A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

I think I've been tagged 25 times

So, for everyone on Facebook or around the blogosphere who's interested, here's some random facts you may not know about me. (Yes, I know I'm *supposed* to do 25, but I don't wanna.) And because I like a little order in my randomness, each fact will be a response to someone else's random fact about themselves, so you can not only get to know ME a little better, but you'll get to know some of my friends. I'm tricksy like that.

1. The first live concert I ever saw was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. My older sisters asked me to wait on line with them to get as many tickets as possible, and after I did all that, my dad made them include me. (via Kiki)
2. I was named after my mom, who had three girls before me and refused to name them after herself, but I suspect she ran out of names by the time she got to me. My confirmation name is the feminine form of my brother's name, and I had to have a little conversation with the nuns in order to take in. (via Jenna)
3. I'm really bad at cursing. I was playing an RPG once with friends and my character was supposed to be cursing up a blue streak, and all I could come up with was "Gimme another plate of this sh***y food." Yeah, they still make fun of me for that. (via Jen)
4. I prefer beer to wine, and though I like Guinness, I only drink it in Ireland (via Jeanine)
5. I loved living in a foreign country after college, and would love to do it again sometime -- a small cottage on the west coast of Ireland with wifi sounds divine. Something near Galway or Doolin. (via Stefania)
6. I performed off-Broadway in a pirate show. I was Anne Bonny and got to swing a cutlass. I miss stage combat A LOT. (via Lionel)
7. I think I wasted almost $200 on plants this year for the garden. I'm not used to planting things in the ground, and I;m horrible about watering things in pots. i can promise to be better about it next year, but is it worth it? (via Misa)
8. I always cry when I watch "White Christmas." (via Rachel)
9. I used to sneak trashy romance novels into my textbooks in middle school, and totally got caught in math class. (via Teresa)
10. I once had a dream and woke up knowing exactly what tattoo I would get if I ever got one, but I don't know if I ever would. I'm too indecisive and changeable to commit to one design on my body for the rest of my life. I love wearing temporary tattoos though, and getting henna. (via Janice)

For all that I love shoes...

Guess who's the one who leaves his all around our room?

Still here!

It's a funny thing about this blog. Before, I couldn't use it to write work-related posts, or had to hide work news in vague details. So, I was more personal, and blogged regularly.

And now, when I have an official work blog (http://www.ktliterary.com/daphne.html, or you can subscribe here), this blog languishes, as I spill all my words on work stuff! Wacky!

I'm not giving up here, though. I'm sure that the time will come again when I want to post more personally, and share details about my life that remain vague on my work site. So ktbuffy a-go-go continues to go-go -- although my posts here continue to be cross-posted to Facebook, so there remains some sense of keeping things a little private. I have to see if I can pick and choose which notes from here get posted there -- I think it's possible. I will explore.

Because, clearly, I just can't quit you, internets.
