I can't resist these kinds of things, to my endless chagrin

(via Red)

1. If you were a writer, what kinds of books would you write?

I've started a bunch of books; history, trashy action-adventure, even a self-help book. Someday...

2. Do you expect to ever be famous in your lifetime? If yes, what do you expect to be famous for?

Not really, but if it happens it'll probably be something in radio.

3. Say something liberal.

"The Constitution is a living, breathing document. Hell, it even has feelings. It needs to change".

Oh, seriously? Hm: We should abolish elementary school.

4. Say something conservative.

Enlightened self-interest is the ultimate regulator.

5. What did you dream about last night?

I rarely remember dreams.

6. What have you read this week? Include everything: magazines, emails, blogs, books, etc.

Innumerable blogs, hundreds of emails, Reagan In His Own Hand, USN&WR, Wellington's Sharpshooters (history of the Royal Green Jackets), food labels.

7. Tell me about your worst date ever.

Someone I'd met online, and things seemed really promising. We met at Chang O'Hara's (note: every date I've ever had at Chang's has been a disaster. Ditto Fern's). Normally I can keep a conversation with a rock going for an hour, but after 25 minutes, I was running on fumes. Finally, I punted. "Sorry - I usually do better than this..." "Sorry", she said, "It's probably my fault...", and launched into a story about her most recent ex-boyfriend. With whom she'd broken up several times. It was a dismal, dysfunctional sounding situation - and l sat and listened for half an hour, until she stopped. And teared up. "I'm sorry", she said, "I have to go", and she ran out of the bar, jumped into her car, and drove away crying. Rumor from a mutual acquaintance was she got back together with the guy. Or something like that.

8. Name three of your bad habits and three of your good habits.

I procrastinate.
I worry.
I twist my hair when I'm nervous or idle.

I blog every day.
I'm a good listener.
I can't think of any more.

9. Tell me something you're very proud of.

The kids. And the way the NARN has worked out.

10. Give me a piece of wisdom that I should pass on to Parker Grace (who is now twelve weeks old).

I've got ten things right here. Hope they help.

Thanks for the ten things you'd tell your kids, Mitch. I liked them enough to send them on to my daughter and daughter-in-law who are both mothers. I hope they take them all to heart.

As for the survey, aren't those fun for some reason?! I really identified with one of the respondents on the other site...the one who has stacks and stacks of books and magazines piled around the house...I find it inexplicable to go to my sister-in-law's house and there isn't a single book or even a magazine ANYWHERE. How on earth do she and her husband occupy their time?! (I think she cleans...)
