Pieter de Hooch (c. 1632-1681)
Buck House collection.
Though I'm sure I never slighted Whirlochre -- an otherwise charming and clever person and quite brilliant talent -- I have been tagged for a meme.
Chris, similarily indicted, provides an icon for those who wish hitherto to be meme free.
So, from memory, my last word:
Five place I have lived:
The backwoods ( surrounded by fierce animals), the big city (surrounded by fierce animals), a small town, in residence, ( surrounded by drunk animals) cut off by flood water while about to deliver my first child.
Five jobs I have held:
Restaurant cook, two-bit actress, library help, English teacher ( surrounded by drunk animals), forensic consultant -- some held current w/ CEO of MommyCorp.
What Was I Doing Ten Years Ago?
Cleaning up from the Ice Storm of '98 in the hours left from visiting my husband in Intensive Care.
What Would You Do If You Were A Billionaire?
Give each one of you $100,000.
Pat is holding a Tribute to Miss Snark Dear on the anniversary of that Dark Day when, despite our anguished cries of abandoment and loss, she folded her tents and slipped away.
And Nathan Bransford is holding a Dialogue Contest. It closes today. He already has over 400 entries last I looked.
I entered. I don't know why.
Quite apart from the obvious superiority of most other entries, my chief asshole and villain is named Nathan. No devious insult intended to the nice man; but, as they keep telling us, publishing is a subjective business.
