my ABC's (no, it's not bubble gum!)

     Scrolling through the list of posts by blogs I follow this morning I found one that mNg of I'm Not Skinny, So What? posted that looked really fun. Essentially, it was a list of random questions in alphabetical order that the poster answered. When I reached the bottom, I saw that she had tagged me for doing it next (of course, if I had just read my new comments first, I wouldn't have been suprised.) I like suprises though, so it was fine by me!   
A. Age: 19.

B. Bed size: Queen.

C. Chore you hate: Cleaning out the chicken coop- ick!

D. Day:  I like Tuesdays because they're usually my lazy day that I can spend however I like :)

E. Essential start to your day: Shower. Without one, I'm a zombie and my hair looks grubby (darn you, sebum!)

F. Favourite colour: Contrary to what my blog's name may imply, it's purple. Blue is my lucky color, though!

G. Gold or Silver: White gold ;)

H. Height: 5'8".

I. Instruments: I'm a musical failure :( None for me. I like the madolin and the banjo, though!  

J. Job title: Team member/ cashier lady.

K. Kids: Love kids :) Not having any until I'm married and out of school (or at least close to it), though.

L. Live: In Virginia, USA. Not near the coast, though- in the southwestern region, near the WV state line, in the mountains.

M. Mum’s name: Teresa :)

N. Nicknames: Sam, Sammie, Sam-bo, 'Mantha. All short for Samantha.

O. Overnight hospital stays: I stayed about 5 nights when I had my back surgery for scholiosis in the 6th grade.

P. Pet peeve: Bullying. I just got home from paying a visit to the high school with my parents because a group of upperclassmen boys  thought it would be funny to write "no parking" and draw male genitalia on the windows of the minivan she drives, along with sticking forged parking tickets under the wipers. I hate to see cyber- bullies too. Some people get so brave when they're sitting behind a computer screen.

Q. Quote from a movie: "You don't throw a whole life away just because it's a little banged up." Tom Smith in Seabiscuit. I love that movie too much!

R. Right or left handed: I'm a righty!

S. Siblings: Younger sister (age 16) and  a twin sister.

T. Time you wake up: Now that school is over, it really varies. When school was in session, around 7 AM or a smidge earlier.

U. Underwear: They're leopard print! And not hanging out of my pants (I guess that bettter than the alternative, though!)

V. Vegetables you dislike: Green bell peppers :P Bleh! I love red and yellow peppers, though.

W. What makes you run late: Traffic. The dog. My sisters. That shirt I couldn't find that I just HAD to wear. Dropping my earing on the carpet. Anything and everything, honestly.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: A whole bunch of my back when I was little and some dental X-rays, both for checkups and for when I had to get braces.

Y. Yummy food you make: I can grill a pretty mean steak.

Z. Zoo: I love zoos! The last time I went to one I saw a thingie giving birth (my mind always goes blank at the most convenient times!) It was so neat not just because I got to witness such an event, but because those thingies are my favorite zoo animals (which makes that fact that I can't remember what they're called even worse.)
I thought I'd share a pic of the thingie and her new born. Yeah, way to go Mama Thingie, have that baby in a mud hole, even though the whole rest of the enclosure is dry. That's the way to do it, right there.

     So, that was fun! I'm supposed to tag other bloggers, and since mNg already tagged Ki of Ki and Makeup and VijiiS of Fierce Nerditude, I'm tagging Jill of Just Peachy and Laur of Laur's Beauty Blog, along with anyone else who wants to do it :)  


  1. *Brain fart has ended* Thingies = bongos. I kept wanting to call it an Oryx, and I knew that wasn't it. Then came Ebok, and I knew that wasn't it either. So bongo it was!

  2. Ooh, very interesting. I have to get around to doing this and at least two other tags that I have bookmarked SOMEWHERE. xP

    So with you on the bullying thing. There was, up 'til recently, someone who would post rude and increasingly more racist comments under a fake name on my blog. I deleted them as they came, and just recently blocked them. Honestly, I wasn't too bothered, but I can imagine how that might have affected me if I were in a more fragile state of mind. As things are, the most upsetting part was to think that any person would say those things to another human.

  3. Love the quote! I'll have to do this later today! What fun!

  4. I'm glad y'all are joining in the fun!
    @VijiiS: That's horrible and just shows how ignorant they are. My little sister is an extremely sensitive person & she's been bullied throughout school. Administation could never be bothered to get involved, until this. I think it's pretty sad that it takes vandalism and sexual harassment to get their attention.

  5. Yay! Thanks for playing :D And you have a twin sister? How cool!

  6. @mNg: It was fun! And yeah, I wish I thought it was more cool though, lol.
