Seven Things

By Deane Barker • Posted on December 24, 2008

Aaron Mentele forwarded a meme. The rules, copied from his post:

The topic is “7 things you wish you didn’t know about me.” Here goes.

  1. I love Justin Timberlake. Seriously. I think he’s an amazing artist and gets too much crap from haters.

  2. When my grandfather was 19-years-old, he was translating Bibles in Kenya. He and my grandmother had three children deep in Africa, did a lot of good there, and lived to tell about it. Knowing this fact and comparing it against what I was doing when I was 19 really, really depresses me.

  3. I am a born-again Christian, which I find harder and harder to talk about every day I spend on the Internet. There’s a tide of atheism rolling in that’s getting tougher and tougher to hold your head above these days. I have a lot of guilt over this.

  4. At one time, I was a Webmaster of “the biggest James Bond site on the Internet” – Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (no link, ‘cause it’s no longer around…). It was reallybig – we interviewed directors of the films, we hobnobbed with the writer of the novels, we got invited to the film premiers, United Artists linked to our site from, etc. While I love that this happened, it feels really juvenile to talk about.

  5. I have very little life outside my job. Every day, I find it harder and harder to relate to anything that doesn’t have something to do with the business.

  6. I find Guitar Hero incredibly repetitive and boring beyond about five minutes.

  7. I hate dogs. Absolutely loathe them. When a dog licks me, I have to restrain myself from breaking its damn neck.
