Randomness

I never really got into doing memes, but I’ve been tagged twice with this one, by Sweetpea and Wendalicious. So I feel obligated share some random, obscure facts about me that I’m sure you could care less about.

When I first got tagged with this, I had no idea what random items to list. But then once I got started I came up with a whole bunch and had a hard time deciding which ones to edit out…

The rules:
* link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
* share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
* tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
* let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog.

The five bits of random-and/or-weirdness:

  1. My career ambition in the 3rd grade was to be a stand-up comic.
  2. I go through cycles where I really enjoy beer and will often drink one at night after work. But then I’ll go through long spells where I can’t be bothered to touch the stuff. Currently I still have 3 bottles left from the Saranac 12 Beers of Winter 12-pack that I got before Christmas. I plan to drink one during the Super Bowl.
  3. I made my TV acting debut during my senior year in high school in a 30-minute special on teen drinking and drug abuse produced by WRGB. During a re-enactment of a teenage keg party in the woods (which was actually taped in WRGB's parking lot) I got to play the part of "guy-making-out-with-girlfriend-on-hood-of-car."
  4. I have all 6 episodes of the classic TV series “Police Squad!” on VHS somewhere in my attic.
  5. I’ve been to four big league ballparks: Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, U.S. Cellular Field (back when it was New Comiskey Park) and Olympic Stadium. I stood outside of Wrigley Field, but the Cubs weren't in town at the time. I regret that I probably won’t make to Shea Stadium, just to say I’ve been there.

NOTE: I've only tagged people with their own blog. If you don't have a blog or you would just like to get in on the fun, feel free to leave your own random items in comments.

How come I don't remember the WRBG thing??? (Snicker)

At first I reacted, "You've been to Fenway? Willingly?" Ah, yes, then I remembered when. That was a fun trip.

I remember the WRGB PSA. I was the drunk driver smoking pot (apple juice and tea leaves-very rough) and maybe another segment. Liz wanted to be the driver. Do you have that tape? I also remember doing a news broadcast at WRGB, Nicky L. was also there but a I can't remember the other two people.

Unfortunately, I do not have the tape (that I know of). There might be a copy somewhere in my mom's basement.

Scott did a memorable PSA for them too. He might have a copy of everything.
