Tagged

We interrupt our scheduled program to bring you this commercial message:
I've been tagged.

Lauren, has passed along the "blessing" with the disclaimer that I do not have to participate if I don't want, but I am anal about finishing these kinds of requests, so off I go. The assignment: five random facts about myself.

Now the challenge is, I don't have five interesting facts about myself. I wondered myself to sleep last night trying to think of what they might be. Really. Sure, I can talk my fool head off to anybody, including the strange guy in the line at the market, but as far as offering tidbits that others would find interesting.....duh....I dunno?

Hmmm...OK...here goes.

1. My dream job would be to run my little farm and somehow make enough money to exist pretty much as we do. I suppose that would mean organic vegetable prices would have to go up, and there would have to be a keen market for registered Shetlands and Pygoras, and the like, but hey, that's why it's call a "dream" job...

2. My favorite book(s) that I wish were real and I would like to be in: Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. If not for all the adventure and good sex, at least for the reunion in the print shop. Love that moment.

3. Of all the famous people in the world (none of whom I have met, BTW) I would like to meet the Dalai Lama. Just want to ask him tons of questions...

4. I collect (although not as passionately as in my youth) glass insulators. You know, the typically blue/green thingys on top of telephone poles (usually ceramic these days) I have close to 75 different ones, and have most of them displayed in our dining room.

5. I give up. You guys will have to ask me what you want to know for the last one...

Oh yeah, and since I don't know five other people with blogs that haven't already been tagged (most of my friends and associates don't even know what a blog is, or what to do with it...) this one will have to end here. Sorry cyber-world.

I LOVE the Outlander series and read Outlander and Voyager at least once a year! I got the first one on audio so I could knit and listen to it. Jamie Fraser...hmmmm.

Lauren tagged me, too, and it was just as difficult for me to come up with five random facts (Interesting? Who said they had to be interesting??) about myself. Almost got stuck on #5 as well. I was going to tag you before I noticed that Lauren already had. None of those I tagged have responded, so I guess my post was a dead-end, too. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Ok this is weird.
I was just tagged too, to talk about 7 random things about myself. Go check my blog if you don't believe me.
I said I'll play but I will not go tag anyone else...
And: there's a movie coming out called 10 questions for the Dalai Lama. I think you and me need to go to the movies! check www.spectrum8.com

Oh, I just assumed these facts were supposed to be interesting...otherwise - why?

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day...we did lots of yard work, but it was very satisfying.

Outlander on tape...what a great idea! Off to shop at Barnes & Noble...
