Today, fill your cup of life with sunshine and laughter.

Angell tagged me and everybody knows that if you get tagged, you're it.

By the way? I dug down deep for some of these, so if you're easily shocked, DON'T GO ANY FURTHER (Dana???)

First, The Rules: We have to post these rules before we give you the facts ...

*Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
*People who are tagged write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
*At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. (note: the first 8 people who read this and heaven't yet been tagged, consider yourselves the chosen ones)
*Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog. (see, now I don't have to do that)

Now, without further ado, here's eight things about (drumroll) ... ME!

1. When I was 16, I broke my neck, between the C2 and C3 vertebrae, in a diving accident. I was lucky, because my swim coach was also a paramedic and kept me immobilized until the ambulance got there.

2. I was known as a real party girl my first two years of university. I never missed a beer garden or a house party and I guess I'm just lucky that I didn't lose my scholarship or end up pregnant.

3. I can play 22 musical instruments. I started out on the alto sax when I was 14, the piano when I was 15 and just kinda went from there. The instruments are: saxophone, clarinet, flute, oboe, bassoon, recorder, trumpet, trombone, french horn, tuba, violin, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, piano, organ, marimba, drum kit, djembe, tin whistle and bodhran.

4. I didn't own a credit card until I was 39 years old, and only got one to simplify the adoption of my son.

5. I have recently become interested in the world of BD/sM and have met some wonderful, openminded people through internet and through local groups in the past two months. I am currently in a D/s relationship and have quite fallen in love with the lifestyle.

6. I was arrested in my early 20's for skinnydipping at a public beach. It was after dark and the beach was nearly deserted, but apparently my friends and I were not the first to have the idea.

7. I grew marijuana in my parents' back garden the summer between grade 11 and 12. They never knew what it was, and I never got found out, but I became a bit of a celebrity at school because of it.

8. About 18 months ago, I discovered I have a talent for writing a specific kind of literature. I have always enjoyed reading erotica, but it took having an online lover for me to discover that I could also write it. I have had 2 short stories published, and the magazine that published them has requested more of my work.

We all make interesting choices in our lives and quite often wonder how we ever made it through.

Be safe my friend.

Ok, first the tame stuff.

You are my HERO. 22 musical instruments INCLUDING the bodhran??? Damn woman - I would LOVE to just be able to play one well. But I fell in love with the bodhran during a show called NEEDFIRE when I was an usher.

Secondly, with #'s 5 & 8, welcome to the club (although I'm not really published yet). Please consider sharing with us. There are more than you think. *wink wink*

All in all - thanks for sharing. Wish I'd been in your class in grade 11 - hehehe.
