A - Age: Yes, I have one.
B - Book you love: The Camerons by Robert Crichton, a saga.
C - Cause(s) you embrace: Breast cancer research, cat protection societies, get-out-the-vote, any wilderness protection, supporting womens shelters, serving meals to the needy, mentoring programs.
D - Dogs' names: Nonexistent and I-Don't-Have-One.
E - Essential start your day item: Coffee bean grinder.
F - Favorite color: I can't pick one. I'm strongly pulled by almost every color.
G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: I bet a woman made up this meme and this stems from an interest in jewelry, which doesn't particularly interest me. But I like warm tones, so I guess gold.
H - Height: Never got any. "Stand up, Limes!" "I am."
I - Instruments you play: Piano, poorly. Tambourine, drunkenly. Upon request: "California Dreamin' ".
J - Job title: Manager.
K - Kid(s): Just the one. I waited the longest, I got the best one!
L - Living arrangements: Owned and managed by Dylan and Virginia Woolf. I keep the roof over our heads, food in our bellies, and litter in their catbox. I've got the better end of the deal. It's been noted, often, that I am difficult.

X - X-rays you've had: Just like that "overnight in the hospital" deal, too many. No more, please!
Y - Yummy food you make: I don't make it, per se, but I prepare it. Sliced cucumbers, dashed with balsamic vinegar and freshly ground sea salt. Every morning of life at 10:00 a.m. "It must be 10:00. I smell her cucumbers."
Z - Zoo favorite: Not anything simian. And yes, you see me below, seated on the rump of a silverback gorilla.
In my ears right now: The abecedarian song, "A, B, C, D, E, F, G . . . . "
Something that charmed me: Friend Willy is a man who likes to learn new things. PhotoShop intrigued him, so he took a short class. He took the one picture of me and delivered it up in so many hilarious ways, I'll never be able to share them all.
