5 things
Sighted at Richard Hall's blog, and also at Randy McRoberts's. I'll continue the meme.

Ten years ago
I was 35. Our office had had email for about a year, and I was exploring the fascinating world of Usenet.

Five years ago
I was 40, diagnosed with diabetes, and in for some major changes to my eating and exercise habits. My first book had been published a year earlier, and I was at work on the second.

One year ago
At about this time a year ago, I stopped blogging for a few months.

Five yummy things
Tostitos topped with melted Monterey jack cheese and picante sauce.
A thick slab of prime rib, medium rare, with horseradish.
Red beans and rice.
Chocolate cheesecake with cherries and whipped cream.
Fresh blueberries. I eat them by the fistful.

Five songs I know by heart
"American Pie," Don McLean
"Bohemian Rhapsody," Queen
"Death or Glory," The Clash
"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," The Rolling Stones
"Yesterday," The Beatles

Five things I would do with a lot of money
Take an extended vacation to Spain.
Pay off the mortgage.
Play the stock market.
Create an endowed scholarship fund or two.
Buy something special for Dy.

Five places I would to escape to
The Basque Country (Euskal).
Some remote island somewhere, as long as it had an Internet connection.
Some other remote island.

Five things I would never wear
White socks with sandals.
Cowboy boots.
A 10-gallon hat.
Anything with any political candidate's name on it.

Five favorite TV shows
Currently? If so, they are:
Arrested Development (hoping it's still on; haven't seen it in a few weeks).
The West Wing.
The Office.
My Name Is Earl.

Favorites of all time:
St. Elsewhere.
Saturday Night LIve from the '70s.
Hill Street Blues.
Captain Kangaroo.
Star Trek.

Five things I enjoy doing
Running (usually).
Playing guitar.
Eating a good meal.
Having written. (I hate to write but love to have written.)
Playing chess.

Favorite toys
My Treo 650.
My two guitars (an Ibanez acoustic and an old Elektra fake Les Paul-style electric).
Silly Putty.
My TV remote control.

Five people who get this ‘meme’
I'll pick on some faithful commenters to this blog: Debi, Courtney, Len, Kelly, Michele. And just for fun, because he hates these things, I'll add Tesco to the list.
