Old School Blogging, June: The ABC’s of Me!


I never lost my love for blogging memes. They are loads of fun, and great for connecting with other bloggers who are still kicking ass while keeping blogging fun. Now that it’s Friday, I’m kicking off my work “shoes” and getting into some bloggy goodness. And hey, if you want to join, do stop by Misselaineous Life where Elaine is hosting this with Jennifer.

So here goes:

A. Attached or Single? Attached since 2001 to my OTL: Only Ton de Luna.

B. Best Friend? OTL

C. Cake or pie? Ack, why this choice?! Right now, I want both, because I’ve been avoiding carbs. So I want strawberry cake, and apple pie a la mode.

D. Day of choice? Saturdays.

E. Essential Item? Coffee.

F. Favorite color? Pink. (I know, right? You never would have guessed.)

G. Gummy bears or worms? Erm, pass.

H. Home town? Manila, Philippines.

I. Favorite Indulgence? Spa days.

J. January or July? January; it’s the coolest time of the year. It rains constantly in July over here.

K. Kids? 1 boy.

L. Life isn’t complete without? Coffee. Ice cream. Sex. My family.

M. Marriage date? April 12, 2008.

N. Number of brothers/sisters? 2 bros. And 2 sisters-in-law!

O. Oranges or Apples. Fresh OJ; apple pie (need I say more that I am craving right now)

P. Phobias? Lizards. Specifically the kinds outside on our lanai right now congregating around the lanai lamp. Shoo!

Q. Quotes? Currently: “Above all, try something.” – FDR

R. Reasons to smile? Books… current plans to makeover the apartment… new friends… new clothes (yay!)… too many to count.

S. Season of choice? I miss cool weather, so Spring or Fall.

T. Tag 5 People. Ruth, Toni, Patty, Belle, Janice.

U. Unknown fact about me? I took street jazz lessons when I was fifteen. It was then that I realized I was born to be a writer. (Haha.)

V. Vegetable? Broccoli.

W. Worst habit? Not finishing a book from cover to cover.

X. Xray or Ultrasound? What’s the point of this question — for checking babies? Ultrasound!

Y. Your favorite food? Ugh, why ask me this minutes before dinner? I can only think of cravings right now, which happens to be a favorite: Fried breaded mozzarella sticks with pomodoro.

Z. Zodiac sign? Sagittarius

      Bonjour, Jennie! (Sorry, I had to! Haha! It’s my blog anyway, LOL)
      Oh, I’ve not been doing low carb. No way. Just avoiding them white sugars and them cream-based foods because of a cough I’ve been dealing with for a week — no dairy, no white carbs allowed!

      P.S. I love France, too. Though I have only been to Paris, and it was everything I ever wanted! :)
      Manila’s lovely, but I’ve been craving for cool weather lately! So hot!

    Oooh fun!!! And you tagged me, yay! :)
    I’m definitely going to do this. Blogging memes make me all excited to write. I’m looking forward to reading all the other bloggers’ posts too.

    PS Your L answer shocked me a wee bit there! I never saw it coming haha, and you know I don’t mean ice cream, coffee or family. But yeah, you are one kick ass lady! :)

      Not all books, I’d say. Mostly reference books and business books, but never novels! I finish all novels from cover to cover, sometimes in a matter of days only!

      Haha! I thought twice about hitting “publish” when I wrote that, but I was like, “Well, I REALLY mean it, don’t I?”
