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!
