Versatile Blogger Award: 7 Random Facts


Thanks Mrs. TIP! I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!  Share seven random facts about myself? Ok! Here goes.

  1. I love smoked oysters.  LOVE.  But Mr. DebtFreeJD thinks (rightfully?) they smell terrible, so I try not to indulge in the habit when he’s around.
  2. Like Mrs. TIP, I tried to teach myself to be ambidextrous when I was a kid.  Mostly in math class.  It turns out I’m just right-handed.  I also still can’t do long division.
  3. On the subject of elementary school, I had a long-running friendship with an imaginary horse.  She mainly appeared during gym class when I was forced to run laps (and would pretend I was galloping on said horse!) and walking to and from school (same).
  4. Mr. DebtFreeJD and I are almost exactly the same height.  For a while, he wished I was a little shorter.  And I wished he was a little taller.  But now, I think we’re happy at the same altitude.
  5. I lived abroad for two years after college, during which time I survived mainly on bread, potatoes and vending-machine hot chocolate.
  6. I wasn’t really allowed to eat junk food or watch TV growing up.  Therefore, during my college freshman year I had a cheeseburger, Cherry Coke, and fries for dinner every night.  While watching Star Trek.*
  7. I’m not really a lawyer.  Pscyh! I really am a lawyer.  But it was a long, and not-straightforward road to get here.

*If you are concerned by the lack of . . . um . . . nutrients during my college and immediate post-college years, rest assured: these days I eat a more varied and healthy diet.

    I also had imaginary animal friends…or rather an entire imaginary zoo. my sister and I took care of it together. it required a lot of work, let me tell you.

      It really is too bad that having imaginary animal friends is frowned upon once you become an adult. DogDebtFreeJD is not a bad substitute, however.
