Naughty Secrets IMG_0781

Do you have anything that no one knows about you. It doesn’t have to be a secret – though, if you feel the need to share your scandalous secret here, we would love to hear it. 😉 I am not sure if I can think of anything that no one knows about me. I am just really not that interesting! However, I can think of some things that the majority of people don’t know about me.

Secrets: AKA Things You Don’t Know About Me

1) I was never a pet person until I got my pets as an adult. Now I would definitely consider myself a pet person. I have 2 dogs, 4 cats and a turtle and I love, love, love all of them,

2) I love all kinds of  music. I worked as a deejay at a country music radio station for 8 years and, because of that, many people mistakenly believe that I ONLY like country music. Some even go further and think that I only like classic country music. Not so. I love it all.

3) I don’t want a credit card. I don’t want that debt. I don’t want that temptation. And I don’t care what people think of someone who doesn’t have a credit card. Now, if only I could convince the incessant telemarketers who keep calling my house insisting that I do, in fact, want need a credit card. I’m good. Thanks anyway.

4) I read The Stand by Stephen King while I was in intermediate school. It only took me 2 weeks. I am really proud of how fast I read that – especially considering how lazy I have been with reading lately. So, I just wanted to throw that out there.

5) I started blogging out of boredom. I was in an accident and really injured my leg which left me almost totally immobilized for month. Blogging had never really crossed my mind before and I surely didn’t think you could pay bills by doing it. Who would want to read anything I had to say? Anyway, one thing led to another and here we are. And I wouldn’t change a thing.

  3. The Stand is one of my favorite books!

    • Mine too! I just read my 2nd favorite Stephen King book last year – 11/22//63. I have read several other books by him, but it took that many years to find another book by him that was almost as good as The Stand.


      • Have you ever read Under the Dome? That’s another really great one of his.

        • No, I haven’t. But my husband has and he says it is fabulous. I hope to read it this year. I am currently working on Duma Key and have been for quite some time. It is good, I am just not in the “reading mood.”


  4. That’s so cool you were a deejay! I love all music too- including country 🙂

  8. I am a multitude of things…lol, but for the most part, I pride myself on being ethical and loyal.

  9. I love this challenge and I love getting to know you better. Sometimes as bloggers we only insert a little about ourselves into things like reviews, so I love any excuse to share and learn more. I’m totally wanting to do this challenge too!
