  • Non Sequitur: Seven Random/Weird Things. About Me.

    ·

    I have been tagged by Jason Penney, and that makes me “it”, I suppose. To comply, I must do the following:

    1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
    2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
    3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
    4. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

    I’m going to ignore rule number four, just because I don’t like leaving comments that aren’t related to posts.

    Seven things, eh? Random and/or weird. Oh, I can handle that.

    1. FACT: I can cross my eyes independent of one another.

    2. FACT: The first compact disc I ever purchase was from a group named Holiday Ranch. I split the cost of the CD with my friend, Eric, because I didn’t own a CD player at the time. I have no idea where that disc is today.
    3. FACT: I created my first web page in the early 1990s while working as a “lab consultant” at the Center for Computer-Assisted Language Instruction at Michigan Technological University. The only content I can specifically recall was a scan of an Arlo and Janis comic strip. Yes, my first web page prominently featured copyright infringement.
    4. FACT: I am a founding member of the Benevolent Order of Scrimshankers.
    5. FACT: I do not like cold Swiss cheese.
    6. FACT: I once dreamed that I was being pursued by Darth Vader, who was driving a white van and intended to cut my legs off when he caught me; it has been at least twenty years since I had that dream, but I still remember it quite clearly.
    7. FACT: I have never seen any movies in the Godfather or Rocky series. I actively avoid the latter. There is no rational reason for this; I just do.

    Now, to the tagging of others.

    1. Chris Miller. This one is a total cop out, as Jason already tagged him.
    2. Nycteris.
    3. The Bearded Goose.
    4. Greg Howley.
    5. Sam Chupp.
    6. Technohippybiker.
    7. The Cynical Optimist.
