The Alphabet Game

So Tania Elizabeth, owner of Varekai, invited me to participate in the latest little blogging game. And who am I to say no?

Here are my 26 choices, alphabetized:

A: Attached or Single:¬†Attached, I suppose ūüôā
B: Best Friends: A precious few. Maybe just the one, really, but I know of some people who really have my back, so I’m a lucky woman regardless.
C: Cake or Pie:¬†count me a provincial European, but I still don’t know the difference. I’ll have appeltaart any day, though. It’s my favourite. The next best one is rijstevlaai.
D: Day of Choice: Sundays.
E: Essential Item:¬†my laptop. Although I make a point of having unplugged holidays (and love them), I’m growing more dependent on the little box now that the rest of my life is in boxes. Must have cat pictures!
F: Favorite Color: purple
G: Gummy  Bears or Worms: worms, because the bers are just so tiny you need to eat six of them at a time.
H: Hometown:¬†Suburbitown, Suburbia, pretty much. 70’s brick and concrete housing, labrador retrievers and kiddie bikes.
I: Favorite Indulgence: chocolate, cheese, whisky.
J: January or July:¬†July, because it’s when all the other people leave and I can have a little space. Also, long, long evenings filled with light and barbecues.
K: Kids:¬†Nope. It’s interesting to see how the people around me are starting to work towards becoming parents and how strong te desire for children can be. I’ve seen parental love up close and it is a magical force that I admire. Still, I consider myself child free and can be a little defensive about it if I feel that people don’t accept that.
L: Life Isn’t Complete Without:¬†Travel. Walks. Books. Talks.
M: Marriage Date: November 25.
N: Number of Handbags: zero. I have a ratty messenger bag,¬†affectionally¬†called ‘The Magic Bag’ (because it contains everything and always has room for more). I should find a replacement soon.
O: Oranges or Apples:¬†apples. They’re easy and so tasty.
P: Phobias: spiders. Things with too many legs that move too fast for their size.
Q: Quote: “If writings did not exist, what terrible depressions we should suffer.” Nagiko – The Pillow Book
R: Reason to Smile: dogs playing.
S: Season of Choice: spring – the first day you no longer need a coat.
T: Tag 5 People: Logeerbuik, Fading gender, USherewecome, Foxes in sockses, eh..
U: Unknown Fact About Me: I’m allergic to certain non-precious metals.
V: Vegetable: spinach. When lazy and alone my dinner just consist of heated frozen spinach with a little cream cheese and fine herbs.
W: Worst Habit: nervous fretting, overanalyzing, anxious pacing and other neurotic behavior.
X: X-ray or Ultrasound: only had the one X-ray in my life, to check for tuberculosis.
Y: Your Favorite Food: vegetarian burrito bowls, pulled chicken, home made vegetarian lasagna.
Z: Zodiac Sign: gemini / pig (water).
