rats... tagged again.

So I just signed onto my "bloglines" to read my blogs that I subscribe to via RSS, and saw that my sis got tagged for an 8 random facts Meme... I got to about point 1 and thought (I bet she's gonna tag me) Sure enough :)

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I was a passenger in a Camaro (late 80's) in a high speed police chase that ended tragically for another family. We hit speeds over 100mph (my friend and I were in the back seat, and it was his car). The "bad guy" had stolen a police car when they tried to catch him on the highway. The "bad guy" doubled back on them, jumped in their car, and took off leaving them stranded on the side of the road. My friend and I saw this happen right in front of us while we were at the red light. My friend said "should we stop and help?" I said "Sure" So we pulled over, and the two officers told us to get in the back seat (not sure why they didn't tell us to just wait on the side of the road). We took off after them. It was thrilling! We ended up losing the car at an intersection... which is lucky for us... a few minutes later, the bad guy ran a red light, and T-boned a station wagon with a family in it. He lived, but he killed most (or all, I can't recall) of the family. If we had not lost him at the previous intersection that could have been us that was in the accident.

2. I've only really been in one fight (fist fight) in my life. I was around 7, I lost, and it was with a girl. (I'm actually proud of this fact - not that I lost to a girl, but that I've only been in one fight.)

3. I don't like talking about myself (which makes this meme difficult).

4. I used to enjoy camping so much, and then it slowly became a pain in the neck. I hope to get back to camping someday.

5. I find it amazing how my sister is able to remember so many details about her (and my) childhood, where as I can barely recall what I had for dinner last night. I struggle to think if I've consciously blocked out my memories or if I've simply forgotten.

6. hmm, I guess I should throw a habit in here... I suppose I have a lot because I don't like change. So I don't really think of them as habits, but more as things I like to do over and over... I go out with a friend of mine to the movies almost every Saturday night for the past 15 years or so.

7. I went to a college in upstate New York for forestry and surveying for just under one semester. It was the best vacation I ever had! I got in a snowball fight while drunk, and got hit in the eye with a snowball. Ended up going to the hospital the next day because I couldn't open it or see out if it. Doctor said I was lucky, and that in a few days it should be ok. I hated being at college after several weeks. It got to be the week before final exams, and I was not doing well with several of the classes... I ended up just packing all my stuff in my 1967 Jeep and just left. I didn't know what the process was for "dropping out" and didn't care... I didn't tell anyone and I just left. For all I know, they're still looking for me.

8. Finally... I have a skull collection. Some real some fake.

I don't know any other bloggers other than my sister (who tagged me) and Valejandras, so I guess you are now tagged V :)
