another one of those A-to-Z thingees
..wherein I participate in the kind of game that keeps the regular bloggers blogging up a storm and drags the very-occasional-bloggers back to blog on their blogs now and again. Blaaaaaaaahg!!
I actually have a real post welling up in me that I might get out tonight… political convention season usually gets me ready to rant a bit.
A – Attached or single: Attached… see here.
B – Best Friend: I’d have to be purty dang lame not to list my wife here. Besides, she’s, like, groovy.
C – Cake or Pie: I haven’t heard any albums by “Pie” â€” is this a real band? â€” so I’ll have to go with Cake here.
D – Day of the Week: Thursday; I like anticipation.
E – Essential Item: Stringed instruments.
F – Favorite Color: Blue.
G – Gummy Bears or Worms: it’s Gummy Venus de Milo or nothing for a Simpsons freak like me.
H – Home town: [redacted, just in case indentity theives are aggregating A-to-Z posts for helpful details]
I – Indulgences: Sweets of all kinds. I never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like.
J – January or July? While in Texas, January, I guess. Probably the other way ’round when I lived in New York.
K – Kids: Two of them, currently 3.5 and 17 months â€” want to babysit? Please?

M – Marriage Date: [redacted; see H]
N – Number of Siblings: one biological, one in-law.
O – Oranges or Apples: Oranges, oranges, oranges and graphic design. [$1 to the first person besides my wife to correctly name that Web history reference.]
P – Phobias or Fears: Phobias and Fears themselves, thanks mainly to that famous FDR quote.
[I should point out here that the post with which Sarah tagged me for this activity is missing Q, R, and S. So I get to skip ’em too.]
U – Unknown fact about me: I’ve won a pinball tournament.
V – Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animal: Carnivore all the way.
W – Worst Habit: Cigarettes (currently out of the habit again, thankfully — as of, uh, today).
X – Rays or Ultrasounds: [WTF?]
Y – Your favorite food: A three-way tie: pizza, steak, and Oreos.
Z – Zodiac Sign: Aquarius.
