Because Memes Are fun, That's Why!

8 Random Things

The Rules:

Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.

Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.

Players should tag eight other people and notify them that they have been tagged.


The Eight:

1. I'm an ambidextrous shooter.

There you are. I am not going to tag anyone specifically, but, if you'd like to do the meme, leave me a comment so I can check it out!

BONUS FACT: I love the sound of bagpipes.

Hello...I am out hunting blogs tonight. Actually, I made a list of bloggers who I thought had kick ass comments on other people's blogs and decided to look them up if I ever had the time.

Yours was on the list and I am glad I came. Very nice site you have here.

The eight things were interesting, mostly because I don't share any of your habits it seems. I don't own a firearm, can't stand beer (mostly because of the yeasty, malty taste thing) and suspect that the police academy would be too hard for this whimpy ass of mine.

But...I enjoyed reading your stuff.

Actually, none of these are surprising to me!

Bagpipes, of course!
Love the list and the photos make it just oh-so-much-fun.
Was THE police academy anything at all like POLICE ACADEMY?
I wonder....

Hello and welcome, Maria!

I'm glad you came, too... how did you find me?

Melanie,

does this mean that I have become predictable already?

Jenn,

No, the police academy was nothing like the movie. It just wasn't as hard, academically, as I thought it would be.

After boot camp, naturally the police academy would seem skate to you. What could compare to boot?

Oh, and the bagpipes? Gotta love them, especially when played by men in kilts. (ha!)

Maria said...

I am trying to remember how I came across you...

Let's see...all I know is that I have a list of people's blogs who I thought made great comments on blogs I read and I bookmarked them to read when I had the time.

Yours was on my list twice...so you must make multiple snappy remarks...

Very interesting 8 facts! I love a good yeasty beer and have no patience for those dopes either.

Never tried firing a gun, but my SIL is a police officer and a pretty good shot herself, so I'm told.
