First Crusader Challenge! Here We Go!

The Challenge 

In 300 words or less, tell us:

· one secret

· one lie

· one interesting quirk

· one annoying habit

· one of your best character traits, and

· one of your favourite things in the whole world.

The post can be in any format, including poetry (for those poets among us), but must include the random words, “bloviate,” “fuliguline,” “rabbit,” and “blade” 

All right, that being said.  I'm not sure I've followed everyone.  I honestly think I had a few problems with some Wordpress people.  So I'm probably not eligible for the prize.

Here we go!


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.  Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.  Brown paper packages tied up with strings.  These are a few of my favorite things!

Ahhh classic musicals.  Who doesn’t love them?  My husband for one.   I however love them.  The Sound of Music, White Christmas, The Wizard of Oz.  These are movies my father played over and over for me as a child.  I knew how to use a VCR by the age of two and constantly rewound the songs and dances.  I think there were times my brother considering breaking the VCR just to make it stop.

An honest person I am.  Then again maybe blunt is a better term.  My friends know I have no problem calling them out when they’re acting like a donkey’s butt.  It’s probably why I have so few true friends.  Not everyone wants to hear the truth.

My husband was cleaning his nails with his pocket knife blade when I asked him what quirks I had.  He was quick to answer.  “You pee before sex every time without fail.”  I didn’t know that was a quirk, but there you have it.  I am the woman who pees before sex without fail.

Random Word of this post: Fuliguline

To know me is to love me, good or bad.  I often pile the bad on my shoulders so the ones I love don’t have to.  I am the secret rock that no one knows about.

I nibble on my nails like a rabbit nibbles on carrots.   My husband bloviates on the subject all the time wishing I’d stop.  It’s a habit I’ve had since I was a little girl.  I’ve taken to chipping away nail polish as a substitute.

Something in the above 283 words is not true.  Can you guess what it is?  The answer shall be in a post tomorrow!  Mwahahahahah!

Well, you've given us two quirks so I would guess that one of them isn't true... one is common and seems like something you'd mention easily. The OTHER seems like something that you would only mention it because it was true OR because we'd believe it because it seems like something you wouldn't say unless it were true. So! I will go with peeing before sex... I think.

This was very creative- I love how you added the words with pictures. I have no clue what the lie is, but great challenge post!

Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, the whole house has been sick all week. So, I just thought I would pop in and just say Hi! :D

Ha! the pee AFTER sex...not before! LOL

Hello to a fellow crusader.

I'm guessing you still bite your nails and haven't actually substituted polish chipping. ☺
