Tag – you are eight

Eight random things about me. Why, you ask?
Quoting Beatriz, “because they tagged me.”
Here are the instructions:

  1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their 8 things and post these rules.
  3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

and here are the eight things that you need:

  1. i can easily walk five miles without noticing
  2. i got my first book about computers when I was 6 years old
  3. i have always wanted to be an astronaut. I still have hopes
  4. i have grown skeptical of politics – after Galán’s assassination
  5. i have studied math
  6. i used to hike
  7. i have eaten guinea pigs
  8. i am interested in environmental economics

and now I tag these eight people: Liz, Dawn, Elaine, Dan, Greg, Francis, Dervala, and Morgaine.

    I guess I’ll post my eight things here…..

    1. I didn’t learn to drive until I was 23.

    2. I’m the oldest of three.

    3. I was a C student in school.

    4. I went snowboarding once and enjoyed it.

    5. I’m blind in one eye.

    6. I was in drama club and band in H.S.

    7. I disliked most of High School.

    8. I’m 1/4 Jewish, but went to Catholic school for eight years.

  2. Dan says:

    Who is Galan? Inquiring minds would like to know.

  3. francis s. says:

    Me too, since I’m already behind one meme and I’m so lazy about posting these days.

    1. I have a B.A. in film from New York University. Not that I’ve ever worked in film.

    2. I had a beautiful soprano until my voice changed at the embarrassingly late age of 15. I was so thankful.

    3. I got a D in the last math course I took, Algebra 2, in my sophomore year of high school.

    4. I was in Panama for Carnival in 1993 or 1994 on business. We were the only Americans. It was kind of scary, with waves of police passing through the nearly silent crowds.

    5. My old passport had space for only 2 more stamps on it when I got a new one.

    6. I have dual Swedish and American citizenship.

    7. I once had an office overlooking the spot where Ronald Reagan was shot, although it was long after.

    8. Although I am rather fond of peanut butter (which I never eat here), I hate and have always hated peanut butter and jelly (or peanut butter with anything else, for that matter).

  4. Camilo says:

    On Galán: check the new post.

    Francis: you know Andreas Olsson?

  5. francis s. says:

    Andreas Olsson? Uh, I don’t think so. Should I know him?
