ABC's of Me ~

I spoke to my son this morning on IM. He got the surgery done to close the whopping big holes left from wearing those massive earrings, making him ready to join the marines. OMG, he's really going to do it. He wants out of the valley and to be doing something exciting. Please God, look after my son!! On Sunday, he leaves for boot camp in San Diego.

I've sworn to myself that I will mow the lawns today before work. They've scheduled me for a dinky 4-8 shift so there's no excuse for not getting out there. Unless of course, it rains or Jason's truly muffed up the lawnmower. I managed to fix it last time though...

In the meantime, to let you know I'm still alive over here...

ABCs of me

Accent: I don't think I have an accent... YOU'RE the ones with an accent! I sound like every other southern california american, just like the folks on the tv ;)

Booze: I rarely get drunk.. but I like beer and whisky/ginger, jack & coke, a blended margarita, back or white russians and my dad's gin & tonic
Chore I Hate: vacuuming the inside of the car
Dog or Cat: I love them both!

Essential Electronics: the computer... must have my fix
Favorite Cologne: I really like Avon's Haiku... but Avon over here doesn't carry it. Last time, I ordered online thru an american site and had it shipped to Sus' house. Picked it up on the next visit. What a pain.

Hometown: Flathead valley, Montana
Insomnia: it's hard for me to feel sleepy, though I have no probs sleeping

Most Admirable Traits: I listen, I care, I'm not pushy
Number of Sexual Partners: two girls as a youngster 'experimenting', one man = former husband, one former gf and Lynne
Overnight Hospital Stays: Twice, childbirth
Phobias: moths. Why do they fly straight to me when they're anywere near? Writhing fish also gross me out. Don't look for an aquarium here!
Quote: Moderation in all things, including moderation - Ben Franklin
Religion: baptised Lutheran.. but organized religion turns me off
Siblings: Kelly, my younger sis

I'll see if I can't persuade Lynnie-Lou to do an ABC's too.. and post it here :)

Hello, fellow artichoke lover ;-)

I'd say the 'most admirable traits' are right on target... those count for much.

Nice list!

Awwwwww! Hugs mom. I'd offer to meet your son here but he will probably be way too busy and excited doing all that boy bonding to meet an old broad he never even heard of ;^)

I love chocolate cake. I love chocolate! LOL I have a southern accent. As far as veggies are concerned, I like tomatoes, potatoes, and green beans. It's a southern thing. I like gravy and grits too. :)
