ABC's of ME

BEVY11951 posted her version of this after finding it on someone else's Spark Page. She stated that she thought this would be a fun way to get to know more about each other and I did enjoy reading hers. In her blog, she suggested that we keep this going. Just use "copy and paste".
Please write your version and then send a request to 5 of your Spark Friends, including yourself, to do the same. If you are unable to complete this request within 24 hours, you will forever receive only 2 points on the "Spark Wheel of Fortune".
Okay, that 2nd paragraph is just my warped sense of humor at 2:43A.M. Of course, it's warped no matter what time of day it is. I just thought that my request to keep it going was sounding a bit like one of those "chain letter e-mails" that you probably love as much as I do. Enough already - "Here's Janie"...

Q= Quote from a movie: "A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they're not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt, even! Play as well as you can. Go team! GO! Give me a "L"! Give me an "I"! Give me a "V"! Give me a "E"! LIVE!... Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room." Ruth Gordon in "Harold and Maude"
