Since the hockey fans in our home town are doing their best to show that we’re not all work and no play, I guess we’ll do our part…
We have been tagged for a meme. This one is the 8 Things Meme and it comes to us from NYCTEACHER at Mentor Texts & More. Here are the rules:
Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged.
So, here are 8 Facts about us (Mark & Andrea):
- we met while Andrea was on a first date with someone else and would not be together today if not for a misdirected email message
- Andrea failed her drivers test twice; and once put a car in the Rideau Canal
- Mark is colour blind and 6 foot four
- Andrea can twist her tongue counterclockwise to vertical
- Mark has written and recorded several songs (for example)
- Andrea rode her bicycle across Canada, ocean-to-ocean
- Mark has flown in a World War II B-25 bomber
- we drink red wine, eat popcorn with olive oil, salt & freshly ground pepper and watch an episode of Arrested Development every night before bed — no matter what.
