The Straight Eight...

I was tagged by Kwizgiver so here are 8 random things about me and/or my life......

1. My Grammy was so militant about ironing that I swore I'd never iron. I don't even own an iron and I'm glad.

2. I have a completely irrational fear of mannequins, wax figures, and statues. There is a statue of Sam Houston in Huntsville that nearly makes me hyperventilate.

3. I make up my own filing system for books, movies, & DVD's so everyone won't notice how OCD I am.

4. At the age of 11, I had a bad experience with an upper GI and ever since then the smell of strawberries makes me very nauseous. This sucks because it’s one of my favorite fruits.

5. I visit my neighborhood library so often (usually once a week) that they know me by name.

6. I have recently discovered and begun using the Wash & Fold service at my local laundromat, but it took me over a month to convince myself that using it didn't mean I was lazy. They know me by name too. :)

7. I want more than anything in the world to be a writer, but am all but paralyzed by a fear of rejection.

8. I think the sexiest and most intimate act between lovers is a long, slow kiss that lasts until you both are breathless.

1. Make a list of 8 random things about yourself and/or your life on your own blog.
2. Tag 8 other bloggers leaving a comment on their blog with a link to your post.

Tagging: Sweetest T, BigRedOne, smashingly, The Wonder, Violet Mistress and whoever feels like doing it. Just leave me a comment letting me know you did it so I can read it.

Ok, I have to ask. Why does the statue of Sam Houston make you hyperventilate? :-)

Library: me too, if I have a book on reserve when I enter, one of the girls knows me and she goes back and gets it and has my card file up on the monitor manually before I even give her my card

Ok, so what does one pay for wash & fold service in your neck of the woods?

What's up with being freaked out by statues, etc? Sounds like an interesting blog idea. ;-)

"I want more than anything in the world to be a writer, but am all but paralyzed by a fear of rejection."

You will be rejected. This is a given and this will happen regardless of the quality of your work. Sometimes rejection is a good thing, it helps you realize that your enthusiasm might not have been warranted and that going back to the drawing board might not be such a bad thing.

That being said, get out there, take some lumps, learn from your experiences (both good and bad), and then kick some ass.
