Tag - I'm It!

Ok, I’ve been tagged by Bawana. So, according to the rules of the game, I’ve got to tell you eight things about myself that you might not know – that will be fun! At least one or two may be doozies.

And I’ve got to tag eight more people. That may be harder. I don’t know everybody who’s been tagged already but I’ll give it a shot. If you've already been tagged, sorry and just ignore.

First the eight things.
  1. I collect teddy bears and have over a hundred of them spilling into every room in my house including my downstairs bathroom.

  2. I also collect Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad lore with their Chessie logo, which is the sleeping kitten.

  3. Back in the late 1970s, I gave up a job on a suburban newspaper to live in New York City and write about the Greenwich Village/Lower East Side music scene for alternative newspapers.

  4. While doing that I interviewed, and became friendly with, Kinky Friedman, who recently ran for governor of Texas; and Chinga Chavin, who recorded the Country Porn album (my articles were PG-Rated). I don't have a link to those articles but I still have my clippings.

  5. Although I came from a very musical family, I can't carry a tune and have a terrible singing voice.

  6. I used to act in straight dramas and comedies (anything non-musical) in high school and college and I wrote poetry that I performed as a one-woman show.

  7. I am terrified to fly but I do it anyway.

  8. I was once a Young Republican for one day. A friend of mine needed a vote in a convention and she paid for my membership. We won!

    Now my tags – you’re it:

Lowell

Catzmaw

Kestrel 9000

Terry Rhea

Brimur

Jambone

Eileen

Squeaky Wheel

Yeah, the last one is actually in Ohio now. And somebody else may have tagged him. But it's the least I can do to annoy him :)
