Five Things Meme - Tag, Who's Next?

This is the social media equivalent of a chain letter, but I actually like how the tagging is working on pushing this one forward and the people involved.

It's all based on "five things you wouldn't know about me." I got tagged by Anna Farmery over at The Engaging Brand.

OK - I'll play.

1. My first job in journalism was interviewing Tommy Lee from Motley Crue.

2. I was a certified self-defense instructor and have trained with many of the stars of the UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship. Including the Shamrocks and Gracies.

3. Contrary to popular belief, I actually like being alone (but only sometimes).

4. I was arrested once (but not convicted) after the police thought I was brandishing an automatic weapon (it was a water pistol). This happened during my high school graduation. The incident involved a small police chase and a lot of officers. Thankfully, nobody got hurt (and yes, I think we're ALL morons a couple of times during our high school days).

5. I don't drink alcohol (ever) - not even if it's cooked in food. And no, I am not an alcoholic, I am not allergic to it, and it's not against my religion (I just don't like the taste or smell of it).

That was liberating.

So now you know about my law enforcement kerfuffle (I hope you won't think any less of me).

I will now pass this on to David Jones, Michael Seaton, Ed Lee, Ken Schafer, Andy Nulman, and Kate Trgovac.
