It finally happened. I've been tagged with one of these get-to-know you blog quizzes. I like these, actually. I see them on other people's blogs and and wonder why no one wants to tag me. Then I think "Well I'm too good for these things anyway!" but really there aren't many things I'm too good for. Anyway, Cindy (mindy-pindy) tagged me, so here we go.

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning
B. Each player answers the questions about themselves
C. At the end of the post, the player tags 4 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they are tagged

10 years ago I was:
A senior in high school. Driving a blue Explorer that smelled of pine tree air fresheners. WAY into ska music. Sporting a head full of thick lustrious locks. I didn't wear glasses, but I did wear dumb pants. I had a crush on the girl I sat next to in art history. Also I was way into art history.

2. The whole reason I started this blog is because I wanted a girl to see how clever I am. But I haven't even talked to her in almost a year anyway.

You've been tagged:
I'm actually not going to tag anyone. Do as you will, bloggers.


  1. South Central Murray respresentin'!!!

  2. East Murray right on the borderline of West Holladay

  3. Reading about the "rules" of this blog game reminded me of a game we had. And that game was 1,000 degrees of Arnold. I'll start. Neil Flynn.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. Who is that? Are you cheating?

    I think I can go with an Elaine or an Alan and stay withing the rules. But if you're going to get tricky I'll throw out Alain Resnais.

  6. Ooooo, tricky. I will go with (based on IMDB's suggestion) Alain Resnais's classic I Want To Go Home.

    You're pushin' your luck here pal.

  14. I'll BRB, if you haven't responded by the time I get back I will assume the game is being post-pond until tomorrow.

  15. Yea, me too. Star Trek is a big gap. I'll see you on here tomorrow.

  16. Ed McMahon, host of Star Search.

  17. English language Soccer may be a popular sports in The united kingdomt which has turned into a part for its habit. There happen to be various soccer competitions in the nation. But more than the rivalry and strenuous energy of them tournaments stands out as the unifying principle within the sport which could carry it all through several years.
