I’ve already done a Meme for Active Rain and wasn’t planning to write another one. However, I’ve decided to write this Meme because of the recent launch of my Grand Rapids Real Estate Musings blog. Since, this is a cross between a blog carnival (where you visit a number of different blogs ) and a traditional meme…perhaps it could be called a “carnimeme.”
The specific purpose of this Meme is to encourage folks to visit some outstanding bloggers who are on the Active Rain Network and who maintain an additional blog. As the network prepares to launch private blogs as an upgraded option for the members, this has provided an opportunity to see how different individuals manage more than one blog.
The rules are: Give 7 interesting details and Tag at least 2 other people.
So, without further audu…here’s my CarniMeme post!
My Days as “A Star”
In highschool, I “starred” in a Christmas Special. It was a one hour program by a British producer which featured a children’s choir and skits. I sang and narrated. It was shown on National TV in Nigeria.
The Best Vacation….
My most interesting vacation was a trip to West Germany. We participated in a wedding, a student demonstration, visited a castle, toured a bread museum, drove through the countryside and enjoyed great German cooking.
Education With the “United Nations” or something like that…
I went to an International School. There were students from over 64 different nations. Everyone different…and that model of tolerance and acceptance for others has continued to guide and inspire my life.
In college at the University of Wisconsin, I ran for public office…and won. I served a year as a Student Senator and also won a coveted seat on the Student Budget Committee which at the time controlled the 2nd largest student budget in the United States.
I love gourmet cooking…as long as I don’t have to do the clean-up.
Track and Field Whiz Kid…
In highschool, at one time, I held the school records for the long jump, 100 meters, 200 meters and had a team record for the 4 X 100 meter race. I participated in national level competition in highschool during all four years of my highschool education.
Flying Faster than a Speeding Bullet…
I have actually had the thrill of flying on the Concord…you know, the plane that could fly at mach2 (twice the speed of sound) It was an extraordinary experience to be flying so high and so fast that you could look out the window and see the curvature of the earth.
Now, this was the hardest part of the assignment…figuring out who else to tag. It might be helpful to have a group for this in the future. So here are the individuals I am tagging:
Maureen McCabe for her: http://ColumbusBestBlog.com
Chris Elizabeth Griffin for her: http://lifeinbonitasprings.com/
