Gina tagged me for the 8 Random Things About Myself thingy, so here's more than you ever wanted to know about the guy behind the blog. I never know who has been tagged and who hasn't, so if you haven't...and "if you feel led," then consider yourself "It."
I teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at a community college. My students actually appreciate me and they want to learn. I will never teach Americans, or at least not any younger than 40. (So by that criteria, I'm ineligible to teach myself. Hmmmm.)
I am a UNC grad and a huge Tar Heels fan. This is me (circa 1988) in my usual football Saturday attire. (I'm the lunatic on the right.)
I never want to live in a house younger than I am.
I read all the time.
I'm 5' 6", weigh 135 pounds, and played defensive end for my high school football team. (Don't be too impressed--it was a really small school.)
I never kill spiders or crickets in the house. I catch them and put them outside.
Whenever I put gas in my car, I reset the trip odometer and mentally calculate my gas mileage. I have no idea why I do this.
People say that I have the same personality as my cat, Andy. (I don't think they mean it as a compliment!)
