Ok all... I'm truly honored to give you all my D.I.D... Some real "greats" and "old school" 'Risti's have gone before me... and I'm just a little old new guy here (half of you prob dont even know me!!!)... but hopefully you enjoy my little window into the life of James:

Ok so my fellow Boston buddy Steve shoots me a text... tells me to head to Boston Harbor for a cruise - What do I see when I come around the corner??!!!?!?!

My god!!!!!!!!!! Steve really hooked it up! Too bad I have an apparent undiagnosed case of dyslexia, and that ship is docked in port 21... my ship is in port 12:

Crap... thanks Steve! Oh well ok so all is good!!! I've heard another fellow Boston 'Risti is down in the Dominican scoping smokes for our next GTG for when Julian comes back to town!!!

When all of a sudden... a storm hits:

Ok so it's less of a storm and more like a mild drizzle but c'mon guys, I may wear a watch designed for the sea, but I don't know the first thing about boats/ocean etc... etc... etc...

It was a grim scene:

But luckily I ended up here:

[linked image]

Not soo bad!!! I could use a vacation... Now if only I could bring a few things...

2 watches

2 songs

1 book

1 movie

1 photograph

1 memory

1 meal

1 person
_________________________________

2 Watches:

If the question is 2 watches that I don't own... the question would be a lot harder... however... I'm sticking to ones that I own... soooo MUCH easier!!!!!

This crazy thing that introduced me to this crazy place that allowed me to meet you crazy folk!!!!

[linked image]

The other would be my Nomos Ludwig Given to me by a very special person... and it reminds me of her every time I wear it =)

2 Songs:

My first song is "Riding with the King" by B.B. King and Eric Clapton... I first heard this song/album sitting in the back of a cigar bar in FL during the winter... 10pm... 80 degrees... ocean 20 feet away... 2 cool drinks... my lovely lady with me... and this album. No matter what's happening, when I play this album/song, I relax and am instantly put into a good mood =)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyXPp1P8rBY

P.S. I'm not a big fan of the video... so go ahead and minimize the screen to just listen =)

The second song is "Moondance" by Van Morrison. Somehow... this song always comes on when it's just the two of us, and that makes me smile also =)

For whatever reason I can't find it online so you all will have to listen for it on the radio and think of me next time you hear it! Ha!!!!! You can go to YouTube and hear the Michael Buble version... but I'd rather not link that here (it's not as good)

1 Book:

Jack Kerouac On the Road. I haven't read this in a long time, but it shaped my outlook on life when I was in highschool, so I'd say it would be time to re-read it!!! Plus he's a Boston guy!

1 Movie:

I'd like to say one of those "thinking/intense movies" like Pulp Fiction or The Usual Suspects etc etc...

But I'd have to go with one that can make me laugh no matter what:

[linked image]


1 Photograph

My folks are both retired down in FL... complaining of the cold when it drops below 70, and early 8:30am tee times... poor folks!!! My father is getting up in age (but still plays bogey golf damn him!!!), and we try to go down once a year for his birthday to spend time with them... This picture was taken on his 80th birthday... what can I say, it was just the perfect time =)

[linked image]

1 Meal -

Give me a medium rare bacon cheeseburger

[linked image]

And LOTS of cold Bass:

[linked image]

And I'm one happy camper =))))))

1 Memory

May be a strange memory... but 5 years ago, when Lauren and I started dating... one of the first things we did together was drive down to FL... just the two of us... 26 hours in the car down... 26 hours back... We didn't stop talking once... anyone that I can spend that much time with in a small little car and not get sick of... Well... pretty much leads me to the final question:

1 Person

If you havent figured out who it would be...

I had this discussion with her last night, and told her I should prob. pick this guy:

[linked image]

Because I would have two options depending on who I was on ths island with...

1. Be stuck on that island forever with her (doesnt sound too bad)...
2. Be stuck on that island with Bear for about 12 hours and still make it home for dinner...

But if it had to be one person... how could it not be her? My woderful woman of 5 years, who... no matter what... brings me joy =)

I am not sure you picked the right person to be stuck with. 12 hours or a life time, you should have picked her. lol

It always hovers on the border of bad taste to say things like this, but your wife is... Amazing.

Great thread.
