Sunday Stealing: The ABC Meme

You can play here.

A – An advantage you have – A good upbringing

B – Blue or brown eyes – Blue

C – Chore you hate – Don't particularly hate any; just like to put off most of them as long as possible

D – Dad’s name – Roy

E – Essential start of your day – Waking up

F – Favorite color – Blue

G – Greatest thing you’ve ever done that made you feel really good – Not particularly great, but a couple of decades ago I once wrote a few pages in a comic book (Trigon Comics' Totally Alien #5) and was ridiculously excited when the issue turned up at my local comic shop.

H – Habit you have – Telling unfunny jokes

I – Issue you hate that the world tries to make you pursue – None in particular, though maybe I'm just being unobservant and failing to realise the issues the world wants me to pursue

J – Job title – Senior Software Engineer

K – Kohls or Target – Neither, since I haven't a clue what either of them are

L – Living arrangements – Live alone in a chaotically messy flat during the week, visit my mother at the weekends

M – Music you like – All sorts; for further details you can check out my profile page, or click on one of the playlists on this page

N - Nicknames – Marky Mark, Barker

O – Overnight hospital stay – Not so far

P – Pet Peeve – People who listen to their music too loud on public transport

Q – Quote that you like most – That'd be Alan Moore's “Quitting my job and starting my life as a writer was a tremendous risk. It was a fool’s leap, a shot in the dark, but anything of any value in our lives--whether that be a career, a work of art, a relationship--will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding.”

R – Right or left handed – Right

S – Siblings – A sister, plus a half-sister and a couple of half-brothers

T – Time you wake up – It varies. On weekdays, I've woken up by 6am, on Saturdays by 8:45am and on Sunday it could be any time before lunch

U – Underwear – Yes

V – Vegetable you dislike – Brussels sprout

W – What makes you run late – Delays on public transport

X – X-rays you’ve had – The only ones I can remember having are when I've been at the dentist's

Y – Yummy food you make – Paella with prawns, though it's out of a box so there's no skill involved.

Z – Zoo animal – Black Panther

I'm with ya on the Brussels Sprouts. Not sure why good they are to anybody.

Great quote. Have a happy Sunday :)

Hootin' Anni said...

Along with the loud music, I'd have to add the cellphones ringing and loud talking with them.

I posted. I do hope you can stop by for a visit with me today too.

Uh oh, Kohls and Target might be on your to see list :) But I'll just point them out as we drive by.

Waking up is essential!You are a riot this week, as usual. Enjoy your day...

The Gal Herself said...

I love your common sense: You can't start your day without waking up! Since I get at least one set of x-rays at the dentist each year, I'm surprised I didn't think to include those, too.

Brussels Sprouts are disgusting, but I think we had that before. Talk about repetitive memes.

PennyLane said...

You never tell unfunny jokes :)
I laugh at all of them on your blog!

Black panthers. How sleek and absolutely beautiful. I'm not sure I've seen one at our local St. Louis Zoo.
