I Got Tagged

OK, so Girl and Dog tagged me and so now I have to offer up seven weird things about myself. Six are true; one is false.

I don't know if these are weird or prosaic - I'm not so good at making the distinction. But here you go:
  1. I have perfect pitch and I love to sing. I usually have a karaoke party for my birthday. Once I got an entire room to sing I Will Survive (the Gloria Gaynor version) with me.

  2. I once did the Everest trek in Nepal. We trekked for a month. For one of the weeks it was so cold that I didn't take off any of my clothes, even to sleep. I didn't even change my socks. For a whole week.

  3. I'm actually an introvert, and I can be really shy. I just pretend I'm not most of the time. I love people and I love to socialize, but if I don't get enough alone time I get cranky.

  4. I'm excellent in an emergency. If there's a crisis, I keep a totally cool head and kick into high gear. I'm a great person to have around if something goes totally wrong.

  5. I didn't grow up drinking milk, so if I see someone drinking a glass of it, particularly whole milk, I get kind of nauseated.

  6. I spent a semeser of college in Rome, and during that time I lived in a church. It was in a great location and I didn't have to do any church-y stuff, which is fortunate, since I'm not religious.

  7. I used to work for a defense contractor. I designed training programs on topics such as the Chemical Weapons Convention and US export control regulations. I've been to meetings at the Pentagon.
And now I have to tag people. I tag two men: What Am I Producing? and LMNt. I hope you guys don't mind. . .


  1. I think #4's the fib. I'm with you on the milk thing, it's really really gross!

  2. i'm guessing you can't hold a tune.

  3. My guess is...

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp ...Col. Mustard...

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp the Conservatory...

    &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp &nbsp ....with the WD-40.

  4. I haven't been reading your blog long enough to know what's in character and what's not, so I'm just going to guess #5.


Tell me about it.
