And the meme goes on ...


I've been tagged with the 8 facts meme. I don't know whether to thank Cathe or not. It's sort of like a chain letter, isn't it? But I remember falling forparticipating in the Friendship Bread one, years ago; for a while, every house in the area had a batch going. And it was fun.

So here goes.

The rules are as follows:
  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don't forget to leave them each a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.
So, my 8 facts, randomly chosen, are:
  1. I have a pen holder on my desk made of an animal horn of some kind, covered with inscribed aluminum. I have no idea why anybody would do this.
  2. I was kicked by a deer when I was a pre-schooler.
  3. Sometimes I temporarily manage to break my habit of biting my nails.
  4. I have a vintage log-cabin design quilt, quite tattered, on my bed. I don't think it is particularly valuable, but I like it.
  5. I have lived in three countries and in villages of less than a dozen people as well as in a city of over 10 million at the time. (Mexico, DF.) I loved both extremes.
  6. I dream of hang-gliding, but I never will actually do it.
  7. I am a night-owl and have always been, from baby-hood.
  8. I re-read my favourite books, sometimes many times.
And that's the eight. Next step: tag eight more people. (Will this earn me eight enemies? I hope not.)

Here are 8 from my blogroll:
  1. Celeste, from Dzonoqua's Whistle.
  2. Hugh, from Lulu Island Blog.
  3. Oaksong's Nemeton. Because he is a "once and future goatherd."
  4. Carolyn from Roundtop Ruminations.
  5. Bug Girl, from Bug Girl's Blog.
  6. Cicero Sings, up in Williams Lake. I just discovered this one today.
  7. A Mark on My Wall.
  8. Jeenybeen on Ginkgo Leaves. Because I love his (her?) photography.
And that's it. Whew!

Back to my normal blogging. But not tonight.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog but oh dear, I don't even KNOW 8 bloggers. I started blogging in March, basically for friends and family only to find, much to my surprise, that other people read the blog more then friends or family do!! I'll think about this MEME thing.

    Last year my fascination was birds, this year it is wild plants and even more recent, insects. SO many interesting plants and critters out there ... so many small, interesting things that usually pass us by but which are so intricate and beautiful ... gorgeous even.

    I'm being called to breakfast so ta ta.

  6. Wyldthang,

    Of course you'll do it "right"!

    I really don't know which village I liked better. I still miss both of them about equally, depending on the cues of the moment.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
