I am exceedingly proud of my collection. There are some absolutely amazing artist on this site.

The only issue that I have is with the slide show's order. It's set up from newest to oldest. I wish it were more random as there are days that I'll get on some wild kind of kick and there are suddenly 12 Star Wars pics in a row (yeesh).

I Usually Don't Do This But...Tagged!

So I'm picking 10 people from my watchers list that I want to harass...uh, I mean learn more about.

My feelings won't be hurt if you don't want to participate.  I will just sit back and quietly slash my wrist... Oh wait, I mean stab my eyes out... Actually, I'll probably be ok if you don't want to.

Rules are boring, so here's my list.  (If you actually want to do this the rules are below my ramblings.)

10 Things You Don't Know About Me (and probably didn't want to know).

    1.       I have been in the social work field for over a decade—it is my calling.  I have for the last eight years been a Title XIX Waiver Service Coordinator.  I work with people with developmental disabilities and autism.  Prior to that I worked at a children’s shelter and at a place that works with adjudicated youth.  Social workers are a band of misfits and I love it.

    2.       I went to college at Shepherd University where I graduated with a Political Science/ Journalism degree.  After working on a political campaign in New Jersey for Emily’s List, I decided that politics involved one party trying to destroy the other, and it left me feeling very empty, so I ended up doing nothing in the field associated with my degree.  Also, and this is just an aside, I started out with an English Education Major.  Dropped that like a sack of hot potatoes, but did take many courses involving renaissance playwrights (Marlow, Webster, Jonson and of course the Shakespeare).  But I still hate grammar and still kinda suck at it.  Thank god for my beta reader.

    3.       I’ve traveled all over the country.  Next stop Europe.

    4.       I have a close-knit family.  I have two sons and a gaggle of godchildren.  I’m usually surrounded by kids.  Which leads me to….

    5.       I wish I had more time to write.

    6.       Fall is my favorite season.  I despise summer.

    7.       I’m chronically absent-minded.  I enjoy living in my head and have a terrible habit of staring off into space daydreaming.  (Yeah, I’ve done this while people are talking—not good.)  I play out everything I write in my head.  While writing, I often find myself speaking in my characters’ accents.  (You should see the looks I get from my husband--and from total strangers).

    8.       I try to put a positive spin on everything; though that being said, not "taking it personally" is probably the hardest bit of advice I give out (and take).

    9.       I live in a constant state of contradiction.  Example: my favorite poems are “If” by Rudyard Kipling and “The Shoelace” by Charles Bukowski.  I don’t know how that works.  Perhaps that isn’t so strange though, as most humans are a study in contradiction.

    10.   I have an odd sense of humor.

I also have a terrible toothache.  That didn't make the list, but I thought you should know.

1) Don't think just share the love!!
2) Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves
3) Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal.
4) Go to their page and inform them that they have been tagged by you. (This step seems superfluous so I'm skipping it.)
5) Not something like "You are tagged if you read that".
6) You have to legitimately tag 10 people.(+ESPECIALLY yours waifus /hasbandos/mans or your Deviant Family)
7)No tag-backs.!!!!!
8)You can't say that you don't do tags. (I won't be mad if you don't).
9)You MUST make a journal entry!
