Meme a whippa, meme a whippa (catching up)

I don't do these, ordinarily, extraordinarily, or otherwise, since by the time they get to me, anyone I'd tag is tagged, but since Amy asked, I have to (though I'll cheat by posting this to my myspace friends instead of tagging 8 people specifically.)

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

1. I can make my knuckle dance.

2. I enjoy low degrees of separation from many sports and entertainment figures because I've played pickup basketball with Les Connor (Oregon star, respected journeyman pro--long ago, in Berkeley), Joe Rose (Cal and Dolphins tight end), Tim McDonald (49ers d-back in Fresno--his elbow ruined my fine falsetto), and Rob Lowe.

3. Cleaning my office is considered "optional."

4. I used to watch scary movies as a child from behind the sea foam green Naugahyde footstool.

5. The most beautiful places I've been are in Nepal, Ireland, Utah, and Santa Barbara.

6. I used to be jealous of Kathy Helm at Woodrow Wilson Elementary because she could color in the lines and I could only dress up in women's clothing.

7. One day I will have to surrender my dream of making my 57 Benz run again.

8. I drink red wine with fish.

So, myspace friends and John G., go.

Wait, Marty, I'm not sure what's going on here. What's being tagged mean? What's with the 8 facts? This is all going too fast.

Marty said...

It mean, John, it's your turn to post the rules and the 8 facts about you on your blog, and make invitations accordingly. I know you have it in you.

Amy said...

thanks Marty! you're a real sport!

Did you hear? We're having a memorial softball game this Sunday. We'll miss you!

Marty said...

I did hear, Amy. I'll pound my old mitt a couple times in honor, and say Hum batter three times. I hope you'll be in right again with the greyhounds. Have fun!

Marty, is there a statute of limitations on this posting 8 thing? Time limits?
