Sarah, you've accomplished a great deal in a few short years. I'm amazed and impressed.

My top five would be;

Lived through two bouts of cancer, throat and uterine.

Traveled most of the world and am still going.

Survived a horribly abusive childhood and am a better person for it.

Raised a beautifull daughter who has forgiven me for all my motherly mistakes.

Wrote three books, one is published and the others will be released this summer.

Damn, life is good!

Ha! I passed out your red condoms at a RWA convention you weren't even at! Hows that.

Sarah Grimm said...

Sloane- I didn't know you're a cancer survivor. You go girl! So's my best friend, the one I've been with for 23 years and counting.

Jen- You know I think you're fantastic. Now give me some dirt! What sort of things have you done?

Fun post. Sorry I missed out. Let's see what have I done...

Met Mickey Mantle
Met Mickey Mouse

Um...

Had sex on the beach
Had sex in a closet of new house that *wasn't* mine

Wrote a book
Seen that book published
And did it all over again.:)

I've gotten an email from not one but two of my all time favorite singers. And one even visits my My Space page and leaves me comments.

Recently had the owner/editor of music magazine email me to tell me I have good taste in music.
