The ABC's of Me

[Image Source]
Ayana had this on her blog.  I thought it was pretty cool and since it's been quite some time since I've done an activity like this, I thought I'd give it a try.  So here goes:

A. Age: 35.  Birthday: 9-25-76.
B. Bed size: Queen, finally!  lol
C. Chore that you hate: It seems I hate the other half of most chores:  Washing clothes (fine); Folding and putting them back (hate).  Washing dishes (ok).  Putting them away (why bother).  But, I force myself to do them because otherwise I'd have to evict myself.
D. Dogs: No.  Never. 
E. Essential start to your day: Hot shower.  I'm so not a morning person, that I need something to wake me up.
F. Favorite color:  It used to be purple, but now I like just about every color but those melony - peachy ones.
G. Gold or Silver:  Silver.  But really?  Are we talking colors or jewelry here?  Then I'd have to change my answer and say white gold.
H. Height: 5'2
I. Instruments you play: technically piano and flute.  I started taking piano lessons in 5th grade through some point in college.  Piano will always be my favorite instrument.  I guess I should practice.  I got the bright idea to take flute lessons in my adult life.  Love the flute with the piano.  Gorgeous music.  Got through a book and called it quits although at the time I didn't realize I was doing that.  Scheduling practice time was a bit much.
J. Job title: Teacher.
K. Kids: No.  Not unless you count the 65 that I teach each day.
L. Live: NC
M. Mother's name: Stella
N. Nicknames: Libby (although I've been called many variations of that over the years)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Yes, my spring hospital scare.  Glad that's over with.  I don't like hospitals.
P. Pet peeve: SMACKING and GUM POPPING!!!!  (I literally have to close my eyes and channel that noise elsewhere because it really drives me nuts!)
Q. Quote from a movie:   "Nothing but death can keep me from here!"  ~ The Color Purple
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: One brother
T. Time you wake up: around 6 A.M. on weekdays and around 7 A.M. on weekends, but both times are too early for me.
U. Underwear:  Of course!
V. Vegetable you hate:  Beets
W. What makes you run late:  You know it's my fault.  Staying up too late because I don't want to let go of the day.  Moving too slowly when I first get up because I don't want to be up just yet.  Then doing that last little thing that always takes a little bit longer than I anticipated.  But somehow I still get to work on time.
X. X-Rays you've had: my teeth, foot, chest, and hopefully my hand because that thing still hurts!!!!
Y. Yummy food that you make: baked goods, although I could probably do more cooked things if I tried.  There are always requests for Congo Bars and Sour Cream Pound Cake.
Z. Zoo animal: I'm fine with any of them as long as they remain on the other side of the fence so I can photograph them.

Feel free to do this activity on your blog.  I'd love to read more about you!


  1. Oh I am going to do this too, of course. I didn't know you played piano, you talented girl!

  2. Yay, you did it! I love knowing this type of random information ;). I am so jealous of your instrument playing ability. And what is a Congo Bar? Sounds delicious!

  3. WOW! You're 5'2" - I never would have guessed that! I also love your mother's name, and we are the same with running late...I'm always late because I'm staying up late, or I forgot one last thing.

  4. Cool beans! If I get brave I'll give this a go. Hum the piano...Now I must hear you play. :o) I play too!
