a linking tag from jean yates

and this is her blog: http://prettykittydogmoonjewelry.blogspot.com.

I was tagged on her blog to write seven things about myself that no one knows...

until now, of course.

1. I was an obsessive-compulsive child. I believed I had an invisible life string attached to the back of my foot and couldn't get it tangled up and other stupid stuff like that, but no particular habit lasted longer than a few months at a time. I had to turn on and off the lights a certain number of times and touch things with both hands in order to feel balanced.

2. I went to art school with Disney Animation in mind, but lost interest when I read the fine print and coincidentally discovered Prosthetic Makeup effects at the same time.

3. I really like stage theater. I love acting and would continue to if I had the time. My favorite role ever was Rosencrantz in Tom Stoppard's "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead".

4. I hate talking on the phone, and always have. It makes my head hurt and my ears burn and my neck always gets sore. Most people don't know this about me, because I try to stay off the phone as much as possible.

5. My top 10 favorite films (in no particular order) are:

A. Amadeus
B. The Dark Crystal
C. The Fellowship of the Ring (if I can only consider one of the three)
D. The Seventh Seal (the 1957 film by Ingmar Bergman)
E. Little Big Man
F. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
G. The Nightmare Before Christmas
H. The Ninth Configuration
I. The Exorcist
J. Raising Arizona

6. My top 10 favorite bands (in no particular order except for #1) are:

A. Pink Floyd
B. Mogwai
C. Explosions in the Sky
D. ISAN
E. Grandaddy
F. Moby
G. Tycho
H. Phish
I. Tom Waits
J. MUM

7. I can play a mean ocarina.

Wow!!! --you wrote back to the tag! you actually did this and you did a great job! I promise I won't bother you again with one of these things for ages!!!! and I will send you telelgrams instead of calling you on the phone and forcing you to listen to me blather on for hours.

ps: I wasn't OCD, but I do have "magic thinking" to this day-- I wave only with my right hand--that apparently is my Good Luck Hand. Sort of dumb when you are a lefty. Plus this causes lots of complications when you driving, as you imagine. :) jean!

You forgot to mention that you play that little accordian, guitar, piano and banjo.

Yep. That's my man.

Um...i didn't see "Tommy Boy" in your top ten list of movies. I think "Amadeus" is one of my all time favs as well.
