Eight Random Things About Me

Two posts in one day! Have y’all fainted dead away yet?

I’ve seen other bloggers get “tagged” before. Now it’s my turn. My friend Mary tagged me in the 8 Random Facts game. Here are the rules.

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

So here are my 8 things:

1. I attended three different four-year colleges (2 in Texas, 1 in Pennsylvania) before graduating—a semester early, no less!

2.I attended Texas Girls State the summer between my junior and senior years of high school.

3. My first car was a 1967 Mustang (a fact my daughter reminds me of—often.) I drove it for about four months until I was hit from behind and decided a big car was a good thing.

4. I never had any desire to go to Hawaii—until we got a chance to go to Maui five years ago. Now I can’t wait to go back!

5. I majored in history because my freshman English professor gave me a C (and a low one, at that) in my first writing class my first semester of college. Now I’m working at writing as a career. Go figure!

6. I worked in the campus library to put my husband through the last half of law school.

7. Laundry is my favorite household chore. It wins by default, because it is the only one I’m good at!

8. I have never had a broken bone.

So who to tag? Mary tagged most of the bloggers I know and read. So let’s go with Robin, Tina, and Richard. Tag, you’re it!

Kudos to you for loving laundry. I hate it!

Hey, it must be a meme month. I just did one too. But mine was half of yours (Fours!)

Keep up with the laundry loving... it's probably the least likely chore to give you a broken bone. :)

Wow, this is fun, isn't it? I think every blogger I know is doing this one. I LOVE reading facts about people!

And about the laundry... I hate it, too. But now I listen to books on tape while I'm doing laundry... and I never have ENOUGH laundry to keep up with my books! Today I'm starting The Thirteenth Tale on audio.

Thanks for posting your eight things!

D'Ann,
Thanks for "tagging" me. I'm going to have to defer for a bit, though--trying to file the final rough edges off the manuscript of my second novel so I can get it to my agent. But I promise that in the near future I'll list some of my deep, dark secrets on my blog--like playing baseball with Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford.

okay, so the funny thing is that i actually wrote my 8 facts before reading yours...check out my #8 as well! Crazy.

And if you love doing laundry, can you come to my house?
