Old-School Blogging

I found this Old-School Blogging idea today while checking out Single Mom in the South's blog ( which she picked up from The Miss Elaine-ous Life ( and thought that I'd give it a whirl.  Please check these ladies out!

Alphabet Meme 

A. Attached or Single?  Divorced and single but would like to change that to attached someday.

B. Best Friend? Stinky - yes, my ex-husband.  We may not have been able to stay married but he's still my best friend.  He's seen me at my best and my worst and I probably couldn't do or say anything that would shock him

C. Cake or pie?  Definitely cake - the more chocolate the better

D. Day of choice?  Any day that I don't have to work!

E. Essential Item?  Tea!  I couldn't make it through my day without tea

F. Favorite color?   Green

G. Gummy bears or worms?  Not keen on either really but I'll say bears.  I can't imagine eating anything that looks like a worm without gagging

H. Hometown?  Pointe-Claire, QC.  I've moved around a bit but have spent the last seventeen years just ten minutes away. 

I. Favorite Indulgence?   Chocolate (see the answer to C)

J. January or July?    January.  Our summers are so hot and humid and I'm definitely not a hot weather person

K. Kids?   2 - a boy and a girl

L. Life isn’t complete without?  My kids, my friends, chocolate..... 

M. Marriage date?  February 18 1997 (also his birthday) not that it really matters since we're divorced and don't celebrate it anymore.

N. Number of brothers/sisters?  None (no I wasn't a spoiled only-child!)

O. Oranges or Apples.   Oranges

P. Phobias?  Nope

Q. Quotes?   "I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good"

R. Reasons to smile?   My kids, my friends, my home, the fact that we are here to see another day, chocolate

S. Season of choice?  Autumn - no heat and humidity, no ice on the ground, beautiful colours  

T. Tag 5 People.   I am far too shy to tag people without permission and it would take too long to get that so..... nope

U. Unknown fact about me?  I obsess about everything.  If I have an event coming up, I'll go over the details and possible outcomes in my head until I'm totally wound up.

V. Vegetable?  Fiddleheads which are only available for about two weeks every spring so I gorge on them

W. Worst habit?  Eating my feelings away

X. Xray or Ultrasound?   No feelings either way but I had an MRI once and actually fell asleep in it.  Great little cat-nap!

Y. Your favorite food?  You may have noticed a trend in my answers above - chocolate!

Z. Zodiac sign?  Aquarius.  Don't worry, I'll be sure to let you know when my birthday is coming up, well in advance  :)



  1. Thanks for the shout out! Good for you and your ex for not only remaining cordial, but friends. My ex and I are so far from that, I can't even imagine!

    1. Believe me, it took some work and a willingness to put the bad shit behind us but it was worth it. We have been able to raise our kids as a team and they have thrived because of it.

  2. Okay, I have NO idea what fiddleheads are! I'm going to have to google that one! ha!

    I love chocolate too. I totally get it. ;)

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. You should definitely google them; they are delicious thrown in a pan with some butter and garlic! Thanks for putting this idea out for us; it was fun :)

  3. How fun! It's so nice to know I'm not the only obsessive one around! ;) I'm glad I was able to get to know you a bit more.

    1. Thanks Rhonda! Writing prompts like this are a great way to connect.

      My ex and I would almost always end up bickering before any big event because we'd get so wound up. Good times!
