I was tagged by Marina of Sewn Fresh Daily a bit ago to present 7 random facts about myself. I think it is the coolest thing in the world that Marina offers her newsletter in snail mail format.

the rules: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
  1. I love music--really love it. It moves me in ways nothing else can, I think that's because I have no musical ability. Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson are way up near the top.
  2. It really bothers me that it's hard for me to find female musicians I can really dig. Tara Jane O'Neil, Julie Doiron, Jodi (of the secret stars) all continually amaze me.
  3. The older I get, the more I realize only random things make me cry--small, seemingly innocuous moments. These pictures (# 3, especially).
  4. I have really really really bad anxiety, but I'm working on it. Did I mention really really really bad?
  5. I have had purple, turquoise, primary red, fuchsia, pepto bismol pink (and probably some other colors I can't remember right now) hair. I want those days back.
  6. I've told 6 guys I loved them when I was dating them. I knew I was lying when I said it to 4 of them.
  7. I've taken Spanish, French, American Sign Language and Japanese. I can't remember any of them. One day I'll be fluent in something other than English, I really look forward to that time.
Perhaps this is actually more like "7 reasons I'm so emo". Crap. Gotta get my edge back.
But, since I'm toeing the line of sensitivity these days, I think I'll change the meme a bit. I'll tag 7 people out there in internet world to list 7 things they want to learn sometime in their lives. Most of them don't have the time to do this, so if they do, well, I'll jump for joy.
