Thursday Thingies

It's just barely Thursday here, but I'm having trouble sleeping so I thought I would go ahead and post. And.. since I really am tired, I'm going to do some creative stealing.

Here's a fun thing I've been seeing around the blogosphere and thought I would go ahead and attempt:

And, stolen from Marianne who stole it from Allie, I present the ABC meme:

A - Age: nearly 52 (yeah, I know, I can't believe it either)

B - Band listening to right now: nothing but absolute, blessed silence

C - Career future: Best-selling author, of course

D - Dad's name: Orville Nelson (is it any wonder everyone called him "Bud"?)

E - Easiest person to talk to: My husband

F - Favorite song: Depends on my mood

G - Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: Neither... weird texture.

H - Hometown: small town in south Georgia

I - Instruments: not any well

J - Job: stump monkey ;-)

K - Kids: Love 'em

L - Longest car ride ever: When I went to visit my friends, Sandye and Lyndon, in Texas... drove nearly straight through... 24 hours... never again! (not never again to visit Sandye and Lyndon... never again to driving that far without stopping overnight... lol)

M - Mom's name: Joyce Ann

N - Number of people you slept with: Last night, right? Hubby

P - Phobia[s]: dentist

Q - Quote: "Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead."

R - Reason to smile: I get to spend every day with Bob

S - Song you sang last: You are not going to believe this..."I'm Just a Little Black Rain Cloud" from Winnie-the-Pooh (did someone say I am supposed to be grown up???)

T - Time you wake up: Normally around 7

U - Unknown fact about me: When I was at a party at a Catholic college, I wanted to go wake the monks up so they could join the party.

V - Vegetable you hate: Beets

W - Worst habit: procrastination

X - X-rays you've had: I fell and hurt my foot one time... they thought it was broken, but it wasn't

Y - Yummy food: Chocolate, the fifth major food group

Z - Zodiac sign: Aries

I've seen this visual dna in several blogs but haven't tried it yet. It looks really interesting and fun to do. I'll try it later.

I'm an Aries too. :)

Winnie the Pooh, huh? And you don't have the excuse of a toddler running song wasn't much better! LOL...

I finished the book. It was very good. I like how I thought that I knew what was going on and then he switched it all up at the end. I knew that Mary didn't do it, but was suprised at who it was. Thanks!

Hi you left a comment on my post a young mom. I left an update post on my blog about her and her condition.. I thought you may like to know.. Also Chocolate can't possibly be the 5th food group because it's a part of another food group...veggies, after all it does come from a bean!

Oh I love the ABC thing...but, I want to know - did you actually wake up the monks, or did some one talk you out of it first??? Ha Ha.
