A friend suggested I share some little-known facts about Liz. Here are fifteen:
When I was six, I was on a local kids’ TV program. I sat next to a dog puppet in a box.
In high school I won a composition contest. My essay “Investing a Career in Education” explained why good teachers are important and was printed in the town newspaper.
I’m a Batman fan. I grew up watching the old Adam West Batman series, and I named my teddy bear Robin. Now I like the Chris Nolan Dark Knight movies and the Gotham TV series.
I met American Idol winner Taylor Hicks in Las Vegas. He signed my CD.
I have traveled to Germany and Paris, and I ate lunch in the Eiffel Tower; but my favorite trip was to Hannibal, Missouri, to see the writing desk of author Mark Twain.
The day I got my first car, I ran into a tree. It was a small tree, and my car knocked it down.
I don’t like avocados, raw onions, or green peppers on anything.
I have never eaten sushi or gone bungee jumping, and I have no plans to do either.
My daughter took my wisdom teeth to school for show and tell.
My first blog was called lizology101, but it ended when I started howtobeasinglemom.com.
My first published short story appeared in the magazine Tattooing by Women.
For a year, I worked as a proofreader for the state legislature.
During that year, I went to work one morning with gum in my hair and didn’t notice until after I’d had an entire conversation with a coworker.
I collect owls, ceramic pitchers, and children’s books. I buy old clothes in thrift stores and cut them into pieces to make quilts. The quilt I’m making now includes old tee shirts, sweatshirts, and a pair of jeans.
I am grateful for my family and friends who support my dreams. I want to know more about my readers and would love for you to leave a comment with a few fun facts about yourself.
What are you grateful for? What are the happy memories that have made you who you are?
