Tag (Not the Body Spray)

I've been tagged by Jamisyn.

Every person who gets tagged is to list seven things about themselves. They are to write on their own blog those seven things and then list the rules. You also need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog as well as leave a comment on their blog to let them know they've been tagged.

1. I like to eat chocolate chip cookie dough (the real thing; not so much the ice cream)
2. I learned to knit in a college Deep Ecology class; our final project was to develop a project that we thought would make a difference. I showed the class my first project, a baby sweater, and said that I thought learning to knit was a way of learning self reliance and keeping a dying art alive. Who would've guessed then that knitting blogs would ever exist?

3. Although I have never dyed my hair, I have worn my hair like two Stargate SG-1 female characters.

4. I had a poster of Rhett Butler in my bedroom when I was a teenager.

5. I sneeze when I look at the sun; I have a Trivial Pursuit card that tells me this is known as Autosomal Dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst Syndrome (ACHOO).
6. I used to avidly make music with the clarinet in marching & concert band but I played the tenor & alto sax in jazz band and even played the marching French Horn (or Frumpet) one summer because we were short on brass instruments. It was a lot more fun to be in a section that actually had boys in it!

7. I am an avid Carrie Newcomer fan so I really loved it when she came in River Knits one day to buy Recycled Silk to finish a shawl for her daughter!

I don't really know 7 bloggers to tag who haven't already been tagged, but I'll tag Michelle & Heather, of this blog!

Oh my gosh! Tim sneezes when he looks at the sun too! And so does Aaron. Crazy!

I wish I'd have had a poster of Rhett Butler in my room...I just had a 21 Jump Street Johny Depp poster. :)

I sneeze when I look at the sun, too. I didn't know it was an actual condition. People just thought I was crazy, and Josh just thought it was because I was looking up!

My stepbrother used to ARGUE and argue with me that there was no such thing as sneezing when you looked at the sun. I have saved this Trivial Pursuit card ever since it came up in a game so I now have PROOF! :-)

Sneezing at the sun. That could be a song title or a Hemingway book.
Impressive that you can play so many instruments.

Well I was pretty obsessed with it. I thought I wanted to study music in college. Then I won the chance to play music with the nearby local symphony orchestra and I never saw any people so bored. I decided if really good musicians were that stultifying I didn't want any part of it. I never thought about the fact that maybe they were just not thrilled about playing with all those teenagers. Sometimes I wish I had a chance to just make music with people for fun, but it seems like you have to be uber serious about it or not at all.
