1) I am a writer of romantic fiction. It is strange, but true. Most of the people who know me do not know I write romance novels in my free time. I really need to work on that.
2) I love BBC costume dramas, especially the ones based on books. I spend hours watching and re-watching miniseries based on Elizabeth Gaskell’s novels or multiple adaptations of Jane Austen. I own copies of almost every version of Jane Eyre filmed.
3) I indulge in reading and movie binges. Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, tomes on historical figures, Orson Scott Card, Diana Wynne Jones, I read or watch them all in spurts.
4) I am a closet introvert. Yes, I am good at the extrovert behavior. Friendly smiles, eager questions, there is that side of me. But, underneath, I am very insecure, uncertain, and scared of saying something stupid or hurtful by accident.
5) I was a weird teenager. Instead of all the rebellion when trying to find myself, I went the “different” route. I wore skirts with leggings underneath, climbed trees, and roller-skated to Disney music. Not exactly teenager behavior.
6) I dislike talking on the telephone. I much prefer a face-to-face conversation where I can read all of those non-verbal cues that are not visible over the telephone.
7) I love lima beans.
8) I like my minivan. I have wanted one from the moment we were pregnant with our first kid.
9) I am a pseudo-vegetarian. What is a pseudo-vegetarian? I don’t like most meats (fish and poultry included), but I have been known to rarely eat bacon, sausage, and an occasional hot dog.
10) I really don’t like folding laundry. I don’t mind washing it and I don’t mind putting it away, but folding it is a task I would avoid if I could.
What are aspects of yourself do others rarely see?
