I found this Crazy Eights meme and lifted it off of someone else’s blog. (with my own answers of course). It helps on a day where I feel a bit worked over by my work and want to write but can’t keep my head straight.

Eight things you don’t know about me:

1. I am afraid of the dark when I am in the woods
2. My favorite meal is grilled cheese on sourdough with Grey Poupon
3. Some days, when the girls are in school and it is rainy or snowy, I will set aside house chores and work and make a cappuccino and watch tv for a few hours. This happens about once every few months. And I am not afraid to admit it
4. When I was 21, I slept with a real cowboy.
5. My close friend in high school, who is now a boxing trainer in Los Angeles, defended me in high school from a guy who was harassing me on campus every day. He beat the crap out of him. It is the only time anyone ever defended me after being slapped in the face. It’s the only time anyone ever had the opportunity to defend me.
6. I have never smoked pot. Or done any drugs.
7. I like drunk sex as much as I like sober sex. They each have their own place and time. I find that they can both be as intimate as each other.
8. Since we’re on the subject, sex during the day is my favorite, the kind where after, you can lie around for hours and talk and laugh in bed before finally going out for a meal. I love that. It hasn’t happened in a really really long time.

Wow, this went downhill fast, didn’t it?
