This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at

Six Weird Things About Me

Okay, I got tagged by my friend Lindi and so I'm going to play. Below are the six weird things about me.

1) I hate to eat a banana by itself, but I love banana flavoring. I love banana pudding, banana nut cake, ice cream, etc.

2) I like to write at the wee hours of the morning when everyone is asleep and the house is quiet. It might be 2, 3, 4 o'clock a.m. If I wake up at these hours, I get on my computer and write away.

3) I hate to sit in traffic, so I will go miles out of my way just to keep moving. I have the impatient bug.

4) I go behind everyone in the house and cut off TVs, radios, lights and fans because I can't stand for something to be on when no one is in the room.

5) When I have free time, I enjoy visiting cemeteries to collect historical data on my ancestors. I take photos of them too. Check out my genealogy site at
Our Carolina Roots.

6) I have to write on my laptop instead of my desktop to keep from checking email or surfing the Web.

Hi Jennifer,
I like to visit cemetaries too, the real old ones.

My husband does the turn off the lights thing when no one is in a room - sometimes. He does this when he's not dropping his shoes wherever they fall (LOL!)
And, like you, I have to be on my laptop, because the desktop and email beckon me and first thing I know an hour has passed and is dedicated to emails/internet only! I enjoy it, but I'm not getting any productive writing done! So I move to the dining room table or couch. But pretty soon, I'm going to have to vacate the house. It's getting to where I can't think there... I know, excuses, excuses. Just write!!!

WOW! I have alot more in common with you guys than I thought.


I guess sitting at may computer trying to think of something weird about my self is weird. O.K, I guess that I don't mind living in our camper while we rebuild after Katrina, some would consider that strange. And some would consider it strange that I love to study-- which I have a lot more time to do since I don't have so much to clean anymore. I get energized when I am alone and drained when I am with people. But, don't get me wrong I love people. That I don't like to shop just to shop---now I know some would really say that was weird.
