Hmmm.... Five Random Things...

I was tagged by SewMuchDetail last week (her work above). She has a great blog and a beautiful Etsy shop.

I was travelling with work when I got tagged, but that's another story. Anyhoo, that's my lame excuse for not having gotten to this sooner, and I'm sticking to it!

So here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post these rules in your blog.
3. Write 5 Random things about yourself.
4. Tag Random people at the end of the post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged.

So now, Five Random Things about me...

1. I am truly OCD, especially when I feel stressed. I have been known to go back and check my front door at least three times to convince myself it is locked. Pass the valium when a deadline approaches...

2. I spent a summer stripping paint off a chair rail and fireplace at a National Historic Landmark (the Octagon House in DC) and loved it!

3. I had a poem published in a national magazine when I was 15, and that was the beginning and end of my poetry career.

4. I have loved Depeche Mode since 1983. I've seen them in concert 7 times. I saw Martin Gore in London when I lived there. I walked past him sitting on a bench on Tottenham Court Road one day. Turned around walked past him again, and again. I didn't want to be another fan bugging him, so I didn't say anything. What a wuss. Still regret that.

5. I am currently studying for the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) exam.

So now to tag three great blogs! Please check them out!
