Friday Five

1. What is your most prized material possession?

There are a few things, all of them remembrances of particular events. One is a baseball that I got a bunch of Dodgers, most importantly Sandy Koufax, to autograph when I was in Vero Beach in 1989. Another is my Buffistas Class Protector medal. Another is a stuffed Opus that was given to me by a good friend some years ago. There are a few more things like that.

2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest?

Really hard to say, I still have a lot of things, like games and books, that I had in high school, or even grammar school. Maybe my original copy of All-Star Baseball (a game). I've probably had that since fifth or sixth grade. The oldest thing I have that is still in continuous use is a tie pin of a chess knight that I got in freshman year of high school.

3. Are you a packrat?

Oh yeah. Come by it genetically, as both of my parents are pack rats, too.

4. Do you prefer a spic-and-span clean house? Or is some clutter necessary to avoid the appearance of a museum?

I prefer it clean, but it never is, and I don't mind clutter enough to do anything about it.

5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knickknacks here and there?.

Right now, there are no themes, unless chaos is a theme. There may be at some point, but that would involve work, so not bloody likely.

One of the things I don't miss about being married is the feeling that I'm living in someone else's house. I pretty much got NO say in how things were decorated, except for the room that was my office/den. I've seen this a lot. The husband gets one room for himself (unless there are children, then he's SOL), and possibly the basement. Everything else are belong to the wife.

  • Baby, It's Cold Outside...

    So, it was -10°F outside when I got up this morning, just before sunrise. I don't recall ever seeing a colder morning. Just thought I'd mention it.

  • Halloween 2014

    It's a chilly, windy, misty night here, so there hasn't been a lot of trick-or-treat traffic so far. That a shame, because it was pretty nice out…

  • We're Having a Heat Wave...

    For the first time in what has been an extraordinarily temperate summer, the temperature has broken 90° here at Casa Machina. We are the midst of…
