The ABC's of Lucky

A - Attached or Single: attached to my Nordic prince who’s 5 years younger than me but WAY smarter, taller and musically inclined. B - Best Friend: blanket answer, My Lisa. We’ve been friends for over 10 years. However, I have many “besties” who know more about me than anyone should and I trust them with that LOL (Cathy, Tiffany, Christine, Ann, etc.). C - Cake or Pie: cheesecake, the Chocolate Dream from Carrabba’s (but it MUST be shared unless you’re a freak) or made-from-scratch (shout out to Azucar who’s made the most amazing from-scratch cakes I’ve ever tasted). D - Drink of Choice: 1.5% milk (my dad used to say I drank so much I should be IV’d to a cow), pink lemonade, Clementine Izze straight from the bottle (sorry about my residual licking of the rim, just bugs me to leave a little behind). E - Essential Items: cell phone, camera/computer, A/C and my new watch from Denmark with 2 faces (one set to Mountain and the other to Pacific). F - Favorite Color: red and pink to look at (not together, separately), chocolate to wear and orange as an accessory (as in my faux leather handbag and Harley). G - Gummi Bears or Worms: bears, but not all colors (green & yellow taste dumb). H - Hometown: 10-17yrs old Clovis, NM… 17-early 20’s Spokane, WA… mid-20’s-31 Seattle, WA. I – Indulgence(s): jewelry, original artwork, gourmet food, reality TV (Miami Ink and Simmons Family Jewels) and girls night out. J - January or July: January… love the cozy feel of a sweater or sweatshirt and hot drinks (Wassail, flavored herbal teas and hot cocoa with real cream) with friends and family (not a fan of heat because you can only get SO naked). K - Kids: just 2… Jack (named after my grandpa who didn’t have biological kids of his own) and Piper (who’s middle name is a shout-out to My Lisa). L - Life is incomplete without: ethics, good food with good friends, laughter and faith (in many things, not just religious). M - Marriage Date: in March of 98 because it’s in the middle of any holidays so we wouldn’t have to share (plus it wasn’t the height of wedding/vacation season and rates are lower; I’m pretty practical that way). N - Number of Siblings: 1 brother, Jason (was going to be Matthew), who’s 7yrs younger, single, treats women with respect and is a talented welder by trade. O - Oranges or Apples: oranges, but don’t like the seeds and prefer the taste of tangerines, and the smell of them over lemons. P - Phobias/Fears: have nightmares about snakes and my children being badly hurt (especially being hit by a car as I was when I was 4). Q - Favorite Quote: You are unique; just like everyone else. R – Restaurants (I changed this one): Carrabba’s in Orem, JaK’s Grill in Issaquah, Dixie’s BBQ in Bellevue, Thai Village in American Fork and Red Robin for their fries. S - Season: anything but summer because it’s so hot and I don’t do well in hot. I remember one year Lisa and I went to Utah in the summer and it was so hot she swore it was a good thing she wasn’t a crayon. T- Tag Three: whoever hasn’t done one of these ever or lately. U - Unknown Fact About Me: lived with cats all my life until I moved to Vancouver, WA as an adult and became allergic (even to my family cats whom I grew up with sleeping on my neck and rubbing my face as I got ready in the morning). V - Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals: I believe in the ethical treatment of animals (don’t like the idea of wearing fur as an accessory) but eat meat and desire dairy products throughout the day (cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, milk). W - Worst Habit: forgetting to call people back after I’ve listened to then deleted their voice mails intending to call back… saving even the tiniest amount of leftovers just to end up tossing them in the garbage. X - X-rays or Ultrasounds: x-rays because ultrasounds kinda creep me out. Y - Your Favorite Foods: well-made, thin-crust pizza with fresh ingredients, Cinnabon with cooold milk (once or twice a year and usually with My Lisa), white sauce, Big Salad, a nice med-rare filet, bleu cheese burger at Mon Amie Gabi in Vegas, anything that Cathy makes, CW’s blueberry homemade ice cream, PayDay candy bar, anything with cream cheese and Sticky Chicken (Hawaiian recipe that’s called by many names). Z- Zodiac: Gemini.

Getting hit by a car? Uhhmmm, I think it was more of "I got rolled over by a car becuase I WAS LAYING ON A SPEEDBUMP in the middle of the road".

My favorite story of yours and I heard it the first night we met.

I could not find you anywhere Sat night to say goodbye. When do you leave for good? Lunch before maybe???

Yes, I am going to try out the watch thing. Beauty of it is that it's more like a bracelet with bling!

Peef...now that you mention it I think I DO remember. I lived by the mall and then on D street near downtown.

Sue...why you gotta be sassy? I was FOUR YEARS OLD when that happened so I think I'm allowed to lay on a speedbump hahaha.

I was pretty clever with ducking out so nobody could make me cry saying goodbye. It's not goodbye... it's cya later ;o) And I wish I could do lunch but I'm about to go postal trying to pack before this Friday --- eek!

Haha ... so funny. I just read that you lived in Clovis from 10-17. Now I gotta' know what the years were. I lived in Clovis from 1978-79. Isn't that funny?

Let's see, Bruce... that would've made me in Clovis 1981-1988 ish.
