I was tagged by the well-heeled kazzy_cee (inside joke), to tell 6 things about myself, and tag 6 people to do the same. Why six? I don't know, but what the heck. :-) Being lazy and not good at remembering LJ cut, I simply tag anyone who has the time and/or interest to do the same. I shall now try to find 6 things most people don't know about me that are not embarrassing and/or sexual in nature, but that are still personal enough to be of some interest:


Um ....

Gee, this is hard.

1. In high school everyone thought I got great grades because I studied so diligently in class and study hall, when I was really writing stories. (On a related note, in a science fiction story I once killed off a character I'd based on myself!)

2. I absolutely love doing model photography, and as a result have developed some interest/knowledge of women's clothing (not wearing it -- shooting it.)

3. I joined the fire department on my 18th birthday, just months after the department's age limit was lowered from 21 to 18, thus becoming our youngest regular member ever. (That makes my last birthday my 26th anniversary on the department.)

4. The only time one of our fire trucks was ever in a serious accident, I was in a rear passenger seat (and sported a huge bruise on my lower back for weeks). The rescue truck drifted right and into a deep ditch, taking out an electric pole and narrowly missing a concrete culvert. Ever since then, I can't ride in that truck without getting scared. But I do anyway, which I suppose means that's the bravest thing I do on the department.

5. I once fell in love with a girl almost two decades younger than me. She never knew.

6. I've been getting treatment for Seasonal Affected Disorder (wintertime blues) for several years now.

*whew* It's hard to come up with stuff I haven't already talked about that isn't too embarrassing to talk about. I think I treaded a fine line in a few cases.

I found I got to about 4 things, and then it got hard to think of something! But thank you for taking the time!

LOL at the 'inside' joke!!! I am soooo well heeled!

I thought you'd appreciate that! :-)

Hehe, I feel your pain. Thinking up 6 things is surprisingly hard.

So photography, huh? Would be interesting to see some of your work.

Well, all the fire pics I've posted were taken by me, as well as various pictures I've posted here and on "Where I live day" at wild_photos:
And this icon was taken by me! :-)

However, I'm not in contact with any of my former models, and didn't get permission from any of them to post their pictures on the internet, so I can't show you those. My youngest and I are hatching a plan to turn the living room into a part time photo studio, which means I might have some modeling photos to show you in the future, providing I can find models willing to be photographed for no more payment than prints. I hope so -- I'd really like to get into it again.

Paid or volunteer, being a firefighter isn't just a job. It gets into your blood, like an incurable disease!

Actually, I've been on my full time job, for the Sheriff's Department, for 15 years now. I can't say it's the love of my life, but I've had a lot of jobs that were much, much worse.

I blab too much, so I don't think there are 6 things about me that people don't already know. They are usually ready to pay me to stop telling them things ! 8P

Did you see that Four Friends has been nom'd at the Forbidden awards?

an awarding feeling
I'm just now starting to go through my e-mails for the last day or so, but sexymermaid and I had been discussing the site and she told me I'd gotten a nomination. I was surprised since I'd just been mentioning to her that most of the forbiddenawards are more for the ship and sexy stuff, while I tend to be rather dull and fluffy in comparison. But, as she said, the gen category's there. Maybe this is someone's way of thumbing their nose at my opinion!
