@kathrynaustin tagged me and was humbled to think that someone thought to thank me. She doesn't tweet as much as others do AND when she does it's always of top notch quality. I have no other option than to forward her links, posts or insights ;)
So, I guess I'm supposed to tell you seven things that you don't know about me (this could get scary). In no particular order:
I'm very particular
So particular I can't stand to see water spots on chrome faucets and religiously clean them to a shine. It even extends to other people's places (OPP, ya you know me). I will find myself cleaning faucets that don't belong to me and the satisfaction that comes from it is very soothing ;)
I meditate in a number of ways
Washing dishes, vacuuming and folding clothing are my regular theraputic remedies that I embark upon to maintain balance in my life. Oh ya, I stretch connective tissue and do breath of fire (which is very different from dragon breath). I crave for Om Sweet Om and burn incense to feed the gods.
I'm a collector of fine things
I collect things like shoes, jackets, cuff links, scarves, music and shoes ;)
I talk a lot
I have accepted the fact that I enjoy hearing myself talk and that I'm sure if you've followed me or read things I write... you'd notice ;)
I like to help out, a lot
Can't stop winking or retweeting, there is help for people like me. One day I will seek it out, just not now.
I always wanted to build things
Deep down I always wanted to be an architect. I've designed homes and one restaurant for myself. Would love the opportunity to go to Italy to study Architecture and learn how to make shoes from that old cat named Gieuseppe across from the butcher shop ;)
I need to learn to enjoy the spotlight
I can shine my light with the best of them, yet something comes over me and I can't bring myself to share my skills or talents with the rest of the world. I used to be a concert promoter and enjoyed it because I was the one making it happen, not the one up on stage pulling in all the attention. Well, I'm stepping out of the shadows and on to the stage... I am Khayyam, I'm here all week, try the Green Eggs and Ham, Khayyam I am.
Tag, you're it. I loved that game when I was a kid and when I was recently tagged and I was "it", I jumped at the chance to reach out and tag some others. There no challenge in tagging thos that are easy to tag, so I took it upon myself to tag the ones that are a bit more elusive and have some skills to thrill.
@adbert - started following me this past week and this IT Manager, System Analyst, Web developer and soon to be blogger lends his retweeting weaponry without hesitation and even asked me how I was... stellar chap.
@keryp - web designer, graphic artist, flash animator, science fiction reader, job hunter, supermom, perpetual student, environmentalist, electronica lover supports me, actually cares and it shows with every tweet.
@mechanis - stumbled upon this mix-media and cultural artist and loved the way he layed out his site. It's off the beaten path, symbols mixed with letters and numbers, chaotic organization - a new approach to art and media.
@hookersforjesus - X-Hooker Annie Lobert has a non-profit organization that reaches out to sex workers called HOOKERS FOR JESUS!!! The name says it all and I'd love to know more about do-gooder doing good. Well done.
@zappos - Tony's the CEO, what more can you say?! Best shoe company around that feeds my soul's soles. I ask him a question and he answers me back. The frickin CEO. Now that's a man of the people.
@huddydesign - She's a freelancer, business owner, flash designer, developer, triathlete, student and weirdo. Can't wait to watch her blossom into the power house flasher that I know her to be, just need to buy her a khaki trenchcoat and she's set.
@megfowler - Dubious at best. She writes well, strangely and has an ecclectic assortment of musical expressions. Did I mention she's awesome?! ;)
*Honorable mention - was tagged previously by @DamienBasile
@abartelby - Designer. Writer. Blogger. New Yorker. Obstinately cross-referential. Of cryptic interconnective syntax. Nonlinear. Discontinuous. Collage-like. An assemblage. He hearts me in a platonic way ;)
That's my list... I've checked it twice. Now comes a test to see who's been naughty or nice.
Here are the rules I followed, stolen from @damienbasile and passed on by @lisahoffmann :
Link your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
- Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
- Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
- Let them know they’ve been tagged
