Do You Want Cheese On That?

In an effort to stay distracted and not completely obsessed with everything on the IVF front, I've decided to stray away from talk of eggs, embryos, and fertilization for a brief moment.

The always-funny Laurie from Crazy Aunt Purl has tagged everyone on the "internets" (and that includes me!) to play along with this silly meme. In return, I will tag anyone who reads this and cares to play along.

TEN random things you might not know about me

1: I don't have a large intestine. Had it removed when I was ten.
2: I've never highlighted my hair, but I have dyed it red, purple, and black.
3: I would secretly love to open my own bakery-bookshop combo store.
4: I cannot add...or subtract, multiply, or divide. Math is not my friend.
5: I love musicals! LOVE them!
6: I've met Anne Rice, before she reinvented herself as Mel Gibson.
7: I am small talk-challenged.
8: People tell me I look like Christina Ricci. Frequently.
9: I love Hillary Clinton. Don't hate!

    "Commit an unpunishable act of road rage." --- LOL! To meet you, you'd never know you had that brewing beneath the surface! ;-)

    GOOD LUCK today, lovey!! Thinking of you lots.... {Hug}

    That was a lot of fun to read, even if we don't agree on everything, it's amazing how much we DO agree on!

    Love this!

    "I would secretly love to open my own bakery-bookshop combo store."

    I too would love to do that. I've fallen in love with baking over the past year (my sugar-spice cookies are the biggest hit). I hate to cook, but I love to bake (something I think I remember you mentioning somewhere in one of these entries.) I explain it this way. When you're cooking a meal, you're not really making anything, you're just taking a food and seasoning it somehow. But when you're baking, the possibilities are endless just by using the same basic ingredients. You're creating something! (Maybe that's why I like knitting...)

    And I've wanted to run a bookstore since I was a kid. I'm a big dork when it comes to books. Books are candy to me.

    "I cannot add...or subtract, multiply, or divide. Math is not my friend."

    I can't do anything with fractions, not one thing. It's like I missed that day in school and never caught up. I also have no concept of space or time. I kid you not, I cannot gauge how long it will take me to get somewhere unless I have Google maps in front of me. I couldn't tell you if I've gone a foot or a mile. I'm always way off the mark when guessing someone's age or weight so I've stopped trying. It's weird. I wonder if there's a disorder for that...
