Writing is an odd activity. Especially for me. Most the time when I write, I know exactly what I'm going to say. That's because the writing I'm paid to do comes from somewhere else in my mind than the writing I do here. The writing I'm paid to do comes from logical facts, ideas and conclusions whereas I'd be hard-pressed to find a lot of logic in a lot of what I've written here.

So, embracing that observation, here's a very illogical list of things about me:

1. I like to eat popcorn for dinner. But it has to be made on the stove, not in the microwave.

2. I played hockey as a kid and loved it.

3. I know how to play poker, but not well.

4. I like Southern food enough to wrestle someone twice my size for a good piece of chicken.

5. When I'm in the South, I insist on drinking sweet tea as if it's more vital to life than air.

6. I love driving on the highway.

7. City driving makes me feel out of place.

8. One day I'd like to see the country from one of these.

9. Even when I write here, I need to write in a real pen-and-paper journal almost every day.

10. My dog gets to sleep on the bed on cold nights.

11. I want to learn to play the piano ("Heart and Soul" and "Jingle Bells" don't count).

12. I can't relax on the weekend until the house is clean.

13. I'm training for a marathon this year.

14. I want more money to travel.

15. I have a "techie" job and though I never thought it would be possible, I love it.

I'm with you on 6 and 11. Regarding popcorn for dinner, I will just have to try it sometime!
