From A to Z

This from Orchid.

A -Available? For a vacation, totally.
B-Best friend: BigGeek
C-Cake or Pie? Hmm..tough choice. Cake. Make that a chocolate torte. Nonononnonono. Make that pie, pecan pie. Wait a sec. it’s really cake. On the other hand, I like apple pie too. Let’s do Einee, Minee, Miney Mo. Or someone invent a PAKE or a CIE fast.
D-Drink of choice: Right now, it’s hot ginger tea.
E-Essential thing used everyday: Toothbrush and anti-wrinkle makeup.
F-Favourite colour: None. I like em all. But if I have to pick, I’ll say turquoise.
G-Gummi bears or worms: Bears. Always bears.. brings back memories my dad’s trips abroad when he brought those back, when my brother and I would excitedly open the suitcase and smell the wonderful scent of foreign lands.
H-Hometown: Small, sleepy, non-descript town in Maharashtra.
I-Indulgence: A day off.
J-January or February: February. At least the days are longer.
K-Kids and names: Chip. Technically I have only one child, but as I like to say, he is the buy one get one free variety.
L-Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans. (Lenon quote)
M-Marriage date: There are two. Married to the same man. Twice. Long story.
N-Number of siblings: 1
O-Oranges or apples: Neither. I like tropical fruit. Gimme mangoes and bananas and chikoo and guava and jackfruit any day.
P-Phobias: I am afraid of heights. Cannot look down from a 3 storied building without feeling dizzy. Despite that have walked in the Great Canyon and stood at precipices when preggo in the silly hope Chip would not inherit the phobia. But he has :(
Q-Quote: The one that adorns my blog. How vain it is to sit down and write when you haven’t stood up to live – Thoreau.
R-Reason to smile: Chip – the product of our supremely flawed selves.
S-Season: Spring. Hate the winter.
T-Tag three people: choxbox, girl-next-door, cee kay
U-Unknown fact about me: There is a reason why it is unknown, you dork.
V-Vegetable you do not like: Dill.
W-Worst habit: Typos. I type too fast and then have to remind myself to proof read.
X-x-rays you have had: Dental and lung.
Y-Your favorite food: Dosa, prolly. I feel like eating it right now and it’s past my lunch hour and I haven’t had lunch. Not a good time to be asking that question.
Z-Zodiac: Taurus
