I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late.

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:

  1. my wife / son
  2. my lawyer
  3. my sister
  4. my dad
  5. American Express

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.

Friday Five: 1975 Photos

Here are five photos of yours truly from 1975. Four are from March — about three months shy of my second birthday — and one is from June, presumably around my birthday. They are some of the only photos I have of myself as a child, and they were (apparently) very special to my mom, who kept them safe and very close to her for almost forty years. She died on August 12, 2012 and I miss her more than she’ll ever know.
