5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Moxie wants to know 5 things people may not know about you. Here's mine:

1) I can wiggle my ears and my nose.

2) I just received my first payment for something (other than advertising copy) that I had written. Oddly, it wasn't a planned article. It began as an email and the editor wanted to turn it into an article.

3) My sophomore year, I ran for VP of the student council. I referenced this song. I ended my speech with: "I will lay it on the line for YOU!"

Note to earnest high schoolers: do not use the words, "lay," "balls," or "deep" in a campaign speech. You will be mocked. Severely.

I lost.

4) I lust to have a hidden room.

5) If you read a women's magazine in the 90s, you've probably read an ad I've written. Really purple prose about jewelry.

I've always wanted a secret room too. I had dreams about one when I was a kid. It was between the stairs to the attic. I dreamed about that many times.
and I design houses as a hobby. Some of them have secret rooms. often the entrance is in a walk-in pantry.
When I was a teen I visited a friend who's house was on a large forested property and she led me in a confusing maze-like path that ended in an underground passageway that came up in a cottage at the other end of the property from the house. That house (the main house) had a miniature balcony room too.
