I have been tagged by Colin Samuels of the Infamy or Praise blog to continue a meme-tag that has been circulating about.   Actually, I was tagged a bit ago but am just catching up on some loose ends.

OK, in the interest of collegiality, here are five things you probably didn’t know about me:

  1. I  have a saltwater fish tank (but I only have these two fish);
  2. I bought a Taylor guitar seven years ago and still haven’t been able to teach myself how to play (owing to the fact that I have an idiot for an instructor);
  3. My favorite movie is North by Northwest (and not just because of Eva Marie Saint) although Rear Window is a close second;
  4. I never finished my doctorate dissertation in tropical diseases; and finally …
  5. I secretly want to take up sailing and work from offshore.

To advance this circle of life, I’ll tag the RethinkIP guys (Matt/Doug/Steve) along with  the Patent Hawk (Gary) and the Orange Book blogger (Aaron)

    Lee,

    Good point. I probably would have put something but I already wrote about it here:

    So, I didn’t think it really qualified as something “you didn’t know”.

    […] Barista Stephen tagged me with “Five Things You Didn’t Know About Me,” so here you go.. 1. I can clap with one hand. 2. I had fourteen fish tanks in my college bedroom when my wife met me…and she still married me. Number of fish tanks currently in the Nipper household? Zero. 3. I am hyper organized at work, but the exact opposite at home. Secretaries love me, my wife wishes I was more like I am at work. 4. I was a radio station DJ once… 5. In High School I turned down a chance to be one of those “photo opp” kids standing behind a politician (namely President George Bush, Sr.) because I didn’t want to miss football practice. Looking back I wish I would have chosen otherwise (I don’t remember a thing about that day of practice, but probably would have forever remembered meeting a President). […]
