A lot of people–well, not a lot (hi, two readers)–want to know more about me. I guess that is a good thing. I did that stupid Facebook meme, and I thought I would share with others.
1. I wanted to be a nun — thanks to The Sound of Music (Captain Von Trapp is still dreamy) and my wish to wear a habit (so I wouldn’t have to do my hair).
2a. One night in Thailand, I was pickpocketed by a gang of high-heeled, short shorts-wearing transgender thieves.
2b. I almost left Thailand with the security guard I met in a Cambodian casino and a baby that a woman handed to me in a village.
3. I consist of contradictions. For example, I am a romantic at heart, but I hate weddings, tulle, and fondant. I am a communicator, and I hate talking on the phone. I love the idea of romance (hence why I write it), but I can’t deal with other people emoting.
4. My favorite holiday is Halloween. On a regular day, if I come to your house and demand your goodies, it’s called robbery. On Halloween, it’s just trick-or-treat. I love it!
5a. I have rigged an election, not on the level of Chicago-style rigging or Scandal-rigging. But I did. And I am proud of the result.
5b. I was the queen of my prom. Can you connect the dots?
6. I have a scar on my neck. I earned it in grad school during a bar fight regarding a theoretical misunderstanding between members of my grad school cohort.
