No, this isn’t a confession to the Wonderland Murders, though you never know, do you?
A friend of mine, Peneleope Price, the very nice author and owner of the Priceless blog, tagged me in a post. She tagged me and said, “You have to do this Meme of Four, Ray. You have to write out four things in each group and tell people about yourself. You must do it! Do it, or your immortal soul is mine!”
Well, now, not that I wouldn’t hand over my soul to Penelope–only because that’s such a sexy name–but (1) I don’t have a soul to give, and (2) if I did have one, My Muse took it, long ago, she hides it in her heart, and she will kick your ass to keep it there. So, nah!
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to talk about these things. After all, my life is both interesting and boring, and some people may get a kick out of the answers I set out below.

Four People I Want to Tag:
Ah, and here’s where it gets tricky. I’m not much for tagging, and I really want to know a blogger before I go laying the tag on them. For now I’ll say, “I’m thinking about it,” and leave it at that.
