7 things you may not know about me(me)

Thanks to Barbara Nixon’s tagging skills, I’m now part of the “7 things about…” meme (not sure how to pronounce meme – watch the video below).  Her blog post was text, but saw Jason Falls did a nice video a couple weeks back… mine’s a hybrid:

  1. Grew up in Bermuda
  2. First car = ’79 Ford Granada
  3. Went to high school in Italy and Alabama
  4. Own an ice shanty
  5. Was gifted a “Bush knife”
  6. Invented snowboarding
  7. Son had open heart surgery

Want more details, or just enjoy watching unattractive people talk to themselves?  Watch the video:

It’s not for sale, but I do have a pic of the “Bush knife” up on flickr!

And… you’ll notice I didn’t pass this meme on to others. May it die here, cause nobody likes doing work when they’re on vacation.

    How could you forget to tell people again that you don’t own a cell phone? That seems like in and of itself to be a pretty big deal! Just sayin…

    @Kyle – Kind of feels like a half-truth… since the wife owns one now.😦 Plus I use cellphones for @drunktsand and @treestand. Would hate to come off as a hypocrite. Sorta like me telling folks not to drink until it’s noon.

    Did you see the video? Gave you and Jason Falls a shout out for your accents.🙂

    Hope you had a great Christmas! Will be visiting you in Boston, so buy a comfy couch — hide-a-bed FTW!

    I was JUST copying and pasting your url to TAG YOU in the same meme, and noticed someone already got you!! I guess we all want to know more about TSand!!!

    @darryl – Too funny. Thanks for attempting to tag me, you armadillo killer.

    It might just be me, but sitting on ice, trying to get fish out of a hold, in a tent, sounds complicated. Why not just stop by the fish market? Better chance of finding lobster, priceless.

    Your Granada was a decade newer than my first car, which was a Caprice. It was a Chevy. Still driving American made but my taste has improved, and I can still fit 6 girlfriends in it. I see a road trip to Vegas in my future.

    You don’t own a cell phone? I agree with Kyle James that in itself is huge!

    @Tawny – We have a REAL ice shanty… think, bachelor pad on wheels (on ice). Wood burner, 7 foot ceiling, room for 8.. just like Grumpy Old Men minus the Metamucil. Stop by with the bottle of wine and I’ll give you a tour!🙂
