“Going back to Cali, stylin’, profilin’…”

Layna Pimentel gave me one of these, so I’m stylin’ and profilin’!  Personally, it reminds me how I really need to spruce the place up a bit.  I mean, I guess it’s stylish in a retro, used Salvo thrift store outfit kinda way.  Yeah, or not.  But anyway, I won and I’m grateful!

The rules of the Stylish Blogger Award call for me to tell seven things about myself.  I’ll give it a shot, trying not to repeat anything I might’ve said before.

  1. I have lived in what can be described, to varying degrees, as “college towns” for 10 years, now, and I’ve loved it!
  2. I have hit a woman–but in a sparring match, and only after having been hit and kicked a few times first. (And not ‘cos I was a gentleman, but because she was too fast.)
  3. I have Huey Lewis & The News’ whole catalog. Shut up.
  4. I videotaped the entire Jon Pertwee run of DOCTOR WHO off the local PBS station when I was a kid. 
  5. I know enough knife fighting techniques to know how dangerous a prospect it is.  I, however, am not really much of a threat to anyone.
  6. The first, and so far only, concert that ever came close to making me cry was Cassandra Wilson. (The clip isn’t from the actual show, but from the same tour.)
  7. I never considered myself a “horror writer,” though I guess, technically…?
