On Facebook there is a meme/theme that is interesting. You write 25 random things about yourself and you "tag" 25 others. But there is no reason to limit it to Facebook.
If you read this consider yourself tagged. Leave your 25 things in a comment or post your link in a comment. I'd love to find out some random things about my readers.
I was tagged Saturday morning, here are my 25 things:
1: I was born in Salzburg, Austria, left after 6 months.
2: My parents are Polish.
3: My parents wanted to emigrate to Canada but couldn't because I was under 2 years old.
4: I had whooping cough as a baby. There is a saying that to cure it you have to cross over a body of water, in this case the English Channel seemed to do the trick.
5: I really miss not living with my kids.
6: I like Hugo Boss suits.
7: I think of myself as semi-literate.
8: I like to notice irony and believe "ironic design" proves the hand of the supreme being more than "intelligent design." Because there is someone/something paying attention, moment to moment, and trying to mess with us. Intelligent design is more about "set it and forget it."
9: I'm an atheist.
10: I'd like reason and logic to make a comeback, I'd like to see a new enlightenment.
11: I try not to think too much, instead, allow myself the space to think.
12: I keep a pen and a slim moleskine notebook always on hand - it's my hipster PDA - it's instant on, high definition, stylus input, sharable, and 100% recyclable.
13: I prefer offline to online.
14: I've never had a wine cooler and want to keep it that way.
15: I don't know how to small talk.
16: I am afraid of karaoke. I can't carry a tune even if it were super-glued to me.
17: I like thinking on my toes.
18: I like "and" rather than "or." The world is not black or white it is black and white and more.
19: I like to have my cake and eat it.
20: The more I write the more authentic I become.
21: I like Manhattans.
22: I like Manhattan.
23: I like road trips.
24: I'm intensely interested in the future of media.
25: I prefer conversation more than going to the movies.
