Things about me:

  1. I love brussels sprouts, especially grilled with olive oil and garlic.
  2. I get high on such things as hackysack, running, bicycling, skiing, competition, socializing, loving and making love.
  3. I was petrified of speaking in high school speech class, but now I’m quite extroverted.  As John Denver said, “thank God I’m a country boy!”
  4. My bicycle is worth far more than my car.  Well, so are my golf clubs.  And my television.  Maybe my bed too….
  5. My car runs great!  Rolls, actually.  I run pretty well.
  6. I like over 98% of the foods I can think of.  That’s a wild ass guess, but I’m a bean counter, so I fancy myself to be a pretty good guesser.
  7. Seattle is the biggest city I’ve lived in.  It is far too wet and crowded for me.  But it’s fun to visit in the summer!  New York City is called “The City” for good reasons.  It was the most fun city I’ve been to for culture.  Orlando was incredibly fun!

I always nominate fewer bloggers than directed by “rules.”  I think it’s a lesser offense, one that I should be forgiven for.  I’ve cut back on speeding, so I feel the need to do something naughty.  ( :
