7 Things That May or May Not Be of Interest

Several days ago, Lin Burress tagged me to join in the "7 Things About Me" meme.   I’ve said before that I usually shy away from memes but Lin is a blogger I really like & respect so I just couldn’t refuse…   especially considering that none of the others Lin tagged have risen to the challenge.

First, the rules:

  1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
  3. At the end of the post, you tag up to 7 other bloggers.
  4. Leave a comment on their blog or send an email so they know they’ve been tagged.

So, off we go!   Here are my 7 Things:

  1. I bought my first computer, an Atari 800, in 1983.   It had 8KB RAM, a blazing 300 baud modem, and ran & saved programs on audio cassettes.
  2. I’ve kissed the Blarney Stone at the top of Blarney Castle in County Cork, Ireland.
  3. My favorite numbers are 3 and 7.
  4. I worked (remotely) for America Online for nearly 4 years back in their heyday.
  5. I kissed a dolphin in Cancun!
  6. I have 2 tattoos and one of them is the 2Dolphins logo.
  7. Although I once owned a hand-me-down Atari 2600 that I got from my brother Rich, I’ve never bought a video game console.

Now, to keep this meme moving along, I hereby tag Ricë, James, Joy, Brian, Bobbie Leigh, Anita, and last, but certainly not least, Dinia — who should be able to easily come up with 7 very interesting things about herself.   Have fun!
