~~And now to come clean about my First Crusade Challenge. Amanda M. gets the award for reading between the lines successfully and figuring out the lie. I think she read all the comments and used elimination to figure it out.
-I love words and dictionary sites. I go to them nearly every day. Thanks to all of you who suggested new ones for me to explore.
-Zan is my daddy's fifth-grade girlfriend's name and it's not short for Alexandra, Suzanne, or Zandra.
-Momma didn't like Marie, but used it because the two names sounded good together. She had a classmate by that name who she just didn't like.
-I do use both names, but answer to just Zan, too.
-Among my many nicknames are Jamboree, Zana Banana, and Zanimo-Mechanimo. For more details about my name go to this old post HERE.
-I do hunt every little good thing about others while holding myself to an unobtainable level of perfection. As my hubby says, "Why don't you cut yourself the same breaks you give everyone else?"
-My worst villain--the evil incarnated, child sex abuser and murderer--has no redeeming value, but he's more of a boogyman until the climax. I may have to rethink that, but I can say the lesser antagonists do have redeeming traits.
-I absolutely hate Zanimo-Mechanimo! It doesn't help that King Jerk of my high school saddled me with it to make fun of my ability to organize. Yep, even as a teen, I was obsessive. ; )
~~I have a story published on WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty. Go HERE to find out what's surprising about my puppies. ; )
