Box meme

"So, say you were meeting a new person--blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with a dozen things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. "What would you put in the box? And a copy of your journal or a link to your LJ would be the same thing as just telling them directly, yourself, so that's not allowed."

My list:

1. A short movie of my dog playing with her food, bumming pear slices off Warren, going into "Tasmanian Devil" mode, and doing her "Muppet Dance."
2. A book of my music.
3. At least one computer manual I've written -- preferably one with an "Easter Egg" stuck in it.
4. A book with my recipes.
5. A CD containing recordings of me performing some of my material.
6. An aircheck of at least one of my newscasts.
7. A photo album containing pics of me wearing some of the garments and costumes I've made over the years.
8. A copy of my Jewish liturgical songbook.
9. A bowl I've turned on a lathe.
10. A cup, bowl, or vase I made on a potter's wheel.
11. My Roland PMA-5.
12. A photo containing all my closest friends (yeah, like such a thing exists).

Also in the meme...

"What one thing would you add to the box to represent me or my tastes?
