I think I'll just jump on the tag bandwagon and do this "five things" meme that's been flying around. No one tagged me specifically, so I'll be like that loud guy at the bar who jumps into your conversation and starts talking and then won't go away. I've seen a few versions of this, but I think I'll do Melinda June's since it's the most recent one I've seen. I've also seen nifty entries from Dr MVM, and MNMom.
5 things in my bag
-a Glock Model 26 magazine with 10 rounds of 9mm ammo
-a Leatherman folding knife that MizBubs gave me
-a cheap LED flashlight from REI.
-a Northwestern University Traffic Institute binder and legal pad
-extra ink pens, each bearing the name of some company that gave them out for free
5 favorite things in my room:
-MizBubs, although she's not there at the moment
-the top drawer of my dresser, which is where I have some airline vouchers, my cufflinks, finisher certificates from the marathons I've run, my cufflinks, a collection of old family photographs, casino matchbooks and a bunch of other neat small things.
-a picture of me and MizBubs taken in 1984 at the UIC campus
-a picture of my girls taken at a cabin in Minnesota in 1995
-my black kangaroo skin Lucchese cowboy boots
5 things I have always wanted to do:
-hike the Appalachian Trail (or any other really long hike)
-learn to fly an airplane
-go to a culinary school (even though I know enough to not want to be a professional chef)
-live in the country
-visit every continent in the world and just roam around
5 things I'm currently into:
-procrastination and exhaustion
-researching a book that I have a vague notion of writing
-planning camping trips
-guns and shooting
-finding and buying local foods, and supporting more local agriculture
5 people I'd like to tag:
MizBubs, and then any other people who want to respond to this. I originally tagged my eldest and youngest daughters, but I've been informed that they don't "do" tags.
