I’m It! 8 Random Things Meme


Yay, I feel special. Only Partially Insane tagged me for the 8 random things meme going around, which only proves that… well, that she’s only partially insane. [Sorry, Leah, I didn’t notice you tagged me until now!]


  1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  3. People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
  4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and that they should read your blog.

Eight Random Things About… Teacher Tom

  1. I have athlete’s foot on my left foot. Not on my right.
  2. My niece took a look at the tufts of hair on my feet, pointed, and said, “Ashy’s feet.” Ash is their family dog, an enormous Shiloh Shepherd.
  3. I once hitchhiked across the Midwest.
  4. I use a yoga ball as my office chair at home.
  5. I worked the night shift at Star Market, a supermarket chain in Boston, while courting my then-girlfriend-now-wife.
  6. I once shaved my eyebrows off.
  7. I once won an award for a short story I wrote in middle school… about vampires.
  8. “I love it when they call me Big Poppa.”


A lot of the WordPress circle has been hit so far, so I think I’ll tag a bunch of Xanga folk:
