Alphabet Soup

A- Available or Single – Nope. I’m sorry, my brother, but you will have to get your own.

B- Best Friends – Justin and Joe, who I never see any more.

C- Cake or Pie – Chocolate Raspberry torte from Sweet Indulgence… or cheesecake… or a good apple pie… although blueberry is nice too. But I’m really not much of a dessert person.

(I was going to provide a link to Sweet Indulgence here, but frankly their website looks like ass. C'mon, it's 2007. There's no excuse for that. No link for you!)

D – Drink of Choice – Lemonade, as long as it’s real. That powdered crap tastes as much like lemons as Pledge does. When it comes to alcohol, I’ll have a good beer, thanks.

E- Essential Item – Try to take away my Mac and you die.

F- Favourite Colour – Black. Everything should come with a matte black option.

G- Gummi Bears or Worms – Da Bears.

H- Hometown – Charleston, Illinois. In case you were thinking of visiting, don’t bother. It sucks. I did my time and got the hell out.

I- Indulgence – Cappuccino, although I don’t indulge it nearly often enough. In my wallet I have one credit card, one ATM card, and a debit card from my local coffee shop.

J- January or February – January. You’ve made it through the holidays and have a bit of a breather before the winter doldrums really set in. February just sucks.

K- Kids – Two. One of each. Teenagers. Oy.

L- Life is incomplete without – Fun. You’ve got one shot at this, and then you’re done, so you had better have fun while you’re doing it.

M- Marriage Date – Late May, in the Walled Garden at Allerton.

N- Number of Siblings? – Three: one brother, two sisters. I’m the baby.

O- Oranges or Apples? – Apple.

P- Phobias/Fears – About the only one that I haven’t overcome is needles. I still have to look away when I get a shot.

Q- Favourite Quote – “The sky over the port was the color of a television set tuned to a dead channel.” – William Gibson

I think it’s really evocative, and (as I’ve mentioned before) I love that it now means exactly the opposite of what it meant when it was written.

R- Reasons to smile – A well-struck goal, friends, and a weekend without responsibilities.

S- Season – Fall suits my temperament best, but I hate them all when I’m in them. I should move to San Diego where they don’t have seasons.

T- Tag 3 PeopleFlannery, Dale, and Beckeye.

U- Unknown Fact About Me – I hate talking on the phone.

V- Vegetable You Hate – Zucchini. Did you know that zucchini is latin for “Why did I grow this again?”

W- Worst Habit – I have no bad habits. They’re endearing. No? If I have to pick one it would be procrastination.

X- X-rays You've Had – Pretty much all of them. Like Johnny, I was a pretty rough and tumble kid, but I probably got most of them when I was in a pretty serious car accident in Jr. High.

Y- Your Favourite Foods – The spicier the better. I love a good curry. I also like sushi.

Z- Zodiac
– Gemini

Oh Alright, I'll play along. Anything for a dark-haired Smirky Smirkenson. But it may have to wait until after the Idol recap/results. Just remind me, because I'm a scatterbrain.

Flannery Alden said...

Ooooh! I'm a Gemini too!

I'll take your quiz...and so will I!

Johnny Yen said...

I haven't gotten around to procrastinating yet.

Dale said...

I'm going to do it I can almost promise you. Can I just cut and paste your fun answers?

deadspot said...

I'll have to keep that in mind, Beckeye.

Yay! I'll read them both, Flanya. Twice.

It can probably wait until tomorrow, Johnny.

Knock yourself out, Carlos.

Turnbaby said...

Oh My--it's a Gemini convention *giggling*

deadspot said...

Well, we're twins, so there are twice as many of us. Right?
