Ten Things...

Saw this somewhere else and liked the idea.
Ten Things I've done that you probably haven't

1) When in Italy in 1980 I had five Italian soldiers stop me with machineguns drawn. They spoke no English, and my Italian consists of Spagehtti-os. Ended point to a map and getting through to them I was lost. They gave me money for a bus.
Which I used to buy a beer.

2) Any number of drinking stories would fit here, but lets just say that one night while bartending I drank a bottle and half of Jagermeister over the course of 9 hours. With beers of course.

3) I've driven a 1969 stingray convertible at 145 MPH. It seemed like good idea at the time....

4) Told Steve Perry of Journey to fuck off when I saw him in an airport. He wanted to use the video game (space invaders) I was playing.

5) I've been a block away from exploding buildings on two separate occasions. Very cool, but dusty.

6) I ate 6 double whoppers with cheese in one sitting.

7) I sewed two pairs of boxer shorts for myself.

8) I saw Rob Zombie and Harry Conick Jr both in the same week.

9) I tried to jump a motorcycle over a burning pile of garbage.

10) I rewired my own apartment.

There are a lot of drinking stories I could use, but I thought that would be cheating.

I can't help but wonder if this isn't what triggered the despondency that Steve Perry dwindled into.

Jon, you bad boy!

So, what happened after you tried to jump... did you make it?

I ended up having a spectacular drive through burning garbage. An am soooo not Evil Kenevil, not even Fonzie.

But the scattering burning rubbish was pretty cool...
