I Would Like to Thank the Academy…

But more specifically, I would like to thank Intelligent Life for this honor. It was such a pleasure when I first realized that other people besides my mother read this blog. The questions, comments, and dialogue are what I enjoy the most. I love having a discussion or disagreement about various literary topics with all of the commenters on my posts. Secondly, everyone should visit the aforementioned blog, Intelligent Life. It’s of course intelligent and always an interesting read. This acknowledgment comes with some rules…

Seven Random Things About Myself

  1. Whenever Billy Idol’s”Dancing With Myself” comes on, I dance (with myself).
  2. I generally don’t like books without plots (sorry Samuel Beckett).
  3. I once worked for a dog food company.
  4. It took me a very long time to spell the word definitely correctly.
  5. I hate when people jingle their keys.
  6. I’ve had tonsillitis, laryngitis, and bronchitis.
  7. I can barely add and subtract–don’t ask me to split the bill.


Thanks again to Intelligent Life and to everyone who comments on this blog. It keeps me on my toes!



  1. Was wondering in reference to the Beckett comment, have you read anything by Pinter? Beckett tends to be a little jarring sometimes, but the short plays are really quite fascinating ( I suppose, more when you see them on stage!)

    1. I’ve never read Pinter or Beckett’s plays either. I’ve only read a handful of Beckett’s “novels.” I have a friend who is constantly trying to convince me that I really do like Beckett, I’m just not aware of it. However, I’m convinced that Hell must be a place where you are taking standardized tests and reading Beckett’s trilogy on loop.

  2. Congrats and thanks for listing me 🙂 As for your random facts, I sing in a cover band and Dancing with Myself is one of my favorites to perform. Now whenever I do, I’ll think of your blog!
