No one specifically tagged me, but everyone else is doing it. Lots of people have been too lazy to actually tag anyone, so I’m taking it as an invitation. Academic Cog posted the rules, which helps.

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.

3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 things (in chronological order)

1. When I was a very small child, my father was an organic farmer. His big cash crop? Watermelons. Later, after the divorce my mother told me she hates watermelons. I like to imagine that is why they divorced. (There are tons of pictures of me as a small child in corduroy with straggly hair, standing next to the trailer we lived. I look very 70’s white trash.)

2. After the divorce we stayed for a while at a commune. This is where I tasted pop-tarts for the first time, as my parents were macrobiotic vegetarians.

3. In high school I was a drama geek. Mostly I designed costumes, but I had some small parts, including Jaquenetta in Loves Labors Lost.

4. When I was 16, I traveled to Russia with a group of high school and college students. My last night in there I stayed out all night with a Russian artist I had just met.

5. In college my friend asked me to go with her to an audition and I ended up playing “Old Woman” in Ionesco’s “The Chairs.” That was fun.

6. Beorn and I met online, before people did that. On UseNet. For a long time I was embarrassed about it, now that seems silly.

7. We now live in a 600 sq ft cottage, that used to be part of a motor lodge. (Isn’t it cute?)
