Six Unimportant Things about Meme

Apprentice Writer has graduated!

After eight months in cyberspace, she has been tagged for a meme - thanks to her lovely friend Julia who maintains a tranquil, arts-filled blog for weary cyberhoppers to rest their eyes and minds. http://julia-mindovermatter.blogspot.com/

The rules are:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your blog entry.
5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

On to unimportance:

1. Though AW grew up with pets (a half dozen cats, a guinea pig, rabbit, some parakeets, one dog) and enjoyed them very much, she currently has none. It was great while her parents cleaned up after the menagerie - now that she is chief cleaner-upper, her desire for such activity is more than filled by the junior apprentice writers, thank you very much.

2. AW used to live near the Black Forest, of Hansel and Gretel Fame. Yes, the Forest is darker than most at floor level (due to high concentration of evergreens), and no, it is not filled with Black Forest Cakes. Though they would have been useful for making crumbs.

3. Though much better about eating her vegetables than during childhood, AW has never been able to make friends with Brussels sprouts.

4. Favorite household chore: taking clean laundry out of the dryer and folding. Mmmm- clean laundry smell!

5. Never needed braces. About dentures - not yet known....

6. Secret childhood fantasy: being half of a fabulously talented and popular figure skating pair, applauded by crowds and wearing cool little outfits. That, or being a female Mowgli (of 'The Jungle Book'), swinging around in the treetops with animal friends.

Now comes the tagging:
1. Tiff
2. Ely
3. Wylie
4. Amy
5. Christine
6. Rumpelstilzkin

M. - thanks for the lovely description of my blog. And your secret childhood figure skating fantasy reminds me of the 'figure skating' we used to do on my aunt's slippery living room floor with the area rug pushed back. We put on this record of 'Ukelele Lady' and did gorgeous routines. Ah, childhood...

Ah - sorry I missed this one. I was away at the end of Feb - without internet for a WEEK!! And now that I'm back I've bowed out of blogworld for a while so I can actually get some writing done. I'll catch up with this meme in April (or maybe May ;)
