Interesting things about me:
- My dream used to be to become a music video director. Yes really. I would storyboard ideas and everything. I still do it in the car or on the Metro when I’m bored.
- Since I am contractually obligated to mention it at every possible opportunity: I play roller derby. It’s the best sport in the world, and it lets me wear sparkly miniskirts and slam myself into other people whilst on wheels. I adore it.
- I have a fantastic cat named Theresa, who is named after a character from the oft-mourned soap opera Passions.
- I once saw Cokie Roberts in a ladies room. It was funny, (to me) because I had to pretend to be disinterested and cool, and nod politely, when I really wanted to be all “OMG! I loved Founding Mothers!”. This was before she said that silliness about Hawaii, or I might have had to mention it.
- I collect sock monkeys and sock monkey-related items. I even have earrings! (Thanks, SIL!)
- I only wear blue mascara. I have since high school.
- I am pretty obsessed with cryptozoology.
Seven awesome blogs:
- Bookslide III – Run by the awesome Alana, who is recapping L.J. Smith for the edification of all, and whose thoughts on other books and reading in general are consistently thought-provoking, even when I don’t entirely agree. 😄
- Shannon’s Sweet Valley High Blog – Sweet Valley High was my WORLD when I was a pre-teen, and re-experiencing that with Shannon at the helm has been hysterical and amazing.
- The Literary Adventures of Lindsay Monroe – She’s hilarious and I have to admit that that banner makes me laugh out loud every time. Oh Al.
- Gourmet Scum and Other Fun Stuff – Old School Degrassi, BSC, 90210, Pike, SVH…um Cordee does it all and still stays sane and hilarious.
- Like Pike – True, it’s been a while since she updated, but I can hardly fault anyone for that! Her Pike recaps are awesome.
- Unleashing My Inner Teenager. – YA Lit was so much better in our youth. I love Whitney’s take on it.
- Dibbly Fresh – Sadako is awesome and she just recapped CATS. I mean, come on!.
Please check out all of the links over there on the side, though, since they’re all great and I wish I could have nommed them all.
