Alphabet meme

My blogging friend, Mari, had this meme on her blog, and I thought it would be a fun (and easy) way to complete the "25 random things about me" meme that I've been tagged to complete a million times on Facebook.  And since there are 26 letters in the get a bonus.  To see more random things about me, see this post.

A is for your age: 31
B is for your burger of choice: half pound, done medium, with cheese, ketchup, and occasionally bacon (yeah, I'm a real health nut).  
C is for the car that you drive: Honda Accord
D is for dog's name: I love visiting others' dogs, but we're not really animals in the house kind of people.
E is for an essential item you use each day:  right body pillow (only a few more weeks!).
F is for your favorite television show: Lost or The Office
G is for favorite game: Ping pong (if that counts).  Right now, Patrick and I are into Blokus (I never win, which usually means I quickly hate the game, but for some reason, I like this one.  Our scores are usually only a few points apart).  Favorite Facebook game is Scramble (Hi Kristen!).
H is for hometown: Manheim, PA
I is for instruments played:  Flute, piano, and a little guitar
J is for favorite juice: white grape
K is for what you'd like to kick: mean people
L is for last restaurant you dined at: Pomo Grille
M is for your favorite muppet: The critics  
N is for number of piercings you have: just one in each ear (and that's all I want)
O is for overnight hospital stays: 1 (when my baby girl was born)
P is for people you were with today: Patrick, Adeline, my parents, and my parents' friends (Mike and Kay Fisher).
Q is for what you do in quiet times: SLEEP, read, pray, blog, scrapbook.
R is for regrets: No big ones...I've learned from most of the mistakes I've made...not sure why I have to make some of them several times to get the lesson.
S is for status: not sure what they're going for here...I have been happily married for 7 1/2 years.
T is for time you woke up today: 7 am
U is for what you consider unique: people's taste (in clothes, food, decor, beliefs, etc).  I love to "people watch."
V is for favorite vegetable: I really love most of them.  Potatoes (although I know that doesn't REALLY count), edemame, snap peas, carrots, mixed vegetables (the organic ones from Costco) with Velveeta cheese. 
W is for your worst habit: sarcasm 
X is for x-rays you have had: dental, my leg (when I broke it at age 16)
Y is for yummy food you ate today: My homemade blueberry pie with ice cream.
Z is for zodiac sign: I don't believe in this stuff or even know what any of the signs mean.  I only found out what mine was after college at my first job.  I'm a Virgo.  I have no idea what Patrick or Adeline's signs are....and I don't care.

You're right - that was a good way to do your 25 random things. I enjoyed reading this and didn't realize the baby was coming so soon! I'm wondering what Blockus is?

Growin' with it! said...

love reading you want to kick "Mean people"...laughed at that one. these are always so much fun to read and learn more about bloggers.

from an old flute player, who loves LOST, too!

Momma Roar said...

Ah yes, the critics - loved them too. But then, I'm a sarcastic type of person too - no wonder!! ;) Can we blame the sarcasm on the muppets?

Lynn, This is interesting! Hope to see you soon. JJ

Just Mom said...

Yes, Lynn, potatoes most definitely count as vegetables. So does ketchup. That means if you happen to have french fries with ketchup, you're actually eating health food.

Just Mom's logic. :-D

Kristen said...

yeah - this was so fun. i loved reading it and learning more about you.

i LOVE potatoes too even if they don't really count.

scramble, word twist, pathwords - i love playing all of those games with you :o) keep the challenges comin' friend!

LOL at the answer to what you'd like to kick. I know my comment is coming a few weeks late -- I think I'm *finally* getting caught up on my Google reader.

How are you feeling???
