Six random things about me....

1 -- I don't always follow directions well. [duck]

2 -- I started reading historical romances when I was twelve, joined the Society for Creative Anachronism when I was eighteen, and majored in history (emphasis medieval Europe) at university. One of these days I'll write a historical of my own, but I know how much time and effort it'd take to do a really good job and it's been a bit daunting so far. [wry smile]

3 -- I met my husband over the internet, playing an online fantasy RPG back in '89. (Yes, they had multi-player online role-playing games back in '89 and even earlier, although to listen to the MMORPG people brag, you'd never know it.) We lucked out when it turned out we were both in the same state, only 400 miles apart. We got married in '96 and our honeymoon was at the Los Angeles WorldCon. (We're both into SF as well as computers and history.)

4 -- I love spinach, and have since I was a little kid. I only like it cooked, though, not raw.

5 -- Despite being female, I'm a dog person. ;) The cat in our house belongs to my husband; she and I cordially despise one another.

6 -- I learned to knit when I was three and crochet when I was six (taught by my grandmother and mother respectively) and have taught myself some unknown number of other needlework techniques since. I go through phases of being really into one or another needlework projects, then will put it down for a while, sometimes for years. I'm currently between phases.

Tagging whoever feels like doing it. :D

Very interesting. Lana and I met role playing online too, although she was in Canada and I in Louisiana. We got together anyway.

Charles -- Good for you and Lana. :D I've made a lot of great friends online and my husband is only the best and closest.
