33 three-toed tree toads

yes, there are thirty-three three-toed tree toads in that watercolor

I’ve been so serious around here lately that I’ve depressed the hell out of myself. Thanks for sticking around. I still find joy in the absurdities around me. So here’s a list of 33 totally random things. Why 33? It was my jersey number when I played basketball.

Yeah, I played basketball. Here’s some proof.

And that counts as #1. The remaining 32, in no particular order:

  • I almost caused an international incident by accidentally driving into East Germany.
  • I used to be a bartender.
  • I snore.
  • I used to write poetry on demand while sitting in a pub and drinking beer (in college — isn’t everything forgivable if you did it in college…mostly?)
  • I slept on the floor of the Marseilles train station.
  • I used to draw and paint when I was younger. I can still draw some if I’m in the mood.
  • I thought about being a nun. I decided against it because I didn’t want to be a teacher. Ha.
  • I wear a hat to write.
  • My favorite color is blue.
  • My favorite color is green.
  • My favorite color is yellow.
  • I change my mind a lot.
  • I don’t like confrontation.
  • I people watch and create elaborate and scandalous back stories. And then I am ashamed.
  • My favorite ice cream is Rocky Road.  Or pistachio. Or strawberry. Or Baskin Robbins Baseball Nut.
  • Definitely, my favorite ice cream is Baseball Nut.
  • Or chocolate.
  • I am indecisive.
  • I can’t parallel park.
  • I used to ride a unicycle.
  • I can juggle.
  • I don’t like scary movies.
  • I can read a bunch of books at the same time (well, not at the same time, but you know what I mean) and I can keep them all straight and summarize everything, but I have trouble memorizing things like lines of poetry and phone numbers.
  • I feel things in colors and it’s very weird and very scary. And pretty cool.
  • I used to cut school like a fiend and only got caught once — by an Assistant Principal who went on to become the Superintendent of Dade County Public Schools in the mid 80’s, and thus, my boss. Tee hee.
  • I majored in English, and minored in French and Psychology. I probably could have picked up history, too.
  • One of my favorite cities is Paris.
  • My favorite cartoon is Marvin the Martian.
  • I have a soft spot for marching bands, especially woodwinds.
  • I don’t like the circus.
  • I like to dance.
  • Although I can be loud and even gregarious in a group, I am much more comfortable with one or two people.
  • I think sour apple Jolly Ranchers are disgusting.
  • I lost count and am not sufficiently vested in the accuracy of this post to go back and count.
