7 things you didn’t know about me

December 19, 2007

Memetime! Chris tagged me with this one. I did these really fast…first things that popped into my head:

(1) I play drums (at least, I used to before trying to finish a PhD).

(2) I ski, both alpine and telemark style (at least, I used to before trying to finish a PhD).

(3) I was born in the state of Ohio, but barely remember living there.

(4) My middle name is my dad’s first name.

(5) Even though it’s completely impractical and a waste of money/resources, I would love to have a fast sports car someday.

(6) I’m fairly useless and uncomfortable when it comes to tools and fixing things around the house (i.e., I am very unhandy).

(7) I had ceviche last night.


I tag Ain’t From Around Here, ChrisS, and Kate.

    Interesting. Could you elaborate on the ceviche one? :D I’m curious about how similar it is from our ceviche.

    I had it at a Peruvian-Californian restaurant here in San Francisco …we had one that was called more “traditional”, which was tuna marinated in citrus, with some chopped up peppers…and then a second type, that was halibut with lime and a tiny bit of soy sauce … it was really good, but I’ve never had the real deal in Peru so I can’t say how the same/different it is.

    These meme things are addictive, aren’t they? Just done one myself….

    So (3) you don’t have any childhood memories, calling you back? Any fragments & impressions from back then….?

    Ceviche here is usually almost any type of fish marinated in lemon juice (citrus? same thing?) with chopped up onions and chili, usually sided with sweet potatoes and/or yuca (cassava, not yucca) and/or corn. No pepper or soy sauce, though I’d love to try those styles some day.

    I just noticed wikipedia explains it better. OK now, this whole ceviche thing just made me want to go and get some.

    Miguel…yeah, California has a tendency to try and “fuse” styles of food with others, hence the soy sauce with ceviche…sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

    Mikeachim…I have a few images from that young, but nothing too concrete…I remember burning my hand on the stove when I was about 3 yrs old.
