New Year’s Meme January 3, 2009

This is a fast moving meme and I was tagged by Morag in Saskatchewan.

Seven things you probably don’t know about me.

1.       I have a mad passion for the music of J. S. Bach played by Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. This passion has been a part of my life for decades and I still cannot shake it.

2.       I have not yet finished reading James Joyce’s Ullyses. It sits on my shelf and calls to me. So I have taken it down and resolved to wrap that up.

3.       I have a Tibetan Terrier who is a great joy in our lives. Dalai, named for the Dalai Lama, has a name that reflects my deep interest in Buddhism.

4.       I never really felt comfortable enough to drink wine or beer until I was 50. I’m 51 now and those few glasses of beer I had were enough to last me.

5.       I once applied to the CIA and the Canadian Foreign Service. I got an interview with one of them but a certain large chinned PM froze hiring so I went to Japan instead.

6.       I was a Special Education teacher for 19 years in five different schools before I went on to Higher Education.

7.       I rarely use the telephone to talk to people but I text and am an inveterate e-mailer.

Not going to tag anyone – too much like a chain letter.
