ATTACK! Or, rather, A TAG!


It seems I've been tagged. Twice, actually. Which at least affirms that several people know I exist.

Apparently I am to disclose six weird things about myself, and then to tag six other bloggers so that they must do the same. In this manner, the weirdness of bloggers throughout the design universe will be revealed.


Ok, here goes:

1. I'm a later bloomer. I got chicken pox in my early twenties. In my late twenties I took drum lessons. (As drummers go, I'm a pretty good psychologist.) I married for the first time at age forty-three. And yes, it was worth the wait.

2. My brain is weird. Though verbally bright, I have the worst sense of direction of anyone I've ever known. I can easily get lost within a few blocks of home. I can't do math in my head or balance my checkbook, but got an A in graduate-level statistics. My brain is weird.

3. The thought of John Lennon's death still makes me cry.

4. At my wedding, I walked down the aisle to "You're My Best Friend" by Queen.

5. I used to have a compulsive need to bring home every strange, unique or quirky item that I found at a thrift store. I have gotten past this only by convincing myself to photograph them instead.

6. I am currently in the midst of a highly non-trivial conversation with myself about the spiritual ramifications of blogging about things.

Well, that does it for me. Now I have to go out and recruit six other bloggers into the fray. I'll add them at the end of this post when I've done so.



OK, here's who I've tagged, may they curse me not:

Book of Joe
Design Milk
JuJu Loves Polka Dots
As Eye See It
Oo's Very Eclectic
Not Quite Perfect

(What's with the sudden *asterisk* fetish, do you suppose?)

You actually sound sort of fabulously interesting to me. And I love that you got married at 43.
PS I see that you have linked me. Thanks so much. I will link you, too.

wow, thanks! for the compliment, for the link, and for stopping by my blog :)

Thanks for the tag :) Only two weird things about me

1. I moderate my blog
2. I don't "do" tags

But hey, I still like you :)

Oh, I felt those sighs of yours, having also been tagged by Sprayglue. Why was it so difficult? I think being confronted with a spectacular lack of quirkiness was a little alarming. I'll have to develop a tic or something...

Sorry if I'm bugging you about this, but I emailed you at the address you left in my comments box, but am uncertain whether or not you received it. Please let me know.

not to worry, your tag won't end up in my dislike file. But be warned I have probably given an overly sensitive and serious answer to it. It will be posted tomorrow.

I think it's great you got married at 43. Why is that weird? What's strange to me is getting married at 18 in this day and age! Ditto on the thrift store thing. I am working so hard not to bring home every nifty item that has no place. Thank goodness for cameras.

LisaJay said...

Thanks, pink! I figured you could relate to the thrift-store thing. You, with your lovely busts. (People lacking the context now think I'm flirting with you. And speak English rather poorly.)
