Getting a Little Personal
I wanted to do something a little different today, just for kicks. I thought it would be fun to get a little personal.
Sometimes it feels strange sitting behind my computer screen sharing recipes, stories of daily life, and on some days baring a little piece of my soul. Yet aside from a handful of comments, I never really know who’s reading along.
I do receive regular reader emails, Facebook comments, pins, and tweets, so I know you’re out there. For those of you who don’t make contact, I see you in my site analytics program, so I know you’re out there as well. *wink*
And don’t worry…. I read a lot of blogs and often don’t leave comments either.
I just wish there was a way to get to know each other a little better. So here’s an idea. I’d like to conduct a little “activity” today so we can get better acquainted.
I’m going to tell you 5 non-food related facts about me, silly but personal stuff.
Then would you tell me 5 things about you?
Or even ONE?
Let’s give this a try….
5 Things about me you probably don’t know:
I like british period films (think BBC) AND zombie movies, equally. If anyone ever produces a zombie version of Pride and Prejudice, I’m all in.
You know how kids lie when they’re in middle school to impress their friends? I used to tell people I was born on a sailboat. Because obviously, all cool kids are born on a sailboats. (Honestly, what was I thinking?) If any junior high friends are reading along, sorry!
Before I go to bed, I often lay in the dark and play Yahtzee on my iPad. Yes, it’s old-school. Yes, there are much cooler iPad games these days. Yes, there are plenty of books I could be reading. What can I say, Yahtzee relaxes me and brainlessly washes away the craziness of the day.
On a side note, when I do pick up a novel, I turn into a book junky and can’t put it down. I usually devour the entire book in one night which makes for a VERY cranky following day. I’ve been caught, on several occasions, reading the last chapter of a thick novel at 6:30 in the morning, after I started reading it at 10 pm the night before.
Yahtzee is safer.
I’m a cryer. Yep, bring on the water works. Whether I’m happy, sad, angry, embarrassed, beaming with pride, frustrated, or confused, I get teary-eyed. Can’t help it, it’s got to be a genetic thing. Even the burly men in my family are cryers.
The strange thing is, I’m not really all that sensitive. Or at least I don’t get my feelings hurt very easily. But I do cry. A lot.
As a kid, I used to day dream about being a broadway singer. My mom and I watched all the old broadway shows together on video (and some live performances.) I would learn every word of my favorite songs and belt them out when no one was around.
Can I sing? No.
But that never stopped me from putting on one heck of a show in the bathroom mirror.
Now your turn; I’m dying to know.
Tell me five interesting things about you! …or just ONE good one.
And for those of you who have never left a blog comment, I invite you to give it try. It’s painless, fun, therapeutic, and your email address remains private.
Tell me about YOU!
