So Jenn hit me up with this meme:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
7 Wierd & Random facts:
#1) I have virtually no sense of smell or sense of direction. (The former is a result of years of alLergies. The latter is one of the ways being learning disabled impacts me.)
#2) I’m a total science-fiction/comic book geek. I managed a comic book store through chunks of high school and college. To this day I often decompress from life by hanging out in book stores and reading comics for a couple hours.
#3) I have this wierd little ball of flesh inside my right ear lobe. It’s about the size of a pea.
#4) I have completed a novel. It’s probably the most unsellable piece of writing ever created. It’s ambitious, over wrought, confusing, envelope-pushing, poorly punctuated and well intentioned. The title of the book is “A House Divided” It’s an allegorical retelling of my coming to Christ. It’s also a story about a demon who eats kids that are locked into the juvenile justice system. It’s also my attempt to supply Emergent Christianity with an epic, narrative representation of its theology in the same way that folks like Frank Perreti represent my more traditional brothers and sisters in Christ. It’s also walks your dog.
(Just kidding about the last part.)
#5) I once took belly dancing classes. It wasn’t a pretty picture. All I can offer in my defense is that I was engaged in imbiding a lot of things I should not have been that interfered with my decision making abilities at the time.
#6) Somewhere deep inside, I’m still a teen ager.
#7) When my eldest was born I wanted to name him Daggan. When my youngest was born I wanted to name him Phinneus. Most people are glad that I was outvoted on both counts.
A few people I’ll tag:
Yes, I know that’s actually not 7 people.
There’s a few people I thought about tagging.
One often goes by an initial. If that person reads this and wants to consider themselves duly tagged I hope that person will feel free.
Similarly, a few of my other blogging contacts I’d consider more cerebral than social bloggers. There’s a bunch of people I’d actually be interested to hear 7 random facts from. (Micah Tillman, Enigman, Andrew Stevens being among them.) But I’m not sure if they “do” the whole social side of this wierd little obsession (blogging) so I’ll let them respond if they see fit.
