I am it. I was tagged by A at gris-grits. And though I don't always play along, I thought this time it would be fun. So here we go:
  1. Link to the person who tagged you.

  2. Post the rules on your blog.

  3. Write six random things about yourself.

  4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.

  5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.

  6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.
6 random things about myself:

  1. I cried when I traded my 1993 Toyota 4x4 in for my Subaru Forester. My wife questioned my masculinity, but she stayed with me anyway.
  2. Every time George and I get the mail, we sing the song from Blues Clues (which I don't know how I know because he is my first child): Here comes the mail it never fails it makes me want to wag my tail! When it comes I want to wail! Mail!
  3. I have way too many shoes for a man. I have three pairs of running shoes, three pairs of brown dress shoes, two pairs of black dress shoes, 3 pairs of converse all stars, work boots, two pairs of waterproof winter boots, three pairs of tennis shoes, a pair of walking shoes, and a bunch of flipflops/sandals. My favorite pair of shoes are the ones I wore at my wedding - white and brown bluchers, but I don't get to wear them much.
  4. I hate wrapping presents. Hate it. I don't know if it's because I am bad at it that I hate it or I hate it because I am bad at it. Why can't you just give gifts to someone and say "I was thinking about you when I bought this" or "I hope you like this thing I bought for you" or "Here."
  5. I try very hard to do it, but I just can't figure out how to use my grade book. I keep pretty good records, but it never seems right. I need to take a class or something.
  6. My stomach hurts when I eat bananas and tomatoes.
So there you go. Random facts about me.

And now I have to tag 6 people. I don't know who to tag that hasn't already been tagged. But I can give it a shot later.

UPDATE: Here are my tags - Erin at Just Off Magazine, Mr. Clio at World Class New Orleans, pistolette, Professor Homan, A Little to the Left at the Head Pelican, and for shits and giggles, Offsides with Fletcher Mackel.

I thought you were a metro-sexual unto I reached #4...

I'm going to break the rules of your tag game, even though it might be very unlucky for me, and I'm just going to tag you back. I read recently that you liked the movie Jacob's Ladder. I love that movie. There, I shared something personal.

I'm dying to know--did Fletcher Mackel play?
