My friend Karin from You Heard Me has tagged me for a meme…it’s a fun one.
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Make sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.
I had to sleep on this one – my brain is a bit fuzzed from being sick for two weeks; and I admit I’m not feeling terribly creative. Here are my six things:
I. In 1977 I was the NH State half mile champion and in 1978 I was a member of the mile relay team that won the New England Championships. This is a fact I share rarely with others…and I can’t even imagine running that fast today as I creep through middle age.
NE Champions 1978: Tina Guerin, Wendy Ward, Maureen Ferns, Megan O’Sullivan
II. I stay in my pajamas most days until 11:00. Now, don’t assume this equates to laziness. I work as a physical therapy consultant and much of that requires typing reports and making phone calls which I do in the mornings. I usually get up, pour myself a cup of coffee and work on the computer for the first few hours of each day. Why bother getting dressed?
III. I stole my pet rat, Grete, from the college lab at the end of the semester. I was taking a behavioral psychology class at the University of Rhode Island whereby we were given baby rats and the task of teaching these tiny rodents how to press a lever to get water. I grew attached to my rat and when I discovered that all the rats would be gassed at the end of the semester, I decided to save Grete’s life. A friend helped me break into the lab and steal her one night. I think the professor was well aware of the theft, but conveniently looked the other way.
IV. I like to paint my toenails red. How trivial is that?
V. I joined a Sorority in college. Most people do not know this and would not picture me being a Sorority girl. Truth be told, I hated dorm living and joined the Sorority for the great living quarters, and some of the best food on campus.
VI. I have three novels in rough draft I’ve written. Maybe someday I’ll finish them.
I’m supposed to tag three people – but I’m feeling quite lazy. Consider yourself tagged if you are reading this!
