5 Things

Yes, it’s a blog chain mail- meme- but also it’s short and sweet, really. This one is “5 things that you may not know about me”… and since the audience runs the spectrum, from new friends to old friends, friends in Turkey (Merhaba!) and France, (Salut!)- so it’s quite hard to find things that I have not written about, as I’m a writer and constantly mine my nostalgia for bits. Thanks to Lauren who finally finished her 5 things and pinged me to write 5.

5. I adore IMDB. Some nights I’m sitting there, cruising the cast lists in the blue hue of the monitor. Maybe this is why Kathy thinks I’m good on the “identify celebrity” round of trivia?
4. All of my novels (4) include characters with striking similarity to my ex-boyfriend Will: “michoud” on MySpace, and he hasn’t read any of them! And if he hasn’t read them, he probably won’t read this :) And he doesn’t check trackbacks. One word: AOL user.
3. I speak Russian. 3 years in college. And a refresher course. OK I suck at Russian but I persist. Эtot oчeнь Tрудний языk.
2. I watched St. Elmo’s so many times that I ruined the VHS tape. I can’t explain it. I was obsessed.
1. I won a women’s weight-lifting one month at my gym without even trying. My weights had been recorded by this computer and one month I was on the printout of “top women’s weightlifters”.

I’m calling out Rebecca, Rocco, Chester, Tink & drum roll, please… Nancy M!

    Wow – first time I have been “called out” online. Cool. Heading to San Francisco again next week! YES!

    So, do I need to do something here as a result of the call-out? Pardon my ignorance.

    I am actually very much against memes and chain-questionnaires and all that. Primarily because I used to be too much for them. And because I don’t think there’s a lot about me that hasn’t already been mentioned at some point on my site. And, more pointedly, what hasn’t been mentioned has been purposefully omitted because it’s too fucking embarrassing.

    But I can probably think up five things that will actually be new tidbits for most people. It’ll just take me a while…

    […] Ok, Anna’s pinged me for my first chain-blog. I have to write five things that my friends don’t know about me. This is especially difficult as I do seem to confess every little secret with morbid enthusiasm. But I’ll try: […]

    Hmm… Becca notified me of the 5 things thing… I’m kinda with Chester, but I can also identify with Becca. I *want* to tell it all, but I’m still a bit embarassed by some of it…
