I know the artist used the wrong form of “you’re” in the pic. But it was too funny not to use.
I’ve been tagged! Rachel Harrie is hosting the Writer’s Platform Building Campaign, and the wonderful Tiffany White has tagged me.
Rules: You must be tagged by someone; list 10 random facts about yourself; tag four more people.
I don’t know if I can come up with 10 random facts that are actually interesting, but here goes!
1) The first TV shows I remember watching were Dallas and Hill Street Blues. I knew both the theme songs at the age of four. Guess that’s where I get my love of dramatics and crime, lol.
2) I didn’t watch Sesame Street until I was an adult and had my own child.
3) My earliest childhood memory is going under anesthesia to get tubes in my ears. I remember seeing myself cowering in a corner through a long tunnel. I was two.
4) I loved Little House on the Praire and used to pretend to be Laura Ingalls Wilder. I had old dresses my grandma gave me, and my aunt Donna even made me a calico skirt.
5) The first story I ever wrote was about New Kids on the Block. Don’t laugh. I didn’t know it was called fan fiction way back then. I still have the notebook, and the writing I thought was gold is pretty crappy. But hey, I was 12.
6) In 1986, my dad and I watched Michael Jordan score 63 points against the Celtics. I’ve been a diehard fan ever since. Bulls games were an event in our house, especially during the playoffs. Some of my best memories with my dad are watching those games. I was lucky enough to see Michael play twice, once in old Chicago Stadium (I actually have a piece of the old floor, a red section), and in Indianapolis.
7) My first Hollywood crush was Kirk Cameron. It was this poster that did it.
8) My current celebrity crush is Chris Hemsworth. Seriously. Look at the man.
9) I absolutely believe ghosts, spirits, etc. because of personal experience.
10) The summer of my sophomore year of high school, our band and chorus traveled to Washington, D.C. I was chosen to participate in the daily wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Standing at the tomb hearing Taps played was one of the most moving moments of my life. The link is from this year and not my experience, but the ritual is the same. Our group walked the new wreath out to be exchanged with the old one.
