Meme gacked from [ profile] inkandchocolate

A. Age: 59

B. Bed size: queen

C. Chore you hate: cleaning/mopping/vacuuming floors

D. Dogs: Dogs are okay, but I'm basically a cat person. With the kind of work schedule I used to keep, cats could take care of themselves if I got stuck pulling a double or triple shift. Dogs, not so much.

E. Essential start to your day: 1-2 cans of diet cola. That's my caffeine jump start.

F. Favorite color: Autumn tones - rusts, dark and olive green, golden tones

G. Gold or silver: Gold

H. Height: 5’7"-5'8" [depends on who does the measuring]
I. Instruments you play: a lot of them. Not good with brass or bowed strings [violins, etc], but can get through on most else. Was tone percussion in band/orchestra for several years and had 10 years of accordion growing up. Currently just guitar, doumbek, bodhran and a couple of varieties of recorder and penny whistle.

J. Job title: somewhat broken/retired Army vet and civilian health care provider

K. Kids: 1 boy - 28 yo

L. Live: currently in SW Idaho

M. Mom’s name: Dorothy

N. Nicknames: very few actually. "Gato" is my call sign in the Starfleet Marine Corps and I'm known as Rowan in the SCA

O. Overnight hospital stays: 'way too numerous to count, but most were surgical in nature and only a day or so. One 3 month run at VA right after Desert Storm for a bunch of stuff.

P. Pet peeve: folks who talk on their cell phones while driving.

Q. Quote from a movie: ["Independence Day" - The President's briefing before the final attack]
Good morning.

In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind.

"Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation.

We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

R. Right or left handed: right

S. Siblings: 1 sister. We are estranged

T. Time you wake up: between 0830 -1000, depending on when the cats start bugging me

U. Underwear: cotton and comfortable.

V. Vegetables you dislike: I really can't think of one off the top of my head.

W. What makes you run late: usually just me - I cut things too close and get out the door later then I plan

X. X-Rays you’ve had: pretty much my entire body, some parts several times [see 'O' above] along with several CAT scans, MRIs, and a radioisotope body scan and a couple of fluoroscopic exams. But despite it all, I do *not* glow in the dark.

Y. Yummy food you make: not much any more - I'm just cooking for me. But when I can, I bake like a dream.

Z. Zoo: Yep. 'All creatures great and small'.
