Illustrated Meme

Becky tagged me for a meme.
Here are the rules:
  • Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share seven facts about yourself on your blog – some random, some weird.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.
1. I enjoy rock climbing. Here's an interior shot of the place we climb regularly, Aiguille Rock Climbing Center.

2. I've been married for 26 years to a man who still writes me love songs. If you would like to hear one or two, check out "Still Making it Up as We Go", "Bid Adieu, Gwendolyn", or "I'd Find You" on the music player gadget in the right-hand column of my blog.

3. I'm a baby blood donor. It turns out that my blood does not contain antibodies for a fairly common virus (CMV) and that makes it safe for newborn babies.

4. I just got a new car! A 2008 Volkswagen Jetta, to be precise...

5. I enjoy cryptic crossword puzzles. In fact, my whole team at work enjoys them, and we work on them together every day over lunch! My favorite cryptic authors are Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon.

6. I'm a volunteer literacy tutor. I've been working with this young man (pictured here with his younger brother) for a couple of years and his vocabulary and reading comprehension abilities have soared! ;)

7. I'm the only person in the whole world who can only come up with six things to say about herself! ;)

And now, I would like to pass along this fully optional (but fun!) meme to the following bloggers:

Christine of And Sew it Begins
Caity of Caityquilter
Connie of Couturesmith
Eileen of Side Seams
Wendy of West 38th

Thanks for sharing these facts, I laughed at the 7th! Like the premise of your blog, found you through The Happiness Project.

Love the illustrated twist!

Great factoids about yourself. I'd imagine that having a song written by someone just for you, must be a pretty special feeling. You are lucky!

There must be more! These 6 are pretty interesting. Thanks for sharing.
