TMI: 26 Things About Me #Blogfest

Debbie Doglady is hosting a Blogfest over on her blog http://thedogladysden.com/tmi-26-things-about-me-blogfest/




where we can share these 26 questions and learn a bit more about each other. 

She has a Linky set up that is open for a month should you care to join in on the fun and want to share your post.

Here are my questions and answers. Some answers were sad and some were silly, but all in good fun, right?

I roll up my sleeves and giggle with glee
As I fill in the 26 things about me,
Should I 
make stuff up or tell it straight?
Just hurry up, Cathy. It's getting late!

Will anyone care about this fluff?
Does anyone even read this stuff?

It's good for a laugh and all in fun
I promise to read yours if you do one!
So here I go without further adieu
My 26 things about me for you!


A Age 56 (December 21, 1959)

B Biggest fear - losing my family in a tragic way 

C Current time Mid morning, almost noon and I’m being lazy lolling about in pjs. Hey, it’s Saturday!

D Drink you last had – COFFFEEEEEEEE!

E Every day starts with COFFFFEEEEEEE!

F Favourite Song – I don’t really have one. I like so many, how could I possibly pick just one? I love whatever we’re singing in choir or whatever pieces I’m playing on the flute with my harpist friend. I like some band stuff we do, too, but am growing tired of some of them since we’ve played them to death.

G Ghosts – Are they real? I don’t think so but don’t know for sure. Some things defy explanation.

H Hometown – Don’t really have one since I was a military kid. I guess I could call Ottawa my hometown now after 29 years of living here.

I In love with – my family, my pets, my birdies and furry friends, my camera and computer for being my devices for self expression

J Jealous of – Those who seem to have it all together, seem confident and seem so organized. Wish I was more like that.

K Killed someone – Only in my imagination. HONEST!

L Last time you cried – When my mom died. I still get moments of intense sadness that wash over me at times with the realization that I will never see or talk to her again. Sure miss her. Even though I knew time was growing short, it still didn’t make it any easier losing her so suddenly last November when she had a stroke that ended her life.

M Middle Name – Edith after my father’s mother

N Number of siblings – One younger brother

O One wish – that there was more peace and stability in the world and less hatred and poverty.

P Person you last called. I’m not a phone person but I did call my dad this morning just to chat as sometimes it’s good to hear a person’s voice. Since my dad is alone now, I do worry about him and it’s reassuring to talk on the phone.

Q Question you’re always asked. Do you have a sister? No, I don’t. Do I have that kind of a face or what?

R Reason to smile – My family, my cats, my dog, my beautiful birds and furry friends, my music, my friends online and off

S Sounds that annoy you – The cats fighting in the middle of the night, Daisy has a screech that could peel paint. Terrifying at 3am. Oh, and Leaf blowers – what a stupid and useless contraption that isn’t good for the environment. Use a rake, why don’t you?

T Time you woke up.  6:30 am. I usually get up at 5:30 and am a real morning person.

U Underwear colour – Geez – get personal why don’t you? A lovely grey white from hard water sprinkled with blue flowers.

V Vacation Destination – Favourite so far – Our trip to Germany this past March was wonderful Wish List – Australia and New Zealand before I’m too old to travel that far.

W Worst Habit – Negativity, self doubt and Procrastination. I have to constantly work on these things that seem to constantly plague me.

X Xrays you last had. For my back molar where I had a root canal and then a crown put on. I am sure I helped the dentist put their kids through university after all that expense.

Y Your Favourite Food – Chocolate, Chicken and Coffee – The three Cs

Z Zodiac Sign – Saggitarius – I am on December 21st so have even been called a Capricorn sometimes. Watch out! I have a bow and arrow! Zing!

  1. COFFEEEEE! Yes, indeed. ☺ Your poem was a fun added bonus. Yes, people do read this fluff, all the time. I think it's human nature to be curious about others. Thanks for participating and have a good weekend.

  3. This is such a fun post, Cathy. Got to know a bit about you too! I think I should take this up, considering the drought on my blog! I am a Saggi too and we are separated by just a day... it's Dec 20th for me :)

  7. You have 'coffee' addiction too? Damn. I always thought you were a tea person. Perhaps because of the comments on 'Shailaja's' tea statuses on Facebook' :D
    Lovely to know a bit more about you, Cat!

    1. I love tea almost as much as coffee but it doesn't give me the kickstart I need in the morning so coffee it is! Thanks for the nice comment, Sid.

    1. I daydream about going to Australia and NZ to visit friends and really hope I make it a reality for my 60th birthday maybe which is 3 years away. Something to dream about. I did go to England for my 50th and visit FB friends back in 2009. Would love to visit you, too, Raj. I'll watch you do all your yoga moves but don't expect me to join in. My body is not a pretzel like yours!!

  11. Love your answers, Cathy! "a screech that could peel paint" — LOL :D "Grey-white from hard water" — another (very loud) LOL. And I'm with you on the leaf blowers... When did we (as a society) get so freakin' lazy, man? I love these Q&A hops... It's not so much the actual questions, or even the actual information shared, but the way we choose to answer that I find reveals the essence of a person. And you, Cathy, sound like someone I'd love to know :) So glad you joined Debbie's challenge!

  13. COFFEEEEE! I'm with you on this one! Got to have my daily dose! Yes, the pain of losing a parent never goes away. It does get easier with time, but I still think about my mum every day. Glad you have family around you too! Loved learning about you. Yes, I took part as well. Hope you can visit me and learn some things about me too! :-)

  15. Both my parents passed within a few months of each other, and it is not an experience I recommend. Enjoy all the time you can with your Dad! Sadly, we realize all too late in life that time is the most precious thing we have.

    1. How sad to hear how you lost both parents in such a short time period. My heart goes out to you. I agree with you that it comes so late to realize just how precious our time is. Oh, how I wish I could get back that wasted time of youth. Thanks for your comment.
