Tagged by Gracie

Ok, so I am going to post another song soon, probably this friday, one from Scotland this time, Hey Johnnie Cope, but that is not the point of this post.

I don't do a lot of tags, mostly just the ones I think help give people an idea of who I am, and rather convieniantly, Gracie recently tagged me with this one, which I think helps further that end quite nicely.

Last time you had a run-in with the cops? When I owned them during a training excercise involving paintball guns, long story, but the short of it is that a buddy and I got picked to play terrorists, and ten NC police officer weren't enough to take us down.

Last person you talked to in person? My sister, just now, wanting to borrow my MP3 player to transfer some music to a different computer.

A lot of completely unrelated stuff, black leather fingerless gloves, boots, and a jerkin for my Ren Fest costume, a pair of Starfire Longswords for practicing with, a practice set of Uilleann pipes (Pronounced Ill-en) and a full metal body Clarke D whistle.

  1. All I can ever remember of that song is fifes and drums. I've heard several renditions, but don't know the words. I'm interested, very, very, very!

  2. How can you eat that much on one pizza?
    I can barley handle cheese....

    Thanks for praying for my aunt. She'll be hospitalized until the baby comes.

    Also, the accent thing. It still confuses me. Sometimes I wonder if you really are from Ireland or something.....

  3. Ah might be ye wee lass, ye 'ner' knoo!

  4. I honestly cannot read a single word of that.

  5. And now, for my funny but true comment...
