8 Random Facts You Probably Don't Know About Me

I've been tagged by Cherie Burbach for the Random 8 Meme.

The Rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.

My Random 8:
  • I know how to do ecclesiastical embroidery.
  • My first celebrity crush was on Ray Walston as "My Favorite Martian."
  • I once wrote a "theme and variations" for pipe organ that was actually performed publically, even though it was too hard for me to play myself cause I couldn't do the feet.
  • One of my fondest childhood memories is of when my family built a hot air balloon and launched it successfully 13 times before getting it stuck in a tree.
  • I've been over Niagara Falls in a helicopter (flying, not barrel-style).
  • I'm saving to buy my next car in 2009 and it will be a 2007 copper-colored Chevy Cobalt.
  • I have appeared on Quebec radio and television speaking in French.
  • My unfulfilled dream is to play drums in a rock band.

Very interesting little known tidbits. What is ecclesiastical embroidery?

I liked My Favorite Martin, but it was Bixby that caught my eye as a ten year old! :)

Hi Yvonne, Bill Bixby wasn't bad either...I guess I've just always gone for aliens! :-)

You know the fancy "stoles" that priests and ministers wear draped around their necks during the worship service, with symbols embroidered on them? That's it. There are certain styles of embroidery that work best for this application, believe it or not.
