Fives

My good friend Zakary hit me up to do one of these fill-in-the-whatever survey things. While I am not a fan of the structure or format of such things, they do make for easy filler when there is little else about which to post.

5 years ago:
I was chin deep in the worst personal tragedy I have yet to experience.

10 years ago: I had just started working for the company I am still with today.

15 years ago: I was a college Freshman majoring in drinking and partying balls.

20 years ago: I had been back from Florida less than a year, and didn't even play guitar yet. I may have had a mullet.

25 years ago: I was nine (almost ten) years old and I had just finished the third grade.


Five yummy things:
(Easy now Krëg. Don't make some sexist or misogynistic crack about women being yummy. Women aren't "things," and shouldn't be objectified as such. Even the really sexy ones.)
Salmon sashimi (from Fuji)
Chorizo tacos (from Rio Verde)
Me Mum's w/ egg (from The White Lion)
Gyros plate (Jim's Never On Sunday)
Kate Beckinsale

Five songs I know by heart:
Sh!t, only FIVE? I've only been playing guitar for 20 years. I've learned at LEAST nine or ten songs by now. How about: 'Five songs I know by heart that are my favorites of the ones that my band and I played Friday evening and will probably play again tonight'?
Roger Miller - King Of The Road
Felice Brothers - Frankie's Gun
Thao Nguyen & The Get Down Stay Down - Bag Of Hammers
Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1
Johnny Cash - Thirteen
And just for a lark, here's Five songs I know by Heart:
Baracuda
Dog And Butterfly
Heartless
All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You
Never
Nancy Wilson is STILL looking ridiculously sexy. She was 20 when I was born.


Five places I would like to escape to: (or 'to which I would like to escape', for all you like-minded grammar nazis. Also, I object to the word 'escape', as it implies that I am a 34-year-old single man who feels horribly trapped in the blissful life that is his bachelor paradise. But whatever.)
Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas
The Grand Tetons
Austin's SXSW festival next spring
To see my good friend Zakary in CO and buy all kinds of fantastic things from her store
Kate Beckinsale

Five things I would never wear:
Tampon
Brassiere
Anything "strap-on"
A condom in Haiti
Briefs

Five favorite TV shows:
Tom & Jerry
Cheers
Simpsons
Top Gear
Austin City Limits

Five things I enjoy doing:
Laughing
Playing musical instruments
Making others laugh
Sleeping
Thinking

Five Favorite toys:
Condenser microphone (phantom power not included)
Accordion
Piano
Hammond
My brand new Telecaster

I'm supposed to tag someone else to do this thing, but I'll spare y'all the fun. Make up your own instead.

Awesome.

Would you wear a strap on in Haiti?

My favorite part was the five things you'd never wear. Genius.
