Tagged by Precious Metal - Very Belated!!!!

Sooo - way back in December I got tagged to do a meme by Precious Metal. Sounds like fun, I was just up to my eyeballs. Still am, but I'm moving the stuff around me a bit - making breathing room. Anyway, even though it's quite late - thought I'd participate....

The rules --

• Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
• Share 7 random or weird things about yourself.
• Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
• Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
I think I'm going to not tag other folks, as late as this is, and as many people as I've found who've already done this. However, here are my responses:

7 Random or Weird Things about Me
  1. Spent a while working at a zoo when I was a lot younger - did many different jobs, many of them grunt jobs, so I can identify more kinds of poo than probably anyone you'll ever meet.
  2. I am a Cold War Air Force brat - my Dad did "nuclear stuff" for a long time when I was a kid, and my birth in the Netherlands is directly related to that. You should see how much paperwork I have to take to the DMV to prove I'm an American citizen. ;P
  3. I haven't been able to do it in years for lack of opportunity, but I was pretty good at Irish dancing. Used to go with a friend every Tuesday to dance at O'Flaherty's Irish Channel Pub in New Orleans (sadly closed down in 2005). I had a lot of friends and acquaintances that were tarot readers or street performers in the Quarter, and I once danced with a drunk clown in full Scottish formal dress (think kilt). His clown shoes kept crushing my feet. o.0
  4. I spent more than half a decade living in England - I had a dear elderly friend who used to take me to see the vicar at St. Mary's church when we lived in Grundisburgh (roughly pronounced Grun-dis-bor-o). This late medieval church is the first one I ever attended services at and tends to be the one I use as a bench mark. ^_^
  5. My oldest domain name is going on 13 years old.
  6. I was stalked in an amusement park when I was 13.
  7. I've taken to wearing wedding bands on both my ring fingers - a habit I picked up when I was living/studying in Austria for a little while, where folks wear their wedding rings on their right hands. Anyway, they're both simple thin gold bands and I feel more symmetrical this way....
Hmm - hope that works! Anyone who reads this and wants to participate - consider yourself tagged.

Thanks for the comment, Gregor, I was feeling a bit exposed and goofy! ^_^

Glad to see you back at "it," as well - hopefully I'm at it for good this time too!!

Nah, don't feel goofy.

It was cool, showed your unique personality.
