There is still much I have to learn in the blogging world, but that doesn't excuse my tardiness in thanking these fine people who have given me blogging awards: Sush at First Do No Harm, Jo-Anne at Jo-Anne's Ramblings, Glow at Sunny Glow, Izdiher at Izdiher, Thisisme at Southhamsdarling, and Stephen at The Chubby Chatterbox. These are all terrific blogs I enjoy reading and I hope you'll pay them a visit. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to do this, but I'm a little dense yet when it comes to blogging etiquette.
Now on to my deep, dark secrets. Stephen's award, the Versatile Blogger, requires that I reveal seven things about myself.
I'm rather a boring person in real life, so I will have to scrounge a little for seven things I haven't already blogged about.
Ahem. Here goes:
1. I can write backwards as quickly and fluidly as I can write in the regular fashion. It's called mirror writing, and I never had to practice it or learn it, just always knew how to do it. In fact, I took a lot of notes in college like that because for some odd reason I can focus better when I write like that. Without too much effort, I can also write upside down and upside down backwards. I can read things very easily written in like fashion. Don't ask me to do higher math, though. We'd be treading in tricky waters there.
2. I've been driving since I was nine years old (remember I grew up on a farm) and have never had one accident, not even a fender bender. Thank you, Lord!
3. I play piano and guitar, but my husband and our kids are the real musical talents of our family.
4. Somewhere in Italy, there is a small cruise ship with my name carved in the banister of its main staircase. Another story for another day, though.
5. Heights make me lose all composure and dignity. Period.
6. I LOVE I Love Lucy. I've seen each episode multiple times and can quote you most of the dialogue verbatim. Lucille Ball is one of the most gifted comediennes of our time, but I think Desi was even more talented than she was.
7. I once had a brief meeting, when I was a teenager, with Johnny Rotten in London. It's kind of a sad commentary that he's the most famous person I've met.
OK, I've dug some things out. What about you? In a comment back, even if you've never commented before, let us know something about you!
