Across the stratosphere, a final message: "Give my wife my love." Then nothing more///

On of the the things I love the most about cleaning up my house is the possibility of finding something from my past. I suppose its a way to connect with my past and see how foolish I was (and how I still am). I find old letters from my lady friend in New Jersey, old birthday cards from old friends and family, drawings and doodles that I did in high school... They remind me of who I once was and the person I have now become. The other day, I was going thru my beckoning cat collection looking for one to use as a holder for my crochet hooks and paint brushes. Inside one of them, I found a paper folded up 3 times with a stick figure drawing (which was my trade mark drawing that I used to make as a teen) and with the words "the list..." written on the front.

I opened the paper and inside, in my hand writing, I found a list of names... Names of singers, athletes and celebrities... Guys who, at the time, I would "totally do". I wish I would have dated this paper. I think I must have written it some time between 2000 to 2003. Here is the list... I was an odd child then.

  • Chino (Deftones)
  • Scott Weiland (STP)
  • Ewan McGregor
  • Mike Bibby (Basketball player)
  • Nelly
  • Ludicris
  • Dave Navarro
  • Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional)
  • Mike Herrera (MxPx)
  • Maynard James Keenan (Tool/ APC)
  • Casey Affleck
  • Scot Pollard (Basketball player)
  • Collin Ferral
  • David Bowie
  • Snoop Dogg
  • Trent Reznor
  • 50 Cent
  • Brendan Frasier
  • Sonny Sandoval & Wuv (POD)
  • Billy Cogran (Smashing Pumpkins)
  • Brandon Boyd (Incubus)
  • Bono (u2)
And now that I post this god awful list, I throw it way. Its for the best... Trust me. maybe I should make a new updated list... "The List v. 2.0"
