I got an e-mail today from The Fragrant Muse, the title of which was "You're It." She'd tagged me in a meme, and I simply cannot say no to Liz! (I also couldn't resist her use of Italian, which I kept in my title. And, no, I do not know how to count in Italian, at least not before this; I looked it up.)
The rules are simple: I am to tell 10 things about myself that my readers may or may not know, but are true.
uno. I work with mostly men. (Much less complicated than working with women, I can say from experience.)
due. I am 5'8 (maybe 5'9") and between 135 and 140 pounds, and wear a size 10 shoe. (and on days when I wear heels to work I am taller than most of the men.)
tre. I have been a victim of domestic violence (not my current hubby, he was a victim too). People that know me now (the few that know about it) say they find it hard to believe. I tell them that's because going through that helped to make me the strong woman that I am today.
quattro. My corn relish has won a purple ribbon at the county fair. And a jar of jelly won a red ribbon. I still have the ribbons.
cinque. I have watched "Top Gun" so many times that I know most of the dialogue word for word. I don't like Tom Cruise much any more. Tom Selleck on the other hand . . .
sei. I have worn braces -- twice.
sette. I used to be VERY shy, and I still am a little bit, but I'm also a decent public speaker.
otto. I don't really like diamonds so much. I have a diamond ring that was my mom's, I have a diamond tennis bracelet that my husband gave me for our tenth wedding anniversary, I have some sapphire jewelry that also has diamonds, but that's it. My wedding ring is a plain gold band, and I don't own diamond earrings or a necklace. (Although I look at earrings every once in a while, they just don't thrill me.) I love gemstones, precious and semiprecious, instead. Also prefer silver over gold.
nove. I came home after work in the evening once when my husband was out of town and caught someone in the house. That was scary.
dieci. I really don't like the desert, but I've lived in it all my life. I want to move to North Carolina.
I am now to pass this along to 10 blogging friends. I don't know about 10, but there are a few that I would bet have some pretty interesting stories and that I would like to get to know better. I hope they will share.
