26 Things Thursday

I was perusing a new blog I read and came across this. I wish that blog was a blogger blog and not a wordpress blog but oh well. Anyway, Melie's blog is cool so do follow along.

She posted this and I don't know, just had to do it I guess.

26 things about me in alphabetical order:

Bed size: We have a California King. It's an enormous bed and we love it
Chore you hate: I'm not a lawn guy
Dogs: Two small dogs, four pounds apiece. I'm not really a dog guy either
Essential start to your day: I usually chug some water very early
Favorite color: Blue
Gold or Silver: Silver
Height: 5-foot-10
Instruments you play: I took band class and played saxophone in fifth grade. I wish I would have kept at it
Job title: Freelance journalist
Kids: My reasons for existing - Yvonne and Kennedy
Live: Riverside, Calif.
Mom’s name: Raquel
Nicknames: LB. A friend of mine once called me Luis the Beast since they rhyme. I liked that but it didn't stick.
Overnight hospital stays: I was about four and got a really bad fever. I remember taking an ice bath. I don't know if I was in the hospital overnight but I'm pretty sure I was.
Pet peeve: Inconsiderate drivers will make me go from zero to nuclear in less than a second
Quote from a movie: I. Love. Movie. Quotes. I quote Pulp Fiction a lot but I also like to quote Scent of a Woman. Okay, I'll throw this one out now: "Outta order... I'll show you outta order. If I was the man I was five years ago, I'd take a FLAMETHROWER to this place. Outta order. Who the hell you think you're talkin' to?"
Right- or left-handed: Righty. My older brother is a southpaw
Siblings: Three brothers
Time you wake up: 4:45 a.m. (boo!)
Underwear: Boxer briefs
Vegetables you dislike: Not a beet guy, and as much as I hate to admit this, not an avocado guy either
What makes you run late: Sometimes........ my...........daughters..........take...... .....forever.... ......ready.........they...... ...can.......
X-Rays you’ve had: At the dentist on more than one occasion; once an x-ray showed a nerve that had burst and was causing me the worst pain I've ever felt in my life; had my wisdom teeth removed a few days later and all was right in the world
Yummy food you make: I cook. Oh yeah, I cook. The girls love it when I make Chicken Fingers, really just chicken breasts that I pound very thin, dredge in flour/egg/bread crumbs, cook in some oil (peanut if you got it) and slice into thin strips. I serve it (for the girls anyway) with a mixture of mayo and ketchup. Mrs. LB likes Bacon Tomato Pasta I make but my favorite dish to make is Orange Chicken. Dang, it's been too long since I made Orange Chicken... October was the last time. What's wrong with me?
Zoo favorite animal: Snakes. Deep down inside, I'm a snake guy :)

Well, that was fun. If you want to play along, feel free.

thank you for the shout out! :-) Snake is an interesting choice. In many cultures it is a sign of renaissance and protection. Could be appropriate since you totally reinvented yourself. Don't you just love it when I get all deep and philosophical all of a sudden? :-P

I have an paralyzing phobia of snakes.

I'm with you on the beets - completely. One of the most disgusting things on the planet. Love your job - totally cool!

I don't know if I'd realized we're the same age.

I love posts like this, it's always fun to find out something new about my blogging buddies.

Movie quotes - we are obsessed with movie quotes around here. City Slickers is a favorite, as is A Few Good Men. "You can't handle the truth!"

I would play along, but I'm not sure there's anything left about me that I haven't shared and that would be of interest to anyone.
