I want to send a thank-you note of gratitude to Anita Campell of Small Business Trends for sending an invitation to participate in a blog meme called 7 Things You May (Or May Not) Know About Me. I have participated in a few meme games in the past and it could be fun to continue the viral conversation and spread it through the blogsophere. If you want to learn more about EGO editor, please read my post, THREE GOOD THINGS ON TWITTER and follow me on Twitter.

The Seven Things:

  1. I am built like a "terminator" (kind of) with a plastic spare part under my skin, near one of my eyes. It all happened after jumping on a springboard (trampoline) and getting a knee in my eye... *bang*! This accident happened during a gymnastics lesson in middle school. I had to get an operation and I was stuck at a hospital for some time. My eyesight didn't get damaged, but I will never become a combat pilot!
  2. I have trained a human self-defense called jiujitsu. I received a blue belt after a couple of years. I met one of my best friends during this time. More about Christer Sjöback later on...
  3. I have plenty of my belongings stored at a friend's place in Troy, Ohio, USA. This is my "lifeline" and link to the land of opportunity. I have to visit the Midwest again and go through my stuff... Link tip:
  4. I played chess when I was kid. I often used "Scandinavian defense" as a "black" player. I am open for a game of chess...
  5. I have have had a Fisher Space pen in my pocket since my birthday on May 25, 2003. My friend Christer Sjöback gave it to me.
  6. For some reason, I got the nickname, Quicksilver, by a student at Southern New Hampshire University. It could be that I often had clothes by Quiksilver...
  7. I am trying to learn Interlingua...

Blogger's Dilemma

Who's Next?

I will update this post when my fellow "tagged" bloggers have published their 7 things posts.

The Meme Rules:

  • Link to your original tagger(s) and list the meme rules in your post.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  • Tag (link to) seven people at the end of your post by writing their names and the links to their blogs (and Twitter pages).
  • Inform them that they've been tagged and that they have an assignment to do.

Note to my readers: Please feel free to share some stuff about yourself and write something in the comment section. For inspiration, read my post, TOASTMASTERS. I had my first ice-breaker speech at Toastmasters last summer. So, don't be a stranger, break the ice and spill the beans!

  1. Nice post, Martin. Jiujitsu, huh? Remind me to never get on your bad side. :)
