Alphabet Soup... Joanne style!

Jumping on the meme bandwagon... here we go!

34. For awhile I was telling everyone I was 35. I was confused. Diabetes made me that way.

Bed size: Queen... I am longing for a King, but can't bring myself to throw down the $$$ for it. But I need my space when I sleep, so don't even think about trying to snuggle me (not sure who I'm talking to here).

Chore you dislike: Ummm, all of them?

Dogs: I've had dogs since I was 4 or 5; first there was Muffin, who gave birth to a litter and we kept Pookie. When Pookie passed on, we got Sage. Then Fred and I had A.Jacks (the A stood for Artemis), and when she died, we got Seven. Who is a neurotic mess who sheds everywhere. Aren't you glad you now know my history of dogs?

Essential start to your day: Sleep?

Favorite color: Purple. And black.

Gold or silver: Don't really care, the only jewelry I wear is my wedding ring and engagement ring. Which are gold.

Height: 5 ft. 7. But I think I'm shrinking.

Instruments you play(ed): Sax-a-ma-phone and guitar. And I totally rock the cow bell, baby!

Job title: Queen of the universe

Kids: Two lovely littles. One lady and one lad. That was fun.

Live: Unfortunately in Texas. Before that, San Francisco (heeellooo Meri!). Before that, Vancouver (the Canadian one). And when I was just a wee babe; Montreal.

Mom’s name: Cheryl

Nicknames: Joey, Jo, Joner, spitfire, smoking Jo (nope, never have smoked), Jo-Jo's Psychic Alliance, The Leather Weather Girl. When you work in radio, you acquire a lot of nicknames.

Overnight hospital stays: 7. 3 leg surgeries, 1 jaw surgery, 2 babies (c-sections), and one pregnancy related (went into early labour with Elise).

Pet Peeves: Stupid people. Temperatures above 90 degrees. Government bureaucracy. People who have an excuse for everything. Being late. Bad drivers. Bad customer service. Don't I sound like sunshine and roses?

Quote from a movie: Don't get saucy with me Bernaise.

Righty or Lefty: Righty . . . mostly. I can do some stuff left-handed.

Siblings: Two brothers; one older, one younger. That makes me the (gasp) overlooked middle child. Explains so much, doesn't it?

Time you wake up: When the wee ones make me.

Underwear: Why not?

Vegetables you don’t like: Maybe brussel sprouts. Is that cliche?

What makes you run late: Other people. Traffic lights. Speed limits.

X-Rays you’ve had: Seriously? Probably in the 100s. I'm not kidding.

Yummy food you make: Cheese fondue. Yuuum!

Zoo animal favorite: Non smelly ones.


  1. LOL - "Non smelly ones" Me too

  2. Hehe...I forget how old I am too, REALLY!

  3. loved learning more about you! Jo Jo's psychic Alliance is quite possibly THE best nickname I have ever it! lol

  4. For defs separated at birth!! Well, a few years off, and in another country, but who's keeping track of facts here?!?!
    I'll keep in mind that you don't like to know, for those times that I sneak into bed with you!! ;)
    Love you, smoking Jo!!

  5. Me too on the sax and the COW BELL baby!!! AND...Montreal is close to us...move back there! It doesn't get as hot as TX.

    And, what the heck happened to your leg? Between the hospital and the x-rays, I am assuming it was something big.

  6. smokin' Jo, that's a good one!
    You are such a fun gal, you'll have to let me know when you're in Vancouver (the Canada one) next...a meet up is a must!

  7. Oh and "Radio" work? Seriously?

  8. Oh my gosh I'm cracking up at so many of your answers! I never remember how old I am either...guess that says it all.

  9. The Leatheer Weatheer Girl! I love it!!! :)

  10. I love these! Get to know more about my friends in my phone lol

    You're awesome!

  11. The Leather Weather Girl??? That sounds like a good topic for your next post ;)

  12. You worked in radio?! We need to hear your voice, Missy!

    And, I want you and Reyna to have a cowbell playing contest. That would be soooooo awschum ;)

  13. For some reason when I was about 26, I could not remember how old I was...kept having to ask my hubs who is only a couple weeks older than me....and that was BEFORE D entered the picture!
    Anyhow, love ya!
