This one’s been floating around my friends list the past couple of days. It’s a little amusing because it’s so much of a “best guess” thing—I don’t know what DVDs and books any of you guys own, for goodness’ sake. But anyway…

A book you own that no one on your friends list does:

Kitsune: Japan’s fox of mystery, romance and humor by Kiyoshi Nozaki would be a good candidate, because it’s apparently exceedingly rare. For non-rare books that I don’t think most people on my friends list would have, perhaps High Tide in Tucson by Barbara Kingsolver.

A CD you own that no one on your friends list does:

Probably Emmylou Harris and Linda Rondstadt’s Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions would be a good candidate, or Matraca Berg’s Lying to the Moon and Other Stories. (If anyone else I know listens to alternative country, they haven’t admitted it.)

A DVD/VHS tape you own that no one on your friends list does:

Probably “Smoke Signals.”

A place you’ve been that no one on your friends list has been:

The Rosehill Cemetery in Meridian, Mississippi to visit the grave of the king of the gypsies.
