What about me?
How about some fun facts about the author, for a casual Friday.
--I'm really particular about how I make my bed after I wash sheets. It takes me about 15 minutes to make sure all the sheets and blankets line up, with even blanket on both sides. I love love love sleeping on a freshly made bed. After that first night, I rarely make my bed.
--I'm left-handed. Except I play the violin, use a computer mouse and bat right-handed.
--I just found out I'm ambidextrous.
--I love Jeopardy! but despise any category having to do with English Lit. or Authors because I majored in English in college, and never get any answers in those categories correct. But somehow, I'll sweep Beatles Lyrics and Crossword Answers Beginning with "F". WTF.
--I watch the movie trailers after I watch the movie, to see how fantastically they edited the scenes to make a coherent synopsis -- comparing them to when those scenes actually happened.
--I don't need to see it. Just the thought of needles or grotesque injuries is enough to make me pass out.
--When I'm driving, I can name the make and model of about 75 percent of the vehicles I see on the road.
--I didn't have any cavities until my senior year of college -- then I had two fillings done within 6 months of each other.
--I've never been admitted to a hospital, and I've never broken a bone in my body (knock on wood).
--I can belch louder than you. But not louder than Michelle.
--I'm deathly afraid of pool drains, and deep lakes or ocean water (when I'm in it).
--Every time I travel out of state, I make it a point to eat something I've never tried before. Examples: Grits with butter, and deep fried alligator in Orlando; Deep Fried Okra FROM WHITE CASTLE in Murfreesburo, TN; swordfish in San Diego; raw squid sushimi in Las Vegas
--I'm addicted to salsa, and coffee. But not together. That's fucking disgusting.
--I swear too much.
--I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I drive better than most girls (and ALL blue hairs.)
--I have obscenely different prescriptions for both eyes. Without glasses, my right eye sees 20/70. My left: 20/400.
--I'm usually pretty articulate on paper, but can't hold a normal conversation with most acquaintances.
--I mumble because I stutter.
--My left shoulder is double-jointed.
--I have my moms hands.
