A - Always on time.
B - Battle. As in I battle anything and anyone when I am sure I am right.

D - Darlene. My name that I hated until I turned 28.
E - Eggs. Love them. My favorite go to protein food.
F - Freak. I get called this a lot for a lot of reasons.
G - Goofy. As in - Darlene you are so goofy! And I am. Really.

P - Pickles! My cat's alter ego.
Q - Quintessential.. a word I use often.

X - Xylophone - I played the xylophone in the 5th grade Christmas concert.
Y - Yak - I had a stuffed one with green fur when I was 8.
Z - Zippo. My other cats name. He is named after the song by Corrosion of Conformity... not the lighter.

Thanks to Little Miss Nerd Girl for this idea. Click the link and check out her ABC's.


  1. I just stumbled upon your blog a few minutes ago and read just because we share a name. Then I giggled because most of your alphabetical discription fits me to a T...well, except for the Pink Floyd. I'm more of a just plain Pink girl. Take it to the Limit was my favorite song back in the day and I still love it. My guess, however, is that I am much, much older than you are. I hope your life is as happy as mine is. Blog on... I'll be following...inconsistently at best, which is my "I" word since I am not a fan of ice cream either. ;-)

  2. Hi Darlene! Thanks for the follow. I love your ABC list. I'm never late either. If I win the lotto, I might open a dog rescue. We have 3 rescues already, and I dogsit my three grand-dogs off and on when needed. They're all rescues, too. I almost picked "Take It to the Limit" for my anniversary blog post because it was a top song in 1976. The Eagles are one of my hubby's favs. "Take It Easy" is his fav. Pink Floyd is superb. A couple Halloweens ago, my oldest daughter was a Pink Floyd. She wore all pink and had a name tag that said "Floyd!" What a fun post.

  3. Kelly, Darlene and Lyn... thank you so much for stopping by.. :)
