I kinda stole this meme --that didn't start as a meme -- from Angela and Deb. You gotta answer each question with the first letter of your name.
Your name: Starts with a D, think D-Nice, D-licious and so forth

Something an astronaut would study: uh, diagnostics of the chromospheric excitation balance in cool dwarfs -- I dunno . . .
Eight-letter word: delights
A sports team (any sport): Ducks of Anaheim
A character in movie or play: D'Artagnan, the fourth musketeer, which incidentally would have been my name if I were born a boy. I suggested the name when I was pregnant, both times. Maya, had she been a boy, would have gotten the name. Husband said -- and I'm paraphrasing, OHHELLNO to the name if Mina had been a boy. I was built to raise great women anyway.
A nickname (or endearment) for someone you like: DookieStick. We call Maya this sometimes. Mina we'd call RaeRae. So, it was RaeRae and Dookiestick, which we completely stole from a Method Man interview. That's what he calls his kids. But then a friend had a baby named Rae and we had to call her RaeRae instead. We call Mina Buttabutt instead now.
