Do Re Meme

I was tagged for a meme, which almost never happens, so here’s some Random Stuff about Me.

Da rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

Here are six random things about me.

1. I played the accordion for several years, but I recovered.

2. A homeless lady once tried to pick me up in a pizza joint on Hollywood Boulevard. (She didn’t succeed.) My friend and I didn’t realize that she was probably homeless until she left the place with a big trash bag of stuff.

3. Most poetry leaves me cold, but I’ve had “Jabberwocky” memorized since I was eight years old.

4. I play the recorder when the mood takes me.

5. I’ve been to Orlando maybe ten times in the last few years, but I’ve never been to Disneyworld (or any of the other theme parks, for that matter).

6. The first computer I ever used stored programs by punching holes in paper tape. (I was in high school, and my dad built it from a kit.) My friend and I used to save the punched-out holes in those little plastic 35mm film containers. We’d take them to high school football games and sprinkle them in the hair of the people sitting in front of us.

Now, let’s see. I tag Happy Catholic, Phil and Lars at Brandywine Books, Jaquandor, Ian, and Captain Yips.

Technically I ought to leave a comment on each of these blogs, to say “Tag, you’re it!”, but frankly we’ve got a babysitter tonight and they are here. Time with Jane trumps blogging. Ciao!
