I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by my fine animal loving writer friend Anne Elliott.Rules: 1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts. 2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves. 3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. 4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. 5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I’m an only child.
2. My favorite instrument is the bassoon.
3. When I was a child, I was disappointed that my dog companion Happy wasn’t like Lassie. I always wanted him to save me. (very revealing)
4. When I was young, I read all of the Oz books and all of Guy de Maupassant short stories.
5. I once took a course in astrology. The instructor told me that my loves would be long distance, men in foreign countries.
6. I've had two great "loves of my life," one long dead. Both were foreign: a Kashmiri and an Australian.
7. In 1997, I very nearly choked to death on a piece of tough meat at a Mexican restaurant. If someone hadn’t called 911 immediately, I wouldn’t be typing these words.
8. I collect wind-up toys.

I'm tagging:

1. Russ Bowden
2. Paul Toth
3. David Blaine
4. Rebecca Cook
5. Steve Kane
6. Martin Heavisides
7. Raymond Federman
8. Rob Chrysler

Ah, well, if you go to my blog,

You'll see a hyperlink that says "100 Things" because I couldn't stop at eight!

Have fun seeing just how weird I really am!

Hmm, should I be worried about No. 5?

I didn't try to compete by producing 101 (it would have been a spotty list since at that number dalmatians had to figure) but I did round mine up to 8 1/2
