I've been tagged!

Well, I've been tagged by my friend, Josh...

And that means I get to tell you some random facts about me and then tag somebody else!
So here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

  1. I'm a performer at heart. I love to be on stage, whether I am playing the piano, acting, speaking or Irish dancing (which I am not taking at the moment)
  2. My favorite writer is William Shakespeare.
  3. I was born in Vancouver, BC.
  4. I love frogs. I have been known to roll up my pants and wade into a swamp in bare feet. (seriously)
  5. I have fractured 1 arm and 1 rib (not at the same time!)
  6. People often comment on the "strangeness" of my eyes. (They're not really strange, they just have a yellow ring around the pupil).
  7. My room is the cleanest that its been for years (w00t!)
At the moment, I don't have anybody else to tag as all the other bloggers that I know have been tagged already, but I'll let you know if I tag somebody. :)
You gotta read this post by Raine. Its excellent and perfectly sums up my opinions too. Don't you love reading an article that so brilliantly shows you that you aren't alone in your opinions?

Asher Lev

I recently read some really great books. My name is Asher Lev and The gift of Asher Lev, both by Chaim Potok. They tell the story of a Hasidic jewish boy who has an amazing gift for art. The art that he creates, is not appreciated at all by his family and friends. Read them. They're great. Along with a lot of other things that I learned, I really gained an appreciation for painting and I've started doing some of my own, which I have discovered that I really enjoy.


I can't resist geeky things. Software, gadgetry, I love it all.

Skype is one of those things. I don't need it of course, in fact, I really have no use for it, but its soo cool! Its completely free and you can make free "phone calls" to other Skype users anywhere that there is an internet connection. All you need is speakers, a microphone and the free Skype download. Its pretty cool. You can use it for conference calls and everything. Its cool. And completely free.

(p.s. if you do download it, add me as a contact. I think all of you regular readers know my real name and email.)
