Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{December 2, 2008}   Six Things Meme

Apparently it’s meme week here on NTBTWK.  First Raul tagged me with a photo meme, and now Rebecca hit me with the six things meme.

First, da rules of da game:

1. Link to the person who tagged me. (That would be Rebecca)
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. (Actually, if they’re regular readers of your blog, then #4 should do the trick.)
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

OK, now I have to write six random things.  Crap.   Hmmm… what can I tell you that I haven’t told y’all before?

  1. I was born with a dislocated hip (a.ka. congenital hip dysplasia).  As a baby I underwent surgery, was in traction and then had to be in a half-body cast.  My maternal grandmother had the same thing, but they didn’t know how to fix it when she was a baby, she always walked with a limp.  Thanks to modern medicine, I’m 100% fine in the hip department.
  2. Tonight for dinner I made a recipe that I got from a virtual stranger on Twitter.  I call it my Twitterecipe.
  3. I would love love love to have my own cooking show.
  4. I’m currently obsessed with the goings on in the federal government and the possibility of a Liberal-NDP coalition government.  I’m checking the CBC and CTV news websites even more than usual, have been watching CSPAN and am delighted that so many Canadians (myself included) are learning about how the Parliament works (No folks, you don’t elect a Prime Minister in Canada – you elect 308 members of the House of Commons and they get to decide who will be the P.M.!)
  5. It looks like I get to teach a course at Simon Fraser University1 next term!  I’m still waiting for my contract, but I’ve been offered an SFU course to teach.  I’ve never taught at SFU before, but I’ve only heard wonderful things about the place from everyone I’ve me that has gone there, so I’m pretty happy about that.

Now I have to tag six people, eh?  Well, I’ll go with the same five people who I tagged for the Five Things Meme2, plus Tod (who is totally dying to be memed).

1Well, technically it’s not at SFU as it is a distance ed course, so I’ll be teaching it from my living room rather than up on Burnaby Mountain. But it’s an SFU course nonetheless.
2Because I can just copy and paste those and I really am that lazy.

Congratulations on the SFU job! That totally rocks!

I, too, am enjoying the mayhem here in the O-town. I recommend that you add the Globe and Mail website to your list – they are all sorts of awesome. I also really like Paul Wells’s blog (in Maclean’s and available on the website), though Adam Radwanski’s on the globe site is also excellent.

Did any of the other Snow kids have the same congenital issue? I have always wondered that. And how is your Granny doing?



Beth says:

Well, since it way my maternal grandmother that had it and the Snows are my dad’s side of the family, no. But no one else on my mom’s side of the family had it either. Just me, the one who was named after my maternal grandmother. So perhaps it’s not genetic, but rather passed down through the name. 😉 (Of course, I’m also named after my dad’s mom, which just confuses the whole thing even more)



Sarah says:

So dumb…sorry, I was rushed when I posted that and missed the “maternal” adjective. And I KNEW it was Grandma Griffin…I am just silly. It is really interesting that none of the other kids had it, though.

Also – after recommending Paul Well’s blog on Maclean’s, I remembered that he is travelling for the next few weeks, so not blogging. Which is too bad; he’s missing all the fun.

To conclude – epic commenting FAIL.



Beth says:

Hee hee. That’s OK, you can blame it on baby brain!
