Tag, You're it!

My first Meme which is not unlike my first root canal. Thanks Dooce I'll do my best.

Here’s the blueprint. A pal is given a bunch of questions to answer and at the end “tags” fellow pals to provide their answers and tag more fortunate victims. It’s the ultimate pyramid scheme.

So, to get into the mood I changed into my Pharoah outfit, demanded crocodile for supper and prepared to sally forth.

Where is Sally, by the way, does she have the day off?

Four jobs I’ve had

Why Kill Bill 2 and not the first one?
It's been so long since I've seen either one.
They were both done in such different styles.

New reader, here. The first season of "Leave it to Beaver" is out on dvd. I like the earlier ones better. June had better lines and actually was allowed to speak as if she had a clue about what was going on.

Shares my love of Macintosh computers, knows a hell of a good meal when he sees one, and LEFT a job at $70/hour?

My, Bill. If only we'd met in college. If. Only.

Bill! Thanks for the shout out.

Ship offload has begun and I have less than two weeks left in this office. Yippee! Though I mourn my departure from Antarctica itself.

You wouldn't really wanna be here, you'd freeze your Texan ass off. It's 28F, down to 14F with wind chill.

Start saving to come on a cruise ship. They've got neat yellow coats.

Thanks for the tag, man! I woke up this morning and my site meter was on TILT with all the referral traffic! ;)

A great way to start a Thursday.

And, creme brulee? An excellent choice. ;)

Did you like Leadville, CO? I've been through there when I lived in CO. I love the history there.

I found you through Foo. Nice to read you.
