First, alive. I'm getting to the age where self-abuse (not what you're thinking!) takes its toll on your body.

10 years will bring much more confidence to my reactions to events and interactions with people. For much of my life, I believed that I was just barely adequate, and that sometime, someone would find me out. But over the past several years, I've realized that people do like me for who I am, and that people respect me for how I act and what I believe in.

I feel comfortable as a peer, whether social or professional, now.

Now, yes, because it's me. I've been Aaron for a little over 40 years. I don't see myself as anyone else.

When I was younger, I did want to change my name, but only because the trinket manufacturers (bike license plates, key chains, etc.) didn't have my name on many items. (Evidently they didn't see that "Aaron" was the 31st most popular name for boys born in 1970...)

Zzzzzzz.....I fall asleep on planes easily, which is a good thing. I'm not afraid of flying, but am uncomfortable in crowded spaces with no real way to escape. Which will segue into my next post - my latest plane trip (and what happened when I got to my destination).

I would rather be disemboweled with rusty tools than attempt to shop on Friday.

Nope - in fact, I contravene superstition intentionally. I've picked out #13 to wear on sports teams, and I welcome this guy coming around the house and cadging treats.

Of course, I'm about 20 years too old for Sam.

[Error: unknown template qotd] No it's not. It's the *19th* anniversary of the airing of the first Simpsons episode. I hope someone got fired for this! Worst. Writer'sBlock. Ever.

[livejournal.com profile] grishnash, my friend Chaz, my dad, and a few hundred other people in a Las Vegas hotel ballroom.

Oh, but I also watched the first two periods of the Penguins-Devils game at the bar before I left. I must be Canadian at heart (Amy thinks William Shatner's my biological father.

Not my experience, but a friend of mine who was a bus driver told a rider not to eat a messy sandwich on the bus - they guy threw the sandwich at him, and he got pepper juice in the eye and had to go to the emergency room.
