Word Up - It's Time to Get Wordy!

Word of the Day
I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences. Gertrude Stein

17 September 2008


My friend Chel tagged me. (Heeyyyyy girl! Thanks for giving me something to write about!)

Attached or Single? So very attached. Which I prefer to tryin' to get a man.

Best Friend? My Stretch and my sister. And I also have some pretty awesome bosom buddies. I'm a lucky girl. I have great friends.

Cake or Pie? Yes. I'm down wit' it.

Day of Choice? Saturdays, Christmas Eve, Christmas day and my birthday (month).

Essential Item? Toiletries. You may notice a pattern as you read on... I have difficulty narrowing things down into something smaller than categories. Single items are just too limiting and make me rather nervous.

Flavour of Ice Cream? Honey Bun. Whuttup yo.

(I like seeing flavor and color spelled with u's.)(Why am I not BRITISH?!)

Gummy Bears or Worms? How about Sour Patch Kids. Although I don't discriminate against the bears and the worms. They taste the same to me. How could one choose between identical brightly colored gelatin food colored chemicals?

Hometown? There are two main ones, but others that are speckled in between. The two primary ones are little towns called Port Barre (Port Barry) and Franklin.

But not Mamou. I mean, I did live in Mamou for a short stint, but I'm not from there. Regardless of what other people may have told you.

Indulgences? My hair stylist. Which I soon have to downgrade because she keeps graduating to the next level stylist making her above our pay grade.

But I'm definitely against abortion. That's not above my pay grade.

January or July? July. Any month I can wear flip flops will trump other months where I cannot. Or should not (because of pain-inducing cold)(but sometimes do anyway). Because I like to think I'm a renegade.

Kids? Three o' dem bad boys. (And of course by "boys" I mean "kids". Only 2 of them are boys.) Cute things, too. And no, we're not having anymore.

I hope.

Last Movie I saw in a Theater? Hmm, gotta think... no clue. I'll come back to this one.
Okay, I'm back. ...still nothin'. Why can't I remember this??

Middle Name? Marie. Exotic, I know.

Number of Siblings? Three. 2 brothers, 1 twin sister.

Oranges or Apples? Yeah, sure.

Phobia or Fear? Fear. Spiders, heights, creating bad stories for my little people, tanning beds...

Quote? I am Word Girl. How could I possible narrow this down to one single quote. So unfair. I'm picking two. (Because I'm a renegade.)

I'm always thinking one step ahead....like a carpenter...that builds stairs.

You can't get arrested for being AWESOME!

Reason to Smile? Those quotes. :)

Season? Spring and Fall! The fashion is cracka-lackin'!

Tag five more: I'm not doing this part. I'm not comfortable with the whole tagging thing (although I don't mind being tagged) - so if you feel so inclined and you wanna do this, then tag. You're it. Do yo' thang.

Unknown Fact About Me
? To encourage me to never eat again, all you'd have to set in front of me are these two things:
1. a jar of pickled pig's feet in that pink juice
2. a big, nasty cow tongue wrapped up, ready to buy. Somebody is gonna EAT that?!
Dis. GUST!

Vegeterian or Oppressor of Animals? How come a vegetarian isn't called an oppressor of vegetation? (This is what Chel said and I'm leaving it because I like it so much.)

Worst Habit? Self-indulgence that looks like procrastination. I don't like doing something until the mood strikes me. When it does hit, I honor it. But until it does, I sort of wait around for it, doing not much of anything until it feels juuust right. There are two categories of people - cleanies and messies. I am a messie. Because of this habit.

Xrays or Ultrasounds? They're both useful. I don't want either though. I like having all of my organs and bones in tact so I'll pass on the x-ray. And I'm good with having only 3 kids, so I'll go ahead and pass on that ultrasound as well. Thanks though.

Your favourite Food? There is no way I can answer this. It's WAY too broad. Now, if we broke it down into something very specific, like favorite (favourite) cookie or favorite pasta dish, or favorite chocolate... then I could answer but favorite food is just impossible. It cannot be done.
But my favorite cookie: my chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookies.
Favorite pasta dish: crabmeat fettuccine.
Favorite chocolate: Hershey's Reserve Dark with cacao nibs. But I'm not sure if it's strictly about the taste of the luscious chocolate with it's crunchy love nibs. It may be in part because I like to say cacao.

Zodiac? I think astrology is interesting in this way: you meet a group of people who were born at the same time, under a certain sign, and they have very similar personality traits. I think that's very interesting. But horoscope? That's a bunch o' bunk. It's what we call 'pas bon'. No good.

And that there is my A-Z.
Happy Wednesday.
Which reminds me, it's Business Time.
(**make sure children or mother's that might be offended are not within earshot**)

Favourite chocolate: HILARIOUS!!!
