A Age -- Old enough not to feel compelled to answer this one.
B Bed size -- Double, right now. Thinking of expanding to Queen soon. M does a lot of rolling around at night. Seems to be performing Pilates in his sleep.
C Chore you hate -- I hate all housework. I'm thinking of having bumper stickers made with that slogan.
D Dogs -- Don't have a dog at present. Haven't had a dog since I was a teenager. The hubby is a cat person, so a dog in our future is pretty unlikely. But if I could have one, it would probably be some sort of Fox Terrier.
E Essential start to your day -- Coffee. Although lately I've switched to decaf.
F Favorite color -- I don't know if I really have a favorite - I like different colors at different times, and in different situations. But I guess I'm most attracted to shades of green or yellow. And I really don't like orange. Except on oranges and the UT Tower after a winning game. (Hook 'em, Horns!)
G Gold or silver -- Gold. It doesn't require polishing.
H Height -- I've been 5'4" since I was twelve years old. The last time I measured myself (last year sometime?), I was still 5'4". But I expect to start shrinking anytime now!
I Instrument you play -- Never learned to play any instruments (except the air guitar, of course). That's one of my greatest regrets.
J Job title -- Wife. Sidekick. Retiree. Old broad.
K Kids -- None.
L Live -- Virginia.
M My mom's name -- Velma. And she lived next door to another Velma. In Texas, this was not at all unusual.
N Nickname -- Don't really have one. But as a child, I was called Joanie, and my family still call me that sometimes.
O Overnight hospital stay -- Tonsillectomy when I was six. Hysterectomy and gall bladder surgery many years later.
P Pet Peeve -- Wow, don't get me started!
Q Quote from a movie -- I have two:
"You're not too smart, are you? I like that in a man." -- Kathleen Turner to William Hurt in Body Heat.R Righty/lefty? -- Extreme righty. I've never been able to do much of anything with my left hand, and now I have arthritis in that wrist, which makes things even more difficult. Getting old is such a thrill.
Also "This one goes to eleven." -- Christopher Guest in This is Spinal Tap.
S Sibling -- I'm an only.
T Time you wake up -- Well, I usually get up around 8. But I'm not actually awake until around 10 or so.
U Underwear -- Yes, I wear it. That's as much as you need to know.
V Veggies you dislike -- Not crazy about zucchini, unless it's well disguised. Otherwise, I'm a definite veggie lover.
W What makes you run late? Just about anything. I have a problem with punctuality.
X Xrays you have had -- You name it, I've had it X-rayed. OK, that's not completely true, but almost.
Y Yummy food you make -- Other than potato salad and guacamole, not much of anything. I used to make a great pot roast and a delicious pecan pie (my husband's grandmother's recipe), but we can't eat those things anymore so I never make them. Bummer.
Z Zoo animal -- Well, it's been about thirty years since I visited a zoo. And I don't think I actually have a favorite zoo animal. I'm always drawn to the big cats, though. I'd love to pet one of those gorgeous tigers!
