My Liberal Identity:

You are a Reality-Based Intellectualist, also known as the liberal elite. You are a proud member of what’s known as the reality-based community, where science, reason, and non-Jesus-based thought reign supreme.

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and whom you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

08:01 pm - I've been 7 Thinged
Seven Things Meme

I've been tagged by deedop. I'm spectacularly lacking in facts that both random and interesting, but I'll do my best:

The Rules:
Here are the rules: Each person tagged blogs 7 random facts about themselves, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

1) I'll be fifty next month, and over the years have done things that should have resulted in some pretty severe damage. Despite this, I've never broken any bones*, never needed stitches*, and never had anything wrong that required going to a hospital. When people start talking about their health, I get really quiet.

2) In a reversal of the standard geek sterotype, my parents live in my basement (okay, my house doesn't really have a basement, but they live on the first floor and I live on the second).

3) I don't have a televison. I've never watched much TV, and last winter I realized that it hadn't been turned on since the last episode of Angel aired. So I unplugged it and freed up the space in my living room. However the parents have television, and every now and then I'll visit with Mom and watch whatever happens to be on Animal Planet, so I'm not completely cut off from modern culture.

4) Bruce Springsteen patted me on the shoulder and told me that he hoped I'd get a chance to enjoy some of the concert (that was in 1979, during my rock n roll years - his band was doing a sound check and he was roaming the hall, making sure everything was the way he wanted it. I had stepped out of the office for a bit to watch, and he stopped to chat for a moment. I told him that I'd miss most of the show because I had to work, and he was nicely sympathetic. I should note that my function during this time period was to be the sober, level-headed person who watched the box office and counted the money.)

5) I live a little over 15 miles from where I was born.

6) I cannot sing. I was kicked out of third grade choir because I was so awful that I threw everyone around me off tune. This does not stop me from singing VERY LOUD when I'm alone in my car with the radio cranked up.

7) I love glass. I particularly love large lumps of non-representational brightly colored glass that is useless for anything except looking neat and collecting dust.

I'm supposed to tag 7 people now, but I've waited so long to do this after being tagged that I think this meme has already passed on to where all good memes go. If there's anyone reading this who hasn't already done it and wants to participate, consider yourself tagged.

* I think I broke the big toe on my right foot skydiving. But I knew that broken toes don't get put in a cast or anything, so I didn't bother to get it x-rayed to find out for sure.

**There were some wounds that probably could have used a stitch or three, but butterfly bandaids and adhesive held everything together, and I've always been real good at healing. My body would be hell to identify - I have no scars at all.
