Write a post on your blog telling your readers (do I HAVE readers?) SEVEN things about yourself they are not very likely to know (through the blog specifically or people in general might not know) about you! (This is what I do when I can't think of anything to write about.)
1. I really love most of the children television shown on PBS (except for that chick with the comfy couch. I'm sorry, but girlfriend needs a new agent--then again, she is definitely making more money than me, and probably has a bed in her room. Unlike me). I'm not a fan of that Nickelodeon anymore; they have gone way downhill in terms of programming (except for the old throwbacks like Fairly Oddparents, and Spongebob). The twins from "Big Daddy" are NO LONGER CUTE. And they are way annoying. But the shows on PBS are a gem. Now, I know I was too old to really love "Arthur" as a child, but that show has a helluva lot of charm. When I was babysitting, before I got a real job, I used to force the two year old that I watched to tune in with me. I don't know if you know much about toddlers, but their attention spans are pretty short. So I would end up TiVoing it and watching it during naptime. Alone. Also, I will drop anything and watch "The Magic School Bus" if it comes on. Seriously- I learn a lot, and I have fun. Best show ever.
2. If you know me, you are painfully aware of my obsession with Ann Martin's late series, The Babysitter's Club. If you really know me, you also know that whenever I am depressed, angry, sad, or happy, I reread my favorite books of the series. I also read the holiday themed books around each holiday. I won't be in the Christmas spirit without reading about how Mallory saved her family's Christmas when her dad got laid off. (This book would be extremely timely had Ann Martin published it now. God, I love her.) And then, in another book, she tries to have an old-fashioned Christmas, and it, of course, goes awry! Damn you rampant commercialism!
3. My favorite color is blue. How come no one ever asks me this anymore? I think it's relevant, especially if you are buying me something. Take note, future suitors, relatives and friends.
4. I love Hanson. Oh wait, you ALL already knew that. I also love jazz music, but you might have known that too.
5. Got one! Bet you didn't know that thanks to me, Manhattan College has implemented a VERY strict policy when it comes to absences. I was too afraid to tell my jazz professor that I had multiple diseases. But when he docked my grade because of too many missed classes, I had to fess up. He then turned to administration to force them to implement a policy that requires students to inform their professors of this kind of stuff in a timely matter and NOT at the very end of the semester, as I did. The next semester, every syllabus had a whole page devoted to the matter. But that was the semester I got cancer, so I didn't care. HA! Anyway, sorry.
6. I am a great driver now (just ask Brenna), but as a fifteen year old studying for my permit test, I backed my mom's Volvo into the fence and completely knocked it down. To which my mother said "YOU ARE NO LONGER MY DAUGHTER!". I still think she overreacted. However, this story is not as good as a certain friend's story. He/she shall not be named, but he/she totally drove their car through a store. I still crack up everytime I think about it. And it's not Rachel, if that's what you're thinking.
7. The seventh thing you don't know about me is....okay, I have one. Yesterday I dropped my ID badge in front of my boss's office. I bent down to pick it up, tripped over my own very small feet, and slammed my head on the wall. Then I said, really loudly, "Ow, I sure am clumsy". No one responded/noticed/picked their heads up. I'm not sure I even exist.
So...tell me something about yourself...
