Friday Fives

1. What kind of lighting is around you?

I am in an office building, so it is those long flourescent type lights.

2. What do you think of your singing voice?

It's terrible. it is a monotone monster. I can hold a 'D', but that is about it.

3. Who do you try to please?

you, the reader. Just kidding. It would be me first, then my wife. Frankly, you the reader are quite low on said list.

4. Describe your last dream:

last night I had anxiety dreams about my friend getting a job here. I dreamt they moved him into my department and directly under me. As he is a near life long drinking buddy... the conflicts of interest would be bad.

5. When is the last time you bought flowers?

I don't remember. I remember this though, it was for my wife, and I bought them for NO REASON. That is correct, I am simply a much better husband than you are.

The fives are courtesy of Roy, as almost always.

Coming Soon, the I am Correcties

It's time for the annual celebration and thoughtful look around the web at the best writing going on out here. This year's 'I am Correcties' will look at five distinct categories of web journalism and then I will appoint my site the winner in each.

Friday Fives

1. When is the last time you lost your keys?

Lost my keys? I don't. I'll tell you the last time I locked them in my truck... how about that. Actually, that is the whole story. I locked them in my truck.

2. Are you likely to ask for directions when lost or to continue to wander?

If I am alone, I'll wander for days. Finding things becomes a matter of principle and wits. However, if I need to really be somewhere... or my wife is with me, I ask directions.

3. Numerology: reliable or just a load of bunk

I'd say bunk, but that would be an insult to the word bunk. That being said, I am quite obsessed with the number 33, really.

4. Marilyn Monroe. Conspiracy or tragic accident?

Accident. I watched a zillion hours of Discovery Channel stuff on her fairly recently. For whatever reasons, she did herself in.

5. Favorite childhood sweets/candy?

M&Ms. Unquestionable my favorite food in the world for the first 20 or 30 years of my life. Here is a quick tip you can have for free: freeze them for about 30 minutes before you have them.
