Six Pony Facts

Meckinock tagged me for this. . .

"Once tagged by this entry, the assignment is to write a blog entry of some kind with six random facts about yourself. Then, pick six of your friends and tag them; no tag backs. This explanation should be included."

1. I'm an active listener. This means that I have a hard time using music as white noise; if there is music in the background, it distracts me so that I have to listen. I cannot, for instance, have a conversation in a car if the radio is on. This drives Little Sister Pony nuts, because she likes to keep the radio on in her car. But she loves me, so she deals with it.

2. I used to row crew in high school. We were one of fifty-six public high schools in the entire country that had a crew team. I loved the sport, but I was (and still am, for that matter) too short to row in college. Fortunately, the sword awaited me there. . .

3. I speak English, German, Spanish, and a little Hebrew. Beyond that, I can swear in Yiddish, French, and Russian.

4. I really hate cheesecake.

5. I once spent twenty minutes shaking cream into butter in a glass jar. . . because I was too lazy to go out to the store and buy a package of butter. Trust me, it made sense at the time.

6. My hair is so curly that it never fully straightens, even when it's soaking wet.

Tag you're it: Dawn Felagund, Saadiira, NS_Tulkas, Cabell, Perelleth, Meggins

LOL! The butter thing does make sense!

For some time I shared a huge apartment with four other people, a fifth floor, no elevator, so it was terrible whne it was Sunday and we ran out of Coke, beers, cigars, pop corn or any other most important thing in life. So we ended up placing a pulley in the elevator shaft and then we would phone the man in the bar round the corner, and he would come and bring us our necessities, placed them in a bucket and we would lift it up five floors...all in the name of laziness! ;-)

Rowing sounds amazing. I really love watching people doing it, love how they glide over the water, and I do some canoeing whenever I can. But it must be a very demanding sport as well!

I've never lived in a house with a dumbwaiter, but I can see how one would be useful. Particularly since I suspect that your apartment was in Europe, and therefore the fifth floor would be actually six floors from the ground.

Rowing is somewhat demanding, but it's a lot of fun as well. And, once you get into the rhythm, your body finds a groove, and you can just keep going for quite a while. I actually enjoyed the time I rowed in a 3.5 mile head race.
