M my name is Mary

Middle name, that is. Been tagged by Granny J of Walking Prescott.

"...list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have. At the end of your blog post you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag."

Wouldn't I love to pick a different middle name? Can anyone guess what it would be? But let's use my real one: Mary.

Manly

I've often thought I should have been born a male. Growing up, I was held to many of the same standards as my five brothers. Someone asked me recently why I don't cry. That's why.

Besides, there're always antidepressants to take up the slack.

Action-oriented

Can't stand to just sit around. I have to be making things, fixing things, or planning things.

riter

Well, wRiter, anyway. May not yet be a good one, but I sure am prolific.

Yin/Yang

Yin and Yang. Somewhat of a dualist. Especially with people, I've learned to look for the flip side of just about anything. Life just seems to be like that.

Ahh, Granny J, while you're welcome to tag me, I decline to pass it on.

Readers (hope you're plural...) you are welcome to grab the baton yourself.

A wRiter but you went into the production end of things? But then it fits well with your other characteristic, being action-oriented. Thank you for baring your soul...BTW, why isn't there a way to reach your stories directly from the blog? I had to go to your personal page to get there.

I started as a writer/editor in a small publishing house and moved to the paper when the bottom fell out of the local education market.

Will fix the story setup soon. I was publishing notices of updates on Monumental Self Indulgence.

Hello, pb,
I found your blog through Granny J.
Interesting thoughts -especially the bit about Yin/Yang and Manly. Sometimes I think, too, I should have been born a man and I am sure, I have been a man, before ...

Granny J, the proposed links are now in the upper right of my blogs.

Olivia, I believe that sexuality is a continuum, like many things human. My ability to see the man's side of things has served me well in my business and industry dealings.

I should note that most of my friends consider me quite "girly" even though I certainly don't feel it.
