Tagged by the Frugal Duchess, now I’m duty-bound to spill the beans with Five Things Only a Stalker Would Know About Me… some of which, it is possible, my own mother does not know.

Okay, here goes:

  1. One of my clients has a giant painting of a female nude in his office reception room. I don’t know if he has recognized me as the blushing subject of the portrait, but I’m not asking. Ever.
  2. For the past twenty-four hours, I have survived without indoor plumbing. This has taught me several important lessons. One, I like indoor plumbing. Two, sewer line breaks are very very bad. Three, sewer line breaks are even worse when you discover them by accident, when everything that’s supposed to be going down the line starts gurgling back up.
  3. My favourite meat is boiled cow’s tongue. Lovely in a sandwich! But I don’t eat it any more, because no one else is willing to cook it for me and I just can’t hack doing it myself one more time. Tongue (before it’s sliced into nice anonymous sandwich meat) looks just a wee bit too much like, well, a great big rude tongue.
  4. My eyebrows are going prematurely grey.
  5. The only naughty dream I’ve ever had that featured a celebrity in the starring role was a dream about Kenny Rogers. Oh, give me a break! — this was years and years ago, I can’t be held responsible for what I do when I’m asleep, and the man looked pretty darned fine in that movie, The Gambler. Maybe it was his brocade waistcoat…

Ah, and now I get to pass the meme torch!

Oh, let’s see what Sharon Hurley Hall, long-distance writing pal, has to reveal! With the reams and reams of words she’s published over the years, bits and pieces have sneaked out… but what juicy details is the woman holding back from us?

Also — and this may be a bit forward, as we haven’t yet been introduced — I’d sure like to know more about two blogging artists I’ve stumbled onto recently. One is Terry of Bent Objects fame — ooh, those bendy-twisty wire dancing people! The other is Erin Wilson of Biscotti Togs, whose eye-catching designs just recently, er, caught my eye… partly because Erin’s responses to a Christmas meme were so very (oddly) intriguing.

Tag! You’re it!

    Sharon/Blogging Writer, thanks for playing! From your list it would seem that we have (yet more) things in common!

    Sharon/Frugal Duchess – Yes indeed, that’s my issue with tongue, exactly! Worse yet, after you boil it, you’ve got to peel the skin… ewww… if I had to do that one more time, I’d be 100% a vegetarian instead of just a part-timer!

    Erin/Biscotti Brain – I can’t tell you how relieved I am to hear that… “Odd” = “Deviating from what is ordinary, usual, or expected” = a very good thing, almost always!

    Great List!
    That portrait story is funny.

    I never eat tongue because the first time I saw it on a table uncut, it looked too much like a body part and I almost gagged.

    Thanks for the list.

    You know, I’ve always considered ‘odd’ a compliment… :)
