Cinco de me

Oh I know. If I were cool, I'd hate getting tagged. I'd find a way to gently mock the entire process and only half-heartedly play along. But there's something fun about summarizing your likes/dislikes, dreams, hopes and interests. When you think about it, it's a privilege typically reserved only for Playboy centerfolds and the subjects of American Express print ads. So I'm excited! Here's my list:

- I absolutely excel at euchre.

- I'll watch anything if the opening credits include Edith Head.

- You know how when Micky Ward used to fight, he had that tic where he'd always adjust his trunks after each round? Yeah? Well: that always did a little something for me.

- I can't stop buying dishes or kitchen gadgets.

- Tammy Wynette, Sammy Davis Jr, Cecilia Bartoli, Buddy Rich, LeRoi Brothers, Victor Borge, Don Rickles and Ella Fitzgerald -- of all the people I've seen perform live, these are my favorites.

There. Wow. I really feel like this exercise has brought us closer together, don't you? Hmm? Where'd you go? Great. Who's gonna tell Lori, HighJive -- yes! -- and Amy that I've chosen them?

Somehow, I feel closer knowing these things. Closer, in a Squeaky Fromme kind of way.

Alright sunshine - reply posted. I await crazy people mocking my choice of music.

Ok missy, I finally succumbed.

Happy as I am that you're such a good sport, I have to say that the more I know about you, the more of an enigma you become.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Tammy Wynette and Cecilia Bartoli? Awesome.

MRLB – According to reports, authorities grabbed your comment and wrestled it to the ground.

MdM & Amy – Thank you! It’s kinda intimidating to tag someone. Your confessions were off the scale in entertainment value.

Mr M -- I simply can’t compete with "Armed Forces radio DJ" or even “awake during surgery.” Still, I gave it a go.
