Let's Talk About Me

I've been tagged for a meme by the incomparable Tonggu Momma who is starting to get the nest ready for the arrival of their second daughter. Who they have been waiting for over 50 months now.

I kid you not. The woman has learned her some patience over the past four years.
TM is one of my biggest commenters and one of my favorite imaginary friends so I feel it is only fair I do her meme. That and it has actually been nice out so I have no time to think of something creative, I am too busy enjoying the warmth.

1. What is your biggest pet peeve? People who make me late. I HATE being late with every FIBRE of my being. If someone else is late, that's fine but if they make me late, WATCH OUT. I will definitely think mean thoughts about them. (I'm 5' 2 " and completely out of shape. Mean thoughts are about all I can do.)

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you and why? I quite like where we live right now. The mountains are close, my family is close and Way Cooler is working a job he LOVES. This seems quite ideal to me. Plus, being here means that I am not moving. I've done that a lot. It's highly over-rated. So here is good.

3. Have you ever been searched by the cops? No. I'm law-abiding to a fault. Mainly out of fear. I've only even been pulled over once and that almost made me puke I was so scared. We've gotten to know a lot of police officers over the years and so my fear has lessened, but I am still rather afraid of any police type encounter.

4. What is the one thing on your mind now? I am currently psyching myself up to put two slightly punchy little boys to bed by myself. Usually this is no big deal but tonight I am facing a lot of exhaustion after a VERY busy week and I must confess I have contemplated letting them stay up watching TV until they just fall asleep on the floor. So, whose gonna nominate me for mother of the year? Anyone? Anyone?

5. Favorite song right now? Don't have one. Least favorite song? ANYTHING sung by a cucumber and tomato.

6. What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could draw or paint or play an instrument or sing or understand math or dance or play sports with any measure of skill. Any of those would be fine. All would be FANTASTIC. So would owning a unicorn. And the latter is going to happen a lot faster than the former.

7. Favorite Drink? coke zero. But please don't tell anyone, I really do not need any more snide comments about what artificial sweeteners are doing to my brain.

8. In one word, how would you describe yourself? Oh heavens. I have a BLOG. Which means I am fairly self-occupied and verbose. I can barely describe myself in one well-written essay, let alone a word.

But enough about me, what one word would YOU use to describe me?

I'm laughing about the coke zero! There are many worse things in the world than coke zero - like if you said your favourite drink was tequila or something.

My one (and a bit) word for you ... is quirkily entertaining!

I know that compared to you I am always the late one (3 minutes late) but my biggest pet peeve with meetings is the ones that start late and then the leader has the gall to be upset that you've booked another meeting 10 minutes after the mtg is committed to ending at. REALLY? You start it late... you end it on time. That's the way the meeting cookie crumbles.

Sorry... this isn't my blog!

SPUNKY. Enough said. (Except also that you make me laugh. Out loud. Which not many people can do. Which means I adore you.)

Yea. I think I suffer from "liking where I live b/c I can't face the thought of moving" syndrome. Here's to INERTIA.
