Avoiding Crisis

8 things

with 7 comments

This here meme has been going around a few of the blogs that I read on a regular basis. Since nobody is tagging anyone I decided to tag myself.  What do I need, like a personal invitation or something?

So here are 8 random things about me:

  1. I collect pigs. No, not real ones, silly. Most of my collection is in storage though I do have a few random pieces floating around the house.
  2. One of my favorite stuffed animal pigs that I have is the Mao Ze-Pig that my husband found while he was traveling in China – it’s a cute little stuffed pig dressed up like Chairman Mao.  Totally priceless.  Made a bigger impression than the jade pendant he brought home.
  3. I’ve never stolen anything except for this one time when we were at the Philadelphia Candy Show and there was this adorable stuffed pig being used in one of the displays and I somehow convinced myself that it was a give away and took it.  It wasn’t a give away.
  4. Years ago while I was working at a big trade show that my company put on I got to see both Duran Duran and Blues Traveler perform in private concerts.
  5. I got to meet John Popper after the concert and he gave me an autographed harmonica.
  6. I am such an awesome little sister. I gave that harmonica, along with the set list, guitar pic and my backstage pass to my brother.  After all, he was the one that introduced me to their music.
  7. I really don’t like going to concerts. This is probably because I don’t like big crowds.  That being said, one of the last concerts I attended was at the Beacon Theater (in NYC) to see the Allman Brothers Band and it was well worth it.
  8. I miss living in NYC but I will never ever live there again. Sometimes that makes me sad.

Pretty boring, I know.  Feel free to tag yourself.
