I got tagged by OzAtheist for the six random things about myself meme. Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you. (That's the underliney bit at the top.)
2. Post the rules on your blog. (That's what yer reading.)
3. Write six random arbitrary things about yourself.(That's what yer on pins and needles waiting for. GET ON WITH IT!!!!)
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. (nag nag)
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. (Oh for fuck's sake I'm on DIALUP!!!!!)
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up. (Yoh! OzA! My entry is up. If this announcement doesn't count, I'm also sending the info. via twitter.)
Random Fact About Fiery #1- I let a pro-lifer have it on the phone today. She called up wanting to play a recorded message for my mum that was a matter of "life and death" urgency. When asked what the subject was, she said abortion. I said, "Abortion is a horrible...horrible...horrible thing... to prevent. Abortions should be available to women to prevent unwanted pregnancies and unwanted children." and then I added a very bright and cheery, "THANKS!" Click. I wish I'd had time to think of a better answer, but that was mine off the fly.
Random Fact About Fiery #2- I don't give a rats arse about getting the mail. Some people compulsively check every single day (or have to because of the quantity they get). We have a post office box where our mail is delivered (no street delivery) and I send my daughter to check what's there about 3 times a month.
Random Fact About Fiery #3- I love sorting things and putting things in order especially books. Best job I ever had was as a used book store owner and dealing with the books we got in on trade- sorting, organizing, shelving. YAY!!!!! In fact, when I'm cleaning house and I find a deck of cards I always sort them by suit then by rank. You'd be appalled if I told you the method I use.... every time.... Red above, black below, bumpy on the left, smooth on the right. In other words, from top to bottom Hearts/Diamonds/Clubs/Spades. *snerk*
Random Fact About Fiery #4- I play the flute (and have since 5th grade) and love performing. But I can't bring myself to practice if I don't have a performance coming up. Yet I'm happier when I play. I even majored in music education at university but didn't complete the degree as I got pregnant with my son and didn't want to teach in a public school.
Random Fact About Fiery #5- I just found out that my parents could upgrade their internet service for about $45 a month. Fingers crossed that they say yes!!!!!!
Random Fact About Fiery #6- Every time I get on the computer my cat Neko comes to sit on my lap.
Bonus Fact about Fiery- several people are going to be surprised and possibly even disappointed that none of these facts were about sex. It was with great restraint that they were not. :P
Let's see... as to who to target as most of the bloggers I know have already been infected with this meme and I know that even on dialup. *rolls eyes* Yeah, I'm about 3 weeks behind the times.
And Sean- your meme about blogging's effect on me is next on my list. :)
XO- Ya up for it? Or are ya feeling all crotchity since Dash left?
Protium- Yes. I know. You can't be bothered. But I bet you can come up with some interesting bits about yourself.
Harry Nads- You can leave it here if you're so inclined. :)
T&A- gets a mention because I miss his blog like crazy and hope things are well in the friendly skies.
LaLibertina- who recently showed up again on Atheist Nexus, some of us knew her as EvolveIntoBirds. YAY!!!!
Richard- Put the brandy down and tell us about yourself. :)
