I like waking up not suspecting what my hair has planned.

I kind of like being connected with current events... Okay, not really. Whenever I go online to read about some riot I end up looking at pics of baby meerkats or something. Not rioting, just being adorable. Meerkats are current, though. Meerkats are so now.

Being a good sport.

Laughing at people. In a friendly way. Including myself.

That I look like Daniel Faraday from Lost. People confronted me in stores, restaurants, everywhere. It was intense. The day after he died everyone shook their heads sadly at me, and I felt terrible. Or just off, like in TNG when someone gets stuck in a "phase shift"... Every other episode it seems like.

Spoiler alert about Dr. Faraday: He dies. But the statute of limitations is up. Seriously.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Music and poetry
- True friends and interesting people
- Animals and the outdoors
- Thinking and feeling... You may take this for granted, but for me it's a little like patting your head and rubbing your belly
- That beep that tells me where my car is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
You know a distinguished professor created the Vampire language for Blade? Sure, that happens I guess. But she died in 2000 and her notes were lost. Another professor had to reconstruct it for Blade II. Weird.
