11 random things


1. I’ve always felt old, even when I was a little kid. Not old as in “oh my achin’ back”, but just older than everyone around me and whenever I do something irresponsible, I think, “You are TOO OLD to be behaving this way.” (This probably stems from being the oldest child in my family.)
2. I’ll never give up on the idea of being a huge success. It can still happen.
3. I share a birthday with Salvador Dali and I’ve always figured that must be why I’m so absurdly weird.
4. I sang in a band when I was 21. I forced my band mates to do an Elvis Presley cover almost every time we played together.
5. I never sweeten my coffee. Dessert is dessert, coffee is coffee, and never shall the two be confused.
6. I have been obsessed with the ’60s for most of my life. When I was 15 I dressed up as Twiggy for our school Halloween dance and NOBODY knew who I was.  Philistines.
7. I didn’t even break a sweat on my wedding day. Marrying my husband was the easiest decision I ever made.
8. I have always been interested in politics and would have considered running for public office if I hadn’t been such a rowdy yayhoo in my early twenties.
9. I’m intensely proud of my unique upbringing as a home schooled Oregonian fisherman’s daughter.
10. I’m also proud to be Irish. I credit my heritage with my ability to hold my liquor. Or not hold it. I forget. ::hiccup::
11. I wasn’t sure I wanted to have kids, but I’m so glad that I did. Being a mom is 49% exasperating, but 51% super awesome fun.
