Janet tagged me for the seven random things meme, so here goes.

The rules:

Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself.

Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I tend not to tag, but anyone who wants to jump in should feel free to do so.

(And Joe takes up the challenge.)
