Okay, not really things to hate, but facts you didn’t really want to know anyway. Thanks to Jake’s experiment on a blog chain letter, I am now going to tell you eight things you didn’t know about me (probably for a good reason).
- I’m sixth generation in the Bay Area.
My grandmother’s family came out pre-Gold Rush and both my grandmother and her mother were members of Native Daughters of the Golden West
- I’m an expert in Bible trivia.
While not a follower of any organized religion myself, I attended private school and had born-again Bible thumping parents for a period of about 10 years growing up.
- I have bought groceries with food stamps in my lifetime.
Not a great experience, but one that does build character.
- I am writing this entry from Park City, Utah where I have been skiing for a week.
I recommend Utah snow for anyone who is a “terminal intermediate” skier. I like to refer to the experience as “ego skiing.”
- I have a job for which I am unqualified, at least in the technical sense.
I’m probably not alone in that statement, but somehow I manage development teams while my formal training is in Business (Economics and Entrepreneurship). I had exactly one semester of anything even close to a computer class.
- I have never been to South America.
- I attended 10 different schools before completing K-12.
This is even more scary when you consider I skipped a grade and 7 of the 10 were in the same town.
- I have a severe “sense of direction” disability which I overcome by memorizing a painful amount of information and taking a lot of U-turns.
So there you have it, eight boring facts about Meg.
