Pam over at Ramblings tagged me with this weird-thing, as if I'm not weird enough as it is.
Here are the Rules: Each player (weirdo) of this game lists six (6) weird things about themselves by creating a post on their blog. Pictures may be used for documentation. On the post, state these rules and then tag six (6) other weirdos by listing their names on your post. Leave a comment at their place that says, "You have been tagged. Please go to my blog for further instructions."
I combined this tag with a few questions that I have been asked along the way since I started blogging.
Weird Fact #1: I have had my head shaved.
Weird Fact #2: I have met a fellow blogger. (aka: Ladybug)
Weird Fact #3: The HansMan and I had a weird feeling seeing ourselves on a post card.
Weird Fact #4: Cruella and I are alike in a least one way. We both like dogs. (Yes, this is my hair.)
Weird Fact #5:
I have had some very weird "hair-do's." (See #1 and #4)
Weird Fact #6 (to answer some questions that have come along the way):
A) What is your profession? I am a retired teacher (25 years), and my favorite students were the middle school kiddos. I absolutely loved working with students in that age group. I used the philosophy of Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences in my curriculum which worked well with my Multiple Personalities.
B) Why do you call yourself Swampwitch? It has to do with a product that I manufacture for evaporative coolers, better known as swamp coolers, in arid climates. Some of you clever bloggers have done a scavenger hunt and found the web-site. The guys at the office gave me that name.
C) How many kids do you really have? Together, we really have six (6)...goes with today's theme of six (6). I have two daughters from a previous marriage and the HansMan has two daughters and two sons from a previous marriage. We live in different time zones...figuratively and literally speaking. We have eight (8) grandchildren ranging in ages from 18 years to 9 days old.
D) Are you really dyslexic? Well, I'm something that has to do with my "brian" and my "ginfers" not working well tohetger. With me so far? Some days it's better/worse than other days. I constantly confuse b's, d's, q's, and p's, transpose numbers, transpose syllables, etc. Word Verification Boxes are a nightmare for me. Sometimes, it takes four tries to get it right. I spend a lot of time roofpreading and correcting my comments and my posts.
E) In your title, Anecdotes, Antidotes, and "Anodes" what is an Anode? See "B" above and click on this link.
F) Why do you call your musings "moldy?" My product fights mold, and I like alliteration, so it fit.
I've been away from reading Blogs (Globs in my world) for awhile, so you may have already done this, and I just missed your post. If so, humor me and just link us to that post. Those listed here, consider yourself Weird and Tagged:
I know, I know...that's more than six (6) but who said I could count? I plan to list more to be tagged in a few days...just ran out of time doing all the links.
