Blog Me MAYbe!

I have never really done a blogfest. At least, I don’t think I have. My memory doesn’t go back far enough. But anyway, I’m doing one now… this one:

Hosted by Sara McClung, and a bevvy of other awesome folks, it’s basically just a schedule for blogging for the month of May. I work much better with structure, which is why so many of my posts are really just responses to other posts (like YA Highway mostly). Here are the prompts for each day of the week, which I will try my best to follow:

Monday: May I tell you something about writing?

Tuesday: May I tell you something about myself?

Wednesday: May I ask something about you?

Thursday: May I tell you something about someone else?

Friday: May I share something funny?

You don’t have to follow all of the Blog Me Maybe-ers, but I already follow quite a few of them so obviously I win at life.

Go check out the blogfest here

Since today is a Tuesday–may I tell you something about myself? And because I decided to start this blogfest at the last moment, I’m totes stealing the survey that was posted by Jennifer Pickerell, Rebecca Behrens, and Alison Miller. Remember the thing about structure and me loving it? Yeah.

A is for age: More than mid-twenties. Less than thirty.

B is for breakfast today: Yogurt, banana, granola bar. I have to eat all three everyday because my vitamins make my stomach hurt if I eat anything less. Boo.

C is for currently craving: Something salty, but also sweet.

D is for dinner tonight: Green curry chicken, or Tikka Masala, it has to be one of those because today is the ‘best by’ date on my naan, and I don’t like to eat things past the ‘best by’ date.

E is for favorite type of exercise: Hiking.

F is for an irrational fear: Feeling trapped, communicable diseases (I will NOT watch that movie Contagion), being poisoned/drugged if my drink is out of my sight for too long. 

G is for gross food: I’m pretty open to foods, so I don’t know… sweet breads?

H is for hometown: Fredericksburg, VA.

I is for something important: My husband, my cats, sleeping, eating…

J is for current favorite jam: Strawberry (Or for jam as in music–I’ve been loving Frank Turner almost nonstop lately).

K is for kids: Do neices count? I have two of those, but no kids of my own yet.

L is for current location: In a sea of cubicles.

M is for the most recent way you spent money: Whole Foods salad bar yesterday

N is for something you need: Love!

O is for occupation: Officey stuff. I used to do freelance writing, but it got to be too stressful for me. See: my need for structure.

P is for pet peeve: Rude drivers, people that are in too much of a hurry, closed-minded people

Q is for a quote: “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” – Anais Nin

R is for random fact about you: I love going to theater shows. They never fail to blow me away.

S is for favorite healthy snack: Seaweed. So so good!

T is for favorite treat: Chocolatey things.

U is for something that makes you unique: I’ve met some famous rockstars (if they’d even be considered famous anymore–this was back in the 90’s). My dad used to be a bouncer, so between 6th through 8th/9th grades I got to go backstage a lot and meet people. Some of them were real assholes, but some were awesome. I remember POE being my favorite, she gave me this whole pep talk about some boy I liked.

V is for favorite vegetable: Spinach or lima beans–are lima beans vegetables or beans?

W is for today’s workout: Hahahahahaa!

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Lots. My right arm at least three times, possibly more, ring finger, pinky toe, teeth, ribs, mammograms, CT scan and MRI of my brain. I used to break a lot. 

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Yesterday was pretty boring actually… I guess the highlight was when my husband and I walked in and caught one of our cats cleaning the other one. They’ve been pretending to hate each other, but now we know the truth!

Z is for your time zone: Eastern

So, are you doing Blog Me MAYbe??

    Love the Whole Foods salad bar–I spend so much money there! Great quote, too. Reading all of the posts with this survey has been so much fun–I feel like I have a lot in common with my writer friends outside of writing now. 🙂

      That salad bar is AWESOME, I just hate that you have to pay by weight. Don’t they know that some of the best stuff is super-heavy? Oh, they do? Bastards.

      OMG, seriously? That’s a brave kitty. My cats don’t even want to go outside. We tempt them by leaving the door open, but they just sniff outside for a second and decide they much prefer to go lay on a pillow or something, lol.

      I know, shows are soooo expensive! When we go to NYC we try to use TKTS, but mostly it’s just full price for less-than-stellar seats, lol. Oh well, as long as my view isn’t blocked by an enormous pillar or something, it’s still a ton of fun 🙂
