A Forgotten Mame...uh, I mean Meme

Way, way back before my computer and/or personal drama (having to do with health insurance--ugh!) began, I was tagged for a meme by Gavin of Why, Oh Why. It was the famous Eight Things You Never Knew About Me meme. Here goes:

1. In third grade I had a young, beautiful female teacher who was into a lot of the latest trends. She taught us the Hustle, or rather, the line dance version, The Bus Stop. We then had a dance contest. I won first place. My prize was a 45 of the BeeGees "Night Fever."

2. In high school I was on TV on the Rutgers Bowl, our local version of The College Bowl, a trivia based game show. I was our team captain. We made it to the quarter finals but were beat by Vorhees High School. (Damn them! Damn them to hell!)

3. I don't like shrimp.

4. When I'm depressed I like to listen to the Original Cast Recording of Mame. It always cheers me up: "It's Today," "Open A New Window," "We need a Little Christmas," how could you go wrong?

5. In high school I competed in Forensic Speech and Debate competitions. I won numerous trophies in the category of Humorous Interpretation performing an excerpt from Noel Coward's Present Laughter. What a fag.

6. My first job in New York was as a singing waiter.

7. I hate it when people don't personally sign their Christmas cards. I think pre-printed cards are cold and impersonal.

8. In sixth grade I was the power-hitter on my Little League team. Nevertheless, I still threw like a girl and couldn't catch worth a damn.

So there you have it. I hope you found my answers intimate and revealing. Enjoy!

I'm going to refrain from tagging anyone else with this meme since it's so far after the fact. (Sorry, Gavin!)

No worries...I'm surprised you remembered!

Don't feel so bad as you are in good company. Gay Canuck in the Capital just posted his yesterday. I didn't tag him but he was hit back when this first went around.

Glad you are back in the game. I just posted my own issues about health insurance yesterday.

THIS is supposed to surprise us?

I may want my money back. ;)

I didn't know you don't like shrimp. The rest, I pretty much knew. Although you left out the part that your trivia team had decided the default answer would be "Madonna!" To this day, I shout "Who is Madonna?!" during Jeopardy, even if the category is 18th century France...

I love these. It's so fun to learn a little more about people. And listen to all the awards you've won!

And number 7? Me, too!

I just did this meme since I was tagged by Maddog. I was behind in responding too.
