6 Random Things

Children in the Corn tagged me for the 6 random things quest.  Here is my go at it:

  • I am learning to play violin – though a friend says he’s never seen anyone smile playing violin…he assures me I should play fiddle because everyone smiles while playing fiddle!
  • I don’t like hot chocolate but I drank many cups of it while wooing my wife in college.
  • I have three degrees:   B.A., M.A., M.S. for which I am still paying.
  • I am an Eagle Scout
  • I love Big Band music more than any other type
  • I grew up in a small town of around 500 people…not a single stop light in the entire county.

I don’t know a lot of folks who would likely complete this so I will tag “Anonymous”.  If you want to participate, please do.  I think it is pretty fun to read random stuff about other people.  Let me know if you do a post…

Now, since I am onto random, here are some more random things:

  • I am home with Abigail today as she is sick.
  • By profession, I am a software engineer but I would love to live a more simple life.  I think I could easily be a full-time farmer…if it would pay the bills.
  • I love hot weather.
  • My favorite cake is red velvet
  • I have been stung hundreds of times by bees.  It barely even hurts any more.
  • My favorite movie is probably Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood.  I also like the BBC version of Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice.
  • M*A*S*H is the all time best tv program ever followed by Dukes of Hazzard and Airwolf

That’s all for now!

  1. Oh Man, I LOVE BBCs version of Pride and Prejudice!!!! (Of course, I find Colin Firth can draw me to just about anything, but that’s besides the point!:) Thanks for playing along warren!

  2. Poor Abigail, I hope she is feeling better soon!

    I agree, reading random things are a lot of fun for some reason. Probably because inside, people are nosy and curious. Haha 🙂 I love red velvet cake also and small towns rock. I could never live in a big city! I get nervous in traffic.

  3. I have two awesome sons who married awesome women and have two awesome grandchildren.
    I’m retired.
    I work at the Courthouse
    I love small towns–especially the one we live in
    Love baking pies — mostly fruit pies
    The snow is beautiful when I can stay inside and look out
    Also like to see bears from the inside looking out
    Love the water–there’s a dam near our home
    Love my dad and miss my mom

  4. I didnt know you were an eagle.
    I would like to see some of your childhood “pinewoods”!!!
    I am posting Joshuas car from last year right now…check it out. 🙂

  5. We had one stop light and 1000 people, guess that makes me big city, lol!

    We keep bees too but because of CCD lost 7 colonies two years ago. We are down to one. Very, very sad.

    Enjoy your blog thoroughly! Kim

  6. Kim,
    That would sorta feel like a big city. I remember the first time I drove in a town with a stop light. The closest light was about 25 miles away. I drove the van there and had to change lanes too…it was terrifying!

  7. tipper – I have been practicing my Christmas carols and I may post something about violin…if I ever feel confident enough to pull it off!

  8. DRW – I mostly am getting better though it is a really frustrating instrument (maybe they all are?). Still, I can play a bunch of fairly basic songs and stuff. I won’t ever be in a symphony though…
