All About Me
I like dark chocolate and cheese dip (although not together) and the occasional straight up, extra-dry, extra-filthy martini with extra olives.
I cry a lot. At. Everything. Commercials. Movies. TV Shows. And if you cry around me (or if I even sense that you are about to cry or could cry), I lose it. I'm a baby.
Even though I pretend I'm tough, I'm extremely sensitive. My toughness is a total facade, except when I do Bikram Yoga in 110 degree heat. Then, I'm a bada$$.
I am very honest. Actually too honest. I will always tell it like it is. And that gets me into trouble... a lot. So if you don't want to know if your butt looks big in those jeans, don't ask.
I am an amazing multi-tasker. Ask my hubby. (Actually, I'm juggling 10 things as I write this.)
I love animals and nature and am completely heartbroken at the way we treat both. Oh yeah, I cry about that too.
I love Milos Sweet Tea and any kind of flavored coffee with flavored cream. In fact, I like a little coffee with a lotta cream. (SEE my cream addiction below).
I love to laugh, especially at myself. I work hard to be a silly klutz - it does not come easy. Let's just say, I always have one person laughing at my jokes - even if it's usually just me.
I am addicted to Delights White Chocolate Raspberry Creamer and horde bottles when it comes out every Dec. (Seriously, it is a problem.)
When I was 10, I got dragged down an asphalt street by a big dog (in my mind it was a werewolf but that's another story. Sadly, my teenage babysitter put band-aids on every single scratch and road burn patch. What I learned - ripping off 3 boxes of bandaids really hurts! (Needless to say my pet walking business was a total bust.) And not that you need to ask, but YES I did cry.
I love to read in bed and am obsessed with any movie (past or present) and T.V. (Walking Dead, The Following and anything CW).
I am very loyal to my friends and people I love. I will stick by them through thick and thin. I am learning how to let go of people who are not loyal to me.
I'm a slight hypochondriac and germaphobe. It's probably why I don't eat leftovers. Seriously if I sneeze - it must be something serious.
My first car was an apple-red 1984 Toyota Celica Hatchback. By the time I turned it in, I had a boom box on the seat (the radio broke), no air-conditioning, and I had to pour a quart of oil in every morning just to get to work. (True story.)
I have two kids that make me laugh and who actually think I'm as funny as I think I am. :)
I worked in Corporate America for about 12 years and barely got out alive. Though my creativity managed to survive. I hope.
I am still seeking my true purpose and hope it helps people someday. I want to make a difference.
