Meme, and a Couple Other Things

Wendy from Writes in the City tagged me with an A-Z meme, but before I begin I have to mention a dream I had last night.

It was a college setting and I joined Nathan Bransford and Jonathon Lyons for a cup of hot chocolate. There were a couple other scholarly types there, one of whom I'm convinced is a character from the book I'm reading (Love in the Time of Cholera), and the entire thing was really bizarre. We talked about our blogs, and Jonathon whipped out a printout of all the comments he's received in the past months when I mentioned I left a comment last week. And, since it was a dream, I drank my cocoa out of a coffee filter. *shrugs* I saw a picture of Jonathon yesterday so I'm assuming that's where this started.

Now onto the meme.


A-Attached or Single? Attached. Our two year anniversary is in August

B-Best Friend? Kris and Ibis (weird, I never noticed that with the letters)

C-Cake or Pie? I'll say pie because they don't make pie here

D-Day of Choice? One with a breeze

E-Essential Items? lipstick/chapstick, lotion, water. I need moisture at all times

F-Favorite Color? aqua/turquoisey blue

G-Gummy Bears or Worms? worms, I like to bite things and it's easier when it's more than half an inch long

H-Hometown? Spring Lake, Michigan

I-Indulgence? Nutella

J-January or July? Normally I'd go with everyone else and say July, but I really miss cold weather

K-Kids? not yet

L-Life isn’t complete without… celebrity gossip, as long as it's not super intrusive

M-Marriage Date? August 26, 2006

N-Number of Siblings? two

O-Oranges or Apples? apples

P-Phobias or Fears? small spaces, not being able to breathe

Q-Quote? "Life is not measured by the number of breathes you take, but by the moments that take your breath away." (ironic considering my P answer)

R-Reason to Smile? I'm finally losing weight

S-Superman or Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman, wish I still had those Underoos

T-Tag 5 people. No

V-Vegetables? Sweet potato

W-Worst Habit? interrupting others

X-Ray or Ultrasound? ultrasound, you don't have to wear a heavy apron and it's cool seeing your insides

Y-Your Favorite Food? seafood

Z-Zodiac Sign? Pisces


And finally, I recently bought several dresses. Squee!

I have a statement to make for each topic of the post:

Love In The Time Of Cholera is on my nightstand, waiting to be read. How crazy is that?

Your definitive "NO" for 'T' is hilarious.

I LOVE the blue dress!

Yet no comment on the dream? ;)

That is a strange coincidence on the book, especially since I bought it last November. It's taken awhile to get into it but now I like it. My mistake reading chicklet right before it.

I was going to explain that Wendy tagged everyone I know, but I didn't want to make her feel bad.

Thanks! I wore it last night. :D

OMG someone else who knows about Nutella!! I swear it's the snack of gods.

Melanie Avila said...

Aaron, you're not kidding! My lunch today was PB & Nutella. :)

I didn't buy it for a couple weeks and I think that's why I finally started losing weight, but my sanity wasn't worth the deprivation!

My comment about your dream is that you must spend entirely too much time online. And also, hello pot, I'm kettle.

Your new dresses are super cute!

Melanie Avila said...

LOL, very true. Thanks Wendy.

I love, love, LOVE Nutella! It's SO awesome! On bread, bananas, straight from the jar ... Nutella is the best.

Melanie Avila said...

Spy, it's the straight from the jar part that gets me into trouble! My husband eats it too so at least I know I didn't finish the jar on my own.

that dream is HILARIOUS! I wish agents would have coffee with me in my dreams!

Nathan was very sweet, trying to help me with my coffee filter.
