James McGrath, fellow Dunnite and the biblioblogger king of the hill for the month of October, professor of religion at Butler University, has tagged me with a meme. Don't ask me what it memes. I'm just supposed to post the rules of the meme:
1. Link to the person who tagged you (check, see above).
2. Post the rules on your blog (making this line a post within a post).
3. Write six random things about yourself (see below).
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them (further below).
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog (I assume a comment from James will mysteriously appear below at some point).
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up (if it ever is).
1. I'm an email-holic. I sometimes check my email and post comments on blogs while I'm teaching class (usually when students are taking a quiz). Sometimes I go to the bathroom to check my email when guests are over. Beware.
2. I wasn't a morning person until I had children. Now I am an omnitemporal person. I was up before 4 this morning and its almost midnight now.
3. I've lived 15 years of my life in Indiana, 15 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 6 in Kentucky, 3 in England, 3 in South Carolina, 5 months in Tübingen, Germany, and 2 months in Freetown, Sierra Leone. I'm 25 years old.
4. I once dressed up as the beheaded John the Baptist for Halloween when I was at seminary. I also dressed up in tights and a cape as Ichthusman for Ichthus in Wilmore, Kentucky in the early 90's.
5. I broke my middle finger playing right field in seminary. Then held up a car wash sign for my church on the side of the road with a splint on the finger for all to see. I also broke my elbow here at IWU playing intramural basketball before they had put down the flooring in the gym. I ran straight into the wall at full speed. I once gave myself a black eye rapping up a vacuum cord, and poked my eye in college with a candle sitting down at a dining room table for breakfast.
6. When I went through nerd mid-life crisis I carried a college physics book around in my car to relearn things I learned in high school and when I was a chemistry major.
So to pass the joy along, I tag Jared at Antiquitopia, Kris at Throughpainteddeserts, Angie at Angie's Point, Mike at ReclinerRamblings, Nathan at Crawford's Corner, and Adam at all the small things.
I know, I know, just what you all needed...
