P-Jak's Meme - by Brad

Lindsey and I got wrangled into some chain-blog thing called "Meme" from Peaby and Brazenlilly. I think the line might fizzle out with us, but we'll see what we can do.

The Meme Rules: (1) I have to post these rules before I give you the facts. (2) Each player starts with eight random facts/stories about themselves. (3) People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (4) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. (5) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

I am following rules 1-3, but I will probably break rules 4 & 5. Sorry to fail the prior meme-ers.

Anyway, here I go...

1. If I could go back to school and choose another career, I would be an astrophysicist. It would give me a great sense of accomplishment to help plot the course for space shuttles and figure out how to use gravity to slingshot satellites around planets.

2. I own approximately 30,000 baseball cards. Most of them collected between 1987 and 1993.

3. I like to listen to Enya every once-in-a-while.

4. After I got my drivers license, I was pulled over 10 times in 4 years. However, I only got one speeding ticket. Now, I haven’t been pulled over in 7 years.

5. I never flossed my teeth until a couple years ago when I decided I needed to create a schedule to ease myself into flossing. I now floss every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

6. The first song I learned on the guitar was House of the Rising Sun.

7. When I am talking, I often accidentally mix up the words “hundred” and “thousand.” Being a CPA, this is very annoying.

8. On the night that Lindsey and I started dating again (see #5 of Lindsey’s meme below), I lied to her about being cold so that she would share her blanket with me. It worked because we held hands under that blanket, and at that moment I knew we were going to get married… well I certainly wasn’t going to let her dump me twice!

Whoa... I'm weird.

Okay, so this was sort of fun... so in my feeble attempt to participate with this chain, I will "tag" my sisters Gail and Carol, Toby, and my mom... but don't feel any pressure. I sure didn't.


Brazenlilly said...

Yeah! Thanks for doing that! It was fun to read. I didn't know they had a major for astrphysicists at Western Baptist. Does it come with a minor in Bible? Also? Hundreds and thousands? TOO funny.

Peaby said...

Question on you use regular floss or those prewrapped floss-pick thingy's?

Brad said...

Regular old floss that you wrap around your fingers. Those pick things really aren't anything more than a toothpick.

And I HATE those flossers that have a handle with the floss stretched between a "U" shape... you just don't have the same control.

Peaby said...

THAT's what I was talking about. I love those things! It's the only way I'll floss. I keep them in the basket in our coffee table so I remember to floss while I'm watching TV.
