We had a tag thread one time a while back where folks had to tell five things no one knew about themselves. Having been tagged about ten times, I got nothin' left! :D Y'all know everything there is to know about Ol' Girl...

... well... there's maybe ONE thing you don't know. And I ain't EVER tellin' that one.

I have a softer side, to which people like Perks, davids and III will attest, but I keep it well hidden in PMs because I'm scared that people will laugh at me, damn my crippling self-esteem problems!

There, I've said it.

Oh, and I'm NOT a spaz, before you say it, Kevin.

I was thisclose to joining the Peace Corps once. I kind of wish I did.

But I did do some volunteer work in India, if only for a month.

Most people IRL don't know that, because I SO don't look the type.

This is kinda freaking me out. :)

scarletpeaches

There's lots the people of AW don't know about me to be honest. Just facts, nothing deep and meaningful (to me, anyway) but I don't mention them because they're irrelevant.

And I don't want to.

And I'm just trying to appear more interesting than I really am.

Twice when I was a kid I played a major role in a play. Once it was a christmas play and once it was a school play for my jr. hi acting class.

The second time I discovered stage fright.

I also discovered that I can't actually act. ;)

I think Aruna started that thread. Didn't we have to reveal ten things? I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday but recall each item I listed on that thread from many months ago.

My answer to the OP is that I remember only important stuff. :)

Maybe I've already disclosed this about myself. If so, forgive me for being repetative.

I never laugh in the movies, but a good book can give me cramps from laughter.
I find it hard; no, extremely hard, to take anyhing less than serious. Life's too short. The longer I live, the more serious life gets.
I am still fighting my consciousness about things I did, oh, too many years ago...
Few people would know that deep in my heart I am still a romantic.
And with all the above; that I hate myself for being such an ass!

ZannaPerry
11-01-2007, 01:19 AM
Well, this isn't serious but one thing people don't know about me is that I welcome death with open arms, and the afterlife, and....I like to hang around graveyards with friends, but at the same time I am a bubbily personality.

But this is ONE THING that no one knows JUST YET besides my parents. I was just admitted into an Art School that I will be attending at the beginning of 2008. Living there. Working there. Getting ready to start my career in something art. I'm going for Interior design! Really excited about that.

Alas, some thing people don't know about me is that I am a running freak. I love to run. I do it just about every morning before class or work.

Hmm. I didn't participate in the other thread, so I've got all kinds of material.

I can sing. Or usedta-could, anyway. I can still carry a tune and make harmony easily. Yet I married a man whose picture appears in the dictionary next to tone-deaf. Until the kids were big enough, I had to lead the singing of "Happy Birthday" on my own birthday or it would be unidentifiable.

Well, y'all know I love chocolate, and love giving rp's. I did have my free verse love poetry collection accepted by an Australian publisher, MetroSeven, a few years ago, but they went out of business, unfortunately. They were going to do it as a print book. Too bad. I used to smoke 3 packs of cigarettes a day, but haven't gone back once in 40 years, even though I eat sweets to excess. Can't think of much else.:)

1. When I was 15, I was a boney geek with glasses and braces in desperate need of validation.
2. I hate being dismissed out of hand.
3. My first reaction to any comment about my writing is defensive.
4. I queried an agent before I was done editing.
5. I really do look just like Haskins, Soccer Mom, Celina and Monkey.

For fun, I randomly substitute the word "pants" into famous quotes from books and movies. Go ahead, try it, it's brilliant.

One of my MANY nicknames is Hillaratory. It's booze-related.

All through high school and my freshman year of college my greatest ambition was to be the next Jane Goodall. I used to practice by watching the goats on the farm I worked at: don't ask me why I thought that would help.

On the first day I had my driver's license I backed into a parked police car and - erm - drove home immediately.

Noobs are unknown creatures, so I'll venture a few things. :)


I love cows. All types, all cows, both real and decorative.

I got an F in Poetry in high school.

Subsequent to that but not due to it I became a high school dropout.

My father, whom I still think of and miss every day, who broke my heart because he went and died, has been gone for 37 years, which number shocks me.

I call cold rainy days cookie days, because them's the days I bake cookies for comfort.

My feet get cold so I wear gigantic blue fuzzy slippers with hearts on them. The other day I was so absorbed in my WIP that I walked down to the corner store wearing said slippers without realizing. Yes.

I like to walk long distances in blizzards. With boots, not the fuzzy slippers.

Something else about me... I have an obsession with eyes with lots of makeup. I recently made a collage behind my computer desk of just a million eyes I cut out from fashion magazines. Looks like I have a million eyes on me. It also helps when I do my speeches. I don't get so nervous.

Also, I don't like wearing gawdy makeup. Can't stand to, sometimes.

Uh, gee, I have no idea whom you are referring to, but I personally did overdo it a bit last night with the pizza and the goodies.

HOWEVER....today I redeemed myself by taking a 30 minute walk.

I have a reputation for being serious and keeping things close-to-the-vest. However:
I have great secrets that I won't tell.
I am always tempted to tell them for the sake of entertainment.
I will crack if the right circumstances present themselves.

Few people recognize the right opportunity to wheedle information when they can.

Don't even get me started with Google. I'm still living down a Google shitstorm from about six months ago. My years of writing credits still come up come up below the insane media frenzy when one searches my name on Google.

They say "there's no such thing as bad publicity." I'll be reporting back on that when I query my novel and find out whether those search results are intriguing of off-putting for agents and editors...

I automatically count the steps whenever I walk up or down a flight of stairs. Doesn't matter how many times I've been up them - I always count.

I collect penguins (not live ones, though I might if I could find a place to keep 'em)

I love to cook

I had a beer with Dan Marino (former Miami Dolphins QB, for those who might not know) in the parking lot of Joe Robbie Stadium back in the day. I also went out to dinner with Ricky Proehl (another football player) during his rookie season with the Cardinals.

I once shoved NJ's Governor, Christie Whitman, out of my way because I said "Excuse me" three times and she still wouldn't move.

Oh, and I sold vitamins to John Delorean (I used to work in a pharmacy he frequented) - he was a very nice man.
