The heading on this is pretty self-explanatory, isn't it? So, here goes... this one is also ganked from demonlord_lover:
Accent: Normally Midwestern Twangy. It varies, quite a bit, depending upon who I'm talking to... I have the most horrible talent for mimicking accents without realizing it.
Breakfast or no breakfast: No. Not unless MSK has forced the usual Sunday morning fare upon me yet again. Eggs, bacon and toast. Eggs usually underdone, bacon usually HORRIBLY overdone and toast soggy. Ewww. I can't seem to impress upon him that I'm just not into it anymore (after 25 year's worth).
Chore I don’t care for: Housework - of any sort. I can DO it, and do it well, but cannot seem to FORCE myself to indulge on a regular basis.
Dog or Cat: Cat. Usually. Most often George, since Minkie long ago decided that the boy was his favorite.
Essential Electronics: Computer - and the computer in my truck. The one that makes it so that it runs.
Favorite Cologne: Wings.
Gold or Silver: Silver. For some strange reason, it looks better on me, I think.
Handbag I carry most often: Tote with pic that Jess drew on it... I have several. Second fave is a "Starry Night" tote that I picked up at a Detroit Institute of Arts exhibit (in better economic times).
Insomnia: Sometimes. For no apparent reason whatsoever.
Job Title: I like Demonlordlover's description... doormat. Actually, the one people seem to call me most often is MOM. Or, THE mom.
Kids: Two natural; one (large one), by marriage (MSK); several more quasi-adopted.
Living Arrangements: My very own pit, complete with animal fur floating hither and yon on a regular basis.
Most Admirable Trait: Keeping my head (usually) while others hyperventilate. I prefer to call it adjusting to one's changing circumstances. Or, rolling with the punches??
Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: I used to lie like a rug. Seriously. I could lie with the best AND worst of 'em. I outgrew it quickly when I decided that I wanted my kids to trust me when I told them things.
Overnight hospital stays: More than I care to remember: tonsils, rhinoplasty (to correct a deviated septum), appendectomy, kidney stone, labor & delivery twice. I think that's it, but I'm getting fuzzy on details like that!
Phobias: Lots of 'em... mostly involving insect life. Arachnids and earwigs... and I don't like ants much either. At least, not in the house.
Quote: It'll be FINE. Just FINE. Everything is FINE. Trust me!
Reason to smile: Kids... even as big as they are, they still make me laugh.
Siblings: Two sisters... both younger... both convinced that I'm not altogether there, y'know?
Time I wake up: When I HAVE to. Which is usually three or four times every day. Really Early, when MSK leaves. Early, when Jessa leaves (the past two weeks). Mid-morning, when Steven leaves. Almost Noon, when Melanie calls. I may not get to sleep very early at night, but I make up for it with the 'snoozing!' Unusual Talent or Skill: Juggling. Not really juggling, in the physical sense, though. Juggling everyone else's schedules, likes, dislikes, timetables, needs, wants, etc.
Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: Eggplant. It's just too strange looking... and... well... STRANGE.
Worst Habit: Inability to use that little two-letter word... "no." Oh yeah, and disappearing for weeks at a time from my online communities. Tends to make people nervous, I think. Sorry!
X-rays: Foot, hand, head (several times... still empty!), leg, knee, throat, upper GI, lower GI, teeth (frequently), kidneys... not sure what else.
Yummy Stuff: Ice cream, these days. Especially ice cream that will totally screw up my ulcerative colitis, like Coconut Almond Chip!! I can hardly wait until Homemade Brand brings back the Peach ice cream with Peaches in it for summer... ooooh, my fave!
So, that's number 2. One more, and then I'm off to make dinner!
