6 Random Things Meme

I was just tagged by Wings over at Caffeinated Joe with this meme. Seems like a quick n' easy one, so here goes...

The Rules
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Write six random things about yourself.
4) Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

My Randomness

1) My favorite Match Game player is not Richard Dawson, but rather Charles Nelson Reilly
2) I took the GRE drunk on J├Ągermeister (and still did well enough to get into grad school)
3) I still have not seen The Godfather or Godfather II (but oddly enough, have seen part III)
4) I believe in ghosts
5) I have testified in court nearly every month for the past ten years
6) I have never sent a text message

The 6 I'm tagging:


  1. 1) I agree, and with Brett Somers, even better

    2) hahahaha

    3) I have seen 1 & 2 but never 3

    4) ;)

    5) Um... I am hoping you are an expert of some kind...

    6) I have and you ain't missing much

    Great list!

  2. My Match Game fav, Debralee Scott followed by Fannie Flagg. I always loved CNR though, and Brett.

  3. Boo!

    Did you think it was a ghost?

    As for Matchgame, CNR was the best. I always hated Dawson because he thought he was too cool.

  4. Mine's posted already!

  5. Flagg et al. are great, but you simply can't touch CN mother f-ing R! I'd like to hang that black velvet CNR painting above my mantle.

    AAAARRGHH! Zibbs scared the crap out of me. How embarrassing.

    Great list Booksteve! Appreciate it. As I said on your blog, I hate tagging people because you don't know if their irritated or pleased with the tag.

  6. I did the tag. The post is up.

  7. Hey Gil. These were cool ones. Thanks for the tag. I'll try to get it done as soon as I can. Have a great weekend. Cheers!

  8. Hi Gilligan. I popped over from Joe's at 70s-Child. So...if you can divulge, what do you testify about? Is it in open court or in chambers?

    Signed -
    Also a Testify-er

  9. I sure miss Charles Nelson Reilly.

  10. I'm with you on Match Game, boy I used to LOVE that show.

  11. Marissa - Open court - DNA evidence.

    K&S - CNR could pull off an ascot - that says something. If I wore an ascot I would be laughed at.

    Thanks to Joe and Keith.

    Retrohound - Thank goodness for the game show network - CNR is still alive in the Gilligan household.

  12. Heck it probably helped that you were drunk while taking the GRE....When I took it I really couldn't make much sense of it sober.
