Seven Things You Don’t Know About Me (MEME)

An interesting meme, I was tagged by Jeff Loiselle

  1. I once worked a full day serving beverages and hamburguers to a lot of people who were attending the agricultural exposition at La Rural. The issue was that out of every burger / soda we served, me and my friends would get one for ourselves. Not too productive.
  2. I can’t sleep without a fan. I’m not kidding. Even if it’s freezing, I would turn on the heat and still power on the fan. Just two days ago (I’m currently on vacations at a beach location south of BA), I had to buy a fan since the house I rent doesn’t have one.
  3. I spent almost two years helping out local Rock / Reggae bands, including Todos Tus Muertos & Actitud Maria Marta. I started there because I faxed the manager of AMM telling him if he wanted to build a website. I think this was 1996 or something. Needless to say it was an interesting experience.
  4. I don’t know how to drive, nor I can’t because of an eye condition. In reality, they would give me the license if I wanted to, but I firmly believe I would be a danger to other drivers (even in Argentina, where drivers suck big time.)
  5. I absolutely hate politicians. With strong passion. I mean, seriously, if you are a politician, get the hell out of my way. I would tap dance on your ass if you don’t.
  6. When I was on my last year of high school, I stopped going to class and instead would spend my time at the school bar. I ended up not going for over 7 months to class, so obviously I had to take a test in March for every subject (I think we had over 20), otherwise I wouldn’t graduate. Since I didn’t tell my parents what I did, they only thought I had to take just one test, for one class. I had to take them all *while* I was taking the exams to enter University. Somehow it all worked out, and I managed to pass those over 20 exams for high school and 4 university subjects in less than a month. Crazy.
  7. I absolutely love the new Guns N’ Roses album, Chinese Democracy. I haven’t bought a music CD since 1993, but I decided to buy this one. Totally worth it. If you don’t think so, you are clueless about rock.

Tagees:

  • Clauz: the coolest person to have near you
  • Tim Koschützki: someone who needs help figuring out how to play soccer and not cut his leg in the process
  • Chris Hartjes: one of the coolest canucks I’ve ever met. He gets grumpy though.
  • Martín Bavio: a fellow baker from argentina, who knows a thing or two about design
  • Mark Story: the other awesome canuck, this one is almost the opposite of the grumpy one: he’s strong with the force, since he never seems to loose his coolness
  • Lorena Iglesias: my fellow sister, a prolific writer (if you don’t know spanish, she’s worth the trouble to learn it)
  • Dennis Hennen: someone who I’ve been working with for a long time now, so I happen to know him quite well

Here are the MEME rules:

  • Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post — some random, some weird.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

    Mariano, I’ve been tagged already but I appreciate it. BTW, are you implying that somehow the Force is weak with me? NEVER underestimate the grumpy side of the Force!

    The Gn’R album is alright. I think it could have used some sweet Slash solos though.

    I also have a hard time ( read: nearly impossible ) falling asleep without a fan going, even when it is freezing cold.
