1. I am afraid of the dark.
This was a bit of an impediment back when I had to use an outhouse outside in the dark in the winter, and is one reason I love Alaskan summers. It also explains why I own so many flashlights and headlamps.
2. I can mimic a raven almost perfectly.
It confuses them.
3. I never sacrifice sleep.
People seem to think I give up sleep to do as much as I do, but I'm a bear without 8 hours of sleep, so I make sure I get that.
4. I love to stipple.
Most people know this about me. Most people think I'm nuts for it, but it's really very relaxing and easy to do!
5. I have a degree in engineering.
Mechanical engineering, emphasis in aerospace, minor in art. I was mechanical team leader of the student rocket project. Yes, I really am a rocket scientist.
6. I quite fandoms at the end of last year.
Cold turkey. I miss them. But I went back to work and trying to keep up with all my business stuff, my day job AND my own creative pursuits was a losing battle.
7. I used to be three inches taller.
Compression fractures of the spine will do that to a person.
8. I speak moderately fluent Swiglish.
This is a mix of Swedish, English and Pig latin that my husband and I have developed.
I'd tag people, but this meme is so old I think everyone probably already has been tagged.
