This list was originally a MySpace bulletin; expanded into a Blog Post by my buddy, Stoic Sideman. Considering the fact I avoid MySpace like the plague, I opted to shamelessly copy the list, adapt it with my own information, and post it here instead. You may do the same provided you add your own unique introduction similar to this first paragraph. So let’s get on with the list, shall we?

Myself ~ sometimes I really am my own worse enemy.
[Thirty-five] Why are you doing this?
I’m doing this because it seemed like a good idea at the time, insomnia, et. al. And although I’ve completed dozens of these inane lists over the years, once I get beyond the half-way point I simply must complete the dang thing.
[Thirty-six] Do you like working in the yard?
Yes, but only during cooler autumn lawn mowing experiences. I gives me time I wouldn’t normally take to catch-up on some of my podcasts in the quiet comfort of my noise-canceling headphones.

Buffet, Branson, Gates, Getty . . . you see the progression, eh?

A sandy brown (is that a color?) but these days its more gray than any other color.
[Forty] What are you doing tomorrow?
Reporting for an annual physical, attempting to deliver some projects that are due, assisting with a cub scouts meeting while we visit a local television station. We’re going to get to watch the 5:00 newscast!
