Me, Alphabetically

I saw this meme over at CS’s place. She has such lovely pictures accompanying hers – she takes such beautiful pictures in general. She’s such an inspiration!

Here’s all about me from A to Z:

A is for Age: 36 years old, will be 37 in October.

B is for Beer of choice: Not really a beer drinker, but if forced I’ll go for a stout or a porter – yes, I like a drink that can double as a meal . . .

C is for Career: BWAAAAAH HA HA HA HA! Oh, wait, I guess I do have an actual career. I’m a middle manager at a national non-profit.

D is for favorite Drink: Oooh, a creamy, warm cup of Chai Tea. Smell the spices! Taste the goodness as it warms your tummy!

E is for Essential item(s) you use everyday: My glasses. I would be literally and figuratively lost without them.

F is for Favorite song at the moment: Do you mean the one that’s stuck in my head right now? “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer.

G is for favorite Game: Scrabble. Especially with a foursome. That’s a full evening’s entertainment right there . . .

H is for How about whatever favorite I choose: Favorite vacation spot – a B&B across the street from the water in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard

I is for Instruments played: Clarinet and, briefly, violin. Would love to get a piano and learn that.

J is for favorite Juice: Lemon, especially when made into lemonade! Can also be used in a number of awesome recipes. You can’t go wrong with lemon juice . . .

K is for Kids: None yet, but would like one or two.

L is for Last kiss: Peck to Mr. Random when he dropped me off at work this morning.

M is for Marriage: Will be married 9 years in September.

N is for full Name: Well that’s easy. Kath Random, a.k.a wife of Mr. Random, formerly Kath Maiden Name. What? . . . Problem?

O is for Overnight hospital stays: Not since I was born (knock wood!)

P is for Phobias: Flying. Driving long distances by myself. Eating organ meats. Eating fungi. Speaking up, unless I am really miffed. Giving birth.

Q is for Quote: “Outta my way, you bums!” – Obviously not mine, but a friend of mine is trying to make that his new catch phrase . . . This phrase is especially useful when driving.

R is for biggest Regret: I really try not to have them – everything leads to something else – but there are some people that I wish I had met sooner in my life than later.

S is for Sports: I love to go the baseball games when I can. I love to watch soccer. And while I don’t really follow many sports closely, I still like reading the sports pages and listening to some ESPN shows. It’s all about the personalities involved. I currently listen to podcasts of ESPN’s PTI, Around the Horn, and Bill Simmons everyday. Have the time the conversation really isn’t about sports, it’s more about human nature.

T is for Time you wake up: The alarm always goes off at 6:15. I am usually sitting up by 7, whether by choice or by the entreaties of the Random Cat.

U is for color Underwear: {blush} My underwear comes in all different colors. I don’t quite have matching sets yet, but I’m getting closer.

V is for Vegetable you love: Wow, that’s hard! Corn. Green beans. Peas. Broccoli. I’d say potato, but that’s more of a starch.

W is for Worst habit: I am the worst pack rat ever. It pains me to throw paper away. Same with magazines. I am the queen of the piles.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Dental, of course. Do sonograms count?

Y is for Yummy food you make: Cheesecakes! My dad loves my banana pudding. My grandma loves my tuna casserole. Brazilian fish stew, with black beans and spread over rice. Mr. Random likes anything I make.

Z is for Zodiac sign: Scorpio!

Anybody else want a go at this A to Z? It's all yours . . .

Aw, I'm blushing! But I'm glad you did this one. Your phobia list made me laugh. (Because, you know, everyone else's phobias are funny. Mine are serious.) I call stouts and porters drinkable bread. And the Brazilian fish stew - mmmm. But, I was wondering what made you change your name when Kath Maiden Name has such a delightful sound to it?

How did you find time to do that! I am retired albiet the grands are here and would never find time to do! good reading though

CS: funny thing about the Maiden Name - it is actually a lot shorter and easier to spell than the Random name. Sometimes I wish I kept it, but the Random name is pretty cool too.

mommanator: When you are procrastinating, you find time for a lot of things . . . :-)
