Share 7 random facts about yourself.
Pass the word along to 15 deserving blog buddies.
Contact those buddies to congratulate them.
What?? Just 7 random facts? I'm totally random. Well, I'll restrain myself and give you all just a taste of my sheer randomness:
1. I love lavender ice cream. And candy. And martinis. I can't say why, but that is one tasty little flower.
2. Speaking of flowers, my first major in college was Botany.
3. Speaking of Botany, I spent a month traipsing around the rain forest in Costa Rica. Ya'll would not believe the stuff that grows there.
4. When I was in fifth grade, I wanted to become the first woman to land on mars. Seriously. I read every book the library had on the subject.
5. Plus I wanted to save the planet. Still do.
6. I've spent time on four continents. Not did time, spent time. As in touristy time. Or ex-pat time.
7. One more random fact? Just one? Okay: I started writing my first novel when I was eight, and didn't start another until umpteen (***insert fantastical number here***)later.
