ABC Meme
Saw this on Gemmak's blog and thought it was good little conversation piece.

A is for Age: Well, 35, of course! (But just two months more...)

B is for Booze: Not very often...the health stuff tends to dictate that, but I've been known to imbibe once or twice. ;-)

C is for Career: Buyer/Logistics Analyst

D is for Dad's Name: Richard, but goes by Dick. I always thought how it would be terrible if the name you're given at birth morphed over the years into some sort of nasty slang. Definitely feel for the Dick's and Gay's of this world.

E is for Essential Item to Bring to a Party: My nefarious macaroni salad, for sure! Well, that and my smiling personality.

F is for Favorite Songs at the Moment: Day after Tomorrow, Tom Waits; Those Words, Cory Lee; Mr. Brightside, The Killers; Gwen Stefani, Cool; American Soldier, Toby Keith

G is for Goof-off Thing to Do: Name That Tune at the pub. Always good fun to let off a little steam.

H is for Hometown: Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver BC

I is for Instrument You Play: Heart strings? or musical would have to be my MP3 player. ;-)

J is for Jam or Jelly You Like: homemade Blackberry

K is for Kids: None from this girl. But I get my fill from my niece's babes.

L is for Living Arrangement: Me and the dog.

M is for Mom's Name: Eileen.

N is for Names of Good Friends: At the risk of unintentionally missing a mention, I will just say I am blessed in the friendship department.

O is for Overnight Hospital Stays: Gawd. Too many. Many as a child. As an adult, muscular reconstruction of my wrist (1995); sepsis (6 days in ICU in 2003); kidney (December 2004)

P is for Phobias: Spiders. It's getting worse with age. I have difficulty opening closets in my house or moving things that may have even a remote possibility!

Q is for Quotes You Like: "We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm."

R is for Relationship That Lasted Longest: 10 years with my ex. Ended in 1995.

S is for Siblings: 4 older brothers.

T is for Texas: Never been. Looks ok though. I'd love to go to a baseball game there.

U is for Unique Trait: I read magazines from back to front.

V is for Vegetables You Love: Yellow squash, turnip, asparagus

W is for Worst Traits: I analyse way too much.

X is for X-rays You've Had: So many I should glow. Most recent, my knee.

Y is for Yummy Food You Make: Pasta with a garlic, cream sauce. No recipe - I just throw whatever in and it usually turns out amazing.

Z is for Zodiac Sign: Virgo, on the Libra cusp.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
