Miller's Time (see blogroll right) is playing tag, and I am now "It." He's a Sac Town brotha, so I'm playing along.

Here are the rules:
Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things
about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird
things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6
people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that
says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

ONE- I listen to Imus in the Morning every day. I Tivo and VHS record every episode so I can listen to the ones I miss.

TWO - I used to own about $15,000 in comic books, until the 2005/2006 flood wiped most of them out. I still have most of my X-Men comics, and I'm less than a hundred from completing the whole series.

THREE - I have a crushed cornea in my left eye. The only way to repair it is with a corneal transplant, but I'm doing ok with the glasses so the transplant is a last resort.

FOUR - If not a teacher, my second choice for a career was as an air-traffic controller. If it is late at night and I'm typing up college papers, I'll tune into Live ATC (see links right) and listen to San Francisco, Phoenix, Las Vegas or Seattle. Those guys still amaze me.

FIVE - When my parents divorced, my favorite place to hang out was at the airport. Of course, I was only in elementary, but my grandmother never said no (she was an English teacher at Hayward High School), and would drive me over to SFO to watch the jumbo jets take off and land. Back then you could walk out to the gates with no fuss, and the north terminal had a perfect view of the planes landing.

SIX - I obsess over chips and salsa with margaritas. I'm seriously addicted to them. I'm to the point where I'm getting really, really picky about not only the margarita (Cuervo sucks, all of it), and the salsa (El Mexicano in Willits has the best), but now I'm getting picky with the chips too! I'm constantly on the lookout of the prefect dipper!

I tag the six people who take the challenge to get weird with me. I would mention direct names, but the last group I tagged started calling my classroom posing as Margaret Spellings.
