6 Random Things

I was tagged by Rose City Reader to write 6 Random Things about myself. "Random" suits my mood tonight, so this meme is quite timely.

1. I thumb through magazines from back to front. Mr. Distortion is constantly amazed at this "talent."
2. I read David Copperfield by Charles Dickens (unabridged thank-you-very-much) when I was eight years old.
3. I like to shop and eat dinner at the San Francisco airport.
4. I'm a first-born and stubborn, as is Mr. Distortion. This makes for interesting marital relations at times.
5. I like old tube radios. I have an old Zenith. It should only play old timey music and old timey radio shows and old timey news. I could write a Twilight Zone episode around this thought.
6. I wrote 8 Random Things about myself in September 2007. I know that you can't wait to read it if you missed it the first time around. Smile.

Bonus random thing: I love sarcasm.

If you've not done this meme before, then I TAG YOU!


  1. Having been to the San Francisco airport, I understand why you'd like to spend time there. :-)

    I'm impressed that you read David Copperfield at such a young age! Have you read it again since then to see how it compares to your first memories of it?

  2. I love memes because they afford us a glimpse into the personality of the people we like to read every day. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. "I thumb through magazines from back to front."

    Me too!

  4. literary feline: I've read portions of David Copperfield since then. To re-read the entire thing again is on my list of things to do. I'm really curious to see how much I remember and understood!
