81- I once rebuilt a carburetor on my 1972 Gran Torino. It was an interesting project and my first venture into self-service garage work. When my Grandpa died, I lost the confidence to do any more of it.
82- Speaking of my Grandpa, there has never been a greater man born.
83- I have been married 3 times. THREE. Don’t freaking judge me.
84- Between HBO’s SIX FEET UNDER, THE SOPRANOS and CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, I have no use for network TV. Except for HOUSE, CSI, DAILY SHOW, BOSTON LEGAL and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. But I’m really not all that into TV.
86- I have whitewater rafted down the Arkansas River in Colorado with a buddy. We did the “big boy” rapids and I’m fairly sure it was the most thrilling thing I’ve ever done. I nearly shat myself, and DID piss into the raft at one time, but it simply mingled with the piss of the other 7 guys in the raft so nobody could tell it was mine.
87- I was an “only child” until I was 32. When I found my Dad, I learned he had a daughter who is my half-sister Kimberly. She lives in San Diego with three great kids and I hardly ever get to see them. My fault.
88- I enjoy going to the movie theater alone. Not many people do, but I actually like it. Although it gives me nobody to blame the farting on.
89- I speak fluent French, and not the foreign language kind. I have to be careful around my kids, lest I provide a bad example. I try to keep the goddamn curse words to a minimum in my writing though. Sometimes I fail. Son of a bitch.
90- I have large collections of ball caps and cigar lighters. Neither intentionally, actually. I buy cigar lighters compulsively almost every time I buy cigars. As for ball caps, I just seem to have a lot of them, like two big boxes full, mostly freebies. And yet I hardly ever wear them.
