• Pick up a book contract
• Call the plumber about that leak in the upstairs bath.

2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again.
(I've been blessed in that I am still in contact with most of the people I choose to be in contact with. But still a few have fallen by the wayside.)
• Joe Karpierz (who I know does ego-scans on Google, so write, man!)

• Chris Lee Birdsong (old girlfriend)
• Leila Lee Larsen (old girlfriend)

3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do.

• Not talk to myself at traffic lights.
• Perfect that mind control device I've been working on.

4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit).
• Pay off the house.
• Ensure the college educations of all my nieces and nephews.
• Buy the first hybrid SUV that rolls off the assembly line, and paint it dark blue with electic lightning bolts on the side.

• Found an organization that awards Knighthoods to Americans.

5. List five things you do that help you relax.
• Read
• Cook
• Walk
• Hot bubble baths
• Tai Chi (but only when my chi is mighty!)
