Feels Like Elementary School All Over Again

Cathedral Pillars in Cordoba, Argentina

A little while back, my cyber pal Brooke “tagged” me for a “meme” (blogger bio-esque post).   I’m flattered and since I’m sans recipe today, it seemed a good time to honor Brooke’s meme request.  Bear with me if you tuned in for a recipe and not some ho-hum dribble about my personal life.  I promise a recipe again tomorrow!

The Rules
“I have been tagged to post 8 random facts. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts: Each participant posts eight random facts about themselves. Tagees should write a blogpost of eight random facts about themselves. At the end of the post, more bloggers are tagged. Go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they’re tagged.”

Tidbit #1
I’m an avid cyclist.  I commute to work every day on my bike and I love the fact that more and more people are doing the same.  My biggest biking accomplishment to date was a 7 day, 575 mile charity ride across Montana in 2001.

Tidbit #2
I travel a fair amount, mostly solo.  My favorite country I’ve visited so far was Iceland.  My most recent trip was to Argentina and Uruguay.  And my favorite spot in the world is a little outcrop on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Tidbit #3
I grew up on a dairy farm in rural central Pennsylvania and draw my appreciation for hard work and fresh food from that upbringing.  There’s a grove of old black walnut trees there, standing on the side of a hill, which I plan to use to shade the house I’ll build someday.

Tidbit #4
I’m obsessed with checking weather reports.  This habit can be attributed to tidbit #1 and tidbit #3.

Tidbit #5
If I had $10,000 to spare, I’d buy a new bike and some professional photography equipment.  Then I’d go to Portugal to use them both.

Tidbit #6
I wanted to be a vet when I grew up.  Instead I got degrees in world literature, communications, marketing and management.  Sometimes I wish I had stuck with my original plan.

Tidbit #7
I drink a lot of tea.

Tidbit #8
I’ve taken several belly dancing classes and made my own costume, jingly coins and all.

Tidbit #9  
Just joking… that’s all folks!  Now go visit these great blogs to learn more about 1.) eating local and/or 2.) exploring Philadelphia:
