My Cherry has been Popped

I have found the answer to my babysitting dilemma: I pawned them off on Grandma! Why did I not think of this earlier? She lives just down the road, and she is now, my bestest, coolest relative in the world. Sorry mom, the mother-in-law won this round!

It is eerily quiet now. Hubs is off at work, the kids are being stuffed full of sugar and the damn puppy is finally asleep. I am almost lost, not having to wipe up puddles. Almost. So now, instead of hiding in the pantry, I am sitting here, with my wine and trying to relax by surfing the ol' net. Imagine my delight and surprise to find I have been tagged by the fabulous, irresistible Kristen. My very first meme. She has popped my cherry, so to speak. So without any further ado, and before Grandma brings the tribe back, here it goes:

Accent - None, eh. We Canadjuns speak just like you Americans, dontcha know, eh?

Booze of choice - Any that is in my cup. Or in my pantry. I am not picky.

Chore I hate - Mopping the floor. Really, what is the point? It is not like we eat off it or anything.

Dog or Cat - A week ago I would have said dogs. Tonight, I am loving my purring pussy all the way. (My cat dear internet. Naughty people!)

Essential electronics - Computer and wash machine. Have you ever tried washing eight loads of laundry by hand? Do I look like Laura off of Little House on the Prairie?

Favorite perfume(s)/cologne(s) - Perfume makes my nose itch. Doesn't it all smell like soap anyways?

Gold or Silver? - White gold or silver. But I will take either if you want to give me some.

Hometown - Edmonton, Ab

Insomnia? - Every night since Oct. 21. 2005

Job Title - Indentured servant to an unappreciative flock.

Kids? - Living or dead? Haven't figured out correct response to that question just yet. How 'bout 2 who breathe and one who flies with the angels.

Living Arrangement - Not big enough for all my hubby's nieces and nephews. But a pretty house, nonetheless.

Most admired trait - Apparently I am personable. Translation: I make others uncomfortable with my biting wit and odd sense of humor.

Number of Sexual Partners - Not enough to make any history.

Overnight Hospital Stays - A million nights in hospital to watch over my Bug. But none because of me.

Phobia - Dragon flies. Nature's helicopters who like to buzz in your face. They dive bomb me any chance they have. Scary.

Quote - "Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much." Oscar Wilde

Religion - God and I are currently on the outs.

Siblings - One brother, who is a year older. One sister, who is three years younger.

Time I wake up - About fifteen minutes before the school bus comes rumbling down the road. Every morning is a mad dash to get dressed, make breaky, pack lunches and style kiddy's hair. And I think I could squeeze it into ten if I tried really hard.

Unusual talent/skill - I can put my feet behind my head. The real reason my husband married me.

Vegetable I refuse to eat - Beets. They taste like dirt and they are purple. Gross in so many ways.

Worst habit - Chewing the insides of my cheeks until they bleed. I tried chewing gum, but I guess I am a bit of a vampire.

X-rays - Teeth. Knees. Facial bones. (A future post on why we don't walk behind horsies.)

Yummy foods I make - Kraft Macaroni and cheese. I am especially proud of the consistency of the cheese.

Zodiac sign - Libra. Which means I always try to be the mediator. Which means I am always being told where to go and how to get there!

Well dear internet, that was fun! Whoo hoo! I'm not a virgin anymore. I am pouring myself more wine. I still have an hour before the terror squad comes back. Thanks Kristen, for thinking of me!

I tag Jellyhead, Mom-101, and Thumper.

Nothing could be better than a domestic diva that can make excellent Kraft Macaroni and cheese. And, I agree with you on the floor mopping tning... heck I just trek over it in my dirty shoes anyway.

Oh, and while i lurve you for tagging me, I must confess I'm not going to be able to get to it. Too much last minute work/packing/seeing my baby/cool mom picks business before I head out of town monday morning. But thanks for thinking of me.

And now you know I hate beets, so that's something.

Apparently, it's bad to tag people (careful some get nasty and mad). I had my "cherry" broken not too long ago too.
I just figured out ... psst... you have two blogs. I've read both before.
Here from Michele's tonight.

Hi T. Michele sent me to see you.

I'd not seen this meme before and I certainly can understand why your husband would value your special talent. Wow! LOL

I'm with you on the insomnia. It's nasty not being able to sleep when you want. My girlfriend is just the other way. She can sleep anywhere, anytime. Be careful of those horses, T, as you know--they can be dangerous!

A future post on why we don't walk behind horsies. Oy! I can imagine. That makes me cringe. But it also makes me really like you. Because if I would have grown up on a farm with a horse, I would have the same story.
