ABCs and Me

Seems like ages since I've done a meme...found this one at Hairy Shoe Fairy and decided it might just be time to do another one. Aren't you lucky?

  • A. Age: 29.95 plus shipping and handling. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
  • B. Bed size: Queen. Although we could probably get away with having a Twin since the Man insists on sleeping on my side of the bed.
  • C. Chore you hate: It's a tie between mopping the floor and cleaning the shower. Both are semi-painful due to my Bionic-ness.
  • D. Dogs: Wish I had one! The Man says we have to wait until Baby is potty-trained...something about only one thing pooping on the floor at a time. But I've always loved dogs, especially really big ones.
  • E. Essential start to your day: Hugs. I have a much better mind-set when I've given everyone a hug and told them how much I love them. Keeps my priorities straight.
  • F. Favorite color: A nice deep blue. Not navy and not electric.
  • G. Gold or silver: Silver. Definitely.
  • H. Height: 5 feet 3 inches. Yeah, I'm short. Dynamite comes in small packages.
  • I. Instruments you play: Does the radio count? One of these days, I really ought to take piano lessons with my kids.
  • J. Job title: Domestic Goddess. Seriously, you try doing this job without the aid of supernatural powers.
  • K. Kids: Three. Boo, Boy and Baby. And we're done.
  • L. Live: In Utah. Never thought I'd be here longer than it took to finish college. I graduated 11 years ago. Must be my addiction to fry sauce that keeps me here.
  • M. Mom’s name: Mom? Not really sure what I'm supposed to put here...Seems like my name is less frequently "Mom" and more like "Mooooooooooooooom!"
  • N. Nicknames: Jessica G., Jess, Jessie (but you're not allowed to call me that unless we are blood relatives), and Jessica-messica. That last one is from my mom. It's not entirely unfounded.
  • O. Overnight hospital stays: For the past 12 years, the only time I've been in a hospital overnight was when I had a baby. Now, before that, it gets a little more interesting, being Bionic and all.
  • P. Pet peeve: When people say they could care less. When I try to correct them, they say it's perfectly acceptable both ways. No. No, it's not. Then there would be no reason to say it at all! Find yourself a new catch phrase, my misguided friend.
  • Q. Quote from a movie: "Mmmmm...chicken, good!" - Leelu, The Fifth Element. I say this anytime I am dealing with chicken. My kids think I'm nuts.
  • R. Right or left handed: Right.
  • S. Siblings: Four brothers and two sisters.
  • T. Time you wake up: I get up in time to make sure Boo isn't going to school in the same outfit she wore yesterday and that she gets out the door in time to make the school bus. I've been known to go back to bed if Baby isn't awake yet. I am so not a morning person.
  • U. Underwear: Umm, yes?
  • V. Vegetables you dislike: All of them! Well, that's not true...I really like that purple cabbage and carrots and corn, although someone told me once that corn isn't actually a vegetable. Never cared enough to check their facts, though.
  • W. What makes you run late: My laptop. It sucks me in and traps me there until I've checked my email, looked at Facebook, and maybe read a news article or two. It's that and my horrible sense of timing.
  • X. X-Rays you’ve had: Lots on my shoulder. Wanna see 'em? Come on over! Bring the popcorn.
  • Y. Yummy food you make: Believe it or not, but I can't really cook. At least, not beyond the basics. Now, ask me if I can bake and I will totally school you.
  • Z. Zoo- favorite animal: Beluga whales. Not your typical zoo animal. I love those gorgeous, graceful, odd-looking creatures!
I'm not going to officially tag anyone because I don't want to cry if they won't accept. Please feel free to take this one and link back in the comments if you do it!

I love fry sauce. It totally doesn't exist out here on the east coast, but I have happy memories of my fry saucy time in Utah.

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Great list! I didn't think I'd live in Utah longer than college either and I could care less about fry sauce. Though, I also like corn. :)

Kristina P. said...

Yes! I finally realized it was "couldn't care less" about last year, and am now nitpicky.

Sami said...

Hey! I need some fry sauce! I didn't realize it until you said that. What do you think the odds are, I can find some online?
How do I not know about your bionic-ness? Explain???
I'm totally not a morning person either. People who claim to be are LYING!!!
Kids aren't supposed to wear outfits two days in a row?
I'm stealing your age. That sounds so much better than 30 something!

What?!? I can't call you Jessie anymore? :( So sad.....seeing as how I am not a blood relative. This is me pouting about it. I will purposefully forget about that if I see you again. :) Loved the ABCs!! You are such a fun person. And I have never tried fry sauce.

Jessica G. said...

Kristie - You've known me since I was a size 4. That practically makes us relatives. You can call me Jessie.

Kristie said...

Oh, thank you!!! Doing a happy dance about that!! Love you my dear friend. You are awesome! :D

Fry sauce is a completely valid reason to stay. "I could care less" and many other grammatical things are big pet peeves for me. I love this meme!
