I feel like writing lists tonight. Sometimes I start them in my head, and the "Actors I Particularly Love" got started while I was falling asleep last night.

Kevin Corrigan
Jake Gyllenhaal
Kevin Kline
John Hannah
River Phoenix
Kenneth Branagh
Kevin Spacey
Chris Cooper
Timothy Olyphant
William H. Macy
Naveen Andrews


Actresses I Particularly Love (in no particular order)
Audrey Hepburn
Grace Kelly
Helena Bonham Carter
Cate Blanchett

Dead Technology (and Such) That I Remember Fondly, Thereby Showing My Age
  • the Atari 2600 video game console (on which we played primarily Pong and Frogger)
  • 8 Track tapes (which I only remember from when I was very young)
  • "laser disc" players
  • record players (now called "turntables" and apparently used primarily by DJs)
  • VCR tapes
  • audio cassette tapes (and the clunky tape players with the big rectangular buttons)
  • floppy disks (the big, black, square, actually floppy-ish ones)
  • correction fluid
  • rotary dial phones
  • the Nintendo Gameboy (on which I only ever played Tetris)
  • the Sony Walkman (in fact, I still often refer to my CD player as "my Walkman" without noticing until someone looks at me funny)
  • Usenet newsgroups like alt.swedish.chef.bork.bork.bork
