The Real Me ABC

I followed the formula for the first ABC post but the more I have been thinking about it the less I think it reveals about my true essence.  So I created a different one suing things that are more essential to who I am rather than what time it is or my last beverage choice.

A-Adult ADDish (If I see something shiny I am toast)
B-Bookwormish ( I read all the time, just not necessarily books)
C-Competitive (I don't mean to be, it just happens sometimes...OK nearly all the time.  I tell my Beloved Sister it is not a competition, as long as I'm winning.)
D-Delightfully Odd
E-Eventually (As in I will get it done eventually but I am easily distracted)
F-Friendly
G-Grateful (There is an abundance of things I am grateful for.)
H-Heavy (That's all I'm going to say about that)
I-Interested (I am bummed at how much I don't know and how much I will never have the time to learn)
J-Jobless (I used to be a SAHM but now the chicks have flown so I guess I am just a SAH)
K-Kind (I am very kind but I am not sweet)
L-Lazy (Gee that hurts to admit)
M-Moody (Sorry family!)
N- Non-touchy feely (I should be required to wear a Do Not Touch sign around my neck, but then the sign would touch my neck and that would begin some vicious scratch /itch cycle
O-Opinionated (if you don't believe me just ask what I think about anything)
P-Painted (Yes, I am one of those make-up women)
Q- Quirky
R-Rebellious (I just don't like being told what to do.)
S-Sarcastic
T-Tactile (I like things, fabrics, and food by feel first.  If it does not feel "right" I don't like it.)
U-Ungraceful (Can you say klutz)
V-Vocal (Yeah, I talk too much)
W-Wicked (When it comes to my sense of humor.  I promise I never use my powers for evil.)
X-Xxactly Stumped (Sorry I just can't think of an x adjective except xenophobic and I'm not that)
Y-Young (At heart)
Z-Zealous (Of things I am passionate about)

  1. Once again very interesting. Many of the adjectives I could have guest from reading your blog for a while, but this list brought things into sharper focus. But who knew you were a a painted woman? :)

    1. Makeup and opposable thumbs are the only think standing between me and animals. I wear it regularly so I don't scare dogs and small children.

  2. That's funny...I always say that I'm kind but no one would ever call me "sweet."

    1. Hmmmm, Jill. I am thinking this over and I will agree you are extraordinarily kind and considerate. But you have a wonderful slightly sarcastic edge that might keep some people from saying you are traditionally sweet. Personally I think kindness trumps sweetness, but no one ever says I am sweet, so maybe I am just jaded.

  3. Well except for the Letter "P" I would think I had written this about myself! Are we sure we weren't Siamese Twins separated at birth? lolz

    1. Maybe we are and your half was the half standing behind the door when the Clinique gene was handed out!

  4. I'm a SAH too. For some reason, I am too busy to get a job. I think I'm doing it all wrong.

    1. I justify it by declaring any salary I brought home would throw us into a ridiculious tax bracket so I am only a SAH to save us money.

  5. you sound a lot like me, except i pretty much never wear make up these days.

    The revised version of the list is much more insightful than the first!

  6. The first was just a formula, this one is actually more who I am. I don't wear makeup at home, but I don't leave home without it

  7. Good morning Anne, such a funny alphabet and so many fit me too. I especially like your D one. I would of been normal 75 years ago but now, I am just Odd :)
    Thanks for a smile

    1. I am not sure I would have ever fit the "normal" category, but at least I am not scary and function fairly well. Though I will never understand why someone can be in Home Depot and read the instructions on a product and not start tap dancing while singing "I Can DO That" from A Chorus Line.

  8. Love reading your list, Anne! Your personality shines in your responses. I felt like I could have wrote most of the answers myself. We'd get along swell!!!

    1. Thanks, Brandi! Since we live in neighboring states perhaps one day we can meet for coffee.

  9. I love reading blogs and am always taken back at how we are all the same. My abc's are the same. Now being a SAH like you I wonder how I ever pulled off working with kids. Lol

    1. I don't know how any mom works with kids, since they are a lot of work! It is funny how much more alike most of us are, or maybe we just gravitate to similar blogs
