I've been tagged! aka "We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog for this message...."

Well, I usually don't do things like this here, but since I've been tagged at this blog, I will indulge the person who was nice enough to tag me. Thanks Becky! I actually did this on my other blog, but what the heck. Different audience here.

Those tagged must list 7 random facts about themselves. They also need to write in their blogs the rules of the game, which are pretty simple--you list your 7 facts, then list 7 people you are tagging. Then you leave them comments letting them know they've been tagged.

Here are my 7 random facts:

1. Since Becky was the one who tagged me, I can say that she and I share another common hobby other than motherhood (is that a hobby? I guess it depends on the kid!), and martial arts -- knitting! Been doing it for about 2 1/2 years, and wish I could make more time to do it. Even have a knitting blog I share with friends,

2. As of this writing, I am currently #1 ranked in the state for weapons competition for color belts 30-39.

3. I own a purple (the official color is "amethyst") Jeep Cherokee which I dubbed "Purple Haze". Someday I'd like to get tie-dye seat covers for it.

4. I haven't met a pasta I didn't like. Sauces for the pasta, perhaps that I don't like, but not the noodles. YUM!

5. I have taken 5 language courses over my lifetime (if you don't count computer languages), and I don't speak any of them fluently.

6. I don't watch network TV pretty much at all. The show "Heroes" is the only exception in the past few years. I watch a LOT of cable TV.

7. My dream retirement is living in the Caribbean or somewhere on the Southeastern coastline of the US.

The seven people I am tagging are:

1. One Crazy Chick

2. HardHeaded Is My Middle Name

3. Lucky

4. Mat's Way

5. John V.

6. Person #1 that I don't know that reads this

7. Person #2 that I don't know that reads this.

(Black Belt Mama and Frotoe - I would've tagged you, but Becky beat me to it! And Sandy aka "Oceandirt", and Penelope were tagged on my other one, I believe.)

If you aren't up to it, don't worry about it. ;-) I'm just glad you read!

I'll do the Mommy Survey that Becky also posted on her blog on my my regular blog.

I'm actually considering a Black Belt Knitters (and crocheters) webring, rather than starting another blog. I don't think I could keep up with another one! Let me know if it sounds interesting. The only requirements are that you be involved in martial arts and one of the fiber crafts--we'll let crocheters in, too.

That would be cool. You'll have to tell me how a webring works, as I've never been part of a ring like that. Shared blogs, yes. Webring-- I guess not yet! :-) And I'd say that I definitely qualify with TKD and knitting! :-) (I have a fascination with spinning, dying and weaving too, but all in good time. I'm still figuring out the dying and spinning part, thank you very much!)

Wait what about quilters?
Love, Oceandirt

Hmmm....I don't see why not. Good point, Quilting Mistress (female Master). I think you'll have to talk to Becky too, see what she thinks. ;-)
