Stolen from Someone Else
Ten Things You May Not Know About Me:

1. I LOVE Coronation Street. There is something about the reality of the people on that show. None of them are gorgeous and they are all faulty somehow. I'm an ADDICT.

2. I had plastic surgery once. Oh it wasn't on my face ... it was on ONE THIGH. See when I was 16 and just learning how to ride young horses I got bucked off and stepped on. The horse planted a hind foot on the back of my thigh (thank goodness it was the squishiest part of my body!!) and launched himself away from me. That left some serious scar tissue and a lump that stopped me from wearing shorts for a long time. I never got it fixed because I was always riding horses and couldn't take any time off. But last spring I booked the surgery and let me tell you it was THE most painful thing - other than childbirth - that I've ever gone through.

3. I think military guys are hot. Especially mine. Ok, maybe you knew that already... I chose mine in 1996 when I was walking through the Adriatic Sea on the coast of Italy because I could see that he and the rest of his group had short army haircuts and army t-shirt tan lines. I am the girl that Army Romance Novels were written for.

4. I have always wanted to be a war correspondant. I was glued to the TV during the first Gulf War. I still want to go.

5. My parents divorced when I was in Grade Two and the first person I told was Mr. Finlay, my teacher. He sat with me on the bench outside our classroom and listened. I remember for the first time thinking "I am growing up. Now."

6. I'm a book collector. Oh, you knew that already... well I am a true addict. When I want to feel good/better/calm/relaxed I go buy a book. It doesn't matter if I read it in the next year, it makes me feel better to buy it.

7. I support politicians with my vote only. I support industries I care about with my money. Yet I do not think that anyone is in charge of supporting me - except me.

8. I believe that feminism's time has passed and the lack of traditional roles in our society is hurting us now.

9. I will return to college before I am 40. I will get a degree. Because.

10. I loved Major Man the first time I spoke to him. That was 9 years, 74 days ago. May 30th, 1996. He is the hero in every romance novel I've ever read and the prince in every fairy tale of my youth.
