I was tagged by Chuck at D Is For Dad to do the 7 Random Things Meme.
The rules of the game are:
- Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
- Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
- Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
- Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
However, since this is my blog and just about the only place where I get to make the rules I am going to do away with rules 3 and 4. 🙂
Random Thing #1:
When I left home to go to college I took one small bag with a few pairs of clothes, a nightstand, a pillow, and a blanket. Now I own enough stuff to fill up a semi…most of which sits in a closet, cabinet, or drawer. Garage sale anyone?
Random Thing #2:
We own four vehicles…but only two of them run. 🙂 I drive the Dodge Ram, Momma drives an Explorer, the Blazer is the project vehicle, and we own a Mazda Navajo. We sold the Navajo to a friend with an agreement to take monthly payments for a year. It was returned to us with locked up brakes and a busted transmission…six months and only one payment later. I get pissed every time I look at it, so it sits in a friends garage for now.
Random Thing #3:
I played guitar in a band in High School. We were called “The Space Monkeys”. Go ahead…laugh it up. 😀 We weren’t old enough to get into bars so we played at the local teen centers and even played at a homecoming dance…the only dance I attended in High School. Partying was way more important than girls, but I knew that eventually partying would lead to girls…and it did, but not the types you take home to see Mom. 😀
Random Thing #4:
I just got pulled over for speeding three weeks ago…first ticket ever! I was doing 76 MPH in a 65 MPH zone and it cost me $130 USD. The cop didn’t even use a radar…he used VASCAR. A method of timing me for a specific distance and calculating the speed. Momma asked why I didn’t argue that he calculated the speed wrong. I didn’t argue because his calculation was in my advantage…I was going 80 MPH. 🙂
Random Thing #5:
I used to be an avid skier. I grew up about 10 miles from a small ski resort in Ohio called Mad River Mountain and would ski every Friday and Saturday night throughout the winter. I moved to Colorado where the skiing is awesome…and I went twice in four years.
Random Thing #6:
I grew up out in the country where it was OK to pee outside. Now that I live in the city I still pee outside from time to time, but only when it’s dark and I can find an inconspicuous spot to stand where the neighbors won’t see and become totally jealous. 🙂
Random Thing #7:
It was very hard to write this post. I am not a random person. I like things planned out and usually have Plan B and Plan C in mind. It keeps things from getting out of control, but can be very boring to others…probably almost as boring as this post was to you. 😀
Ta Da! Seven random things about me!
