  Here are the rules:

Each participant shares five little-known facts about themselves. Those tagged are asked to do the same as well as reiterate this guideline. Each select five folks to be tagged and list their names. (Leave a comment letting them know that you’ve tagged them and that they may see your blog as an example.)

Except, in keeping with a radical movement started by

 , I’m including more than five entries, and not all of them are true.

1) In college, I simultaneously managed a cafeteria, two convenience stores, and a sandwich shop.
2) I am now told I have no managerial skills.
3) I hate the beach.
4) I wrote a novel in Econ class in the 11th grade.
5) I named myself after an island a scrotum in a poem by Keats
6) The OC is my favorite TV show.
7) Both of my parents quit school before high school.
8) I once watched Willie Gault steal first, second, and third in a pick-up softball game. Reggie White was the umpire.
9) I like cheese.

I’m tagging free radicals.

    So very cool. Re: #7—true for me, too, although both of them finished later. My father actually finished and then did college, while in the military. And re: #8, I KNOW who Willie Gault is!

    Both #7 and #8 are true. My father got a GED eventually.

    Willie was so fast, he took off running on the pitch and was on first when the catcher caught the ball.

    Re: Willie—OMG, that must have something to see. I am a huge Dodgers fan, and my baseball story is watching Orel Herschiser pitch a no-hitter against the Reds in Cincy. I was in the nose-bleed section with a man I was completely CRAZY about, and I was, yes, kind of drunk, and Orel was only a speck, but it ranks right up there as one of my top-ten life events.
    Looking forward to baseball season . . .
