5 Things You Don't Know About Me

I've seen this all over the net these days, but I thought I was too far out on the fringes of the blogosphere [WikiPedia] to get tagged. Well whaddya know, Anthony just tagged me with the "5 things you don't know about me" meme [WikiPedia].

Basically, the way this works is that someone "tags" you to blog about 5 things people may not know about you. Then you tag 5 other people to do the same thing.

So… here are 5 things you might not know about me:

  1. My first computer was a Timex/Sinclair 1000 [WikiPedia], with the 16KB (that's KB, not MB) memory expansion pack. The first program I wrote for it was an Astrosmash clone. In BASIC, of course.
  2. I used to play rhythm guitar in local heavy metal band. Make that two local metal bands. I had long hair and everything. I still have the guitars.
  3. I have all of the original action figures for Star Wars from 1977-1980. I don't mean that I collected them recently, I mean that I still have them from when I got them as a kid. That includes their accessories. Thanks to my Mom for refusing to throw them away when I became a teenager.
  4. As a kid, I lived on Pensacola Naval Air Station for a couple of years. Pensacola NAS is the home of the Blue Angels. For a young boy, there is absolutely nothing cooler than watching the Blue Angels do practice flybys when you're playing outside the Officer's Quarters.
  5. I know Karate [WikiPedia]. Actually, two kinds [WikiPedia]. But it's been years since I practiced, so please don't try to beat me up. I'll just run away. Quickly.

So there ya go. And now to tag other people!

Let's tag StickyC, Robin, Brian, Ronbo, and Cantoni. Can't wait to see what ya'll write.
