Six Random Things Meme

December 19, 2008

I was tagged by Christopher at Picus Blog with a Six Random Things meme. When I started my blog it was going around as eight random things, but I never got tagged. I suppose I’m lucky I have to come up with two fewer things. I haven’t done any incarnation of it yet, so here it is.

My second meme in a week, weird. This one isn’t about birds though, just a little more personal info on your humble blogger.

  1. I was in a couple really terrible acoustic bands in college, the best of which, a two man operation called Rock-tober, lasted all of two months playing frat parties and open mikes in the fall of 2001. Better to burn out than fade away, right?
  2. I met my wife in Sweden while we were both studying there. She was a grad student and I was taking advantage of my last semester in college to study abroad. Jag kan fortfarande pratar svenska ganska bra också.
  3. My first job when I moved to North Carolina was in a local factory that makes Slim Jims, the famous “beef”stick, and Pemmican Beef Jerky. I worked in the quality control lab and got to wear a lab coat. I won’t eat the stuff now.
  4. In addition to the guitar I can also play a pretty passable bluegrass mandolin and sing the high tenor part.
  5. I’m capable of having an entire conversation in quotes and references to The Simpsons, but only “golden age” episodes, prior to Season 9 when it started going downhill. I have very strong feelings about the precipitous decrease in quality.
  6. I make a mean spaghetti sauce from scratch. No, you can’t have the recipe, it’s a secret. I’m kidding, the secret ingredient is time… and a few spices.

I’m not going to tag anybody, but do it if you like. Let me know if you do, though…

    You’re lucky. I’ve now posted 21 random things about myself in 3 different memes over the years.

    Simpsons quotes… nice!
