8 Things You Didn't Know About Me

By Dennis D. McDonald

OK, in response to Luis Suarez’s “tagging game” challenge, here is my list of 8 things you didn’t know about me:

  1. My Confirmation name is Peter.
  2. My favorite firework is this one.
  3. I once built a phonograph out of spare parts.
  4. One of my children might be part Swedish.
  5. Sometimes when we are driving long distances I read out loud to my wife.
  6. Years ago I stopped working while on airplanes and started sleeping on them instead.
  7. Somewhere in my attic is a box of 80-column punch cards containing all my dissertation data.
  8. Being an independent consultant is fun but I would enjoy a long term gig!

Here are the rules of this tagging game:

  1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
  2. List EIGHT random facts about yourself.
  3. Tag EIGHT people at the end of your post and list their names.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

And here are the people I’m tagging:

  1. David Stephenson
  2. Paul Hyland
  3. Peter Turner
  4. D. Keith Casey
  5. Nik Kalyani
  6. Isaac Pigott
  7. Mark Scrimshire
  8. Wendy Harman
