51. If I could live in another domestic city, it would probably be Boston or Philadelphia.

52. I dreamed of going to culinary school because I love to cook. Being a house hold of one, I hardly cook a complete meal because of the left overs that are eventually thrown out.

53. When I was a teenager and before I got my drivers license, I used to day dream that my first car would be a Volkswagen Beetle. I thought they were the coolest cars. I like a manual transmission.

54. Per number 52, I have a lot of cookbooks and can sit and look/read them as if I was reading a novel.

55. Because of my love for knitting, I could do the same with knitting books.

56. I can be a very bad procrastinator. I truly HATE this about myself and wonder if I will ever be able to change it.

57. I wanted to go to graduate school, but decided against it since I never utilized my undergraduate degree toward supporting myself.

58. Sending in my last undergrad. student loan payment was a very happy day for me and another reason why I probably decided against grad. school.

59. I think that one of life’s greatest blessings is to have true peace of mind.

60. They say that being rich cannot not bring you happiness, but I know that it sure could relieve a lot of my worries!

61. When I was a young child, whenever my parents would have very loud arguments/fights with one another, I would hide in my closet because it terrified me.

62. I have never shared the above with anyone before.

63. I believe that there is a gay gene and knew from a very early age that I felt different than other boys. Of course, it wasn’t until later in life that I realized what the difference I felt was.

64. If I had to choose one Classical music composer that I would love to sit down and share dinner, a glass of wine/beer and a conversation with, it would be Beethoven. I think that he was ahead of his time. Whenever I listen to some of his music, I get goose bumps.

65. I also love the music of Vivaldi.

66. I think that Billy Idol is very sexy.

67. I love the music of Luis Miguel and also think that he is very sexy. That man can move those hips.

68. I love Tales of The City and have all of the DVD’s.

69. Keeping Up Appearances is one of my favorite British sit-coms.

70. Of course, so is Absolutely Fabulous and Are You Being Served?.

71. My favorite flower is a red tulip.

72. I very seldom go out to bars anymore; especially alone.

73. I love flannel sheets in the winter.

74. I love and respect my parents very much and thank God for them.

75. I love Curry powder.

76. My favorite condiment is mayonnaise. I despise fat-free or light ones. Give me the fat, baby!

77. I will admit that I’m a size queen, but a man with a kind heart and respect for others will win out any day!

78. I have two piercings in my left ear and one in my right that I’ve had for a very long time. I don’t wear my earrings that much anymore though. My left nipple was once pierced. I’ve thought about having it done again, but now I don’t think I could take the pain. Yes, it hurt! Does anyone know if it means anything in which nipple you have pierced? You know, kind of like when a hanky that was a certain color and worn in the back pocket of jeans, on a particular side, meant something.

79. Personally, I don’t think a Prince Albert is sexy. What if it causes you to chip a tooth or something!

80. I belong to a local knitting guild.

81. Per above, I’m the only male.

82. My blog name, ColaManKnits, is not in reference to a soft-drink, but Cola is sometimes used when referencing Columbia by locals.

83. I love choral music as well as symphonies and chamber music.

84. I love to hear a coloratura soprano sing. Mozart’s Queen Of The Night aria about makes me wet myself. A very close second is Kathleen Battle singing Johann Strauss’ Voices Of Spring from the CD New Year’s Concert from Vienna. It’s a shame that she was kicked out of The Met several years ago because she acted like such a Diva. What a beautiful singing voice she has though.

85. My favorite opera is La Traviata by Verdi.

86. I like dark beers.

87. I prefer red wines, but will drink whites.

88. I love Turning Leaf’s Zinfandel.

89. I do not like White Zinfandel. I find them too sweet.

90. I like lamb meat, but seldom eat it.

91. I would like to try goat meat.

92. I don’t like to see or hear someone being picked on or being made fun of. It hurts me for them.

93. I love snow; especially watching it fall. I think it makes everything look new again (does that make sense?)

94. One of my fondest memories of Provincetown, MA was seeing a stand-up show where the guy impersonated Bette Davis (post stroke). I kid you not, he looked and sounded just like her and if I didn’t know better, I would have sworn that it was her on the stage. “But you are Blanche… you are”!

95. I like pipe organs.

96. I will miss seeing new episodes of Will and Grace when it goes off the air this season.

97. I have never been able to find out if Sean Hayes is really gay or not. Does anyone know?

98. I love water slides and swimming pools.

99. I like Cosmopolitans. Those Sex and The City bitches have nothing on me.

100. This is weird, but I like to do data entry.


I remember a high school friend of mine wrote in my senior year book, “Without dreams, you’re dead.” This has always stayed with me and the older I get, the more I find this to be true.

    Very interesting facts of life my friend. Definitely the piercing of a left nipple has a meaning, it says you are at a top.

    Your blog is always nice and very informative about you. Keep up the good work.

    I saw Luis Miguel in concert when I lived in Guadalajara a few years ago. Dude, that man can sing, I’m tellin’ ya!! His album “Aries” is still one of my all-time favorites of all the cd’s I own.

    Regarding nos. 54 and 55 – right on, man. I have an eight foot shelf of cookbooks. Come and browse.

    I swear Sean Hayes is gay, but I haven’t been able to find anything out about him, either. Oh well. I also have to agree with you on the pipe organ. I LOVE pipe organ music, especially Bach’s. (MY favorite composer.) Anywhoo…Great list.
