The ABCs of Me . . .

Alrighty then, I swiped this from Crazy Knitting Fool and have been saving it for just such an occasion, i.e. a day where I have a ton of stuff to accomplish at home and need to get cracking rather than sitting in front of the computer  :-D

A - Age: I'm as old as my tongue and a wee bit older than my teeth.  Thank you Gramma. (Seriously, according to my Irish Grandmother, a woman who'll tell her age will tell anything ;-) )
B - Biggest Fear: Being trapped or unable to get out/away (PTSD after last November's car accident).
C - Current time: 10:09 a..m., Central Standard Time.  It's snowing.  First snow of the year.
D - Drink you last had: Water.  It's pretty much always water.  Or tea.  But at the moment, it's water.
E - Easiest  person to talk to: My friend, T, knows where all the bodies are buried  ;-D
F - Favorite Song: Geez - you cannot ask a musician this question  :-D  Seriously!!  Do you mean favorite song to sing?  To sing along with? To dance to? To pipe? To listen to? From a musical? Ancient music? Popular music?  Sacred music?  This week's favorite?  Last month's favorite?  Do you see the problem here?  :-D  Go listen to Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra play Love's Theme or to Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars. Or this. Or this. Or this.  Or - oh please, don't start me up, we could be here all day . . .
G - Grossest Memory: Yeah, no. No one needs to know that  :-D
H - Hometown: Chicagoland  :-)
I - In Love With: No one at the moment . . .
J - Jealous Of: Those closely and easily in touch with the intuitive side of their nature.
K - Killed Someone: ?!
L - Longest Relationship: Hmmmm, probably with my job  :-D  That's kinda sorry, isn't it?
M - Middle Name: Adrienne  (yeah, you're all wondering about that now, aren't you?  ;-D)
N - Number of Siblings: a half-brother and a million cousins who might as well be my siblings.
O - One Wish: A great and abiding love . . .  I'd settle for world peace, though.  Neither appears imminent, I'm afraid.
P - Person you last called: My friend, T.
Q - Question You’re Always Asked: "Can you really play the bagpipes?"   Yes, yes I can.
R - Reason to live: You know, every morning I wake up is a good reason to keep going.  I'm grateful for every day that I am given on this earthly plain.
S - Song you last sang:  LOL - It's either the choral Amen at the end of church on Sunday or I was singing along to Uptown Funk in the car.  Can't remember which one was last  :-D
T - Time you woke up: 5:00 a.m.  Yes, it's stupidly early for a Saturday.  I know.
U - Underwear color: Rose with purple dots :-D  And yeah, I had to look to be sure  :-D (hey, I got up really early)
V - Vacation Destination: So many - too many to choose just one.  I'd go back to Morocco  and/or Scotland in a New York minute.  Places I haven't been - Russia, Japan, Hawaii, and the Pacific Northwest
W - Worst Habit: I have a longstanding and unrequited love of cupcakes.
X - X-Rays you’ve had: Too many to count - from dental X-rays to an MRI of my brain (good news, there - I apparently DO have a brain).  Most recently, three or four views of my knees.
Y - Your favorite food: Steak.  Potatoes.  Pesto.  Shrimp.  Popcorn with butter.
Z - Zodiac Sign:  Taurus.  A pretty typical one, I might add  :-)

How about you?  Care to share?
