5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

UPDATE: Errrr, forgot the whole tagging portion of the meme thing. Sorry. Most of my blogging world has already done this, so I'll tag Drew and... uh... the following people to execute it in the comments: Becky, Jenna, Beth and Betsy.

_______________________________________________________________

Courtesy of Catherine, I'm it.

1. Susan totally stole my "brief but illustrious modeling career" tidbit, and with a much better backstory. But at age 14 with all the height I have now and about half the weight, I had a fledgling modeling career that ended when I declared to my mother that it "felt like prostitution."

2. It may be a bit boring to piggy back on other people's selections for a list like this, but, whatever. Catherine's #3 is well known to me because Catherine's first cousin Chris is a very very good friend of mine, predecessing and unrelated to my relationship with Catherine. The wife of the grandfather she mentions knows of me as "the girl the turtle's named after."

3. I have irrational fears of bugs, escalators and helicopters. My fear of clowns though -- I don't think that's irrational at all.

4. For the first three years or so of my life, my parents were really worried that I was never going to develop a sense of humor because I was so extremely serious and didn't smile or laugh. Also, for the first week or so of my life, my parents feared I may die because I didn't eat, drink, poop or pee. Don't worry, I mastered it all in subsequent years.

5. My sorority invited me to play on our intramural softball team solely for the purpose of getting to watch me run, because in all my gangly, unathletic glory, it's apparently the funniest thing you can observe on any given night in Charlottesville.

This is hard, because I feel like I blab about a lot of the inane aspects of my daily life. I'll do my best though.

1. I exclusively use the T9 word feature while text messaging. I don't know what I would do without it. However, I don't always check it and sometimes inadvertently send nonsense messages.

2. I am a recycling nazi. I not only get mad when people don't recycle, I get mad when they do it incorrectly. There is no "at least they're trying" when it comes to me and my recycling bins.

3. In the past two years, I have successfully gone cold turkey on the caffeine twice, and have fallen off the wagon twice (off the wagon? on the wagon? You know what I mean). The reason for the self-induced caffeine withdrawal--acid reflux, Ashlee Simpson style. Seriously, it does affect your voice. I feel for the girl. And I miss tomatoes and chocolate.

4. Since I started work on August 21, I have worn a skirt and stockings to the office every single day. Its one of the little idiosyncracies of practicing in NC. You know how smokers could add up their cigarette expense for a year and buy, like, two Nintendo Wiis by the end of the year? That's how I am with pantyhose.

5. Maya Rudolph's SNL imitation of Whitney Houston makes me laugh really, really hard. Almost hard enough to forget that she was ever on Mad TV.
