5 random things about me

I was tagged by Kelly to do this meme. So here it goes...
5 random things about me:

1. I have an uncontrolable urge to grow plants. Even when I've been sent to hotels or such for a week, or go camping for a couple days, some type of plant/plants ends up on the windowsil/next to tent within a day or two, a cutting in a glass, a pot of african violets, something!

2.Along with plants, I also obtain weird seed pods and rocks and sticks and other random nature things.
One time, near Cork, I had collected several pretty yellow sea snail shells, they ended up on the windowsil. The next morning, a few of them had crawled away all over the walls. So we had to bring them back to the place we found them!
Another time, in Claire, we found an old sheep's skull (or was it a goat?) and a possible meteorite.

3. I like toys: Yoyos, tops, Plushies, puppets, music boxes, female action figures (I have a Diana Troy and a Rippley), wind-up toys, plastic figures, dolls, Barbies, anything that animates or moves is super cool.

4. I played an online role playing game for many years. My favorite characters were: a dryad named Salix, an orc named Zaal'Ug, and a pixie named Viola. I never played a human.
Zalli was married to Zur'Goth, he was the clan's warboss.

5. I once lived in NYC's lower east side without electricity or a stove for a year. The only thing I missed was hot herb tea. Evenings were lit by candles, and I had a little tape player powered with a big battery. I ate a lot of yogurt and fruit during that year for some reason.

I'm so glad you did it. I think it is cool to learn random things about people.

I think it is very cool that you have such a knack with plants. Chris has told me that you would pick little sprigs from here and there and put in your pocket to start a plant at home.

I love that your character was married to the clan's warboss!

When did you live in NYC? A whole year of that is a long time!

Thanks for sharing :)

Sally I love your Salle story and yr. blog per ce. 'The Crocus Rose' in good soil will exceed 6'x 6' and still growing, is totally desease resistant and continuously flowering and I won 1st prize with it at our local ag. show. If I may suggest, if you don't have 'Heritage' and '√Ābraham Darby' you haven't lived. Heritage is shell pink with translucent porcelain petals and almost thornless. One can never have enough roses!
