I've been tagged by another excellent friend of mine. HENCEFORTH

  1. I drink roughly 2L of water every work day, possibly more. It's become habit at this point. I like the feeling of staying hydrated, and I also secretly believe it will help prevent kidney stones from forming.

  2. I live in mild, mostly-unexpressed terror of kidney stones, not that I know of any familial susceptibility toward them.

  3. I am the last man alive who has a cellphone without a camera, and I don't care. I have a camera.

  4. I think my brother, who had a birthday recently, is much better at interacting with little kids than I am. This has always been a source of mild consternation to me, for no real reason.

  5. I have a ready answer for the "What superpower would you like to have?" question. If you don't know what it is, I'll tell you later in person, probably.

  6. I've engineered my evening walk from the office to where I pick up the bus to take me past the little park where the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill like to roost in extremely low trees and land on people who look like they have food.

  7. I must be a pretty fastidious dude, because I haven't stopped to hang out with the parrots for fear of having them shit on my jacket.

  8. I'm a pretty good driver, particularly here in San Francisco, where I've pretty much worked out the fastest way to get between points, and most of the secret places to find parking.

  9. I'm working on building up my tolerance to extreme spice.

  10. Of the songs I've written, it seems like the ones that took me the least amount of time to write are the ones that are the most popular among my friends. I attribute this not to some lack of taste on my friends' part, but to the amount of inspiration that enabled me to write those songs quickly.

I have such an unclear idea of who actually reads this blog that I have to chicken out on tagging anybody else. But if you want to do this on your own blog, nobody will stop you. Nobody!
