ABC's of Me

Everything you NEVER wanted to know about me . . .

--------------------------------------------------------

A - ADVOCATE FOR: Stopping LDS Fiction Writing. It seems harsh but I just can't stand LDS Fiction - I think too many people forget it's FICTION and expect endings that only Anita Stansfield can provide. (I'm sure Anita is a lovely person and I'm happy she is making a living for her family with her writing abilities)

B - BEST FEATURE: Mute Button. I know - I don't have that feature, but it's seems like if I had a list of features to choose from that's what I'd choose (for everyone but me!)

C - COULD DO WITHOUT: Stop Signs and Lane Changing Blinkers. Oh wait! I already do without those.

D - DREAMS & DESIRES: That Mitt Romney was still running for President. Man I miss the fingernail biting, number crunching, debate analyzing excitement every night! It was like the NBA playoffs every day ~ now I just can't stand to watch any of it.

E - ESSENTIAL ITEMS: A book, Palm Pilot, pencil & crossword puzzle book. These four things can get me through the longest road trip, high council Sunday, doctor's visit and my Stake Leadership Training meeting Thursday night!

F - FAVORITE PAST TIME: Playing ToonTown. Don't even bother finding this on the internet if you have addiction tendencies. It's like crack for stay at home moms disguised as a child's Disney game!

G - GOOD AT: Sarcastic remarks, flippant replies and some crafts.

H - HAVE NEVER TRIED: Actually saying the word "NO" when someone asked me to do something. I have practiced saying it in the mirror but it still hasn't worked.

I - IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS: "I'd buy your love" Any Barenaked Ladies' fans in the house? (hmmm .. . . not sure that came out right)

J - JUNKIE FOR: Stamp Collecting, HAM Radio, Gardening, Housework Checking my blog statistics. Sad, but true.

K - KINDRED SPIRIT: Debra Barone. Yup, she's my kindred spirit - and it shows no more evidently than on the Everybody Loves Raymond episode "Bad Moon Rising" (for which Patricia Heaton won an Emmy). I've provided a clip of this episode, but it comes with a language warning (not kidding about the warning!) . . . . Click HERE to watch it, it's scary how similar I am!

L - LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Doesn't it just seem counterintuitive to write down a little known fact about me on a blog that hundreds 20 people look at?

M - MEMORABLE MOMENT: I can't even begin to write something here, there's too many - both bad and good. But if you're super curious, come over and spend the day looking through scrapbooks with me and I could tell you my top four!

N - NEVER AGAIN WILL I: Say that I will NEVER do something. Come on, we all know I don't have enough self control to make a commitment like that.

O - OCCASIONAL INDULGENCE: Diet Coke. Bwhahahaha!

P - PROFESSION: Principal Home Manager in charge of Family Access, Growth and Security Solutions. Otherwise known as Mother.

Q - QUOTE: "Because Nice Matters"

R - REASON TO SMILE: Thinking back to my last body massage . . . . The masseuse kept jiggling my chubby legs. I said, "What's that suppose to be doing?" She said, "It helps you relax your muscles" I said, "It's only making me wish I had gone to the gym more!" We then shared a nice awkward laugh and I spent the next few minutes in hyper-flex mode on my legs. Ah . . . Good Times!

S - SORRY ABOUT: Sharing that last story!

T - TAG SOME FRIENDS: Umm . . This whole concept is too much like a Tupperware Party - If I write your name you are obligated to do this ABC thing. I can't bring myself to do it! I chose to do it of my own freewill, without being Tagged - you can too if you want.

U - UNINTERESTED IN: Nothing. I like to hear about anything - I think it's all interesting!

V - VERY SCARED OF: Snakes & Water. Nothing worse than a water snake!

W - WORST HABIT: Turning what could be a short blog into a long blog. Sorry!

X - X MARKS MY IDEAL VACATION SPOT: Any hotel with just Jeff & me in the room. Ok, vacations with the kids are great too, but we're talking "ideal". The kind of vacation where you're not feeding people, you're being fed. You're not doing the laundry, it's being done for you. You're not entertaining, you're being entertained. As long as it's a cockroach free, smoke free, highspeed internet, cable tv available hotel . . .I'm good!

Y - YUMMIEST DESSERT: The one with sugar or high fructose corn syrup in it. (Sorry, there's an exception . . . Pinto Bean Pie - you can't sugar that enough to make it work)

Z - ZODIAC SIGN: Aries. I'm not saying I believe in Zodiac Signs, but here's a few descriptions of what being an Aries means, you can decide if they sound like me.
  • Symbol: The Ram
  • Aries people are 'doers' rather than 'talkers'. They are the impulsive, act first, ask questions or have doubts later
  • Aries people love challenges. In fact, if everything is running smoothly, they are quite capable of going out and doing something (sometimes quite foolish) to rock the boat
  • Aries Secret Desire: To lead the way for others

why did I not ever realize that you are an Aries? No wonder we get along so well and actually understand each other. Aries Rock!

I've never heard a better version of the ABCs. My new favorite letters are now:

A: Don't forget your favorite author, Jack Weyland~
I: Love "Barenaked Ladies"--i just don't think there's anyway to say that for it to sound right ;)
K: Your "kindred spirit" sure is hysterical--and Raymond just about kills me!
R: ha ha ha...great story!

Wendy,
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I always love when I have a new reader and especially when they leave a comment! I read your latest post, which was great. I had not seen that before. Then I skipped over to the "ABC's of me." I love it. Did you come up with this or is it something I can steal...I mean copy? You are a funny girl. I love all of your answers. Not only do we share the same name, (though different spelling) we are both Aries, and LDS.
