Saturday meme-ing

I'm sick of bitching about various and sundry relatives, so I meme. Feel free to play along.

As stolen from Joke, who stole it from Poppy, who stole it from someone else. As you do.

Accent: Well, I don't think I have one, but I think I'm kidding myself, since I grew up in Massachusetts, a bit west of Boston. I also lived in England and I've been married to a Canadian for six years. I have bizarre pronunciations of some words.

Booze: Guinness, and not that super-cooled crap either. Red wine, as long as it's not too sweet. Maker's Mark. Jameson's. Plymouth Gin and tonic. And, vile though it may be, Red Bull and vodka. I cannot wait until I can drink again.

Chore I Hate: Pretty much all of them, but I really hate doing the dishes.

Dog or Cat: One of each, both dumb as a box of rocks. But nice.

Essential Electronics: Computer. Preferably the G5.

Favorite Perfume: Mademoiselle by Chanel and Chanel #5, although I think being pregnant is fucking with the last one because lately, when I wear it, it smells funky after an hour or two.

Gold or Silver: Yellow gold, preferably studded with saphhires.

Hometown: Auburn, Massachusetts

Insomnia: Not so much right now, but I do get it and it annoys the fuck out of me.

Job Title: Chief cook and bottle washer, chauffeur, general dogsbody. Oh, and administrative assistant. Whoopee.

Kids: Three, soon to be four, god help me.

Living arrangements: House that I own, for the first time in my life, with one husband, two of the three kids, one dog and one cat. And a mouse whose days are numbered.

Most admirable traits: Um, according to my sister, I don't have any. I think I'm loyal, sometimes to a fault.

Number of sexual partners: Enough that I know what I'm doing.

Overnight hospital stays: Three, for three babies.

Phobias: None, really. I don't like heights, but it's more of a "Urgh, I'm going to throw up" than a paralyzing fear.

Quote: When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it. - Bernard Bailey

Religion: Happily agnostic.

Siblings: One opinionated sister.

Time I wake up: 5 a.m. during the week, around 7 on the weekends, depending on the Boo.

Unusual talent or skill: I don't think I have one. I'm pretty ordinary.

Vegetables I love: I pretty much like them all.

Worst habit: Impatience

X-rays: Two broken fingers and a shitload of cavities.

Yummy foods I make: Lasagna, tacos (does that count as cooking?), chili, I'll attempt just about anything, with varying degrees of success.

Zodiac sign: Scorpio. A seething intensity of emotional energy under a placid exterior. Yeah, that's me.

This is a cool meme!

When I first met you, I expected you to have an British accent because you use words like "mum" and some others I can't think of right I know why!

And perfumes I normally wore smelled weird on me too while I was pregnant.
