Life, via List

January 30, 2009

So, to begin with, facts about me:

  1. I work at the library.  I like books.
  2. I am also an actor, a director, and (sort of) a writer.  More on that later.
  3. My bike ride to work everyday is one of the best parts of my day.
  4. People with actually nice road bikes zooming past me on my Huffy Superia is one of the worst parts of my day.
  5. This is a picture of a Huffy somewhat similar to mine.  Mine is not pink, but blue.  The greasy man in the photograph, however, is not somewhat similar me.  Not at all.  But he does look a little like my brother in high school.
  6. I have the most wonderful wife in the world.  She has a blog too!  Much better than mine.  You can find it here.
  7. I am newly obsessed with cooking.  Having a real kitchen will do that, apparently.  Be my friend, and I will invite you over for dinner.
  8. Someday, I will be like this man.
  9. I have a sort of strange allergy, in which at certain parts of the year, when I first wake up in morning I sneeze, very hard, 5 or 6 times, and then never again for the rest of the day.  I am currently not experiencing symptoms.
  10. I own a tiny a scooter which is possessed by four or five demons at least, and breaks down about once a month.  It is currently in the shop.
  11. My hair is kind of curly.
  12. God takes good care of me, and I do my best to make him proud.
  13. I have an abnormal obsession with NPR, and its podcasts.  I’m brainy like that.
  14. It is my dream that one day when I’m feeling sad, Terry Gross will come and read to me.
  15. I can never see a paperclip without picking it up and bending it flat.  Never.
  16. Post-it notes are among the best inventions known to man.  I wish to find the man that created them, come to his house, and shake his hand.
  17. My wife and I do not have any children, or pets, but we do have a small aloe plant that we have named Al.  Al is a sickly little aloe, and we can never seem to give him the right combination of sun and (lack of) water to keep him happy.  Thus, his little stumpy limbs are always swollen, and slightly brown. But despite all odds, he struggles on.
  18. We really need to get a pet.

That sums it up, pretty much.  My hope is that this blog will not only be a venue for silly lists and things, but also be a vehicle for somewhat insightful thoughts and meditations.  That’s my hope.  You’ll just have to stay tuned.
