The Alphabet Questions Meme

I've been tagged by Dr. Platypus for a meme. I think I'm one of the few people in all the blogosphere NOT to have been tagged till now! But if I hurry, maybe I can get mine done before Singing Owl does hers!

A - Available or Married? Available, though particular concerning to whom or what I am available.
B - Best Moment? Serving the Lord's Supper for the first time when serving as a UM local pastor.
C - Cake or Pie? Cake. Chocolate.
D - Drink of choice? Diet Dr. Pepper. (I'm with ya on that one, "Dr. P.!" (Tried the cherry vanilla variety yet? Quite good.) A good cup of hot jasmine tea comes in a close second in the winter, though.
E - Essential Item? Daytime: My car (after all the hassle, it had BETTER be essential!). Nighttime: Sleep.
F - Favorite Color? Blue, purple, or red and their corresponding pastels, depending on my mood.
G - Gummi Bears or Worms? Bears, especially the pineapple and lime flavors.
H - Hometown? Portland, Oregon.
I - Indulgence? Chocolate.
J - January or February? February. It's when I was born.
K - Kids & names? When I was married, at age 21 I miscarried early and never learned whether we lost David Michael or Rachel Frances. I've mothered a series of feline children since then; those who share life with me now are Rosie Lee and Jenny Lou.
L - Life is incomplete without? Love.
M - Marriage Date? December 9, 1978 (though the marriage is no more)
N - Number of Siblings? Three, two of whom are still living.
O - Oranges or apples? Apples; like Dr. P., preferably Granny Smith, but definitely withOUT the peanut butter. Now caramel sauce is a different matter...(one should not blog while hungry).
P - Phobias/Fears… Snakes and heights. That is why I never went to see "Snakes on a Plane," I suppose.
Q - Favorite Quotation? Humorous: “The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.” --Clairee in "Steel Magnolias"
Serious: "I can make good come out of evil--I AM the good come out of evil." --Walter Wangerin, in Ragman and Other Cries of Faith
R - Reason to Smile? Three- and four-year-old choir members
S - Season? Spring.
T - Tag three people! Molly, April, and Paisley
U - Unknown fact about me: My lowest undergraduate grade was a well-earned "D"--in New Testament! Kept me from being graduated with honors.
V - Vegetable you hate? Toss-up between beets, eggplant, and okra. And no, not even frying the latter makes them palatable to me. (I'm told that's proof I wasn't born in the South, to which I say, "I never claimed I was.")
W - Worst habit? Putting off till tomorrow what I know I'll wish I had done today. Yep, Queen of Procrastinatia here.
Y - Your favorite food? See "I."
Z - Zodiac? Western = Pisces; Chinese = Boar (I simply refuse to say "Pig." But I guess it's now "my year," huh?) Does it count if I think both are a bunch of hooey?

HA! I already did it!
But I *do* feel very honored that you tagged me.

Psalmist said...

Oh..sorry! I didn't recall that you'd done this one.

Or did you start the meme? (vwg)

Dear and Gentle Reader,

Since I last had the pleasure of visiting ye, I have had many thoughts upon ye and your work in this, our online community.

Who knows but it may please God to make ye an instrument in His glorious work? In effecting an union among the labourers in His vineyard? That He may direct and bless you in all your steps is the prayer of my heart.

Your affectionate and obedient servant,

Psalmist said...

Oh, great...No sooner does Molly call me a brat, than Daddy John drops by for a visit!

Actually, I thank you both kindly for your comments, especially the constructive kind from YOU, Mr. Wesley. ( :-P to Molly) tee-hee!

Singing Owl said...

WOW! The great man himself!

I left a bunch of comments for you over at my place.

Enjoyed it! That's what you did with your coffee time last saturday???

My two cents/Paisley

Psalmist said...

A.M., m'dear! That was just after midnight!

I let myself sleep in, then went and unlocked the church for the 5:30 wedding, got my directory portrait stuff done, and then assisted with the wedding. So technically, I was snoozing during what would have been the "coffee time," but busy pretty much the rest of the day!

Welcome home.
