In that twenty-square-foot area, in the past year, I have been attacked by a 300 lb. wild boar, hit by a car while on my bike, had my stuff ripped apart by an army of crows, and had a venomous snake come out of the bushes five feet from me.

(1) I love kitsch. Not in my house. But if I’m on a roadtrip and pass a sign for the world’s tallest coffee cup, or biggest ball of yarn or whatever, I HAVE to stop. This obsession also extends to classic American diners – LOVE them.
(2) I wish I could go back to the 1950s and 1960s and just observe what life was like then (not, @gabrielleelise1981, because of the clothes ), beacuse I find the social and political norms of the time to be completey fascinating.
(3) The Guy and I recently discovered the On Demand Karaoke feature on our tv. Sometimes when we’re bored we turn it on and sing along to the most ridiculous songs we can find.
(4) I am OBSESSED with travel research and have been for as long as I can remember. Seriously, when I was a kid, I used to make spreadsheets for my parents so that they could accurately compare all the vacation destinations they were considering for their next trip. Nerd alert!
(5) I do not like my food to touch. Especially if I’m having pancakes and the maple syrup touches the eggs or the bacon…UGH! DISASTER!
(6) I love to look very pulled together even if I don’t need to. I am usually the most dressed up person in the office. Dressing up just makes me feel good about myself.
(7) I do not like Sephora. There’s too much selection. I mean, how would I choose ONE eyeshadow out of the whole store!? Not possible!
(8) I have been really down lately because I LOVE my job, but it’s a contract that ends at the end of August and the new job I have lined up (at the same institution) isn’t nearly as great. Boo.
(9) I was on Regie and Kathie Lee when I was 9. My family ran into Regis when we were in Paris (he was there filming a special) and then they aired our conversation with him on the show a couple weeks later!
(10) I love skiing and it makes me sad that The Guy refuses to try it, because I loved family ski vacations when I was growing up and would love to take our future children on the same types of trips.
