Good day, bloggers! Today, I have a special guest, Angela Christina Archer, who has recently published her historical novel “The Woman On The Painted Horse” on Amazon. She’s going to share some random facts about herself. I just love it when writers share their quirks and cool skills. 🙂
It’s time to get to know a fellow writer and her book!
Random Things About Me…
I have weird food habits. I love bacon, it’s perhaps my most favorite
food. But with that said, I can’t have it on anything – love bacon, love
hamburgers, but will NOT eat a bacon burger. To me, bacon is too good to
be shared with other flavors.
I won’t eat onions on anything, and even strain my Ragu spaghetti sauce
to get the little chopped onions out. But I like and will eat onion
rings and Outback’s Bloomin’ Onion.
Before I was diagnosed with ulcers, I ate jalapeno peppers on anything
and everything I can get them on. It’s probably part of the reason I
developed ulcers. I miss them. A lot.
I am a condiment queen and will smoother my food with mayo, ketchup, or
dressing – whatever the condiment the certain food requires I will pile
it on, and I even put mayo on not only my sandwiches and hamburgers, but
my hot dog buns too.
I eat peanut butter on pancakes and waffles instead of butter. I prefer
vegetables over fruit. And, I believe that cream cheese is a gift from
the heavens. Brownies are my biggest weakness and I will pile cream
cheese frosting on them without a second thought.
My grandparents came to America from Germany. With my German blood, I’m
also a Taurus and the combination makes me extra stubborn.
I drive like a grandma…like seriously. It annoys the heck out of
people who drive with me.
I am an extremely light sleeper, like I hear an ant walk across the back
porch outside with a the window shut and the bedroom door shut and I
wake up. I’m ridiculously addicted to coffee….might be why I’m a light
sleeper. Huh, no, I only have one cup maybe two, I’m just a light
I have no patience when it comes to electronics. If it doesn’t work at
the drop of a hat, I get annoyed.
I started riding horses when I was six years old and started showing in
the Hunter Jumper circuit at the age of twelve. I haven’t been to a
horse show in several years, since getting married and having kids, but
one day I would like to get back into it with my kids.
I can recite pretty much every scene in Dumb and Dumber. I’ve seen every
episode of I Love Lucy and can’t wait for my kids to grow up on the
I think that the Prince in Sleeping Beauty (Disney version) is a wuss.
He never would have made it out of Maleificent’s castle without those
My all time favorite band is Def Leppard, and I wish we were still in
the 80’s. Facebook has a 80s Kids Rule group page…best page ever!
I live in a po-dunk town in Oklahoma where one of my neighbors has
little lights covered by different colored shot gun shells for Christmas
lights, tractors are often seen on the streets of the neighborhood more
than cars, where everyone instantly knows where I live at the mention of
previous homeowners last name, and I love it. My house not this large,
new, pretty track home. It is old and it needs work. But I don’t care a
single bit. It sits on over eight acres of beautiful pasture for my
horses, it’s out in the country, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
