I've been tagged!!

Alex the Girl has tagged me!  I must reveal myself to you in 13 short and interesting bullets.

1.  I really relate to Edna Pontellier's character in The Awakening.  I especially understand her quote: "I would give up the unessential; I would give my money, I would give my life for my children; but I wouldn't give myself. I can't make it more clear;"  
-not sure if that's a good thing considering the end of the book, but even before I had a family, I understood the type of woman she was.... (I can't find the right words; I just feel it)

2. I feel guilty after eating at almost every meal (but that's probably because I eat the nastiest foods)

3.  You can discover all of me through my writing, especially my poetry. I know it seems like jibberish, but to me it is like i'm opening and revealing it all.

4.  I believe my biggest flaw is that I'm contradictory. If I don't agree with you, I seem to have no self control over my ability to keep my mouth shut. It could even be as petty as:
Person #1: I love this song!
Jillien: Really?!?!? I freaking hate it!

5. I read a book a day. sometimes I'll take a couple of days off, but I start right back up again. My husband hates it. 

6. I never watch TV! all because of #5. 

7. Because I don't watch TV (#6) and all i read are novels, I have no idea what's going on in the world or in the news. I had no idea that hurricane Gustav was coming until 2 days before when my in-laws were begging Lee and I to go to Tenn with them.
WHAT?! a Hurricane's a'coming?!!

8. I'm ridiculously competitive. I hate to lose, and I strive to BE the best always. (never to try my best... My best should be the best. It makes for a lot of disappointments lol)

9.  I get overly infatuated with celebrities that I find good looking.  ie. Russell Brand, Georges St. Pierre, Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, Paul Walker.  It is soooOOOooOOOOooO Sad!  I need to talk to a specialist or something.

10. The thing that first attracted me to Lee was his smile! 

11.  Growing up I always thought that I would do a play or have a performance of some kind and get discovered by some big time agent... I would spend the rest of my life performing on Broadway!   But I'm a crummy actress.

12. I've just recently read my first fantasy genre novels and COMPLETELY fell in-love! It totally opened a new realm of books for me! (Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series)

13.  I CANNOT watch violence in any way.  Those shows about when people get in accidents on skateboards or some crazy ass stunt is like TORTURE.  Even movies that are violent will cause me to have an anxiety attack.  I'm too empathetic.   On the other hand, anything sensual,sexual, erotic (NOT vulgar) intrigues me (usually in literature).  I don't get embarrassed or get turned off by PDA's.  Its weird to explain.

Well there ya go. 13 random facts about Me.... The Infamous!

  1. I am so five, six, and seven...or was until I ran out of things to read. I"m the world's pickiest reader.

    My fav. genre to read is fantasy. I am currently waiting for George RR Martin's next installment. He's fabulous, so is Robin Hobbs...she's awesome.


I love your comments!
