Random Facts and New Domain!

Beth got me my own domain name for Xmas! www.hawkowlsnest.com will now point you to this blog. Please update your links. Also, I was tagged by my buddy Delia for this 7 random facts meme.

The rules:
Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share 7 random or weird things about yourself. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. Beth and I met on Match.com. She "winked" at me and the rest is history.

2. I was a founding member of a mock religion based around SPAM (the meat product, not the email stuff). At one point we had over one hundred "members" and were even mentioned in a published book about the history of SPAM. My friends and I had a lot of free time in high school! :)

3. I am a huge hockey fan. I follow the New York Rangers.

4. I can link myself to Kevin Bacon in 5 links.

5. I spent way too much time in college playing Magic: The Gathering.

6. My father is a very active Vietnam Vet. He has 3 Purple Hearts and has been featured in books, magazines, and TV shows. He also does a slide show program at schools and other organizations. He's done it over 200 times. Check out a picture of him from Vietnam. I look a lot like him.

7. I only type with 2 fingers, sometimes 3, yet I have a degree in Computer Science and spent 4-5 years as a (quite efficient) computer programmer.

I will tag Beth and no one else because everyone else is probably tagged. If Will, Mike, Corey, and Paul O. haven't been tagged, then consider yourselves tagged.

Congrats on the new domain and will we need to change our RSS feeds?

WOW- you really do look alot like your Dad! You must be very proud of him.
I think it's high time you paid a visit to the SPAM museum in Austin, Minnesota!
I'm a two-fingered typer too, unless I'm using a number pad.

Monarch, no need to update the feed. My blog is still hosted on blogger.

Lynne, I have heard about that legendary museum! My friends and I should make a "pilgrimage" there. And yes, I am very proud of my dad!

Thanks for playing, Patrick, and those were some great facts! Your dad must be quite a guy. Wow. You'll have to tell us about your Bacon score of 5!

And what a great gift--that Beth's a keeper!
