This is Me, A-Z

I haven't done a blog hop in a while.  I had fun with this one. This hop is on until July 13.   To join in, or get to know others, click here:

This is me, from A to Z

A: Age
Really, I have to tell you?  Well, I started this blog when I was 50.  You do the math.

B: Biggest fear
Something will happen to my husband or daughter

C: Current time
10:15 am

D: Drink you last had

E: Every day starts with
“Can’t I just stay in bed a little longer?”

F: Favorite Song

Too, too many.  But here is the haunting, ethereal one I come back to whenever asked this question:

G: Ghosts, are they real?
I rather hope so.

H: Hometown
On the south shore of Massachusetts, where I've been for the last 24 years.  Before that, a town a bit west of Boston.

I: In love with
Life and my dear, dear husband.

J: Jealous of?
Hmmm.  Try not to be.  Really.

K: Killed someone?
In my second novel, I killed of the MC’s father…and cried for about an hour.  Haven’t done it since.

L: Last time you cried?
I’m pretty sure I cried watching a video someone put on FB, but since I do that regularly, I can’t remember which one.

M: Middle name?
Elizabeth, which I now use as my first name.  Believe it or not, my real first name is Mary.

N: Number of siblings?

O: One wish?
To get my act in gear, finish my current manuscript and finally publish a novel.

P: Person you last called?
My daughter

Q: Question you're always asked?
I moved to my husband's home town and he is one of eight siblings.  If it is not, "Are you related to...?"   then it's ...Which one are you married to?"

R: Reason to smile?
My husband, my daughter, my garden, when my articles are in print, when someone says something nice about my writing, better yet, when someone acknowledges me as a writer…

S: Sounds that annoy you?
We are on a jet path to the airport.  When the wind comes from the northwest, we hear every circling plane, and they fly low.

T: Time you woke up?
5:20 am.

U: Underwear color?

V: Vacation destination?
Just returned from Charleston, SC, which has been on my bucket list for years.  I haven’t replaced it yet.

W: Worst habit?
Reading when I should be doing everything else.

X: X-Rays you've had?
Besides the airport and dentist?  I have them pretty regularly to check on what (fingers crossed) remains a benign medical condition.

Y: Your favorite food?
To many to mention, but here are a few: bread pudding, corn and clam chowder, roast leg of lamb, a fresh tomato off the vine…preferable with fresh basil and mozzarella.  Shrimp or clam linguini.  Bolognese.  Roasted potatoes.  Blueberry pie.  Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate brownie, or New York Super Fudge Chunk…really.  If it’s not liver and it’s prepared well, then it’s my favorite. 

Z: Zodiac sign
Cancer.  Yep. Got a birthday coming up!

When you wake up that early, yeah, the first thought is can I stay in bed longer? Like, three or more hours?
Glad you got your trip in to Charleston. It's a fun town with lots of history.

Kathleen Valentine said...

Greetings from the North Shore of Massachusetts! Guess that explains your love of corn chowder--people outside New England just don't understand. Nice to meet you!

Oooh...I'm listening to your favorite song - indeed, haunting, ethereal is the perfect description! Love it. My all-time favorite song/piece of music is "Finlandia." I've been know to listen to it six or seven times a day. In a row. I think it is on every single playlist I have on my iPod.

Enjoy your weekend!

This was fun and interesting to read and to learn more about you. I like your reasons to smile. My reasons to smile are very similar to yours.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

That was very upbeat and nice to read about you.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Fun stuff! I really liked your answer to "I" and fingers crossed for continued good X-ray results. And I actually have a mini carton of Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie in my freezer right now. :)

Bish Denham said...

I've never heard that song before! No wonder you keep going back to it. Beautiful.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Great to know so much about you. I have a large family too. I love it.

Joanne said...

fun answers. I don't consider reading at any time to be a bad habit. And you by getting up so early, maybe you should answer yourself when you ask to stay in bed long, "why yes, I think I will"

Debbie D. said...

Thanks for joining the blogfest, Liza! (You will find the original post HERE. It was fun learning something about you. Jet noises on a regular basis would be annoying. Have a great week!

CWMartin said...

Sure with you on the Ben and Jerry's! I'll be back later to listen to the song, currently watching the MI breaking news...

cleemckenzie said...

Another Cancer child! How many of you are there in this writing/blogging world? Thanks for stopping in at The Write Game. I love new visitors, and I loved learning about you on this TMI. I start my day just about the same as you do!

DeeDee said...

Most of your favorite food are mine too :)
Lovely replies

Yolanda Renée said...

Great answers!
I love the fact that you chose to participate, it's such fun to learn more about our blogging friends. Your list of food made my mouth water! LOL And it's too late for a snack, damn! :)
I love the name Elizabeth, it was my choice for a daughter. "Sarah Elizabeth"
Have a truly wonderful weekend!
