A to Z of Me on….Me!

Silly me, I didn’t line up anyone for today’s ‘A to Z of Me’. I’m making myself a stand in. Maybe someone feels as snoopy curious as I am when I read these. Some day, I’ll do the ‘What’s In My Purse’ post. Now those are cool!

I’m clever yet have difficulty remembering names and details. I can look like I’m ready to head to Nordstroms or sometimes, headed to Walmart. I love external things but adore my friends who see the internal me. I am fun, am silly and smile, yet my closest friend had a hard time believing me when I told her I have life-long depression.

Blogging has been the best thing I have added to my life and I am over the top about the new friends I have made. This hobby has got me to spend more money on stuff but, my friendships are priceless.

 Everyone has heard the deal were we all have a twin somewhere. I’ve often wondered if this is true for twins…do they have another set out there just like them? Same with triples, quads, etc?

Well, before you go off pondering that, I was tipped off that I had a blog twin. You might find a resemblance when you hop over to I’m Feeling Nail-Venturous. I hope Amy is as delighted to have found me as I am with her.

I’ll say it right up front, Amy is the ‘pretty’ twin. I’m the twin that’s older. LOL

Kari’s skills of sharing swatches goes well beyond just that. Her photos are exquisite and spot on to represent the actual color of the polish. As a puppeteer to life-size dinosaurs, she has had the pleasure of traveling and her stories about that are engaging. So you see, her talents as a nail blogger go much deeper.

Sunday’s A to Z About Me

Today’s A to Z post is on my blogger friend, Erika, owner of Ice Queen’s Nail Parlour. Do you want to see nail swatches that take your breath away? Would you like to really see how a polish looks with photos that are crisp and true to life? Or, like me, all the above and inspired to boot? Then the Ice Queen’s Nail Parlour is a blog you must check out.

Here is the Ice Queen’s A to Z About Me:
 

The A-Z of me.
A. Age:
46 I am older than most of the polish/beauty bloggers out there. 
I don’t know if that is a good thing, or not. lol

B. Bed size:

Duh! Queen, of course! 😀
C. Chore you hate:
Washing dishes by hand. Seriously. I hate washing dishes. Dishes was “my job” growing up. And I grew up in a big family. I would rather do just about any other household chore; tons of laundry, scrub toilets, polish furniture, mop floors for hours than wash a single frakking dish. As far as I am concerned, modern progress peaked with the invention of the dishwasher! lol
D. Day:

Monday. My guys go back to work and I have my house back. 

E. Essential start to your day:


Coffee! 

F. Favorite color: 

Blue. But I also adore pink and love red, as well. 


G. Gold or Silver:

I am a gold girl. I know that wearing gold isn’t “cool” or trendy, but 
then… I am not cool or trendy, so… 😀

H. Height:


5’7″

I. Instruments: 
None. I played the clarinet for a while in Jr. High but if I picked one up, 
now I seriously doubt I could get it to produce anything close to music. 

J. Job title:

Mad housewife.

K. Kids: 

One grown son.

L. Live: 

In Prescott, The Podunk Armpit Capital of Arizona. 

(If you surmised from the former that I don’t like it here, you would be right. ;))
M. Mom’s name:

Letitia

N. Nicknames: 

Ice Queen, Shermie, Khardo, Old Crow, Bitch.

O. Overnight hospital stays: 

Two. Once when I had my son and once when I had surgery.

P. Pet peeve: 


Rude people. Seriously! When did it become a cardinal sin to 
practice simple, good manners?
Q. Quote from a movie: 


“I’m surrounded by idiots!” ~~ Scar in The Lion King

R. Right or left handed: 
Right handed. Very right handed. But, getting serious about polish has helped to 
improve the dexterity in my left hand. 
S. Siblings: 
I am the second eldest of seven. Told you I grew up in a big family. 

T. Time you wake up: 
Fairly early. Usually six-ish. Sometimes I let myself sleep in until eight or so. 


U. Underwear: 
Yes. 
V. Vegetables you dislike: 

Eggplant, Cooked spinach (love the stuff raw, tho) Brussels sprouts, 

certain beans, okra (slime! *shudder*). 

W. What makes you run late: 
Nothing! I am so prompt that is is sickening. If someone else 
causes me to be late, they get it. Both barrels. 
X. X-Rays you’ve had: 

Chest, elbow, wrist, spine, skull.
Y. Yummy food you make: . 

Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!
 Oh, this question was serious? Really? I am a lousy cook. Really. Lousy. Cook. And I have little love for the activity. I can turn out a decent, nourishing meal, if pressed but I would hardly call what comes out of my kitchen “yummy”.

Z. Zoo:


Never been to one. I went to Lion Country Safari when I was a kid (yeah, I am that old! lol) and Sea World a couple of times, back in the 70’s. But I have never been to a zoo.

The Ice Queen not only has nail swatches, she will share press releases and product reviews as well. Grab yourself a refreshing drink and step into Erika’s Parlour for a fresh look at polish reviews and more.

5’3”

I. Instruments: 

Piano and tuba (no, really!). I’d love to be able to play the cello, though.

J. Job title:

Poor soon-to-be college student.

L. Live: 

Yes, I do??

M. Mom’s name:

Vickie

Zaraptor, Zar-Zar (which I HATE, but it stuck), Z-button (that would be my grandmother), and countless other silly nicknames my mom made up.

O. Overnight hospital stays: 

At least six that I can think of off the top of my head, and probably more.


P. Pet peeve: 


SO many. People saying “the fact is is that” instead of “the fact is that,” bad spelling and grammar, endless “um”-ing (which I will admit I am guilty of sometimes, and it kills me)…I could go on.
Q. Quote from a movie: 


“My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” -The Princess Bride

None.

Usually 8:00, though that will be changing once school starts again.

Absolutely. 😛

Everything, it seems like! 🙂

I make really freaking awesome French toast.

I love the St. Louis Zoo.
