Tag you're it...

Gosh darn it, I’ve been tagged.. Okay so I was tagged a while ago by Kona Shelley but have been too busy to write and I'm supposed to tag 7 others..more on that later. I have to list 7 random or weird factoids about myself.

1. I eat pizza with a knife and fork.
2. I have dedicated my life to attempting to fart the National Anthem (that would be God Save the Queen to you lot, those notes in the US anthem are just too hard). Mr Methane is my hero
3. My mountain bike is a single speed - ie. ONE gear
4. My favorite meal is a plain roast chicken with roast potatoes (crisp on the outside, fluffy inside)
5. I love riding/running in the rain..
6. In the last ten years I have broken over 20 bones (it amazes me that I can walk and talk at the same time without falling over, it amazes my friends even more so)
7. I can play the guitar standing on my head

OK, I’m not going to send or tag 7 bloggers, but list a few people here who I would like to see the answers from. Most of y’all don’t have blogs here, but you should, instead of writing on that silly myspace thingy. So either blog it, or put it in the comments …

7 factoids ... I don't deal in facts about myself well, I prefer jest. :) I'm not ready to pull the trigger on a dedicated blog yet, so ....

1. I eat my food one at a time, I don't know why. Say I have sandwich, soup, and chips... I eat the entire sandwich, then all of the soup, and then the chips.

2. My IQ is somewhere between 138 and 144 (results from 2 different tests, I know it isn't extraordinary ), but you'd probably never know it to talk to me or hang around me. :) Kids made fun of me when I was little, and I made a habit of hiding it that continues to this day.

3. I've spent my entire life playing sports, including rugby, football, etc. And I've broken exactly ONE bone, the middle joint on my middle finger on my left hand during baseball tryouts in college. I have no idea how this bone broke either, it just ended up broken some how.

4. I've never really had sex with sheep. (I had to get sheep in there somehow)

5. A girl I respected made fun of me for pronouncing 'creek' as 'crick' when I was in 10th grade, and I made a commitment to remove WV colloquialisms from my vocabulary at that point. Despite my immense pride and love for this state and the people in it.

6. I have attended 6 different Universities (3 were distance learning though) and still have but one sodding (through that in for you Andrew :) ) degree.

7. I am 39, and still feel like a kid who doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up.

Lordy - I'm bloomin' sorry, but with my jet setting lifestyle lately, I'm only now catching up.

1. I speak, read and write, passable Russian. It actually comes in handy in the most unlikely places. I have no ethnic background for this - it's a fluke of circumstance.

2. I played decent guitar and piano once upon a time ago.

3. I'm a decent singer and actually sang in a bar with a piano trio when I was in college.

4. I was a competitive swimmer and it is still my favorite exercise.

5. My Mom dated Ted Koppel and Jerry Brown before I was born - although my parents have known each other since the age of 15.

6. I adore hot and spicy foods. The hotter, the better.

7. I'm a foodie and a wino. Food and wine are my passions and pursuits. Most people that read my blog know that.

8. My great aunt invented "OFF", and my father is actually a pretty well known architect. My grandfather was State Police commissioner.
