Tagged: The Meme Challenge

Okay, I’ve been double tagged for a meme challenge -- by Terry at Counting Sheep and by Sandy at Fighting Fatigue (if you aren’t reading these blogs regularly, you should. They are treasures). I’m not sure about the origins of the meme challenge but I read somewhere that it began in 2005. Who am I to break with such an ancient tradition?

The 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

7 facts about me:

  1. I was one of five people who was at the Woodstock music festival who didn’t get stoned.
  2. My father and I said, "I love you" to each other for the first time at my wedding.
  3. I once rode up in an elevator for 25 floors with George Harrison (of the Beatles, remember?).
  4. I climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and dove a wall off Grand Cayman island. I learned that I am happiest on top of mountains or 100 feet under water. It's in between where I have the most trouble.
  5. I have been going to an annual 24 hour science fiction film festival for over 20 years where 300 people sit in a dark theater for 24 hours watching sci-fi films from the 20's like Aelita Queen of Mars ( a silent Russian film about the workers' revolution on Mars); red menace films from the 50's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers (for all of us kids who believed we were adopted into the wrong family), and The Day the Earth Stood Still (the best sci fi movie ever); films from the 60's onward like Dr. Strangelove; 2001 A Space Odyssey; Blade Runner, Buckaroo Banzai, Donnie Darko and on and on and on.......
  6. My favorite book is Don Quijote by Miguel de Cervantes (which, for literary trivia buffs, is the first novel ever written).
  7. I know the words to most of the songs from Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein musicals, but only the walls of my shower will ever hear me sing them out loud.

Here are the blogs I am tagging:

Love your list, too, and a belated thanks for the tag! I particularly love that you do best way up high or way deep down, b/c that's precisely where I do the worst :)
