It's been a long time since I've done a meme, but I agree with my friend "Ewe" over at Day by Day, At Home, Away that this one is fun. And it's my birthday. So I'm indulging myself. And I feel the need to do something youthful. Like the ABCs.

Overnight Hospital Stay Other than Birth: Is that being born or giving birth? None others that I know of. I almost spent the night in Baguio City in the Philippines. I was there from 8am until 11pm and slept the whole day. Does that count?
Pet Peeve: The many misuse's of apostrophe's in word's written in the text's of document's, perpetuated by the stupidity of Microsoft's' inane grammar check function.
Quote from a Movie: "You are a murderer of love!" from Dan in Real Life, and "Hi, I'm Harold Crick, her main character," from Stranger Than Fiction. Also, from the same movie, "Wait. Did you just say 'Little did he know'?"
