Five Things You Never Knew About Me

And were probably afraid to ask.

So the talented and apparently merciless Karen MacInerney blog tagged me this morning. Today's subject: FIVE THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT ME.

Hey, I'm guessing there's probably a lot about me you don't know. Of course there's also a lot about me that you can find out with some rudimentary digging, but, really, there are lots more worthy subjects for your digging. Why waste those detective skills on me?

1) Anyway, the first thing you might not know about me is that I am a huge fan of Samurai movies. I'm not kidding you. I've seen pretty much everything that's available on video and DVD. Yes, I love Kurosawa's films, but I'm especially partial to those off-beat and obscure black and white ones you sometimes come across.

2) I have a skull on top of the stack of magazines from the 1930s that sit on the armoire in my office. Okay, it's not a real skull, it's a replica. But it looks pretty cool.


4) I was secretly afraid of the Wicked Witch of the West until I was about 13. I know, it's embarrassing! She kind of looked like my grandmother...only green. And a lot more strict.

5) I met Mr. Thrilling (my esteemed lord and webmaster) on-line. He jokes that I get everything on the Internet, including my husbands.

Okay, I have to find some hapless victims of my own...

And my obliging victims are...Sara Rosett, who just received a KILLER review in Publisher's Weekly (yea, Sara!), the clever and always amusing Shelley McKibbon, AND my own Mr. Thrilling. You're IT, kids!
