Day 1: A photo of yourself with 10 facts.

  1. I’m writing this late at night after attending the fabulous Death Cab for Cutie/Magik*Magik Orchestra concert at the Tennessee Theatre.
  2. I’ve lived in the South for 25 years and have never tried grits.
  3. I think my naturally dark hair looks like a bad dye job when compared to my daughter’s much lighter hair.
  4. I wish sleep make-up days were a real thing and a legitimate excuse for work.
  5. I have Spidey sense when it comes to detecting unmarked/hidden police cars when I’m driving.
  6. President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863. (Hey, the prompt list says 10 facts. It didn’t say they all have to be about me.)
  7. I love that most days at work I actually learn something new by virtue of what I edit.
  8. I’m amazed at the number of people who land on my blog by using the search term “Good Will Humping.” Especially of late. (Seriously, did they make a sequel?)
  9. I continue to hold out hope that the reality TV craze will wane. But I admit it’s been a long, frustrating wait so far.
  10. I hate that my eyes are usually so exhausted after a workday spent on the computer that it’s almost painful to read at night.

Lastly, here’s my mugshot.
