5 things about me...

Apparently I've been tagged in some kind of sadistic game where you tell the world 5 odd things about yourself just to pass the time in the offseason.
So here goes:
1) I am incredibly loud in real life. I mean, in crowds I don't need a microphone to be heard. For a brief period in 5th grade I was known as the "Megaphone" for my ability to be heard across the playground.
2) To some people I am known under the alias of "Ron Weasley". It was an elaborate 8th grade scheme to pretend that we were the characters in Harry Potter. Drove my evil science teacher insane, as we only reffered to each other as "Harry" "Ron" or "Draco". The more disturbing part is that we were all girls.
3) I write down the Canes scores, record, and Erik Cole's points for every game in my school planner. And I have to do it in red ink. And I have to write the games down at the beginning of the week in red sharpie, and the stats the day afterwards or otherwise they'll lose.
4) I love watching Teen Titans and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy on Cartoon Network. I can sit and watch those cartoons for hours straight.
5) I'm superstitous about colors. If there is a selection of colors I'll always pick red or pink and stay the farthest away from dark blue (aka Dook Blue).

So, that's me and my wierdness. Well, some of it, there's lots more. I could probably go on and on about it, but I think that would bore most of you.
I'm supposed to "tag" other people to pass on this sadistic game, but I've been looking around, and there are no other people to tag that haven't already be tagged (at least that I read and are likely to do it). Why am I always the last one in on these things?
I would re-tag people, but where's the fun in that? Seriously, if I'm going to "tag" people I want to be able to see the product of my own evilishness.
So here I am, the end of the "tag-line".
I'm now going to go away in self-pity.

Hi Ashley,

I think you've done a very nice job with your blog. I have had a chance to browse your site and I think many people would enjoy reading it. I would like to link to your site from my site.

For the past few months I have been working on my site www.writeonsports.com. It is still in the process of being developed and will be finalized in the next month (or so). The premise of the site is to provide a centralized area where independent people, who like to write on sports or read about sports, are able to find articles/authors they enjoy. As part of my website, I am going to provide a "sportsblog library". This will provide readers a searchable data base to find the sports teams that they enjoy reading about. I would like your site to be part of the sportsblog library. If someone searches for the Hurricanes they would be able to find a link to your blog.

I am not looking for a straight listing of all the blogs that relate to each team; I am looking for a place where someone can go and find a well written blog that offers information to the knowledgeable reader. I think your site provides such a quality. As such, I would like to invite you to be listed in the sportsblog library.

Anyway, I look forward to your response and I hope you will accept my invitation.

Thanks,


David Crowe
