Now I Know My ABCs

Memes can be a fun way to reveal things about yourself that wouldn't normally come up in everyday conversation. Here's an elementary one I borrowed from The Daily Meme.

A - Age: 45 in July
B - Band listening to right now: Michael Buble (the new Harry Connick Jr.) No, I'm not gay.
C - Career future: Small-business owner in a resort town
D - Dad's name: Bill
E - Easiest person to talk to: My wife
F - Favorite song: Blues Don't Get Off - written and performed by yours truly. Check it out!
G - Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: Worms - duh.
H - Hometown: Duluth, MN
I - Instruments: Piano, harmonica, guitar, voice
J - Job: Technical project manager (fancy name for a guy that manages computer programmers). Also, helping fellow bloggers who use cool tools like macZOT!
K - Kids: 3
L - Longest car ride ever: Harrisburg, PA to Albuquerque,
NM nonstop. 1840 miles. Ouch.
M - Mom's name: Lois
N - Number of people you slept with: I rarely slept
P - Phobia[s]: High edges/cliffs
Q - Quote:
"What goes around, comes around"
R - Reason to smile: When the kids are good and the wife is happy
S - Song you sang last: With The Receders: Cherry Cherry (Neil Diamond). In my car on the way home: Save the Last Dance for Me
(Michael Buble). No, I'm not gay.
T - Time you wake up: 5:45
U - Unknown fact about me:
If I push on my right eyeball it makes a clicking sound. If I push on it real fast repeatedly it sounds like a geiger counter in my head.
V - Vegetable you hate: Brussel sprouts
W - Worst habit: Making a sucking sound when I'm trying to get food out of my teeth by creating a vacuum with my tongue (ala Uncle Bob)
X - X-rays you've had: Only dental that I can remember
Y - Yummy food: Me loves the fruit!
Z - Zodiac sign: Leo

Blues Don't Get Off, love it! That's some kick-ass harmonica there.

Jess Riley said...

I do that teeth-cleaning vacuum thing, too!!! LOL

Duluth is an awesome city.

Mooselet said...

I like this meme. I may steal it from you.

Lovely evasive answer on 'N'. An 'U' - that's just icky. Cool, but icky.

Schnozz said...

"Worms, duh" ?!?!?!?!

What kind of stupid worm is tricolor? How can you resist the delicious treat that is a part of American culture and has been featured in such films as Ferris Bueller's Day Off??

You're dead to me.

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

Linda - Thanks! Playing harmonica is one of my very most favorite things in the whole world. The WHOLE WORLD I said, did you hear me!

Jess - Too bad you can't appreciate the Uncle Bob reference, although I guarantee my family does.

Mooselet - That would be cool if you used it. I didn't feel like tagging anybody with it. The eyeball thing is cool, I'm glad you "saw" that. Rowr.

Schnozz - Yeah but the truthiness of it is, you can't dangle gummy bears out of your mouth!
