Why yes, I HAVE had an interesting life -- Why do you ask?

When I needed to come up with a url for this blog, I chose:

http://portlytruestories.blogspot.com

My original intention was to fill this blog with true stories from my own life, because I had found that the vast majority of blog-posts and comments that truly moved and changed me were not objective reporting of facts and figures, nor outside perspectives (however witty or penetrating) on the "news of the day" -- but rather, personal stories that connected me with the author.

I actually DO tell personal stories here, and people seem to like them, and tonight I realized that I haven't told a tenth of the great stories that I could tell (like the Christmas Story), but I'm in a current quandary about where to start.

So, I thought I'd open it up to you, dear readers, and allow you to point me in a direction that you might enjoy. Please respond in comments, and let me know which of the following portlytruestories you might like to hear about next:
[UPDATE: I'll be linking to these stories from here as they're written.]

  1. Portly Does Drag
  2. Box-Car Portly Goes to Wichita
  3. The Portly Stand-Up
  4. Portly and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Bank Job
  5. In Which Portly Embarrasses a Groper at Woolworth's
  6. Portly's First (Real) Kiss
OK -- that's enough to start with, I guess.

Let me know what you want.
