Random Acts

Tag.....I'm it!

Each player of this game starts off with ten weird things or habits or little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged must write in a blog of their own ten weird things or habits or little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you must choose six people to be tagged and list their names. No tagbacks! Tagged by Sahbra.


1. My first bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University was in genetics. Yes……I said genetics! The second one is in English with a Creative Writing Concentration. Neither is directly connected to being a College Administrator. 


2. I met my husband in a dance contest at a campus bar during our college years. Both of us had other dance partners and we had both been eliminated and were standing in the little section reserved for the eliminated couples. 


3. I was raised on a farm deep in Appalachia and could drive my grandfather’s pickup truck before I could see over the dashboard. 


4. When I was 8 yrs old, I once “stole” said pickup truck and drove it into town with my 10 yr old cousin riding shotgun. That experience became the inspiration for a short story which won me a college literary award for fiction. 


5. I was engaged twice before I married my husband – third time’s the charm! 


6. My mother has twelve brothers and sisters, but I am her only child. I was born when she was 39 and after 4 other miscarriages. I was my grandparents’ youngest grandchild on both sides of the family and I have cousins who are 30 yrs older than I am. Needless to say, I was quite the indulged and spoiled little brat! 


7. I can tear apart a Harley engine and put it back together and do most of the maintenance on my own bike for fun. I also love working on cars and would love to restore a classic 1964 ½ Mustang convertible – my dream car. 


8. I’m an absolute sports fanatic and love football, baseball, and basketball. 


9. I’ve had fangirl crushes on Bobby Sherman, Tom Selleck, and Rick Springfield, but none since Kevin left us. 


10. I’m a strong believer in the concept of karma. I can’t stand to see animals abused or people treated unkindly, either physically or mentally. Small acts of kindness and simple consideration for other creatures and fellow human beings have the power to cancel out much of the bad things and sadness of this world. 




I tag The MadTapper and LisaStevens, the only two left who haven't already been tagged by someone else!
