Swiped from [profile] tenwii since she doesn't tag people, so I'll tag myself..

1 . Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people.

1) I really like board and card games, but I rarely get the chance to play them.

2) When I was 10 I changed my name to Carri.  I reverted to Kerry when I got my first checking account (at 14 maybe?).

3) For some reason lately I can't seem to hit the "shift" key and the "i" key simultaneously and its bugging me.

4) I will never refuse an offer of Thai food.

5) The flowers on my desk today smell lovely.

6) I am allergic to fresh tomatoes and any soap other than Ivory.

7) Its cherry season!! IMO cherry season should last all year.

8) The internet just mostly makes me feel inarticulate.

8.5) I am not going to tag anyone, pass it on if you want to.

[personal profile] stonebender picked some duplicates, but I will try to add something new to them.  Comment to this post and I will pick seven items from your LJ interest list for you to explain in your journal.

  • Aaron Sorkin - Producer , creator and head writer for Sports Night, The West Wing (Seasons 1-3) and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.  He writes fast paced intelligent dialogue that I always enjoy.  He has some unknown bias against the sport of cricket, which I would like to find out about someday.
  • castles - I used to be a "collector" of castles, and visited many throughout the UK and France.  I still enjoy visiting them for the romanticism that they inspire in me, but I have lately been visiting earlier civilizations.
  • dragons - I prefer the dragons of McCaffrey over most other fictional dragons.  Who wouldn't want their own personal pet and companion with the added benefit of instant long distance transportation?
  • gleaning - Gleaning is the act of recovering unharvested or leftover food and other items.  It can be a challenge sometimes as it usually involves picking up a large amount of food at one time and then having to prepare and store it or process it somehow.  I like gleaning because I like fresh food (especially fruit) and hate to see it go to waste.  The challenge of finding or creating new recipes also appeals to me.
  • Nik Kershaw - Was an '80's Brit Pop performer.  He writes his own songs, and often marries his always intriguing lyrics to interesting sounds.  He is still recording music, samples of which are playing at his website.  The only songs of his which you may have heard in the US on popular radio are "Wouldn't It Be Good" or possibly "The Riddle".
  • pmc -Stands for Precious Metal Clay a brand name of silver clay which I use in my class to make fine silver jewelry.  It was developed in the 1990's by Dr.  Morikawa of the Mitsubishi Materials Corp. as a way of allowing jewelry makers to adopt the technique of pottery making.  It is particles of fine silver suspended in a organic clay which burns off when the piece is fired, leaving behind fine silver.
  • silver - My mother was Italian and I have inherited her olive skin tones.  Because of this, I cannot wear gold.  Gold next to my skin seems to add a greenish glow which I find unattractive.  Therefore, silver is my precious metal of choice.
