The Alphabet Meme

I've been tagged! Fellow BARBARian Tom at If I Ran the Zoo tagged me with this meme. Like to hear it, here it go:

Accent: Bay Area California (whatever that sounds like).

Booze: I'm currently obsessed with the Sidecar (preferably made with Meyer lemons).

Chore I Hate: Cleaning the bathroom, specifically, the toilet. I totally gag.

Dog or Cat: I am a total dog lover. Some cats, like Sumo, are cool. Except they make me sneeze.

Essential Electronics: iPod (when it works).

Favorite Cologne: I don't wear cologne, I wear perfume. And I'm not telling you.

Gold or Silver: Gold.

Hometown: I was born in San Francisco, CA.

Insomnia: Occasionally.

Job Title: In flux, actually.

Kids: None. Unless you count my inner child, with whom I am often in touch.

Living Arrangements: Apartment.

Most Admirable Traits: I've been told that I make people feel comfortable when they're around me, I have a kick-ass sense of humor, and I'm a great listener.

Number of Sexual Partners: You mean right now? Or of all time?

Overnight Hospital Stays: I think I did once at 5, when I had to have a blood transfusion (courtesy of Dad), because my nose was bleeding way too much.

Phobias: Rats, hair in my food, beets.

Quote: “Character is what you do when you think no one is looking.” (Thanks, Virge!)

Religion: Catholic. Don't judge me!

Siblings: Only child. Don't judge me!

Time I Wake Up: Weekdays: 7:30 a.m. Weekends: 9-10 a.m., or earlier, if my cousin calls me.

Unusual Talent or Skill: I have this bizarre intuition that compels me to look at someone right as they're about to hock a loogie. That, and my gag reflex is entirely absent. Just kidding.

Vegetable I Love: Artichokes.

Worst Habit: Cigarettes.

X-Rays: I've had a few, especially during high school. (Tennis team.)

Yummy Foods I Make: I make a damn fine cheesecake. And fruit crumble. Basically, I kick ass with desserts.

Zodiac Sign: Capricorn, Year of the Rat.

I guess this means I have to tag people, so I choose:

So one person's favorite vegetable is another person's phobia, eh?

By the way, what's in a Sidecar?

Tom: I saw that beets are your favorite! I just can't eat them, they freak me out. They're so ... fuschia.

A sidecar, if I remember correctly, is a shaken concoction of brandy, triple sec, and Lemon, served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass.

My co-worker makes them with Meyer lemons when they're in season. I think the best one I had was at Luna Park one night. Also, there's some small-plate restaurant on Market in the Castro (I forget the name now, it's new) that serves up deadly ones.

One word: Yum.

I think you can upgrade them a little to cognac and some other things, and then the Meyer lemon is an upgrade too ... try one next time you go out - they're a little more gentle than say, a Maker's Mark Manhattan.

hair in food is the grossest.
