I've Been Tagged

By Mary!

(In case you're not aware of this phenomenon: tagging is one of the ways that bloggers keep themselves amused. It works like this: you compose a post according to a formula (what are the last five songs you listened to? what's your favorite book? etc.) and then "tag" other bloggers to do the same thing. And they tag more bloggers, and so on. Kind of like a chain letter, but fun.)

In this case, the tag is "five things you don't know about me." So, let's see.

1. Sometimes I wear a kilt.

2. I once had lunch at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis. (It was an open house for journalists; I wasn't a journalist, but I was the ride for a non-driving journalist friend.) My name tag indicated that I wasn't the press, so I was mostly ignored. Good lobster, though!

3. I have seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer at least once.

4. Earlier this year in Köln (Cologne), my partner and I made the folks at the Roman museum crazy by asking where the remnants of the Roman road were. There is a bit of the original Roman road in Köln's Altstadt, but nobody seems to know it's there. I thought it was cool (although, strewn with trash, a bit sad). Of course, I like old stuff.

5. One of my relatives tutored Lady Di. (At least, that is what my family claims.)

Now it's my turn to tag, and I choose Gianandrea, Ben, Mark, John, and Matthew.

Heh. I've got you beat! I've seen every episode of Buffy at least twice. And, have even read some of the scholarly treatises about the show.

I still mourn the loss of both Buffy and Angel.

I'm having to content myself with Joss Whedon's comic books (ur, graphic novels) these days.

Now that is definitely interesting. I don't wear a kilt, but I've responded to your tag here...

Ditto on Buffy and Angel, and I'll raise the ante a Firefly!
