Five Things About Me

Crap...I've been tagged.

This sound like fun, so I'll give it a go. I thought it would take me longer to come up with these...but they came to me quite quickly.

1. I was in Martial Arts since grade 8, so thats about 17 years-ish, give or take. I have one black belt in Kuk Sool Won (not active anymore). I currently have a brown belt in Goju Ryu. Studying this stuff has always been fun, but with two kids, work and other responsibilities this is becoming a hard hobby for me to maintain.

2. I was in Air Cadets in high school and I actually wanted to be a fighter pilot. I changed my mind in my senior year after I saw the crappy conditions our military had at that time.

3. My favorite book is Phantoms by Dean Koontz. Don't ask me why, but the book just freaked me out and thrilled me at the same time.

4. I love Colorado Springs. My wife and I went down there in 97 or 98 and I just loved the variation of the countryside. I saw my first set of mountains on that trip...I must have stared at them for an hour. Wow. The people there are very nice, if not a bit nutty...and boy do they know how to cook a steak.

5. I love to golf. Almost too much if you ask my wife. Every year, a group of friends and I go down to Manitoulin Island for a yearly guys-only golf trip. It always seems to be sunny there and for some reason I always shoot about 95 for some strange reason (I usually a below 90 golfer).

Since I'm new to this stuff...not too many people to tag. Maybe Wilhelm2451 if he hasn't already been tagged for this.

D out.

Martial arts and cadet seem to go together but not with fantasy lover. :-) What strange and wonderous creatures we are.
