2002: In My Spare
With Their Heads
Aren't I the cutest thing you've ever seen?
FUNNY THE BLOG
"Little Friend of Mine"
I posted Paul singing the song he wrote
for David on BlipTV. It's a big
file (46 MB) but if anybody
would like to see it, at least it's
(recorded off TV, so quality is not ideal)
Expect to wait a long time for it to download.
MARY MADE ME DO IT
19 August 2005
I could have sworn I did
this survey some time ago, but I can't seem to find it anywhere, so let's assume I didn't,
and I'll do it again. Blame Mary.
She tagged me.
What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ahhh...10 years ago. I don't know what I was specifically doing ten years
ago, but 10 years ago, David was alive. Paul was alive. And I suspect that
life seemed a lot happier then than it does now. It's not that life now is unhappy,
it's just that happiness changed in 1996, so I guess 1995 was my last year of carefree
What was I doing 5 years ago?
Now that's easier. Thanks to this journal, I know exactly what I was doing
5 years ago today. Five years ago I was bonding with my new computer and feeling
very happy because my friend/cousin Bill Brunson had come out of his coma and was speaking
again. (He died not too long after that.)
What was I doing 1 year ago?
A year ago, I was bonding with Sheila. Well, actually she'd been here
for a month or so and we were learning how to play "fetch-tag," where I would
throw the ball for her and she'd chase it, touch it and then drop it while I fetched it
for her. We are still playing this game. She trained me very well.
What was I doing yesterday?
Opening Pandora's box and letting out the World of Vlogging. I started checking out
a few things and, like things like this too often do, one site led to another which led to
another, which led to another. Found some really cool stuff, including a gal who has
been doing a daily "newscast" for
over 200 days and now has a bunch of "reporters" from around the world who
contribute to her daily broadcast.
I also reviewed a show last night.
What am I doing today?
Trying to catch up on what I didn't do yesterday and getting ready to review a show
Five snacks I enjoy:
* Ice Cream
* Seedless red grapes
* Bread and butter
Five bands I like:
This is a hard one since I don't usually "do" bands--at least not to recognize
Five things I would do with a million dollars:
* Upgrade all computer and camera equipment to top of the line, and add a
gazillion terabyte hard drive.
* Finance The Big Voice in New York and support Steve in the manner to which he'd
like to become accustomed.
* Hire a landscape architect and a gardener
* Have my entire house redone, inside and out
* Take a cruise up the inland passage
(since $1 million doesn't go as far as it used to, I suspect that I
probably couldn't even do ONE of these things well for $1 million!)
Five locations I would like to run away to:
* Hillary's Marina
(because the water is so beautiful)
* San Francisco (fortunately, that one's possible!)
Five bad habits:
* Eating (duhhh)
* Sloppy housekeeping
* Wasting time on the computer
* Text Twist
Five things I like doing:
* Watching TV
* Wasting time on the computer
Five TV shows I like:
I'm in a period of transition, since some of my top favorites have gone off the air, but
* The West Wing
* Desperate Housewives
* The Daily Show
* Whose Line is It Anyway?
Five famous people I would like to meet:
Basically, there is nobody famous I'd like to meet. I've met some famous people in
my day (Judy Garland and Carol Channing, for example) and I'm terrible around new people,
famous or not. I'd just as soon be on the outskirts looking in rather than having to
deal with the face-to-face encounters. I also would rather know someone
than to deal with the public persona.
Five favorite toys: (These would be current toys, not
* My computer, of course
* My digital camera
* The new DVR
* (Can PhotoShop be a toy?)
* My PDA
Five people to tag: (Come on, y'all; you know you want to!)
* Mary (the other Mary)
HEADLINES: Now here is somebody who had a great time writing this
article! (Be sure to check it out--it's worth it for a giggle)
