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. Damn...now 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.
