Who am I?

This is my attempt at Rachael Harrie’s 1st Crusader Challenge.

Asking a writer to come up with a bio in less than three hundred words is definitely a challenge! But I do love to write. Writing about me is NOT one of my favorite things to do, either. I do not bloviate. But I will attempt to give you one secret and one lie, while I describe an interesting quirk, my best character trait, and a favorite thing to do.
I have a fairy tale marriage. I met my husband and five days later, he asked me to marry him. A month later we were married. Twenty-one years later and we are still going strong.
I think my best character trait is also my worst. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and because I care so deeply about my friends and family, I rarely let people in.
I have a nervous tendency to play with the ends of my hair, checking for split ends. I so hate split ends, and the longer my hair get’s the more I play with it. I should go to the salon and have it touched by the blade every now and again. But, I just can’t bring myself to even a trim.
One of my favorite things to do is go outside and watch nature at its best. We watch the bees, the birds, the dragonflies, the rabbits, the armadillos and even the alligators. Someone told me I should add fuliguline watching to my outdoor activities since I like watching nature all the time. What is a fuliguline anyway?
I may have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true. Can you guess what it is?


  1. Ping from Witless Exposition:

    Good post. I'm going to guess that you let lots of people in. Usually the most tenderhearted people I know are the most sociable, too.

  2. Ping from kangaroobee:

    Oops missed this before, promise I haven't peeked. Alligators, but almost missed that, like it was an everyday thing πŸ™‚

  3. Ping from erica and christy:

    Nice to meet you! Thanks for popping by our blog. I'm really behind on the crusader thing. Great post! Christy

  4. Ping from Cleveland:

    Hey! Thought I'd get in before the big reveal. How about haircuts? That's my guess.

  5. Ping from Donea Lee:

    Popping over to say "hello" to a fellow crusader! I'm going to guess that you do know what fuliguline means…? πŸ™‚

  6. Ping from projectfraeya:

    Not quite 21 years? Hello to a fellow crusader πŸ™‚

  7. Ping from pamparker:

    I'm guessing your lie is the 21 years…..

  8. Ping from Regina:

    Really nice post. I enjoyed reading it. I am still making my way around to all the crusaders. So many things could be true that this one is hard. πŸ™‚

  9. Ping from Ann:

    Nice to meet you fellow Crusader. Your little white lie must be about your hair. I believe you check for the split ends, but someone who hates those would get their trimmed hair often….Well that is what I think for what! Weren't you the brave lady to marry in such a Whirlwind. I loved reading about your success stories. Congratulations! Staff to the pets! Haha! Love it!

  10. Ping from Madeleine:

    Awh sweet. I guess you've looked up the word flugline. Hubby and I have been married 21years too :O)

  11. Ping from Faith:

    Hmm… 21 years or the gators, is my guess! Good job though, it's so hard to find anything that sounds off!

  12. Ping from LadyJai:

    I am soooooo loving all these guesses. Can't wait to reveal. I may do it tomorrow! Or Sunday/Monday, haven't decided, yet! πŸ˜€

  13. Ping from Jeanne:

    I have no idea. YOu did a great job telling your story and it makes me want to get to know you more. I think it must be how long you have been married. I am looking forward to following your story.

  14. Ping from Antimony:

    Hello fellow crusader! Thank you for the visit :)I think the lie may be the question!

  15. Ping from Gary Baker:

    I reckon that, like me, you looked up fuliguline. So that's the fib. You know what it means.Wait, have just re-read the post. Married 21 years? You don't look old enough. I'm going with that as the fib .. or both?I suck at this.

  16. Ping from Len Lambert:

    Fairytale marriage a lie? Hmmmm, this is hard! Hello Fellow crusader! πŸ™‚

  17. Ping from Happily Cheesy:

    Yay! Another fairytale marriage! I think my hubby would have asked me to marry him that soon too if I wasn't 16 when we met. =)

  18. Ping from Liz Fichera:

    I love fairy tale marriage stories so I refuse to believe that is the lie. πŸ˜‰ However, maybe the lie is that you haven't been married 21 years?? You look so young!Nice to meet you!

  19. Ping from Roland D. Yeomans:

    Some might say the alligators are the fib. But since my apartment complex sits by a bayou that would be true for me. You look much too young to have been married for 21 years! Hope your fairy tale marriage never runs into a wicked witch! Roland

  20. Ping from Tanya Reimer:

    ok, 21 years of marriage? That's the lie. That's my guess.

  21. Ping from Alison Stevens:

    Hmm. Not yet married 21 years?I have an award for you on my blog.

  22. Ping from Alison Miller:

    I'm assuming it's the 21-year part. Maybe? Hey fellow crusader! Nice to meet you!

  23. Ping from tinadchayes:

    Maybe how soon your husband popped the question is your fib? Hi from another Crusader. πŸ™‚

  24. Ping from Julie Musil:

    Oh how fun! I'm going to guess alligators are NOT one of the things you watch outside. If that part is true, then wow!I read in your profile that your husband is a disabled vet. Please tell him thank you for his service. I truly appreciate soldiers who keep us safe at home.

  25. Ping from Theresa Milstein:

    Hi, crusader! My guess for the lie you've been married for 21 years. You look too young.

  26. Ping from CherylAnne Ham:

    Hi, great job on the challenge! I'm guessing the lie is that you can bring yourself to get a haircut. Can't wait to find out if I'm right. πŸ™‚

  27. Ping from Lydia K:

    Um, is it the hair stuff? That you never get it trimmed?Hi Crusader, nice to meet you!

  28. Ping from Beth Elisa:

    Fairy tale marriages rock! Thanks for joining my blog Lady Jai!

  29. Ping from The Golden Eagle:

    My guess is you know what fuliguline means. πŸ™‚

  30. Ping from Kari Marie:

    Oh! I wear my emotions on my sleeve too. Unless that's the lie?
