7 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

1. Instead of having children, Mr Misc and I plan on adopting greyhounds. We even picked out names for them.

2. As an undergraduate student, I had the opportunity to work with the art collection at our university museum, cataloging more than one hundred works by Milton Bancroft. It was such a major undertaking that I held onto my copy of the notes for years, just in case anything happened to the museum’s records.

3. I’m named after a character from the soap opera Dark Shadows.

4a. I am terrified of bears.
4b. I think sharks are fascinating.
4c. This makes my husband think I’m loony.

5. My family used to raise, breed, show, and train Brittanys, a wonderful and very hyper type of hunting dog. During the late ’80s and early ’90s, we crisscrossed the Midwest going to various shows and trials, and, at one point, had as many as 13 dogs (including a litter of puppies).

6. Random wedding trivia: My husband and I will celebrate our 7th anniversary in five months. Barefoot, we exchanged titanium wedding bands (made by Arnell Workshop) on the Gulf of Mexico. I wore an indigo dress and had a veil made of chainmail (by Heidi at Silver Tiger Art).

7. Today, I had cookies for breakfast. My mother, obviously, didn’t teach me a lot about nutrition and balanced diets, but she did teach me about simple pleasures. Mmmm, cookies.

Thanks to Susan Donley, who tagged me for this meme. In return, I tag Christiane, Diane, Cassidy, Kristi, Sarah, Heidi and Amy, all of whom I enjoy following on Twitter. Also, if you knew any of these tidbits about me already, also consider yourself tagged!

Thanks for reading!

    Cookies for breakfast!! YAY! Isn’t it great being an adult and flagrantly deciding to disregard all the nutrition rules “they” prescribe? Sometimes I start a meal with dessert just to make sure [horrors!] I don’t get too full of dinner to eat dessert! Not that that happens too often, but you can’t be too careful, I always say!

    Thanks for sharing your 7 Things! I’m really enjoying learning more about my fellow Tweeples than I can learn just 140 characters at a time.

    Hi, I came across this blog that included you mentioning that spent a lot of time cataloging Milton Bancroft’s work. He was my dad’s grandfather. I was wondering if you could tell me where that was that you were doing the cataloging and anything else that you might know about the man. Thanks, Monty Bancroft

    Hi, I came across this blog that mentioned cataloging Milton Bancroft’s work. He was my father’s grandfather. Can you tell me where you did this cataloging ? Do you know where all those images are that he made ? Thanks. Monty Bancroft
