Middle Name Meme

I have personally been tagged, for the very first time, on a meme.
(I feel as if the popular kids have let me sit at their lunch room table.)

1.You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2.You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3.At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)

I have no middle name, per se, I have a confirmation name, Cecilia, and a fake middle name I gave myself temporarily in my teens, Alix.

Alix would be easier, fewer letters, except for that blasted "X". So, Cecilia, it is.

C urmudgeonly
E xercise-phobic
C razy-goofy in love with Himself (this is not egocentricity, "Himself" is a [perhaps faux?] Irish idiom for the head of the household, and is my husband's nickname)
I tchy (what can I say, I suffer from a skin disease...)
L azy
I nterested in a wide variety of subjects
A pt to go off half-cocked since my knowledge is often shallow but that does not stop me from forming opinions and expressing them... at times my life seems one long opportunity for apology.

I don't know that this blog is read widely enough for me to successfully tag 7 people, but here goes --

I think I can handle this one because it's not too exalted.

I'm with you, Mary Jane... btw, you should read jason's post to this meme on the Christus Vincit site... very interesting!

OK... I finally posted my reply, although I had a really hard time finding something that began with a 'Y'... Janet.
