ABC's of The Onion

A. Age:
Old enough to know better than to ask someone to guess my age.

B. Bed size:

Queen size, routinely inhabited with dogs or cats.  Or both.

C. Chore you Hate:

Um..all of them. That's why its called a CHORE. If I liked it, it would be called a HOBBY...

D. Dogs:
Corgi and Chihuahua. We used to have an Irish Wolfhound. We are people of extremes.

E. Essential start to your day:

News. Before the eyes fully open, the news comes on. Charlie Sheen has been a real wake up treat this week. What a tool.

F. Favorite color:
Brown. Yes, it is. It is too! Don't judge.

G. Gold or silver:

H. Height:

Hopelessly average.

I. Instruments you play:

The Blackberry and I am actually quite good.

J. Job title:

Public Relations Consultant and general know-it-all.

K. Kids:

Yes. Special Agent and I love the Baboos.

L. Live:
Yes. I'll live.  

M. Mum's name:

The Garden, of which the onion sprung. Fertilized by horse shit.

N. Nicknames:
The Onion and whatever people call me behind my back.

O. Overnight hospital stays:

Two stays after the birth of each of the Baboo's. Special Agent and I couldn't wait to spring out of the joint and get a hamburger with our new offspring. The nurses thought Special Agent was trying to bully me to leave early, but really it was all about a grilled burger.

P. Pet peeve:
Misspellings - I had to make sure I didn't misspell that.

Q. Quote from a movie:
Oh man, where do i start? I have a movie line for almost every occasion. 

"these are not the droids you are looking for" is said often here.

R. Righty or Lefty:
It's righty tighty, lefty loosey, same as always.

S. Siblings:

You saw her. She is the nice one.

T. Time you wake up:

5:55 so i can turn on GMA to get my daily dose of Charlie Sheen, etc.

U. Underwear:


V. Vegetables you dislike:

Cauliflower. It isn't even a flower.

W. What makes you run late:

life in general. And secret robots.

X. X-rays you've had:

None. I am a pacifist and I don't like sports. A fat guy fell on me skating once, and I am sure I had a broken finger, so I quit sports altogether after that tragic incident. 

Y. Yummy food you make:
A lot! I like to cook. (Thanks, I like to play ((ting.)) Now there is a movie quote.

Z. Zoo animal favorite:
Giraffe. When i saw one at the Denver zoo, if leaned over the railing and licked my niece on the face. Scary an cool. And glad it wasn't my face.

Ok, your turn...
