Blog Tag, I'm it.

Well, this is my first time ever been blog-tagged or even part of a blogging community and I have to say its kind of cool.

So the original challenge was to ask "your significant other to tell you three things that they know about you and then publish this information on your blog. You also have to pick more victims and then go to their blogs and leave them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged. The comment must end with the word ‘pthththth’", but its transmuted to leave the significant other part out or at least make it optional. I was tagged by Kennie from Tales of the Arctic.

So... 3 random factoids about me:

1. I can actually touch the tip of my nose with my tongue. Unfortunately, this was my only weird talent as a child which was tough because my best friend could roll her tongue, cross one eye, shake her eyeballs and dilocate her shoulders at will - leaving me just a little outclassed.

2. I, with the help of various friends, created no less than 4 languages and 3 alphabets as a youth, and I can still speak a bit of NOYB and a bit of Yamish. I do have to admit that one alphabet was an adaption of Tolkein's Rune's and the other based on the idea of Ogham, but I rearanged the pattern to make it easier to remember.

3. I have stood in a stream on a dark and freezing winter night wearing nothing, but chest waders (and long underwear, jeans, 3 pairs of socks etc) and a tshirt with my arm in the water nearly to my armpit, all in the name of science.... Now I know -26 C is warm for Nunavut in January... but its ruddy cold for playing in a stream.

Now the last part, who to tag?

Way Way Up for being one of the first Nunavut Blogs I started following
Shelley from The Big Move for having an excellent appreciation of flowers
Gabriel from What a Life because its been way too long since he's posted anything
Geoff from Coast of Araska because he got me into blogging in the first place
and Colin from Grog! for aiding and abetting him.

I guess I should go leave some comments now...
