Seven Things -- Blogistan?

Well, my friend, Maraca, you have me in your clutches with this one. I may do this in stages. Or not. I spend time of late thinking "maybe I will, maybe I won't."

Blogistan? Are you the first to coin that moniker? I ask because I have not read it here. Yet. Or rather, before today.

Vicki @ Maraca: Seven Things has tagged me to reveal seven things about myself, preferably random or weird things.

Here are the rules:
1) Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2) Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird
3) Tag 7 more people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs
4) Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Seven random and/or weird things about me:

I can, yes, I can, touch the tip of my tongue to the tip of my nose. (eeeuuuwww factored in)

My memory for all things 'my teen years' is mostly blank. I worry that this is not normal. Or is.

I do not vote in primary elections because I don't think it is the business of the lady at the counter, which party I am voting for. Registered Independents Unite!

Years ago I was a dancer. Tap was my specialty!

I have four new books sitting on the night stand waiting patiently to be read; I dust them free of charge.

My parents named us sans middle names and we were always referred to by our full name at home. Never a nickname.

I owned a 1976 Yamaha 400 motorcycle. Had to. I was The Parts Lady on Saturdays at a busy motorcycle dealership. When I sold it at the end of the same summer I purchased it there were 84 miles on it. I was a much better passenger than driver.

Okay, who to tag?
That's coming up in an edit a little later.

Hey, thanks for playing! The tongue thing is impressive. And I'd give money to forget my teen years. LOL

I got "Blogistan" from Jaquandor, who used to blog at Byzantium Shores, I'm not sure whether he coined the name or not, but I believe it's the Blogger equivalent of "J-Land". Anyway, it always made me smile.

RE: Primary Elections-- This is why I love Oregon's vote-by-mail. I can vote for whoever or whatever I want and no one can connect ME with that vote. It's very liberating.
