Robin tagged me and I'm glad. Here's me, from A to Z.
A - Attached or single? Too attached to too many singles to be attached.
B - Best friend? None. Or many.
C - Cake or pie? Pie. Razzleberry pie from Marie Calendars to be specific.
D - Day of choice? Saturday I guess.
E - Essential item? Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum for my hair. For such a low-maintenance personality I sure do have a high-maintenance head.
F - Favorite color? Most any blue.
G - Gummy bears or worms? Worms. If I suck on them carefully enough I can make them skinny enough to tie in a knot using only my tongue. If there are gummy worms in the vicinity and I'm making grotesque faces at you, that's probably what's going on.
H - Hometown? The Rose Park area of Salt Lake for the first 13 years of my life, then West Valley for the rest. I know my way around the humble parts of the valley.
I - Indulgences? Cheese fries. So good, but so bad.
J - January or July? July, but that's a tough one because I hate the dead of winter only slightly more than I hate the heat of summer.
K - Kids? After studying them in school and working with them at work, I'm excited to have my own to mess with.
L - Life isn't complete without? Humor. I laugh a lot more than I probably should.
M - Marriage date? We'll see.
N - Number of brothers and sisters? An older brother and a younger brother. I'm the middle child AND the only girl, which explains a couple of my complexes.
O - Oranges or apples? Oranges. My love for citrus is due to serving a mission in AZ where the orange, lemon, and grapefruit trees abound.
P - Phobias or fears? Disappointing and/or inconveniencing people, making phone calls, and bees.
Q - Quote? "Oh if life were made of moments, even now and then a bad one! But if life were only moments, then you'd never know you've had one." - Baker's Wife, Into the Woods (by lyrical genius Stephen Sondheim).
R - Reason to smile? I no longer work for someone I don't respect.
S - Season of choice? Fall.
T - Tag six: Whoever thinks this is fun. Six of you.
U - Unknown fact about me? If it were socially acceptable for white girls to rap, I think I would like to try.
V - Vegetable? Sugar snap peas, especially in a stir fry.
W - Worst habit? Letting people take advantage of me.
X - X-ray or ultrasound? I don't even understand why this is a choice I'd have to make. That tells you how much I know about medicine.
Y - Your favorite food? Shredded chicken salad from Costa Vida.
Z - Zodiac sign? Sagittarius. Freedom-loving, jovial, restless, honest to a fault.

My house was full of people getting "jiggy" wit' it.
My road trip was wonderfully relaxing. I'm now at home using my unemployment time to get other things done that have been waiting their turn for months. It's been nice for the last couple of days, but I'm sure it'll get old soon. I have a good lead on a job with United Way (thanks, Bonny!) so we'll see if that pans out.

I'm blogging from a comfortable hotel bed in St. George on my way to California for a few days. After the long wet winter I'm looking forward to the sun and the warmth.
I survived the balloon-making event, thanks to a balloon-making friend more talented than I. She was only stumped when a kid requested a dragon. But, she did manage to whip up an octopus on command. Pretty impressive. And though I tried to bid farewell to my job and my boss, thanks to her irresponsible ways they still haven't hired someone to replace me yet. So I'll be back in to finish some things and train the poor person who replaces me.
I have some funny pictures that I'll post later. I just thought I'd let you know I survived the week.
