I’m not super interesting today, so I’m going to tell you five random things about myself; like a meme, only more shameless. 😉
-When I see mounted police, I (unconsciously and) unironically call them “horsie cops.” Out loud. To other adults. This may be a relic of not having encountered many officers on horses since early childhood, but, um. Sort of embarrassing.
-I’ve been a vegetarian longer than I was an omnivore; I think it’s probably a permanent change. That said, I can never quite talk myself into veganism—when I start to try, my husband worries. He’s not a vegetarian, but is happy to live in a vegetarian home. I think, though, that he would really mourn the loss of cheese.
-One of my favorite drinks is diet 7-Up mixed with orange juice and a lot of ice. I started drinking it in college, when I’d get up crazy early and have low blood sugar with nausea—I also drank a ton of it when I was pregnant. Now I’m at moderate levels of consumption, and I kind of want to name the concoction.
-I have bangs because I’m convinced that I have a huge forehead (aka “fivehead). My husband doesn’t like them (and at least pretends that he disagrees with me about forehead size), so I’m sort of kind of trying to grow them out, but I’m supposed to get my hair cut on Sunday and really have no idea what to ask for. I have fine, thin, straight hair. And sort of bangs. Both of my sisters have lovely thick hair—they can do anything. [jealous]
-My eyes are getting worse and worse, but I almost never wear my glasses outside the house. It’s not a vanity thing—believe me—I just don’t think of myself as a person who wears glasses. I know how goofy that sounds. I am wearing them more and more now, and I’m always astonished to find that I can see each individual leaf on a tree, or blades of grass. My parents are both wearing bifocals at age fifty, so I probably need to get used to the idea.
