Image from http://www.alphabetbooks.com/abc.htm. If I were teaching kindergarten, I'd spend more time there. Great illustrations. Check out the partridge in a pear tree under 'Christmas'. Wow... while looking for an alphabet image, I stumbled across this:
Actually, I was looking for a melting alphabet. That would be appropriate. It's hot here. No. It's not hot. It's HOT. I don't do heat well. Yuck. Luckily, my noon student is on vacation and I only have the late afternoon until 10:30pm teaching stint. Poor Tat is out there in the heat.
A - Area: Concrete jungle aka São Paulo
B - Broken Bones: Right baby finger metacarpal, left shin (have an attractive ding there) and left knee.
C - Camera: Canon Rebel
D - Dance: Even jelly wouldn't dance in this heat. Saturday late night fling-your-body-around-when-we-have-enough-energy fun with Tat, yes. Doubt any sane person would call it dancing though.
E - Exercise: See above dance response. Oh I do try other forms of exercise too, when energy levels and time permits.
F - Flavour: Y'know they put chillies into booze here and apparently it's sweet? Next flavour to try if I can pluck up the courage.
G - God: God as in a title? Or god as in.... everyone has one.
H - Height: 5'7 Average in everything. That's me.
I - Instruments you play: Um... attempted the trumpet because it looked cool. Desperately wanted to play the piano. Can pound out a version of Somewhere over the rainbow... the first line anyway.
J - Jobs: statistician of sorts and considering my woeful abuse of anything resembling a number, that was a Bad job; seamstress; upholsterer; sales lady, secretary, receptionist, teacher, jill-of-all-trades
K - Kid(s): "Children!" My most often used expression when Jurgis and Tat are around and misbehaving.
L - Living arrangements: A typically Brazilian, very narrow house with a strip going up the side that the dogs use as a race track.
M - Mom's name: Annetjie
N - Nicknames: Corrie (vile), Có (Brazilians like to use the first two letters as a nickname), Tint (of course), Chicken (don't ask), and a few very unflattering high school nicknames.
O - Owies: Right now? This minute? None *is grateful*
P - Pet Peeve: I have a list. Litterbugs! Inconsiderate people.
Q - Quiet: I crave quiet. I've forgotten what it sounds like.
R- Right or left handed: Right
S - Siblings: 2 brothers, 1 sister
T - Time you wake up: It varies between 4:30am and 9:30am depending on how early I'm teaching or how late I was teaching the night before.
U- Underwear: Cotton (can't help but wonder why everyone always wants to know that in these quiz things)
V - Vegetable you dislike: Okra. *shudder* <<<< yes!! Other than that, I love all veggies.
W - Ways you run late: Procrastination. Nuff said.
X - X-rays you've had: teeth, hand/wrist, spine
Y - Yummy thing you make to eat: I'll have to ask the family. Jurgis is napping and Tat is out teaching. I rather like my mac 'n cheese. Oh and desserts... and potatoes au gratin... and rice salad. Ok, it was a stupid question.
Z - Zoo: My house on a good day : )
