I've Been Tagged
Are we ready? 6 quirky, interesting, unimportant things about me! Well I suppose number one is that I am not that interesting! I am a regular Boston Girl...and you know what they say about those Boston Girls, don't you?
Tidbit#1: Contrary to popular belief not every Bostonian is a roaring Red Sox fan. I love the "idiots" as much as the next guy but I am more of a bandwagon fan; we win, I am at the parade. They lose, I don't lose much sleep (please note the distinction "we" win, "they" lose). In fact I didn't know much about them until about age 17 when my high school moved to a building right behind Fenway Park. That's when I learned what a TRUE Sox Fan was...and when they say Red Sox Nation, they mean it! It is a community in and of itself. But me? I am not a resident!
Tidbit#2: I am, however, a football fan. And it's not just about the tight ends (though we all know there are some NICE booties out on that field). Most females think it's "too rough" and kind of barbaric. Sadly, those are the things I love the most. I tackled my boyfriend in high school and it was the best feeling in the world. Ran straight at him and just grrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Loved it! NFLers get paid to do that...that has to be such an adrenaline rush. I'm jealous
Naturally, I am an NE Patriots fan...city of champions baby! All day!
Tidbit #3: I found out I was visually impaired (needed glasses for those who aren't interested in being politically correct) in the fifth grade. Upon receiving my first pair of glasses, I promptly tossed them out my bedroom window. In my defense they were HORRENDOUS!!! I went outside to retrieve them and told my mom they broke in my backpack. She hasn't paid for my glasses since, lol
Tidbit #4: I have a tendency to dance when I am anticipating a good meal. It's an odd phenomenon! I have no control over it! I just get really excited for food. It's that simple. Someone will make dinner, or I'll go to a restaurant, and when the mealtime approaches I do a little shimmy.
Tidbit #5: I am a pop culture junkie. I have oodles of useless pop culture factoids in my head. Celebrities names, who is dating who, movie/album release dates, yadda, yadda, yadda. I watch Access Hollywood, Extra, Daily 10, The Soup, TMZ, Black Carpet, all the celebrity gossip shows. I paroose sites like TMZ, People.com, and Mediatakeout.com, daily. Ask me anything pop culture related...Britney or JamieLynn's baby daddy name, how many children Eddie Murphy has, which Sex and the City star is gay, how many times has Carmen Electra been married, Team Heidi or Team Lauren.
Tidbit#6: I am a writer working on my first novel. It will be published through my publishing company Dorchester's Daughter Publishing. Visit http://www.dorchestersdaughter.com/ for news and updates. Yeah...shameless plug I know. PR it's a dirty job but somebody's got to do it!!!!!
