ABC's of ME

Sunday, August 15, 2010

BEVY11951 posted her version of this after finding it on someone else's Spark Page. She stated that she thought this would be a fun way to get to know more about each other and I did enjoy reading hers. In her blog, she suggested that we keep this going. Just use "copy and paste".

Please write your version and then send a request to 5 of your Spark Friends, including yourself, to do the same. If you are unable to complete this request within 24 hours, you will forever receive only 2 points on the "Spark Wheel of Fortune".

Okay, that 2nd paragraph is just my warped sense of humor at 2:43A.M. Of course, it's warped no matter what time of day it is. I just thought that my request to keep it going was sounding a bit like one of those "chain letter e-mails" that you probably love as much as I do. Enough already - "Here's Janie"...

A = Age: 61
B = Bed size: Queen
C = Chore you hate: Cleaning out my file cabinets
D = Dogs name: Katie Noonan (Yorkshire Terrier)
E = Essential start of your day item: Taking Katie outside.
F = Favorite color: Green ( I know that you are reeling from that shocking disclosure)
G = Gold or Silver: Silver if we're talking jewelry, silver if we're talking hair color
H = Height: 5'6" (actually I borrowed Bev's height on this one) I'm barely 5 feet tall.
I = Instruments you play: Learning bodhran, ukelele, harmonica, & mandolin
J = Job title: "Jane of All Trades, Master of None" (honestly Registered Nurse & L.M.F.T.)
K = Kid(s): 2 daughters - Aged 34 & 31 and 1 son aged 27
L = Living arrangements: Now that the kids are on their own, it's just "Katie Noonan" and me
M = Mom's name is: Catherine Margaret Noonan McIntosh (a.k.a. Peg or Peggy) deceased
N = Nickname(s): Mac, Sinead, "Sparkle Plenty", Janie, "Nurse Jane", "Therapist Jane"
O = Overnight hospital stay other than birth: a few too many prior to becoming a nurse, now I beg to go home
P = Pet Peeve: never ending voice menus when you call a company, etc. Press 1 to speak with a live person, Press 2 to speak with a dead person, Press 3 etc. etc.
Q= Quote from a movie: "A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they're not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt, even! Play as well as you can. Go team! GO! Give me a "L"! Give me an "I"! Give me a "V"! Give me a "E"! LIVE!... Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room." Ruth Gordon in "Harold and Maude"
R = Right or left handed: Right
S = Siblings: 2 brothers (1deceased), 1 sister (deceased)
T = Time you wake up: I don't sleep at all 2-3 x's/week, if I do sleep usually wake up at 6:30AM
U = First word that comes to mind for "U": Undertaker (well they do say that the Irish have a preoccupation with death)
V = Vegetable you dislike: don't think that I've met one that I haven't liked
W = Ways you run late: I'm usually early or on time
X = Xrays: Too many to remember
Y = Yummy food you make: Strawberry Pretzel Salad (according to my kids who fight over it)
Z = Zoo favorite: Elephants (I've been thinking that I resemble there largess) but the monkeys are full of "boogie" and I love that

That's mine and it would be a fun way to get to know each other so keep it flowing.....

    Just read your ABC's and you really cheer me - I absolutely love your humor. Want to hear something funny? I just found out recently that my heritage (on my father's side) is half Irish and half French Canadian. His grandfather came over to England from Dublin when he was a young man. I grew up thinking I was only English because that is where my grandparents originated, but my 89 year old dad just told me that was not the case. I only learned about this because my daughter Becky, recently moved to "Southie", the Irish section of Boston. My dad thought he'd tell of our Dublin origins at this time. What a hoot! It's not a lot, but I have some roots in this get culture. So "Erin Go Bragh" my friend!

    This is great! I may borrow if for use with my women's group-we can all stand to learn a little bit more about each other.

    Fun! I love the Harold and Maude quote. I need to see that movie again.

    Hope you're getting some more sleep soon, I know how hard it is.

    Thanks for stopping by my blogs. Nice to hear from you again!

    Take care Jane!
