ABC's of Me

The weekend is over, so why not a meme?  Thanks to Scott for this gem, through the glory of Facebook.  The instructions below are for Facebook users.  Bloggers may do this however they wish. 
And Facebookers, you don’t HAVE to do it if I tagged you… but if you’d like to, please tag me and let me know!
You’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with the ABC’s of YOU. At the end, choose 26 people to be tagged. You have to tag me so really you just need 25 more people. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you – but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.
(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your ABC’s of Me, tag 26 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

A – Age: 38 …. that still hurts.

B – Bed size: Full.

C – Chore you hate: laundry.

D – Dogs’ name: No dogs, cats.  Pippin and Screech. 

E – Essential start your day item: Water.

F – Favorite color: Green.

G – Gold or Silver: Silver.

H – Height: 6’1″

I – Instruments you play(ed): Organ (hush!) and voice.

J – Job title: Desktop Publisher.  But I prefer Graphic Designer.  Sounds sexier.

K – Kid(s): Just the furry ones.

L – Living arrangements: You mean you haven’t been reading my blog and/or listening to my whining about my moving situation?  Get on the ball already! 🙂

M – Mom’s name: Jill.  Used to be spelled “Gille” but she changed the spelling when she turned 18.

N- Nicknames: Ricko, Champ (my Dad’s nickname), Ricker, Ricardo, Ricky (used to be my main name until 6th grade).

O – Overnight hospital stay other than birth: I had some kind of weird stomach crampy problem in around 7th grade, then I had my tonsils removed and upper palate reconstructed in 2003, then my horrid kidney stone episode of 2007.

P – Pet Peeve: Moronic drivers.  And in a city like Chicago, there are TONS of them.

Q – Quote from a movie: “Meat loaf, meat loaf, double-beet loaf.  I HATE MEAT LOAF!” -A Christmas Story.

R – Right or left handed: Right.

S – Siblings: One younger sister- Beth.

T – Time you wake up: After about 3 snooze button hits.

U- Underwear: Almost always briefs.

V – Vegetable you dislike: Mushrooms, olives.

W – Ways you run late: There are too many to even mention.  I wake up and I’m late. It’s just how I roll.

X – X-rays you’ve had: There aren’t enough words in the English language to descirbe all the X-Rays, CT Scans, MRIs, Bone Scans and everything in between I’ve had.  

Y – Yummy food you make: I will gladly admit that I am a pretty good cook, but I come by it honestly– Mom, Dad, Nana… they were all great cooks.  I make my own meatballs, homemade pasta (sometimes) and other Italian goodies pretty darn well.  But, despite my favorite movie quote, I do make a mean meat loaf as well… and I LOVE meat loaf!

Z – Zoo favorite: Panda bears.
