Tagalicious by Sarah

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. Sarah was my tagger.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

5. If you don't have 7 blog friends, or if someone else already took dibs, then tag some unsuspecting strangers.

Ok.... here goes...

1. I became an Eagle Scout at 15. Not that I really wanted to be in Scouts, but it was a family thing to do, so I just went along for the ride. My brother, also a Rhodes scholar, is one too. (He's the one with the doctorate in archaeology who teaches in Singapore and makes documentaries with a baby on the way... and room for a pony).

2. In high school, I earned money by subbing as an organist/pianist/soloist for local churches.

3. I've been to 50 states. Hit the 50th (Hawaii) when I was 15. Seems like it was a monumental year, huh?

4. I have dual citizenship. US & Ireland. Again... 15...

5. I am the only person in my entire family with blue eyes. My father and brothers are all hazel. My mother has grey.

6. I once wrote a letter to the Pope when I was in fourth grade. I got a response from the US office of the Vatican when I was in fifth grade. I still have the letter, though I'll admit I was disappointed that John Paul II couldn't find the time to write a personal letter to an impressionable, parochial 10 year old. And you wonder why I fell out with the Catholic Church... (However, nuns are still my among my all-time favorite people).

7. Here's chalking one up to my undeserved sense of vanity: Although I've pretty much accepted it, there is still a part of me that resents the fact that I'm short.

Aaaaand, tag you're it:

1. Roxie, who should be the next Rosalind Russell over at Stage Left, House Right.
2. The delightful author and playwright Marc Acito fills up on the banquet of life with The Gospel According to Marc.
3. The madcap newcomer/theatre enthusiast Dorian presenting In the Dorian Mode in Nova Scotia.
4. Matt over at You're Welcs: The Ramblings of Matty B, documenting his undergrad theatre studies in the Midwest.
5. Kari, our own Tina Fey, keeping us amused with her wit and style at Persistent Cookie.
6. So deadpan he could serve as Elaine Stritch's standby for At Liberty: Miles at What Fresh Hell Is This?
7. Ken Davenport, theatre producer extraordinaire at The Producer's Perspective.
