Tagged For the First Time

I have been tagged by Dymphna of the Gates of Vienna. And here are the rules.

1. Let others know who tagged you.

2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.

3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.

4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

pffft.... like Michelle Malkin or any of the other famous bloggers below would bother responding to an email... I agree with Dymphna that Technorati works fine.

Anyway here are 8 random facts about myself:
  • I grew up in Houston, Texas and have now lived and worked overseas in Southeast Asia for the last twenty years.
  • I once paid US20 for a jar of Pace Picante Sauce - "Medium" if you were wondering
  • After many years of working the freight forwarding business - I woke up one day and realized I hated my job - unfortunately I was overseas at the time
  • I'm soon going to be opening Malaysia's and as far as I know Southeast Asia's first REAL Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurant and I still need help sourcing some decor items and stuff from the States. *hint*
  • I've speak fairly fluent Indonesian and Malay
  • I've actually met face to face and had dinner with members of Al Qaeda before and after 911
  • I'm often deeply frustrated at America's overall naiveté concerning many of the issues we face overseas
  • I'd like to one day write a book on my experiences overseas and am still looking for a talented ghost-writer to help out
  • I like cheese and the cheese from Australia sucks
And now for the most difficult part, the tagging of eight other people ~ here are some blogs or sites that I visit on a regular basis

Belmont Club - (I'm still a big fan even though he banished me from his exclusive blogroll)

Cinnamon Stillwell - (Conservative in the Middle of a Hippie Drum Ring)

Iowahawk - (He doesn't realize what a big fan I am)

Dr. Sanity - (Conservative Female Rocket Scientist ILTF)

Conservative Beach Girl - (Photos Please)

Mark Steyn - (I can think of a thousand reasons to tag him and they are all right on the tip of my tongue)

Sinocidal - (One of the few bloggers I met - Super Funny American Conservative in China)

Blogs of War - (My Diet Dr. Pepper Supply is running low)


  1. Thanks for the tag. The thing is, I don't want everyone to know eight things about me they don't already know! But you'll be sure to remain on my "exclusive blogroll" ;-)

  2. I certainly didn't banish you on purpose. That danged blogger template, I must have overwritten your line in the blogroll.
