ABC - that's how elementary it's going to be.......

meno tagged me for the abc meme.

D. Drink of choice-water, water and more water. .... coffee; Starbuck's House Blend with heavy whipping cream .....equal parts Dewars scotch and white creme d' menthe on the rocks.
E. Essential item-fountain pen....and either peacock or purple ink cartridges. Writing just isn't the same without them.

  1. Great list! Scotch? Didn't think you drank! I am also finding that I am starting to like yellow also- it's just bright and happy, not enough of that in todays world. Love the quote 'Dumb as dirt,- as well as the deep thinker one!

    Thanks for tagging me- I will put mine up later today!

  2. Great job. I like yellow too, but a soft yellow, not the color of mustard.
    I am intrigued by your siblings and that you don't speak, or have never met.

  3. toni-there was a time in my life that I drank heavily on occassions and always scotch or wine, preferably from the Mosel or Lambrusco with italian food. Oh, yes, and an occassional sip of my husbands beer. When we visited England I found that I liked ale. Now I have the drink mentioned maybe once every three months, a glass of wine once every two months and a marguerita as often as once a month if we are having Mexican at our favorite place where they are 99c. Probably because I was always a social drinker and I am no longer social?

  4. meno-no baby poop yellow as I refer to mustard.

    Everyone tried to guess what set my brother off. It is a long story that I'll work on to post. I appologized for upsetting him to no avail. I think maybe now he is too ashamed?

    I have never met the half brother that our father fathered after he and my mother were divorced. I didn't even know he existed until I was way older.

  5. Sorry. Blogging cannot be classified as a bad habit; I have too many other things that I put in that category, so you just can't put it there.

  6. jen-I just realized how beneficial blogging can be and have decided to stop considering it a bad habit. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.


A pony for your thoughts.
