I've been tagged. Challenged to list five of my weird habits. The real challenge is to hold it down to five. I stopped at nine.
I watch HOUSE and believe I have whatever mystery ailment the patient
of the week has. My doctor then assures me that bleeding out of my eyes
is normal, just drink a glass of water.
2) I don’t like anyone
looking over my shoulder when I’m writing, be it a script, email, or
love letters to Jessica Alba or Sandy Koufax.
3) I listen to 60s
music when I write. And this includes radio station jingles from the era
and Joanie Sommers Pepsi commercials. I love Joanie Sommers.
4) I can’t watch an old black and white movie from the 30’s or 40’s without thinking “everyone I’m looking at is dead”. Not that this spoils my enjoyment.
I go through breakfast phases. I eat the same thing every day for a
couple of years and then switch. Currently it’s macadamia nuts and
raisins. If I ever switch to Lucky Charms get “old Betsy” off the wall and shoot me.
6) I have no blood so I always dress warm. Stop making fun of Cosby for wearing those sweaters. They look cool.
I'm afraid if I install any computer program I'm going to hit the wrong
button and crash every computer on the planet. I call this Y2Ken.
As a former disc jockey, I still talk-up records in my car. Right up to
the vocal. I’m a master at this. It’s maybe my greatest skill…which is
unfortunate since it’s also utterly useless. KHJ Boss Radio is not
coming back anytime soon.
9) I can't leave a baseball game until it's over. This quirk has served me well when I was announcing them.
Okay, so what are some of yours? This is a revised re-post, by the way.
