Tagged. I think this is blogger PVP. And it happened like a week ago…so I got ganked and missed it! Ok…time to catch up then:

7 Facts about myself:

1) After 20 years of active duty US Navy, retired Chief, endless nautical fun, I’m back working for the Government at the Naval Hospital I started at in 1987. Loving it.

2) I have lived in Florida, Texas, Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado, Missouri, California, and Illinois. During my formative years we raised: Sheep, Horses, Cows, Pigs, & Chickens.

3) I love online gaming (shocker!). Played: Island of Kesmai (compuserve), Gemstone, Dragonrealms (AoL), Ultima Online, Runescape, City of Heroes, Everquest I&II, WoW, Tabula Rasa, Dark Age of Camelot, EVE…and others I have forgotten.

4) It’s amazing how much Letrange and I have in common regarding our thoughts on spam and chain mail.

5) When I used to play Magic:The Gathering competively I learned that I was the kind of gamer Wizards of the Coast coined ‘Timmy’. The guy who loves to tweek. To figure out the inner workings of a rule set and discern the optimal approach to winning. I love to system analyze a game, find profit margins in the economy, damage ratios in the combat, and the most efficient approach to crafting.
‘Timmy’, we don’t just make the flavor of the month, we make the flavor of the month taste better!

6) Before Obama has been President for 2 weeks I will have turned 40 years old.

7) I adore San Diego. The weather here is pristine and everything (scuba, surf, snow skiing, casinos, wilderness, urban shopping) is right nearby.

So, Ga’Len tagged me good and those are my 7 facts. I’m loving the EVE Blogosphere and hope to keep posting and reading others’ great posts.

Check this out: My husband is a retired Navy Chief...was in for 20 years as well. It would be so hilarious if you two turned out to have known each other in the Navy! The world works in funny ways like that though, so it wouldn't surprise me.

Glad to get to know you better since I love your blog and enjoy playing with you on EOHE (haven't been on there much lately due to time restraints, sadly).
