Thursday Thirteen #18 — Introducing Pam Derbish

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I said a few weeks ago that I’d be introducing a new character to these parts. But then we all know what happened here with Thursday Thirteen and, to be honest, Wednesday and Thursday of last week just sucked for me. NOT a time to bring someone new into the fold.

However, like most of the women who populate my fiction, Pam doesn’t hold back when she’s been promised something. So… without further ado,

Thirteen Things about Pam Derbish

1. Her hair was originally a caramel brown.

2. She went blonde when she was 12 and never looked back.

3. She began exercising because she was terrified she’d wind up like her parents — overweight, diabetic and emphysemic.

4. She fell in love with her own muscles, once she saw them. Their shape and strength was addictive.

5. Implants only made her look better. She was eighteen when she got them.

6. She avoided the eating disorder trap because those muscles need fuel.

7. That said, she is extremely careful about what she puts in her body.

8. She’s not a huge drinker.

9. That makes being around ShapeShifter difficult.

10. She discovers ShapeShifter mostly because they are the hot thing in Riverview when she’s sixteen.

11. She doesn’t particularly like their music.

12. She loves the attention Trevor gives her.

13. Trevor is a bit of a means to an end — stay tuned for what that means.

    Sounds like a girl who gets what she wants, but also maybe driven by fear and possible insecurity?

    Trevor and the others better watch out, she sounds like an up-stager. and if she is so into changing things she doesn’t like she’ll be changing the band’s repertoire and costumes not to mention their drinking habits.BR/BR/my tt is 13 things i am grateful for

    Thanks for visiting and reading my humble T13 – πŸ™‚ My kids were so very good to me it is true. BR/I have a question – I put up “the code” to T13 – but nobody is leaving a “link” in my comments other than their user name – which links to their blog – BR/Does that mean I should add them to that little purple box? BR/If ONLY I could figure out how to use the Mr. Linky! πŸ™‚

  42. Susan Helene Gottfried

    March 1, 2007 2:42 pm

    Sad to say, most of us don’t put the links to other sites like we’re supposed to. BR/BR/Yeah, Mr. Linky’s hard. I have the Tour Manager deal with him for me.
