Alphabet Goop

Remind me to tell y'all about things I've been meaning to tell y'all, but never have had the combination of a computer, time, and inspiration (or is it memory?) at my fingertips at the same time in the last week. Exciting things like GAP and flags, conquering mountains (sorta) and rants. Buttfour now, that'll have to wait. I've been tagged. I like me a good game of tag, especially with a great big pile of people at the Castle Park (officially Rotary park or some such, but with a giant wooden play structure with bridges and tubes and towers and creative use of truck tires). Since I'm It, and the goal of a good It is to quickly make someone else It, here goes: A - Attached or Single? Animated. It begins with A, so let's leave it at that. B - Best Friend: I don't rank 'em that way. I'm a collector of friends. Lots more valuable and interesting than philately. Some are pretty to look at, some are for taking along into battle, some are for trusting with the keys to the Viper. Or the dungeon. None are expendable. C - Cake or Pie: Ice cream cake. Chocolate. D - Drink of Choice: Water, averaging over 3L/ workday. Still chubby, so what they say about it making you lose weight is in question. E - Essential Item: Deodorant. Smelly people are not taken seriously. F - Favorite Color: Blue. No, yelloAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHRRRRGGH! G - Gummi Bears or Worms? Ew. Fork over some chocolate, preferably truffles. H - Hometown: Grand Rapids Michigan, home of the Remington 12-Gage Shotgun (according to Bruce Campbell anyway...) Furniture city, they call it. Has a river. And restaurants, and churches. Buncha people too. I - Indulgence: Bourbon. And chocolate. Not usually at the same time. J - January or February: January. February is when winter starts to get old. K - Kids: Teenagers. Love 'em. Fascinating creatures, creative and smart, always surprising. L - Life is incomplete without: Oxygen. M - Marriage Date: 3-10-90 N - Number of Siblings: 2 or 4, depending on which version you've got. 2 younger sisters, both in Michigan. One older brother in PA, and another sister I've never met. O - Oranges or Apples? Oranges. Citrus makes me happy. P - Phobias/Fears: None really, but spiders come in pretty close. I made out with an earwig once, that was icky. Never want to do THAT again. Q - Favorite Quote: Oh geez, there are too many favorites. I'm going with 'Better to be silent and thought an idiot, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." Attributed to Solomon, Ben Franklin, and Abe Lincoln. R - Reasons to smile: Healthy, happy, employed, and surrounded by people to love who also love me. S - Season: Fall for bonfires and sweatshirts and leaves and cider, beauty and change and snuggly blankets. T- Tag Three: Short & sweet: Tiff, AC, Stew U - Unknown Fact About Me: If I tell you, wouldn't it then change into a known fact? This is a self-defeating question. I'll never be able to stop answering it, thereby laying bare the very fabric of my soul. Which, if you look really closely, is kinda gross. But, in the continuing spirit of playing along, heregoes: I don't have a TV, or a home phone. And I don't miss either. V - Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Neither. I leave oppression to others, but I am a firm supporter of PETA (People for the Eating of Tasty Animals). W - Worst Habit: Not finishing things. X - X-rays or Ultrasounds? Y - Your Favorite Foods: Z- Zodiac:
