Things About Me

I was visiting blogs yesterday and I found this rather funny one - Bunker Bitches - They appear to be kinda new to the blogosphere, why don't you all take a moment and stop by for a visit.

Also there I saw this rather intriguing list of questions to answer. There is was in a nifty little picture, but pictures really give me fits. Maybe someday I'll figure them out, but that's another subject altogether.

The post that accompanied the list of questions made it look like each question should be answered one at a time but there were no rules posted so I'm going to attempt to answer all of them all at once here. Those of you who wish may copy the questions and answer them on your own blogs. Have fun with them. I will.

Here goes:

10 Secrets

I am very selfish
I am very honest
I don't believe in lies
I may be too logical
I may be the only person I know who can keep a secret

I am a people watcher

9 Loves
I love my husband
I love my two boys

8 Fears
I fear crossing questionable ice
I fear encountering a bear along the trail
I fear getting hurt out here
I fear machines (in a way)
I fear being unable to write any more, like if the world ended and I couldn't use my computer anymore because we ran out of gas.
I fear getting some incurable illness
I fear someone will someday make it impossible for me to live the life I love
All things considered, I really have very few outright fears.

1 Picture (of me)
That one is easy, there's a new picture of me, more than one even, over on the right. There, now I don't have to try to wrestle with a picture here. haha

How very interesting Anna! I want to do this post sometime in the future. I must say that my list of "loves" will look almost identical. Thanks a ton for sharing.
