I've Been Tagged!

I'm an abnormal blogger. I don't post that often on here, mostly because I haunt forums and ramble about my non-writing life (which is pretty boring) on my private xanga (I don't normally give out the link, but look carefully, you may find it). I don't use Bloglines or any other of those nifty things to keep track of the blogs I like, but instead wait for those urges to "find out what everybody's up to" and randomly travel through links to visit my friends.

Which is one reason I didn't find out about the seven sevens meme until today.

I scanned through a few before wondering, "Hey, I wonder if anybody tagged me?" Thus began a purposeful search, skipping past others' ponderings on their lives, likes, and goals, to find one thing - my name. A bit selfish, I'll admit (though I'll visit your posts again later), but there was only slight hope of finding it - what chance does a once-a-month scatterbrained blogger have against all these talented, disciplined celebrities?

So imagine my surprise at finding my name on Chris Well's blog. And in the company of people like Dave Long and Matt Bronleewe. Yippee! Now I feel special. Thanks, Chris!

Learn to juggle! That's a good one.

(And I wish I had thought of that "Tag, you're it" idea.)
