Here are items 1-5, if you're interested.
6) When I was 11 years old, I served as a canoe chauffeur for the mayor of Houston. The Citizens' Environmental Coalition hosted a flotilla of canoes that traveled down a section of Buffalo Bayou, and Mayor Kathy Whitmire came along. A reporter and photographer for the Houston Chronicle also came along, so it was decided that it would be a good idea to put the mayor in a canoe with the only kid on hand -- me. I think perhaps some boneheaded handler told the mayor that she would look more leader-like if she was at the front of the boat (the bow, for you nautical buffs), and I was placed in the back (the stern). But if you know anything about canoeing, you know that the person who actually controls the boat always sits in the back.
7) I enjoy putting things in alphabetical order.
8) Hundreds of faiths claim that theirs is the One True Religion. I live in fear that one of them is right.
9) Sometimes I find myself thinking about what it would be like to be a dad. I'm not sure if I do this because I really want kids or because I have some ridiculous and misplaced sense of duty to add more people to the Earth's population. At the same time, I secretly hope that I am sterile, which would then save me from having to decide whether I want kids.
10) One of my great regrets in life is that I have yet to front a band. Preferably a blues band. Unfortunately, that would require some, you know, talent.
