Whee! Day one of the A to Z blogging challenge is here! I figured what better way to start this 26 day extravaganza than to dedicate the first post to the ABC’s of me, hehe!
Are you ready for some random tidbits? I hope so, because here we go!
BUFFALO a powerfully cool animal which also happens to be the mascot for the University of Colorado, my alma mater.
CHORES I despise them. All of them, hehe! The worst though? It’s a toss up between dishes and laundry. They both never seem completely “done.” It’s like, there’s always one more fork or spoon or one more sock lying around. Neither sink nor hamper is ever empty. Well, not for me at least, hehe!
DOG sadly, I have only one now. But I’m happy I have him because he’s so totally awesome! He’s a beefy bull terrier named Jayne, after Firefly/Serenity’s Jayne Cobb. You can see a pic of his sweet face if you go to my bio HERE.
ENGAGE! One of, like, my favorite words Captain Picard from Star Trek says. I can be found saying it often. Take out the trash… ENGAGE! Brew the tea… ENGAGE! Turn left… ENGAGE! Enter the nerd-sphere… already there! hehe!
FACEBOOK PAGE I haz one, hehe, click HERE if you’d “like” to see it.
GRINDSTONE where my nose has been lately.
HORSES! When I was a teenager my dreams came true. Molly was my first horse, an old loyal girl, followed by Flash, my pretty-boy quarterhorse/paint mix and then the graceful prancing saddlebred, Raisin. I had a lot of fun riding them on the trails, in parades and showing them off in the National Western Stockshow.
IMAGINATION I have an active one, hehe!
are my guilty little pleasure, hehe!
LYMPHOMA a type of cancer my husband had — twice.
MEXICO where some of my mother’s family is from.
NEDERLAND is a small mountain town in Colorado where I used to live when I was in 3rd grade.
OUTSIDERS by S.E. Hinton, is one of like, my favorite books (and movies!). Stay gold, Ponyboy.
PINTEREST! I’m there, pinning things that inspire my writing, quotable quotes, and things that make me giggle and want to share with others. Click HERE to check my boards.
QUOTABLE QUOTE one of my favorites from Seinfeld is “Serenity Now!” the way George’s father screams it so boisterously is like a complete contradiction to what he’s looking for, haha! Or maybe it’s that explosive outburst that’s supposed to bring him serenity. Either way, I giggle when I think of Jerry Stiller lifting his arms up, face turned to the sky and bellowing “SERENITY NOW” the way only Jerry Stiller can. And btw, how can I not like something that has one of my favorite movie titles in it? Serenity, sigh!
REDROCKS amphitheater is like, THE coolest place to attend a concert. I went to see Pearl Jam with two of my besties from High School. awe-some!
SAID is my for real last name.
TWITTER! I’m there too, spouting random thoughts and musings and sharing the occasional link I found helpful while writing. My handle is @Kelly_Said
UNCLE I had an uncle who was a member of the Hell’s Angels.
VOLLEYBALL for as vertically challenged as I am, I did play sports in high school. Volleyball was one (yes, really, hehe!) and soccer was another. I have some pins and what not still attached to my letterwoman’s jacket.
WILLOW is like, another one of my favorite movies! I still giggle when I think of Franjean (Kevin Pollack) saying to Madmartigan, “I stole the baby from you, Daikini! While you were taking a peepee!” hehehehe!
XEROX I used to work for a company who leased XEROX machines to companies, schools and private organizations.
YOUNG ADULTS are the people I write for.
ZOO sometimes I walk my dog at a park near the zoo, and on the right occasion you can hear the lions chuffing or the wolves yipping and howling.
There you have it, the ABC’s of me!
Thanks for stopping by, did you see anything we have in common? Wanna share some of the vowels or consonants of you?
