I got Tagged!

Helen over at Classics, Etc. tagged me with a meme--my first ever real tag! I've done memes before; just not on request. By the way, Helen is about to start her PhD program in Classics at the University of Nottingham. Good luck with that!

Didn't have a clue that your favorite ice cream is black raspberry. Amazing the things you can learn on the internet. Your maternal grandmother was called "Becky" as a child (supposedly she looked like "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm", so in MY heart, at least, you are named for your Grandma. Mammamoo

Hmmm I'm so literal -- I didn't think of answering "both"

Not only do I have the Ace of Bass CD, I also copied it into my iTunes library, and it now resides on my iPod...I have no idea why I did, but I did.
