I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery.

Friday Five: Hysteria Calling

CashNot that I ever play the lottery, because I don’t, but if I did, and if I won, here are the first five people I’d call:

  5. American Express

Another Anniversary

I like this photo of my mom because I have to believe she liked it. It shows her as an adult and in probably the best shape of her life. Her only complaint, I bet, would be that my sister and I are not in it, and so it is not a true representation of […]

Friday Five: Weeks

CalendarMy five favorite weeks of the year:

  1. College Football Bowl Week
  2. Thanksgiving Week
  3. Shark Week
  4. The Week Between My Birthday and the 4th of July
  5. The First Weekend of College Football

It’s been 15,000 days since I was born. It is a meaningless number, but I felt like I should mention it.

I wish my mom was around to celebrate this milestone. She’d undoubtedly think it was really cool.

Friday Five: Favorite Rides

I’ve owned eleven cars in my life. Here are my five favorite:

  1. 1976 Ford Mercury Monarch
    My first car is still my favorite. It was a massive white tank with a red interior and a broken gas gauge. The engine died because nobody ever thought to tell me it was important to change the oil in a car.
  2. 2001 BMW 330ci
    I owned this car in Los Angeles and loved having a convertible. I had to give it up, though, because I couldn’t afford the maintenance costs.
  3. 1981 Toyota Corolla-Tercel
    My second car ranks highly on this list purely because of how many great times I had in it. I bought it for $800 with 200,000 miles on it and sold it for $800 with 300,000 miles on it.
  4. 1987 Toyota 4×4
    I bought this car in 2002 from a buddy just before he moved to New Zealand. It was probably the most dependable vehicle I’ve ever owned.
  5. 1991 Honda CRX Si
    This was my upgrade when I got rid of the Corolla-Tercel. It was Nike-green and awesome.

Mr. Chainsaw

I was supposed to run 10.75 miles this morning, but miscalculated where I needed to make a U-turn, so it was actually 11 miles on the nose. It took me almost exactly an hour and forty-five minutes — not bad for a week shy of 41 — and put me over 77 miles for the […]
