Ok, this is pretty lame, but it's the easiest meme I've seen in a while. And by doing it, I'm probably pretty lame too... Damn... I hate it when I'm lame.

A - Age: 23. Or 4 if you ask The Girl
B - Band listening to right now: Manchester Orchestra. No they're not an actual orchestra and they're my favourite new discovery. (Listen to Where Have You Been? It's super cool.)
C - Career future: Self employed bazillionaire.
D - Dad’s name: Rob. Or Dad.
E - Easiest person to talk to: The Girl
F - Favorite type of shoe: A pair of DVS's I used to own that aren't made anymore. Or Vans slip-ons.
G – Grapes or Grapefruit: Grapes. Provided they've been peeled for me. Oh and they have to be seedless.
H – Hometown: Secret Location. A quaint NSW country town on the banks of a river.
I – Instrumental talent: Guitar. And a tiny bit of piano. Also FL Studio for electronic stuff.
J – Juice of choice: Apple, Orange, Celery, Carrot and Ginger.
K – Koala Bear or Panda Bear: Panda Bear. Because there's no such thing as a Koala BEAR. Sort it out, rest of the world... Geez.
L - Longest car ride ever: Hometown to Hervey Bay, QLD... Can't even remember how many hours. More than 10.
M – Middle name: Can't say... It would be instantly recognisable to anyone who might know me in the real world.
N - Number of jobs you’ve had: 10. Including part time supermarket gigs in high school.
O- OCD traits: Randomly highlighting text on screen as I read things. Anyone who is near me when I use a computer gets so pissed off with me doing this. Which is bad as I'm the IT contact at work.
P - Phobia[s]: None I can think of.
Q - Quote: At the moment: "... I live in a part of London, which for most of the time is on fire." James May.
R - Reason to smile: Umm... Happy things. Heaps of stuff. I don't like this question. There's my answer: Not this question.
S - Song you sang last: 'Where Have You Been?" - Manchester Orchestra. Albeit quietly while The Girl was having a shower.
T - Time you wake up: 6.40am
U - Unknown fact about me: When I was a tiny child I once ate dog poo. It was old and white but when my mum found me it had reconstituted to a brown sludge in my mouth, apparently. Gross. Don't hold this against me.
V - Vegetable you hate: Mushrooms. Mushrooms are the pubes of Satan.
W - Worst habit: Aforementioned text highlighting. Or leaving out important parts of what I'm saying to someone and giving them a seemingly unrelated bunch of words.
X - X-rays you’ve had: 2. Ankles. Ouch.
Y - Yummiest food my belly likes: Anything not containing mushrooms. Especially good Thai.
Z - Zodiac sign: Cancer

I'm not tagging anyone as I don't want you to feel obligated to participate in the lameness. But if you do have a go, let me know so I can see your ABC's.

I'm new to this blogging game, but I think etiquette dictates I should identify my source. So, I found this meme lurking over here.

Bed time now. Need sleeps.

Intriguing that your name should be so easily identifiable. We should have a competition to name you, but it's probably blasphemous to call a blogger Mohammad, so to avoid an unnecessary stoning, that wouldn't be allowed.

And you drink celery juice? Eww.

Lol, I also highlight text when I'm reading it too, drives people mad. Nice to know I'm not the only one.

FD: Sure, I'd be open to names, provided they weren't mean and nasty ones like Chadwick or something.
And unless you want to be detained by any religious fundamentalists any deity names should be avoided.

I drink celery juice, but only mixed with all the other juices, it's good! Try it!

Random Lurker:
Hi! I don't know anyone else that does the text highlighting thing! Feel free to come back and don't be shy. Just don't highlight my text while you're reading it, that's my turf!
