[I discovered this in my drafts from 7 or 8 years ago. Might as well post it, as is.]
It's another installment in the meme-tag saga. I'm too lazy to explain a meme, so if you don't know, go here.
Dear Old Dad tagged me here with the "Six Unremarkable Quirks" meme. These are the rules:
- Link the person who tagged you. (See above)
- Mention the rules in your blog.
- Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours. (See below)
- Tag six bloggers by linking them.
- Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged.
1) I am right-handed, but I play guitar left-handed. Well, I don't really play guitar. But when I do pick one up and try to play, I hold the guitar upside down, like a lefty. Just like Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix. Not sure why, but I do.
2) I've never read Moby Dick. Remarkable for a bibliophile and English major. I could probably come up with a dozen more books that I should have read, but haven't, but that's not as remarkable.
3) I walk on my toes. No news here for people who know me. I have a very pronounced walk, one that propels me in a bit of bouncy motion. I have always walked on my toes, a fact that led to a lot of verbal abuse in grade school...Hey, it's Tippy-Toe Joe! and a lot worse.
4) I never visited the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. Quirky? Perhaps not, but I am stretching to find unremarkable things (because I'm so remarkable). What astonishes me about this is that I lived 15 years in Honolulu, during the formative going-on-school-trips-to-important-places phase of my life (Age 3-18). I did visit a friend's house on the base in Pearl Harbor, but I never visited the U.S.S. Arizona.
