I've Been Flim-Flammed !!!!!

Okay, that's not true, I've simply been tagged(but I have always loved the phrase, "I've been flim-flammed" since a friend yelled it in college). That's right, I was walking in the woods, and I felt a sharp poke in my right buttcheek, and when I woke up, I had this large white tag with a number 767 on it. The tag was applied by Jennifer over at Offbeat Homes, and now I feel a need to reveal 8 random things about myself:

1. I was almost named Sean. My Mom wanted to name me Sean, but my dad would not allow it.

2. I broke my leg when I was 2 1/2. I was run over by a dog.

3.I once shook hands with Gabriel Byrne in a bar in New York City. I told him we shared a last name, and that I loved "Miller's Crossing". He said. "Thank you."

4. I did not know that I needed glasses until I failed the eye test for my driver's permit.

5. My first semester of college, I had a class that met on Tuesday and Thursday. I did not know it met on Thursday until about 5 weeks in.

6. I totalled my parent's car when I was 17(not entirely my fault-3 car collision, I was the middle car).

7. When I was in high school, I wrote a trilogy of horror movies, and we(my friends and I) actually filmed two scenes !!

8. I once had someone tell me that I was too "musically ignorant" to appreciate Steely Dan. I still think Steely Dan suck, whether I'm ignorant or not.

That's it, 8 random things about me, I forgot my tranquilizer gun on my raft, so I will not tag anyone, but if you feel like doing it, feel free, just let me know so I can check it out.

Hi there! I was tagged by Jennifer, too, so I stopped by to read your meme...

I laughed out loud at number 5. That is one of my recurring nightmares:

I'm back in college (one-hundred years ago when horseless carriages were all the rage and ladies were just starting to show their ankles in public). It's the end of the semester (or close to it.) I realize I never attended ANY classes. An "A" is looking a little impossible. I wake up bathed in sweat and the only thing I can think is, "Dammit. Now I have to wash the sheets."

Great blog, great post!

I agree, 5 was classic. Too funny. Thanks for playing along. But I will say this, Steely Dan and suck, in the same sentence! Oh no. That's cool though if we all liked the very same stuff we'd be cute little sheep which would bite.

Angelique- I'm glad I made you laugh. it turned out to not be too tragic, it was a science class, and I was aiming for a "D", and that did not hurt my chances.
Thanks for the visit and comment.

Jennifer-Sorry about the Steely Dan.
