Maynard's Horror Movie Diary, tapped me for the 7X7 Link Award. I was in the midst of the Big A to Z and moving so I did not get to properly acknowledge this. I am so touched by this and feel just awful that I haven't said anything before now. Anyway, to accept this fine accolade, I have to first tell you some things that not many people outside my immediate circle know. Since I blab about pretty much everything here, what don't you all know...LOL I'm NOT going into those sorts of details, minds out of the sewer! ;D
Now let me see what don't you know about me...
I was on the pom pom team in high school. Yes, I was one of those girls who entertained the masses by shaking my booty at halftime. I've still got rhythm, I'll have you know. I just require pomegranate martinis or other alcoholic inducements to put on my boogie shoes. ;)
I bowl like Fred Flinstone. Yes, I do the whole twinkle toes hippety hop turning thing. And my friends say I wiggle my ass just before I release the ball. So yeah, come bowling with me and you'll get a good laugh. And hey, those moves garner me a lot of strikes and spares, so you might want me on your team. I'm just saying...:)
I cannot drink hot things. My coffee must be iced, my soup lukewarm. I have been known to drink milkshakes and other frozen beverages while standing outside in the snow at football games.
I moved across country from Chicago to Seattle with less than 700 dollars to my name. Pawned everything when I got there and was nearly homeless.
I prefer to eat things with a fork. I will not use a spoon unless absolutely necessary. Yes, my peas get eaten with a fork.
My favorite food in all the land...Blueberries. Oh my gawd do I love blueberries. I'll eat whole pints myself at one sitting. And do not ask me to share them. I will go all South Side your ass.
And now I must link to posts that fit these criteria:
An Original Rhyme By Me This is the one time I put up an original poem and bared my inner poet to Internet. Loved the comments here.
My Insecure Writers Support Group post from December 2011 I talked about staying true to yourself and your writing voice. I've had a lot of emails about this since I first posted it.
C Is For Cargasms This was my entry for C in last year's A to Z. I cannot believe the sheer volume of visits this piece still gets.
Men and Women...Just Friends? I had a really great discussion going on this one. I wrote it in response to Jason Bateman saying that men and women could never be just platonic friends.
Most Surprisingly Successful
TV's Bad Ass Bitches: Fiona Glenanne It blows me away every time I see more hits for this piece. Who knew the Fi love was so strong?
In Celebration of Banned Book Week I thought sure this one would get more traffic, but it did have some inspiring comments and a great discussion.
Most Pride Worthy
Melissa's Horror Film Survival Rules I am a horror film junkie and I had so much fun writing this piece. I still laugh just thinking about it.
