25 Random Things and Whatnot – Shane

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

  1. If I could get a non-alcoholic/low-calorie beer that tasted like Sam Adams or Hahpoon IPA, I would drink it with every meal.
  2. If I had to rank my favorite sports team in some sort of Mad Max-like death match, it would be Red Sox (barely edging out), Celtics, Cork hurling (Rebels), Patriots, Bruins, Cork rugby.
  3. Jim Rice is my favoritest sports player EVAH.
  4. Tivo is the greatest invention since penicillin.
  5. Caspar David Friedrich is my favorite artist, and I am an Art History major, so that shit means something.
  6. Anyone who has more than 100 friends up in this piece – Facebook, for the white folks – slightly weirds me out.
  7. People who oppose gay marriage aren’t bigots, they’re just wrong.
  8. “Children of Men” is the best movie of the past 10 years…maybe ever.
  9. Cats are fucking adorable; anyone who thinks otherwise is a communist.
  10. My favorite military award is the Samuel Sharpe Award, even though it isn’t from the Army or DOD.
  11. I have every intention of settling in Plymouth, MA, if I can convince my wife. It is far superior to Hingham (too snooty) and Scituate (full of meth-heads). Ha-yooooo!
  12. I had fun in Afghanistan.
  13. The fact that I haven’t been to Ireland in over 10 years is disgraceful.
  14. Robert Heinlein was smarter than 99.9% of the political class.
  15. My dream garage would include an early Series Land Rover, a 1961-5 Lincoln Continental, and a mid-60s Mopar sleeper. I have the first one.
  16. I want to be a high school Latin teacher after I retire. The wife has talked me out of being a girl’s Catholic high school Latin teacher and wrestling coach. For now.
  17. The re-imagined “Battlestar Galactica” is the greatest science fiction show of all time.
  18. “The Wire” is the greatest television show of all time.
  19. I loved Hawaii more than anyplace in the world and miss it every day, but I hated the weather.
  20. On the 8th day, God created spaghetti carbonara and bleu cheese.
  21. Biggie Smalls was the greatest rapper that ever lived. Take that, Tupac fans!
  22. My family is weird in a good way.
  23. I spell-check text messages.
  24. The second amendment is the second one for a reason, ’cause that shit ensures the other ones.
  25. I used a random system to number these after I wrote them, since they’re supposed to be random.
