Six Random Things
I’m still a little new to the whole online “meme,” thing, but I’ve been tagged by Ken so why not have a little fun on a Friday night. Here’s the rules:
- Link to the person who tagged you.
- Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).
- Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).
- Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
- Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
- Let the tagger know when your entry is up.
And so I present six bits of personal miscellany that I think the wonderful world-wide web is incomplete without:
- I’m an identical twin. For those interested in discovering just how alike (or not) twins might think, you can find out for yourself here.
- I’m quite likely the world’s most unhandy former farm-kid. You’d think growing up on a farm would make me a natural at things like fixing things up around the house, landscaping, minor mechanical repairs, etc., but for the most part I’m doing pretty well if I can figure out which end of the hammer is supposed to hit the nail.
- Despite #2 above, I have my welding ticket, and spent parts of several years fixing livestock pens behind the mask.
- I have a class one and six drivers license. For non-Canadian readers, that means I can (miraculously, considering #2 above) legally operate everything from a motorcycle to a tractor-trailer unit.
- Despite attending university in southern Alberta (not exactly known for its mild winters), I drove my motorcycle to school (25 minutes of mostly highway driving one-way) at least one day in every month of one year. There were a few days where I couldn’t open my hands until the second class of the morning because my hands had frozen in the handlebar position.
- In a former life, I played bass guitar in a worship band that actually recorded a CD. Despite the fact that it was a fairly low-budget affair, that the bass-work was mediocre at best, and that I could probably mount a scathing theological critique of some of the songs we sang as well as the phenomenon of “worship bands” in general, I’m still just a little bit proud of it.
So there you have it. I tag: Gil, Dave, Dale, Paul, Jeff, and Eric (in order to avoid unnecessary pressure, I have, like Ken, skipped #5 above – I realize sharing trivial facts about one’s life might not be for everyone).
