Scattergories

While catching up on my online reading last night I stumbled across this meme at In the Spring it is the Dawn. Take the first letter of your name and use it as the first letter of an answer for each of the following categories. Like Tanabata, I used the initial of my screen name, as using my real initial made it impossible to fill all categories ... or even most of them.

1. Famous singer/band: .................... Crowded House
2. 4 letter word: ............................... Cold!
3. Street name: ................................ Coulter Drive (in Canberra)
4. Color: .......................................... Cerulean
5. Gifts/presents: ............................. Chocolate :-)
6. Vehicle: ....................................... Commodore
7. Things in a souvenir shop: ............ Coffee mugs
8. Boy name: .................................... Charlie
9. Girl name: .................................... Christabel
10. Movie title: ................................ The Castle (Australian classic)
11. Drink: .......................................... Champagne
12. Occupation: ................................ Chemist
13. Flower: ....................................... Carnation
14. Celebrity: ................................... Cindy Crawford
15. Magazine: ................................... Cosmopolitan
16. U.S. city: ..................................... Carson City, Nevada (see what you can learn watching CSI?)
17. Pro sports team: ......................... Crows (Adelaide AFL team)
18. Fruit/vegetable: ......................... Capsicum
19. Reason late for work: .................. Car crash blocking a level crossing (three Cs for the price of one)
20. Something you throw away: ....... Cartons
21. Things you shout: ...................... “Come on, hurry up!”
22. Cartoon character: .................... [Wile E.] Coyote
Okay, I cheated just a little on the last one. Anyone who wants to try this themselves ... feel free.

I was hoping "drink" would be "coffee" with a paragraph explaining Australian coffee ordering because my husband just wrote begging me to please ask one of my Australian friends to tell him how to order a coffee. He's perplexed and says "tall black" works but he's still unsure what he's doing. LOL

I'm not a coffee drinker so I'd be just as clueless!
