The Devil Alphabetically ....

I stole this from Brooke. It's a great idea and I was completely out of anything original to write. Hopefully some people who read my blathering will do this on their blogs!

[A is for age:]
35. Yikes; this is a touchy subject. 35 and still not married? YIKES!!

[B is for booze of choice]
So many to chose from: Newcastle, Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey, Leinenkugel Berry Weiss, Stoli Vanilla vodka, Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve (smoothest whiskey/bourbon I've ever had; smooth as silk), Corona

[C is for career]
Wow, this getting even worse as I go along; right now, still looking. But otherwise some type of legal whore.

[D is for your dog's name:]
Well, no dog since I'm living this sort of Bohemian lifestyle. My last dog was given to me but he had the coolest name ever for a Rat Terrier, Rooster. I'd like to get another dog and name him either Toots (as in Toots and the Maytals) or Marley (no explanation needed for that one).

[E is for essential items you use everyday:]
Electric toothbrush, my cell phone, Diet Coke w/Lime, Neutrogena facial bar, MP3 player, ball caps (I've got about 20 I rotate) .....

[F is for favorite song(s) at the moment:]
"Lay Down" - O.A.R.
"Guajira" - Yerba Buena
"One Way Ticket" - The Darkness

[G is for favorite games:]
To quote Vince Vaughn from The Wedding Crashers, everyone's favorite dating game "Just the tip"

[H is for hometown:]
Dalhart, Texas: Home of the XIT Rodeo and Reunion (World's Largest Free BBQ)

[I is for instruments you play:]
I'm trying to learn the guitar (Both acoustic and electric)

[J is for jam or jelly you like:]
Strawberry or orange marmalade

[K is for kids?]
None yet; hopefully a couple of dorky kids with a predilection for offbeat music, foreign movies, and art would be great

[L is for last kiss?:]
Uh ... no such thing since I may be getting older; but I guess for now it would have to ML

[M is for most admired trait:]
Easy going attitude; I just go with things and take them as they come

[N is for name of your crush:]
Andrea Corr ... or Kate Winslet ... or Penelope Cruz ... or Salma Hayek ... or Barbara Mori ... or Monica Bellucci

[O is for overnight hospital stays:]
None so far (knocking on wood as I say this ... no, not that wood)

[P is for phobias:]
Conservative right-wing Christian phobia (I'm pretty much waiting for the Republican Party to start burning a cross in my front yard and begin deportation proceedings for anyone who doesn't agree with them)

[Q is for quotes you like:]
"Success is never final" - Winston Churchill
"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Nobody ever drowned himself in his own sweat" - old cowboy quote
"You can just about always stand more 'n you think you can" - old cowboy quote

[R is for biggest regret:]
Not pursuing my PhD when I realized I probably would've been much happier to do so

[S is for sweets of your choice:]
Coca-Cola in any form

[T is for time you wake up:]
Right now, about 7 AM; up until a couple of months ago, 6 AM

[U is for underwear:]
Boxers .... no tidy whities here

[V is for vegetables you love:]
Carrots and water chestnuts (is it a veggie? what doesn't taste better with a water chestnut?)

[W is for worst habit:]
Procrastination

[X is for x-rays you've had:]
A couple of my ankle when I was in the Army and at the dentist's office

[Y is for yummy food you make:]
Green Chile, Cheese and Chicken enchiladas .... very yummy!!

[Z is for zodiac sign:]
Gemini; I have a somewhat intellectual side but also an artistic side as well ... sometimes!

Now, anyone who wants to answer these as well, please do! I'd love to learn more about ya!

Not sure if I'm going to answer these, but I enjoyed your answers and I'm glad you're back.

YNH-
Thanks; it's good to be back. I need to keep posting regularly again

DCNats said...

I'm very much in favor of you posting more often... I'm trying to get through my work day here, and lately you haven't been cooperating!
Anyway, you rotate TWENTY hats?!?
That's crazy... I've always been a monogamous hat guy. I just keep one that I wear until it's falling apart and I have to buy a new one and repeat the process.

JHD said...

As if I would leave something like this alone. You know I'll be stealing and blogging, hopefully tonight.

But yes, please post more. Now that you can't annoy me...uh, I mean, drop by my desk... anymore, this is the only way I have to hear from you.

[J is for jam or jelly you like:]

[R is for biggest regret:]
i have no regrets. all of my stupidities have led me to be me. ;)

[N is for name of your crush:]
crushless since my ex and i broke up six months ago.

[Z is for zodiac sign:]

A. Estella Sassypants said...

I'll answer them! I love these, and I'm out of original stuff, too.

Great answers!

NML said...

Good answers! Welcome back :-)

Brookelina said...

I'm glad you're back too!

Regina said...

I like Winston Churchill's quote: "Never, never, never quit." Your alphabet list made me laugh, so I'll be back. And you're the first guy I've heard of who feels self-conscious because he's never been married. I'm pretty much at the only-good-for-soup age myself (39).

Cincysundevil said...

DCNATS-
You've gotta have a hat for each of your teams. I'll admit there are 3 or 4 that I wear more often than others

Cincysundevil said...

JHD-
C'mon; it's like I'm still there. I'm still bitching about everything.

And please do steal the list. I can't wait to read what you post there!

Cincysundevil said...

Jen-
Great list! Hey, aren't Scorpios supposed to really sexual people?

Cincysundevil said...

Andi-
Thank you kindly. I look forward to your responses

Cincysundevil said...

NML-
Good to see you back as well! I miss ya like crazy!!

Cincysundevil said...

Brooke-
Thanks! I'm glad to see you as well!

Regina-
It is a little crazy. I guess I'm just getting older and I'm ready to start settling down. Being 35 and single isn't the ideal situation, but neither is settling for just anything
