happy birthday.

well, my initiation into blog culture has been swift.

after just a few days, my friend claire over at needle book tagged me in some sort of bloggy tag game. my first reaction was the way i felt about chain letters/emails. after i got over actually believing in curses, i would always just throw the things out (having made one exception a few years ago for a chain letter that involved sending strangers new panties). but then i read claire's entry after having been tagged herself and thought i should stop being such a crank and do this thing.

so.


seven things about me:

1. at 9:50pm pacific time tonight i will have been on this planet for exactly thirty years. at that time, on this date in 1978, my mother was having a ceasarian section and, being in vancouver, i imagine it was raining.

2. i have two parents, one parental-type and a brother.

3. the only formal post-secondary education i have is a diploma in physical theatre from a school housed in a converted odd fellows hall in california.

4. i have a problem differentiating the words otter, oyster and olive when speaking. i wrote my only ever stand-up bit about that. this lead me to put down my pen and never try to write stand-up again.

5. fake teeth.

6.

7.

i'm sure there are seven things about me, but somehow i stalled at five. i guess the last two are mystery items. i am also going to have to tag every blogger i know. except for carl wilson. i think i fear judgement from him. oh, and no tag-backs. this is a one-time deal.

tagging:
1. smogdammit!
2. torontunian
3. little dog monday
4. tara bursey
5. girl number twenty
6. creampuff revolution
7. rhya

rules:
1. link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

dude, fake teeth - cool and somewhat intriguing? and does that mean we can make up things for the last two? thanks for the tag....
and Happy Birthday, of course!

Happy birthday!! I can't believe 2 out of your 7 things are "mystery items". Honestly! Alright, my guesses are that 6. you dream about living underwater a lot and 7. that you have freakishly strong toes.

the fact that you responded to your tag so promptly means you are a better human being than i am. which also means that this day, your birthday is an auspicious one. happy birthday beckster blogstar!!! see yous later.

I had the same chain mail reaction myself. I've ignored a few tags but then again some people seem to like it so I was fighting spoil-sporty feelings myself...

6. you have a secret closet crammed full of head-kerchiefs

7. your earliest aspiration was to be a synchronized swimmer.

i like this guessing game.

i also like to believe that in some other quantum reality, all your guesses become true. but that's only because i know nothing about physics (except, presumably, for what i experience) and approach it as i would fantasy.

you tagged me.
nice.
i love that you are blogging. i am actually reentering the world myself after what seems like a long hiatus.
but it feels fun again so three cheers for fun again!

results of this experiment in saying yes: i still feel a little chain-lettered and embarrassed but would never have been mad at anyone for sending me this thing.

i think i will stay away from such activities in future, but thank claire for her grace in demonstrating how to engage in these things properly vai her blog. she's a pro, and possibly a genuinely positive person. i buy it, anyway.
