Memed: Now It’s My Turn to Dance!

December 26, 2006 at 9:11 pm 1 comment

Have you been caught offguard with a meme challenge? I’ve watched it floating around the blog world for some time, and have managed to evade the “tap on the shoulder” indicating that it’s my turn to dance.  But MaryJo of Fly Away Cafe tagged me today and so I’ll just get right to it — I have to reveal 5 things about myself that most people do not know. I think I have far less interesting things to tell than MaryJo who’s actually been on televison and won a beauty contest! So here’s my list. (It’s a digression from my normal posts, but my next one on Toronto will be published soon.)

  1. I can take shorthand — real Gregg Shorthand — used to do 140 wpm. Still use it when doing interviews or taking notes at a meeting.shorthand.JPG
  2. I’d like to take a river cruise in Europe.
  3. I am still best friends with Charyl, one of my best friends from high school — we rediscovered each other at a class reunion some years ago — and found that we were living in the same metro area at least 100 miles away from where we grew up.
  4. My given first name is not Tish or Trish or Patricia, but Letitia, from which Tish is derived. It has no cultural or ethnic significance, except in Latin (ancient Latin), it means joy.
  5. Early in my career, after 4 rounds of interviews for a new PR position at the Community Blood Center in Appleton, I called the Center’s director to tell her to withdraw my name from the pool. (I really couldn’t stand the sight of blood!) She, in turn, told me that she wished I wouldn’t do that because they had selected me from the finalists. I only agreed to take the job if it could be on a trial basis and it turned out to be the most fulfilling position I’ve ever held. I even ended up learning how to draw blood samples for the pre-donation hemoglobin test! Who’d of thought? Not me.

So that’ my story. Now it’s another blogger’s turn to feel that “tap on the shoulder.”

    It’s nice to get to know you a little bit better, Tish. I’m haven’t been a big meme fan in the past, but it does tell us a little more about our favorite bloggers, don’t you think.

    I’ll remember these litte details as I continue to read your posts.
