The ABCs of Me

I saw this meme at GalleySmith, and thought it would make a good post when I don’t have anything particularly bookish or movie-ish to write about.

The Rules:
– Link to the person who tagged you
– Share your ABCs
– Tag three people at the end by linking to their blogs
– Let the three tagged people know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website
– Do not tag the same person repeatedly but try to tag different people, so there is a big network of bloggers doing this tag.

Available or single?
Married – for 15 years next March.

Best Friend?
Michelle. We get together for weekly play dates, in which our boys run around and do boyish stuff, and we talk and talk and talk. She’s leaving for a fantasy trip to Edinburgh and London in a week and a half – and she’ll be gone for four whole weeks! I’m going to go through withdrawals.

Cake or Pie?
Cake, especially if my dad bakes it.

Drink of choice?
Non-alcoholic: water or iced lattes. Alcoholic: Colorado Bulldog.

My laptop.

Purple.

Google?
Google Search and Google Reader – I use them daily.

Buying books, eating chocolate. Both of which I’ve had to greatly curtail this year. 🙁

Three younger sisters: Andrea, Debra, and Marni.

Oranges or apples?
Apples.

Spiders. Sharks. Aquariums where you walk under the ocean. Shudder.

Quote for the day?
“It was one of the great livery-stableman’s most masterly intuitions to have discovered that Americans want to get away from amusement even more quickly than they want to get to it.” – Age of Innocence, Edith Wharton – I just started reading this yesterday.

A happy family.
