random facts about LB

  • seriously considered going to Europe to study opera after high school.
  • am a moderate vegetable and fruit snob: I analyze each piece and pick the best ones and only buy produce from Reasor's.
  • just made a bluegrass station on Pandora. I blame it on Nickel Creek. What is happening to me!?!? I also really like Heart right now. Go figure.
  • absolutely love fleece and wish it was socially acceptable to wear fleece pants in every setting during the winter.
  • can write for hours given the inspiration of a minute's time in a bookstore or an airport.
  • my favorite flavor is marionberry; my least favorite flavor is clove.
  • even after all these years, I'm still deathly terrified of my three childhood fears: clowns, felt hand puppets, and claymation.
  • wish I had a weimaraner or a fox.
  • read lots of Star Wars books, can quote about 60% of the original trilogy (I'm a little rusty), and am pretty much obsessed with Chewbacca. JT says I fell in love with him because he's like Chewie: loyal and hairy!
  • my favorite characters are: Neville Longbottom, Chewbacca, Aurora, Angus, the Wicked Witch (Elphaba), and Chunk. I'm forgetting someone very obvious.
  • pretty much everything I own has a name: Boromir the Sony Vaio, Neville Longbottom III the digital camera, Xi-Xi the Xterra, Truffle Shuffle the iPod Shuffle.
  • want to name my kids Maya, Violet, Emery, and Conner right now. This changes bi-annually probably.
  • been an ulcerative colitis patient since 2001.
  • did musical theater, choir, softball, basketball, and praise and worship band in high school.
  • would play Anita from Westside Story or Eponine in Les Miserables if I could play anyone.
  • my mother was told dancing wasn't for me by the instructor of my first and only dance class I ever took.
