Well, Corinne Edwards has been saying for awhile now that I am nebulous. While I blog here pretty much every day, no one really has the whole picture of what I am really all about. Today is Corinne’s lucky day – I’m doing what she wanted and I am telling you a bunch of stuff about, well, me. For future generations, I want to make clear that I am doing this because a friend asked me to.

And more (are you still awake?)
1. One of my favorite shows when I was a super little kid was Love Boat. I named one of my first babydolls Gopher, in fact.
2. If it’s soft, cute, and cuddly, I’m probably allergic to it. I am horribly allergic to cats especially, which breaks my heart because I love cats. I love every kind of cat. I want to hug all of them but I can’t hug every cat.
3. I tend to make up words. Often. The OED could have a field day cataloging words that I make up. Examples include “smush,” “garg” and other more nonsensical sort of sounds that I pretend are words. These do not tend to come across in written communication.
4. When I was little, I had a crush on Rod Stewart. I don’t know if I can ever forgive myself.
5. I used to be semi-fluent in Hebrew and can still sing “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” in Hebrew (I went to a Jewish private school for five years)
6. In high school, I was on our speech team and found a large amount of success in Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking. This meant that we would draw a current events topic, and then we’d have half an hour to research, write, and memorize a 7 minute speech. I placed fourth in Ohio twice and went to Nationals once, and won the rookie of the year award my freshman year.
7. My secret desire is to be a stand-up comedian. I already have the name set for my first tour – “Yes, I’m Really Standing.” This stems from a comment I got back in my cashier days. A guy came up and asked me if I was going to stand up to ring him up. It’s important to note I *was* standing…on a platform. Also included in this act would be the story of the woman who asked me if I stored my shoes in an index card box. That is the weirdest question I have ever been asked, and I doubt anyone will be able to top it.
8. My other secret desire is to be a philanthropist. I would give so much of my wealth away if I could just get wealthy. That seems to be an important first step.
9. I am an avid fan of 1990s rap music. I can on occasion recite some segments of gangsta rap. For some reason, people find it funny when this mood strikes me.
10. One of my favorite activities is to get together with people at a coffee shop and talk and/or craft.
OK. I think that’s more than enough. Now it’s your turn! Post those questions to YOUR blog!! I think it is only fair you return the favor 🙂
