I do write fiction, after all. But…no. I’ll be honest. Jordan started it. Sasha did it. So, I’ll do it, too, because I’m too tired to come up with something of my own. :snore: Do what? Introduce myself and any special interests/talents I have.
Hello, my name is Shannon, and I’m a caffeine-aholic. :coffee:
I guess, unless spending fifty bucks a week at Dunkin Donuts is a special talent, that doesn’t count. But after seeing what Jordan’s done and what Sasha’s done, I feel pretty :censor: lame right now.
Umm…I can knit. I can balance breakfast plates for a party of six on my arms, or carry six water glasses. I can type up and assemble those nifty packets of forms you sign at the car dealership.
I can tell you almost anything you want to know about Imperial Russia. Especially the fact that editors don’t like it.
I’ve walked through the battlefields of Gettysburg, gazed across that massive field toward the High-Water monument, and wept for men long dead.
Editors don’t like the American Civil War, either.
I lived in England for three years, but that required no special talent. Just a stepfather in the Air Force.
I’ve been near shoulder-deep in a cow’s ya-ya wrestling with her little one. (That’s probably the only time I’ve gotten to aggravate the shit out of somebody who wasn’t even born yet.) (Oh wait, there were all those times I’d set a glass of ice-water on my pregnant tummy just to make the babies go nuts.)
Did I mention I can knit?
Things I’ve never done that I would like to:
Go to a nightclub
Go to a Macy’s
Travel to Ekaterinburg and St. Petersburg
Go back to England because I didn’t know Anna then, and I’d like to have tea with her. We are so very much alike. (Other than that accent thing, of course)
Even though Florida, during our Disney trip, was like my own personal hell, I’d like to spend two weeks in Key West sans children.
Oh, and I’d like to try a Cosmopolitan, too. (Although Dunkin Donuts has nothing to fear.)
