So, I got tagged by Kevin just before the holidays. We all know how it goes – I reveal five things about myself and then tag five more people to do the same.
1: I grew up in New Jersey, but when people ask me where I’m from, I say Philadelphia. In my defense, my hometown is only 25 miles from the city and I did go to school and work in the city for most of my adult life. I associate myself more with Philly than Jersey. I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina now. It feels like home, but I’ll never be “from here”.
2: I steal pint glasses from bars. Not exactly a felony, but I do feel a little guilty every time I look at the 50-plus collection I have amassed.
3: My first real job was at IKEA. I worked in the North American HQ as a designer/art director for six years before going back to school. I worked with more than a few Swedes and travelled to Sweden a bit, leaving me with a fondness for Swedish culture.
4: I have never, not once in my life, eaten an olive.
5: I love squirrels. Outside the window of my home office, I have two squirrel feeders for my own amusement. This may explain why I don’t post to my blog more often.
I hereby tag these five people…
Mr. Huntington at Adliterate (Has he not yet been tagged?)
Graham Furlong at Work hard + Be nice to people
Amber Finlay at Big Secret Pizza Party
Graeme “Doug” Douglas at Planning for Fun
Chris Ray (I’m calling you out, punk. Get that blog up and running.)
