Nitpitnicky 126 (aka 315 Things About Seth)

Well hello there. It's been nearly a year since I've posted to my weblog. For shame, right? Starting today, I'm going to try and start filling up kilobytes of data on the internet with my idiocy. And for the milestone that is post #600 (hint, it's this one), I thought that I should drag up some good old posts about myself and then continue on with that idea.

A few years ago I wrote up three posts that each featured 63 things about myself. And while some of them may have changed since I wrote them (see below), it's an extremely hard exercise to complete, but it's very gratifying when you're finished. Here they are:

And now, I present to you Nitpitnicky 126

  1. I wish I could grow a legit mustache that's not creepy.

  11. If you want me to pose for a picture, just ask.

  14. I love to try on other people's glasses and do horrible impressions of them.
  15. Small talk is one of the worst things. Evar.

  17. If I ever offer you the window or aisle seat, you can really take whichever one you want.
  18. But I'd prefer the window seat.

Loved it! I learned some new things about you. And I agree with a lot of what you say. About me, that is. And you.
