"a" memish sort of thing

i totally grabbed the baton from osbasso:

This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

(my letter was "a", but that should be relatively obvious)

artichoke: my favorite veggie....bring on the garlic/lemon butter and please don't even attempt to engage me in conversation until i'm scraping fuzz off the heart.

avon: i don't wear makeup, but i seem to be able to sell it fairly well. (not well enough to quit any of my jobs, mind you, but i get to stuff a few extra dollars into the bank account every now and then.)

a-ha: "take on me" has always been my favorite song. i'd have it on my myspace profile, but i've been obsessing over the body rockers' singer lately.

agnostic: i'm more ambivalent, i suppose. i don't believe in god, but hey- whatever gets you through the day......

airwalks: in my whole collection, my two favorite pairs of shoes are airwalks. one pair is made out of tennis ball material, and the other pair is made out of purple velvet.

athletic attic: yep- i played al bundy for almost exactly five years. this would be where my tennis shoe habit came from, including several pairs of adidas.

absolut vodka ads: i've been collecting them since i was 15. i'm still looking for the full-sized version of "absolut inxs", but otherwise, i'm pretty satisfied with my collection, which currently sits in protective plastic sleeves in a large 3-ring binder.

antisocial: i've been called this more than once. i'm not good in large crowds of people i don't know, and tend to retreat into my own little corner in such situations. unless the problem is that i'm surrounded by idiots, in which case, i just don't feel like wasting my time on them.

andy: i've dated two guys with this name, and harbored not-so secret crushes on two others. it's a little weird, but i guess maybe it's just a common name.

alaska: one of the very few states i haven't been to yet. the others are texas (airports don't count), montana (hopefully, i'll knock this one off the list next month), idaho, washington, oregon, hawaii, and utah.

is anyone willing to take this on? i promise i won't stick you with "x", though "q" is a distinct possibility. ;~)
