This isn't me, either. This is merely another reasonable facsimilie... Mark Russell.
I think, therefore I am, I think,...
I have two birthdays - my mother says that I was born on one day, the state says that I was born on the next day. (I trust my mom, after all, she was there! After surviving high school (5 of them, over 4 years), I did this, and that, and quite a bit of the other...
Now I work for the US Government Printing Office, and go to college, and wonder when I get to sleep, eat, etc.
By the time I was 18, I had missed seeing over 100,000 acts of violence that I would have seen had I lived in a "normal" family. (What is normal, anyway?)
Mind you, we did have TV - strictly limited and monitored. M*A*S*H, Quincy, and Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes were my childhood favorites.
Now? M*A*S*H, Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes, Burns and Allen, Dragnet, and any one of Wallace and Gromit's adventures that I can find. Oh, I forgot to tell you - I like nature programs also.
Also, certain BBC comedies are something that I won't miss - like May to December, Are You Being Served?, Keeping Up Appearances, and Waiting for God. (I do, however, loathe Mr. Bean - after all, I must draw the line somewhere!)
Politics? That comes from the Grrek prefix poly, meaning many, and ticks - you know what those are... (Take note, Bill and Newt!!)
Th-th-that's all, folks (for now).
