The ever engaging Doc at Social Zymurgy tagged me to give the old Seven Random or Weird Facts You Don't Know About Me meme a go. And away we go:
Some things you can't take back. I cheated on my true love many times but always came back begging for more sugar. Orange Kool Aid, you were always the one but trying to resist the exotic charms of Grape and Cherry on occasion was simply too much. I liked them all best frozen into ice cube trays.
Each night before I drift off, my inner monologue becomes so deafening that I have to listen to talk radio in order to get to sleep. Other people get to do the talking and I get to judge them instead of myself as I head off into shadow land.
Variety is the spice of life and this may explain why when I was younger, I thought Donny and Marie were much cooler than Elvis Presley. I might still think that. I did however always love Elvis Costello.
Even though I still work fairly hard at seeking the approval of my parents, I sometimes wish I'd had different ones or at least spent more time plotting.
Not thinking things through is my hallmark. I chose to wear a dark brown and possibly velour bow tie in my high school graduation photo.
Family is important to me and although I don't talk about them here, I have two beautiful children from a long defunct marriage. When I realized that I barely liked invading my own privacy to write, I decided to let them exist outside of this forum. My son will be 16 soon and my daughter is 14 going on 30.
As long as there's a moon in the sky, I still won't be able to see the man in it. I've never been able to pick out what I'm supposed to be seeing there.
Clocks and watches are very important to me although I rarely have anywhere I need to be. It makes me crazy if the ones in my house are off by even a minute.
Taking into account the blustery way I sometimes write about myself, I'm a pretty shy person. The rest? Acting!
Sometimes when I get nervous, I stick my fingers under my armpits and smell them like this. Okay, that's Mary Catherine Gallagher but I admire her for feeling free enough to do it.
