This time I am giving my own answers to the Petitedov tagging. You are warned that some of the things I say may turn out to be true!
A- available or single? – Married and unavailable
B- best friend? Money! Just kidding. There’s Gene, Michael, Jordan, Steve, Craig, etc.
C- cake or pie? Cake. Chocolate cake.
[Here I am in total agreement with my son. I would, however, like to add rum balls and raspberry chip brownies.]
D- drink of choice? - Well, I drink a lot of water! That said, I’m not too picky. Bonefish Grill had this pomegranate martini that I found interesting.
[“Water is bad enough in your shoes! For what do you want it in your stomach?”
-- Old family saying, poorly translated]
E- essential item I use every day: - The parking pass
F- favorite color? – Well, I seem to own a lot of blue
G- gummy bears or gummy worms? Not any of those two
[Here again I agree with my son]
H- hometown? Northern Virginia, but grew up in Maryland and born in New York City
I- indulgence? Milkshakes. After I munch a lactase enzyme pill
J- january or february? January. Because I haven’t gotten sick of winter yet, and because it’s my wife’s birthday (whereby I can buy her a present cheaper)
K- kids and names: Ilana (which we didn’t use because we have two boys), Nathan, (which we didn’t use because my wife didn’t like it), Evan (which we didn’t use because I didn’t go for it). Feel free to use these names if you want.
L- life is incomplete without? Project management. No, wait! How about . . . being able to see humor in almost anything.
M- marriage date: November 23, 1996
N- number of siblings: One younger sister.
O- oranges or apples? Oranges
P- phobias or fears? Vasovagal reactions.
Q- favorite quote? I have a few:
“Whereas a clock that stands still is right twice a day, a clock that runs backwards is right four times a day.”
“Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.”
“I think it is more exciting not to catch a large fish, than not to catch a small one.”
[The last one is attributed to Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (1893 – 1986).]
R- reasons to smile? I understand it's healthy for you.
S- season? Summer. I’m FOR global warming!
[If I sold t-shirts saying that would you buy them?]
T- tag: Theocon, Mike Antonucci, Tugboat Phil (what the heck is your blog?)
U- unknown fact about me: I bought my wife’s engagement ring four years before I even met her. That and I know the real fish story.
V- vegetable you don’t like: Beets
W- worst habit: Sarcasm. And too many remarks about fish.
Y- your favorite food? Fish. No, wait, I mean Chocolate!
Z- zodiac? Libra, or (metal) ox on the Chinese calendar
