Eight Random Facts

Lisa Durff tagged me with the Eight Random Facts meme.

The rules are:
1) Post these rules before you give your facts
2) List 8 random facts about yourself
3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they've been tagged

Not sure if anyone cares but here goes:

  • I make the best baklava in the area using my mother's recipe.
  • I haven't seen a movie in a theater in over a year.
  • I read "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged" when I was a teenager. (Loved to read then, still do now.)
  • I recommend "Colleges that Change Lives: Forty Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About College" by Loren Pope to every one looking at colleges with their kids.
  • I knew everything there was to know about the '67 Red Sox.
  • One of my five jobs during college was as a switchboard operator. Stayed with this job during all four years as it was the highest paying job at the time for college students on campus.
  • I've never read any Harry Potter books.
  • My musical genre of choice is Techno. (I listen to iTunes radio whenever possible - check it out if you haven't.)

Sorry, I just can't follow through with those last two rules.

If you are reading this and feel the need to share 8 Random Facts about yourself, consider yourself "tagged." I do not like memes and will not intentionally pass this along to anyone since I consider myself to be a "Meme Scrooge."

Don't feel badly about being a Meme Scrooge. I'm with you. It walks and talks like Chain letters to me. I'm an old curmudgeon about them.
