If I write about what’s really on my mind it will be something like: hate, scared, hate, hate, fear. So, I stole a meme from Robyn

Accent: I have a mixed up accent. I still have some New Yorker (western NY that is, thank you very much) but, it’s mixed in with a Northern Neck, Virginia mush mouth and y’all. And, I call people, hon, a lot. I am a little old southern woman in a 31 year old, yankee body.

Booze: Vodka! Wine! Crown Royal! My favorite is good vodka, then cheap wine, then Crown Royal. Or mix it up. Birthday weekend (which I need to write about, still) I drank massive quantities of Crown Royal and Jaegermeister. Speaking of which, I am a sorority girl at heart, I adore Jaeger. I would kill for a bottle of it, right now.

Chore I hate: Vaccum. I hate it and I can never spell it right. I’d rather wash 1000 sinks of dishes then vaccum.

Dog or cat: Dog but, not right now.

Essential electronics: My computer. I have no other gadgets, although I would kill for a laptop.

Favourite cologne(s): L’air du Temps and (my trashy redneck favorite) Lady Stetson. I adore more expensive ones but, I paying hundreds of dollars for a smell? Not happening.

Gold or silver: I like silver more but, have more gold.

Hometown: I was born in Niagara Falls, NY, raised in Colonial Beach, VA. Colonial Beach is home, even though I don’t live there anymore.

Insomnia: Always. Which is why I sleep odd hours.

Job title: Pain in the ass

Kids: None.

Living arrangements: Little flowerpot.

Most admirable trait: Loyalty. I’m the most loyal friend you could ever ask for.

Number of sexual partners: Right, only if I’m sleeping with you do you need to know that number.

Overnight hospital stays: 5 or 6. Let’s count:
Meningitis as an infant

Throat/virus thing at 6 or so.

Virus at 12.

Tonsilectomy at 20 (yes, I was old)

Spinal headache, allergic reaction to injected iodine at 23

Cellulitis at 28 or so? Can’t remember.

So, 6, that I remember.

Phobias: Heights. Bridges. Being alone.

Quote: “Reality has a well-known liberal bias”. – Stephen Colbert for now, it changes, often

Religion: Confused? Believer but, still confused.

Siblings: Two younger sisters, one younger brother

Time I wake up: It changes daily.

Unusual talent or skill: I can tie knots in a cherry stem with my tongue. I can crack the knuckles on my right hand, by just closing my fist, over and over again.

Vegetable I refuse to eat: Cooked spinach.

Worst habit: Smoking

X-rays: I glow in the dark.

Yummy foods I make: Everything I make. Kidding. I am a pretty good cook though.

Zodiac sign: Taurus.

Graduation time…

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

On Monday night at 7:00PM, Tony graduated with 2 Associate’s Degrees in Science and one certification. (last year he received 3 certifications.) All of his degrees and certifications are in engineering fields. If I could find the program, I’d write them out but, it seems to have hidden itself.

He graduated Summa Cum Laude, the medal (which weighs 800 lbs) around his neck is for that. I’m so proud of him I could burst. 2 degrees, multiple certifications, all from someone who absolutely hated high school.

Congratulations Tony.

Just a quick update.

New style that is one of Blogger’s templates, I had to get away from the red and black.

I added Google’s Adsense solely to see if the site could pay for its own registration. If y’all have a problem with it, let me know. I’d rather not upset anyone with it.

And, that’s it for right now, I’m working on 3 different sites tonight and want to get them all done, asap.
