A to Z

It had been a long while since I did a meme and Janna Qualman tagged me with this A to Z one so I thought what the heck. Be sure and check out her blog, she has an interesting post up now about Marilyn Monroe's reading habits.

A to Z All About Me

A-Attached or Single? Married for nearly 11 years ans yes, she is up for sainthood.

B-Best Friend? See above, but actually I'm blessed to have many good friends. As far as defining what makes a best friend I like the old story about ... A best friend is not someone who will bail you out a jail, a best friends is sitting int he cell right beside you.

C-Cake or Pie? Coconut Cream Pie

D-Day of Choice? Any I don't have to go to work, but really a day is what you make it and I don't have any preference for one of another.

E-Essential Items? For what? Depends what I'm doing. For life in general I'd say a loving supporting spouse, a good fishing pole, a steady supply of reading material, and plenty of tasty meat to eat.

F-Favorite Color? Black. It does away with all that pesky color coordinating required when you get dressed.

G-Gummy Bears or Worms? Worms. But don't get them confused with the plastic scent impregnated ones in your tackle back. Those things taste horrible.

H-Hometown? Amarillo, Texas. Unless this is your first time here you should know that since I've been doing the My Town Monday thing for months now.

I-Indulgence? Gambling. If I ever end up living under an overpass or holding up a cardboard sign for sustenance it will be because I wagered one too many times.

J-January or July? I'm more of a January guy. You can always put more clothes on but you can only take so much off.

K-Kids? Two boys. 5 and 7

L-Life isn’t complete without… Laughter

M-Marriage Date? October 25, 1997

N-Number of Siblings? One brother.

O-Oranges or Apples? I tend to shun all fruits and vegetables but I can eat an apple if it's covered in caramel, especially if you add pinon nuts.

P-Phobias or Fears? I'm not big on caves. I'm afraid they'll write a sequel to Bog John titled Big Trav

Q-Quote? If we're not supposed to eat animals, how come they're made of meat? ~ Tom Snyder

R-Reason to Smile? My theory is smile all the time, that way no one realizes when you are plotting against them.

S-Superman or Wonder Woman? Those are my only choices?

T-Tag 5 people. I tried to do this but I'm not all that agile and every time I ran after someone they took off and locked the doors. one lady even called the police, but through her screen door she did say, "Aren't you a little too old to be playing tag?"

U- Umbrella or poncho? Poncho. You can't catch fish while holding an umbrella in one hand.

V-Vegetables? Keep the devils away from me.

W-Worst Habit? I'll answer this later ... no seriously it is Procrastination

X-Ray or Ultrasound? I've had both and either is okay. I just can't do the MRI thing since the giant magnet would rip out the metal plate in my leg.

Y-Your Favorite Food? Marinated Elk tenderloin

Z-Zodiac Sign? Sagittarius

Play along if you wish.

Marinated Elk tenderloin...

Now there's one you don't hear very often. I may have to try that. I just have to catch myself an elk first.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I love your reason to smile!

Bea said...

And he does smile all the time!
Loved these. You certainly learn a lot about folks this way!

ChrisEldin said...

LOL--Elk tenderloin isn't on many menus!

Charles Gramlich said...

Great quote from Snyder. Amazingly accurate as well. I'm off to find some meat myself.

F-Favorite Color? Black. It does away with all that pesky color coordinating required when you get dressed.

Yeah. So I hate to break it to you, but there are different blacks.

But, dude, tag in the hotel hallways at Colorado Gold Conference? I'm in.

Stephen Parrish said...

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that L wasn't for lettuce.

Elk are people too!

I wonder if there are women who don't eat fruit or vegs. Do we somehow pass on the idea this is girly good to our sons?
Nice knowing you better, Travis.

P.S. Are you going to remember a kid's book for me next Friday? It can just be a few lines.

I've been thinking about going with black clothing too. My husband is a very snazzy dresser but I'm a little lazy (or just chronically tired) and tend to stand in front of my closet for the longest time trying figure out what outfit will make me look ten years younger and ten pounds lighter:)

Janna Qualman said...

Great answers! I especially loved E, G and Q. Thanks for playing along, and for the kind comment about my blog. :)

PS. If your wife figures out how to get you to eat your veggies, have her pass the tip on to me, okay? ;)
