I've been tagged ... again

This time by Rhymes With Right.

Eight Random Facts About Hube:

  • 1. The sickest I've ever been was when I got food poisoning in Costa Rica in 1986. I was laid up in a hospital for two days, and then the rest of that week. I lost 12 lbs. at a time when I barely weighed 155 lbs. (and I'm -- and was -- 6'3").

  • 2. I once played baritone sax in a jazz band that toured Europe for three weeks.

  • 3. Speaking of which, I once earned "Best Woodwind Soloist Award" at a jazz festival. I played tenor sax then.

  • 4. The only American president I ever saw in person was Gerald Ford. (He gave a speech at the University of Delaware in the late 80s.)

  • 5. My first car was a 1969 Chrysler New Yorker. It could hold eight people comfortably!

  • 6. My coolest car was a white 1972 Datsun 240-Z, completely restored. My wife can't drive a stick, and then we had our daughter, so I had to sell it. ARGH!

  • 7. The first song I ever learned when I learned to play bass was Duran Duran's "Planet Earth."

  • 8. My interest in politics was sparked by my 11th grade International Relations and 12th grade Poli. Sci. teacher (one and the same person).

I'm wary of "tagging" anyone; feel free to pick up on this meme if you so desire!

The 240-Z was pretty damn nice... didn't have the "braces" bumper the 280-Z did, which was really my only beef with that particular model. Shame you had to get rid of it, though.
