According to the rules, I'm supposed to share 10 things about myself and nominate 5 other bloggers. Here is my list of 10 things:
#1 - I have a Bachelor's in English writing, graduated from law school, and am a few weeks away from getting my MBA. I am not a practicing attorney, however. I don't care much for working at a job-- I had other reasons for getting my law degree.
#2 -I have 10 pet rats, all females, and each one has a first name and a middle name. They live in a 5 foot tall cage.
#3 - My husband and I work for ourselves selling handmade crafts.
#4 - I am an obsessive collector. My collections include: vintage adults only novels from the 1960's, Victorian post mortem photography, antique circus sideshow photography, and original paintings by pop surrealist artists. And that's just to name a few-- there are more collections than this!
#5 - I have been a voracious reader since childhood. My favorites include Kurt Vonnegut, Daniel Clowes, Jack Kerouac, and George Saunders.
#6 - I am attracted to the strange, the taboo, and the outlandish. People who are outside normal social conventions fascinate me.
#7 - Most of my favorite bands/artists are very melodic. I love the Beatles, Muse, Elliott Smith, the Psychedelic Furs, and the Killers, just to name a few.
#8 - My dream is to become a fiction writer. Most of what I write is satirical. Kurt Vonnegut is my biggest influence.
#9 - I'm from a very small town in Northern Minnesota (only 375 people). I never felt at home in small town life and have lived in Atlanta for over 2 years.
#10 -I am fascinated by psychology, particularly personality analysis and differences amongst introverts and extroverts. I am an INFJ, so if you know anything about Jung types, this will tell you quite a bit about me.
And here are the most excellent bloggers that I am nominating:
