Teh Tag

I didn't realize it, but I'd been tagged by JackGoff and many days ago, at that.

I'm not normally responsive to anything remotely resembling chain mail, but heck (I mean "hell" -- must keep that rating up), I needed a subject to post on, I've just committed to daily blogging, and the blog's fairly new. So in the spirit of . . .

And anyone one can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me.
. . . . . here goes.

Rules (per Jack): Each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people; then visits those people’s sites and comments, letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.

1. I am pierced in exactly five places. Guess where correctly, and you win 500 irredeemable points (h/t to Phydeaux for the concept of irredeemable points).

2. I have a tendency to alternately rant wildly and then collapse into a puddle of cross-transferent empathy.

3. I have had a maximum of 3 concurrent cats living with me at any given time.

4. I have "kept" (if that's the correct phrase -- as in, "she keeps cats") a total of 13 cats in my lifetime of 50 years. (A pitifully low average, IMO -- only .26 cats per year. I hope to remedy this in future. Please be kind. My mother was allergic . . . I got a late start . . . . and for good measure --- The dog ate it.)

5. I possess a completely useless college degree, but a very good education.

6. My best hours of the day are 10 am - 2 pm, and 10pm -2 am.

7. I have a temper which I have not taken pains to tame, as it has sometimes been my best friend, and once allowed me to transcend a queer-bashing. I keep Teh Temper in a specially-marked drawer in my Wiccan cupboard. Keep your hands off the cupboard, and no one will get hurt.

8. I eat animal flesh, although I was vegan for many years, and for many reasons.

I really can't bear the thought of "tagging" anyone without their consent, so I hereby "tag" the first 8 volunteers who make a comment on this blog indicating that they have consensually agreed to be "tagged" by me.

Are you It?

YAY! Sorry about not letting you know. I've been rather delinquent around the b logosphere over the past few weeks. :-(. And hey, cool place you got here!

Hey PD! I might - I said might - be able to talk myself into the 8 things bit, but I can't think of 8 people to pass it on to....

And to answer your #1 : one in left ear, three in right ear, and one in tongue.

Sorry Phydeaux -- A very logical try, given my proclivities, but I cannot award you those much-deserved points.

I cry now.

I'll take up this challenge so you will have passed it on without having to tag anyone. Might be tomorrow before the thing gets up, but it'll get up.

Can I say you tagged me? No one ever tags me for anything, and this might make me look cool.

Yes, I hereby declare that Gender Blank is TAGGED! So tagged. Tagged beyond belief.

I think you look cool already.

I took the plunge... (I got 'officially' tagged by Incertus (Brian), so I guess I had no choice).
