The ABCs of Me

I've seen this around the blogging world lately and since my blog has been so quiet, decided I'd play.

A.  Age - 51
B.  Bed size is a king
C. Chore I dislike – cleaning toilets
D.  Dogs – adore them; but then, I love most animals
E.  Essential start of your day – a nice big glass of iced tea, even when there is snow on the ground
F.  Favorite color – don’t really have one, but I really dislike orange
G. Gold or silver?  Silver
H.  Height – 5’3 1/2
I. Instruments you play or played  - I played the violin as a child.  Can still remember my sadistic violin teacher.
J.  Job title – volunteer extraordinaire? 
K. Kids – 2 college-aged kids
L.  Live – rural Virginia
M. Moms name – Margaret
N.  Nicknames – none
O . Overnight hospital stay – other than when I was born?  Had my tonsils out, had to stay overnight for observation after a head injury (caused by my brother), and when I had my 2 children
P.  Pet peeve – unfortunately, lots of them.  Typos in books; people who cannot understand the difference between your and you’re or their, they’re, and there; people who leave shopping carts in the middle of parking lots…
Q. Quote from a movie – “Vote for Pedro”
R.  Righty or lefty – Lefty; I’ve been told I’m sinister
S. Siblings – younger brother and sister
T.  Time you wake up? 6:30-7:00 a.m.
U.  Underwear - MYOB
V.  Vegetables you don’t like?  Beets and radishes
W.  What makes you run late? Other people.  I’m obsessive about being on time - sometimes it's not very healthy.
X.  X-rays have you had any? Dental, back when I had whiplash, and the above-mentioned head injury caused by my brother (do you think I’m holding a grudge too long?)
Y.  Yummy food you make – chocolate chip cookies baked with my daughter
Z.  Zoo animal favorite? Hard to choose – I love them all!

"Volunteer extraordinaire" - I like that! A friend recently suggested "activist" for me when I blogged about not knowing what to say when people ask what I *do*. Perhaps we can combine the two. :)
