meme of fives

Julie over at no want decaf! tagged me for this meme a while ago. Better late than never!

The rules of the meme get posted at the beginning. Each person answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the blogger then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

The "decline" bit on #1 of your to-do list is rather distressing when we happen to know you have our manuscript...

I like the portrait of your life this creates, btw. I wonder how it will turn out, about me.
