who always gets tagged. Actually a fairly accurate description of my childhood, running was not my thing. Technically I wasn't really allowed to run as I was born with turned in feet and had to have shoes to correct that for the first 8 years of my life. So sports for me as a kid didn't so much involve tag as they did gymnastics and other activities that would help my form and posture.
Anywho, brings me to me being tagged again in the blogosphere, this time by my friend Bobby of Revellian. Bobby writes an excellent blog that touches on just about every subject imaginable and he is a wonderful writer of poetry and short stories as well as thought-provoking posts on friendship, love, job satisfaction, etc. I've been tagged to tell you 8 random facts about myself.
1.) I used to play beer pong with Boone's Farm apple wine. It was better than the swill that passed as beer in college, if that's saying anything.
2.) I played the violin for 18 years and once won a fiddling competition.
3.) I'm allergic to cats and think they are evil because I'm convinced they know I'm allergic and purposefully come to jump on me and no one else when I am at a house that has them.
4.) My mother just sent me a picture I drew when I was 7 about what my future would be. It said "When I grow up I will be a lawyer, married and have a fish tank." Apparently I was a boring child and possessed the ability to see the future. I'm now married, a lawyer, and I have a 10 gallon fish tank with a bunch of fish in it.
5.) I'm a touch obsessed with old Nintendo systems. I still have my NES from when I was a little kid and still play it.
6.) I hate bananas.
7.) My very first job with a paycheck was scooping ice-cream. I didn't eat ice-cream for a year after working there.
8.) I collect teapots.
So, random enough for you? Apparently I now get to tag 8 other bloggers to tell us 8 random things about themselves.
