25 random things about me

I have now been tagged for the “25 random things” meme about ten times, so I suppose I should actually pony up and generate a list.  Many of you should recognize some or all of these, but people who are newer to in general won’t know all of them.  For extra bonuses, I’ll link to some entries.

106 Books: the Amy edition

Stolen from Stephen and Misty.

Misty: “These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. I’ve bolded what I’ve read and italicized what I started but couldn’t finish…”

49 read, 2 in progress, 2 instances of sheer loathing:

The Aeneid
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
American Gods
Anansi Boys

"Maybe we'll get used to eternal torment"

Usually I have at least pithy commentary. Right now, I don’t, and nothing anthrax-related either (that’s for later today) but I am contractually obligated to pass on this link that Brian sent me:The Armageddon Flowchart (crude text-and-arrows image but contains a few words in the image that wouldn’t be worksafe if your work browser snoopers could read what’s in the image)

I shall now alt-tab away from this window and continue tossing quotes from this image to my friends.

Interview game redux

These are my answers to the five questions Amy posited to me.

(1) You have five bullets and a guarantee that you will never be prosecuted. Who gets the bullets, and why? (A single person is allowed multiple bullets, if necessary.)

Hmmm…If you’re going to limit me to five, I’m going to have to be pretty judicious; I don’t think I’m in danger of having to pump multiple bullets into the same person.
(1) Gallagher. I’ve always wondered if his head would explode like his melons.
