Seven Random Things

Over at Matt’s blog I said I’d do this meme thing–seven random things about me for what they’re worth.

1. My great-aunt accused me of being sexist when I was eight for writing a poem about the sun and making the sun male. 2. With a tape recorder I taped The Wizard of Oz from the TV and for weeks I fell asleep while playing the recording under my covers. 3. I wrote my first “book” in the 7th grade. It was about cute little space blobs. 4. I skipped school twice my senior year. One day to go to the Sidewalk Art Show in Winter Park, Florida. Another day to stay at my mom’s apartment and write a short story for English class. The story was supposed to be ten pages–I wrote 24 pages and still it wasn’t finished. 5. At 14 two other girls and I published a newletter about horses. We had subscribers from different states, but eventually homework and chores got in the way. 6. When I read my work in public I go temporarily blind. 7. In the 9th grade a man in a pale blue suit followed me to library one day after school and though that was the end of it, I stopped going to the library after that–even though I used to go once a week or more. I’ve never gotten back in the habit.

Whew. Seven. Now you do it.

    So all but one of your seven things are about books and writing, and even the Wizard of Oz started as a book. Did you do that on purpose, or does that say something about your neural pathways?
