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.) I also horde Trader Joe's Peppermint Joe-Joes and Peppermint ice cream. Hmm, maybe I have a food hoarding 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) any T.V. (Walking Dead, The Following, and anything CW). Now, I'm also obsessed with Apple Tv+, Disney+, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime. Sounds like I have a lot of problems.
I am very loyal to my friends and the 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. And then I might secretly haunt you or have revenge in the form of glitter bombs.
I'm a slight hypochondriac and germaphobe. Seriously if I sneeze - it must be something serious.
I don't eat leftovers. Old food whether it's on my plate or in the sink is totally gross. Unless I drop an M&M and then it's the 5-second rule!
My first car was an apple-red 1984 Toyota Celica Hatchback. By the time I turned it in, I had a pink boom box on the seat, no air-conditioning, and poured a quart of oil in every morning just to get to work. I traded it in for a Jetta at $500 (True story.)
I have two kids that make me laugh and who actually think I'm as funny as I think I am. :) I do bribe them to laugh but that's not important.
I worked in Corporate America for about 10 years and barely got out alive. I now work as a freelance copywriter for various companies. I think 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.
