Tag, I'm It!

*Disclaimer: See my note in my comments section. I pieced this together over two night shifts during which I was feverish, with a head cold, and tired! And it shows! Need I say more? ;)

I've been tagged by Shellie, from Little But Loud blog. Shellie, if I knew how to make that link thingy to your name, I would. The blog address is It's a fun blog I really have enjoyed reading! Go check it out!

(1) You must post the rules on your blog before you answer the questions.

(2) You need to list one fact about yourself using each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name use your maiden name instead.

(3) When you are finished with your answers, you tag one person for each letter of your name.

Jane is my middle name. I'm glad it's not Elizabeth or something like that. So many letters, and a "z"... And to think I didn't used to like my middle name! :) Well, that was back when I was in elementary school! So, Jane should be pretty easy!

J-J-J-J....Java Monster is the first, and only, thing coming to mind. I love my coffee and anything remotely related to it. Java Monster is a coffee energy drink that my husband just introduced to me that is really, really good. It's also high in calories, cost kind of a lot, and you can't drink more than 3 in a day or you might run naked in the streets...or so my husband claims. (He said that some kid drank too many energy drinks and was found running naked in the streets in some news article he read. I would say that the reaction between his energy drink and antipsychotic meds was more at fault)

A.....Artistic? I would like to be artistic, anyway. Furthermore, only negative words beginning with the letter "A" are otherwise coming to mind (angry, aggressive, agitated..)

Nice? Nerdy? One wouldn't think this would be very hard but for some reason, I'm having a hard time even thinking of words beginning with these letters.

Energetic! I would like to think that I possess large amounts of energy. I think, though, that it actually is more like adrenaline-induced hyperactivity (that, or caffeine-induced from consuming more coffee in a day than water). The adrenaline would be from constant deadlines biting me in the behind....someone has a book report due; someone else has a Math Masters meeting after school and is supposed to be...oops, make that was supposed to be picked up by 3:30; this bill is/was due by...; whose wild child (well-child) was due by when? So, although I can secretly know it's probably not so much energy as it is panic-driven responses driven by what feels like a pack of hungry wolves nipping constantly at my heels, to keep it simple, I will just say I'm energetic! :)

Now, instead of tagging anyone, whoever reads this is tagged if they haven't done this one or aren't over-tagged lately. This is actually a fun and quick one!

Nice to always learn things about my fellow blogger buddies. :)

Let me just add that this post was pieced together over two nights shifts that (and I'm not kidding about this either) I went to sick with fever and severe head cold. By the time I woke up on Friday evening with a fever, due to this client's staffing circumstances, I knew there was no way I could be replaced. I'm very, very germ conscious at work. I wore a mask all nite whenever performing personal cares, washed my hands a million times those nights, and Lysol-sprayed everything before I left. :) I've worked with him long enough I knew he would be okay with that and he was!
