I got this from KJ and Jos. I thought I could use a little fun and lighten up a bit, so here goes:

A is for age: 55, though inside I feel 25, my body does feel pretty much 55 :-).

B is for beer of choice: I don't like beer, the one I least hate is a dark ale, champagne is my drink of choice, but I rarely drink liqueur.

C is for career: Can you call something you make very little money at a career? I am an artist and I do a whole list of things that I am self employed doing, Managing, cleaning, cooking, running errands, shipping and packing.

E is for Essential item(s) you use everyday: Furbabies, Ok, I don't "use" them, but they are essential, tooth brush, hair brush, paint brush :-), pencils & Paper, my espresso maker.

F is for Favorite song at the moment: Anything by Sting, actually I don't listen to much music or anything, these days I prefer silence.

H is for How About Whatever Favorite I Choose: Favorite TV show: Fringe. I don't have cable or satellite, but I rent dvds and have a friend tape them off his computer, so I am always up to date. I LOVE this show almost as much as I loved LOST.

G is for favorite Game: Chess, I am not very good and I rarely play, but it is the only board game I like, My favorite real game is hide and seek :-).

I is for Instruments played:When I was young I played piano and in my teens I taught myself to play "Court and Spark" on the guitar, I have forgotten how to do both at this point.

J is for favorite Juice: cranberry

K is for Kids: I have no children, but I currently have 3 furbabies, Zeus, Max and Zoe, and one little sweetie of a great Nephew named P.

L is for last kiss: I can't even remember the last real kiss, likely 3 or 4 years ago cause that is how long I have been boyfriendless, but I kiss all my friends.

M is for marriage: Never been. I have met "The One", but it did not work out, so I will most likely never marry and I am fine with that, never been lonely a day in my life.

N is for full Name: I will never tell :-).

O is for Overnight hospital stays: one at age 6 when my tonsils were removed, that's it!

P is for phobias: Just 2, doctors and public speaking.

Q is for quote: What you resist persists.

R is for biggest Regret: That it did not work out with the man I love.

S is for sports: Running and tennis.

Time you wake up: varies: usually by 7:00 am, sometimes 8 on weekends, occasionally 5 or 6 am, which is my favorite time of all.Kj we have the exact same wake up schedule :-).

U is for color underwear: most often black. And they don't ever match. Lately I bought multi colored underwear and I love it.

V is for Vegetable you love: Asparagus

W is for Worst Habit: impatience

X is for X-rays you’ve had: dental, that's it.

Y is for Yummy food you make: Chocolate cupcakes

Z is for Zodiac sign: Pisces, what else could I be?

Whew, that took a while. Happy Weekend! XOXO

this was alot of fun to read annie! it does seem like a lot of work and i appreciate your taking the time to do it. it's always fun to see our similarities as well as our differences :)


marianne said...

Nice to read these list. Yours as well and I agree with Lori about the differences and similarities :)
and with KJ that it is fun!
I also love Sting!

Jos said...

Good Morning Annie! Loved this post. So ... we shall eat asparagus and play chess. And then we shall chat in french (which I warn you now I am appallingly bad at).

You are an artist Annie. If you look historically many great artists did not make a whole heap of money. The thing is that you are true to yourself, and true to your talent. I think you have a very special gift.

What you resist persists. That is so soooo true. Really must learn to accept more.

Love you Annie, have a happy day :)
Sqwooshy hugs (I've decided that's the way to spell it) xx Jos

Hi Annie! That must have taken awhile. :) I love my furbabies, too. I wake up at 7am very naturally, but during the school year I have to wake up at 6, and I'm not a fan. I like it to be just getting light when I wake up. Getting up in the dark, blech. haha! Love Sting. Love your independence! And I agree, you are an artist, Annie. A good one. xox! Pam

But I wanted to come & say hi. hope you aren't working too hard, are enjoying time w/ Zeus and not getting blown away by our crazy winds!

soulbrush said...

wonderful to find out more about you.

Kate P said...

I had the hugest crush on Sting when I was a teenager! And Pisces are such nice people. :)

What a fun ABC. Lovely to learn more about you. We have Fringe here too. Not even Van Gogh was appreciated in his life time Annie.

Sting began as a teacher in the NE. I like his stuff right from his Police days too.
