Unlike my friend Ken Burbary who suggested I do this, I had ZERO idea that this was the new MEME busting through the internet. I got tagged last week and am a little slow in responding, but respond I did. In the meantime, this meme has made it’s way to Motor City Connect and you can learn about a bunch of people here.
Here are the rules for my fellow bloggers:
- Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
- Share seven facts about yourself in the post – some random, some weird.
- Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
- Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.
5 I just finished finished writing this and fat fingered the keyboard. It took me to another web page and I lost the entire post. I do this at least once a month and still remain in good spirits.
1. I am an urban cowboy. If we run into each other you will likely see me wearing cowboy boots. I have two pair currently; A black pair of shark skin and a black pair of ostrich belly. I have had at least one pair of boots for the past 25 years. Here’s the kicker: I don’t like either Country or Western music. If you play it in your car, I will get out. I will leave restaurants that have it on. CMT is a waste of a network as far as I am concerned. I don’t like the hats, buckles or shirts either…just so you know.
2. I am an introverted extrovert. Or is it an extroverted introvert? Either way, I am 50/50 on the idea of meeting new people and I really don’t like crowds (unless they came to see me). It’s actually a pretty interesting dichotomy considering who I am and what I do.
3. My mother used to teach ballet in the basement of our house. So guess who used to take ballet in the basement of our house? Yes. That’s right. ME. I took two years of ballet. In fact I was the lone black sheep in the field of 12 sheep during the recital. For the record I was nine and yes I looked smashing in my tights and leotard.
4. I have a Masters degree in common sense. While I was working on my second major, Communications (my first is Psychology) someone told me that I was trying to get a degree in “Common sense”. I remember pointing out to him how uncommon common sense truly was. He quickly agreed. Three years later EMU handed me a sheepskin that says M.A. and it was in Communications. They also gave me a graduate assistantship. It was kind of cool to get to try out teaching as a career at the college level on someone else’s dime.
5. I love me some little yellow people. I remember sitting in my suitemate’s room watching his TV in December of 1989. It was my first semester of college and the very first airing of a then new show…The Simpson’s. Since that day, I have missed less than 10 airing of first run episodes. When I bartended during college people would be at the bar and have to wait until a commercial to get served. If new people walked in, the regulars filled them in on the rules. Too funny.
6. I would rather work with you than for you. I am not sure why, but I am not that good of an employee. I think I have some issues with authority. I may have to work on that in 2009. And by that I mean making sure I am the authority
7. I find myself very funny. I am not saying I am the funniest person I know, but I do make myself more than anyone else I know. Perhaps it’s the amount of time I spend with me. Perhaps I just know my humor. I remember someone once saying “you’re kind of funny”. I told him it was a bonus that he found me funny as my goal is simply to amuse myself. And simply amused I am.
