Okay, I've been tagged to play "8 Random Things" by three friends in the last few days: My delightful Aussie friend Jane (aka Rel), the 251 year-old Heather (hey, that's what her blogger profile says!) and the sweet ex-Minnesotan, Sooz.
So I'm relenting and posting the 8 random things
First, these are the rules:
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.
My eight random facts:
I once rappelled down the outside of a five-story building.
I love listening to director’s commentaries on DVDs more than watching the actual movie.
I fell in love with my husband Ted when he threw seaweed at me during a class picnic when I was fourteen.
In sixth grade my career goal was to be a secret agent.
My favorite childhood television shows were Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission Impossible, and Mod Squad.
I once performed a tap-danced interpretation of the Carl Sandburg poem, “Lines Written for Gene Kelly to Dance To.”
While Ted and I were in grad school, our car was shot (we weren’t in it at the time).
During the rehearsal for an outdoor production of West Side Story that I was choreographing, the police barreled into the parking lot responding to a call from neighbors that gangs were fighting. I told the dancers to drop their chains and knives and start singing.
Now, whom to tag?
Chawna, Cheryl, April, Jill, Alison,Heather,Deena, and Julie. Come on everyone! Share those random facts. :-)
