the abc's of des

So this meme has been making the rounds, and while nobody's tagged me specifically, I know that they will at some point. So I'm one-upping them.

A - Attached or Single?: Attached. Unquiet heart wants to start a war over who has the Best Boyfriend Ever, so I think I(Craig) could giver her a run for her money.

B - Best Friend?: I have many. Most are far far away, which sucks for a variety of reasons. The ones that are close by get clung to, as if they have nobody else.

C - Cake or Pie?: Cake. If I eat pie, it has to be creamy.

D - Drink of Choice?: Water's always good, but I also enjoy a good juice or tea. Alcoholic? Again with the juice. And RUM! (Rum + juice = grog. Arrr!)

E - Essential Items?: Does the cat count? I'd say computer, but that's so unhealthy. Phone? I don't get enough calls. How about my bed. My comfy comfy bed.

F - Favorite Color?: I haven't picked one for today. Maybe yellow.

G - Gummie Bears or Worms?: Those sour worms, but only if they are gelatin-free. (Damn vegans.)

H - Hometown?: I grew up in Eureka, CA then moved to Fresno, CA for high school. College was Davis, CA, and now I live in Brooklyn, NY. So all of those.

I - Indulgence?: Reading books. What a nerd.

J - January or February?: January, though I don't know why.

K - Kids?: Not yet, unless you count Mecru.

L - Life is incomplete without?: friends and fun.

M - Marriage Date?: Sometime in the future, I'm assuming.

N - Number of Siblings?: 2 - an older sister and a younger bro. PLus 2 older step-siblings.

O - Oranges or Apples?: Apples, generally. But I do like me a good tangerine! (Or tangelo)

P - Phobias/Fears?: I fear nothing.

Q - Favorite Quote?:

"I haven't any right to criticise books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticise Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Everytime I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone."

-Mark Twain

Me too, man. Me too.

R - Reason to smile?: The cat's always good for a smile. So's the boyfriend, when he dances in the kitchen for me. Aren't pets great?

S - Seasons?: Spring. Summer's too hot. Fall is pretty and you get to wear sweaters. Winter is cool unless you have to go out amid snowstorms (stupid work). But Spring has pretty flowers.

T - Tags?: Everyone and no one.

U - Unknown Fact About Me?: I can dance like a money funka!

V - Vegetarian or oppressor of animals?: Clearly I'm a veggo, and have been for years.
Mostly vegan: noun. One who prefers animal-free food, but will eat dairy when she has no choice, mostly because she lives with Captain Cheese.

W - Worst Habit?: Always having to start what I finish, i.e. cleaning, or making jewelry.

X - X-rays or ultrasounds?: I've had both multiple times, but more x-rays. Neither are fun.

Y - Your favorite food?: I'm a big fan of pasta. But I'll eat just about anything as long as it meets with my high personal standards.

Z - Zodiac?: Gemini! That's how you know my bday is in 2 weeks....

I had never before read that Mark Twain quote and I LOVE it! I think Sam and I could have been drinkin' buddies.

Every time I read that quote I crack up so hard. It brings my respect for that guy up a whole 'nuther level.

I am always in awe when I read that someone is a vegan. Vegetarian would be hard enough, vegan?

Not so much because I like my red meat or anything, but mostly because I HATE vegetables and I REALLY REALLY like many dairy products. Oh and soy milk tastes like CRAP. You amaze me.

Okay, so that begs the obvious question...are you vegan because you think it's healthier or are you vegan because you think eating anything with any animal by product in it is cruel and hateful and all of us carnivores are destined for a special place in hell?? *grins*

super des said...

Well I think cow's milk tastes like crap. So there. And it's not like I'm drinking soy milk straight or anything. It goes IN stuff.

And I'm a veggo for basically every reason someone could think of to be on. It's healthier. I never liked meat. I don't like the way the animals are treated, both with drugs and the living/dying conditions. And so on.

I answered that one in more detail on this blog before, but I'm too lazy to find it. That'll give you something to do if you're bored.

i've never even read any jane austen [yes, really], but that quote is the awesome.

super des said...

I've never been able to finish any Jane Austen.

I love this. I may have to do one too.
