ABC's and 123's

Go in ABC order, answer the questions, and then tag 3!

A is for age: 41

"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age." --Sophia Loren, Italian film actress

B is for burger of choice: grilled, at home; however, once a year I get a craving for one of these:

C is for what kind of car you drive: a minivan
C is also for your favorite past vehicle: I have never owned one, but believe it or not I have a "thang" for motorcycles; I have a couple of good motorcycle stories . . . maybe in a later post

D is for your dog's name: don't have a dog; had a goldfish named Eric once

E is for essential item you use everyday: my espresso machine

F is for favorite TV show at the moment: Lost

G is for favorite game: to watch, soccer and football; to play, Upwords, Pictionary

H is for Home State: Georgia . . . peach season is here!

I is for instruments you play: guitar

J is for favorite juice: like Soutenus, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

K is for whose butt you'd like to kick: Hmmmmm

L is for last restaurant at which you ate: Panda Express at Six Flags

M is for your favorite Muppet: Kermit ("It's not easy being green")

N is for the number of piercings: two, one in each ear

O is for overnight hospital stays: 3, one for each pregnancy

P is for people you are with today: my sons, my husband

Q is for what you do with your quiet time: read, blog, write, hike

R is for biggest regret: not going into the medical field (not really a regret; more of a "what if?")

S is for status: married 17 years

T is for time you woke up today: 7 a.m. (we are all early risers)

U is for what you consider unique about yourself: I am half Italian, with a very British maiden name, that changed to a very Slovak married name. Oh, and I taught Spanish.

V is for vegetable you love: like Lisa, fresh tomatoes; I've always said that I could live on fresh tomatoes, crusty bread, a chunk of cheese, and some good, red wine

W is for worst habit: procrastination

X is for x-rays you've had: dental

Y is for yummy food you ate today: haven't eaten yet, but now that I've mentioned peaches I think I'll find the nearest peach stand

Z is for zodiac sign: Aquarius

I now tag mg, kathryn, and grandmak.

This is a fun tag, I'll post mine tomorrow!
I love that pic of you by the way! You'd never guess 40! Must be that latte machine keeping you young!!

Soutenus said...

Loved reading your answers!

Actually, you do look like a very young Sophia Loren.
Since I recently ate at Buca's and they have pictures of her everywhere it is fresh in my mind!

My Dad was Slovak! If you husband speaks Slovak tell him
"yahks ah mash." ("a" pronounced like father)
I do not know how to spell it. That was obviously, well, hopefully, phonetic. If my childhood Slovak is at all intact it should mean, "How are you?"

I have fun following these memes for a couple of days. I can't wait to read mg, kathryn and grandmak's!

Kermit's the man.

It was so fun reading your answers!

Karen said...

That's a fun way to get to know a whole lot about you.

Lisa said...

Love the picture, too, Bia! &:o) Your quiet time favorites are the same as mine ~ I forgot about hiking! And peaches! YUM! Can't wait for our Colorado peaches to be in season. We have a good while to wait for them here, though.
