25 Random Things About Me

I was tagged on Facebook, so I wrote 25 random things about me. Mario suggested I put it up here so here it is. Those of you who have been following my blogs for the last many years already know most of it, but you may learn something new. Feel free to add your own 25 random things about you.

1. I’m thinking of changing my name and identity to Lily Crow.
2. The above freaks out my sweetheart, Mario Milosevic.
3. I was never going to get married.
4. I have been married for twenty-eight years.
5. Someday I want to write a big thick juicy gothic novel.
6. I watch too many movies.
7. I write too many words.
8. I love.
9. I want to live in a kind of hacienda and invite writers, artists, environmentalists, and refugees of all kinds to find sanctuary there with me when they need it.
10. I worship the ground I walk on.
11. I worship the ground you walk on.
12. I still like listening to Led Zepplin.
13. My most embarrassing vice is that sometimes I like zoning out to New Age music.
14. I talk to faeries.
15. I talk to the wind, the trees, the clouds, the crows, the deer...
16. Some days I don’t believe in anything.
17. Some days I believe anything is possible.
18. I have studied folk healing and indigenous healing for over 15 years now.
19. I once kept mice out of our house by bargaining with them.
20. I get my stories from characters who step into my life and tell me their stories. Really.
21. I once wrote a 300 page novel in three weeks.
22. I don’t like chain letters.
23. I continued a chain letter once twenty-five years ago before I knew what they were, and I actually thought I’d get rich from it.
24. I decided to become a writer rather than an artist when I was five years old because I thought it would be easier to make a living as a writer.
25. I have never made a living as a writer.

I dunno if I said this before, but I like Lily Crow. You should check out the number of places the name could be from, because you don't want anyone saying you're pretending to be Ojibway or something. But I suspect it could come from several places, so all is good.

Heck, Lily's bio could include the place her name is from.

I think if I'm renaming myself, I can call myself anything I want. I take the name Crow from the flying creatures who speak to me everyday. I am definitely from the culture of the crow. And they think it's wonderful!

I changed my name legally 12 years ago ... the whole deal, first, middle and last names. After it was done, the lawyer who handled it for me said, "Now your name fits who you really are." If you really want to do it, go for it. :)

As to No. 19, I remember one time when I was living in New Orleans, we had a serious cockroach infestation (the little bugs, not the big water bugs.) I hate using pesticides, but in this case it seemed inevitable.

I wanted to give them a chance to leave on their own, so a couple of days ahead of time, I told them what was going to happen and suggested they move on immediately. I also noticed there were some spiders living near where the bugs were.

Don't you know, by the next morning the spiders had all packed up and left. (The bugs didn't take the hint, unfortunately.)

You know me -- never could live my life on the EtherNet -- but my 25 things are on Facebook.
BTW, I always loved Mickey Souris!
