Karyn Romeis tagged me with the 8 Random Facts Meme. Karyn is one of those great people that I think is very smart and who I've never met in RL. So I was thinking about how to respond to this tagging - I'm a rebel, I live on the edge - you know, blog fast and die young, so I wanted to do something a bit different. First, evidently I am required to post the following:
1) Post these rules before you give your facts
2) List 8 random facts about yourself
3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged
After the facts I'll tell you what I did that I think is a bit different.
Now, just the facts ma'am,
Ha-na: I study Tang Soo Do
Tul: This December I will have been married 17 years
Set: I will finish my PhD (but not in history)
Net: I long to win the lottery but never buy a ticket
Ta-sot: I think I'd move to Scotland if I thought I could find a job
Ya-sot: I think we should force-feed children a curriculum full of challenging, creative and inter-disciplinary courses
Il-gop: I think the learning/training community is waaayyyy too intellectually inbred and needs to date outside the family
Yo-dolb: I have been a fast food worker, a busboy, a waiter, a roofer, a contract archaeologist, a contract historian, a teaching assistant, a grad student, a consultant and a federal employee and I'm hard-pressed to tell you which job taught me the most.
So now the last part of this exercise is is that I am supposed to "tag" 8 other people...so I'll do that in a way. The people I choose though occupy a spectrum, some I know very well and some I know slightly and some I wouldn't actually recognize if I met them on the street - the common thread however, is that I respect all of them. Fingers crossed then on any of them responding to the meme. I partially do consider myself the dumbest person on the 'net since I seem to learn something from everyone I meet and these people I ABSOLUTELY learn a great deal from.
The list however, will only include 7 names because the eighth name is reserved for you -the untagged reader. If you read this, and choose to accept this assignment, please feel free to join the meme and let us know where to find you. You, are the one I really learn the most from - thank you.
The Magnificent Seven (+ one) (I also will rely solely on these people having ego-searches (like we all do - it's all good) to look for their own names on the Web and not leave comments on their blogs)
