I was tagged with this AWESOME meme by the most AWESOME blogger, CORA. I need to come up with seven AWESOME things about me, and then tag seven deserving bloggers, so that they can do the same. As a smart man, I always do try and do what my girlfriend says.
But I need to put that special "Scope Spin" to the whole thing. That's when I realized that AWESOME was a seven letter word. And with that thought, I give you:
SCOPE'S A.W.E.S.O.M.E. SEVEN
A – Artistic Eye – I might not have any real artistic ability, but I do have an artistic eye, and try to make things esthetically appealing. I even correctly tab and align my toss away code at work. I would have been an architectural engineer, if I hadn't turned to computer science.
W – Wisdom – Data > Information > Knowledge > Wisdom. I have the ability to manipulate data into information, twist information into knowledge, and glean wisdom from knowledge. That's my job.
E – Eric – The "Eric" personality is deep, caring, true friend. Sensitive, quiet, and concerned what other think. Doesn't mind finishing second. You get to see him around here some, but he's much more visible in person.
S – Scope – The "Scope" personality is the cut up, the jokester, the one that loves a horrible pun or play on words. Scope is also a MONSTER flirt. He's the guy that comes out to play on-line, here and in Facebook most often.
O – Odd – I was going to go with "Original" but I think "Odd" suits me better. I've always been a bit, "off the bubble" and have seen things from a different point of view. My willingness to embrace my "odd" without going completely over to the "eccentric / weirdo" side (the difference between an "eccentric" and a "weirdo" is how much money they have), I think, is why I am where I am today.
M – Monetary Mentality – I'm not overly driven by money. Sure I like money, but I make about enough, honestly. I can do what I want, within reason, have a home, and feel fairly secure. Money is just a tool. Not an ends. I'm sure if I were making 50% of what I do, I would sing a different song, but not entirely. I was unemployed for a year, and still didn't care enough to eBay my comic book collection.
E – Easy Going – For the most part, I'm Mr. Calm and Mellow. I try not to let things rile me, but look for the logical and practical solution to the problem at hand. Being the calming influence is a tumultuous situation can be difficult, but I'm not "the Easy E" because I put out on the first date.
Well, that's seven, and now for the tags… I tag you, and you. And you, the lurker from that one place. That's three. Oh, and you and your blog buddy, you. Oh, and how could I forget to try to lure the lapsed bloggers of you and you.
(Note, the above aren't actually links. I'm just funning. Take the meme if you think you're awesome.)
