Seven Things

I'm it. Seven things you may not know about me:
  1. I'm partial to small funky fish: anchovies, sardines, and the like (as food stuffs, though I'm sure they're quite fine in other regards as well).
  2. I prefer dark meat.
  3. I once spent the better part of a summer sitting in our driveway in Virginia, wearing welding goggles, using a magnifying glass to concentrate the sun's light into a burning hot speck and—over the course of countless hours—burn a picture of a pine tree by a lake into a 1x12 board. (My mom hung it in the upstairs hallway, where it remains today.)
  4. I don't like roller coasters.
  5. I grew up saying "route" so it rhymed with "grout" (as did everyone else in my neck of the woods).
  6. I love peanut butter but am often indifferent to peanut butter based sweets.
  7. As a younger lad, I was prone to elaborate boho-thrift affectations and once purchased an old raincoat that I wore inside out because I liked its lining.
I choose not to tag anyone else, (a) because I fear that an unchecked exponential pyramid expansion of meme-tagging would quickly hobble the world's digital networks and end civilization as we know it, and (b) because I'm tired and don't wanna. (Does that give me bad bloggy karma?)

    No.3: 'Though I didn't make it myself - I also have a beautiful 1x12 board, embellished with elaborate etchings.

    I cannot get my mom to hang it in her hallway, however.
