First of all, please head over to Be A Good Dad and check out my book review. This week I review Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? by Dr. Seuss. It’s one of my favorite Seuss books. Also, I’ll be posting over there every Tuesday, so stop by. Comments are welcome as always. 🙂 Really, though, I just hope you enjoy reading about some good children’s books.
Now for the fun stuff. Mellifluous Dark tagged me for a meme, so I figured I’d give that a whirl.
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to your blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here we go…
- I always put my left shoe on first. It just feels weird doing it the other way around. Same with my hockey skates. Always left first.
- When I was little, I asked my parents what state we lived in and they told me Pennsylvania. This shocked me and scared me a little bit, as I worried we lived in the same place as Dracula (Transylvania).
- I hate elevators. I have been trapped a few times, once for 15 minutes, and therefore avoid them at all costs. I have confronted this fear a bit recently, but I still get nervous when I have to ride an elevator.
- I have owned every Nintendo console ever produced (not including the handhelds) except for the Wii, which I hope to one day acquire. I still have all my game systems, too. I never throw anything away.
- I grew up in a very small, rural town. I only had 89 people in my graduating class, and that was considered big. One bad thing about a small school is that if you gain a reputation in first grade, chances are it follows you all the way to twelfth grade. Try getting a date to the prom when you are known as “the paste eater”.
- My first car, a 1973 Beetle, had a malfunctioning gas gauge, among other malfunctioning things. For the first year that I owned the car, I really had no idea how much gas I had in the tank. I fixed it after being stranded driving home from a workout one summer. I loved that car, but don’t miss its “personality”.
- I used to set up “boobie traps” in the woods in my back yard to entrap my neighbor. We put a string with an apple on it at eye level between two trees and had a trip-wire at foot level. When he was walking through the woods and saw the apple he would trip on the wire and the apple would fall and land on his head. Yes, I was negatively influenced by The Goonies.
Ok, I’m supposed to tag people because it’s in the rules, and I hate to break the rules. If I tag you and you don’t want to take part, that’s OK too. I promise I won’t cry (too much)
