The Game of Tag: I’m It!

Ah, life is so fun, isn’t it? Even as adults we still get to play tag... I was tagged by Kammie of Passion Meets Purpose yesterday (Update 12/10/06: I was tagged by Rosa of Talking Story too!), so I have to share five things you don’t know about me...

1) Like Kammie, I was a big tomboy when I was a kid (still have a little tomboy-ish qualities!) I played softball in grade school. In high school I was the captain of the varsity basketball team and I also played volleyball. Ran cross-county for one season - a friend begged me to sign up even though I didn’t want to. It was a great experience learning that I could actually run miles and miles without stopping ;)

2) I have a secret (no longer!) dream of being a singer someday ;) I used to listen to Prince all day and sing into my hairbrush. I even joined the drill team to learn some dance moves so I could dance and sing!

3) I played in the junior high and high school band. My parents forced me to play the piano when I was a kid and the music got into my soul! I went on to play the clarinet, flute, and saxophone in high school.

4) I survived the Mt. Pinatubo (Philippines) volcano eruption back in the early 90’s. A friend and I spent eight hours shoveling ashes off the roof of her house so it wouldn’t cave in. Then all of the military dependants (I was a Navy brat!) had to get on the carriers to evacuate the country. So, I know how people in New Orleans feel!

5) My favorite food is prime rib...yum ;) I also love enchiladas! Oh, and barbeque ribs...oh...and....

Well, now I have to tag five other people, so I’m tagging Raymond Salas, Troy Worman, Tim Taylor, Rick Cockrum, Dave Mauder...I was going to tag Debbie Call, but it looks like she’s already played...

Have fun! YOU’RE IT!

Hey, this is great Maria! Thanks for tagging me! Good thing I'm using Google Alerts or I might not have known you did it.

I'll try to get mine posted tonight. :-)

Now... I just have to figure out who to tag.

Troy Worman said...

Thanks for the tag, Maria. You'll find my list of five here: http://troyworman.com/wordpress/2006/12/02/five-or-more-things-you-should-know-about-me/...

Thanks again. I Love The Good Life! And you...

Rick Cockrum said...

Hey Maria,

You've had a life of adventure! And talented, too! The closest I've gotten to a volcano was watching the movies, and that's the closest I ever want to get. Pinatubo was... You've got some good karma.

It took me a little longer than I thought to come up with my list. So, here's the 5 things you never knew about me!

Tim Taylor said...

Maria,

It's so hard to consider a flowing queen like yourself being a tomboy but I guess we can be both.

Thank you for tagging me. I answered here:

Fun list Maria. I was in the choir in middle school, high school and when I was in the Navy. Boy soprano in middle school, tenor in high school, and baritone in the Navy. Not quite the band, but I still love music, just not the same way.
