I've always kind of thought that I was a peach, but now I have verification. Strange, though. I'm curious to know what others are. Robert? Popeye??

What's Your Monster Name?
[Cat is Basilisk Claw. I like my name better, and my lurky place is sooo cool!]
Congratulations! You are Katherine Parr.
Katherine Parr spent nearly her whole life married to crotchety old men: Henry was the THIRD old fart she was forced to marry. Is it any wonder she turned to books and religion to occupy her time?
Katherine wasn't just smart, she was a tiny bit uppity, too: she almost got herself thrown in jail for arguing with His Royal Fatness about some theological issues. After Henry croaked, Katherine dropped the prim and proper act and married Thomas Seymour, a handsome, dashing pirate kind of guy who was also as dumb as a post.
Which goes to show you that even bookworms know how to get it on.
Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?

[Thanks Cat (also Katherine)]
[A is for age of first kiss:]
[B is for booze of choice:]
I choose not to drink, but, failing that, Blue Moon or Red Stripe (why colors?) beer or top-rail vodka with sour or lemonade
[C is for career:]
My current, I-fell-into-it, "career" is department head, in a libr*ry. That may change. Soon.
[D is for your dad’s name:]
My dad's first name is this guy's last name. However, he has always gone by this nickname.
[E is for essential items to bring to a party:]
My trusty digital camera, & Imitrex (prescription migraine medication). I just never know when I'll need either.
[F is for favorite song at the moment:]
"Someday" by Sugar Ray.
[G is for favorite game:]
I'm trying to train my self not to play games. However, in a pinch...Bounce-Out.
[H is for hometown:]
[I is for instruments you play:]
clarinet (a long, long time ago), and (sorta) piano (and, as Cat said, 'things like 'em')
[J is for jam or jelly you like:]
Raspberry or strawberry jam. Grape jelly.
[K is for kids?]

My mom's name is the same as this lady's.

Mmm, Sleek. ;)
[O is for overnight hospital stays:]
Only when I was born. I'm a remarkably healthy hypochondriac.
[P is for phobias:]
Large and/or menacing dogs. Heights. Dying (how was it again?) "'old, lonely, desperate, and alone.'"
[Q is for quotes you like:]
Anne Lamott is one of my favorite authors, and her writing guide, Bird by Bird, is outstanding. Compulsively readable, funny, and very helpful, I've read it cover to cover twice. I've also copied out several passages that I keep coming back to because they say what I cannot put into words for myself. For instance:
[R is for relationship that lasted the longest]:
I've known my parents for as long as I can remember. They're awesome.
[S is for sexual preference:]
I do quite prefer my life with a sexual aspect to it. And, like Cat, I'll go so far as to state that my unwavering requirement is that it involve adult males (one at a time--and, really, only one) only.
[T is for time you wake up:]
Between 6:50 and 8:50 on the average day. (8:50 on my "late day" at work.) It's difficult for me to sleep later than 8, though. I'm growing up at last.... My parents must be so proud--or feel so vindicated!
[U is for underwear:]
VS only. My vice, for sure. I cannot tell more than that.
[V is for vegetable you love:]
Corn. Were it more convenient, I would eat it every day.
[W is for worst habit:]
I admit to having the Mens rea for homicide, particularly vehicular, regularly.
[X is for x-rays you’ve had:]
Hundreds, literally. Jaw (dental), head (migraine), shoulders (two separate incidents while intoxicated in college), elbow (tennis elbow), wrist and hand (de Quervain's tendonitis), back, each hip, and each foot. That I remember at the moment. There's also a few brain scans, and a 90-minute MRI of my head and neck. I'm probably radioactive.
[Y is for yummy food you make:]
Anything baked--cakes (and I decorate), cookies (friends will attest, I think?), scones, muffins. Lasagna. I make a killer Puerto Rican dish called Chicken Fricasee. I'm also pretty good with simple things like pan-fried steak in garlic butter. Oh, and thin pancakes. (I don't like the thick ones--I like them thin and rubbery. Don't ask me why, it's how it's always been.)
[Z is for zodiac sign:]
Virgo, of course. Don't I come off as the most virginal person ever??
