Tag, You're It!

Small Failures is honored to be tagged by Anne at The Golden Pencil, a wonderful resource for freelance writers. It's a "5 Things Most People Don't Know About Me" meme goin' 'round that at first didn't seem related to me over here. But if there's one thing I know for sure, it's that everything is related. So here we go:
  1. I have a Buddhist bent. I'm not disciplined enough to call myself a Buddhist, but those Noble Truths ring a bell.
  2. I was kicked out of summer camp as a kid for fighting. I didn't learn my humility lessons until much later, but it did end me up at another camp (no longer operating) that got me hooked on camping, farming, and generally interacting with the natural world.
  3. I have rheumatoid arthritis. I take lots of pharmaceuticals for this, which is a pretty horrifying industry. My goal over the next couple of years is to reduce my meds where possible in exchange for accupunture, yoga and other alternative treatments.
  4. I was a honky tonk DJ. As a result, I have saved the life of over 600—maybe 800?—vinyl records that otherwise would have disappeared into landfills. (Okay, this may be a stretch.)
  5. My bartending days left me with a penchant for Manhattans. I plan to feature some great organic booze on this site, so check back soon.
Perhaps not the most interesting collection of factoids, but there ya go. Tag, you're it:
  1. Jeopopolis: Inspiration in art form.
  2. Ideal Bite: Get green tips by email!
  3. Groovy Green: A team of folks parsing the world of green for the rest of us.
  4. Sustainablog: A sane look at the broader issues.
  5. Ai Ai Gasa: Brooklyn boutique featuring cool-ass goods made lovingly from hand.
Please, if I tagged you and you're not interested in playing this little game, fear not. This is just a good excuse for me to share some of the links I dig.

Thanks for the nod, Jessie! I'm not so good about doing these tagging things, but I'll definitely keep you in mind for a "Sustainable Blogosphere" link (and I'll get you up quickly on the Green Blogosphere Squidoo lens). I like what you've got planned here...:-)

Thanks, Jeff! You'll be going up on my permanent link list as soon as I get my act together (still working on the bells and whistles for the site).

Take care,
