A - Z Meme.

A – Accent: Depends on circumstances. I have a tendency to adopt the accents of the company I'm in, and I've been unfairly accused of taking the mickey in the past. My "usual" accent is from central southern England, the land of Oxford University and the BBC, and I can ham it up and become very British if, for example, I'm cross and dealing with a thick US retailer.
B - Breast size: Oh yes. In fact, size in general, if that's possible.
C - Chore you hate: Paperwork.
D - Dad's name: Derek.
E - Essential make-up item: Cotton buds.
F - Favorite scent: Beef.
G - Gold or silver: Gold has more resistance to corrosion, silver is the better conductor. What am I building?
H - Hometown: Born in Milton, Cambridgeshire -- Grew up in Hampton/Hanworth/Feltham, West London.
I - Insomnia: Sometimes. It's infrequent, but when it strikes it tends to last several nights.
J - Job title: We don't do titles. If I had one, it would be "Computer Network Engineer" or something similar.
K - Kids: Not mine, thank god. I can stand someone else's for short periods -- two or three minutes, perhaps. The boss's kids like me, no idea why.
L - Living arrangements: I've shared the house with the stepson since my wife died. I'm working on getting my girlfriend moved in.
M - Mum's birthplace: Mill Hill, in north London.
N - Number of apples you've eaten: More in pies and crumbles than in their native format.
O - Overnight hospital stays: As a patient, three separate occasions -- once for removal of tonsils and twice for removal of a haemangeoma in my right hand. It's still there.
P - Phobia: The one I've discussed most recently is the use of sharp edges in BDSM play.
R - Religious affiliation: Christian -- at home in most denominational backgrounds but nonconformist/reformed by tradition.
S - Siblings: Three brothers. All insane, only one clinically so.
T - Time you wake up: Typically about a third of the way into the working day. Well after I've arrived at the client site.
U - Unnatural hair colors you've worn: None.
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat: Broccoli, raw tomato.
W - Worst habit: Chewing fingernails, telling bad jokes.
X - X-rays: One occasion, two x-rays. Nothing was broken.
Y - Yummy foods you make: Most of them. Rare fried steak with mushrooms. Apple crumble.
Z - Zodiac sign: No idea. September 27th. You care more than I do. Chinese Year of the Snake.
