Time, Flowing Like A Meme -- Roger Green posted this to his blog, and here I am taking the meme out for a spin.

1. Ten years ago: In August 1995, my wife and I were anticipating the November birth of our son, Aaron, and I was working as News Director for a Glens Falls radio station.

2. Five years ago: In August 2000, I had been working for one year as morning news guy at an Albany radio station, and working to put together a website called Comic Book Galaxy.

3. One year ago: The worst eight months of my adult life began. Things are better now, thanks.

4. Yesterday: Worked, fixed dinner for my kids, retired to my bedroom to read an advance preview of one of the better graphic novels of this year.

5. Today: Work, doubtlessly will fix dinner for the kids, and hopefully watch last night's Daily Show and Too Late with Adam Carolla before bedtime.

6. Tomorrow: Mmm, survey says "work." It's also the day before payday, so you can be sure little to no money will be spent on much of anything.

7. Five snacks I enjoy: Popcorn, toast and jam, trail mix, animal crackers (the good ones, as Roger noted), english muffin.

8. Five bands I know the lyrics of most of their songs: Beatles, Pink Floyd, James Kochalka Superstar, Tool, Peter Gabriel.

9. Five things I would do with $100,000,000: Start a comics company; select creators would be given a yearly stipend and asked to create whatever they want to, with no editorial interference whatsoever. Hire a full-time chef/nutritionist. Let my wife choose a house for our family. Hire a driver and buy the most tank-like vehicle possible for them to drive me around in. Buy Marvel and DC Comics and return all rights to all characters to their original creators.

10. Five locations I'd like to run away to: Montreal, Toronto, Oregon, Washington State, Northampton, Mass.

11. Five Bad Habits: My "intuitive" financial planning. Avoiding the doctor. Not reading enough. Forgetting people can't read my mind. Caffeine addiction.

12. Five things I like doing: Reading. Writing. Spending time with friends. Exploring new places. Watching my children grow.

13. Five TV shows I like: Extras. The Sopranos. 24. Boston Legal. 30 Days.

14. Famous People I'd like to meet, living or dead. John Lennon, Howard Zinn, Howard Stern, Bernard Krigstein, Gary Groth.
