7 Things

Steven Lau tagged me with the 7 things meme. He feels I don’t blog about myself enough and that is probably true. But then, who in their right mind wants to know about me? Benjamin thinks it’s important for people to know I’m not so one dimensional :)

The Rules

  • Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged.

The Things

  1. I wanted to build spaceships when I grew up. I have Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering degrees to prove it. But alas, the Wall came down and defense contracts dried up. So I started looking for work using my hobby skills.
  2. I worked at Enron. Yes, that Enron. It was an amazing journey through Corporate America and I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. Of course, I knew they were selling lies and my 401k was safe. The stories I could tell…
  3. I worked on a project that used MSHTML (embedded IE) very heavily. We did some amazing things using MSHTML. Much of this blog (pre-2007) was about the subject.
  4. I married my wife in Las Vegas at the Little Church of the West.
  5. I always wanted to learn to play guitar. Now I have RockBand
  6. I am jealous of people who are multi-lingual.
  7. I never ate many fruits or vegetables, but I now find myself forced to set a good example for my two daughters.

Here I will break the rules. I was only doing this for the extra dimensions. I finally get to use the “Personal” tag!
