I originally saw this in jayjaybear's LJ and have since seen it elsewhere, and it looked like fun, so here goes:
The First Photos Meme
1. First car:
That's right, an "automatic stickshift" '68 Volkswagen Bug (manufactured in the same month and year I was, actually), given to me by family friends Pat & Lois. It survived for quite a while until I discovered that the oil light didn't work by having it seize up on me on 95 one Sunday afternoon. I ended up selling it to someone who restored them, and for all I know it's still out there running somewhere.
2. Place you grew up
Lovely suburban Aston, Pennsylvania, which as you can see is about halfway between Philadelphia, PA and Wilmington, DE. Since no one ever actually goes to Delaware, I spent a lot of time in Philly. :)
3. Place you live now
Beautiful San Diego, California, baby! This is home now, and this is where Q and I will eventually settle once he gets out of the Navy.
4. Your name
I rather like the image. Maybe that'll be my new desktop. Hmmm...
5. Grandmother's name
My mother's mother, and my only still living grandparent, is named Margaret, and this is a photo of Princess Margaret, who is, as far as I can tell, the real Princess Margaret, and not a pantomime Princess Margaret. ("Pity - we could have saved the Bentley." Name that joke!) My father's mother's name was Clara, but sadly both she and my father's father passed away before I was born.
6. Favorite food
I was going to appease Daniel and Q by just putting up plain old chicken tenders, but I must admit that my craving always goes back to Chik-Fil-A chicken nuggets. Man, these with some waffle fries and their sweet iced tea - hoo, boy! Meal made in heaven for me!
7. Favorite drink
Black tea for me, thank you, and I drink it wonderfully British - lots of sugar, lots of milk. I will try other teas now and then, but my comfort tea is plain ol' Lipton, whilst I enjoy perusing Irish breakfasts, English breakfasts, assams, cinnamon, and others.
8. Favorite song
"Anthem" from the 80's musical "Chess." Perfect for my voice range, and even got to learn it as part of my jury one year as a voice major.
9. Favorite smell
I have a Yankee Candle cinnamon stick housewarmer candle in my room right now. Love it!
10. Favorite pair of shoes ever
My cowboy boots. Bought them new, broke 'em in dancing, and by goodness if they aren't still the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I don't wear them often except when I do decide to go out two-stepping (which is rare these days), but I do love 'em.
