Happy Birthday to our sweet, sensitive, fastidious son, brother, uncle, and cousin Ben! We miss hearing from you more often, Ben, and we've done our best to come up with things that we know you like--or at least used to like! You'll have to visit this blog far more often (like you said you would) and update us! Anyway, know that we love you and are thinking of you today!
Here's some stuff about Ben:
Ben loves singing in barbershop choruses! After stints with groups in Chicago and Salt Lake City, Ben is now with the Great Northern Union Chorus, the group that placed third at the recent nationals in Anaheim, which Ben performed at. Ben's previous groups? They used to be good but now suck. A coincidence? We think not! Congrats, Ben!
Ben is a chef! Really! A Cordon Bleu Cooking School graduate! Move back out west soon! We want dinner ala Ben!
Ben's tastes used to be a bit less high-brow. (I did post a fancied up plate of Ramen here, though.)
Cheese Nips! Further evidence of Ben's humble food beginnings....
SoBe or not SoBe, that is the question....
Ben's a Pepper!
I know Ben has been reading Mary Roach lately! Check out the first of these titles. Is there any doubt he'd love that book?
Younger Ben used to love strange and not-normally-lovable creatures. Who can forget Martin Luther King Snake and Monte Python. Rumor has it, Ben had a tarantula, too.
In Salt Lake, one of Ben's favorite shows was RadioWest with Doug Fabrizio. Ain't Doug handsome?
Another favorite was the Radio From Hell gang at X96. NOT quite so handsome...
Ben was a dungeon master!
Ben is a linguist--he has always been fascinated by languages. You'll have to give us a rundown Ben on how many you know a decent amount of....
Ben loves all things foreign. Cat fondly recalls his foreign money collection!
World citizen Ben loved his English comedies. Monte Python was a favorite...
As was Faulty Towers
Ben is a true Wright with his love of all things Beatles....
Matt recalls his liking another English band: Electric Light Orchestra. Love that Strange Magic, baby...
Night Court. A classic!
Submitted for your approval: Ben loved Twilight Zone
Any doubt he'd be a Trekkie?
How'd we do, Ben? Any of these only things of the past? Please update us! Visit the blog more often!
Love You!!! Kisses!!!!
