Tagged!

Okay, I haven't blogged in a while...not because I haven't wanted to, but because I've been working (you know, that thing that pays cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bills) and writing my next book (I've been exchanging chapters with tech editors). In between all that, I've been coding...and if I take this any furcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, I'm going to have to add a "really bad excuse" label to my blog.

So what exactly is a "blog tag"? To be honest, I have no idea. I first saw mention of it over on MySpace, so that should give you some indication of what it is. Now it's been picked up in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 virtual world, even by nerds ("hey, I resemble that remark!") like us. So, my understanding from Richard is that I'm supposed to document 5 things people may not know about me, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n "tag" five ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r bloggers. Okay, here goes...

1. I attended cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Virginia Military Institute for my undergraduate degree...by accident. I am a Navy brat, and was working toward an appointment to one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 federal service academies, and a high school counselor handed me an application to a small military school in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Shenandoah Valley. In fact, he gave me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last application in his folder, and didn't ask me to make copies of it. That's one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 things about my life that I would NOT change if I could.

2. While attending VMI, I ran marathons my senior year. Yes, looking at me, you'd never know that...according to many fellow Marines, I was "built like a brick sh*t house"...a physique not necessarily associated with nor conducive to marathoning-like activities. I first ran cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Marine Corps Marathon in '88, with a finishing time of 2:57. This qualified me for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boston Marathon, which I signed up for (that is, paid money) and ran...with a finishing time of 3:11. There's more to that story, but unless you attended VMI, it would neicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r make sense nor be funny. I ran that Marine Corps Marathon again in '89, while I was in The Basic School, and finished in 2:54. I still have all of my finisher medals.

3. In my first tour in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fleet, I was in Okinawa for a year, stationed with MACS-4. This is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same sort of unit that Lee Harvey Oswald served in. I was a Communications Officer (MOS: 2502). While cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, I studied Shorin Ryu, an Okinawan martial art. I'd like to study Akido and Krav Maga.

4. I have a horse, and yes, I ride. Western. Well, not so much "ride" in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 traditional sense, like dressage, but more in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sense of "don't dump me off and I'll give you a carrot". I've even done this at a dude ranch, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 carrot thing didn't work.

5. I completed my master's degree at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Naval Postgraduate School, just prior to separating from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 military. While cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, I wasn't actively engaged in a whole lot (set up a 10Base2 network and connected cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 detachment to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 token ring CAN), so I worked out quite a bit. At one point, I was doing 27 dead-hang, palms-facing-out pullups and ran cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 3 mile PFT run in 17 minutes or less. I could bench press 360 lbs unassisted...and yet I was 5 lbs over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weight that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Marine Corps said I should be for my height. So I was placed on weight control, along with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Ho-ho and Twinkie bandits.
