Tagged...

So I have hit a dilemma in my writing. I think I'll distract myself with a blog entry while I wait for my muse to decide to jump the story a couple of months or let it stay. Meanwhile I have been tagged at least three times with the seven unique things about me so without further adieu I will attempt to entertain you.

1)I have a phobia of large glass windows. If they are over 4' square it starts bugging me. I am pretty sure it comes from watching the movie Bladerunner when I was a teen. When the girl goes through all of those plates of glass.

2)I love tappioca pudding. No reason just do.

3)I collect pumpkins, yep they are on top of my cupboard in my kitchen, some people come in and ask why I havn't removed my Halloween decorations.

4) I love Halloween and Fall it is my favorite time of year. I dont belive in the scary decorations or costumes, but I love pumpkins and corn stalks and orange and black lights. I use Halloween as a time marker in my books, alot of things happen on Halloween for Noble and Lyris.

5) with the exception of feeling a little isolated, I love living in Castle Dale, it hasnt taken me a year or more to get used to it like everyone has said it does. I like the more relaxed atmosphere, the safety my kids have here, and the much better schools. (Besides as a part time fantasy writer, what a better place to live than CASTLE Dale.)

6)I collect dishes too, I have a whole cupboard filled with china, stoneware, goblets etc. This is the first house that I have room to put them somewhere besides a box in the garage. I love having people over and having nice dishes and things to use.

7) My boyfriend my senior year of High School introdouced me to my husband.

I love tapioca pudding, too. It's the closest thing to this tapioca drink that I loved growing up in the Philippines. It was great to see you yesterday. Good luck with everything and keep on writing!!

Funny, isn't it? You love Halloween and I hate it. I guess that's why we are friends, opposites attract and all that. :^>

No i am not ready for conference, i am panicking!!!!!! I am having laurel work with me asking me questions. I hate the satanism in Halloween but love fall and the pumpkins....

You have to admit those windows were pretty big.... my diningroom has one big window that i leave covered most of the time even if i live in the dark LOL.

If you ask me I'll admit that the window was asking for it. :)

When I was a little girl, my mom used to make tapioca and put food coloring in it. She'd color each bowl separately and we could choose what color ours was. I never much cared for the stuff, but eating it colored was kind of fun.
