That ABC Thing

I do not have a ton to write about today, and I was saving the ABC thing everyone has been doing for a day when I was a bit...speechless (it doesn't happen very often).  ANYWAY, here are the ABCs of Caratunk Girl.

A - Age: 36 until April
B - Bed size: Queen - am I the only one in the blogsphere without a California King?
C - Chore you hate: is there one that I like?
D - Dogs?  Bailey of course!
Never miss a chance to put a picture of you pet in your blog.

E - Essential start to you day: breakfast.  I can't skip breakfast or else I eat everything in sight the rest of the day. 
F - Favorite Color: Blue
G - Gold or Silver: Silver
H - Height: 5' 1.25" (yes, the .25 counts) but I act I am like 6'3"
I - Instruments you play: None, but have been known to blow over to top of an empty beer bottle to an unknown tune.
J - Job Title:  Management Forester
K - Kids: None (does Bailey count?)
L - Live: Caratunk, Maine, population 60
M - Mom's name: Mary
N - Nickname: Man, Mand, Manderella, Mandykins, Shorty, Bam Bam (think Fred Flintstone), Scooter...I probably have some more but that is all I can think of.
O - Overnight hospital stays: None that I know of.
P - Pet Peeve -Being late.
Q - Quote from a movie: "I've got two guns. One for each of ya." and "Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself." OH AND "Are you gonna do something, or just stand there and bleed?" all from Tombstone.  I love that movie and can probably recite most of the script.  Actually I typed out about 8 more quotes but just deleted it thinking I might have overdone it.
R - Right or Left handed? Right, but I think every guy I have ever dated was left handed. Isn't that a strange and uninteresting fact?
S - Siblings: None.
T - Time you wake up: In the winter 6ish, it is so cold and dark!! In the summer, 4:00-4:30.
U - Underwear...what kind of question is that? Yes I wear them.  This is my favorite picture of myself in them:
I wish I still had these.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Are olives vegetables?  I hate those.  All of them.
W - What makes you run late: Bad planning.
X - X-Rays you've had done: Teeth, knees
Y - Yummy food you make: I don't know - John likes the Beef Stroganoff that I make.
Z - Zoo, favorite animal:  I have never really been to the zoo, and am not really a big zoo fan (sorry zoo lovers).  Outside I really like otters though, they are my favorite animal because they just know how to have a good time.

Mandy, where do you get this stuff? Too funny. I have always said you are one of the best bloggers out there because you can make the most mudane things funny and interesting.....

Just for the record, I am one of the left handed guys you have NOT dated.... just sayin...

Christi said...

I have a Queen bed also so you are not the only one out there. I love your Wonder woman underoos! I wish they made them for our size! I would so wear them again.

You-bring beer bottle, me with the human beat box thing going on, we could be stars!! Fun list of ABC's. I'm a shorty too! Too funny.

Unknown said...

I have so much to comment on! :)

1. I don't have a cali king and actually just found out what one was through the whole blog ABC thing!
2. You are so tiny! I am going to feel gigantic when I finally meet you!
3. Bailey is totally your kid. Nuff said
4. I think I have that same picture of myself as a kid. :)

RockStarTri said...

I like the guns in the "U" picture.

Molly said...

I am NINE inches taller than you! : )

A Prelude To... said...

ewwww...olives...yick. Me too! What are they? veggies? I'm not sure.

The Green Girl said...

H - Height: 5' 1.25" (yes, the .25 counts) but I act I am like 6'3"

You don't know how hard this made me laugh. Girl, I am so with you on this one. I'm 4' 10.5" but as far as I'm concerned, I'm the same height as my boyfriend - 6' 5".

Ironman By Thirty said...

First off, (not at 36 is at all old), but I thought you were like 29 or 30. You look young :)

Never miss an opportunity to post a picture of Bailey. Love it :)

At 5'1.25", you'd get lost in a California King :-P. We have a Queen too so you are not alone.

You totally need to find a wonder woman tri suit and rock at it IMLP in ### days. (You didn't provide a count today so I don't know the exact number) :) That would be the coolest thing ever!

Unknown said...

Response to K: yes Bailey counts!

Patrick Mahoney said...

we have g,n,a,r,l,e and y in common.

Unknown said...

That was by far one of my fav ABC's!!!

Queen here too and just like Colleen I had no idea what a California King was until this ABC thing. Actually googled it?

I love Tombstone too and have probably watched it like a 100 times.

Anonymous said...

I totally had those underroos!!!!!!!

Regina said...

I totally forgot about teeth x rays! And I'm with you on the underwear question, as in what kind of question is that?! Of course!

adena said...

Bailey looks like he's about to tell you something very important in that piture. You as wonderwoman, too cute!! (i hope it was wonderwoman, I'm not up on superheros too much).

Who cares if olives are vegetables, I don't like em either!

Unknown said...

HOw can you not like olives??? Also, my husband detests zoos, so we have never gone as a family.

Aimee said...

Yay! I love these posts!
That picture of you dressed as Wonder Women is priceless!! Ha ha!

Derek Hill said...

I just watched tombstone again last week!

Great Quotes!

Jon said...

Gah! Another olive hater!!! Good! More for me :)

I love how EVERY time you mention Caratunk, you have to insert "Population 60." It really does set the town apart from everywhere else in the country.

KovasP said...

Are you and Patrick really gnarley? I think the left handed guys are an attempt to complete yourself on a very deep physical level.

Anonymous said...

You can give me your olives! Shouldn't Bailey have a blog?


Looks like a Wonder Woman outfit to me. Flexing the guns??

Big Daddy Diesel said...

- I dont have a Cali King either

- Round up 5'2"

- I just learned bikes count as kids, you have 2, with one being a new born

Matty O said...

LOve your ABCs Thanks for sharing ;)

Our kids are our pups!!!

Can't wait to meet you in person, I hope that you don't feel short by me... 6'-1" :(

I am sending some more snow your way ok?

MissFit Island said...

I love the Wonder Woman Underoos. They weren't made until I was 15 and they didn't make them in my size. I was so sad because I wanted them so much.

My strange and uninteresting fact - Every manager I've had in my life is left handed. Supposedly it is a sign of intelligence.

Annie said...

Bailey absolutely counts!

DRog said...

ur totally 6'3



Chris K said...

Cute pic Wonder Woman.

I hate olives too.

5' 1.25" is cute if you ask me.

If I do the ABC thing, I'm gonna put Bailey as my fav Blog dog.

Val said...

I'm digging that otters are your favorite animal! Good call:)

Andy Rosebrook said...

Still have a Queen Sized bed here too. The King size just ate up all the space in the room. Population 60, wow, really a place where everyone knows your name.

My Life said...

Otters knowing how to have a good time... that made me laugh. :)

Black Knight said...

...and yes, Bailey counts!
