8 little known facts about me...

Jan tagged me, and because I like her, I'll play along. I'm so accomodating. :)

1. I'm actually very shy. No, really. Stop laughing. I fake it, because I'm embarrassed about being shy, but I really really really really am uncomfortable around people I don't know very well. I tend to do and say stupid things around those people because I'm so dang scared.

2. Even though I talk all the time about killing people, especially in books, I have never successfully accomplished it in my own stories.

3. I often fall asleep reading my Bible and praying. Ooops, there went all your thoughts on how "spiritual" I am.

4. I prefer British grammar and punctuation to American, even though I have never been to England, except to change planes. I did, however, spend most of my formative years reading books published in England.

5. I seldom initiate conversations, even with my friends. I'm fine once the conversation has been initiated, but I'll sit around awkwardly until someone gets the ball rolling.

6. I actually liked Scarlett O'Hara as a heroine.

7. I adore classical music, especially Beethoven and Bach, but can't identify any of the symphonies by name.

8. I have an irrational fear of most children's show characters. Most of them give a creepy vibe and I suspect them of being predators. Which is the real reason I don't allow my children to watch certain shows.

As always, feel free to play along. Let me know if you've played, so I can learn something new about you!

We totally have 1, 3, and 5 in common. LOL I always feel so bad about 3, though. I need to move my Bible study to a time when I'm not in bed but it's the only time of the day when there aren't any outside influences distracting me...unless you call sleep and outside distraction!

I feel bad about it too, but I'm praying I'll get better!

If you are indeed the Danica from WFTJ, then I wouldn't have guessed that you are shy. You were very nice to sit by me the day I attended, so I wouldn't be sitting alone.
I used to be painfully shy. I faked it. And now it only strikes in certain circumstances. The rest of the time, I am making up for lost time! blab blab blab :)

Kay, it was easy to talk to you because I felt like it was so hard to be there in a strange setting and I figured you felt the same way, so I should probably make you feel better. If that makes sense.

I know how hard it is to be the new person, so I try to be nice to the new person because that's how I'd want to be treated.
