It’s meme time again, kids! Here’s “Me From A to Z”, courtesy of TD.

A – Animals/Pets: Four goldfish, all named after Star Wars characters (Admiral Ackbar, Porkins, Aurra Sing, and Grand Moff Tarkin). Unfortunately Salacious Crumb, our snail, died last week. *sniff*
B – Best Friend: Snookums. I’m not just saying that to be cute, either.
C – Cohabitants: Snookums and the fish.
D – Desire(s): To get paid well for doing stuff I like. To get fit and lose some weight.
E – Eye Color: Brown.
F – Favorite Food(s): French fries, risotto, Thai green curry, my Aunt Berb’s chicken and dumplings, cheesecake. (Basically, if it’s fattening, I love it.)
G – Games: Ms. Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros. 1-3, euchre, Trivial Pursuit, JewelToy.
H – Habit(s): Clenching my jaw and squinching up my forehead when I’m concentrating (Snookums calls it my “constipation face”), cracking my knuckles, quoting Pride and Prejudice.
I – Interests: Blogging, quilting, watching TV, reading, baking, Roald Dahl.
J – Job: After nearly eight months of unemployment, currently contracting as a web designer and developer.
K – Kitchen (Wonder or Blunder?): Somewhere in the middle. I’m good at some things, but others I really have to work at. I can generally produce edible, non-poisonous fare, though.
L – Languages: English (American, UK, and Australian varieties), German (conversational), and a smattering of Korean.
M – Most Valued Possession(s) (an item, not people/pets): My iBook. That sounds cold, but I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it. It’s my connection to the world.
N – Name (Named after?): Kristine Michelle. The unusual spelling of my first name was apparently inspired by my mom’s best friend.
O – Outfit You Love: I don’t really *do* outfits. I like jeans, T-shirts, and sneakers.
P – Pizza Toppings: Meat (any and all), onions, green peppers.
Q – Question Asked To You the Most: “Do you have a job yet?”
R – Relationship/Partner: The Snook and I celebrated our two-year anniversary last April. My Australian Permanent Residency was granted on the basis of us being in a “defacto” marriage, but as far as actual ceremonies go, my ring finger is still unadorned.
S – Sport: Currently limited to running and working out at the gym.
T – Television Show(s): Friends, Malcolm in the Middle, Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, Buffy, Days of Our Lives.
U – Unsavory characteristic(s): Tendency towards inertia (staying home and being lazy), never answering e-mails, whinging.
V – Video (Favorites): Pride and Prejudice, Office Space, Clueless, The Stand, Mallrats, A Christmas Story.
W – Webpage (Favorite–not your own): Ahh, too many to list. The ones on my home page are the ones I visit every single day.
X – Xylophone (or other Instrument?): I used to play the trumpet, but it’s been years since I touched one.
Y – Year Born: 1977, the year of Star Wars.
Z – Zodiac Sign: Pisces. It suits me.

  1. Six Feet Under. Whats it about? I think its starting in the UK soon and I was reading about it in NYC.

  2. I saw some of it the other night. Looks pretty good. US dramas are ruling the roost at present and this one has dark humour and inter-racial, homosexual bits. Mary Whitehouse will be turning in her grave. Perhaps they could exhume her in one episode to get her opinion. Is this mainstream in the US? I hope so.

  3. Nah, it’s on HBO. All the best shows are on cable, so they can swear and show boobies. Six Feet Under is about a family that run a funeral home. They’re all f’ed up. It’s great. Yeah, the gayness and inter-racial aspect is heavy in the first couple episodes (just to get the shock over with, I think) but it doesn’t end up being the center of the show. (Although it should – Keith is HOT.) You also don’t get as much of Peter Krause’s ass (*sigh*) after those first few episodes. Anyway, I recommend it a lot. Definitely give it a try anyway.

    Martin, you’re back! How was your trip?

  4. Trip was good.

    Haven’t written anything about it yet as have loads of work to do and jetlag ain’t helping. I need the weekend to reset properly as I had the bright idea of coming straight to work after the flight back D’oh!

    Got some cool piccies, some of which are on digital but I have a scanner so the rest ain’t far behind.

    NYC just does not look the same in profile anymore 🙁

    Spent shed loads whilst there and also brought a cool little MP3 player. Only holds 64meg but is dead small and the PC equivalent of the iPod was dead ugly so no chance of me buying that.

  5. Hang on 1: Just realised your pet names. How sad is the fact that I know who you’re referring to with all of them?

    Hang on 2: You had a pet snail?!?!?

  6. Some third party developer just released code to allow Windoze users to access iPod! You should’ve gotten that. iPods are dead sexy. 🙂

    It was a little aquatic snail. I think you’d call it a winkle or something. He went in with the fish. But he didn’t like something in there, and suddenly he turned black and started floating. Not good.
