3 Things

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is WEB OF LIES by Brandilyn Collins.
My Monday book giveaway is SECRETS OF THE ROSE by Lois Richer.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for WEB OF LIES and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

I’m back! I just got back from RWA National conference. I’ll blog about it this week.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Camy’s blog...

Michelle tagged me:

3 things that scare me:

1. Pain (borrowed this from Michelle)
2. Bugs, especially big bugs, ones that fly, or ones with lots of legs
3. Falling

3 (groups of) people who make me laugh:

1. The SAYSFers, especially Tina Russo, Mary Connealy, and Ruth Logan Herne
2. Snarkling Clean: Robyn and Missie
3. My husband

3 things I love:

1. Reading
2. Writing
3. Blogging

3 things I hate:

1. Cleaning
2. Exercise (it’s a love/hate thing)
3. Puking (when I have a nauseated stomach, I’m so miserable I actually cry)

3 things I do not understand:

1. Writers who don’t read
2. Why I eat right and exercise and still don’t lose weight
3. Why more free time makes me less self-disciplined

3 things on my desk:

1. Books
2. Computer
3. Papers

3 things I am doing right now:

1. Blogging
2. Reading
3. Sweating like a pig, except that pigs don’t sweat

3 things I want to do before I die:

1. Travel to Great Britain and Europe
2. Get on the NYT Bestseller List (no harm in dreaming big)
3. Get air-conditioning in our house (I think I can at least accomplish this one)

3 things I can do:

1. See the high-level structural problems in a fiction manuscript (I have discovered that not many people do substantitive book doctoring like this, so now I feel special)
2. Sing and play guitar
3. Injure myself with very little effort (and two knee surgeries to prove it)

3 ways to describe my personality.

1. Loud
2. Logical
3. Blunt

3 things I can't do:

1. Ice skate, ski, or anything that involves strapping something to my feet and making my body go faster than I can walk
2. Surf (not everybody from Hawaii knows how to surf)
3. Be tactful

3 things I think you should listen to:

1. The Bible
2. Worship songs
3. God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit (like duh)

3 things you should never listen to:

1. Satan (although it’s often hard to know when it’s him)
2. A stranger who wants to give you a ride or walk you to a remote location
3. A screaming child’s demands (no patience for tantrums—I wouldn’t be a sympathetic mother)

3 absolute favorite foods:

1. Bing cherries
2. Potatoes in any way, shape, or form, although anything involving salt and fat is highly preferred
3. Cheese—practically any variety

3 things I'd like to learn:

1. Japanese
2. How to get rid of my black thumb
3. Speed reading

3 beverages I drink regularly:

1. Water
2. Tea
3. Milk

3 shows I watched as a kid:

1. Star Blazers
2. Robotech
3. Voltron

3 things I really want to do:

1. Make a million dollars
2. Lose weight
3. Get a nose stud


  1. hey! what's up with me not being on the list of people making you laugh??? LOL

  2. Ooh- get a nose stud! Theyr're cool! (and I'm not biased or anything *wink*)

  3. Welcome back, Camy! We missed you!

    Ha, I'm the same way with my free time! The more I have, the less self-disciplined I become. I think it's the procrastinator in me!

  4. Now that was a funny meme.

    I agree about the bugs...especially the ones here in North Carolina. You've never seen bugs THIS big! YUCK!

    And you'd make a great mom! Low tolerance for tantrums actually helps kids more than you think!

  5. Mmmmm. Potatoes and cheese. I love 'em!

  6. I'm lovin' your answers to these. Thanks for sharing!

  7. My hubby hates puking too!
    LOL: things not understood "why I eat right and exercise and still don't lose weight"!!

    ROFL: things you can't do "anything that involves strapping something to my feet and making my body go faster than I can walk"

    *snort, gafaw* Funny!
