Once you read this, please write a LJ entry with 16 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you or comment on mine.

1. As a child, I won an award for my performance in ballet
2. At my wedding reception, I sang to my new wife: "Take a Walk on the Wild Side."
3. In response she sang to me: "Like a Virgin."
4. Our wedding reception was at the Milky Way Bar and Lanes and included bowling, table football, billiards, unlimited pizza, and - instead of traditional wedding cake - hundreds of assorted gourmet cup cakes.
5. I grew up in Croydon, Surrey; nobody is ever homesick for Croydon.
6. The first album I ever bought was "Out of the Blue" by ELO
7. I wish I could say that the first album I ever bought was "Never Mind the Bollocks" by the Sex Pistols
8. I now prefer to listen to Wilco, Beck, Radiohead, Fiona Apple, and Death Cab for Cutie.
9. "There There," "Kidsmoke," "Peggy Sue," "Never Understand," and "Blue Monday" (original version not the horrid 1988 remix) are among the world's most perfect songs
10. The best break-up song ever is "One Million Rainy Days" by the Jesus and Mary Chain.
11. The best break-up album ever is "Sea Change" by Beck.
12. I've always been bad at breaking up.
13. I am still madly in love.
14. Ann and I carried home recently a filing cabinet that I found outside the home of former U.S. Rep William Jefferson. That is the house in which Jefferson kept thousands of dollars of cash in his freezer. Sadly there was no cash in the filing cabinet.
15. I was once denounced by name as a human rights "activist" in a letter to the Washington Post by the Burmese ambassador to the United States.
16. 44 is my lucky number. I turned 44 in 2008. Obama is the 44th American President.
