Alphabet Meme

This has not been the best week so far, and I've been mildly depressed. Things are feeling a bit better this morning, but I still think I could do with a shot of fun. I first saw this meme on the blog of a guy who goes by the name The Persian. Here's my version:

A is for age: 49
B is for beer of choice: Killian’s Red. Especially good with pizza. But I'd really rather drink wine.
C is for career: Conservation Biologist working as a curator in a natural history museum.
D is for favorite Drink: Tea, especailly vanilla
E is for essential item you use everyday: A toothbrush
F is for favorite song at the moment: Vienen los Pajaros from the choral work Canto General. Poem by Paolo Neruda, music by Mikos Theodorakis
G is for favorite game: Sudoku
H is for hometown: Manchester-by –the-Sea, Massachusetts
I is for instruments you play: My nickname in college by a music major friend was atonality. I am totally unmusical.
J is for favorite juice: cranberry
K is for kids: None
L is for last kiss: Last night
M is for marriage: Married in Canada in August, 2003. But the 25th anniversary of our being together is next year.
N is for name of your best friend: Mel and Rick
O is for overnight hospital stays: Early 1970’s for anaphylactic shock following a bee sting. So now I do a lot of entomology- go figure.
P is for phobias: Drowning
Q is for quote: "What happens if I push this button?."
R is for biggest regret: I stuck with my last job for about 5 years longer than I should have. .
S is for self confidence Not much of a problem for me. I love what I do, and am reasonably good at it.
T is for time you wake up: 5:00 AM
U is for underwear: Briefs.
V is for vegetable you love: Sweet Corn
W is for worst habit: Procrastination
X is for x-rays you have had: Chest, arm, hand, head and dental
Y is for yummy food you make: Salsa. I’ve been blogging about making cheese lately, but we don’t yet know if it’s yummy or not.

Hey your comment made me laugh and I really needed a laugh today! Thanks! I think I might attempt this meme soon. I am trying to finish one called 7 weird things about you. It wasn't as easy as I thought.

Let me know how you like Stiff I enjoyed it so much I read it twice. I will suggest also anything by Bill Bryce he is hilarious I think you would enjoy him.

Good Day!
