Eight random things about me
Having been tagged by Apathetic Nation I am duty bound to reveal eight startlingly humdrum random facts about myself
1. I have a phobia of snakes
2. The span of my arms from fingertip to fingertip is longer than I am tall and yet there doesn't appear to be an organgutan blood in my family.
3. My favorite band is the Asylum Street Spankers.
4. I think Patrick O'Brien is one of the greatest novelists of all time.
5. I have drunk beer and argued politics with living Canadian Cultural Icon Stompin' Tom Connors.
6. I hate brussel sprouts.
7. I once went skydiving.
8. I was once a professional cook.

2) I can't watch violent movies.
3) I'm a direct descendent of Oliver Cromwell.
4) Sometimes my lack of efficiency makes me totally furious with myself.
5) I had to skip riding today and I'm sitting here missing "my" horse, Sky.
6) My idea of the perfect vacation is sitting in a hotel bar drinking irish coffees and blogging.
7) I'm listening to Gomez (the freakishly well-adjusted young men) but have the Decemberists' "Leslie Ann Levine" in my head.
8) Getting tagged raised me a crawly amphibian in TTLB ecosystem. I shouldn't care but I do. Damn you TTLB, and thanks, Rev!
