Aye, Mehm.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Brian @ 10:49 am

Jennifer did it and Eric did it and Jim did it and Gwynne did it. Oh, wait. No she didn’t.

I AM too tall to fit in many cars.

I WANT to be more organized.

I WISH I could find a good watercolor class.

I HATE standing close to other tall people. I don’t know how normal-sized people tolerate not being able to see over the crowd.

I MISSpell when I type because my fingers have minds of their own.

I HEAR the new iBooks are out, with Intel processors…

I WONDER how much more we don’t know, and how much of what we do know is wrong.

I REGRET very little, now that you mention it.

I AM NOT a sports fan, try though I may.

I DANCE not.

I CRY when necessary.

I AM NOT ALWAYS as disciplined as I want to be.

I MAKE WITH MY HANDS sketches and drawings and decks and playsets and bicycles and toys and whatever else I can possibly build.

I WRITE with many words where perhaps few would suffice.

I CONFUSE “tolerating” and “condoning”

I NEED focus.

I SHOULD draw more.

I START too many things.

I FINISH what needs to be finished.

I TAG my stuff with keywords so I can find it all…



  1. Okay, Okay, I’ll give it a shot. ;-)

  3. So, when was the last time you stood with people taller than you? At a Cavs game? ;-)

  4. It’s happened twice that I remember clearly.

    The last time was last Saturday, at the soccer game. The other coach may have been an inch taller than I am. It was OK, because he was only one guy, but I certainly noticed it when we stood close enough to speak to each other.

    The time before that was in college – 1994, probably. I was walking between classes outside and found myself behind a group of four or five guys whose heads I could not see over. I had to stop for a second and let them get ahead.

    Before that, I probably hadn’t gotten used to being tall yet. So yet, it’s rare, which surely adds to the wierd factor when it happens.

    I think it’s a version of claustrophobia. I don’t mind being in small spaces, but it bothers me to be in a large space and not be able to see around it.

  5. Wow, how tall are you? I’m tall for a woman (5’9″) but not compared to most men, so I don’t have the claustrophobic tendancies, but I do understand that strange feeling of talking to women who are taller than me when I’m so used to being the tallest. And even I struggle with head room in some cars, so I can imagine it’s almost impossible for you. When my husband and I visit Chinatown, in San Francisco, we can spot each other blocks away even when the streets are crowded with Chinese people. ;-)

  6. I’m 6’6″ – Michael Jordan height. My problem is that it’s all in my spine – I wear normal size pants, but have a really hard time finding shirts that (a) stay tucked in and (b) reach to my wrists.

  7. That is tall! But you don’t play basketball, do you? Me neither.
