Six Things You Really Wanted to Know About Me

My new pal DC Urban Dad tapped me to do this meme. You know I love to talk about myself, and I figure it's time for something light-hearted.

Here are the ever-so-simple rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know he/she has been tagged.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six rules. Six things about myself.

  1. I know all the words to Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Note that Mac Daddy loathes this song so I sing with extra gumption when he's around. Just for kicks I put it on repeat on my iPod when I really want to test his unconditional love and my irresistability.
  2. I have never been camping. Camping is not on my bucket list. Do not try to change my mind.
  3. I have a recurring dream that my teeth are falling out one by one. I only know one other person who has had this dream. It's been on my dream playlist since I was in college 20 years ago.
  4. I think American car companies do the suckiest job ever of usability and consumer testing. Companies that do not understand their consumers infuriate me.
  5. I have an 8-inch long scar on my left knee from when I got caught in barbed wire when I tried to escape boarding school at age 15. From then on my letters home had a return address of Foxcroft Penitentiary. No one found that amusing but me.
  6. I have an extra tooth in my mouth. Bird has the exact same extra tooth.

Extra tooth huh? Random and odd.

Yeah, camping is not on my list either.

I too have the bad dream of my teeth falling out, in fact just last weekend I had this dream. I know it means something, but I can't recall what.
