Eight Random Facts Meme

I stole this from Bill Schmoker:

Here are the rules for Eight Random 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, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

I bet you didn't know this... or maybe you did:

1) I have a black belt in American Isshinryu Karate, trained by the amazing Ernie Temple. I'm on a bit of a hiatus now though.

2) In high school I played the tuba and marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland.

3) During college, I ate 67 buffalo wings in a single sitting at the amazing Pic-a-lilli in Shamong, NJ. The trick is not to drink any soda.

4) A few years ago I had several bonsai trees and attended several classes on how to do bonsai. Unfortunately, the trees died, but I still have quite a bonsai book collection and a brain full of bonsai knowledge. I'll pick it up again soon.

5) Beth and I own a piano, but neither of us play it very well.

6) I love to cook and am semi-obsessed with the Food Network.

7) I once had a mullet and thought I was cool. Now I'm bald. I think that's karma.

8) I have a severe nail biting habit. I've tried to stop many times, but it's tough.

OK, now who shall I tag?

Hi Patrick, I came from Somewhere in NJ. I knew a male nail biter and the cure was his visit to a nail salon and had acrylics applied. No polish - very natural looking. After a few months, he lost the habit.

Mary, I thought about doing this and now that I know someone else has, maybe I'll go through with it. I'll get my g/f to bring me along next time she goes. Thanks!!!

O.K.-I've got the tag-I may actually do this one.-Black Belt-impressive!-I like buffalo wings but that's crazy!

Ok, not only did we both own Snaggletooth, but we also both played the tuba in high school.

Although, I'm not bald...so there. ;-)

Take piano lessons! I'm so jealous - I play, but have no piano or room for one.

Somehow I don't see you as the tuba type.

Thanks for the tag.
