1. This very blog you're reading.
2. The Cal Band. I suspect you've heard of them. Well, also the Screamin', Hypin', Take Us To Hawaii, We're Not Cheap But We're Easy band. You may not have heard of them.
3. Three times, the last time when I was 12. Such a waste.
4. Ew. Just ew.
5. I'm guessing drop spindling counts.
6. I bought a book on Russian and got about halfway through it. Tough language. Interesting, though. Oh, I think HTML fits here, too.
7. Walked up. Had forgotten my fear of heights amidst a desire to avoid a long line and higher fare. Walking down was... interesting.
8. Fishy-tasting little bubbles that burst in an icky way. Lovely.
9. My orbit. Yes, really. With a head. In soccer. (Don't follow the link if you're squeamish!)
10. Was the presiding juror (translation: jury foreman), in fact. Knit an entire sweater, just about. Grand theft--bank robbery. Guilty.
11. Anthony Hopkins, after a play in Los Angeles. He has huge hands and was very gracious to my babbling.
12. Rest in peace, Uncle Babe, Uncle Carl, Granny Vi, Grandma Van.
13. Still have him, in fact. No longer a baby, but a big 8.5-year-old.
14. Worker's comp is a lawsuit, right? Yuck.

I could come up with some other things, I think... fun.
