Libertine

Alright, so you see, what I do is I say to myself, 'The alphabet - one word per phonetic letter... go!'
.
Then I think:-
.
Able (Begins with the sound of 'Ay')
Beast
Seascape
Deer
Email
Effervescent
Geothermal
'Aitch'... nope
Eyeline
Jay Cloth... no... Jade
Ceilidh
Elemental
Embrace
Enfold
Opiate
Peter
Queue
Arsenal
Estuary
Teacher
Eucalyptus
Venus
'Double-U'... nope
Exercise
Wyvern
'Zed'... nope
.
Then I get up, and my week begins.
.
That's what I do.

You absolutely MUST NOT sound the H in aitch. Ever!
So at a pinch you could say H- Asia Minor. No?
Good game - I'll try it in bed the next time I can't sleep.

What kind of oddball sounds the H in aitch? Not I, ma'am.

At a pinch you could say H' Asia Minor?... No you b****y well could not!

'E' is a clear winner. Ahead by, well, quite a lot of heads.

You display astonishing self-discipline in the face of a challenge. If I even attempted this, then my week would begin sometime towards tea-time on Thursday.

Double ullow lines?

QueeZ - I quite liked geothermal.
Meanwhile - It was oddly well-adjusted of me to simply forego H, U and Z, but... that was Monday, and today is... Tuesday. Aitch, aitch, aitch...
Huw - Just, just, just... Detention!
