5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me…

Now that I’m home from work and can blog without feeling like I am being a bad girl, I will follow Kat and Jen’s lead and post my 5 things. There are a couple of people that know some, if not all of these, but hey, what can you do? So here they are, in no particular order…

1) I only attended kindergarten for a few weeks, before being moved up to 1st grade. My mother claims that it was done because I could already read (and had taught myself when I was 2ish), but I believe to this day that it was because I took a chicken heart to school for show-and-tell. (Don’t hate me, Kat, I didn’t cut it out myself – I was only 4!!! It came in the bag of gizzards that was shoved inside the chicken we had for dinner.)

2) I play the piano, flute, and piccolo. (NO, I never went to band camp.)

3) I have dislocated my left shoulder twice within the last 5 years. The first time, I was taking the cat to the vet. (He was a big cat!) The second time, I was trying on a blouse in Dress Barn.

4) I used to love the X-Files when it was on. (No, that’s not one of my ‘things’…wait for it!) I used to go online and read ‘fan fiction’ – original stories based on the X-Files characters that had been written by various people and posted on the internet. Some of the stories were really, really good and extremely well-written, and others were so bad you couldn’t be certain that the author had ever even heard of Mulder or Scully. One day after reading a particularly bad story, I found myself thinking, “Geez, I could do better than THAT.” I had an idea for a short story of my own, and I started writing. And writing. And writing. Exactly 1 year to the day later, I had finished writing my very first (and so far, only) fictional novel. Unfortunately, it came at the very end of the X-Files series’ lifespan, so the publisher very nicely informed me that they would not be publishing any more X-Files books. (But being the attention-whore that I am – ha ha – anyone who’d like to read it is more than welcome!)

5) I sing in the car. Loudly. And in the shower. And while doing the dishes. And…pretty much any time there is music on to which I know the words. And sometimes even when there isn’t any music on.

Sorry Mom, I couldn’t come up with anything that you don’t already know (that I feel like telling you now!) lol…

  1. I was thinking the same thing about you, Kat. I think we were both preoccupied with Henryton or something (can't imagine why!)…and at my mom's at dinner, I was in the kitchen slaving away over a hot iron most of the time. lol

  2. LOL! I agree with the ironing and cops! God knows me sitting in the car did not help matters…lol

    Jen did an excellent job ironing, heck all Amber's friends wants their own PRRS investigator jackets now…hmm, we could make some money ironing!
