ABCs of Me

Yesterday I tagged Jonathan in a “First Post” tag. His first blog post was… wait for this… a tag, in which he tagged me back! Ha! Talk about sneaky! Things like that are why he gets this result in the “One word that describes you” FB game:


I kid. Not about him being… well, what that sign says (It’s a sad thing to think that your twin is evil, though) but about the tags. I love tags.  So, on we go!

ABC’s of Me

A – Age: See, age of Aquarius is kind of outdated. It’s now the Age of the Understatement. Just ask the Last Shadow Puppets.
B – Bed size: Why? Are you planning to stay over? You’d be disappointed. I’d make you sleep on the couch with the cats. One night with these cats and you’d never want to come back.
C – Chore you hate: Cleaning. All of it. Though I can actually kind of stand dusting, and I’ve gotten to where I can deal with washing dishes. I’d rather just get a maid, though.
D – Dog’s names: Fido. He’s named after a zombie. The zombie is named after a dog. It’s a good movie. You should check it out. 
E – Essential start your day item(s). The dog whining to go out. Without that I might never get up. Also eye drops or sometimes my eyes will literally not open.
F – Favorite color: Why do we always have to have a favorite? Why do we have to tell the colors that one is better than the other? All the little colors are equal in my eyes. except red. Red might be a little cooler, but don’t tell green. Green gets jealous easy.
G – Gold or Silver, or both: Silver. It looks great with green. (See, green, we love you.)
H – Height: Heights are very high. I don’t mind them, so long as they’re up there and I’m down here. Where it’s safe.
I – Instruments you play(ed):  I can play a snare drum as long as you don’t need rolls. Tympani drums are fun – even with the rolls – base drums, triangle, cymbals, maracas…I’d love to play the taiko drums…
J – Job title: Emperor of the Universe. It looks really impressive on business cards.
K – Kid(s): I have a pair of Goddaughters, does that count? It makes me the Godmother. That’s kind of like the Godfather, except I’m meaner – I mean, nicer. Yeah. Nicer.
L – Living arrangements: They’re not really arranged very well. Especially right now. Luckily it means I don’t have to do as much cleaning because I get to ignore all but four rooms.
M – Mom’s name: Old Woman seems to fit her pretty good.
N – Nicknames you have or had: Jo. That’s it. Though some people might say there are other nicknames, they would be lying. Jo is it.
O – Overnight hospital stay other than birth: I was there overnight when I was a baby because my immunizations made me sick.  I don’t love any of my family enough to stay with them overnight. I’d miss party time if I did.
P – Pet peeve: I have a really long list. I found an old blog post that had like 25 listed, and it doesn’t cover everything. It just shows how annoying the world is.
Q – Quote from a movie: “What… is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?”
R – Right or left-handed: There’s more of the segregation! First colors, and now hands? That’s a great idea. Let’s have the right and left hand in competition, then they’ll never work together and we’ll never get anything done.
S – Siblings: I have a younger brother. I’ve been trying – unsuccessfully – to train him for 35 years. I also have an evil twin who has different parents, a completely different birthday, and is older than me…
T – Time I wake up: When the dog whines to go out. I thought I covered that already?
U- Underwear: Is very important. I think the freedom to not wear underwear is undermining our entire society. We used to be moral and upright, and look how much underwear people wore back then?
V – Vegetable you dislike: Broccoli. Cauliflower. Asparagus. Beans. Wait. Are they a vegetable? I think they go on the protein tier of the food pyramid…
W – Ways you run late: I don’t really run. I usually mosey late. I didn’t get this potato-like figure by running.
X – X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, lungs, ankle…I think that’s about it.
Y – Yummy food you make: Anything I cook is yummy. Except that rice dish I made years ago. With the squash and carrots in it. It looked good in the picture, but the recipe did not deliver.
Z- Zoo/favorite animal: Now we’re trying to pit the animals against themselves?? Good grief! What is with all this conflict? This should be called the Conflicts of You tag!
As to tagging people, I am going to be sneaky and say that anyone who reads this can be tagged if they want to be. Or I could tag Jonathan again. It might be fun to see him do an updated version of this (his post was from 2010). Yeah. I think I will.

I tag Jonathan! No tags back!


Have an ABC kinda day!

Jo 🙂


(PS – they have redone wordpress again and I don’t like it!)
