ABC Stuff

How appropriate for Jeanette to have tagged me today. Why? I'll tell you...

#1 - I was pondering on why we (in the prestigious field of blogging) call these things "memes" - I just don't understand the term...

#2 - Just this morning I had the thought that I should make an ABC book for our children about the places they have lived or things they have loved...

So...with that lovely introduction, here are the ABC's of me. (Cue Jackson 5's ABC - see YouTube video below)

A - Attached or single: Attached...very, very attached.

B - Best Friend: The person to whom I'm so attached.

C - Cake or Pie: I must say...cake, cake and cake...unless it's an ice cream pie.

D - Day of Choice: Saturday. Why? Because it is usually a day when we can have some fun as a family. My husband is usually home and I get to vary from the normal routine!

E - Essential Item: At the moment...feminine hygiene products. Other days...it's gotta be my bed. :)

F - Favorite Color: Green...I don't know why...it's not the color that looks best on me or anything, but I have just always liked green.

G - Gummi Bears of Worms: Da Bears...make them Haribo!

H - Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah - yes Salt Lake, not Draper, not Magna, not Murray, not Holiday...good old Salt Lake - during my growing up years we lived 3 minutes from downtown.

I - Indulgence: Ice cream, a good book, and sitting outside enjoying the sun - I will indulge in these all separately, but if it just so happens that they all come together...all the better!

J - January or July: This is tough...I LOVE summer, but this year we moved to Arizona (Phoenix area - East Valley) and to be honest, July is really not so much fun here because you can't go outside. On the other hand, January here is quite lovely! So...for the two years we will be living here, I'll go with January...but when we move...I'll be back to lovin' July!!!

K - Kids: What about them? - Yep...I have two. A girl (Big Sis) who is 4, turning 5 in May, and a boy (Baby Boy) who is 1, turning 2 in June.

L - Life is incomplete without: "if" - get it? Seriously...for me, life would be incomplete without the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

M - Marriage Date: August 15

N - Number of Siblings: 5 - I have two brothers and three sisters. I also have 6 sisters-in-law and 7 brothers-in-law...love them all!!

O - Oranges or Apples: It's sad to admit this, since I currently have a beautiful Orange tree in my backyard, but I prefer apples...just not Red Delicious...too mush and grainy...Love, love, Pink Ladies!!!

P - Phobias or Fears: I have way too many to list here!!! But here is a good one for ya...I do not like small spaces (yes, claustrophobia). I don't like it when I can't see past things too (like when I am on a small highway and can't see past the semi in front of me). Imagine how much fun I had last year when my husband and I were stuck inside a small elevator for about an hour...good times...I'll blog about this sometime.

Q - Quote: Again...way too many to list here, but my sister just sent a wonderful quote my way..."Believe in yourself. Believe in your capacity to do great and good things. Believe that no mountain is so high that you cannot climb it. Believe that no storm is so great that you cannot weather it. You are not destined to be a scrub. You are a child of God, of infinite capacity." - President Gordon B. Hinckley

R - Reason to Smile: Blowing on baby bellies, reading bedtime stories, bear hugs, ticklish feet, Eskimo kisses.

S - Season: Spring, followed closely by Summer.

T - Tag: Hmm...Richelle and anybody else who feels so inclined.

U- Unknown Fact About Me: Now that you know my dislike of elevators, what could be unknown?

V - Veggies or Fruit: If you are asking which I'd rather snack on, hello...fruit!

W - Worst Habit: Staying up late

X - X-Rays or Ultrasounds: This is puzzling...which have I had more of, which do I prefer? I have only had to have three x-rays to check for broken bones, but have had countless dental x-rays. I have had more ultrasounds than I can count for many reasons...including to peek in at my babies.

Y - Your Favorite Food: Seriously? OK...here's something you may not know about me I LOVE FOOD! It would be easier to say what is not my favorite and that is Chinese food, escargot, frog legs and any exotic weird thing that is made from animals that normal Western Society does not usually categorize as edible.

Z - Zodiac: Virgo is my sign and no, I don't believe in that hocus pocus...

I like this description from Wikipedia:
"A meme consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. Memes propagate themselves and can move through a "culture" in a manner similar to the behavior of a virus."

I had to look it up once because I had no idea what it meant.

I'll be happy to pass this virus! :)

Thank you Richelle...I guess I was a little bit off in what I was thinking!

Toooooo fun! And don't ask me about the time on my mission when our elevator got stuck. And when it it finally started working again, we got back in, only to get stuck AGAIN.....
