100 Things: 16-20

1-5 ~ 6-10 ~ 11-15

16) The city of Victoria, Texas, does not have any sort of tribute to one of its more famous native sons, Stone Cold Steve Austin. I know this because I once drove 100 miles out of my way to check.

17) The first full beer I ever had in my life was given to me by John Carroll Lynch.

18) I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

19) I hate my teeth. They are crooked and make me embarrassed to talk to people. But I am equally embarrassed to admit that I am this vain. I am trapped in a vicious cycle of wanting my teeth straightened while wanting to pretend that I am comfortable with my looks. Sometimes I hope that I will take a terrific spill on my bike and that reconstructive surgery will be required. If I am really lucky, the accident will also break my crooked nose, with which I am equally unhappy.

20) I spent most of my childhood lamenting the fact that I am not black.

You got crooked teeth and you can't even grow a black beard. You must really be gene-poor.

John Carroll Lynch was awesome in Gothika.

Perhaps the wonky teeth thing is why you're such an anglophile. We all have crooked teeth here, even the PM.

You vain, self-centered man.

Okay, just kidding. I want to get veneer finishes for my front teeth, they've never looked good. I also hate my chin. Damn my chin.

Bike accident? Hmmm. Now you've got me thinking.

And the great thing about a bike accident is that the surgery cost would be covered by insurance.
