I’ve stolen the list (but not the answers!) from Derrick Ferguson, who is a a fine pulp writer and you really should read his stuff.

39 odd things about me…

  1. Do you put ketchup on hot dogs? No.
  2. Choice of soda? Pepsy Twist or Sprite.
  3. Do you put salt on watermelon? I don’t eat watermelon.
  4. Can you swim? Like a rock.
  5. Hot dogs or burgers? Burgers.
  6. Do you believe in ghosts? I believe people see things. About their nature, I am waiting for more data.

  8. Can you do 100 push ups? In my mind.
