Tag - I'm it! Eight Random Facts Meme


I got tagged by Gallycat! How did that happen? I didn't even feel a ripple in the force! Well, here goes...


First, the rules. Then, the meme.


1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight 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.


1. I can write in cursive in mirror image. I learned how to do this when I learned that my 8th grade English teacher wrote her test keys that way so she could keep the answer key out and students couldn't read it!


2. I have major hitch-hiker's thumb on my right hand - so much so that I can bend it back to a 90-degree angle without using any help (like pressure from other fingers).


3. It wasn't until 6th grade that I met another kid with the name Jennifer - eventually the most popular girl's name in the country.


4. I don't drink coffee - at all - I think it smells bad, too. Yuck!


5. We picked out our daughter's name, Augusta (old family name that hadn't been used in four generations), before we got married in 1988. She was born in August eleven years later!


6. When I was in high school I was in the color guard - twirled flag and rifle. We were pretty bitchin' - won first place in the Marching Band Grand Nationals Competition (1981 Tate High School)


7. I used to sky dive when I was in college - was even the secretary of the sport parachute club.


8. I know how to tell a he-crab from a she-crab and also know how to make a crab relax so much it will curl in its little claws and go to sleep.



OK - your turn friends: Lia, Amy, Caroline, Brian...got to think of four more!

This HAS to be one of the most surprising versions of this meme yet. Among others things, I am now wondering how to make a crab go to sleep. :-)
