I haven't done a quiz-thing in a really long time, so here's one I'm stealing from Roger:
A- Advocate for: Combating global warming; the merits of the Star Wars Prequels; the dismissal of everyone with the Buffalo Bills above the rank of "kid who fills the cups with Gatorade".
B- Best Feature: Either my brain or my hair.
C- Could do without: Joe Lieberman. I'm sure glad they gave him a stern talking-to back in January; it's turning out well.
D- Dreams and desires: To write something that's good.
E- Essential items: Books, music, movies, hand and power tools, my computer(s), cats, bib overalls, pizza, rum, beer, lemonade, ice water, apples, white peaches, blueberries, coconut cream pie.
F- Favorite past time: "Past time"? The Romantic Era, I suppose. Pastime? Reading, blogging, generally partaking of any activity involving the "Essential Items" listed above.
G- Good at: learning; wasting time online.
H- Have never tried: Authentic Indian or Thai cuisine, made by pros in a restaurant. I've had takeout versions and "quick make at home" kinds of dishes, but never the real items.
I- If I had a million dollars: I'd own a nice house on a nice piece of land.
J- Junkie for: coffee and tea.
K- Kindred spirit: All spirits are kindred. Whoa....
L- Little known fact: I've only had stitches once. It was in second grade, when I fell off my bike and hit my chin on the sidewalk.
M- Memorable moment: Playing a work for solo trumpet in college, written by a friend who was majoring in Composition.
N- Never again will I: read Ayn Rand. Once was enough.
O- Occasional indulgence: I try to take a four-day weekend three or four times a year.
P- Profession: Maintenance/Handyman
Q- Quote: “If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.” (James Cameron said that. I just heard it last week, in an article I still need to link one of these days.)
R- Reason to smile: The Daughter continues to grow. Good movies continue to come out. I continue to learn new things.
S- Sorry about: Telling my parents some unimaginably unbelievable whoppers as a kid.
T- Things you are worrying about right now: The vomitous mass that is the United States Senate.
U- Uninterested in: John McCain's opinion on anything. Sarah Palin's opinion on anything. Rush Limbaugh's opinion on anything. Glenn Beck's opinion on anything. Lather, rinse, repeat.
V- Very scared of: The onward march of ignorance, the increasing disrespect toward science, the disregarding of certain problems until they will be unsolvable, the rigid adherence to the worship of the "free market".
W- Worst habits: swearing too much, eating too much, surfing the Web too much.
X- X marks my ideal vacation spot: I think I could have fun anywhere at all. Even right here. I've been enjoying "staycations" for years.
Y- Yummiest dessert: Ice cream. Cookies. Cake. Coconut cream pie. Apple pie. Cherry cobbler.
Z- Zodiac sign: Libra, even though astrology is a giant batch of hooey.
