    extra special bitter
    hops are bitter. life is bitter. coincidence?

    Thursday, August 11, 2005

    I've been tagged

    Heather Feather was the unwitting tagger. Here is the sorry result:

    10 years ago: my first and only full summer in Stillwater, MN. As I recall, we had two or three consecutive days with high temperatures over 100. tenement landscapes begins to take shape.

    5 years ago: our next to last full day in England. We are loading up on Monkman's Slaughter. Camera in hand, Mary asks "do sheep bite?" Two days later, Tim moves in with us.

    1 year ago: we prepare to drive Tim to college in Fredericksburg, VA and then drive back the long way, through Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and the U.P.

    Yesterday: pay day! Asian Dub Foundation's "Community Music" arrives in the mail. The Red Sox beat Texas 16 to 5.

    Today: back-to-back meetings are cancelled, freeing me up to compile this list. Red Sox are off. Yoga at 6:30, after which I perform pro bono IT functions for Mary. I suspect I will need beer.

    Tomorrow: Friday! John is taking us to lunch at Redbones in Davis Square. we prepare for Saturday's MWRA meeting. Rebekah is getting married next weekend!

    5 snacks I enjoy: turron, halvah, cashews, almonds, grapes

    5 singers/bands most of whose lyrics I know: Guided by Voices, REM, Robyn Hitchcock, The Kinks, The Who

    5 things I would do with $100,000,000: pay for my kids' college, invest in an income-producing fund, visit Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and other places on our growing list, purchase my very first new car, move to Belize

    5 locations I'd run away to: Placencia, 29 Palms, Monterrey, Santa Fe, the Cropton Brewery

    5 bad habits I have: a fondness for beer and wine, an aversion to exercise, bad puns, night terrors, blogging during work hours

    5 things I like doing: hunting for brewpubs in new locations, "discovering" new music, writing haiku, writing about writing haiku, researching new gadgets

    5 things I would never wear: a girdle, a corset, a wife beater, a midriff-bearing blouse, pumps

    5 TV shows I like: The Daily Show, Malcolm in the Middle, The Simpsons, Argentine Soccer Highlights, Thirty Days

    5 Movies I like: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Breaker Morant, My Favorite Year, The Waking Life, Lost in Translation

    5 Famous People I'd Like to meet: George W. Bush (to punch him), Robert Pollard (to introduce him to good beer), Jon Stewart (to talk about dogs), Robyn Hitchcock (to talk about supercomputers), Jackie Chan (to drive me around San Francisco)

    5 Biggest Joys at the moment: Hazed and Infused, Melody du jour, Nate's two doubles, a number of rekindled friendships, "Pink Frost"

    5 Favorite Toys: Creative Zen Touch, Blackberry, blogger.com, Shadow Poetry, Google Earth
