my middle name
Someone has asked me to use the letters of my middle name to list facts about myself. To which I replied, "damn it." But having given it a little more thought, it follows forthwith. In the photo, by the way, Hypocrisy and Vanity refer to my dogs' middle names.
Morning. There is a quote from Thoreau - "morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn within me" - which I wish to amend with "following a period to include at least one entire cup of coffee and a whole host of bodily functions."
Acrostics. This listing with the letters of a word is acrostics. I once wrote a very bad seminar paper in acrostics, and had the good fortune (or was it knowledge) to take a professor who didn't read these papers.
Tull. I've recently been getting back in touch with my progressive/folk rock roots thanks in part to youtube.
Tonsils. Still got 'em.
Haberdasher. I've often thought that if I ever opened a retail business, it should trade in something I can use.
Epicurean. The more I've read about Epicurus the more I think I must be one too. Plus, I've had some coffee called the "epicurean blend" - see "morning" above.
Wiggly. I keep getting distracted by this dog under my feet. Shame on you Wiggly Vanity!
I believe I've covered it, but I'm sure someone will let me know if I've skipped a letter.
