Friday Five

It’s Friday, so I’m reaching back into the deeps of time, all the way back to June First, and presenting you with Friday Fun: Fives Edition.

1. What are the last five books you have read?
The Diamond Age, Or A YoungLady’s Illustrated Primer; Wetware;In The Blink Of An Eye; ShinyAdidas Tracksuits And The Death Of Camp; and YouDon’t Have To Be Evil To Work Here, But It Helps.
2. Name five places in the world you would love to go to.
I’d like to say that I’d like to visit the pyramids at Giza, but fromwhat I hear, it’s a total tourist trap. Instead, I’d like to visit thepyramids in Central America. I’d also like to visit NASA: MissionControl, Cape Canaveral and/or the JPL. I’d like to go theSmithsonian, and to the Great Barrier Reef, and to London.
3. Name five people who have strongly influenced your life, both goodand bad,… not counting family!
Hmm, tricky. I’d have to point to my sixth grade teacher, without whomI’d have become an even more odious nerd than I’d ended up; the sysopsof the BBS’s I used to use for showing that there were stillintelligent people in the world, and that they were buildingcommunities; Gene Roddenberry for his vision of a possible future;Cheile, who encouraged an odd sense of humour; and of course someonewho would be uncomfortable even being mentioned, let alone for all thereasons behind the mention… so we’ll just leave it at that.
4. Name five things you have accomplished that you are proud of, bigor small!
I thought pride was a sin? Anyway, IT Which Must Not Be Namedwas an accomplishment for sparing as much pain as it did. Then therewas last year’s big project, Do In Three Days What The Last GuyWasted Two Months In Not Doing. Then before that was— ah, right!how could I forget?— Fine, I’ll Write The Entire ProposalMyself, Here Are Your Lines. I went through that twice, so itcounts both times. And finally there was my favorite project, WhatIf They Designed An Intranet And Nobody Used it? Amazingly, theystill use it!
5. Name five things you still want to do in your life.
Well, visiting the places listed in Question Two would be a goodstart. I would love to go on a cruise. I’d like to be the recipient ofa surprise party. I’d like to learn to play a musical instrument. AndI’d like to do something that I can mention to people and have themsay, "that was you?" (but in a good way, of course.)
