I'm a tagging victim! (Updated) Not that kind of tagging...

I was tagged by Cranky of Six Meat Buffet in this Random Facts game of tag that is spreading like a virus over the blogosphere. So as not to break the chain and keep my hopes alive for that check for a million dollars that will surely find my mailbox, here we go:

The Rules (copied from Cranky's post):

1. Let others know who tagged you.

2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.

3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.

4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

OK, well as you know by now, Cranky tagged me.

My 8 random facts:

*I have two cousins who were Republican congressmen (one from North Carolina, the other from Virginia), and a 3rd who ran for congress last year.

*I was a Washington DC Bicycle Courier in the summer of '86

*I once was involved in a crime in which me and my accomplices stole a Pepsi stand. We were never caught. I hope the SDPD doesn't read this blog.

*I was a registered Democrat until 2003. I know. I can't believe it either.

*I once owned a '75 MG Midget. I drove it for about a year before it died. The car sits at my grandmother's house in the country as my uncle still hopes to restore it.

*I had a full-blown mustache by the time I was 15.

*I dated a "rodeo princess" from Yuma, Arizona. Until I caught her cheating on me with a roommate.

*I was once a "witness" in a murder trial. I didn't actually "witness" the murder, however.

OK, I am tagging the following blogs:

Van Helsing at Moonbattery
Jamie at Eye of Polyphemus
My Liberal Friend Sharon Cobb
Rob at Say Anything...because unlike Preston, I trust him
Laurence at This Blog is Full of Crap...because I'm a cat person (and full of crap) too.
LissaKay at Oh...Really?
Linda at Something...and Half of Something...because I got to her first.
Karol at Alarming News...because I love conservative NY chicks.

As Wayne Campbell would say:

Game On!

(Update): Darn. Linda enlightens me to the fact that she's already been tagged. I was hoping to be her first...

Rob at Say Anything is a Yankee fan! Must be some Roger Maris/North Dakota thing.

Jaime at Eye of Polyphemus once wrote an X-files script.

Sharon is...uh...a member of the "Mile High Club." Crazy liberal...

Dreams and hopes dashed...
