A is for age: Halfway to seventy, baby, as of tomorrow.
B is for breakfast today: Latte (which is what I call my morning ritual of espresso and nuked milk, not sure how legit that is) and a homemade breakfast burrito, which I make ahead in large batches and freeze like the Suzy Homemaker I am.
C is for currently craving: Red velvet cake. Always.
D is for dinner tonight: Going to try the paella for two from Cooking for Two 2009, my current favorite cookbook.

F is for an irrational fear: Two things I worry unnecessarily about are getting caught in a fire and home invasion. Hooray for fear-based media!

H is for hometown: Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, the oldest European settlement in the Midwest.
I is for something important: Health. As long as you've got that, everything else is gravy.
J is for current favorite jam: Raspberry. Blueberry. Rhubarb. I'm a fan. Oh wait, you meant music? I'm not terribly savvy...We Are Young is a fun one. Right now I'm listening to Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 in E Minor. I'm kinda all over the place.
