I’ve been tagged

I’ve been tagged by the “8 Things You (Probably) Don’t Know About Me” meme.

For the record this is like a chain letter x 100, to which I would normally classify as spam. But for the spirit of keeping things going, and punishing those I list at the end =) I’ll post my 8 things.

The rules: link to your tagger and post the rules; list 8 random facts about yourself; tag 8 people at the end of your post; let them know they’ve been tagged.

I was recently tagged by Tish Shute aka Tara5 Oh in Second Life. Tish I’m so sorry it took me a while to get around to posting this, but here we go.

1. I’m a classically trained violist. After attending high school at Baltimore School for the Arts I studied with Boston Symphony Orchestra member Michael Zaretsky and Michelle LaCourse while at Boston University. I don’t currently play often – but that’s something I hope to get back into this year.

2. I have a very large family – my father being the eldest of 21 children. I have a ton of cousins running around the world. I still to this day can’t remember all my aunts and uncles names (I don’t even know many of my cousins). It’s a piece of trivia I play with my mother (who can usually remember most of their names).

3. My father is currently suffering from kidney failure – to what degree and cause we’re not quite certain. I’ve chosen to stay in Maryland with my family for a few months until we find out more information. I’m 100% a daddy’s girl, so it’s been tough. I call my dad THE BULL. He once had an episode of kidney stones to which he took some pepto-bismol and went back to work. Needless to say he’s an amazingly strong man mind, body, and soul — truly my hero.

4. I suffer from “crazy dog owner” syndrome. Yes I admit it, I am that girl with the cutie little dog who wears sweaters, hats, glasses, shoes, scarves, and more…..all designer labels of course. She also has a doggie daycare in Boston. =P

5. My creative juices flow late at night between 1am and 4am. If society didn’t frown on it I’d be completely narcoleptic. But since that’s not the case, my sleep schedule is totally random, and usually consists of a mid-day nap.

6. Growing up I was a bully. Mostly around my middle school years. I really hate to admit this, but it is what it is. I’d like to take this moment to apologize to anyone I may have hurt. Looking back on it now I can say it was out of boredom. Isn’t that why most children miss-behave? But thankfully through music and the challenges of a performing arts high school I found better ways to occupy my time.

7. I look just like my mother. People frequently mistake us as sisters. Once in the grocery store the produce clerk mistook me as my sisters mother – I about died. There seems to be this mystical point in life where black people stop aging, I’m apparently not there yet.

This is just too much information…..

8. I’ve always secretly crushed geek boys. ~THE END~

I’m passing on the pain and tagging: (please don’t hate me)
