Me- A to Z

Stole this Meme off No Cool Story's blog. :) Thanks NCS!!

Accent: Southern... Texan, y'all!

Bible Book that I like: Genesis

Chore I don't care for: Any and all. I hate dusting and mopping. I don't like putting laundry away either.

Dog or cat: Neither. How about snake? I don't like things that shed fur and poop more than a couple of times a week.

Essential electronics: Cell phone and DVR. Can not live without my DVR!!

Favorite Perfume: I don't wear any.

Gold or Silver: White gold.

Handbag I carry most often: Does a diaper bag count??

Insomnia: Not usually, but sometimes my brain just will not turn off!!

Job Title: Professional Domestic Engineer aka "Mom"

Kids: Tristan 11.5, Alec 10, Isabel 7.5, Taj 3, Livie 1, Kelsea 8, Karlea 8

Living Arrangements: 4 bedroom, 2 bath

Most admirable trait: According to Seiuli- my honesty. He's so gullible! I would say probably the fact that I can keep a family of 9 organized and on track.

Naughtiest childhood behavior: It's hard to pick just one. Besides some that I won't mention, probably sneaking out. I did that about 4 times a week for 6 months straight.

Overnight hospital stays: 7- giving birth and belly button operations

Phobias: I don't like to be restrained, even just playing around. I don't know what that's called, but I hate it.

Quote: "Big gulps huh?" Lloyd on Dumb and Dumber

Religion: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Siblings: 3 sisters, 1 brother Tara, Nicole, Walker, Ali

Time I wake up: 7am

Unusual talent or skill: I can pick things up with my toes. If I drop something I don't bother bending over. I'm also really good at reading people. I usually know when you're full of crap.

Vegetable I refuse to eat: I'll try most anything. I'm with NCS though, Beets are just nasty.

Worst habit: Biting my nails and cuticles.

X-Rays: Other than dental??? Once on my shoulder when I got hit with a baseball bat. I don't remember any other.

Yummy stuff I cook: Not much. Roast? Sei loves my meatloaf.

Zoo animal I love the most: Beluga whales. They are so pretty! The Duck-billed platypus... I always thought they were cool lookin'.

To be fair I copied the Meme for Millie (forgot to give her credit, my bad).

Snakes? really I don't mind snakes other than their eating habits, I don’t think I could feed them a live mouse :P but hey, that's just me, maybe I would, who knows.
Most admirable trait: According to Seiuli- my honesty. He's so gullible!, LOL!

Phobia: Just thinking about being restrained makes me not being able to breath, which is of course the main reason I hate things close to my face...can't...breath....
I love baby belugas! I love love them. ooh and platypuseseses, they are so cute :)

We should put all of our super-powers for good use Tori.

Keeping a family of 9 on track is definately a great trait, talent, skill!

I had forgotten about the snake! Uggh!

I too bite my nails and cuticles and have been known or not for sneaking out as a kid:)

Stepherz said...

I love this meme! I'm a sucker for meatloaf too. I don't think I've ever met a meatloaf I didn't like. Even the ones out of the school cafeteria!

Beluga whales are pretty special aren't they? I'm partial to sea critters in any form. Except the ones with really sharp teeth or barbed tails. Those are yucky.

I'm sooooo with you on the pooping animal thing! I already have 2 dirty butts to change all day, I'm not cleaning up after animals that need me to do it too.

Tori :) said...

NCS: We feed Wormy pre-killed baby mice. I don't think I'd like throwing something into "the lions den" to die. That's just mean.

Mel: How could you forget about Wormy??? :)

Stepherz: We had a kitten for 2 days. It followed me around whining and pooped on the floor. We gave it away. I already had a baby following me around and pooping!!

tara said...

That was fun! I'll have to do it... maybe after I have the baby (did you get my email about moving my blog... got some weird comments and it wigged me out! Maybe it's the hormones over reacting!)I would love to swim with the belugas at Seaworld!

Robin said...

I like beets on my salad.
Fun post!

Toni said...

Found you over at NCS- I think your meme is hilarious- will be back to lurk soon...

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

I totally screwed mine up. Yours is much cooler! You are such a fun person! Most admirable trait I misconstrewed to be a trait that I don't have but admire in someone else... der.

Anyway, fun list. You can go look at my dorky one now.

Suzanne said...

We have a lot of similar answers. I can't stand to be restrained either. My hubby plays this game with me called "burrito wifey." Needless to say I end up wrapped up in a blanket so tightly that I can't breathe. He thinks it's funny, but it kind of freaks me out!

Great Meme! :)

suyo said...

I was just wondering what zoo I can go to and see a beluga whale?

Tori :) said...

Seiuli! (aka Suyo) Sea World has Beluga Whales, so that's what I was thinking. That's like an "under the sea zoo." So there!
I don't know if I've seen a platypus at the zoo either, but I still think they're cute. To me, zoo animal = animal that does not live in our neighborhood.
You're a nerd.

Kayelyn said...

I guess skunks are not zoo animals:-(

Claustrophobia- I do do not like being held tight, in small spaces, or having my face under water.

I love this blog! Mind if I borrow the idea?

Tori :) said...

Kayelyn - Borrow away! I stole it from another blog and I've seen it on several others.
