Memes: V For Victory

No less an authority than Dr. Johnson said it: memes are the last refuge of the overworked. This one has been making the rounds at Facebook and Mark Evanier has done it, so I figure it can’t hurt to post mine here.

The rules are simple. 20 questions. Each answer must start with the same letter as your first name. No repeated answers. If you’re tagged by someone whose name begins with the same letter, you can’t repeat their answers, either.

1. Your name: Vince
2. Four letter word: Vent
3. Boy’s name: Vance
4. Girl’s name: Vivian
5. Occupation: Vintner
6. Color: Violet
7. Something you wear: Vest
8. A food: Vindaloo
9. Something found in the bathroom: Vileness
10. A place: Verona
11. A reason for being late: Vapors (the)
12. Something you shout: “Visigoths!”
13. A movie title: Vanilla Sky
14. Something you drink: Vieux Carre
15. A musical group: Ventures (The)
16. An animal: Vole
17. A street name: Vine
18. A type of car: Volkswagen
19. A song title: Veronica, by Elvis Costello
20. A verb: Vivisect

No tags, but if your name also begins with V, let’s see what you’ve got.
