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