I've Been Tagged....

I'm in Steven Wright mode this offseason so it's taken while for me to respond to these little ditties from Karen and Erica. So I guess I have to respond, huh?

The Instructions: Name five of life's simple pleasures that you like, then tag five people to do the same. Try to be original and creative.

Addendum: Five things not involving large amounts of alcohol and a 5'9'' 25 year old woman with a Cola-bottle body and legs made by Olympus.

1) Reading in the park with my MP3 headphones just people watching. Don't get to do this nearly as much I'd like. I plan to rectify this in 2006.

2) Going to a new ballpark and talking baseball with complete strangers.

3) Seeing live music in the city. Big venue, small venue....no matter the genre...seeing a good band do their thing live kicks ass.

4) Making Infidel Baseball Fans Cry. An annual rite of passage for every member of the Empire.

5) Football Tailgating. Even if the game sucks, you have something to look forward to.

Didn't home from New Year's partying until 7am and missed a football game that I had tickets for.

This is a family site.

Fun reads, Darth Marc. But, no, contrary to popular belief, Atlanta doesn't count as a foreign country! ;-)
