I've been tagged

In the spirit of good, clean fun (and because it's the first time it's happened) I have been tagged - and have responded. Thanks, SkiGirl, for tossing down the challenge.

Here goes:

A – Available/Single? – Let’s chat in six to eight months, shall we?
B – Best Friend? – Jason, because he understands me best – and knows when to listen and when to kick me in the ass.
C – Cake or Pie? – Pie; key lime.
D – Drink Of Choice? – Espresso coffee, done right (usually an Americano, but I have to say that starting today, I have begun to put aside something each month to buy my own espresso machine) and whiskey (Bulleit Frontier Whiskey or Rebel Yell Bourbon) with just a splash of water. Yeah, I’m a man’s man. Man.
E – Essential Item You Use Everyday? – Reporter’s notebook, pencil, laptop (kind of a combo thing).
F – Favourite Colour? – Ahhhh, shades of green. For eyes, whom I'm attracted to (this is a rip-off from SkiGirl) – hazel.
G – Gummy Bears Or Worms? – Gummy bears (the pineapple ones are the ones I like the best).
H – Hometown? – Not much left for me there; that’s why the town that I live in now feels more like home than home. Wish dad would move out.
I – Indulgence? – Oakley sunglasses (expensive), RockStar Energy Drinks (not so expensive).
J – January Or February? – January, because it’s a whole new ballgame.
K – Kids & Their Names? – Hmmm, another tough one; two (stepchildren) who I love with all my heart (Cody and Jessica).
L – Life Is Incomplete Without? – Someone special with which to share it (and maybe a fine cigar - an Arturo Fuente Hemingway, perhaps).
M – Marriage date? – March 29; we almost made it to another anniversary and that sorrows my heart something fierce (because it didn’t need to end).
N – Number Of Siblings? – Four.
O – Oranges Or Apples? – Oranges.
P – Phobias/Fears? – I have an irrational fear of losing an appendage; when I go through a yellow light in the truck, I tap the roof (no, I don’t know why I do it, but I’ve done it since I got behind the wheel of a car).
Q – Favourite Quote? – “Never wear your best trousers when you go out to fight for freedom and truth.” (Henrik Ibsen).
R – Reason to Smile? – Most everything is a reason to smile, because if you can’t smile, if you can’t laugh, then you’re not much of a human being. Even when I get most pessimistic, I can always find something that makes me smile. Life’s kinda funny that way.
S – Season? Spring, especially in Northern California. Sleeping with the windows open, kayaking at Whiskeytown Lake, taking an epic mountain bike ride (nearly any direction from my house), walking along the Sacramento River Trail and spreading the maps out to plan a summer backpacking trek.
T – Tag people? – Jason, Stevo, RachelRenae (gotta share the fun).
U – Unknown Fact About Me? – I sometimes pee in the bathroom sink (and reserve the right to explain why).
V – Vegetable you don’t like? – Eggplant
W – Worst Habit? – Trying to be perfect all the time.
X – X–rays You’ve Had? – I believe the only thing I haven’t had X–rayed … no, well, come to think of it, I had that X–rayed, too.
Y – Your Favourite Food(s)? – Panag curry, medium–rare ribeye steak (bone–in, at least two inches thick), tekka maki rolls (with warm sake), fresh–caught brook trout cooked over a campfire, Buffalo chicken wings (medium–hot and in moderation).
Z – Zodiac Sign? – Western Horoscope – Pisces; Chinese – Rabbit (and I’m mildly amused by all of it).

Oh come on...you cannot tell us that " I sometimes pee in the bathroom sink" and not tell us why.

Thanks for entering into the spirit!
