Five Things About Me meme

I've been tagged by Krystalline Apostate at biblioblography for the Five Things About Me meme. I have five blogs and by looking at those one can tell quite a bit about me. I am a wife, mother, writer, graphic artist, photographer, painter and amateur astronomer and am interested in world religions and mythology. Let me see if I can think of some things that I haven't mentioned yet:

* I was lighting/sound director/stage manager for a nearby university theater company 2000 - 2001 during the time I was finishing my Masters at that same institution. It was one of the most fun experiences of my life.

* I played the part of an attendant in a stage production of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."

* I have more than 40 penfriends in 25 countries. England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy, Greece, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, India, Uganda, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, and the U.S. of A. I have met one from Sweden in person. She and her husband came to stay with us for a few days last year and now it's my turn to go there. I have spoken with several on the telephone and email many of them often (in addition to snail-mail letters). Having these international friends has enriched my life tremendously.

*I have an exotic pet -- a 6-year-old Bearded Dragon named Miller who is a female lizard with a guy's name because when we got her and named her, we didn't know he was a she. She's a sweetie. I never thought I could love a lizard, but I do. My son gave her to me four years ago, which I write about HERE.

*I have traveled with my husband and kids to 42 states, many more than once and camped when we visited. Also, Canada and Mexico. (And with three kids in tow.) I have many stories to tell about those experiences!

As for tagging people to do this, I think I will just tag whoever happens to read this. :-) So, consider yourself tagged!

Better hope she doesn't get preggers out of the blue - or there's going to be SERIOUS repercussions. Hehehehe.

What if they duck? ;)
Cool stuff. I'm a bit of a fan o' the Bard, meself.

ka - Chicago has a Shakespeare-in-the-round" theater on Navy Pier" and it's very impressive. I have been to a couple of Shakespeare productions there and the actors come right out into the and out of back doors. This brings the whole audience right into the middle of the play.

Yes, you have done many impressive and cool things in your life Stardust. It's too bad you are still going to burn in hell for all eternity for not accepting Jesus Christ as your personal lord and savior!*

* Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

I know tommy, I am such a bad person. ;)

But the mass murderer who accepts jeebus at the end of his life is going to heaven.

Thanks for the Tag. I was wondering how the whole tag-meme thing worked. As to strange pet names my wife and I inherited a cat called Fluffy, a shorthaired grey ie not Fluffy
