This entry is more symptomatic of a lack of creativity than anything else. So, spurred by a glass of whiskey & coke, I grabbed one of those circa 1998 chain letter things. With 50 questions, it’s gonna be tough to fill out in 30 minutes with any depth. Let’s learn some stuff about me.
1. FIRST NAME? Leon
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? A lion. Not a particular lion, just lions in general.
3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? Within the last week.
4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? I think sanskrit looks neat, so yes.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Glazed ham.

7. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I wouldn’t stop there…
8. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? Does this count?
9. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? I used to, but I got bored and sincerity felt better.
10. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Long gone. I ate heaps of ice blocks and watched Disney cartoons. Life peaked early.
11. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? I have. Seriously, such an underwhelming experience. I’d still like to skydive at some point but bungee jumping just felt so safe.
12. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Mounds and mounds of muesli with sliced banana, blueberries, brazil/walnuts and a little protein powder. I’m not saying it’s sustainable.
