    Sriracha!
    2. Sunrise or sunset?
    Sunset
    3. Country you don’t like even though you’ve never been there? (evil dictator-controlled countries excepted)
    I wouldn’t say “don’t like” about any, but there are some I don’t feel any particular drive to visit. For example, I suppose, Haiti.
    4. How hot are your showers?
    Darned hot.
    5. Cursive or all caps?
    Cursive.
    6. Favorite two R.E.M. songs?
    This changes from day to day, but “Perfect Circle” and “Camera” today.
    7. Most annoying store in modern indoor malls?
    I haven’t been in one in a while. I’m not sure! Ian said Hollister and that’s a good choice, probably. I’ve never seen the inside of one.
    8. Least favorite part of driving?
    Parking in many Seattle neighborhoods, such as Capitol Hill, etc.
    9. Favorite non-Lincoln non-Jefferson 19th-century President?
    Adams, for no good reason at all. Basically because I loved the movie 1776.
    10. Most loved sports hero from your school?
    No idea. High school? Eh, don’t remember. College, I went to Evergreen, where sports were very much NOT a priority.

    I had one of the best vacations EVER deep in the heart of Belize (www.mopanriverresort.com). It was a little side trip into Guatemala to see the ruins (Tikal, if memory serves) that scared me to death.
    All I’m sayin’ is give Belize a chance. ;-)
