Tag, I'm it.

I have been tagged. Actually, I was tagged about a week ago.

Finally, I will respond.

First, I must post the rules:

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.

2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

3. People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.

4. 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 that they should read your blog.

5. Thou must post eight. Eight shall be the number of the posting and the number of the posting shall be eight. Nine shalt thou not post, neither shalt thou post seven, excepting that thou then proceedeth to eight. Five is right out. Once the number eight, being the number of the posting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Tag in the direction of thine fellow bloggers.

  1. I do not eat liver. Not beef liver, nor chicken liver, or any other creature that it might be pulled from. I do not eat foods that have liver in them.
  1. I love shoes, I have many, many pairs, but 98% of the time I wear one of three favorite pairs. I have a pair I love that is about 5 years old that I have worn exactly once, because they don’t match anything I own.
  1. The first blog I ever read on a regular basis was way back in 1997. It wasn’t even called a blog, because I’m pretty sure the word hadn’t been invented yet. It was, and is no longer around. I miss it.
  1. If you’ve ever seen the concert/documentary film Scorpions World Wide Live, there is a scene in a record store, where they are signing autographs. I was there.
  1. I drink my coffee black. No cream, no sugar. I also like it rather strong.
  1. When I was a senior in high school, I made the finals in an international casting call for the musical GODSPELL. While at the auditions, I met James Marsters. He was cast as Jesus, I didn’t get a part. (17 years later, I played the Lamar part)
  1. I stuffed envelopes and knocked on doors for Gary Hart in 1984.
  1. My biggest fear is loneliness. I worry about dying alone, or just being home alone and having a heart attack, and there being no one to call 911.

I tag - (I know, some of you may have done this) Anne, Gourmet Goddess - (it doesn't say you can't do it again), Jennifer, Camera Obscura, Tink, Tart, Robin, and Boxer Rebel.

You met Spike? Rock on!

So, I take it you're not a fan of foie gras?

Brave Sir Robin said...

Never tried it. I would probably give it a chance, but I had an idea I wouldn't like it.

And yes, I knew him when. And yes, we all knew he would make it. He was that good.

The Red Queen said...

I don't eat liver either- Hello its a crap filtration system. Why would I want to eat some other animal's version of a septic system.

I was in a production of Godspell, I played the Sonia part. And I appear, briefly, in the Duran Duran Concert Tour Movie Sing Blue Silver. I guess we didn't have the same taste in music in the 80s.

Brave Sir Robin said...

Actually, I kinda liked Duran Duran, but that was definitely my "heavy metal" phase. I listened to almost everything except for chugga chugga chugga music.

Brave Sir Robin said...

What year did you do GODSPELL?

brandann said...

and having been in the same room w/ james marsters gives you your own "you rock" chart, and you have earned your first 5000 points. a bonus 500 for redoing the blog rules ala monty python, which i wanted to do, but couldn't have remembered it nearly as well as you did.

i went hungry for almost a week as a child...we are a fisherman's family, as in cast nets, set them for a day or two, and pull them in for our money fishermen, and when our demand was higher than supply, they tried to get me to eat fish liver. w/ lima beans. the septic system of a septic system, considering what most fish eat. eww!

maurinsky said...

BSR: It must have been 1992 or so. It was a community theater production that would not end. We started off with a weekend run, but we actually got FAN MAIL and a huge demand to continue, so we did it almost every weekend for a year. Thankfully, the cast was awesome and we all got along famously.

Brave Sir Robin said...

That show tends to make a cast a family more than any show I've ever done.

GourmetGoddess said...

I like liver *runs away* everyone in my family likes liver, as far as I know. There was great sadness when the Alabama cousins came and shot a deer and we told them they couldn;t eat the liver. "Well, why not!?" So, my uncle cut it open and the flukes fell out. The deer in Wisconsin get liver flukes from living in the swamp.

Brave Sir Robin said...

That is gross

konagod said...

I'm impressed that you were reading a blog in 1997. I barely knew what a blog was in late 2005!!

Brave Sir Robin said...

It wasn't called a BLog, that's for sure, but is certainly was.

I was searching for a RENT theme for my computer, and this girl had designed her entire site with a RENT motif.

She used the site as a daily diary and shout out to her friends and readers.... A blog.

It was awesome.
