A-Z gacked from ladymoonray:

B - Born on what day of the week? Sunday.
C - Chore you hate? Cleaning toilets. Would rather go to the dentist.
D - Dad's name? Roy.
E - Essential makeup item? I'm allergic to almost all makeup. Can't brush my hair without conditioner, if that counts.
F - Favorite actor? John Cassavetes.
G - Gold or silver? Silver, except sometimes in my ears where I'm allergic to anything that tarnishes.
H - Hometown? Washington, DC.
I - Instruments you play? Piano, recorder, a bit of guitar.
J - Job title? Freelance writer.
K - Kids? Two.
L - Living arrangements? Townhouse with husband, kids, two cats.

Q - Quote you like? "Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace." -- Amelia Earhart
R - Religious affiliation? Jewitch.
S - Siblings? One younger sister.
T - Time you wake up? On an ideal day, between 9-10 a.m. Ideal days are very rare.
U - Unique habit? Pulling a random Tarot card out of a deck to help unblock creative writing.
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat? Broccoli. Much as it pains me to have anything in common with George Bush, he's right about this one thing.
W - Worst habit? Procrastination.
X - X-rays you've had? Teeth. I had ultrasounds when pregnant but I don't think I've ever had another x-ray.
Y - Yummy food you make? Kraft Macaroni and Cheese right out of the box.
Z - Zodiac Sign? Sagittarius.

untitled06 pointed me to this interview with Alfonso Cuaron on marginalia's page. Put a big smile on my face: "The evil Voldemort is very similar to Saddam Hussein. Or George Bush. They're really the same. I believe George Bush and Saddam Hussein should go to a desert island together and relax. It would be a love affair, like in Y Tu Mamá También. And then there would be no war." (Maybe I will not doze off during repeat viewing of third Harry Potter movie as I almost did during second.)

And frabjous day, a quiz from ldybastet:

You are Sir Robin, a knight on the quest for the
Holy Grail. You are very passive and cowardly
though you deny being so, and are accompanied
by a troop of annoying minstrels who are later
eaten (with much rejoicing).
Which Monty Python's Quest For the Holy Grail
character are you?
