So, I've started a blog. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to build up a huge army of readers, but it should be way to share things I think are cool or funny in more than 140-characters, and possibly work on my writing. It's either that or actually start working on the novel I thought of in 1999 - and I'm way too much of a procrastinator for that.
For this first post, thought I'd start off by sharing some random facts about myself, maybe setting the tone for what's to come.
- I think music feeds the soul. If you take a look at my music collection, you'll see that this means my soul is made up mostly of cheese. (I love cheese.)
- I'm a sucker for fresh, warm bread. I find it almost impossible to resist, and do not understand or relate to people who don’t find it tempting. (Warm bread + soft cheese = fabulous)
- Should I ever win the lottery, I'm spending a big chunk of the winnings just traveling the world.
- I love Chinese food, and have eaten at Chinese restaurants in 6 different countries and visited 6 cities’ Chinatowns. I think the movie Eat Drink Man Woman is food porn. As part of my tour of the world, I want to continue trying different interpretations of this fine cuisine, particularly the regional variations in its country of origin.
- I still know the choreography for Janet Jackson's "Miss You Much" video.
- My most embarrassing moment is more of a highlight reel than just one single event.
- I love to travel to new places, but hate to fly and hate to drive. Despite my dislike of getting there, have visited 10 countries and 30 US states.
- I am constantly looking for the perfect lipstick, and still miss that one that was discontinued circa 1991.
- As of today, I have rated 3182 movies on Netflix. Most of it is NOT highbrow…10 of those ratings are for movies starring one Mr. Freddie Prinze Jr.
- I cry at the drop of a hat. I cry at commercials, listening to the radio, while reading, watching ESPN, sometimes sunshine in my eyes can make me cry. (Off to listen to John Denver now.) Basically, I have to have tissues with me at all times.
Hope that those of you reading this enjoy it, overlook the gross grammatical errors that I will surely have, and let all the sarcasm and snark slide.
