Alphabetti spaghetti

20121120-141623.jpgNow I don’t often ‘do’ memes or whatever they’re called (why are they called that anyway, because Its about mememe?) but I was browsing the lovely vintage knitter’s blog and came across the A to Z of Me. I thought, why not? Here’s me….

I is for instruments you play: piano, guitar, recorder…xylophone. Really. I’m trying to get Elder interested. Trying.

Hoping that’s over now.

P is for pet peeves: the inability to seize the day – life is short.

Q is for quote from a movie: they seem to have an open door policy for assholes – Christian Slater in Heathers

R is for right or left hand: i was Right handed, but Parkinson’s allowed me to get much more ambidextrous than I ever anticipated. Win.
