Six Secrets / Six Tags

I've been tagged by Lilly Rose Chen to tell six secrets about myself. Anyone who reads my blog probably knows I'm not a big secret keeper. I tend to ramble on about all sorts of things and forget that I'm supposed to have any dignity... then I panic later and unpublish my embarrassing stories. So, it's a little difficult for me to come up with six real secrets but I will try...

1. Despite incontrovertible evidence to the contrary, I believe that I can learn how to do anything if I read enough books.

2. I dream of moving to a cabin in the mountains somewhere far from civilization and spending my days gardening and playing the hammered dulcimer. I don't currently garden or play the dulcimer... (see item 1)

3. Mail gives me anxiety attacks.

4. I like my nose. It's too large for my face but I like it anyway.

5. I always feel like I am an outer satellite in groups and I don't know how to get closer in. I can have enjoyable conversations and work with other people when there is a goal but on my own I am shy and awkward. I am amazed when someone introduces me as their friend.

6. My alter-ego is a mid level wizard named Fiameta in the game Maple Story. She has pink hair and can kill monsters that are a lot bigger than her.

Ok, I have to tag six people so I'm going to choose a different way to tag... Look to the right ------>
If your name is in the bottom twelve on My Blog List then it's been too long since we've heard from you and you should consider yourself tagged! If you aren't on the list then please see item 5 above.. are you like me? How do we solve this problem?

I can relate to number 5. I am not like that with everyone but I need to feel very comfortable with someone to feel a connection. Once I trust you though, I'm immensely loyal. I think you are like that too.

Oooo. I'm 4th from the bottom, eh? So you're giving me an assignment??

I'm trying to think of anything I keep a secret. I blab a lot ...

You can bring your dulcimer to the Women's Colony.

A place in the mountains,huh? I'd love that...but only if I could have groceries delivered (by young, handsome brawny dudes..flannel shirts optional!).
My alter ego? ssshhh...she's a torch singer (you know, slinky black dress, long gloves) named Lola Divine...she might also be a pole dancer in her free time.

and you know what? I like your nose. it's quite lovely, you gorgeous girl, you!
have a great weekend!!

I like my nose too--it's been broken and I had the opportunity to have plastic surgery to fix it, but I decided I'd rather have character. I've never regretted it.

This was fun. And it did seem like secrets. Too funny about later unpublishing.

I love that you love your nose.
