The ABC's of Me - I'm BRILLIANT!

Yay for me! I've been given an award by the obviously perceptive and intelligent Sayre. I love getting blog awards, even if it is a little silly sometimes, and I love giving them even more. I think HER blog is brilliant, too. She has also tagged me with this wonderful ABC meme.

Attached or single? Attached to Steven.

Best friend? See above.

Cake or Pie? Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

Day of Choice? Friday. It's the end of the week, and every other week it's payday.

Essential Item? Cell phone.

Favorite color? Pink.

Gummy bears or worms? Bears.

Hometown? Same place I live now. (sigh)

Indulgence? Blogging.

January or July? July - my birthday month!

Kids? Yes. The usual 4 suspects: Joseph, Rachael, Daniel, and Aaron.

Life isn't complete.... without someone or someones to love.

Marriage Date? Um...I'm not married. But my first one was on June 20. My second one was on May 8. But the most important one is October 18 - not a marriage date, but the date I met Steven.

Number of Brothers and Sisters? 1 younger brother and 1 younger sister. My sister just turned 39 today!

Oranges or Apples? Oranges.

Phobias? Big dogs. Small, enclosed spaces.

Quote? No matter where you go, there you are.

Reasons to Smile? My kids, my boyfriend, my cats (especially the antics of the new kitten), my friends.

Season of Choice? Fall. I LOVE pumpkins!

Tag Seven People? Trukindog, LadyJaye, Amy, Poppy, Crys, Superwoman, Finn. ALL of you receive the Brilliant Weblog Award, and we get to learn more about you! Yay!

Unknown Fact? Gee...what haven't I told you people in the last two years? I love black olives. So much that I was once given a whole jar of them as a birthday present.

Vegetable? Asparagus.

Worst habits? Popping knuckles, rubbing my chin (long story), talking too much.

X-Ray or Ultrasound? Ultrasound, definitely.

Your favorite food? Chocolate. Followed closely by pasta in any form.

Zodiac sign? Cancer - the absolute worst sign to have: a disease no one wants followed by a grouchy animal.
I also tag Steven to do this one in the comments.
Tomorrow is a sad, sad day, folks. Tomorrow......I go back to work. (sniff)
Have a great day, all.


Crys said...

oh man. that's like THE ALPHABET

Finn said...

Aww, thanks! Look for this next week! Love that quote, btw.

Trukindog said...

Thanks J., I'll try to get to this this weekend.

Superwoman said...

Wow! My first award! I'll get to it on tuesday, when we are back from the funeral. And done with birthday parties (Cakes' party is on saturday).

Shen-Shen said...

Happy Birthday to your sister! And have fun going back to work.... :P

And I'm a cancer too and I agree.. A terrible name, haha.

Re: "Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting."

Add a scoop of French vanilla ice cream smothered in lots of hot fudge.

Sayre said...

I had trouble with that "unknown fact" too, seeing as I kind of let it all hang out on my blog. And some unknowns should STAY unknowns. The black olives thing made me laugh, though personally I cannot stand olives at all.

And I somehow wound up living in the same place I was born, again, after some time in Oklahoma. My next hometown will be somewhere NORTH away from the heat!

Crys - I have every confidence in you, girlfriend. I KNOW you can handle it.

Finn - You are very welcome. I can't wait to read your answers.

T-dog - I can't wait to see what YOU come up with.

Superwoman - I gave you your first award? Awesome! Happy Birthday early to Cakes!

Shen-shen - I'll have fun going back to work if you'll have fun going back to school...hee, hee.

Brother Dave - OMG, that sounds great! Quit tempting me!

Sayre - As for the unknown fact, I was torn between total random trivia and shocking, best-left-private facts. I went for the olive trivia. Glad I could make you laugh.
