Abram -- Tagged

I've been tagged. Not my favorite game, but since I some times appreciate reading others' tag-responses, I figured I'd better play along ... Even if it officially means that Melanie (see the Gunnels blog to the side) is now better friends with Kristin than me.

Here are the rules:

  • Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, as we all want to know them.
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  • Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Below are my 7:

  1. I have a tattoo that has led at least one observer to question whether I've tattooed Laman or Lemuel on my back -- picture of what the tattoo is supposed to look like attached.
  2. I only believe in hustle sports -- finesse sports like golf, horse-shoes, etc., only bring out the worst in me.
  3. I wore all black the day George H.W. Bush lost to Bill Clinton -- yeah, I was in mourning. I can't explain it except to say I was a deluded youth.
  4. I am confident that upon request I could individually reenact, with a separate voice for all appropriate characters, 25 episodes of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, 20 episodes of Little Einsteins, and 5 episodes of Dora the Explorer.
  5. Other than time spent with family, my favorite time of each day is the car ride home from work.
  6. More than any other material possession, I desperately want to own a boat. And I hate the water, the outdoors, and everything that goes along with both of those things. In addition to loving the idyllic image of me sipping a diet root-beer with a skipper hat on ... I'm wedded to the idea of spending Saturdays in the summer with the Ellis family water-skiing/wake-boarding their away across the Commonwealth.
  7. I have a really hard time admitting I'm wrong. But I will admit that Kristin is almost always right -- except for the times that I keep track of on this little list in my mind. Sorry, can't help it; my mind just naturally keeps lists like that (like the number of times I've been wronged by people in Settlers). Don't judge me.

Who are the lucky 7? And I hear ya on the boat. I feel exactly the same way. Scary, but fun.

KA said...

Doesn't Settlers violate your hustle-sport-exclusivity theory?

Brooke said...

Hey Kristen! I came across your blog through the Hales. Love all the pics you've posted - very cute!!

Rebecca said...

LOL! THAT is a great list! I must admit, I am usually very anti the tag game, but this post may have me converted:)

For now on, "The Skipper."

Let's also not underplay the horse shoe skills.

Lisa said...

Oh I know I'm on that Settler list! You are one funny boy Abram!

Melanie said...

Thanks for humoring me, Abram, albeit with your disclaimer about not liking the tagged games. You like them, you know you do. And I rather enjoyed the list, I must say. I thought I knew you but it has obviously been too long since we've been friends. I guess I'll stick with Kristin. Thanks for playing, really.

Is horseshoes really a "sport"?

Thanks Abram. I needed a good belly laugh. Is the tattoo supposed to be Greek?
