Six Vowels and One Consonant

I’ve been tagged three times and this is probably my most random tag yet. This time, I was tagged by Carmen's Blog. Visit Carmen's blog for hair info on Sisterlocks and one of the hottest hair accessories, Tomoka Twists. I should know...I own the Fly Girl Twists by Tomoka Twists.

I searched Google for “seven things” and some how the word vowels was included in the search and I decided that since there are 6 vowels, that will at least get me 90% of the way and I’ll let you take me the other 10%.

So I've given you six random facts using the vowels and I'd like for you to leave a consonant letter in my blog comment and I’ll think of a random fact to go with it.

Here are my random things:
A – Apples
In high school, I took the phrase “apple a day keeps a doctor away” literally. For about 3 months, I think I ate an apple at least once a day if not more. My taste buds just couldn’t get enough of them!
E – Eggs
I have finally been able to duplicate a deviled eggs recipe from one of my favorite restaurants here in Santa Barbara. I can’t spill the beans on the recipe but they are so good!
I – Ice
I almost always have to have water ice cold! I mean REALLY cold!
O – Oven
Oddly enough, I actually got burnt to a crisp the other day by my oven while trying to cook a roast and vegetables. I died and was floating around as a ghost spooking people. Then I had to pay the Grim Reaper $100 to come back to life. In case you haven’t figured it out, I was playing The Sims.
U – Understanding
I have a new hobby…photography and I’m trying to understand aperture and shutter speed. I’m filling my Flickr profile so fast. Want to take a look? Click the images below.

LOL! I actually knew what you were talking about when you mentioned oven and grim reaper.

Yeah, the oven thing freaked me out for a second there too. Glad all is okay!
And congrats on the feature. Great way to start the new year!

Thanks for checking my blog! I've been neglecting it a little...
Have you ever been electrocuted? How about drowning people in your pool?
I know that sounds terrible, but it's possible... err.. in The Sims.

Apples! I love apples and don't quite get as many as you do, but definitely eat 3 or so a week. =) And eggs - it turns out that the secret for me to eat hard boiled eggs is Bacon Salt (www.baconsalt.com) It turns everything delicious - and it's vegetarian!

Thank you for playing. Sims cooking, I thought you really had burnt the food and it was hot in the kitchen. I'm glad it was Sims. Your photos are lovely. What kind of camera are you using?
