Happy Leap Day! Look what I found:

On the Writers' Road Less Traveled has been critiqued and found somewhat deserving...

I popped over to and discovered a bunch of virgin blog territory (for me at least)

I've decided to take up the gauntlet thrown down by Melissa (for fun and because nothing else occurred to me) and participate in yet another meme. Although...this is the 'six things you may not know about me' meme, and I'm not sure I've got six things left to reveal. We shall see...

From Melissa, here are the rule:
1/ you link back to the person who tagged you.
2/ post these rules on your blog.
3/ share six unimportant things about yourself.
4/ tag six random people at the end of your entry.
5/ let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Here goes...

1. I dislike eating wet bread. Intensely. That's everything from french toast to au jus sandwiches, to bread pudding. Yuck.

2. I've never had a brussel sprout, nor the inclination to try one.

3. I have a fondness for certain words, and I like sneaking them into conversation whenever possible. For instance...preposterous, shellac, shimmy, etc. There aren't too many opportunities for, say, shellac, but I do my darnedest.

4. I hold a mean grudge--I can forgive (mostly), but I don't forget.

5. My favorite colors, for as long as I can remember, have been red and turquoise.

6. This might be a tad controversial, but I don't consider football to be a true sport. If it's necesasry to switch out half the players for offense vs. defense, that seems like a pretty big cop out. *Whistle* 'Okay send in the muscle!'...*whistle* 'Muscle out. Send in the nimble, wiry guys!'

Whew! All done. Now I'm just going to go for the gold here and tag some people whom I have no certainty will play along. For all I know, they may have already played and I missed it.

I'll play, but it will be the middle of next week before do and I'm with you on those brussel sprouts.

Stacy said...

It seems I like wet bread. I love both French toast and bread pudding.

Barrie said...

You've never had a brussel sprout???

I love them!

Okay, fine, I'll play. But just not today... :)

Joanne Rendell said...

thanks for meme-ing me! is meme-ing a verb now? I expect so.

Sarakastic said...

I can't remember if I've taken this meme before because every post I write is so random but it looks like fun. I have never said the word shimmy before, but I'm going to start.

Brussel sprouts are ALL SORTS OF AWESOME.
The idea of having my blog critiqued makes me feel like laying down on the floor and hyperventalating. YIKES!

Kate Diamond said...

I agree with Beck--no way am I up for a blog critique!

I also did the meme over at my blog.

Congrats on the wonderful critique of your site! That's great. As for your six things, I love to try to throw fun words into a conversation, though I don't have any specific ones I like to employ. And I so wish I could hold a grudge better than I do. I forgive way too easily, which means that I get taken in again and then hurt again.

you're a trooper! thanks for taking up the challenge! ;)
