Eight things about me

Kendra tagged me. Damn her!

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

8 random facts/habits about me ...

1. I love sleeping. If anyone denies me my ten hours a night, I am a very cranky critter.

2. I've been vegetarian since I was six, but I hate mushrooms, aubergines, courgettes and avocados. They're just so slimy. Why do people insist onmaking vegetarian dishes with them? There are millions of other vegetables you could use instead!

3. I have a habit of naming pets after foodstuffs. So far we've had Honey, Candy, Sugar, and Pepper. Actually, my mum has a thing against giving animals human names, don't know why. Although I know I've read books where the heroines have had those names. All of them.

4. I spend way more time than is healthy at this computer. When I came back from two weeks away after the RWA conference in 2005, I came upstairs and gave my computer a big hug.

5. I spent five days away just before my birthday all by myself, and it was fabulous. Except I missed my cats so much I had to go and buy a little soft toy tiger to cuddle. True. His name is Roar.

6. I can't think of eight people to tag. Kendra already got a couple of my choices, damn her!

7. I'm such a big Buffy fan I named a character in each of my Sundown books after Buffy characters. When I grow up, I want to be Joss Whedon. Or at least Marti Noxon.

8. I am the whitest white girl in the world. Not only do I not tan, I don't even fake-tan. Regular fake tan is way too dark for me, and even after layers of Johnsons's Holiday Skin, I'm still only roughly the same colour as a normal person in the depths of winter. Sigh!

I am tagging... Amelia, Sybir, Kate D., Julie, Michele, Dakota, and Alysia (and ohmyGod, Alysia, your Space is making me SO hungry!), which is only seven but I can't think of anyone else.


  1. Ok, I'm tagged.


    LOL. Please tell me where I can find my sanity. Oh, and my time to WRITE!!!!!
