Kuno-ugh!
Haven't written in a while, and devon had a nice meme, so allow me to spread the inflection:

SIX NAMES I GO BY (or did in the past):
Mikey, Uncle Mikey, Duane, Nick, That Guy What Sits Behind The Drumset, Pull Toy

THREE THINGS I AM WEARING RIGHT NOW:
NordicTrac hiking t-shirt, black fleece pullover, comfortable jeans with just a little bit of wear

THREE THINGS I WANT VERY BADLY AT THE MOMENT:
To be out backpacking, my bachelor's degree, a new girlfriend who's at least semi-sane and semi-mature

THREE PEOPLE WHOM I HOPE WILL DO THE MEME:
Neil Peart, wrestlegirl (even though she never would), anyone else who reads this

THREE THINGS I DID LAST NIGHT:
Ate Chinese food with Gretchen, worked on extra credit for my Physics class, sorted through my backpacking gear

THREE PEOPLE I LAST TALKED TO ON THE PHONE:
super_bunnyz_01, mein fiend George, mein other fiend Gretchen

THREE THINGS I AM GOING TO DO TOMORROW:
Go to study group for my exam on Monday, yell at the sky for raining when I want to do a warm-up hike, piracy

THREE OF MY FAVORITE DRINKS:
Strawberry shake (the real kind), Guiness (even though I can't drink it anymore), cool clean water

THREE THINGS THAT MADE ME SMILE TODAY:
Mein other other fiend Chris' kids, the Venture Bros. episode "The Lepidopterists", an impossible pool shot that went in

EDIT: wrestlegirl went against type and deigned to do the meme. I'm honored. Just when you think you have a handle on how the world works, something happens that shows you that you actually know nothing. ;) I've so gotta meet you someday, sistah.

On a related note to everyone else, I like to think that I'm a good writer (and people, what I put here is not what I consider to be my real writing...although I should sling an example on here someday). There are very, very few people I've known who make me feel like a grade schooler with my writing when I read theirs, and wrestlegirl is one of them. Writers don't often write with the idea of deliberately crafting something captivating - the best simply put what's in their heads and hearts and part of that pathos inadvertently melds with the words, turning them into a powerful sliver of their life, a little living facet of who the person behind the pen is. If nothing else, it gives me something to shoot for.

The impossible pool shot! Those moments are always awesome. I have been playing a lot of that lately. My companion on these ventures is a master at those.
