Tagged by Lyn, who got it from our good friend Nick.

A is for age:
as of the day I write this, 43 years, 10 months, 23 days

B is for burger of choice:
Bacon cheeseburger plain. Yup - just the beef, the cheese, and a big wad of bacon, on a bun.

C is for what kind of car you drive:
1995 Dodge Ram 2500 conversion van

D is for your dog's name:
My landlord doesn't allow dogs. However, there is a cat in the house.

E is for essential item you use everyday:
My computer

F is for favorite TV show at the moment:
There aren't many shows that will actually break me from my regular activities. However, I still like the Flintstones, Big Brother, and I'm a big fan of classic game shows (Press Your Luck, Weakest Link, in addition to the classic 70's lineups of Match Game, the original Jeopardy, yeah, with Art Fleming, Celebrity Sweepstakes, Card Sharks, Hollywood Squares, with Peter Marshall, and the 70's version of Password and Password All-Stars).

G is for favorite game:
Cribbage. BMP and AMP (my wife) will smoke all comers!

H is for Hometown:
Providence area

I is for instruments you play:
Organ, piano, throat, kazoo, guitar, bass guitar, some drums, my desk, and on occasion, the radio. (Note: at church, I only play the organ and voice, the rest I play in the secular world.)

J is for favorite juice:

K is for whose butt you'd like to kick:
I could name some names, but right now I need a job and the names I have in mind probably read my blog. So, I'll forego that question at this time.

L is for last restaurant you ate at?

M is for your favorite Muppet:
Animal - hands down! (The Swedish Chef, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, and Beaker get honorable mention, however.)

N is for Number of Piercing:
Zero, and proud of it!

Let's see: pancreatitis (8/07), near heart attack (10/06), gall bladder removal (4/05), tonsils removed (1969)

P is for people you were with today:
Wife Ann, son Brian, and daughter Brittany

Q is for what you do with your quiet time:
anything computer related, anything from podcasting to gaming to answering this here meme.

R is for biggest regret:
LEAVING HOLY NAME! Since then my luck with holding down a job I love doing has been pure frustrating!

S is for status:
Other than my marital status (which I'm sure everyone who normally reads this blog knows - I'm happily married), current time status would be sitting on my arse with two hours left to kill before I go fill in at the console for someone who programmed hideous music (hint: I'm only doing it because that's $225 I wouldn't have had. I'll list the songs in a later post.)

T is for time you woke up today:
7:45 am Eastern Daylight Time

U is for what you consider unique:
Try candlepin bowling in Ohio. Only one candlepin house in the state, in a Cincinnati suburb.
ADDENDUM: or an ordinary form Mass in these parts that uses the chanted propers from the Graduale Romanum.

V is for vegetable you love:
Corn (sweet and buttery)

W is for worst habit:
Until 2/1/06, it WAS smoking. Now it's eating (I gained almost 60 pounds since I quit smoking).

too many to count.

freeze pops
