Alphabetized for easy perusal


Alphabet Meme - Like I have nothing better to do.

A is for Age - 28 years young, regardless of what they may have you think.

B is for Booze - YES! Any and all! I love beer, wine, spirits, the whole blessed idea of alcoholic beverages. If forced to choose favorites, here we go... Spirits: Vodka (especially citrus vodka) and many drinks that contain vodka, such as Black Russians, Vodka tonic, and Citron and lemonade, Gin (mmm, Sapphire) and Tonic. Beer: Erdinger & Guiness. Wine: White Bordeaux, yum! and some South American wines I've tried that are top-rate.

C is for Career - Nothing glamorous, I work for a large corporation's trucking fleet making sure we get paid for everything we do. I'm also a part-time student hoping to eventually become a CPA.

D is for Dad’s name - Angel, those who know him may appreciate the irony.

E is for Essential items to bring to a party - beer and good cheer.

F is for Favorite song at the moment - Geez, I don't know, haven't listened to much music for a while. Although the Led Zeppelin song they play for Cadillac commercials makes me want to get up and dance every time. Hoo-oo yea! Hoo-oo yeah!

G is for Golf? - I've never had the slightest inclination to try it. Mini-golf is OK by me.

H is for Hometown - North Side of Chi-Town, Lakeview neighborhood specifically. I currently dwell in Champaign, IL.

I is for Instrument you [used to] play - Percussion

J is for Jam or Jelly you like - Blackberry (I love all thngs blackberry)

K is for Kids - Two (if you've read this far, you deserve to know even though I haven't made the "formal" blog annoucnement yet). 11 1/2 month old Matthew Boniface and conceived-less-than three months ago Baby-Lu #2!

L is for Living arrangement - Two bedroom apartment on the second (practically third) floor.

M is for Mom’s name - Carmen

N is for Names of best friends - Mama-Lu!

O is for overnight hospital stays - two, one when I had my first asthma attack in third grade, another when I ripped up my knee in high school and had what I call the "hat-trick surgery" ligaments, cartilage and a tendon had all snapped.

P is for Phobias - None really. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Although yesterday I did confess to Mama-Lu that I have a recurring fer every time I change Matthew's poopy diaper that he's going to crawl over to the dirty diaper and play with his poop.

Q is for Quote you like - Not my favorite all time, but I just came across this over the weekend while finising Dumas' The Three Musketeers:
“Do you know,” said Porthos, “that to twist that damned Milady’s neck would be a smaller sin than to twist those of these poor devils of Huguenots, who have committed no other crime than singing in French the psalms we sing in Latin?”

R is for Relationship that lasted longest - That would have to be with my wife of 1 3/4 years.

S is for Siblings - older brother and older sister

T is for Television? - Only when necessary - there's nothing I really like or commit myself to watching regularly. All my favorite shows are syndicated: Cosby, the Simpsons (well, I guess that one's still around) Cheers, All in the Family.

U is for Unique trait - my left is ear is slightly clipped on the top, into a slightly elvish shape, just like my late grandma's was. We were born that way, it's not some crazy Caribbean ritual.

V if for Vegetable you love - since being married, I discovered I love Zuchs. Mama-Lu fried them in olive oil. Yum!

W is for Worst trait - LAZY! My ideal day is any day I don't have to change out of my jammies (now you see why blogging appeals to me)

X - is for XRays you’ve had - knee (see "O" for details), chest (asthma), left pinky finger (sliced on broken glass bottle), right ring finger (sliced on broken coffee mug - yes, I'm that brilliant)

Y is for Yummy food you make - Mama-Lu loves my schnitzel and my pancakes. I am also master of the grill, but, well, that doesn't count for much. I once remarked that grilling is a sham that makes men feel accomplished for no good reason. I simply stand there and watch the meat get dark. I can't really mess it up at all. In the meantime, Jenny is racing around the kitchen making side salads or kabobs to go with my slabs of meat. Who am I kidding?

Z is for Zodiac sign - Aquarius
