No tag backs!

The first rule of the game, however, is to post the rules of the game. Here they are:

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

Eight random things about me:

*I have a box of five-years' worth of Wham!/George Michael memorabilia that I doubt I could ever part with in my attic.

*I love peanut butter and sweet pickle sandwiches.

*I've read Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising sequence-- all five books-- at least ten times in my life.

*Snapdragons are my favorite flowers, and I like to write plays for them as puppets to entertain my kids.

*I still want to believe that fairies dance in the moonlight under my oak trees.

*I worked for four years as stage manager in charge of costumes and make-up at a Halloween attraction named number one in the state.

*I love the show Jericho.

*I own fourteen pairs of Converse Chucks-- two pairs are almost twenty years old now (yeah, that's probably rather gross, isn't it?)

Come on, the rest of you gals, where's yours????

Peanut butter and sweet pickles? Girl, that is just disgusting.

I'm going to post mine Thursday, because that's my real day, and everyone knows I always follow all the rules. Har.

If the fairies aren't dancing under your oak trees, it's because they're all hanging out in the enchanted lot at the top of our hill, where fireflies light their parties and the trees whisper their secrets whenever a north wind blows. I'll let them know you miss them.

I mean Friday. The 11th. As you were.

Jenny, don't knock it until you try it! I've converted many in my day...

T. Suzanne Eller said...

I'm with Jenny. Yuk. : )

Time for a new pair of shoes, my friend, though I think that it is cool that you wear Converse tennies.

I've never read The Dark is Rising series, but I wonder if my 10-year-old son would like them.

I heard Susan Cooper speak at the SCBWI conference in February in New York. What an incredible writer she is!

The books must be good if you're read them ten times! :)
