Bits about me

My friend Dawn did this on her LJ and I liked it so I thought I'd do one.


A is for age: 56 and counting.

B is for beer of choice: Guinness. I agree with my friend Dawn.


C is for career right now: I can say author, I feel, as I’ve been paid for a story and have now had three stories accepted for publication. However, since I in no way am making a living at it, it isn’t really a career. I don’t have anything that makes a living except my dear husband.

D is for your dog's name: I don’t have a dog but my daughter has 4 boxers named Baby, Maggie, Big Pussy and Paulie Walnuts – I’ll borrow them for this.

E is for essential item you use everyday: My brain. Well, I use it most days. ;-)

F is for favourite TV program: NCIS, Castle, Ghost Hunters and others on Discovery and History channels.

G is for favourite game to watch: Don’t really have one.

H is for hometown: I was born in Ann Arbor, MI. I grew up in Dearborn, MI and lived there until I was 21.


I is for instruments you play: Fiddle, various flutes, baritone ukulele.


J is for favourite juice: Fresh apple cider – wish we had a place close by to get some. Other than that, cranberry juice.

K is for whose butt you'd like to be kicking: I’m not a pacifist, but I’m not really into the whole butt kicking thing.

L is for the last place you ate at: Out would be a small local café that makes the most light, awesome omelets I’ve ever had.

M is for marriage: Yes I am marriage-d. Have been for almost 35 years to the same marvelous guy.

N is for your name: Sandra

O is for overnight hospital stay: 27 years ago last April when I had my daughter. Before that was 32 years ago next month when I had my son.

P is for people you were with today: Oddly enough my whole immediate family except for oldest grandson.

Q is for what your best quality is: Creativity.

R is for what you're currently reading: The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York  by Deborah Blum

S is for your relationship status: Married.

T is for the time you woke up today:
About 6:30 AM

U is for type of underwear you have on: None, I’m in my jammies. And no, it’s not the middle of the day.  LOL

V is for favorite vegetable: I like lots of veggies. Favs are broccoli, cauliflower & Brussels sprouts

W is for worst habit: clutter. I’m nowhere near the hoarders that they are showing a lot on TV these days, but I am a clutter-er. Next would be putting my foot in my mouth.

X is for x-rays you've had: Ah . . . lots. Most recent would be some dental ones.

Y is for some yummies: Potato Chips are my main munchie, but I don’t have them that often any more because they are empty carbs (rolling my eyes) and the salt. Although, I have found some that aren’t as high in sodium.  For sweets it would be chocolate.

Z is for zodiac sign: Virgo. Though I’m near the cusp with Libra and I have qualities of both. Chinese zodiac I’m a horse.

I really do need to find somewhere to get some good cider along with a powdered cinnamon doughnut or two. That is just so autumn for me.

Tomorrow I'll be getting (and posting) a link to where the magazine with my very first accepted original story will be available for purchase. I don't really expect very many folks to buy it, but I do want to let them know it's there. :-D
