Well, this is a first. I got ‘tagged’ by Heather over at Cottage Blogger. This is when bloggers write about the same topic and kind of ‘pass it on’ to other bloggers. It helps get your blog seen by some who might never look for it. Kinda cool.
The subject is ‘7 Strange But True Facts About Me’ . So if you’re interested, here we go:
- I’ve had a driver’s license for almost 22 years and have never owned a car. Frankly, I’ve barely driven. If you ever see me behind the wheel, you might want to steer clear.
- I used to train in kickboxing. It was a real martial arts gym (not ‘boxercise’) with real fighters. I never sparred though…too much of a wimp for that. I took my classes with all guys and went to see a bunch of amateur and professional fights. Damn I miss it.
- I used to play electric bass. I still have my beautiful Fender Precision Lite and will never get rid of it. I love that thing and keep saying I’ll pick it up again.
- I used to shave my head. OK, not totally. I was ‘blond’ in my twenties and used to cut the bottom half of the back of my head extremely short. So when I wore a pony tail, it would be blond with the brown part at the bottom. Thought it looked cool at the time. Yeah, yeah, the red is fake too.
- I’ve taken at least 5 major vacations by myself. And I’d recommend doing it to any other woman…or man.
- I’m a Monty Python nerd. Yes, I have memorized way too many skits I’d care to admit. Miss. Ann. Elk.
- I don’t love to draw. Shocking, huh? I don’t sketch, doodle or paint in my spare time (which is minimal these days). I feel drawing has been my ‘job’ since I was 12. It’s how I make my living and it’s better than doing a lot of other things. Now, I will tell you to practice and draw as much as you can to develop your skills. But I do it for the money, honey. : )
Hope I didn’t burst any bubbles on that last one. Just being honest. I love cartoons and telling stories visually. I just wish they’d invent the plug that goes into my head and all the drawings just happen. Until then, it’s back to my animation desk!
I’m going to pass this tag to:
