Top Fives

Well. Courtney included me on her list of five people whose top five lists she would like to see. And since I’ve never done one of these memes before, I thought I would. Also, I don’t have anything else to write about (except that I have episcleritis, but who wants to hear about that, anyway?). So here you go. Enjoy.

1. 5 things under $5 that I couldn’t live without

  • hand lotion (I’m a little OCD about wanting to lotion my hands after washing them.)
  • Crest Whitening Plus Scope Cool Peppermint Paste
  • mocha lattes
  • sunscreen
  • a bottle of Modelo Especial when we eat at our favorite (or at least closest) Mexican restaurant

2. 5 favorite movies
  • What’s Up Doc?
  • Clueless
  • Casablanca
  • Bringing Up Baby (who knew Courtney and I would have two overlapping movies?)
  • Little Miss Sunshine

3. 5 baby names I love
  • Zoe
  • Olivia
  • Oliver (but obviously I wouldn't have an Olivia and an Oliver—it’s either/or, people)

  • Megan (okay, so I ran out of names there at the end)

4. 5 songs I could listen to over and over again

  • The Luckiest by Ben Folds

  • Don’t Ask Me by OK Go

5. 5 people who have influenced me in a positive way

  • Andrew (I eat Thai food because of him)
  • Amalah (I’m a better writer because of her)
  • Ron Clemons (Partly due to his encouragement, I became an editor)

8. 5 obsessions I have now

  • American Idol
  • blogging

9. 5 places I would like to go

It was hard lemonade--I would hardly call that a wine cooler. Ok, maybe it's a wine cooler--but there's no wine in it, so how does that work?

I was going to write something funny, but then I saw that the only other blog comment was from my wife. Now I can't comment. Shit I think I just did. Its like we don't have jobs.
