Remember back when EVERYONE (and their mother) had a Myspace account? Of course this was pre-FB, but I remember it like it was yesterday!! I remember when all my friends would do the ABCs or any other 100 random question about themselves and then “make you” (or at least that’s what it felt like) post it on your page. So today at work (such a boring day), I was searching for information (websites/blogs/books/etc.) on the Paleo diet, and stumbled across this fantastic blog by Holly. One of her initial posts was about the ABC Slam Books, and it brought memories that I could just not resist to not do over. So here go the ABCs of me (my first post).
A – Available or Single? What kind of question is this? Aren´t they asking the same thing … or at least they aren’t opposites. I am happily married to the love of my life. Actually, to the second love of my life. My first love is my cat. José knows about this, it’s OK. So I guess I would be unavailable and unsingle, right?
B – Best friend? There is only a first for this: José. The second comes in not too far behind though, Moonch!! Husband tromps sister by just a wee hair …
C – Cake or Pie? Both (that´s an option right) I mean cheesecake, chocolate cake, pumpkin pie, key lime pie … I can’t choose.
D – Drink of choice? Coke Zero
E – Essential item you use every day? Perfume
F – What do you do for fun? Cook, watch TV, read, write, go out with the hubby or friends (whoever is available really), Facebook (I am so addicted)
G – Gummy bears or worms? Sour patch kids. I like sour candy … can I have sour gummy bears or worms?
H – Hometown? Born in Mugardos, Spain, but grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. So far away from each other … I hated the Atlantic Ocean for a long time. It kept me away from the g-parents, family, friends, and the man for so long …
I – Indulgence? Glass of good wine (not the cheap stuff), my pjs, and a good book. Doesn´t take much to make this girl happy.
J – January or February? January. The month of new beginnings, even if they are only for a month.
K – Kids and Names? No kids, and no names yet. We aren´t THOSE type of people who’s kids have names years before they’re born.
L – Life is incomplete without? Love and friendship.
M – Messy or Neat? Umm … depends. My house is neat (we are both allergic to dust), but my bedroom … messy (clothes are everywhere). We are also in between moves … It REALLY bothers me.
N – Number of Siblings? 1 Moonchers
O – Oranges or Apples? I feel healthier eating an apple (I don´t know why) … but I don´t do alot fruit.
P – Phobia / Fears? I absolutely hate spiders and closed spaces! Unless it’s when I go to bed, then I must be locked in my bedroom. Too many scary movies I guess.
Q – Favorite Quote? Do every act of your life as if it were your last – Marcus Aurelius
R – Reason to smile? Life is good. Weight is bad. Family is healthy. Love is amazing. Friends are fabulous.
S – Favorite Season? Summer (in Galicia, not in Madrid)
T – Favorite time of day? Night time.
U – Unkown fact about me? I am a third degree black belt in Taekwondo (Shhhh …)
V – Vegetable you don’t like? Brocolli. If brocolli didn´t exist, I wouldn´t miss it!
W – Worst habit? Never being able to hold my tongue. I pretty much say what I think AT ALL TIMES. It gets me in trouble
sometimes most of the time.
X – Xrays you’ve had? Umm … this is a weird question. My ankle is pretty screwed up. I fell on it with all the weight at 13, sprained it pretty bad to the point where I almost tore the tendons and muscles … luckily with crutches for 2 months (don’t ever give really a ADHD 13 year old crutches … bad idea) and physical therapy twice a week … I’m good to go … at least if I don´t move very much. I sprain it ever 6 months. I’m used to it.
Y – Your favorite food? My mother is 100% confident that I was Japanese and Italian in my previous lifetimes.
Z – Zodiac sign? Geminis. I don´t know if I have a twin, but I sure do have a splite personality that will go from super girlie (skirt, bows, makeup) to lets play hardcore football in 2 seconds. =)
I’m pretty sure this sums me up in a nutshell. I promise to write more tomorrow. =)
