Stolen from Men-In-Full and customized a bit:
A is for Age: 32
B is for Booze: Alas, right now I am off the booze, except for the four days a month I just know I can’t get knocked up. When I’m on it, it’s Bailey’s. Yes, I can go through the big bottle in four days. And do.
C is for Career: Which I don’t have, and don’t particularly want. I have come to the conclusion in the last couple of years that I want to go somewhere a few days a week (certainly not all of them), where I do tasks that are meaningful let able to be left at work, and where they pay me handsomely. I’m working on it.
D is for Diana: Which is my name
E is for Essential items to bring to a party: Some sort of food thing to share. The last “party” I went to was a gathering to celebrate the engagement/pregnancy of my sister-in-law, and my father-in-law requested my grandma’s Orange Delight Salad. If you guessed that there is Jell-O and whipped cream involved, you are right!
F is for Favorite movie of 2007: I think I only saw two movies in the theater last year, and they were both good. The latest Harry Potter and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Wait! I also saw Into Great Silence, and it might have been the best documentary ever.
G is for Ganesha: Who is another deity I don’t worship. But I love the arms.
H is for Hometown: That’s a loaded question. I have lived in more than 25 places, and don’t really call any of them a “hometown”. Right now, I live in Minneapolis, and as I never plan on giving up my house, I guess that will be my hometown.
I is for Instrument you play: I tried to learn to play the guitar, but my parents would never let me practice. They are are not into the noise thing. I gave up lessons as it was pointless if I couldn’t play more than one hour a week. I did sing all the way though high school. Apparently I don’t suck that much at it.
J is for Jam or Jelly you like: I’m not actually a fan of jam or jelly. I don’t mind it on a scone with some clotted cream, but that’s about it.
K is for Kids: I’m working on it, people. I’m working on it!
L is for Living arrangement: My beloved husband and I live in a 1914 bungalow in North Minneapolis with Boris and Checkers, our cats, and Furrow, the hedgehog.
M is for Meatloaf: A food I enjoy, but don’t make, mostly because the recipe I have is complete crap.
N is for Nights: When my husband works, so I get the bed all to myself. (I’d rather have him there.)
Overnight Stay in a Hospital: Only once or twice, when my throat has been swollen. I usually swell overnight, and have to go to the hospital in the morning, so mostly I spend the day there instead of the night.
P is for Pickles: I love them, and eat lots of them. That is, when Sarah hasn’t recently been at my house and eaten them all.
Q is for Quote you like: I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be – Douglas Adams
R is for Relationship status: Married for almost ONE WHOLE YEAR to the best husband ever, Jeff.
S is for Sunshine: Which has not been seen in these parts for a long time, and needs to be a regular guest.
T is for Texas, ever been?: I drove through on the way to and from my grandparents’ house in Arizona. All I remember is miles and miles of cow ass.
U is for Unique trait: Apparently I have an infectious giggle. And I can wiggle my ears.
V if for vegetable you love: Oh, I love about all the green vegetables, but I have a special place in my stomach for Brussels sprouts.
W is for Writing: Something I need to do more often.
X- is for X-rays you’ve had: Mostly to see if I have broken ribs. The last time I broke one there was too much “breast shadow” to tell…apparently that’s doctor’s speak for “your tits are too big for us to see through.”
Y is for Yummy food you make: I would say, and many would agree, that beef stroganoff is my piece de resistance. My sister-in-law Racheal is fond of my lasagna, my father-in-law loves my biscuits, and my beloved likes the chicken and pesto thing I make. No one goes hungry in my house.
Z is for Zodiac sign: Aries
