Alphabet Meme: An UnOriginal Idea

Stolen from the Usual Suspects

Accent: I have an annoying habit of mimicing accents wherever I am. I lived in many different places as a child. You blend in fast if you talk like your peer group. I still do it. I have zero accent at home. Bor-Ing Bland NoWhere American.
Booze: No booze.
Chore I Hate: Vacuuming all the stairs in this house.
Dog or Cat: Neither. We cohabit with a beautiful, sweet Flemish Giant Rabbit.
Essential Electronics: Laptop.
Favorite Perfume: 'Coco' Chanel
Gold or Silver: Platinum. Looks like stainless steel.
Hometown: Nirvanaville, Colorado
Insomnia: Never.
Job Title: Hunter and Gatherer.
Kids: Two.
Living arrangements: Too much house, not enough time & money.
Most admirable traits: 'Brilliant and hilarious conversationalist, with a working knowledge of almost everything except home theatres'. Couldn't say it better than Joke, but I can't run our home theatre, so I can't claim knowledge about that. Or string theory.
Number of sexual partners: More than a few, less than many.
Overnight hospital stays: Let's see; tonsils, parotid gland removal, myomectomy, thyroid removal, 2 for Morton's Neuromas, I know I'm forgetting something.
Phobias: Vertigo. Just like the Hitchcock movie.
Quote: 'Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.' Buckaroo Bonzai
Religion: None.
Siblings: Two lovely. well adjusted sisters.
Time I wake up: Before 7, no matter what.
Unusual talent or skill: Giving speeches with no notes, no preparation.
Vegetables I love: Most. But ix-nay on okra, rutabega, lima beans. Overcooked anything.
Worst habit: Impatience.
X-rays: Zillions. I probably glow. Dental, mammograms, lungs, bones, now I'm worried.
Yummy foods I make: Baked goods. Italian. Mexican. French. I went to chef school, dammit!
Zodiac sign: Libra. I may be fair, but I can be mean about it.

I have the same problem with the accent. I have no idea where it comes from, but when people speak in English accents around me, I tend to do the same. Or South African. Go figue.

Love platinum too! As for overnight stays, didn't you have the kids in hospitals?! :)

And impatient...YEP! And you're a chef to top it all off? Expect to see you at my house next Friday to cook a full course meal!

Star sign. Virgo. Too nitpicky for words!

my float: I 'gave birth' to my children at international airports; they were adopted as infants and flown to us. So my 'labors and deliveries' were agonizing waits, but otherwise painless.

My float said...

Ah. The beauty of children is that they come to us in many ways. How lucky we all are...
