An Alphabetical Meme

Boosted from Mrs. Chili…

A – Age: 41+ years (I’ll turn 42 in July)

B – Bed size: Full

C – Chore you hate: dishes. Apparently there are dishes that aren’t supposed to go in the dishwasher, which I find to be ridiculous. What the hell is a dishwasher, for, then? I’d much rather just toss the dirty dishes in the washer and let it do its thing.

I can’t really complain, though, because the VAST majority of the time that some dishes need to be handwashed, it’s Cookiemaker or her mother that does them.

D – Dog’s name: we don’t have one right now, but Cookiemaker’s parents used to have a Lhasa Apsos named Bonsai. My paternal grandparents had a pair of German Sheperds named Misty and Rebel. The last dog I remember having was a German Sheperd / Alaskan Husky mix we named Chris. Someday Cookiemaker, Little Man, and I will own a Scottish Deerhound named Strider.

E – Essential start your day item: coffee, with a not-so-healthy dollop of flavored creamer (preferably Irish Cream or Amaretto), and an insane amount of sugar

F – Favorite color: red

G – Gold or Silver: Gold; yellow gold, specifically (which is also Mrs. Chili’s answer)

H – Height: 5’7″

I – Instruments you play: none, although I’ve tried to learn both the guitar and the piano.

J – Job title: Device Specialist, father, husband

K – Kid(s): Little Man, who’ll be six come December

L – Living arrangements: living in a townhouse / condo-type setup with my mother-in-law

M – Mom’s name: Mary

N – Nicknames: Rikky, J-Bond, Dadoo, Honey, Snake (don’t ask about the last one)

O – Overnight hospital stay other than birth: never

P – Pet Peeve(s): obey the rules of the road – don’t be a dick, and don’t be overly nice, either. Pick up after yourself – NOW, not when you happen to think of it.

Q – Quote from a movie: “Ballsy. Stupid, but ballsy.”

R – Right or Left handed: left

S – Siblings: one – a sister a little more than five years older than me

T – Time you wake up: sometime between six and seven.

U -Underwear: tightie-whiteys (at least in style – the current batch are actually varying shades of blue. How’s that for TMI? 🙂 )

V – Vegetable you dislike: lima beans. Sweet potatoes. Squash.

W – Ways you run late: getting distracted by something on the computer, TV, or radio.

X – X-rays you’ve had: teeth

Y – Yummy food you make: BWAHAHAHAHAHA! You want me to make food?! Newsflash – if I can’t chuck it in the microwave, I ain’t even attempting it.

Z- Zodiac Sign: Cancer



  1. Dude, men who can cook are sexy. Men who can cook and do the dishes are really sexy.

    These pursuits are worth sustained effort. Trust me. 🙂

    • Ditto.

  2. As for coffee, I have said in my blog, I think, that I’ve only been drinking it for a few years. I have it every morning now, and am glad of it. I make regular coffee. I nuke some milk. I fill the cup about 1/3 hot milk and 2/3 coffee, leaving room for a bit of sugar-free flavoring like the stuff you see in bottles at a coffee stand (same brand most of ’em use, in fact). I have two.

    I do dishes, I don’t mind. I agree about the ones not supposed to go in the dishwasher. Who needs ’em?

    I don’t cook.

    By my definition, lima beans and squash aren’t vegetables to start with. Sweet potatoes are, and I actually like them.
