Five Things You Probably Don't Know About Me

Nancy Dowd (The "M" Word: Marketing For Libraries) tagged me with this meme, so here goes!

1. My paternal grandfather, Robert E. Burns, wrote the nonfiction book I Am A Fugitive From A Georgia Chain Gang which was turned into a movie, I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang. (Title change because Georgia was a bit pissed; name change of main character and other parts because at the time of the book and movie, he was still a fugitive.)

2. I am allergic to something but I have no idea what it is. Seriously, I've had an allergic reaction a few times in the last year after eating a meal, and I cannot figure out what I ate that's triggering it.

3. I don't like doctors. So when you all comment about seeing a doctor, well, that's why I haven't gone to one yet to figure out what it is.

4. If I won enough to never work again, after taking time to travel I'd go back to school just for the fun it.

5. "Cleaning my desk" is a never ending task. I think gremlins live in my house and deliberately pile up the books, the mail, the notes to myself.

My turn to tag: Mitali Perkins; Jen Robinson's Book Page; MotherReader; and Journey Woman.

Liz, in the last few years I have had serious allergic reactions while eating--it happens about 2-3 times per year. I finally narrowed it down to lettuce. I suspect it has something on it though I have never been able to track down what it is. I always carry Benedryl with me at all times just in case--and never eat lettuce when I travel!

Thanks for including me! I've just put up my list. I have mysterious allergies, too. I think there's something environmental going on...

MotherReader said...

I did my meme, with a twist. As could probably be expected.

Thanks, all!

And I've also started carrying Benadryl with me. I think it's some type of preservative that's bugging me because it happens sometimes with tomato sauce. But the last time was freaky because there was a salad that I'd had the day before, exact same ingredients, exact same dressing, and this time, chipmunk cheeks.
