I've been Tagged!

I was tagged by Lisa, from HR Thoughts. I’m honored.

Here’s the rules:

  • Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post - some random, some weird.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they have been tagged.
As someone who’s not very comfortable with personal disclosure, this was a challenge for me, so here goes:

1. I used to be a bartender- way back when. I learned how to hustle, listen, juggle lemons, and light a match with one hand. Those were the days, when there were only two kinds of martinis – vodka and gin. And blenders were for sissies
2. My first real job out of college: working at a public utility in a call center. College didn’t prepare me for that – it was white collar hell
3. I’ve been married for 23 years, and fall in love over and over every year
4. I’d like to live on a lake or near the ocean some day
5. I once jumped out of an airplane. They say I dog paddled until my chute opened. My friend broke her leg when she hit a tree (“so that’s what those toggle thingies were for”)
6. I still watch American Idol
7. Favorite food: home-made (see #3) chocolate chip cookies

Here’s the seven bloggers I’m tagging - which includes a few you may not have seen before, so please check them out:
1. Scott Eblin at The Next Level
2. Eric Boehme at The Blogging Boss
3. Art Petty, at Art Petty on Management
4. Rick, at Flip Chart Fairy Tales
