*giggle* I’ve never been tagged before…..

Seven Random and/or Weird Things about me….

  1. I do renaissance sword-fighting as a hobby.  That’s how I met my husband.  He’s much better at it than I will ever  be.
  2. I never get lost – ever.  My sense of direction and memory for how to get places, even places I’ve only been once a decade ago, is uncanny.
  3. I did my first triathlon at 210lbs.  I came in 3rd from last, but I finished it.  I’ve done several since then, all between 205 and 215lbs.  (I’m in great shape for a fat chick.)
  4. I have never broken a bone.  Not one.  Although I did get my nose knocked a little off kilter playing dodge ball in junior high school.
  5. I was a TOTAL hair-band freak when I was in my 20s (and it was the 80s); I had local bands I followed around like some groupie.  In retrospect, they weren’t actually that good.
  6. I buy an awful lot of books that I never seem to get around to reading.  School/Research books.  Sometimes it makes me feel better just to know they are there.
  7. I dropped out of college after a year and a half.  I didn’t finish my Bachelors until I was 35.  Yet here I am with 1 Masters, a couple months away from a second one (and ABD status – they’re both on track to be done by the end of the Spring semester) and getting a PhD, just 6 years later.  No one could have predicted THAT.

(hopefully these folks won’t get too cranky with me – some I haven’t even commented on yet but have been reading for a while….)

The Meme Rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

New rule—try not starting the post with the rules. That’s always the
point at which I stop reading memes and skip to a new post or a new
blog. Who wants to read the rules first? And honestly, does this meme
need so many rules? Shouldn’t linking to the people you tag be
understood? This is a blog, after all.

Comments to notify the tagged coming soon.
