I’M BACK with 7 THINGS … !!

January 13, 2010

First of all, sorry for the long absence. I was plowed under with the flu for the last couple of weeks. I did manage to meet a couple of last minute deadlines early on, but then my brain just shut down.

But, I’m better now and, as of last night, once again writing. And to celebrate my return to the living, Michelle Muto has tagged me for
7 Things Readers Don’t Know About Me.

So, here goes …

1. I’m six feet tall. Exactly. My little sister is 1/4 inch shorter which has bugged her all our lives.

2. I married one of my University professors.

3. I’m one of six children. My parents were brave people. LOL

4. I used to enter (and win) dance contests, like rock and roll dancing (NOT disco!)

5. The one trophy I kept from my mis-spent youth is a big ceramic mug I won in a couple’s beer chugging contest.
12 oz. each, seriatim, in 5.2 seconds, baby. That’s right. Read it and weep.

6. I was a horrible high school student. It was THEIR fault. I was bored. My counselor was convinced I was on drugs. I wasn’t.

7. My right leg is 2 mm (just over 1/16 of an inch) shorter than my left.

Whew! That was tough.

And now for something completely different, here’s something I found on Amazon.com. It’s a goatee saver for men with beards. Honest. Obviously designed by someone who’s never had a beard in his life. Sheesh.

    First of all….I’m happy to hear the flu is over! I didn’t mean to be a nag of someone on their sickbed.

    I loved all of the 7 things about you. Marrying your professor is worthy of a book in and of itself.

    I’m also one of a big family. I have 6 sisters and just found out about 2 of them last year. Hm-m-m there might be a book in that also. Especially since my father was a CIA operative.

    I’m so glad Adrian Pheonix gave you those cudos. I keep promoting you all over the blogosphere. I just keep hoping someone is taking notice. “Buy her terrific books”is what I scream, yah think I’m coming on too strong? LOL

    Thanks, Dot! I’m doing my best to the get word out on the various blogs, and I do hope some people are taking notice. Fingers crossed.

    I think I knew about your husband, but not about all the rest. Very cool to know!

  4. Okay, then! Stuff I never knew about you, Donna! Lots of fun. I’m posting my 7 things this Friday.

    And Dot… it’s not too much unless you’re screaming it at perfect strangers in the grocery line. I pitch Donna’s books at parties and social gatherings frequently. Err, like every single gathering. But, in fairness, books always come up. I’m just happy to make them write down Donna’s name and the books.

    Seriously good stuff.
