That Wife’s ABCs

Sometimes I just feel like doing a meme.

A. Age: 25
B. Bed size: King
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the freezer. Impossible unless the freezer is off and defrosted (especially when you have a puddle of sticky frozen apple cider spilled all over like we do currently.)
D. Dogs: We have a baby. We don’t need both.
E. Essential start to your day: My iPhone. I’m trying really hard not to wake up using tweets/emails but it’s not working very well.
F. Favorite color: I don’t have one. Maybe green. Or black.
G. Gold or silver: Silver.
H. Height: 5’2″
I. Instruments you play: I can blow into a flute and if I watched a YouTube video I could probably remember a few notes. I can play incredibly basic songs on piano. My voice is my best instrument by far.
J. Job Title: Mother/Blogger/Photographer.
K. Kids: If you don’t know about my kid, you’ve probably never read my blog.

L. Live: Chicago
M. Mom’s name: Denise
N. Nicknames: Jenna, Jen, Jenni Bobo, Honey-Bunny
O. Overnight hospital stays: I can’t remember any… All of my surgeries have been outpatient I think.
P. Pet peeve: People who refer to posts on as blogs. As in “I published a new blog today” or “I love all of your blogs”. The article I put up each day is a post on my blog. Post is to article as newspaper is to blog.
Q. Quote from a movie:

Diane: Nobody thought we’d do this. Nobody really thinks it will work do they?
Lloyd: No. But you just described every great success story.

(Say Anything)
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: Shaylene (21) Drake (deceased)
T. Time you wake up: When my baby wakes up, around 8 am.
U. Underwear: Yeah, I wear it.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Mushrooms. I try so hard but I just don’t like them.
W. What makes you run late: Well the kid doesn’t help, but I’m always running late even without him. I wait until the last minute to get ready.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Oh yeah, my back. Remember this?

Y. Yummy food you make: Pocorn. Heating up the butter in just the right way is an art.
Z. Zoo animal: Zoo animals make me sad. If I had to choose one though, it would be monkeys because they are the most fun to watch.

  1. Haha. What fun. I did one of these once…
    But for Z (Zoo)- I couldn’t help but choose (which is cheating) The Sea Otter- which is technically as an ocean animal. THEY are the most fun to watch as they chill on their backs and massage their cheeks. ;o)
    Have a good day!

  2. Your pet peeve makes me smile – I know it REALLY bugs you since you posted about it in response to one of my posts. It’s so funny how something so small can just grate on you. My big (spoken) pet peeve is when people misuse “you and I.” It’s so frequently misused I think there must be legions of English teachers out there either teaching it incorrectly or not teaching its exceptions. Argh!

  3. Great POST Jenna!!!…. (and thats totally a peeve of mine too!!!) I love learning more about you – its fun!

  4. Because I am a pedant (starts with p!) with pet peeves, your analogy for your pet peeve answer should be article is to newspaper as post is to blog.

    Jenna Reply:

    Oh indeed, you are right. Phooey! Well I find that when people point out my mistakes like this I’m much less likely to make them again. :)

  5. With the whole blog/post thing – I agree, but I also think that a “post” could be called a “blog post” as in… you are posting to your blog. So I can see where some one might get confused. If the action of posting is called “blogging” one might be posting a blog? It’s late. I probably don’t make any sense. lol.

  6. “Say Anything” is my second favorite movie of all time. It is only beaten by another John Cusack movie, “High Fidelity”, and that’s just been as I’ve gotten older. Love love LOVE that quote. :)
