Thanks. I'm okay. I just say "ummm. I don't remember" a lot.

I still have yet to come up with 5 things about me that are even slightly interesting.

Where does your obvious interest in art come from?  Are you an artist or connected to the art world in any way?

I have said it before and I'll say it again. Everyone is interesting.

1. My first name is not Blake, it's Josef.. I'm named after my great uncle, who was a train conductor in Sweden. Josef Blake Holstrom.
2. During a summer semester in Rome, a friend and I biked from Rome to Naples in under 24 hours with only a compass to guide us.
3. I severed my pinky finger when I was 8, and subsequently had it sewn back on by my father (who was a volunteer EMT).
4. I climbed a mountain barefoot on a bet.
5. I won a "Best Essay" award at a Phi Alpha Theta Historical Society conference at West Point Military Academy and it was then submitted for publication.


.... never heard back on that last one.  :-\

Did it heal properly?  nerves and all?

More or less, it does not bend as well as my left hand, but it's never got in the way of any of my hobbies (guitar, pinky wrestling, etc.).

I remember a story about a bike trip to Naples and you ended up stranded or something?

My middle name is Blake as well and that's what most people call me. Never brought it up because I figured that would just be confusing.
