So after been sick and catching up on blog reading, I first head over to Shameka's blog and of course she tagged me with this Meme:
ACCENT: While I have lived all over with my father being an IBM'er, I predomintaley lived in North Carolina. I had a southern accent when I first moved to NYC 11 years ago. I never picked up a NY accent, with the exception of a couple of words, and I lost my real southern accent. However, when I go home and visit or talk to someone with a strong accent, mine tends to come back out.
BREAKFAST OR NO BREAKFAST: Gotta start the day with breakfast. If I don't, I don't want to be around me.
CHORE I DON'T CARE FOR: Laundry. I hate having to lug everything to a laundrymat every week, no matter the weather conditions.
DOG OR CAT: I grew up with both. When I was married we had a slew of dogs. I wouldn't mind having a cat now.
ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: Cell phone and computer.
FAVORITE COLOGNE: I'm allergic to most perfume's and cologne's.
GOLD OR SILVER: Grew up wearing gold jewelry but now prefer silver.
HANDBAG I CARRY MOST OFTEN: Well living in the city and having to take public transportation everywhere, I carry my backpack most often. It can carry my running gear and everthing else I need for the day. When I go out, I generally grab my little black shoulder bag.
INSOMNIA: Only have insomia when I have something pressing on my mind or I am really hot.

QUOTE: "To Have Loved and Lost Is Better Than To Not Have Loved At All"
REASON TO SMILE: I am alive and healthy.
SIBLINGS: 4 sisters and 1 brother. All older.
TIME I WAKE UP: Alarm goes off at 4:30am. Got to be at work for 6am.
UNUSUAL SKILL OR TALENT: Fast Reader, Fast Knitter. Do those count as talents? Don't have any unusual skills that I can think of. I am just me!
VEGETABLE I REFUSE TO EAT: Brussel Sprouts.
WORST HABIT: Biting my fingernails when one is snagged and I don't have a clipper or nail file on hand.
