Imitation Is The Sincerest Form...Imitation Is The Sincerest Form...
In part because Modern Fabulousity so generously links to my site on a regular basis, but also because I found his post "ABC's Meme" so interesting, I'm providing a link back and playing copycat with my own version.
I give you the SOB ABC's:
A - Age: Older than I look, but younger than I feel.
B - Band listening to right now: Does the cast of Spring Awakening count as a "band"?
C - Career future: I hope to know more in the next few days.
D - Dad’s name: he goes by Dean, but his real name is Donald.
E - Easiest person to talk to: Esther.
F - Favorite type of shoe: Manolo Blahniks, simply because I like saying the name (and it gets bonus points for being a "Sex And The City" staple).
G – Grapes or Grapefruit: Grapes, preferably red and seedless.
H – Hometown: Depends on how hometown is defined. I grew up in Mequon, Wisconsin. It will always be home to me.
I – Instrumental talent: I used to play the piano.
J – Juice of choice: Pineapple.
K – Koala Bear or Panda Bear: Koala Bear, because I've been able to hold one (you can't hold a panda).
L - Longest car ride ever: Milwaukee to Houston to Washington DC. I never take the obvious route.
M – Middle name: Dean.
N - Number of jobs you’ve had: 19. They included: dishwasher, shopping mall Santa (age 16, seriously), discount department store clerk, high-end retail sales associate, computer draftsman, college student body president, encyclopedia sales, Capitol Hill intern, project assistant to U.S. Senator, regional representative to same U.S. Senator, legislative assistant to same U.S. Senator, lobbyist, state legislator, public relations firm account supervisor, trade association director of public relations, director of communications for same trade association, director of public relations for travel company, senior vice president of big public relations firm and senior director of public relations for same travel company as before. Best: current job. Worst: last job.
O - OCD traits: being able to tell you which U.S. President corresponds with each number (for example, 26 = my personal favorite president in history).
P - Phobias: Claustrophobia, but I've really only experienced it once inside these.
Q - Quote: "If you can't say something good about someone, sit right here by me." (Alice Longworth, daughter of my favorite president in history)

U - Unknown fact about me: There's an actual face attached to my eyes.
