good philosophy.

  4. I lived in Pensacola for 11 years! My dad and sister still live there.
    I also think I will do this meme tomorrow! Great to get to know about you!!

  5. Books! Yes, books are essential! And a better reason to smile is a bookshelf full of UNREAD books that all look so good you can't wait to jump in.

  6. Books and chocolate and love make me smile too! :-)

  7. This is fun! I love reading all about you! Operating an ultrasound is MUCH more fun than taking an xray. Good call!! --Lisa

  8. I have to do this - I forgot how fun these could be! Also, I start eating the heads from my gummy bears too. I know gummy worms shouldn't taste different, but they do.

  9. I love that, bloom where you are planted! :)

  10. Eye of the tiger is the best zodiac sign out there!

  11. A. Attached or Single? Attached. Even my middle finger, which was almost detached when I was 3. :D

    B. Best Friend? Missy muppet, my little dog. :)

    C. Cake or pie? Mmm. Sugar.

    D. Day of choice? Christmas!

    E. Essential Item? Essential for what? Like, are we talking desert island, I get one thing and that's it? 'Cause if so, I'm thinking like, some sort of container to hold water.

    F. Favorite color? Blue!

    G. Gummy bears or worms? Chocolate. :D

    H. Hometown? Loganlea, QLD, Australia.

    N. Number of brothers/sisters? Michael & Patrick

    O. Oranges or Apples? Apples. But really rockmelon & watermelon. :D

    P. Phobias? Spiders. But it's not really irrational, I *am* Australian.

    X. Xray or Ultrasound? Xrays are way less scary!

    Y. Your favorite food? Dessert. :D

    Z. Zodiac sign? Capricorn. It's so not accurate. Chinese year is dog, though, and that fits me better. :D

  12. Ahhh a slice of pumpkin pie sounds really good!

  13. I love Mexican food too, SO good!

    Thanks for playing along! :D

  14. "S. Season of choice? Autumn and Winter.
    I like crisp, cold air, orange leaves, scarves and jackets, and not sweating through my shirt the moment I walk out my front door."

    It's as though I wrote this myself. We still have temps in the 70's here but I'm longing for Autumn and Winter. I love that chill!

  15. Oh I love mexican food! I don't think it's sappy at all to have your husband as your best friend. That was my answer too. My girlfriends (even the lifers) don't know me as well as the dude I share a toilet with.

  16. Cake or pie? Ummmm Cupcakes all the way!!! Ohhhhh I remember when these were all the rage! I spent hours of my youth filling them out :)

  17. Loved your answer to U. So true! And yes, pass the pumpkin pie. Yum!

  18. Nice to learn a little about you - even though all people named Tracie(y)(ey)are just inherently cool. Glad I found you on #SITSsharefest. :)

  19. I will join in the dessert potion of this meme. Copious is how I do.
