7 Fun and Weird Things About Me

7 Fun and Weird Things About Me

A blog meme is a game where bloggers tap each other to blog about a theme while also getting other friends to do the same. Author of How to Self-Destruct: Making the Least of What's Left of Your Career Jason Seiden tagged me for the current meme.

Chocolate Bar Pieces

Here are the meme rules:

  • Link to your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself in the post – some random, some weird.
  • Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

7 things about me you don't know

  1. While other kids would count sheep to fall asleep, I used to multiply twos in my head. It's boring… and it works.
  2. I'm not superstitious at all.
  3. It took 18 years before I could whistle, and even then it was only by sucking air inwards. My barely 4-year old daughter can whistle now.
  4. I only found out a few weeks ago that I'm NOT allergic to chocolate.
  5. I've had Palm PDAs continuously since 1997 and my memory has been much the worser.
  6. When I catch a cold, I almost always lose my senses of taste and smell.
  7. In high school, an exam of mine was once marked down to 99% because even though I had all the right answers, my teacher didn't believe in perfection.

7 bloggers I'd like to hear more about
