ABC Meme

*Yoy! What would I do without friends! Okay, marriage date changed, quote added. Please tell me I didn't miss anything else!!

Because I was so busy this weekend, I barely came up for air, and because with a bit of coersion, Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee tagged me for this meme, and because I didn't really have to think, that's just too hard for today, I give you an ABC Meme. As you can tell by the title it's a long one so go grab a cup of coffee or tea, relax and settle in. Here goes:

A - Available or single: Definitely unavailable as I've been married to beloved hubby for 23 years.
B - Best Friend: Beloved Hubby and a couple of close girlfriends.
C - Cake or Pie: Definitely pie. Would love to taste this lady's pies.
D - Drink of choice: Well do I really need to say? I'll give you all three guesses and the first two don't count.
E - Essential Item you use everyday: computer, telephone, coffee pot, southern butter pecan creamer, oh and blow dryer, eye shadow, oil of olay
F - Favorite color: mostly greens and mauves, but I like red too.
G - Gummy Bears or worms: not a big gummy fan, would much rather have a mojo
H - Hometown: a nice little city in the best province in Canada.
I - Indulgence: A massage, although I haven't had one for going on 3 months because my therapist can't work nights or weekends anymore. :v( Also a valencia orange mocha, or white chocolate mocha or cinnamon dolce. A brand new book.
J - January or February: January. It's the start of a brand new year.
K - Kids & Names: Teen Girl, Strapping Son, Tweenie Girl
L - Life is Incomplete Without? Jesus, and my family
M - Marriage Date: June 18, 1983
N - Number of Siblings: One
O - Oranges or Apples: Oranges, especially mandarins, unless it's in an apple crisp or pie
P - Phobias or Fears: wasps, hornets
Q - Fave Quote: this is subject to change but for today it is: "The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, or ethnic background, is that we all believe we are above-average drivers." - Dave Barry
R - Reason to Smile: Christmas is coming, pre-schooler's laughter, loving family
S - Season: Fall. Except for the wasps.
T - Tag 3 or 4 people: Barbie, Eden, Karla
U - Unknown Fact about Me: Typing relaxes me
V- Vegetable You Don't Like: Lima Beans
W - Worst Habit: As my kids & hubby would testify, repeating myself a dozen times when I'm trying to make a point
X - Xrays: ribs and breast bone where they connect, legs
Y - Your Fave Food: pizza
Z - Zodiac Sign: Sorry don't do horoscope stuff. I figure God's mapped out my life why mess with it.

This was fun! :D

But did I detect an error...your marriage date in 2003? I'm guessing, 1983, right?
Maybe it just seems like it's only been 3 years since you're so in love! ;)

Susanne said...

See it's a good thing I didn't post something where I really had to think or who knows what would have happened! Sheesh!

Thanks, Tammy, for being so on the ball! It's corrected now.

Carol said...

Wot? No favorite quote?

The cool thing about memes is getting to know folks a little better. That, and having something post when your mind is as blank as mine usually is.

Air Force Family said...

Hey Susanne!

My meme is complete, I hope I did it right?!!? lol
I was wondering the same as Tammy and Carol. lol
Hope you have a great day!

Tammy said...

Heehee...That's OK Susanne- I am always making typing errors in my posts and I usually find them like a day later...

Thank you so much for your prayers about tomorrow! (((HUGS)))

Great List! I agree about the horoscope stuff. I'm going to be trying that orange mocha thing you keep mentioning--the next time I am at our local coffee shop!


Beck said...

Eww, lima beans. Do you know that I have never been to your province? How did I manage that? And your quote made me laugh.

Shalee said...

Amen on the lima beans. Yuck.

And you get yourself on down here for one of my pies. I'll serve it with the only correct guess for "D".

Barb said...

You don't like lima beans? Uh oh. I'm not sure we can be friends. I eat them cold right out of the can.

OK. Since I loved all your other answers, we can be friends. :-)

What a fun meme. I love getting to know more about you.

Islandsparrow said...

Hey now...I may have to challenge you on the "best province in Canada"!!

We can dual over coffee

I could tell where to email you privately, but I SOOOOOO THOUGHT OF YOU ALL LAST NIGHT. I went to see the movie Christmas 3 "The Escape Clause" is playing there?

"Thoes are not little people they are Canadians!"

"Ah those are not Canadians they are Elves."

sorry this US gal had some laughs but they were nice Canadian jokes =)))

Thanks so much for tagging me:):):) I will let you know when I post my meme.

Wow 28 years of marriage, how encouraging to see!!!

Linda said...

Great post. I love these memes because I get to know people better. I love the quote. That Dave Barry is a hoot!! And I love your answer about the zodiac sign - just great.

momrn2 said...

I'm an orange fan too, especially mandarins. Yummy...

I tend to repeat myself when making a point and I don't do horoscope either.

Just a few of the many things we have in common. :-)

Kelly said...

I enjoyed getting to know you a bit--these memes are so much fun. I think I might do this one.

I am cracking up at your comment about repeating yourself to make a point--I do that, too!

hi Susanne!

Thanks for tagging me! This was my first meme.

I hate lima beans too, but brussel sprouts even more!


Anonymous said...

But I AM an above average driver. You made me laugh again, Susanne. Enjoy your coffee without me this time. I'm on Day 8. Can you believe it? It's a miracle, truly.

Anonymous said...

That was fun to read Susanne :)

I have no favorite quote to share in my meme either, it's either a bunch of them or none at all.... LOL

Have a wonderful day,

Linda said...

As the other wisely astute LINDA has said, "that Dave Barry is a hoot!" and because you thought of him, you are a genius. thanks for doing this!

Linda said...

Want to share this with my kids. Baby Girl will love it.

I received this thru the grapevine too. Mine will be up soon enough...
