I've been tagged

I have been tagged by The Ethical Slut.

The rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
Tag at least three people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So let's see.

1. I own three copies of Pride & Prejudice. I keep one at home, one in my desk at work, and one in my car. The last two are in case I ever get caught somewhere without reading material. It can be opened to any page and immediate literary bliss will result.

2. I know all the words to all the songs from the musical "1776."

3. I am a terrible driver. Yet oddly, I am an excellent parallel parker. Once I was so proud of the extremely tight space I parallel-parked in that I took a photo of it on my cell phone, showing the mere half inch between my car and the cars in front of and in back of me. I spent the next week insisting that people admire the photo.

4. In high school, I was the editor of the school newspaper AND the underground newspaper. Which is weird, since the whole point of an underground newspaper is supposed to be to go head-to-head with the legitimate one. Yes, I am that much of a dork.

5. I once appeared in public naked, in Aspen in 12 degree weather.

6. My new favorite charity is The Innocence Project. I think they're amazing.

I hereby tag The Career Encouragement Blog, HR Wench, and the Evil HR Lady, who I fear is tagged way too much.

Thanks for the tag - I've responded here: http://careerencouragement.typepad.com/the_career_encouragement_/2008/01/im-honored-to-h.html

I am also a P&P fan - thoroughly enjoying the current Masterpiece series on PBS!

and p.s. I wouldn't give up the anonymity, if I were you. In fact, I'd love to know what happened with the employee who was blogging about you.

Long time reader, first time commenter. I just wanted to let you know that I really like the blog...and I like the 1776 thing. "Mama Look Sharp" is a great song.

Thanks, Darren! Funny to find someone who knows that soundtrack!

Ethical Slut: I actually just gave a small update in the comments to that post about the blogging employee. Basically, I decided not to say anything to her -- figured she had probably forgotten I knew about the blog or assumed I didn't check it, and decided she was entitled to blow off steam. Still irks me though!

If it makes you feel any better, I too was the editor of both the school newspaper (The Knight Report)and the underground paper (The Invisible Ink) in high school. Oh, and the literary magazine. Talk about a media monopoly!
