Magnificent Seven

No, I’m not going to discuss an old movie (which was based on an older foreign flick). I’m responding to la fille mariee’s meme, in which one posts seven random facts about one’s self. The problem with this is that since I’m typing, the aren’t going to be completely random things. However, I’ll try to jump around a bit to give the verisimilitude of randomnessity.

1) I’m rather shy and reserved in real life, although I sometimes cover it up by doing something that seems totally out of character for me.

2) I’m very handy with tools (power tools, for those of you with minds in the gutter) and I’m secretly pleased when people are amazed at some project that I’ve done myself.

3) An old girlfriend once told me that I acted perfectly comfortable with anything I happened to be wearing, be it a tuxedo, a business suit, or old jeans.

4) I started getting grey hairs when I was in high school. Old classmates have no trouble recognizing me because I haven’t changed very much since then.

5) I almost always have a pen and a handkerchief with me. Yes, I was a Boy Scout.

6) Even though I’m a good cook, and even though I’m good at making healthy meals, and rarely eat junk food, I still enjoy a good hot dog off the grill.

7) I would rather read erotica than watch porn.

And I’m going to tag Russ, Emma, Elizabeth, Morality Loophole, Coquette, Becker, and Steelpants.

    A boy scout. I bet you look very handsome in uniform.

    Thanks for the tag. 🙂 I’m going to post tomorrow. I’ve been playing a bit with some ideas. One wants to be clever, but I think I’d have to invent stuff to be truly clever….how would you know???

    hugs, E

    Hi Tom,

    We’ve been caught in a crossfire. & meme’d by both Gillette and you. It’s been very very very hectic here for the last day but will put up our 7 in the next day or so.

    The movie? Dang, I’m so slow sometimes. What movie?


  8. Emma Kelly says:

    Hi Tom,

    Here’s my meme. I also posted it on my blog of course but I didn’t know if I was supposed to put it here as well?


    1. I am terrified of the ocean though I am an excellent swimmer.

    2. I was a vegetarian for 18 years and suddenly became a starving carnivore after my daughter was born.

    3. I was a virgin until I was almost 21.

    4. I’ve always been suspicious that left-handed people are more creative than right-handed people so I sometimes try to force myself to write with my left-hand. This usually lasts about ten minutes or so.

    5. I never been on a second date with anyone, even scott, whom I virtually moved in with after our first date.

    6. I am extremely sentimental. I wear my grandmother’s and mother’s rings and am saving many of my daughter’s clothes to make a quilt for her.

    7. I can knit.
