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:

  1. Link to the person who tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).
  3. Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).
  4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
  5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
  6. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Despite #2 above, I have my welding ticket, and spent parts of several years fixing livestock pens behind the mask.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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).

  1. A welder and a guitar player, but not good with your hands… funny!
