Five Things…

January 29th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Rose tagged me for everyone’s favorite “Five Things You Don’t Know About Me” meme, so here goes. Prepare to be enlightened! Or something!

I play the drums.
And I’ll bet if you sit around me at work, the incessant tapping on my desk in rhythm to whatever I’m listening to on my iPod probably gave that away.
I work for AOL.
I started in late ‘99, just in time for the stock to hit its peak and be completely useless to me. And if you knew that I played drums by way of hearing me tap on my desk, then you already knew this one too.
I used to smoke.
Two packs of Basic Lights a day, but I quit three years ago. Now I can’t abide it.
Until 2003, I’d never been outside of the U.S..
And since then I’ve been to Germany, Austria, Ireland, Greece, Turkey, and the UK.
My wife and I are expecting our second child in March.
A boy!

Of course, a meme isn’t a meme if it isn’t passed on, so…

  • Jeanette Jobson, because she left such a nice comment about Nate & Hannah.
  • Cindy Li, even though I’m sure she’s been tagged with this meme before but without her excellent photographs to work from, a lot of my portraits wouldn’t exist.
  • Kevin Lawver, because outside of my own family, I’ve drawn more Lawvers than anyone else.
  • Paulette, because she was nice enough to add me to her blogroll.
  • Stuart Langridge, because this is just the sort of thing that I’m sure would conjure a litany of curses from him just for being tagged. And that amuses me.

Not that I expect any of you to carry it on. Well, except Stuart.

    Thanks for the tag Steve, but Rose beat you to it. I just put up my dark secrets on my blog but I will add your name to my blogroll.

    Your work is too good not to share it!

    Hi Steve,
    You must be checking to see if I look at your blog! I was showing my husband your drawings last night and I took a quick glance at your 5 things, but not the people you tagged. Today I was checking for an update and I see my name. I’ve met some bloggers recently so I guess I’ll go tag some others.
