Five Things You Should Know About Me

Jasia at Creative Gene has kindly tagged me, which obliges me to divulge five things that you should know about me, but probably don't. Here goes:

  • I'm a vegetarian who loves the smell of frying bacon.
  • I once drove from Maine to Florida just to see three Grateful Dead shows.
  • I have a master's degree in philosophy, but haven't read a book on philosophy cover-to-cover since leaving college.
  • My handwriting is so bad that I sometimes have trouble reading my own signature.
  • I went to England, France and Spain on a class trip when I was 15, and the only artwork I remember seeing is this painting.
Since I don't like to impose upon the living, I will in turn tag my ancestors Moses Dunham, Mark Shepherd, Ephraim Wilds, Cyrille Cyr, and Toivo Tamlander. C'mon, guys, tell me five things about yourselves that I don't already know!

Chris,

Let me know if the ancestors answer you... would make a great blog story :D

Chris

Don't hold your breath. They've been giving me the silent treatment for years.

Jasia

A master's in philosophy, huh? OK, I'm impressed. Surprised too. I'd have guessed you mastered humor ;-)

About that painting... I've never seen it before and I hope to never see it again. That's the stuff nightmares are made of! No wonder you've remembered it all these years. It certainly makes an impact. Maybe you should see a clinical therapist about that...

Chris

I guess we're both outranked by Steve with his Ph.D.

Miriam

OK...that painting...um, yeah.

Chris

You can imagine how seeing that painting at the tender age of 15 influenced my understanding of women. In case you were wondering why I never married...
