Oh, Goody!

Typelittlea tagged me with the following alphabet. Why? Because I begged her to. That's how much I crave talking about myself.

A - Age: Yes, everyday...I can't seem to stop it.

B - Band listening to right now: Band? I guess this is a quiz for cooler people than me.

C - Career future: Lounge singer. Stand-up comic. Inspirational speaker. You know, the usual.

D - Dad’s name: Arthur.

E - Easiest person to talk to: David (was I supposed to say "God?")

F - Favorite type of shoe: Flip-flops or anything comfortable. Man, this is starting to depress me.

G – Grapes or Grapefruit: Grapefruit with lots of sugar.

H – Hometown: San Diego.

I – Instrumental talent: I played the piano as a kid, but I wasn't talented. I was even worse on clarinet. I'm decent at karaoke.

J – Juice of choice: One part cranberry to two parts lime seltzer. I drink it EVERY morning.

K – Koala Bear or Panda Bear: This one is impossible! It's like choosing between my husband and my child! (see my profile)

L - Longest car ride ever: From Northampton, MA to San Diego, CA when I left UMass and headed west for UCSD. (1993)

M – Middle name: Hope. Cute, huh?

N - Number of jobs you’ve had: I couldn't possibly count, since I've been a temp and all my teaching jobs (15 years worth) have been limited contracts.

O - OCD traits: Must turn off all overhead lights. (I'm like Blanche DuBois: "I always depend upon the kindness of strangers.") I also have to open a new seltzer when there are two inches left in the last one, so the fridge is filled with near-empty bottles.

P - Phobia[s]: Claustrophobia, wicked bad in recent years. David was forced to flee the Seattle Underground Tour at a full gallop when I freaked out. And, judging by my operatic arias this past summer, any small, fast-moving creature that has infiltrated my living space.

Q - Quote: "50 percent of the stuff we worry about, never happens." -- Unknown

R - Reason to smile: Jarrah took her first hike today, and thought there might be a witch in the trees.

S - Song you sang last: "Rockabye Baby," believe it or not. That song is grim.

T - Time you wake up: Always earlier than I want to, but later than David, because he's my hero and gets up with the youngster.

U - Unknown fact about me: In second grade, I peed on the floor of Governor Brown's campaign headquarters.

V - Vegetable you hate: Asparagus.

W - Worst habit: Picking at my split ends.

X - X-rays you’ve had: Dental and abdominal.

Y - Yummiest food my belly likes: Cheeseburgers.

Z - Zodiac Sign: Scorpio.

Your answers were MUCH funnier than mine.

So now I must pout.

And Rock a bye baby is GRIM. No wonder she thought there were witches in the trees.

I've always amended 'Q' for Samantha's case and said it should be '90%'.

I love your K and U. Is R because of the last 48-Hour Project?

Sam said...

Cheri, I didn't even think of that! Could my child have a memory that good? If it's regarding chocolate, yes, but otherwise....?

She remembers. Some things impress more than others, like dinos in a bin and witches in the trees.

The child is excruciatingly brilliant, as you might have suspected.
