I have been tagged and I can’t be more excited. Grace Boyle, a talented soul who I just started following on twitter (@gracekboyle) a few days ago, thought I would be a good candidate for the”7 Things You Wish You Didn’t (Or Did) Know About Me” meme. How does one pick just 7 things to share? Sounds fun.
Here’s how it works:
- Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
- Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
- Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
- Let them know they’ve been tagged
So on to the fun part. The 7 things I think you may or may not want to know about me, in no particular order, are:
“If I grow my hair for 6 months and then put a comb through it I can produce an exceptional afro.”
“I am an avid golfer and have a 5.3 USGA handicap rating. I recently lived out one of my dreams by playing Pebble Beach.”
“My father passed away when I was 17. 18 years later I still miss him but know, in the short time I knew him, he helped to shape me into the person that I am more than I knew he ever could.”
“During my sophmore year of college I came very close to quititng school at Villanova to go to culinary school. I read “Becoming a Chef” and decided to stay at school, make cooking a hobby, and maintain a social life in my 20′s.”
“During the first 3 months of 2008 I saw 11:11 or 1:11 on clocks at least twice a day, sometimes more. Angels or Devils, someone was trying to tell me something. “
“I have skied in the following US states: Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Pennsylvania. I would like to double that number”
“I recently got engaged (Christmas Eve 2008 to be exact) to a lovely woman name Kelly Eastman. When I first met her I told her she was too hot for me. I still agree with that. This picture cracks me up. I am not usually that “dramatic”.
It is time to pass the favor along. My 7 people include folks I would like you to know as well as those I would like to know more about. Drum roll please:
Michelle BB – [blog, twitter] – One of the best b2b marketers I have ever met and one of the few at Quaero who have embraced Twitter. We are currently having a twitter grader battle royale and she is one hell of a competitor.
Jason Jacobs – [blog, twitter] – Friend and founder of RunKeeper. It is great to watch someone take a dream and make it a reality.
Kelly Eastman – [blog, twitter] – My lovely fiance and talented Real Estate agent. She is also the one that keeps me pointed forward.
Jared Polin – [blog, twitter] – Extremely talented photographer and blogger. I love how he uses voice and images to tell a story.
Derrick Kittler – [blog, twitter] – One of my best friends, talented technologist, and brainstorming partner.
Scot Duke - [blog, twitter] – Mr. Golf Business seems to be living my dream by mixing my favorite past time and business into a way of life.
Steve O’Grady – [blog, twitter] – Former co-worker and founder of Redmonk. Steve is a very talented guy who mixes technology, music, and Red Sox passion into a living tapestry.
I hope you are all up for the challenge.
