Things you might not know about me:

  • I am afraid to drive. (but I do it anyway. I just don’t turn left.)
  • I’m a vegetarian.
  • I detest portabella mushrooms.
  • I love puppets.
  • I have to look at the keys when I type and I don’t use my thumbs.
  • I’ve never had a broken bone.
  • I’ve never been hospitalized.
  • I think shooting stars are the best.
  • I am a terrible housekeeper, but I don’t care.
  • I find swearing to be profoundly satisfying.
  • I believe I would die from sadness if I couldn't have cheese. Cheese makes my day worthwhile.
  • I organize my weekly wardrobe every Sunday, right down to the underwear and jewelry, and then I hang up the outfits in chronological order.
  • I’ve never had a martini.
  • I am so deeply, deathly afraid of police, I doubt I would be able to report a crime if it meant having to speak to a cop.
  • I have three secrets that my friends, family, and spouse don’t know.
  • I once sang the Oscar Meyer Weiner song on the radio.
  • I am not at all ticklish. Not even a little.
  • I actually enjoyed the movie, Showgirls. More than once.
  • My wedding was so unusual it was on the evening news.
  • I adore hand drums; I own no fewer than four djembe drums and at least a dozen small percussion instruments.
  • I never believed in haunted houses until I lived in one.
  • There is not a day that goes by that I don't wonder if, when the day comes, I will die from suicide or natural causes. As long as I have options, death doesn't scare me.
  • I own several dozen wristwatches, but only five have working batteries at any one time.

I love, love, love this list. I don't remember how I found this blog, but I think it's cool. You're cool. Maybe it's because you remind me of me!!

1. I'm afraid to drive, too. I will do it anyway, but only if I really have to.

2. I'm not a vegetarian, but I am not a big meat-eater. Gag!

3. I look at the keys to type, too!

4. I LOVE swearing. I swear my ass off whenever it's even marginally appropriate.

5. I've never before met anyone else who shares my 'police thing'. Police freak me right the hell out. Weird how I married an EX-cop.

6. I didn't believe in haunted houses even WHILE I was living in one. I just tried to ignore it. Until it got too freaky.

7. My husband and I have decided to off ourselves together when we are very old.

Now then. Unless my list is too bizarre, maybe you would like to visit sometime? I'm going to put your blog in my favorite places. See you around!

See, this restores my faith in humanity. Just when I think I'm doomed to slog through a life of isolation and disenfranchisedness(?), I find that there are people who "get" me. That's encouraging. I will see you around, Lynn...
