Don't judge.

One of my MySpace friends sent around a meme asking for people’s 5 worst traits. I think he intended for me to repost this as a bulletin on myspace, but since I seem to have hit a slight patch of blogger’s block on the RT, I’ll show it here.

By the way, add me as your myspace friend. I promise not to be a predatory kiddie porn monger.

Okay, so the idea is to admit to your five greatest faults, poor habits, negative traits, etc. (Yeah, that’s right. I asked you to be my MySpace friend and now I’m going to give you five reasons not to. Respect my honesty!)

Mike Garvey’s 5 worst traits, not in any particular order:

  1. Terrified of elephants
  2. Never seen Goodfellas, Scarface, or any of the Godfathers except the first
  3. I don’t believe in recycling
  4. I procrastinate. I’ll tell you why later.
  5. I strangle kittens.

So there you have it, Padre, my dark side for all to see. Oddly, I’d only change a couple of these if I had the power. Elephants are evil, soul-eating monstrosities and the only “change” that’ll help that is to get rid of all the elephants. I wouldn’t mind seeing any of those movies (and actually there are a lot more – these are just the few that people tell me really ought to be in my repertoire) but time and Blockbuster always seem to be against me. As for recycling, I know its heart is in the right place, but I’m just not convinced it’s doing any good. I am, at the moment, procrastinating from this (good times!) as well as a bunch of other law schoolish activities. I don’t really strangle kittens, I just couldn’t think of a fifth fault. I’m too perfect, I guess.

Editors Note: Considering this, please excuse the revisionist blogging.

Just in case anyone thinks Garvey is trying to be funny, I will be the first to vouch for the fact that he actually IS terrified of elephants.

What will you do when he/she wants to go to the circus?
