Thursday Thirteen: Diversions


So what do you do when you need to get away from it all? Yell, “Calgon, take me away!” and soak for a few hours in a luxurious tub?

Or do you do what the ShapeShifter boys do…

1. I’ve mentioned before that Trevor rebuilt a Vincent motorcycle from the spare parts he found behind Hammer, Wrench, and Torque’s garage. That’s where he found the frame, too.

2. Mitchell likes to swim. In Daniel’s pool.

3. Daniel is a news junkie. He’ll watch CNN and read all about current events.

4. Eric writes letters to the many girls he’s made friends with along the way.

5. Eric’s also the band’s Internet junkie.

6. Daniel used to oversee the band’s fan club. Mostly because Val ran it and he lived with Val, so he was sort of stuck with it. Then the band hired one of those services to run it. No one misses the time invested, but they’re not so sure the quality’s there.

7. Mitchell likes to ride his mountain bike up in the hills overlooking the city.

8. Trevor hangs out in strip clubs. In the pre-Kerri days, it’s not uncommon for Mitchell to join him.

9. Daniel and Val have more … cutting edge tastes. Don’t ask; you may not want to know.

10. Mitchell likes to hang out at Lyric’s store.

11. Eric hangs out with various members of his family. He’s got a big family.

12. Trevor will deny this to the grave, but he’s got a soft spot for old movies. The black and white classics. Casablanca. Rebel Without a Cause. Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And the old, cheesy horror flicks, too.

13. Me, I spend time with my fictional band. I’d love it if you joined me — if you haven’t, already.

I think I’ve done a similar list… does anyone remember? Can you find one in the archives? If so, speak up. You might get a present from me!

    May I ask a couple questions about Eric and Daniel? Does Eric WRITE his letters — ballpoint to paper — or does he EMAIL them? And how stringent is Daniel with pool etiquette? Does he make Mitchell rinse off before diving in? (I”m betting the answers will be “email” and “not very.”)

    Trevor likes old movies and strip clubs – should he be seeing someone, professionally I mean? 😉

    Interesting list. Sorry that I’m a day late and probably a dollar short in making the blog rounds.

    Happy Friday to you.

    WOW! Love your list. And no I am not a Calgon take me away type of girl.

    I would hang on the more rowdy side of the shapshifter. Or maybe I was thinking it was my alter ego that would head straight into shapeshifter land.

    Great list!
