congrats to the recovering owl on posting comment #1800
and thanks to all of you who have posted answers to the meme below. (5 things in 24 hours)
I have a Spero article to finish on deadline and I am wiped (as usual for a Thursday). So I will probably be scarce again - unless I start goofing off instead of serious writing.
Why do I do this to myself? (procrastinate, I mean). I KNOW that the article is due every 2 weeks, I know what I will be writing about - I just can't seem to will myself to do the scut work of actually writing it...........
later gators!

I was given this one a week or so ago. I don't even remember who passed it on to me!
"List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can't really understand the fuss over."
Here goes - in no particular order.
1. Opera. I like musical theatre and some operettas, but most opera just leaves me cold. I think that part of it is that I find most high pitched singing to be positively painful.
2. Cilantro. Actually, I despise the flavor of this herb. It tastes like soap to me. Yet lately it seems to find its way into everything from bean dip to chicken wraps. I would not be surprised to learn that some one had developed a cilantro ice cream.
3. Going to the gym. If I were going to pay someone to help me get regular exercise, I would sign up for dance classes. Or I would buy a bicycle and use it.
4. Reality TV. My life and work have much more drama and are much less predictable.
5. Snow sports from Skiing to whatever. I will say that it can be fun to slide down a hill once or twice a winter, but to spend all that money for the opportunity to break bones frankly puzzles me.

I am supposed to pass this meme on to a couple of other bloggers - OK, Mr. Luse, Mr. ORama, Erik - go for it

Thanks to Cole for the link.
I wish they had included some 60s and 70s bands - or how about some AA acts like Allison Kraus, Paula Cole, Patty Griffin, or even Dolly Parton! How about Harry Nillson, Randy Newman, Mary Chapin Carpenter (I guess they are all too 'old'). Well, what about Norah Jones? Sheryl Crow? Madeline Peyroux?Lucinda Williams (Car wheels on a gravel road, still makes me cry)?

I get the feeling that this quiz was written by a guy. I'm probably wrong, but the inherent bias in the list got to me.

And yes, I am putting off the serious blogging. I'm on call, looking out the window at what seems to be a gathering storm, and wondering just how many moms will roll through the doors tonight.
