I've been tagged!

By
Real Estate Agent with Beach & Luxury Realty, Inc.

The owner/president of my company, known as BLRGuy, has so thoughtfully tagged me! It is actually fun to tell a little about oneself that others don't know, so a big thank you to him!

Here are 5 things you did not know about me, but now you do...

Born in Arlington, VA, only because the hospital in Washington D.C. where my grandfather, father and uncle were born had closed down it's maternity ward, thus preventing me from being a 3rd generation born in our nations capital, which greatly disappointed my grandfather. 

Raised a yankee in Connecticut, where I still have family.  It's no wonder I have internal conflicts...born in the South & raised in the North! 

I grew up on the ski slopes in New England and actually skied with Suzy Chaffee, a former Olympic skier. For those that don't remember her or don't know her, she was better known as Suzy Chapstick, for the product she endorsed.

I have a Criminal Justice degree and a Paralegal degree. The latter degree is helpful in real estate...but still have not figured out how to use the first degree in this career. Maybe someone can shed a little light on this.

Have traveled abroad and been to France, Italy, England & Scotland. Loved them all.

Now, I get to tag a few fine people...what fun!

I knew most of this already, but do you remember the tennis match between Billy Jean King and Bobby Riggs?  I watched that.  Who's showing their age now?

Scotland huh?  My European county of choice is Ireland.  I know that it sounds absolutly insane, but I studied it in college at a terrorism course (this was prior to the US having any involvement with terrorism).  Fun facts, thanks for sharing!

Rae...while I didn't watch it, I do remember it! If I remember, didn't they play around with the court size, so it wasn't exactly an even match...though Billy Jean I feel was the better player!

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for viewing...Scotland was great...it was also interesting to see the sun setting at 10 PM! Something I was not used to coming from New England at the time.  I wished we could have gone to Ireland...maybe some day I will go.

Yeah, they did adjust the court size.  Also, I think Bobby Riggs was like 40 at that time.  Ok then, let's try again.  I remember first run Mighty Mouse and Bullwinkle cartoons.  HA!

Hi Rae...I'll give you the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. OK, I'll give you Mighty Mouse & Bullwinkle too! But, do you know what Mighty Mouse's original name was?

really great job on the tagging blog...   

and NOW WE KNOW  at least one subliminal reason

WHY THE CEO OF THE OFFICE IN THE SUBTROPICAL SOUTH

IS NAMED SNOWBALL!!!  

 

If blrguy didn't work you so hard... then maybe I  might have already known  some of that  too like RAE...

( who's tag I'll be waiting impatiently for!    what's this old enough for ED Sullivan? (lol) ..... then I WANT (must blrguy beg?) your secret diet and nutrition tips also- to come along with your blog...  now Pleaseeither HELP ME OUT  with the Ponce De LEON serum.... or else come clean with a recent pic ...  cause if someone's getting by on her profile using  one from her  past  of a young  twenty-something - that just isn't right; if its current- then that's simply not  fair either!  Because if some of the rest of us were to try and use pics from decades ago-  our appointments would  still be  in the restaurants trying to find us!  So Rae, don't keep the anti-aging all to yourself,please. )  

but Cris, (even though when I've asked before for his health & beauty secrets just laughed @ me), has  at least shared a couple of his:.

... 1)Eliminate STRESS - Stay out of the CENTER of POLITICS even from day one,

 2) TO REBEL from premature aging-be born in the Southern section of the country from good genes,  even if they have Yankee tendencies in their youth-deep snow & ice, a few years, maybe for the more strong willed,  a few decades likely will take care of that!  As that inbred ingenuity will likely cause  relocation to a better climate.

3) always wear the chap-stick, even if you have to spend your weekends on slippery slopes kissing up the award-winning pretty advertising models to get your supply (now yours was 'pretty', back in the day- right?)

4) Get LOTS of EXERCISE- but stay in the cold and freeze- to preserve the body longer,

5) get educated  -if you don't see any justice in your looks speeding away so fast, maybe become a criminal paralegal so you can find a loophole to slow it  (research shows educated get sick less), 

6) BE A HARDWORKING BROKER  willing to  trade in real estate  negotiating FOR results that are  BETTER LOOKING to YOU-- hopefully helping make many 'fountain of youth' deals happen! (studies show people with money live longer!)  AND

 7) and if nothing else,  KEEP RUNNING AROUND ALL OVER THE WORLD -  try and stay ahead of aging & its longterm result!

__________________________________________________

 

So besides work, work, and more work... do  you get back north to the Ski slopes and the snow pack facial treatments on  a regular basis... or stay mostly on the sandy beach slopes during the cold winters these days?

Hi Suzanne...your secret is safe with me, I won't tell :)  I think this is a fun way to learn about other people.

Hope the fall weather is good.  I miss the color of the leaves.
