Martin Heavisides has invited me to a game of revelation tag.

These are the rules: 1. The rules must be posted by each participant at the beginning of the post.
2. Each player posts 8 facts about himself/herself.
3. Tagged parties post their own 8 items in a blog, and post these rules.
4. At the end of the blog, each player or 'tagee' must post the names of eight people s/he is tagging in turn.
5. And inform said tagees by e-mail, telegraph wire or telepathy if blessed with such ability, but in any case inform them or they'll have trouble participating.

Here are my random facts:

My Catholic school didn't have speech therapists, and I had a bi-lateral list until I was 28, when a drama teacher traded me speech therapy for movement classes for his acting students. He taught me exactly where to put my tongue when I made certain sounds. I practised night and day and after three weeks the lisp was gone! Somewhere in Wyoming a TV station may still have a tape in which I lisp (earlier interview) when I first appear, and I don't when I'm interviewed live.

I remember walking around my family's new house when it was under construction and wondering how we were going to live without a roof. I was 2 and a half.

I'm much more gullible than I let on.


I've never been any good at sarcasm, and have only just learned not to be intimidated by those who are.

Eight, huh? When I auditioned for Juilliard, I slipped at the beginning of my solo and slid under the judge's table. i think that's why i got in. They remembered me.


i would like to fall in love again. No, I like to think I would like to fall in love again.


I stayed drunk the entire year of l981. I haven't had an alcoholic drink since january of l982, So it goes...

I never expected to become so fond of certain people who I know only through my computer. I'm a little uneasy that they'll disappear. I hope not.

i've tagged: Diana Ferraro, Marie Lynam Fitzpatrick, Becky Soto, Frank O'Connor, sj sumner, Mike Woof, Yvette Nmi Managhan

Here are my random facts:

When Nonnie invited me to play and I realized I had to tag others, I had to think, who do I know? Or in this case, who loga onto the net and checks their e-mail accounts less than once a week.

I lived in the South of Spain and the UK for a number of years. I'm always amused by this as neither of the countries would have appealed as a place to live when I was growing up in the sixties and seventies. However Oxfordshire is truly beautiful and Spain is a multicultural experience.

I claim ownership on a 27 year old daughter and a coming-up 25 year old son-they'll never escape, LoL.

I'm self employed and always have been, I've never held down a regular job, always reckoned the hours were too-short.

I live in Co. Longford which is a small but lovely Irish County. As a working writer-I love the fact that so many other writers and artists walked these streets before me.

I was married for 14 years and I'll be single for 14 years next year.

I sometimes feel like saying why didn't someone warn me when things go awry as I know it's all happened before.

We had snow and hailstones yesterday July 27th 2007. Even for Ireland that's mad, though they're in dire straits in the UK at the minute.

I'm tag.

Vivianne Margaret Fitzpatrick, Geraldine Mannion, Sandy Smollen, Peter Gilkes, and Mandy Hawe
