The solution to the riddle is:
The First provides me with gadgets.
Q provides Bond with gadgets in the film series.
The Second is seven doubled.
Z looks like two 7s put together.
The Third is at the begin of endings.
E is the first letter of "endings".
The Fourth is difficult to differentiate in certain languages.
R is the same sound as L in some languages, such as Japanese.
The Fifth is in the start of every sentence.
T begins every sentence in this riddle.
The Sixth is a question for lazy people.
Y - lazy people ask "why" they have to do something.
The Seventh is not I but.
U - not I but "you".
The Eighth is me.
I am me.
The Ninth is what you will say when you figure it out.
O - when you figure something out, you say, "Oh."
The Tenth can also be before the first and sticks out its tongue.
P looks like a mouth with a tongue sticking out, as in the emoticon :P. Being before the first indicates that this should correspond with 0.
Then the code is:
Each number corresponds with the letter that is its answer (which happens to be that many letters into the first row of a QZERTY keyboard). Using this with the number 084973553 gives PIROUETTE.
