Got Tagged, I'm It?

I've been tagged by cvj of Placeholder and Manila Bay Watch. The rules, as copied from cvj, are as follows:

  • In the 8 facts about [name], you share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. At the end, you tag 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going. Each blogger must post these rules first.
  • Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • At the end of the post, a blogger needs to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Here goes:

  1. I am left-handed but I write with my right hand. This is because my aunt tied up my left hand behind my back when she was teaching me how to write. Karma struck when 2 out of her 3 kids turned out to be lefties and she wasn't successful in turning them to righties.
  2. I was rated a sharpshooter (a notch below expert) on the caliber .45 pistol and M16/M14 rifles. I always tell my friends I deliberately missed the higher qualification because "sharpshooter" sounds very much cooler than "expert". Hehehe. Yet, I have an aversion to guns.
  3. I once had mlq3 as a classmate in Kas 150 under Prof. Guerrero. But I'd trade that in an instant to switch places with a friend who was a classmate of then "dyosa ng CSSP" Reema Padilla.
  4. I believe I was drunk half the time I was in UP.
  5. Most people I know eat "tortang talong" with ketchup. Rare do I see people eat it with soy sauce which is the way I like it.
  6. I started getting a bit of a paunch when I stopped drinking. Safe to say then that it is no mini-beer belly.
  7. My smoking habit is so bad I still smoke even when I have a cough. Well, at least I've weaned myself away from two-pack a day (topak days?) habit. Syado magastos.
  8. I have a bad case of sleep paralysis, particularly hypnogogia (paralysis before falling asleep accompanied by hallucinations).

The part about tagging bloggers, I'll pass. Most of the bloggers I read have already been tagged and suffice it to say I have started blogging only recently and I have yet to increase my blog-reading above 10 blogs. Those who have not been tagged I do not personally know or have expressed aversion to tagging. So, am I perpetually IT? :D

What I enjoyed about this "tagging and be tagged" business is the 8 fact list about the tagger or the tagged.

Puts a face even if fuzzy to one's favourite blogger.
