10 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

I am a pretty open book, both on my blog and in real life,  I wear my heart on my sleeve and can’t lie my way out of a wet paper sack.  But there are a few nooks and crannies in my life that have flown under the radar.  Things like (in no particular order):

#1 I had a nightlight until I was 34 and I’m still afraid of the dark.  My childhood bedroom faced a yard light so I had a thousand watt nightlight every night.

#2 Little people freak me out.  I blame it on being so tall- don’t know if that’s really it or not, but they just make me very uncomfortable.

#3 My first concert?  Sheena Easton with opening act Michael Damian at the Minnesota State Fair in 1989.

#4 When I graduated from high school I planned on becoming a pediatrician.

#5 I hate reality TV, with the one exception of Dancing with the Stars, which I freely admit is a very silly show.  I’ve never watched a full episode of Survivor, the Amazing Race, the Bachelor, or any of their cousins.  The only two episodes of American Idol I ever watched all the way through were the two where Jon Bon Jovi was the celebrity mentor.

#6 I starting watching NFL football in college to spend more time with a guy I was interested in.  Before that I was a basketball chick. That guy is now my ex-husband, and he and I are still in a Fantasy Football League together and very good friends.

#7 I was a shy and somber child.  I have witnesses to prove it.

#8 I have an unhealthy obsession with the TV show Who’s Line Is it Anyway.  I love the Drew Carey seasons, the Aisha Tyler seasons, and have even watched most of the original British episodes- many of which did feature Ryan Stiles and/ or Colin Mochrie,

#9 I have never seen any of these movies:  Jaws, Frozen, Iron Man (any of them),  Harry Potter (any of them), Hunger Games (any of them).

10# I hate broccoli.  I’ve tried it raw, cooked, covered in cheese, just about any way you can imagine.  It all smells like farts and tastes worse.

So, there’s a little more about me.  What fun facts are there about you we should all know?
