Laggard typecast: 25 things

So, after the "25 things about me" sensation has swept the nation, I finally wrote one up.

An interesting list. I have concluded that you are definitely smarter than me.

You got a pie thrown in your face on a double-decker bus?? I join all the wrong tour groups.

Dr. Croc said...

YOU hate to give ORDERS? Fancy that.

CStanford said...

Indeed, Dr. Croc. :)

Olivander, I so wish that it had been on the bus that I got the pie in my face. But in fact the two occasions were very separate.

Strikethru, you are too modest.

I love reading the sagas too. There's this great quote from Carolyn See, where she says it's basically the womenfolk standing around watching the menfolk slaughter each other. Lots of entertainment.

I used to work in a peach orchard. First thing in the morning, while sorting peaches, you would stash one or two dead ripe ones under the table, for eating later in the day. I love ripe peaches, but cherry season is my favorite!

You've seen The Mormon Worker, right? The Mormon anarchist newspaper? Apparently the ol' Pittsburgh book group discussed it back in December. Ah, those crazy Pittsburgh gals.
Also, I'm glad to hear you're a Glass fan . . . When Brian was in high school, his siblings wrote a skit called "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread." The script went something along the lines of, "I would like . . . I would . . . I would like a loaf . . . I would like . . . I would . . . I would like a loaf of bread," &c. &c.

You have changed my life! What rock have I been hiding under that I haven't discovered that newspaper? I'm very excited now.

And I'm "ROFLMAO" as they type about the Glass-bread skit. Freakin' awesome.
