Five Things You Don't Know
I was tagged today by dear blog friend Mary Schmidt in what is apparently the latest blog meme going around. You are supposed to blog five things that folks don't know about you and then tag five more people. Here goes.
1. This is the first time I've ever been tagged in one of these memes. Thanks Mary. Really. As Sally Field once said, "you like me, you really like me."
2. I am a closet romantic. No surprise to anyone who reads the blog that I am a huge science fiction/fantasy fan. What you don't know is my shippy little heart. Aragorn and Arwen, Lessa and F'lar, Buffy and Spike, Mal and Inara, John and Aeryn (major swoon) and lately Starbuck and Apollo with a side dish of Adama and Roslin. (For the non-believers, Lord of the Rings, Dragonriders of Pern, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Farscape and Battlestar Galactica.) All started with LotR and Luke, Laura and General Hospital in the 70s and 80s.
3. I have a 6-foot cardboard Spike in my exercise room that my mom gave me for Christmas a few years ago. My husband keeps moving him to the basement and I keep bringing him back upstairs. At least I don't put him in the bedroom :-)
4. Bond, James Bond. When I was 12 years old, I loved Roger Moore. He was a great successor to Sean Connery as James Bond. I also thought he was great in The Persuaders with Tony Curtis, a mostly forgettable series other than the buddy chemistry between the two leads. Back to Bond: Pierce Brosnan was great.. Less said about George Lazenby and Timothy Dalton the better. Looking forward to seeing what Daniel Craig has to offer.
5. My most vivid political memories from childhood. There are two. The first is a distinct memory of watching TV in my grandparents' house and seeing the reports that Martin Luther King was dead. I don't recall the rest, but my family tells me that I came downstairs and told them that the King was dead. Since the monarch of Britain was Queen Elizabeth, they were confused. I was only six years old. The second memory is a compound - the Watergate hearings and Nixon's resignation. I was riveted. Probably part of the reason I am a lifelong Democrat.
