Here's how it works: Comment on this entry that you'd like to play,and I will give you a letter.Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

filkerdave tagged me with the letter "J."
  1. Jokes. Love them. Live for them.

  2. John. The name of both my maternal grandfather (aka "Grandpop") and my great-Uncle Pete (my maternal grandmother's oldest brother), who was one of my favorite uncles.

  3. Jobs. I've got three of them.

  4. Journal. I am guilty of blogging. Big time.

  5. Johnson Hall. My dorm at Columbia University; where I got to watch Ryan O'Neil and Fred Gwynne film "So Fine" from the comfort of my balcony.

  6. Judaism. My religion. It's kind of in the background, but it's part of who I am.

  7. Java. In this case I'm thinking "coffee." I love coffee. If I weren't so sensitive to caffeine I'd drink a lot more of it.

  8. Jerry Lewis. In his prime as a director/actor he was great. More important to me, he was one of the first people to come out and say "prednisone caused my weight gain." After he did that, lots of doctors took patients (like me) seriously when we complained of prednisone's side effects.

  9. Joanie. A cousin of mine who, in her far-too-short life, had a tremendous impact on my own life.

  10. Journalism (Broadcast). What my degree is in, and one of my greatest passions.
