Random Facts Meme

Well, I have been tagged in this by the big guy over at YMX.

Rules to play

1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
3. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

My 8 random factoids:

1. Like Marko my first job was illegal. I worked for a guy who owned some greenhouses and a farm. It was really tough work, but fun.

2. The month my wife was due to have our daughter, there was a tornado that ripped through the trailer park we were living in. Two years later, when she was pregnant with our son, she was in OK and they were surrounded with tornado sightings. Both times everyone was safe.

3. I had a 1981 ‘Vette as my first car. I got it when I turned 16 and it was a manual transmission. The day after getting it, I stalled it our as I was leaving a parking lot and kept stalling it out. Frustrated I got out and called my dad and told him to come pick me up. BTW, it was a Chevette.

4. My wife and I have known each other our whole lives, but did not start dating until 1994. But we did go to her high school prom together. It is really fun to see videos of us in the children’s choir sitting next to one another.

5. I am ashamed to admit this, but I really liked the Newlyweds show.

6. My wife and I both do not like scary movies and once while watching Signs, which wasn’t really that scary, we were sitting on opposite ends of the couch and Kimmy said, “Don’t sit so far away come hold me, I am scared.” To which I replied, “Come hold me, I’m scared.”

7. Once when I was cutting my grandma’s grass, two guys pulled up in a car and asked if I wanted any grass and I said that I already had a big bag of it.

8. My favorite movie of all time is Somewhere In Time and Kimmy and I used the music in our wedding.
