Five Things People Don’t Know About Me

I’m not a big “meme” fan, but this one’s fun enough.  So here goes:

5. I like talking with people, but I hate the phone.  It’s an evil invention that interrupts your life.  I avoided buying a cell phone for years – in fact, it wasn’t until my wife became pregnant that I found a good reason to own one (a cell phone, that is, not a wife).

4. I’m so bad at dancing that I can’t even do the two step without tripping.  No joke – I tried.

3. When I was a little kid, I performed locally as a ventriloquist (my dummy’s name was “Jerry Wiggins”).   I even won a few talent shows, but gave it up after a couple of years.

2. I flunked out of college the first time around (yes, I was studying computer science at the time).

1. Screw pessimism – I’m still waiting for The Beatles to get back together.

    I’m supposed to spread this meme to five other people, so I’m tagging some fellow RSS geeks: Brent Simmons, Dare Obasanjo, Kevin Burton, Greg Reinacker and Niall Kennedy.  (And if you didn’t want to be tagged, blame Mark, not me.)

    1. “2. I flunked out of college the first time around (yes, I was studying computer science at the time). ”
      Would that happened to have been at UMR?
