Sorry to neglect you all , but I've been somewhat moody of late and I suspect that any posts would be complaints/rants, so I'll spare you all the ugliness. I have not forgotten you, but haven't been up to posting anything for a while. I'll get over it eventually.

So, I've been tagged and I'm required to think and tag some others.

"Tagged?" you ask.

"Yes, tagged." I say. Here's the scoop. Once, tagged, I have to post 4 lists consisting of 3 Joys, 3 Fears, 3 Current Obsessions/Collections, and 3 Random Surprising Facts about myself. After the lists, I have to tag 5 people by listing their names at the bottom of this post and leaving a comment on their blogs.

Sounds easy, right? Grrr... :)

OK. Here goes!

1) Family when people aren't all grumpy/fighting. I love my family dearly, but can't stand the moodiness of the females in it. :)
2) RPGs/Computer Games. I've posted before that I like D&D and WoW, but they aren't the only ones that fall into that category. As for RPGs, I'm playing the Mutants and Masterminds and have played Sidewinder, Cthulu, and Star Wars in the past. On the Computer, I play Counter Strike: Source, Day of Defeat, and Call of Duty 4 as well.
3) Reading. I am a SciFi/Fantasy nut and read quite a bit, though not as much as I would like. :)

1) I will fail my family. I want to provide for my family, but It is a CONSTANT fear that I will fail to do so. A series of layoffs feeds this fear.
2) I'll become that which I can't stand. I was abused by my mother and that has had a profound effect on me.
3) Earthquakes. So why did I move onto an active fault line?

1) Counter Strike: Source. I need to get my average skill above 1000.
2) Yardwork/Garden: I want my yard to look great and I want my garden to be productive.
3) Web Comics: Check 'em out on the right side. I put a rating on them as a rough guide as to their content. :)

1) I'm a good cook. I was taught by my Great-Grandmother. 'Nuff said. :)
2) I'm a Jack of all Trades. I can do all kinds of things.
3) I was raised by my Great-Grand parents. So I was raised old-school and I think it was great.

There are others, but I have to have something for next time. If there is a next time... :)

And now, for the unlucky suckers victims winners of my personal tagging contest. Please visit them and say hello.

I'm sorry to make you feel neglected, but I really don't want to turn my blog into a mostly ranting, soapbox derby. (I really should make more use of my ranting blog just so I can do so. :) Most of the things I've been tempted to post recently have been rants and complaints, so i spared you all the nastiness associated with that.

I do have a question to post to you all. If you had a blog, (some of you do and some of you don't) is there a topic that you won't post about and what is it? I'm not asking to know why as you all have your own reasons why, but I'm curious about my readership - all 4 of you. :)
