I’ll use weird stuff most people wouldn’t know. Sorry about sharing #5.

I can no longer speak my first language. I was young. I forgot it, except the swears. I can swear a blue streak because Mom, Dad, Grand-mama and Grand-papa wouldn’t swear in English.

Highlanders from the Carpathian mountains. Dark-fairy-tale stuff about gypsies, healers and strange customs. Cool, because that’s my family.

No idea what language it is. No one who’s heard it knows either, but it appears to be both consistent and conversational. Also, kinda bossy. *shrugs*

Surgery is no fun. I wake up every 7–10 minutes. Ask me how I know.

Two as a child, plus I flat-lined in surgery as an adult. I watched the surgeon use the paddles on me from the ceiling. Yes, it was as weird as it sounds.

Oprah once featured a book about “women pioneers” of the Internet. I was one of the women in the book. It was the first time I got hate mail. lol.

It was the only “fully clothed” feature they ever did.

I was doing a website for an actress and she called me from set. He was on set and grabbed the phone to say hi Linda, nice job, it looks great. lol. Funny.

It’s not my profession. Always worked in marketing and advertising. Sewing is a hobby. My sis was one of the dancers. So… yeah, that was neat!

Making new fonts is fun, but I’m really digging restoring old (old!) fonts from the 1400s-1800s. Hope I live a long time, because there’s so many things I want to learn. All with my hands, of course. Hello, right brain!

P.S. Linda A Robinson, PhD — told you I would. :)

If you play along, please share a link in the comments so I can come read!
