The Stories I Tell ~ from The Word Cellar

Stories. Anecdotes. A free round of words for everyone!

I love stories. I'm the one at social functions with a dozen new anecdotes. But I worry about hogging the conversation. Sometimes I tell myself that I'll be quiet and let others do the talking. But no matter how hard I try, my stories insist on bursting out! Here I can let my stories (the classics that I tell again and again, as well as new ones that unfold along the way) run free. I'm a professional writer and editor, and sole proprietor of The Word Cellar. I write for a variety of publications and clients on everything from green buildings and nuclear reactors to entrepreneurship and the arts. If you need words written, edited, or enlivened, I can help. Contact me.


I've been tagged. Oh my.

Okay, my bro has tagged me. I'll play along. This time.

Each player of this game starts with "six weird things/habits about yourself." People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own six weird things/habits as well as state this rule clearly.

At the end you need to choose six people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" and tell them to read your blog.

1. Like others in my family, I must carry lip moisturizer with me at all times. It seems I've outgrown Chapstick. Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is my stick of choice.

2. When I was a little girl, I had to sleep with at least a sheet covering me, especially if I was sleeping on my stomach. Without the sheet, that monkey in the ceiling might stick a hypodermic needle in my butt.

3. A car once crashed into my kitchen, blowing the stove out of the wall and narrowly missing my mom.

4. I didn't have my first tooth cavity until I was 23. It required a root canal.

5. I will only drink chocolate milk if it's at least partially frozen.

6. I love 80s music. There's just nothing like a good power ballad.

I don't have time to tag anyone right now; I'm going to be late for a lunch date. And come to think of it, I don't think I have six friends who blog. Hmph.

it seems we share many strange and unusal habits. That is understandable, our father is a clown.

Ah yes, the 80s power ballad! And she's totally serious about the lip balm thing. She used to sleep with it in college.

Remember our end of the world dance-a-thons?

Do those qualify as strange and unusual??? I thought all college kids did that!
