I could have tried to sneak out of one tag, or maybe even two, but three strikes and I’m in… thanks to Ted, Andrea, and Her.
Of course, each tag was slightly different, but I’m a streamliner, so I’ll do five-ish things about me, but they will be five odd things, and some will be things I thought I’d never say about me. (How’s that for fudging the rules?)
One-ish… I have killed a goldfish and considered taking the Empire State Building home in a handbag. Read about it here.
Two-ish… One of my emails accidentally inspired Juli to write an article… about Lauren Winner, Noah Levine, and me. She sold the article to Publishers Weekly.
Three-ish… I am growing carrot heads on my windowsill. They started out bald and boring, but look at them now (above). I think this proves that carrots have stem cells. Could we quell a huge debate with a simple orange solution?
Four-ish… Because I went out for an egg & cheese, I’m writing a book.
Five-ish… I once paid for an ice-cream sundae with 500 pennies. My future spouse was there and obviously ignored the implications for domestic life. I think people would buy fewer ice cream sundaes if they were required to pay in pennies. (It embarrasses future or present spouses.)
And, now I get to tag five people. (No pressure. I never liked tag in school, and if you don’t like it in blogland, that’s fine with me.) Charity Singleton, Mark Galli, Edward Gilbreath, Mark Goodyear, and Craver.
