seven things

I’ve been tagged by Spirit Cloth for the “seven random facts/habits” meme, so here are mine:

  1. I’m addicted to historical novels by Dorothy Dunnett. One outcome is that while reading on the subway, this

    has been visible to all, and I have been suffering the imagined indignity of being perceived as a romance reader.

  2. …which leads me to my second thing. Whenever (rarely) I buy an issue of Martha Stuart Living, I feel as self-conscious as if I were buying porn. Perhaps these two really belong in a single “I get embarrassed while reading” category.
  3. I keep and categorize beads which are faulty and unusable: a bowl of white pearls, one of stones, and one for colored pearls and glass.
  4. Sometimes when I’m going to sleep I think, “Soon there will be coffee.”
  5. As a child I had two guinea pigs called Gin and Tonic. I don’t know who named them. I like liquid G&Ts, but that came later.
  6. I once shook hands with Lady Di.
  7. I can write backwards.

I pass it on: the next stop will be, pink nest, miss frugality, the brown wall, and buddha is.

The Rules
Start with 7 random facts/habits about yourself.
People who are tagged have to write their 7 things on their blog, then choose another 7 people {or in my case as many as possible} to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment to tell them they have been tagged and to read your blog.

    But you need more Trash Pride.

    I know what you mean about the Martha mags. When ever I buy a craft book I feel obliged to top-and-tail it with a weighty intellectual book before taking it to the checkout, just in case the clerk judges me as one of ‘those’ types.
