Hoc Est Qui Sumus

Scathach tagged me two months back

The rules in this game of tag are simple -- once you have been tagged, you must write a blog with ten weird, random things, little known facts or habits about yourself. At the end choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names. Consider yourself tagged, or not, of your own volition.

1. I used to be a pretty good clarinetist, but I had to stop playing because making the embouchure was screwing up my jaw formation.
2. The first computer program I ever wrote was a QBASIC program which calculated escape velocity for arbitrary planets using an equation from GURPS: Space. I used it exactly twice.
3. I won second place in Poet's Fantasy's Limerick contest - a check for $15 and two contributor's copies.
4-7ish. Literary Favorites - Novel: The Glass Bead Game, by Hermann Hesse; Short Story Collection: Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams, by Sylvia Plath; Short Story: "The Last Question", by Isaac Asimov; Poetry Collection: Practical Gods, by Carl Dennis; Poem: "Ars Poetica", by Archibald MacLeish.
8. I could not read until I was 7 - I fooled my teachers by memorizing what people read to me, and my parents and teachers did not catch on to this for two years.
9. I was a diehard Rush Limbaugh fan from the ages of 12-15. Then I got smarter.
10. When I was wee, I had a muscular-skeletal defect that had to be corrected by wearing braces on my legs. I was very, very wee, because I don't remember wearing these braces at all.
