Meet the Author

I thought I'd take a time out from my usual fare of witty insights and pictures of my children to share a bit about myself. These things that are absolutely unimportant to your life today and yet precisely the kinds of things best friends know about each other. If you read my blog we're basically BFFs, so I trust you'll love me in spite of and perhaps because of a few of these things. 

I am a stickler for grammar. If you send me an email with a spelling error I will question your IQ. I can't help it. Top grammatical pet peeves are the misuse of its/it's and your/you're. I particularly hate it when I see billboards that say, "Open Sunday's." 

I talk too much. As far back as I can remember this has been a problem for me. I struggled through being a BIG liar and I think it was primarily because I ran out of true things to say.

I married up. I mean...clearly B Daddy did well for himself. But comparatively speaking, I think I did better.

I think I'm pretty good at everything I do. Don't judge. Once I discover I'm not good at something I generally drop it. This explains why motherhood has been so tricky for me.

I don't mind if our toilets have black rings around them, but even one dirty dish in the sink makes me anxious.

I love to read. And I love people who love to read. It's like finding a kindred spirit, even if they love Vince Flynn and you're more the Jane Austen type. Yesterday I bought some new books at the thrift store and I introduced B Daddy to each one last night like they were guests in the house. 

I like to talk about politics and religion.

I hate small talk. Unless I really love the people I'm small talking with and then I will small talk you under the table. But really I'd rather talk politics and religion.

I've always wished I were a musician. My musical skill set in no way qualifies me to perform publicly, but it doesn't stop me from wishing I was on stage.

I went to two elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools. Each time we moved, we moved in the middle of the school year. My parents had a theory about making friends before summer ...the jury is still out on whether or not theirs was a valid theory.

I have crooked pinkies. They are both so crooked people ask if they were broken and not set. Yup folks I had a freak accident where only my pinkies were injured. My GranStan has them too and now Blue Eyes. I love that.

My sister is my best friend. She's the yin to my yang, the snap to my crackle, the cheese in my macaroni. She is the worst shopper in the world and I still love her.  

I don't know what people are talking about when they say asparagus makes your pee smell. I wonder if it's because my pee always smells weird.

I LOVE to dance. One time in college I was dancing at a tailgate (totally normal) and a lady standing around me said, "You'd never believe she's as sober as a judge." That remains one of my all-time favorite compliments to this day. 

I have never had a favorite color. I was always uncomfortable when people would ask that when I was little. Now I find myself asking my kids. Jerk.

But enough about to share any inane tidbits with us about yourself?
