Six unimportant things about me, as requested by Little P. Bear with me, I'm not really awake yet (I don't know why I'm sleeping so hard and so long, lately -- not that I'm complaining, understand), and I haven't had my coffee.

But first, the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Include the rules.
3) List 6 things or habits of no real importance about yourself.

1. When I was a baby, I teethed on green onions (scallions). My mother told me I loved them. I still love them. Hot and sour soup isn't complete without them.

2. I have small feet. Until about 2001, I wore a size 5 with an AAAA width. Now I wear a 6.5, with an AA width. I ginherited my feet from my Irish Grandmother who, at 4'9" tall and 95 lbs., wore a size 3. I swear she was of the Faery folk.

3. Have I ever mentioned that I hate wind... Well, as much as I hate wind, I love rain or snow. I love weather that other people think of as depressing, unless I've planned a back yard party or a picnic! I especially love thunder storms, as long as we're not in a tornado watch!

4. I lived in Brighton, England for a while in the late 70s and I loved it. I miss my old pub, the Newmarket Arms, and walking everywhere. I loved it there. Wish I could locate my old friend, Liz.

5. I really enjoy accounting and I keep meticulous records of my clients' accounts in Quick Books. I love setting up sales journals and GL codes... all that. Must come from the 20 years I spent in the accounting departments of various companies and corporations. I hated the corporate world, but I loved my work.

6. When I compose, I don't use a computer until the piece is done and I want to convert it to midi so that I can hear it. I prefer to sit at the piano with all of my Black Wing pencils and Marvy felt tip pens, rulers, and manuscript. I enjoy the craft of writing all of those notes and stems. I don't like scoring the paper, though. I wish I had someone to do it for me, but I like the pages to look uniform, entirely in my own hand.

If you want to use this on your blog, feel free!


  1. You are having way too much fun with that built-in webcam. LOLOLOL!!

  2. I am exactly the same as you about both weather and accounting. Hate wind. Love rain. Find thunderstorms exciting as all get-out. I took accounting in college and it was one of my favorite classes ever. So tidy.

    Not feet, though. You could probably put both of your feet into one of my gunboats.

  3. I think the things you told are important. I learned some neat new things about you!!!
