8 Things You May Not Know About Me

Louis Gray challenged me to post this in his last post. Never one to back down from a challenge, I am going to try to come up with 8 creative tid-bits related to me that most people aren't aware of.

Here I go!

1 - My grandparent's on my dad's side had the same last name before they got married: Narduzzi

2 - I have a teeth clenching problem, and because of this, wear a protective night guard when I sleep.

3 - My senior year in high school I got an award for Redwood Empire Athlete of the Season for the fall. For this award I had a photo shoot and was in a commercial that was featured on the local tv station that covers local sports.

4 - I have never been to Mexico

5 - Despite my 4.0 high school GPA and 1220 SAT scores, I wasn't accepted to Cal Poly. The soccer coach got me into the school. The fact that my major was electrical engineering which is very competitive could have been a contributing factor to me not getting in on my own.

6 - I subscribe to The Wall Street Journal

7 - Tube "boxy" TV's are extinct from my house, and I will probably never own one again. My living room features a 42 inch HD Plasma, my bedroom a Visio 32 inch HD CRT, and the guest bedroom a 20 inch HD CRT by Magnavox.

8 - I have ran in 3 10k's in my life. Twice I have done 'Wharf to Wharf', an annual run from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk to the beach at Capitola, and once I have participated in 'Muffy's Run', a 10k in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. My times range from 43 to 46 minutes for this 6.2 mile run.

Now I'm suppose to challenge 5 other bloggers to do the same post. However, since I don't know 5 bloggers and Louis called "no tagbacks", I will simply challenge one part-time blogger I happen to be married to.
