25 Random Things About Me (from the archives 2009--will revisit)

25 Random Things about Me

 Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 11:00am
25. The phrases "That dog won't hunt" and "Do what now?" crack me up.
24. Today, I am adopting a cat named Addison.
23. My last cat was the greatest. He has been dead for a year now and I miss him. Long live the memory of Sid Vicious Sebring!
22. I want to start a website.
21. Ginger root makes me very happy. I love the smell, the taste, the way it looks—all gnarly and smooth at the same time. I drink ginger tea daily.
20. Very often I am disappointed by live music. I don’t go to as many live shows as I used to because of this disappointment. That and my bedtime is 9:30.
19. My favorite place is my home.
18. My second favorite place is the beach.
17. Third favorite is Brooklyn, NY.
16. I have never been to a holocaust museum and that makes me feel guilty.
15. I have been to the Columbus Museum of Art and that also makes me feel guilty.
14. I drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. I was once deemed “the most well-hydrated person” in the world.
13. Within the last year, I became a gardener. I got very sad in the late fall because my garden was dying. (And I am so so freaking excited for spring and planting!)
12. Slayer rocks.
11. I dream about living in Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, and Fiji even though I have never been to these places.
10. Ruth Hope Fisher was the most beautiful woman in the world. I think about her every day. (She would be proud that I correctly used “every day” and not the adjective “everyday.”)
9. I am a nerd. I’m okay with that.
8. Let’s stockpile cases of wine and grain for the impending economic doom that faces our nation. I believe that the economic trouble that’s coming/here might be a good thing for the soul of our people. I want to remember what is really important in life...and wine is up there.
7. South Park is lame. So is The Office. I also don’t get porn, Grey’s Anatomy, or Pop Rocks! candy.
6. Being engaged is really cool. I recommend it. (No, we have not set an official date yet. Sometime in spring of 2010?)
5. No Reservations is my favorite show. I like cable. I also like Top Chef.
4. I wish people would cook for me more often. I love to cook and love to cook for my friends and Dave and to eat out and all that but I wish people would cook more for me too. Get with it peeps!
3. I almost asked a friend to proof-read this even though I am an editor. Honestly, I am a tired editor—I read 268 confirming proof pages already today. Occasionally making typographical errors makes me feel human (instead of incompetent.)
2. I wonder how this list would have been different two years ago or ten months from now.
1. Having a wedding terrifies me. Being married doesn’t.
