Tag! You're It

So for the first time in my blogging career, I've been "tagged" (thank you, Woodrow, for being my first*). To be entirely honest, until now I thought "tagging" was a polite way of saying you'd just been shot by a paintball gun.

And before any of you ask: yes, I should be busy cleaning and unpacking. That's precisely why I didn't delay on this tagging opportunity.

A-Available or Single? Neither.
B-Best Friend: I'm lucky to have a few of these.
C-Cake or Pie: I'm generally not fond of either, though I will occasionally indulge in freshly-baked pie or chocolate cake... though secretly all I really want is the icing [Stop grimacing, it's unattractive.]
D-Drink of Choice: Strawberry lemonade with real strawberries. Or are we talking alcoholic here? In which case I like any sweet, mixed drinks in small quantities.
E-Essential Item(s): A good bike, a backpack stuffed with essentials (including a compass, and a map), and LOTS of water.
F- Favorite Color(s): Burgundy, burnt orange, sky blue
G- Gummi Bears or Worms?: Worms? Or gummy worms? Because a worm without "gummy" is just gross... unless you are a fish.
H- Hometown: Can I just say the eastern half of the Midwest?
I- Indulgence: Silly t-shirts, bags (purses, backpacks, messenger bags, you name it), long naps
J- January or February: February... still enough snow for snowshoeing, but with the imminent promise of spring.
K- Kids: Does an obnoxious little cat count? No kids, though I get a kick out of playing with them.
L- Life is incomplete without: A puzzle is incomplete if any piece is missing. I can't expect anything less from life (though, for the record, I could do without mosquitoes, and I really dig smart comedy).
M- Marriage Date: October 7, 2006 in a private ceremony. Just kidding. Calm down, Mom. Never been married.
N- Number of Siblings: 2
O- Oranges or Apples? I like 'em both. But I REALLY love clementines.
P- Phobias/Fears: I enjoy camping and don't mind getting covered in mud, or making nature my restroom. But throw me into a dirty bathroom at a public place, and I get all sweaty and anxious.
Q- Favorite Quote: The first that comes to mind is Woody Allen: "I don't wish to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve immortality by not dying."
R- Reasons to smile:The smell of burning leaves, road trips through rural America, hiking new terrain, reaching peaks, traveling with friends, spoiling my nephews.
S- Season: Autumn
T- Tag Three: Winter, XOXO and Michele
U- Unknown Fact About Me: I always say I don't watch much television, but I secretly love old reruns (Munsters, Diff'rent Strokes, etc.)
V– Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Neither. I haven't eaten red meat or pork in years. I grew up states away from good seafood (unless you like fried catfish — yuck), so I never got into that. But I need to get my protein from somewhere other than just Boca Burgers, so I occasionally indulge on chicken. More than you ever wanted to know, right?
W- Worst Habit(s): Sure, I'm a jokster. But I can also be quite the loner. A terrible combination which results in some folks thinking I'm off my rocker.
X– X-rays or Ultrasounds? I prefer to stay uninjured. Thanks.
Y- Your Favorite Foods: Good chicken parmesan, butternut squash ravioli with a sweet vinaigrette sauce, anything with blueberries
Z- Zodiac: Pisces

*But not that kind of "first"

You prefer to stay uninjured but... (Sorry, had to.) I don't think you took this survey seriously. Good for you. Clementines? Really? Hmmm.

You got married and didn't invite me?!?! No fondue set for YOU! *laughs*

Thanks for not tagging me. I guess it is good I don't have a blog here. :)

XOXO - Anytime! :)

BPP - Trust me. If you had a blog here, you would've been tagged.

And... I try to not take anything too seriously, including surveys. I try to have fun with them, though my answers were honest.

We already knew all that stuff about you, except for the clementines.
