Eight Random Factlets

Kitty tags me

Here are the rules:
(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Ok, so facts... hmmm.

/me puts hand on hip.

I'm not doing 8 people. Not without being paid anyway...

Random Facts:

  1. WA Mozart is my favorite classical composer, John Coltrane my favorite jazz artists, Ella Fitzgerald my favorite jazz singer, Nirvana my favorite rock band and Cosmic Gate my favorite clubbing music. But I club goth. Go figure.
  2. Gold is my favorite color, especially for clothes.
  3. Pet language peeves: that/which, the m dash is not a punctuation mark, effect/affect, the lack of a you plural or third person neuter/indeterminate in English, and the use of the passive voice by anyone not wearing a collar. (And yes that last one is a giggle for me because I know it is in the passive voice... It's not my usual habit but I just got done working...)
  4. I've finished a novel this year. I didn't write fiction before that.
  5. I've done a Hillary Clinton avatar. I'm not particularly a supporter of hers.
  6. I'm a registered voter. And I vote.
  7. A Chorus Line is my favorite musical. And no I can't sing.
  8. I play bad rhythm guitar, but have met several well known guitarists. No I didn't do anything sexual with any of them.


  1. I am confused by your remark about the emdash. Can you elaborate?

    I always claim that "y'all" is an informal plural of you, but some folk insist on using y'all as a singular.

    "They" is becoming increasingly popular as a neuter pronoun but I don't like it much.

  2. I invite you to write y'all or you all in your dissertation and see what happens.
