Tell me your troubles and doubts/ Giving me everything inside and out

It's Delurking Day 2009.

There's a logo and everything, so you know it's official.

If you read but don't comment, please stop lurking, come out of the woodwork and make yourself known! (Regular commenters are also welcome to comment, of course).

Don't know what to say? Let's play a game.

srah's delurking game

First commenter, tell us something that you like that starts with A. It could be a food, a song, a place, a thing, an abstract concept - however you interpret it. Next commenter does B, and so on. If we get to Z, we can start over at A. You can comment more than once, but you can't do two consecutive letters of the alphabet. If you're delurking (or even if you're not) and would like to tell us a little more about yourself while you're at it, you're welcome to!

Go!

I was hoping that when you got to Z, you'd start over but using AA through ZZ. I was waiting to jump in on the 27th comment to talk about aardwolves.

Hmmm... Well, my favorite coffee shop in my neighborhood is Aster...

gravatar Elisabeth - January 12, 2009 - 4:24 PM -

I like George H.W. Bush, because I work at his library. He's a nice guy and a good public servant.

Too bad about his turd of a kid, though.

gravatar srah - January 12, 2009 - 4:34 PM -

Carrie Chapman Catt! Now give me all my delicious delicious Scattergories points!

... wait, what are we playing again?

gravatar Lili Zerquera - January 12, 2009 - 5:48 PM -

This is my first time on your site, but I'm happy to delurk.

I think the games is officially at B. I like Blueberry poptarts, but not as much as Strawberry ones.

I also like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cookie Crisp.

We're talking about breakfast foods, right?

gravatar srah - January 12, 2009 - 5:51 PM -

I think the B was for Bush, but what the hey. :)

gravatar jamelah - January 12, 2009 - 6:12 PM -

Are we up to D? I'm going to pretend we're up to D. I like driving.

gravatar Gretchen - January 12, 2009 - 6:14 PM -

Duran Duran!

gravatar Gretchen - January 12, 2009 - 6:15 PM -

Dangit! I knew I stayed on the page too long.
Okay, let's try this again...

Elephants!

gravatar Elisabeth - January 12, 2009 - 6:29 PM -

I was trying to think of something witty or smart, but all I've got is fart noises.

gravatar srah - January 12, 2009 - 7:01 PM -

I'll see your baby making fart noises and raise you another baby making fart noises.

G is for garlic!

gravatar srahdad - January 12, 2009 - 10:56 PM -

I missed out on F and G - I could have used Gerald Ford for either - so I like hockey!

gravatar alfie - January 13, 2009 - 2:14 AM -

I know I'm arriving late and I'm not a lurker, but I like IMAGES of Gerald Ford. Ha! Beat you, Dad!

gravatar Cheryl - January 13, 2009 - 8:23 AM -

Jungles full of monkeys!

gravatar Reid - January 13, 2009 - 9:50 AM -

I am a lurker, and also late. And yet I am sadly just a bit too early to claim to enjoy lateness. K is good though, because I do enjoy knowledge

gravatar allthewine - January 13, 2009 - 2:23 PM -

L is for Lurkers Late to the party?

also Love.

gravatar moe - January 13, 2009 - 7:24 PM -

I like "maybe", useful in so many situations, discovered during the parenting process but other applications being discovered daily! (Wait: can I change that ? also I like midgets but I know that isn't the respectful word for them.)

gravatar alfie - January 13, 2009 - 11:39 PM -

I like Nutella and banana crepes.

gravatar Micah - January 14, 2009 - 2:00 PM -

I'm all about the Ohio State Buckeyes. Go, Bucks!

It feels so nice to tick you off with the above AND take up the "O" slot before an Obamaton could comment. :)

gravatar alfie - January 14, 2009 - 4:16 PM -

Sarah, am I right in thinking that P for you would be "punching Micah in the head?"

gravatar srah - January 14, 2009 - 4:20 PM -

Oh how delightful. I hadn't even been able to think of a P, but that is appropriate. I will accept that as my answer, so you are eligible to do Q if you'd like. Thank you so much.

gravatar Micah - January 14, 2009 - 4:30 PM -

Q is for "Quit it! That hurts! Stop punching me!"

Or, for a serious answer, Queen. The band, not the monarch.

gravatar alfie - January 14, 2009 - 6:05 PM -

R is for me!

gravatar alfie - January 14, 2009 - 6:11 PM -

Or, royalty. Or Royal Canadian Air Farce. Or Rudolph, as in the middle name of our favorite POTUS.

gravatar alfie - January 14, 2009 - 6:27 PM -

Freaking university internet. I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate you, university wireless.

gravatar alfie - January 14, 2009 - 6:43 PM -

I give up.

gravatar cuileann - January 15, 2009 - 1:33 AM -

Snow! The frozen stuff as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers song!

gravatar srah - January 15, 2009 - 7:11 AM -

Twitter!

gravatar Momo Fali - January 15, 2009 - 9:59 AM -

"U"? I get stuck with "U"? I'm going to have to go with underwear. I like underwear. I'm not a commando type girl.

gravatar alfie - January 15, 2009 - 10:39 AM -

Val Kilmer.

gravatar srahdad - January 15, 2009 - 10:41 AM -

W - we like weirdos - isn, that right, Srah?

gravatar srah - January 15, 2009 - 10:56 AM -

Xenophilia!

gravatar jday - January 15, 2009 - 11:17 AM -

"Yellow Sumarine"!!!

gravatar jday - January 15, 2009 - 11:26 AM -

Umm, yeah, "SuBmarine"

gravatar Micah - January 15, 2009 - 2:42 PM -

Zach Galifianakis. Dude's a trip, albeit a twisted one.

gravatar alfie - January 15, 2009 - 3:02 PM -

"It's a bloody AARDVARK!"

gravatar Micah - January 15, 2009 - 3:42 PM -

BB King puts on a great show. I saw him headline a blues festival a few years ago.

gravatar alfie - January 16, 2009 - 1:12 AM -

Dad says CCR. I said CC from 30 Rock.

gravatar srah - January 16, 2009 - 7:10 AM -

You guys really DIDN'T need to start over with AA, BB, CC!

Just to break that, I'm going to say Dinosaur Comics! (Although David Duchovny might be an acceptable DD, right?)

gravatar Micah - January 16, 2009 - 9:33 AM -

Loves me some DDs (and I don't mean a dentist).

Though if you want a less crass answer, I'll also submit Daredevil (DD). I used to read my brother's comics as a kid and the movie adaption wasn't really all *that* bad.

gravatar Micah - January 16, 2009 - 9:37 AM -

Gah! Somehow I missed the second part of your post, srah.

EE...EE...EE...I GOT IT!

Erik Estrada. The best part of last night's "My Name Is Earl" was his guest spot on the "Estrada or Nada" game show.

And I used to watch "CHiPs" as a kid.

gravatar srah - January 16, 2009 - 9:47 AM -

Fan Fiction!

(This is going to get really hard once we get past ZZ.)

gravatar alfie - January 16, 2009 - 9:53 AM -

I love watching the video for GOGI GRANT's "Wayward Wind" with Sarah.

gravatar alfie - January 16, 2009 - 9:54 AM -

Also, triple letters should only get hard after B.

gravatar srah - January 16, 2009 - 10:23 AM -

You must really like car insurance. Or screaming.

gravatar A - January 16, 2009 - 10:29 AM -

I like Happy Hours cause there's cheap food.

I also like myself, as the name I am called starts with the letter A.

gravatar alfie - January 16, 2009 - 2:44 PM -

I am in very real danger of searching out Dr. Seuss's ABC book for this purpose. I have a Triple Z waiting.

gravatar srah - January 16, 2009 - 9:57 PM -

Interesting Ice cream flavors!

gravatar alfie - January 17, 2009 - 1:36 AM -

Jungle Jim's!

gravatar Micah - January 17, 2009 - 10:44 AM -

Krispy Kreme doughnuts, especially when the neon "Hot Now" sign is on in the window.

gravatar mommy - January 17, 2009 - 7:04 PM -

Lois Lane or Lex Luther

gravatar mommy - January 17, 2009 - 7:06 PM -

I have a triple m ready.

gravatar mommy - January 17, 2009 - 7:07 PM -

Morenci, Michigan

I am so very late to this party.

and oh God, here's my nerd past peekign through - Object Oriented Programming :-)

We were at OO, right?

gravatar alfie - January 20, 2009 - 10:06 AM -

Peter Pumpkinhead

gravatar srah - January 20, 2009 - 10:07 AM -

The song or the character? Do you really love Peter Pumpkinhead, or are you just saying things in the room, Brick?

gravatar alfie - January 20, 2009 - 10:08 AM -

Since Mom already flouted your rules on commenting on consectutive letters, I will keep up the family tradition:

Ian Hart as QUIRINUS QUIRRELL

I love lamp.

I don't LOVE it, but it's kind of catchy and it's in my head right now.

gravatar Micah - January 20, 2009 - 11:16 AM -

I really love Rev Run and his Distortion album. It's a nice throwback to the classic Run-DMC sound.

gravatar alfie - January 20, 2009 - 3:36 PM -

Severus Snape!
