Facts and Favorites

A few facts about me, in case you were wondering. (Were you?)

Birthday: July 1, 1959
Age: 58
Height: 6' 2"
Home: Somewhere in the San Juan Islands, Washington, USA
Sister: Julie (age 61)
Brother: David (age 54)

I often get asked what my favorites are, too. I like this because when I answer I sometimes get blank stares, or, "Eww, that's gross!" in response. (Especially to my favorite food.) Careful what you ask for I always say. Heh heh.

Favorite Color: Turquoise (The color of Puget Sound on a sunny day.)

Favorite Food: Sushi (Especially octopus and eel.) "Eww, that's gross!"

Favorite Sport: Baseball (Even the best miss the pitch 70 percent of the time.)

Favorite Movie: 2001 A Space Odyssey (I first saw it when I was 9... I still don't know what it's about.)

Favorite Music: Folk and Classical (in winter), Rock and Reggae (in summer).

Favorite Picture book: Where the Wild Things Are (It was my first book ever.)

Favorite Chapter book: The Lord of the Rings (I read them long before they were famous.)

Favorite Book I wrote: The Jupiter Stone (My last book is always my favorite. So, of course that means they've all been my favorites at one time.)

That's all for now, but check back. Hardly a day goes by that I don't get interested in something new!
