My friend, Erin, across the Pond at, nominated me for an Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Apparently, she doesn’t know me that well, but hey, I can go with it. Particularly since there’s a luscious, virtual strawberry cake involved. Now that I’ve finished it off, I’m turning my sticky fingers to my keyboard to FOLLOW THE RULES: Post my own 7 Random Facts About Myself and nominate 10 others. Here they are…

  1. I sleep with three pillows, preferably four. One goes over my head when dawn comes streaming through my window. I have no love affair with morning.
  2. The resulting bed-head hair is pretty ridiculous. My husband laughs, and calls me Anne Burrell (Food Network lady with crazy hair that stands on end).
  3. I prefer pants with an elastic waist. Life’s too short to not breathe.
  4. My favorite candy is anything in dark chocolate. If it’s a salty nut, I’m in heaven.
  5. I adore movies. When I write, I see my stories as movies, playing out in my head. Along that vein, I listen to soundtracks as I write. The last movie we went to see was “Tin Tin,” and I’m dying to see “Sherlock Holmes” and “War Horse.” I like to see the epic movies on the big screen; anything else can be via DVD.
  6. We’ve lived in the same suburban house for fifteen years. We might live here forever. I hate the thought of moving! Although I sometimes fantasize about a condo and no need for gardening/care of the exterior of the home. And a jacuzzi tub. Yeah. That’d be cool.
  7. People call me “sweet,” but I think of myself as pretty tough. I’m a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is, don’t-play-games kinda girl. But I like to be kind to everyone I meet.

Now, it’s my turn to nominate 10 others…
