Alphabet meme

A: Accent – Rather odd. English people can usually tell I’m Irish, though few manage to identify my Belfast upbringing. On the other hand Denis Donaldson, recently unmasked British agent within Sinn Fein, accused me of having an upper class English accent. (I told him he should get out more. Which was a bit unfair of me, given his bail conditions.)

B: Breakfast – If I make time for it, poached egg on toast. If in New York I always try and make sure I have a decent New York breakfast (since my body clock thinks it’s lunchtime).

C: Chore you hate – All of them. Especially cleaning the toilet.

D: Dad’s name – John.

E: Essential everyday item – Slippers.

F: Flavour ice cream – Mint chocolate chip.
