Fun With Lists (Part Drei) 01/11/06

I had a list thrown at me in my mail this morning. I do have a story, which I'll get to later, but I thought this list was pretty funny. So, enjoy, and please, feel free to use it as well. I have searched this list and found it on multiple blogs, so others have definitely done it first.
A is for age: A lady never tells her age. Wait...I'm a guy! Damn! 27.
B is for Booze of choice: Wine. White wine to be exact. You need names? Sigh. Toasted Head Chardonnay, Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc, and Conundrum White Table Wine. I need a glass. Excuse me.
C is for career: I'm a teacher. Yup. High school English teacher. I'm the one that you end up either loving or hating by the time you leave. I also do tech work, but that's another issue all together.
D is for your dog's name: No dog, folks. I like to travel, and that's hard with a dog. I have three cats, however. They would be Oscar, Sam, and Ulysses. Good luck trying to figure out where the names come from, folks. (Mmmm. Smells like a challenge.)
E is for essential items you use everyday: Hmm. How to answer this.... Pants? Hmm. Ok, Two bottles of water, a computer, a pen (usually purple), annnnd sarcastic wit. The last one is the most essential.
F is for favorite song at the moment: Right now? Hmm. Ok, there's two:
1. Overkill by Colin Hay (the acoustic version of the Men at Work tune.
2. Lovetown by Peter Gabriel.
G is for favorite games: Trivial Pursuit, The Tick Boardgame, Blackjack, and The Movies.
H is for hometown: New York, New York, it's a hell of a town! Though my parents now live in a small town in Connecticut now.
I is for instruments you play: Cello, then Bass Guitar.
J is for jam or jelly you like: Can I answer this with music? Yes? No? Hello?
K is for Kids: Not yet. I sure hope they look like my wife....
L is for last kiss: Hang on....2 seconds ago.
M is for most admired trait: You tell me. Hang on. "Honey...." She says my humor and my heart. I trust her.
N is for the name of your crush: My beautiful wife.
O is for overnight hospital stays: I had a concussion in high school and had to be observed. When I was seven, I had to have several teeth removed at once (some of which were located almost inside my jaw. I apparently did two things wrong that day:
1. I was told to count down from 20 when the anesthesia started. I managed to do it. Then I was told to go from 100 and made it to around 50. The doctors thought it was weird.
2. I was injected with a chemical to calm me down. It didn't work, and entertained the doctors. I'm told "Like mother, like son." Awesome.
P is for phobias: None really. Oh wait! Umm...uuhhhh. Nope.
Q is for quotes you like: "The reasonable man attempts to adapt himself to the world. The unreasonable man attempts to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
R is for biggest regret: I would say it was my first Ex, but she taught me a great deal about life.
S is for sweets of your choice: Twizzlers.
T is for the time you wake up:6:02 am CST. At least that's when the alarm goes off. Sometimes I'm in bed for it, most times I'm already up. I love insomnia.
U is for underwear: Boxers. Yup. I was briefs until high school, then I wised up.
V is for vegetable you love: Carrots. I love em (using love here folks). Broccoli too. Just started getting into asparagus. My sister once ate SO many carrots that she had an orange tint. That's awesome.
W is for worst habit: I'm really blunt, I like to joke around, and I have no problem telling people about their issues when I see them struggling with the same problems I used to have.
X is for x-rays you've had: Are we including MRI or CT scans? If so then the entire body. Mouth, knees, arms, legs, feet, head, etc.
Y is for yummy food you make: We cook a great deal. Mostly from Rachael Ray's books. Favorite dish would have to be what I made for my wife on our second date: Swiss Chicken with rice, carrots, and hot fudge cupcakes.
Z is for zodiac sign: Scorpio! Water sign, baby. Those of you who understand and/or believe in the zodiac will love this: I married a Sagittarius. Mull over that one for a while.

no, you certainly don't have a problem with it, but it's a good thing... most of the time. (even if people don't seem to always appreciate it) :)

Great list!!! Makes me think about how I would answer those questions.

Only problem. Most people now know too much about me.

Hi Leab! I've posted my alphabet answers about me here.

I've been reading your blog for several months now and am just now attempting a journal of my own. I don't know how long I'll do it, but I've really enjoyed yours!
