Who am I to buck a trend? Several of my blogging friends have been participating in the 5×5 thingamajiggy – it started with Benzeknees and just spread out like ooooooze from a wound. Vanessa, Carrie Rubin and Rarasaur have all joined in and if it’s good enough for those ladies, well – ’nuff said.
5 Things I Am Passionate About
- Books (which is slightly different than reading because I like to collect books – especially reference books)
- Avoiding Buttons – which is more than 5 but worthy of inclusion. Know your intolerances and avoid them, like the plague.
5 Things I Would Like to Do Before I Die
- Not die
- Learn Russian
- Meet some of my favorite authors and musicians (I’ve achieved some of this already)
- Have a house with a built in library
- Play ice hockey again
5 Things I Say A Lot
- As well
- That bodes ill
- Turn down the volume! (on the TV)
- What can I say about this elixir?
- Can I have a bite?
5 Books or Magazines I have Read Lately
- The Anatomist’s Apprentice – Tessa Harris
- When Christ and His Saints Slept – Sharon K Penman
- A Short Stay in Hell – Steven L Peck
- Too Many Cooks – Rex Stout

5 Favorite Movies
- Waiting for Guffman (all Christopher Guest movies)
- Fargo (all Coen Brothers movies)
- Monty Python and the Holy Grail (all Monty Python movies)
And there you go – enthralling, eh?
I’m lifting this right off of Vanessa’s post – forgive my transgression…
