Seven Things

Fashion Plates catalogue
Recently, my friend, co-founder of the Golden Ears Writers and Gothic author, KT Wagner tagged me in her blog. The tag was a challenge to post “7 Thing About Me” and nominate seven people to carry it on.

Here goes: Seven Things About Me

1. When I was growing up I made my own catalogue using Parker Brothers Fashion Plates.

2. I collect silhouette pictures.

3. I am an avid family historian.

4. I have an uncanny ability to identify little known Canadian actors.

5. I have too many hobbies.

6. I am a chocoholic.

7. I met my hubby while doing archery.

Now for my tags.  (I didn’t check with everyone first, so please just ignore me if you don’t have time for this.)

Link back to the person who nominated you.
List 7 Things about yourself. Can be anything you want.
Nominate 7 other people.

I nominate:

Annette Fulford, Canadian War Brides of the First World War

M. Diane Rogers,  CanadaGenealogy, or, 'Jane's Your Aunt'

GT, Progress Developer

Messy Chic

The Fortress of Verisimilitude 

Daily Zen

Darren Durupt, Geek on a Bike .... coming soon


  1. I love number one! And the visual aid! Thanks for keeping this going, Andrea.


  2. Am I supposed to post here or on my blog? Oh well, here goes. I'm trying to think of stuff you don't already know about me. Which is quite a large amount.

    (1) I have a deathly dislike, really more like a fear, of cold water.

    (2) I had a traumatic bike accident experience on October 30, 2012. But now I have a brand new bike!

    (3) I will never, ever vote NDP. And I wish all the pipeline protesters would take a look at the pipelines that THEY depend on.

    (4) In a business sense, I think small things are always better than big. And I basically hate the government and always will. See #3.

    (5) My favorite book of all time is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. But, Poisonwood Bible and Green Mile are close seconds!

    (6) I think JavaScript and web development in particular is a complete and total clusterf***.

    (7) One of my life goals is to spend a ton of time in Africa and either fly or motorcycle all over it.

    So there!

  3. I just discovered #1 the other day when I got it out for Meaghan and it made me laugh.
    Thanks Greg, you could post it on your own blog and keep it going, but only if it interests you. You really loved Africa!


  4. I loved Fashion Plates!!
