Fantastic post! I could not agree more with C & Q.

I have not heard of the A - Z thing. Thanks for this post. I needed a good read.

Julie said...

"Depends" for the underwear answer? You might want to re-word that =D

Marlene said...

Love that you have to include height in heels!

Can I come over for some of that macademia crusted chicken??

Treadmill = instrument. Love that!

Mike said...

That quote is said or heard at least once a day around here. I think I need to do this ABC thing.

racing dawn said...

love it.

diet coke? i had no idea....

and julie got you on the underwear thing... :)

i hate doing dishes...and so does everyone else in my house...so i always end up doing them...i need to learn to delegate better... :)

bobbi said...

Ha! My husband do the, "not here, or here, but right about HERE" thing all the time - LOVE Tommy Boy.

Kovas said...

Macadamia crusted chicken sounds good. "I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.
"

Carrie said...

This ABC post was an awesome look into the window of EMZ. I will have to try it too!

Jamoosh said...

Wait a darn minute! The only lawns in Arizona are on golf courses...

Katie said...

love.this. i gotta do it!

misszippy said...

I think I need that recipe (macadamia chicken).

Thanks for sharing your ABCs...awesome stuff.

Heather said...

de-fizzing the diet coke the night before? never heard of that! your pet peeve made me laugh! love this.

Jen said...

You are so funny! I love that you consider your treadmill an instrument! And yeah, that underwear answer was really good!

Stacey said...

I like diet Coke de-fizzed as well.

Laurie said...

Your chicken sounds soooo good. The Depends thing cracked me up.... thanks Julie!

I've been meaning to do this for a while, now I really think I have to jump on board.

Karine said...

Oh, thanks for the reminder about the macademia chicken recipe. Need to put that on the menu. You forgot to mention that not only do you de-fiz the diet coke, you also dilute it with water --NO ICE!

Rose said...

My trainer is always picking stray hairs off my back, because it bugs the crap out of him, too. Stupid shedding.

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

I love that you play your treadmill and consider your shoes part of your height! heehee

I wish I would have thought of using Hubbs' age...he is younger than me.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I wanna know the other nicknames!! :) We are meant to be friends--TOMMY BOY is the best!! "That's a pretty girl down there.What is your favorite little Rascal? Is it Alfalfa or Spanky?!"

Patrick Mahoney said...

This explains a lot.

Pam said...

Ew, a flat diet coke for breakfast?! Why do you defizz it the night before? lol The fizz is the best part! Makes me hiccup every time.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I love these types of post

Now the smurf thing makes sense

Aron said...

Melissa Cunningham said...

Jill said...

No corn? Be still my Iowa heart!!

But the rest made me smile! :)

Petraruns said...

You crack me up girlfriend. Off to find Julie's underwear comment now.

Jason said...

It doesn't hurt here or here but riiiighht here.....I don't see anything...

Love that movie.

Adrienne said...

de-fizzed diet coke? Interesting. Fun post.

She said I need a goal said...

Haha, woot, dude, yay, yuck?, me too, me too, I knew it, nice, I may need you, yeehaw, jealous, awww, love IT, ouch, ditto (and ew), hahaha, me too, wow, yikes, tmi, I love corn!, you love shoes, owch, yummy and hahahahah

and it was cheques instead of a superhero shirt. Better be tonight or I'm going to the border looking for people wearing MY shirt!!

Jim ... 50after40 said...

I love zoo pigeons! Much more native than the ones in the park.

Michelle said...

Love these ABCs posts! I'm so with you on the dishes and hair on people's backs...makes me crazy!

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

That solves that question. I am keeping the diet Pepsi as part of my breakfast. If I can do ANYTHING and turn out as awesome as you, I will do it. And I think you need to grab your tape measure. 5'9"? Standing downhill, maybe. You have GOT to be 5'10".

Caroline said...

I did that also today!
I love these posts fun to read!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

These are funny. Nice job.

RoseRunner said...

Never heard of that animal.

And trampoline injury? Ouch!!

btw, what do you do with all that room on your bed? CA Kings are like islands!

Caratunk Girl said...

Love these, they are so fun!

Emz said...

Roserunner. I wish. Ever slept with a man who is 6'8"?!
I need my own island!

Luke said...

Fun post. I have been thinking about doing it myself. Maybe if I do it the two followers I lost today will come back.

Nelly said...

I swear I've seen that Tommy Boy quote on another blog, that movie is hilarious!

MCM Mama said...

Hilarious! Love Julie's comment. ;o)

Molly said...

I also like, "I pet it, and I massage it....You're naughty! you're my naughty pet! and then I KILL IT!!"

Aimee said...

Awesome ABC post! These are so fun! I'm going to have to jump on the ABC bandwagon too!

LB said...

That chicken sounds delsih....can I come to your house for dinner?

Lindsay and James Cotter said...

I think I'm the only one that hasn't done this. Will need too soon. Its too fun!
oh tommy boy, I love thee!
LC

Colleen said...

Aw, love your list! Glad that I'm not the only one to start my day with a diet coke!

And okay, you've convinced me that I need to look into AZ as my next home! :)

Johann said...

I'm enjoying reading all the ABC posts and should probably do one some day. I'm with you on the dishes, I even enjoy ironing but dishes never. I'm also one for green and nicknames...I have more I won't share than I will share. I hate all diet drinks and rather run a bit more.

Laura said...

heels, an awesome sounding chicken dish and Tommy Boy in one post.
(love)
:)

64 CLASSIC said...

6'1 in heels!! Thats intimidating!! No wonder the PITA is 6'8!!

Awesome post.

Matty O said...

we have a california king... H still wants a bigger bed. She is only happy when I am out plowing and she has the thing to herself LOL.

Mase is my BUDDY! LOVE. HIM!

Thanks for sharing :)

Evolving Through Running said...

Love the fact that you start your day off with a defizzed Diet Coke. Makes me feel a little less badly about stealing some of my kids' Apple Jacks to start the day. I want to be part of the oatmeal, flax, healthy breakfast team, but I just can't seem to make it happen.
