seven things (or less)

You know those annoying emails people used to send out asking you a bunch of uninsightful questions about yourself that you had to complete and then pass on to someone? Well the concept has developed a new life in blogging called a "meme." The main difference is that a "meme" has a hip, Greek term so people do it voluntarily. In the past month, Val and Fr. Matthew have tagged me with two different memes--that is they have listed me as someone to complete the quiz at the end of the one they completed. I have been putting it off for reasons that will become appearant shortly. I'll start with the "Seven Things" meme Val threw at me.

Here goes...
