The ABC's Meme

Stolen shamelessly from Debonair Debacles, because I adore her and I adore memes:

A - Age: 3?
B - Band listening to right now: Texas
C - Career future: More art, Less irritation
D - Dad’s name: Ted (actually Ted, not short for Theodore)
E - Easiest person to talk to: Damion, because he just gets me
F - Favorite type of shoe: Rockports. Comfortable and fashion-forward!
G – Grapes or Grapefruit: Love both, but grapes are sexier.
H – Hometown: Athens, GA (also home of R.E.M. and the B-52's. Yay!)
I – Instrumental talent: A bunch, surprisingly. Took piano lessons as a kid, and can still tinker around. In high school, I was the go-to guy for skimpy orchestra sections, so I learned the trumpet, trumbone, baritone, tuba, flute, xylophone, French horn, and English horn. I also play a mean kazoo.
J – Juice of choice: tomato, especially on planes. (I have no idea why.)
K – Koala Bear or Panda Bear: Panda Bear. Koalas look retarded.
L - Longest car ride ever: Atlanta to New York City. In a nor'easter blizzard. Jesus, I hate riding in cars.
M – Middle name: I have three (thanks Mom and Dad!). They are Todd, Stephen and Gabriel.
N - Number of jobs you’ve had: 17. They were gardener, dishwasher, ice cream cart worker, busboy, waiter, telemarketer, administrative assistant, Kinko's midnight shift, artistic associate, marketing director, advertising manager, membership director, managing director, artistic director, playwright, actor, director. Best: director. Worst: waiter at Red Lobster.
O- OCD traits: counting the number of letters on roadway signs.
P - Phobias: Heights. It's really bad for me. Three feet off the ground, I start to sweat.
Q - Quote: "Cigarettes are one of the leading causes of statistics." (Liza Minnelli)
R - Reason to smile: My hubby.
S - Song you sang last: "Halo" by Texas, about thirty seconds ago
T - Time you wake up: 7AM weekdays, 9AM weekends
U - Unknown fact about me: I've lost 16 pounds since January 1st.
V - Vegetable you hate: Black-eyed peas.
W - Worst habit: Trying to fix everyone's problems
X - X-rays you’ve had: everything (I've broken a lot of bones over the years)
Y - Yummiest food my belly likes: chocolate and cheese
Z - Zodiac sign: Taurus, with Gemini rising

for a minute I read that as:
"artistic director at Red Lobster"

How cool would that be, figuring out where to hang nets and such. :)

There's a new novel by Stuart O'Nan called "Last Night at the Lobster." You might enjoy it, or it might bring back too many unhappy memories.

Thanks for stealing, I didn't tag anyone because some people get annoyed.

So what's in the water in Athens? All that creativity...

Tomato juice seems to be the juice of choice on airplanes for EVERYONE. What's with that? Seriously?

(And Ginger Ale seems to be the pop of choice, is it monkey see monkey do?)

I never knew you could play one instrument, let alone a whole one-man's band worth.

Yay on the 16 pounds!
