Whoo-hoo! It's old school blogging time! Get ready, folks. It’s another barn-stormin’ post about MEMEMEMEMEMEMEME!
This month, I am – ahem – co-hosting with the very special president of the exclusive Old School Blogging Association, Elaine of The Miss-Elaine-ous Life. Get out your diamonds and pearls people, because you are among royalty here. If you play your cards right you will receive special favor from one of the association's officers: Me.
|Totally made that up - there are no officers in OSB.|
Wow. You ARE a disappointment.
|Just kidding! ZING!|
Ha, ha. I don’t play cards, either. Cards are for TRASH. (I read that on the internet this week. Been using it non-stop for three days.)
This month, OSB is all about The ABCs of Me. Or, you, if you choose to play along. It’s really quite simple, Martha – you copy my questions, answer them your own darn self and write your own darn blog post and link it here or on Elaine’s blog and people will comment and gush about how wonderful you are DO I HAVE TO SPELL THE CONCEPT OF BLOGGING OUT FOR YOU
Very well; I will spell it out for you. Alphabetically, of course.
Copy the questions. Generate your own answers. Link on this blog post or Elaine’s blog post. Share on social media. Take a bow. Watch people adore you. You are a rock star.
Whew. That was hard.

The ABCs of ME – by Andrea Mowery, Official Self-Appointed Officer of the OSB Association, and Official Title Inventor for OSB Association
A- Age: 65. Don’t I look good for my age? Looks like I’m about 42, right?
|I have waited four months to use |
this selfie on my blog.
B- Biggest Fear: I am superstitious and I hate revealing these things. But I’ll be brave and say that I’m definitely afraid of winning the lottery and / or becoming friends with oh I don’t know, someone important like Jon Hamm or Beyoncé.
|Welcome, Jon Hamm. May I take your pants?|
C- Current Time: 12:26 pm.
D- Drink you last had: Coffee. And before that, more coffee.
E- Easiest Person To Talk to: My mother. She doesn’t mind that my stories go too long, because she has lived with my father for a hundred and forty-three years.
F- Favorite Song: I love songs way after they’ve been played out. Still hanging onto Chandelier and Get Lucky. Pop music is too fickle for me. Where did all the Blank Space fans go?
G- Grossest Memory: When I was five years old, I found a piece of chocolate on the dining room table and popped it in my mouth. It was not chocolate. The cat had just walked across the table.
I’m going to puke.
H- Hometown: Small Town Pennsylvania, USA.
I- In love with: Napping. Ham sandwiches. A quiet house. An hour to read. Having all my chores done. Putting on a pair of jeans after the summer and finding that they’re a little loose.
Yeah – I’m aware that I said I’m in love with ham sandwiches.
J- Jealous Of: Queen Elizabeth.
K- Killed Someone? What kind of question is this? I mean, this could go downhill very quickly for a person.
L- Longest Relationship: Been married for almost 16 years, holla! Longest, though, is being a daughter/ granddaughter / sister / niece / cousin for 42 years. Boom.
|Why yes - my husband's hand is on my butt |
in 90% of our wedding photos.
Why do you ask?
M- Middle Name: Humperdinck. My parents were HUGE Engelbert fans.
It's Leigh. Or IS it?
N- Number of Siblings: 2
O- One Wish: For more wishes, duh. If you don’t think this is a good idea then I would like to wish for your wish, too.
P- Person who you last called: My friend Wanda. She and I are the last two people on earth who still talk on the phone.
Q- Questions you’re always asked: How tall are you? “Like seven or eight feet. I think I’m still growing. I haven’t measured myself in a while.”
Did you play basketball? “Yes. Do you remember Dr. J? I’m him.”
Do you work? “No. I have a posse of forest animals who take care of everything. I pretty much just sit around and eat chips all day. You know, like Snow White."
R- Reason to smile: Both of my children went to school today.
S- Song you last sang: Currently in my head: Boom Clap. As in “Boom, Clap! The sound of my voice! The beat goes on and on and on and on, now! Boom Clap! Blah blah blah blah, Come on with me! Come on with me, now!” I’d like to say “Beethoven’s Concerto Number Seven” or something more highbrow, but, no. Freaking Boom Clap.
T- Time you woke up: 5 am.
U- Underwear Color: Long ago I read in a magazine that women should have four colors of underwear: black, white, pink, and nude. Simple; classic. The problem is that women’s underwear comes in about thirty thousand prints and neon colors, and basic colors are hard to find. It’s frustrating. I am a grown lady – I don’t want cartoon monkeys on my drawers.
V- Vacation Destination: Paris. Forever Paris.
|Not sure why I'm not there right now, but it's not a good enough reason.|
W- Worst Habit: Eating too fast. Good food is wasted on me. It really has to be OMG AMAZING for me to slow down long enough to appreciate it. Terrible habit. Just terrible.
X- X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, neck, hand. I don’t know.
Y- Your favorite food: If I had to eat only one kind of food, it would be vegetables. If I was a more creative cook I would be a vegetarian, but being an omnivore is hard to beat.
Z- Zodiac Sign: Taurus. I love reading about who I am according to the Zodiac. I *know* it’s hooey. I *like* hooey.
“Traditional traits of a Taurus woman include emotional strength, independence, loyalty, introversion, and a flair for the artistic. Taurus women are also genuine and tend to seek out the same quality in others. They don’t become upset easily, but when they do, they have volatile tempers and the capacity for extreme stubbornness” (from horoscopes.lovetoknow.com)
^^^ YES! THAT’S ME! It’s right every time. HOW DO THEY KNOW?!?!?!?
