Double Tagged...

...for the 8 Random Facts Meme by PhDinHistory and John at By the Bayou (and I think someone else did also, but I can't remember!). I'm not going to tag anyone because everyone I read has already been tagged...but I'll do the meme! Here are eight random facts about me:

  1. I don't drink caffeinated beverages. I really love coffee but I find my stomach doesn't really love it. I drink a lot of herbal teas.

  2. When I was little I wanted to be a palaeontologist and I was obsessed with dinosaurs. I'm still interested in fossils of all kinds.

  3. When I was in high school I wanted to be an equine veterinarian.

  4. I have an extensive collection of My Little Ponies. I liked them better than Barbies.

  5. My favorite movie *ever* is The Great Race, with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, and Jack Lemmon.

  6. I've had short hair since I was fifteen. I hate having hair--the shorter the better!

  7. I got my ears pierced when I was six, on the same day that I met Geraldine Ferraro (who was running for Vice President).

  8. My favorite book *ever* is Jane Eyre.

Hmmm, I really could use some cash right now to finish up a few things in our new house. Think I will visit that big Rubbermaid container in the garage and scope out the ponies. Mammamoo

In looking at this post, and looking around, I was pleased to see that you are almost to five years of blogging! That's a pretty good record! I was well willing to bet I'd been at it longer. Happy anniversary!

Getting your ears pierced and meeting Geraldine Ferraro at six explains a lot about your politics--no, wait, its actually very confusing. Both are vary painful experiences, you should have become Republican instantly.

I have one question about the past 5: what happened with Squirrel? You promised and ending to the story, I never found it.

And in the next 5: More of your relationship to the community, the land, and the world around. What are you helping build: a park, a church, an arts center? What organizations outside the academy, ones with blue collar members? How are you forming personal experiences to better understand history? Nothing beats working outside with a hammer and nails throughout January to drive in the commitment of those at Valley Forge.
Best wishes! Ed

My landlord eventually replaced the torn screens with some very heavy duty ones the squirrel couldn't chew through. He would hang around outside looking pathetic but I had no sympathy. A whole platoon of mice took his place, though, which eventually forced me to move out.

Mammamoo has it about right! Except for the fact some of these ponies command a pretty good price, now, don't they! They'll help fund Mammamoo's and my retirement!! Let the sorting begin!!

There will be NO SELLING of my Ponies. Otherwise I'll send Pepper after you.

Oh yeah - all we have to do is turn on the ceiling fans - all six of them on high - and we'll see how Pepper reacts to that!!

See how my grandparents treat their only grandcat? I can't help it if I am afraid of giant blades that turn all on their own! In fact, sensible humans would be afraid of them too!
