Brown and beige would taste like steak and mashed potatoes, respectively. I would have to finish them both before I could have dessert, green, which would be key lime pie.[Error: unknown template qotd]

I'd sing covers of covers. Like the G&R version of "Live and Let Die," the Cheryl Crow version of "Sweet Child of Mine." To top it off, I'd cover Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" where he sang a cover version of his own song (he sang someone else's lyrics).

Me talking to my mom, in the kitchen kind of near the window and the door to the basement stairs, but I don't remember what the conversation was about or anything. But for some reason, the incident has been stuck in my brain. It had to have been when I was 2 1/2 or 3.

First memory that I know what was a trip to Niagara Falls which was sometime around my third birthday. I remember looking down into the gorge, and seeing the water and foam at the bottom. I also vaguely remember getting my finger caught in my uncle's van door during that trip (I was told by my parents that it was the US Customs guard at the Rainbow Bridge, who closed the door on my finger and apologized profusely when she realized what happened.) The nail on my left index finger has a perpetual chip in it to this day from being slammed in the van door all those years ago.

An engineer.

As I've heard it put:

An optimist says the glass is half-full.
A pessimist says the glass is half-empty.
An engineer says the glass is twice as large as it needs to be.

I saw Ray Davies in concert last night, and it was the greatest thing I've seen in a while. The old guy's still got it. If you get a chance to see him or The Kinks, I highly recommend going.

It's already been done, pretty much. Paul Giamatti in American Splendor.

Been here since Feb. 2004. In that time I:

-have had the same job for pretty much the whole time, except for a brief stint last year when I was laid off.

-bought my own place. In practical terms, this means I moved from an apartment on one side of the street to a similar apartment on the other side of the street. The fact that it's mine, and that I have to pay a mortgage and taxes on it and stuff, makes me feel important. Or something.

-Had a long not-quite-a-relationship but more-than-friends-with-benefits that lasted a few years (I'm still good friends with the guy), and a real relationship that lasted a little more than a month (after which I never saw or heard from him again).

-Gained some weight. Lost it. Gained some of it back. Beard is now streaked with a little grey.

-Owned three cars, three cornputers, and three iPods.

-Lost count of how many times I helped friends move.

-Stopped going to Rocky. Still haven't started doing whatever it is that normal people do.

That would be two: Will Ferrel and Adam Sandler. If I never have to see either of them in a film again it would be too soon.
