I totally stole this from Dixie Chick, who stole it from somewheres else. We're all about the sharing here ...
Accent: What accent? I don't have one. It's all y'all who do.
Bra size: 36 A or B. Yeah, I have a broad back and little boobies. Ya wanna make something out of it??
Chore I hate: Cleaning the bathroom -- or cleaning anything, for that matter.
Dad’s name: Chester. Seriously. NO ONE is really named Chester.
Essential make-up: Concealer for the massive dark circles under my eyes. Nothing I do can fix them.
Favorite perfume: Don't have favorite, though my favorite scent would totally be vanilla.
Gold or Silver: Actually I really prefer gold, but for some reason, everything is turning out to be silver or white gold. Platinum would be nice, too. (Hi, honey!)
Hometown: Second-generation West Coastish.
Interesting fact: None of my four children were conceived using the same method. (One adopted, one artificial insemination, one GIFT, one the old-fashioned way.) And none of the three children I gave birth to have the same genetic father. Oh, and I gained one child by marriage (easiest birth ever!).
Job title: Features design chief. Sounds more glamorous than it is. Trust me.
Kids: three sons, one daughter, one stepdaughter who might as well have been my own.
Living arrangements: Four-bedroom townhome with a LOT of stairs, shared with the Wonderhubby, the two girls, the college boy, two dogs, two turtles, a rat (new addition following the death of the bearded dragon -- yuck) and countless freakin' FISH (I hate fish).
Mom’s Birthplace: West Coastish (Gawd, I'm so cagey).
Number of apples eaten in last week: 1
Overnight hospital stays: four -- for the birth of three children and the miscarriage of one more.
Phobia: Rodentia. Any kind of rodent, especially the rat kind. I loved the movie "Ratatouille," but the scene of the rats overrunning the kitchen totally did me in!
Question you ask yourself a lot: Why do I work here again? (Or, sometimes, on an exceptionally bad day: Why did I have children again?)
Religious affiliation: Jewish ... and quite possibly the most observant and religious one in my entire family.
Siblings: two brothers (a doctor and a lawyer) and one sister (an Indian chief). Oh, I kid about that last part. She is not really an Indian chief, but she IS the most delusional creature ever to parent a child. She is worthy of an entire post of her very own. Remind me sometime! Oh, and I'm the oldest.
Time I wake up: The alarm goes off at 6:35 a.m., but I usually use the time between then and about 8 to read blogs, talk to computer friends, answer emails and play scrabble! Then I get up in a hellacious hurry so I can get showered, dressed and have Roo-girl at school by 9. Except on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when I actually do get up and am exercising my brains out (and apparently gaining weight for my trouble) at the gym by 7 a.m.
Unnatural hair color: I am a reddish-head. I like it that way. My natural color is darker (and I USED to have natural red highlights in my hair until they went gray -- bitches!), and what led me directly to Miss Clairol was the skunk streak I had right smack dab in the front!
Vegetable I refuse to eat: Brussel sprouts. *shudder*
Worst habit: I'm inherently lazy. Oh, and I have a potty mouth.
X-rays: Had my share. Nothing unusual: Hairline fracture at 14. Chest x-rays. Mammograms. I DID, however, have a CAT scan when I miscarried in 1992 and promptly had some weird seizure in my doctor's office. Now THAT was a treat!
Yummy food I make: My brownies. You can't beat 'em.
Zodiac sign: Sagittarius.
Like this one? Take it for yourself. I'm not tagging today.
