Twenty five random things (for those facebookers out there)

1 In the last year, I’ve read at least 40 books but only two of them were novels

2 I’m creeped out by insects, snakes and rodents

3 Dealing with money makes me crazy.

4 I’m a bad sports fan – I think someone should cheer for the away team at every game

5 I prefer red to white wine

6 I’m an INFP

7 I’ve hiked the Grand Canyon twice, Bald Mountain in the Uintahs multiple times, and kayaked the Gulfe Dulce in Costa Rica but I don’t really like the outdoors

8 I’m sometimes more comfortable talking to strangers than friends and family

9 My favorite uncle was a homeless junkie – and one of the smartest people I’ve ever met

10 I think I’m not very smart because I’ve always surrounded myself with brilliant people

11 My favorite poet is Walt Whitman

12 I love US history and I can’t understand people who don’t

13 Left to my own devices, I’d sleep till noon every day and go to be at 4 or 5 a.m.

14 I once worked graveyard shifts at a hotel

15 My favorite place in Colonial Williamsburg is the DeWitt-Wallace decorative arts museum

16 My favorite drink is hot tea, my second favorite iced tea.

17 I starred as a rock star in a one act play in college

18 No matter how late it is, I can’t go to bed without having a last cup of tea

19 I don’t think good and evil exist outside of the human heart and I don’t think there are many absolutes in the world.

20 I think most people’s lives are harder than they feel free to ever admit to anyone else.

21 My favorite foods are spicy, interesting and can’t have shellfish since it makes me sick

22 I’m so honored by the friendship of the amazing people I know and love – people who are smart, passionate, committed, multi-faceted, witty, funny and interested in the world around them.

23 My friends inspire every single day

24 I loved being a student at Judge Memorial but I would never try to recreate that time

25 I think I lead a very boring life.

    Anybody who needs a token conservative on their FB can add me as a friend.

    Not boring at all.

    8 I’m sometimes more comfortable talking to strangers than friends and family

    I too find it easier to talk to strangers.

    Ken – good to know!

    BenJoe – I don’t know why it is that I feel more comfortable with strangers sometimes – it’s odd. It’s not like my friends and family aren’t trusthworthy. Weird.

    Hey Glendon, I didn’t read anywhere that you blog. (Cyber-organizational-pub-busting tool). Certainly among the top 25, I’d suppose.

    Are you now, or have you ever been involved in a ‘Flash-mob’?

    I like 19. These lists people make are fun to read…I also feel privileged to have spent time outdoors in Costa Rica with you even though you’re not an outdoor person. I am also a bad sports fan. I don’t cheer for any team. I also prefer red wine to white.

    the few, the proud, the possessors of messed up personalities.

    #19 really resonates with me. Thanks for sharing, Glenden!
