1.) No Green Peppers please! Red and Yellow Peppers are fine.
2.) Size 91/2 EEEE feet. Only brand of sneakers (New Balance) will fit.
3.) Haven't spoken to either of my two sisters in many years. Have no idea where my father is buried.4.) One of the two greatest "Cat Battlers" [fighting by throwing stuffed felines at each other] in America. Camie knows the other one.
5.) Longs to go back to Carmines near Times Square in a way sometimes that is irrational just because I've always had a good time AND something interesting has happened when I've been there. Will accept invites.
6.) Has never been to Europe, due to astonishing lack of money.
7.) Has asked Nietzsche for advice in my head, and usually heeded the advice I've gotten back.
So here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Present an image of martial discord from whatever period or situation you’d like.
I cheat a bit on rule 5, just cause it's Magna Carta day!
