10 Things About Me You Probably Didn't Know


1. I am not scared of spiders.



Okay, maybe I'd be scared of that one...

2. I taught myself to knit, crochet, and weave.



3. I'm allergic to a ton of food -- raw potatoes, soy, wheat, barley, oranges, raw nuts, milk, horseradish, to name a few.


4. I'm addicted to face moisturizers.



5. I love scary movies, but I won't watch them in the theater.



6. I don't watch sad movies.



7. I'm fascinated by birds.



8. I make these weird little dolls called Dotee dolls. A lot of them. I have 100s. 



9. I can read music and, if I wasn't a romance writer, I'd be a lyricist.



10. If I don't get my monthly pedicure, I get super grumpy.



;-)

Much love, y'all.

I hate spiders & scary movies. I don't watch sad movies (deliberately) but I cry at EVERYTHING so it doesn't make that much difference, I don't think. I'm allergic to lavender. My mom taught me the basics of crocheting & I taught myself the basics of knitting, but I can't seem to quite get the hang of getting into either of them. I've played flute and cello, and had 8 weeks of piano lessons. I still have my flute, couldn't play a cello to save my life, and want to take piano lessons again. And I have never had a pedicure.

Oh, go have a pedicure. A good one at a spa. It will make your soul shiny. ;-)

One day, I maybe will. It will require a little more cash than I have right now, someone else watching the kids... and maybe a friend to make sure I don't detour by the bookstore first. :D

*HIDES* OMG you need to warn for spiders /o\

UGH about the food allergies, I"m allergic to mold which means I have to watch how often I eat blue cheese - which sucks because I love it on salads :(

I play piano - not recently but yeah. I LOVE horror movies, but not the torture porn that seems to be popular right now. I refuse to see movies with a "bad ending" just like I refuse to read books with the same. I request that certain movies be pre-screened before I'll agree to watch them.

and GAH I love pedicures :D

Yeah...the picture of the spider could've been put at the bottom. I can't knit, crochet, sew or do anything crafty. My grandmother gave up when I even failed at the "intro to knitting kit".... I have a degree in music and my main instrument is the violin--or the fiddle when I've had just a touch too much ..um..."libations..." :-)
