Seven random facts about me

Thanks to Helen, I'm Versatile again!

The rules of acceptance are: I must admit to seven random facts about myself, pick more people to receive the award.

1. Both of my thumbs are double jointed.

2. I don't like ketchup.

3. My feet are size 11-EEE. Make of that what you will.

4. I once skinned, quartered and butchered a full-grown doe using my pocket knife.

5. For whatever reason, I hate calling people up and talking on the telephone. Goes for Skype, too.

6. I have a mission statement for my writing, but I don't have a five year plan for my writing career. I do have a one year plan, but it's in shambles.

7. I drive a car with a manual transmission, something that is quite rare in the U.S.

In turn, I now bestow this award onto Icy Sedgwick, Maria Kelly, and, what the heck, Neil Gaiman, if only for his essay on the defense of icky speech.

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. I'm double jointed too, and I also hate calling people on the phone/Skype.

    Size 10-EEE.

    I know a few people in the US who drive with a manual transmission. Who are you hanging around with? ;)

  2. My daughter is double jointed and it's creepy. She can bend her fingers in disgusting directions.

    And I want to know what your mission statement is. I used to be really good about writing my goals down, but I haven't done that with my writing either. I think it's time I should.

  3. Red: Let the wide-footed unite!

    Danni: My mission statement is: "I will always leave the reader wanting to come back for more."

  4. I love it, Tony!

  5. Thanks for the award, Tony. Interesting facts. I have double-jointed elbows. Not much a fan of phones, either, even though I tend to make my living on them. :)

  6. You don't like ketchup! I drive a manual car too.

    Interesting statements Tony - I like your mission statement. I don't have one or a plan - perhaps I should. ^_^
