Tagged by Psychodiva: 8 Things About Me

Thanks go out to Psychodiva who tagged me!

  • All right, here are the rules.
  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start 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.

Okay, here we go:

  1. Until I started college, I thought I'd become a music teacher/band director. I learned all the instruments I could and played in any ensemble that would have me. But I didn't like doing theory or learning scales, or practicing. So I married a musician/composer instead. I tell people that since my husband is a musician, I needed to make money and went into marketing/business instead.
  2. I don't want to be buried in the ground. In fact, I don't like the idea of my dead body being paraded around. Just burn me, have a big party, and put my ashes wherever you want.
  3. I spent the first 5 years of my life on an old farm in Nebraska. My parents didn't farm (except for a large personal garden), but we were surrounded by fields and animals. I remember it fondly.
  4. I hate seafood. I do not like the fishy taste. I also don't like the fact that some look like giant bugs. They probably were bugs at one time. Don't tell me that swordfish is the least-fishy-tasting fish. If it's fish, I won't like it.
  5. I am currently writing a youth novel (for ages around 12). It's about an obsessive-compulsive ghost that farts a lot.
  6. My kids (aged 7 and 2 1/2) have an electric guitar, piano and drum set that they are allowed to play. The noise does not bother me. I think it's music!
  7. I love to play video games. Especially ones where you shoot things. I'm not so much into roll-playing games, but I do like Sims. I wish I had more time to play.
  8. I love watching the special features on DVD's, especially the deleted scenes and mistakes. I love knowing how they made something.

Tagged! Here are the other bloggers that I have tagged:

not like fish! You should try sushi, raw fish doesn't have a fishy taste!

Not sure I can do this. I'm on vacation and not blogging a whole lot, but I enjoyed reading yours and am still thinking about the book your writing. Interesting subject!

I'm not wild about fish myself. Thanks for the tag. I'll see if I can't work myself up to do this again, though after doing it a couple times I'm afraid I may have run out of things to say about myself :)

I hate seafood. I don't think that God meant for us to eat something so ugly and smelly. I understand that other people love it, though, so more for them!

I played, it's up at my blog now!

I hate seafood too! I feel like I have to keep quiet about it tho cos other people don't understand lol

I also adore playing shoot-em-up video games- a great stress reliever and please can i have a copy of your book when it's finished?? it sounds like my kind of thing and so often young people's fiction is better than adult fiction.

I love your explanation for why you got into marketing/business. And I also love your feelings about your kids' music! It is music indeed.

I bumped into your blog via Brad S. He's working on a new post, I hear...
