A Meme: The ABCs and XYZs of Me

Apples – there is nothing like a crispy, crunchy Red Delicious apple

Beach – any beach will do but my favorite is Nags Head, NC

Crossword puzzles – I enjoy exercising my brain with a Sunday puzzle from the Washington Post or the New York Times

Diaryland – writing entries here for the past 3.5 years has been a wonderful way to process through the many thoughts/feelings and past events

Eyes – blue

Football – Hail to the Redskins and any team playing the Dallas(s) Cowboys

G - it's my first initial and what my father sometimes called me

Hobbies – reading, bowling, and cooking new recipes

Ice Cream – Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia; “K” knows why

Jazz – I listen to more jazz music than any other genre; Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Keith Jarrett, George Gershwin

Kids – none and I will keep it that way

Laundry – my least favorite chore; I do laundry only once a month so it’s a good thing I have over 40 pairs of underwear

Motto – A bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work

Never – I will never get a tattoo

Opera – really not a fan, but I did enjoy seeing Porgy & Bess for my 40th birthday a few years ago

Phobia – heights

Question I ask a lot: Why?

Russell – my first

Sibling – one older sister

University of Maryland – Go Terps!

Vehicle – 2004 Mazda3; one day I will get the Beamer

Whiskey – Crown Royal on the rocks

X-rays – usually at the dentist’s office; my last real x-ray was back in college when I had a foot injury; x-rays didn’t reveal anything that shouldn't have been there, but a week afterwards, a toothpick came out of my heel that I had stepped on in the Architecture Building during a study break while at UM; my father always called it the ‘flagpole’

Yahtzee – My mom played that game with me many times when I was young; I mentally think of it when I play poker

Zodiac sign – Sagittarius
