25 Things You May Or May Not Know About Me

Carol Dean Sharpe tagged me with this on Facebook last week, but since everybody and their dog has done it and been tagged there, I'll put mine here. Prepare to be stunned and amazed (snort):
1. I am a native Texan and have never lived anywhere but Texas.
2. I have never been to Europe.
3. I have a Bachelor's degree in French.
4. I originally wanted to be a translator (please don't send anything in French, because you truly lose it if you don't use it).
5. I was married to a college sweetheart many years before I met T-man.
6. I have one sister who is a blue-eyed blond. The other sister, my brother and I are all brown-eyed brunettes.
7. I grew up in San Antonio.
8. I love San Antonio.
9. I want to live in the mountains of West Texas.
10. I cannot not bead for more than a day.
11. I used to rock climb, and I did it well.
12. I believe in past lives and reincarnation.
13. I used to belong to a live-action medieval role playing group, during which time I played an elf-queen.
14. The first time I saw T-man he was wearing medieval tights and tunic.
15. I have written and won small awards for short stories.
16. I have a tendency to wear my heart on my sleeve.
17. Some people think I'm snobby but that's how I try to hide my painful shyness.
18. I wish I knew how to paint.
19. I didn't realize 25 was such a big number when I started this list!
20. My first date with T-man was a spelunking trip through the worst cave in the Austin area.
21. My second date with him was when he taught me how to rock climb.
22. I am a descendant of Clan Keith. There are actually photos of my brother wearing out family tartan on this site.
23. I love vampires! Are you old enough to remember Frank Langella climbing up that wall? How about when Lestat first became popular?
24. I don't do housework.
25. I am fiercely loyal to those I love. No not like a dog, more like a lioness.

HAH! Me, in a nutshell.

Thank you for tagging me, I think! lol

I forgot about Dark Shadows. Maybe because Barabus was so old. But those werewolves . . .

26. I also love a good werewolf story! The Howling, American Werewolf in London . . .
