Thirteen Random Facts I'm writing just as they come to me... 1. I am addicted to Chai Lattes from Starbucks, coffee from a friend's coffee shop here in Tucson, and Diet Coke. 2. I think Channing Tatum is sexy, even though he's a wooden actor and doesn't look too bright (and I don't usually find dumb sexy). 3. I was recognized at my high school graduation for not missing a single day of school in 10-1/2 years, which is funny because as soon as I got to college I skipped classes all the time - still graduated with honors, though. 4. I love Care Bears - especially Grumpy Bear. 5. I met my awesome husband on a setup by my sister and her husband (the day of their wedding.) 6. I named my daughter Persephone, my dogs Andromeda and Cerberus, and my son...Craig. It's a family name. 7. I got my start in Roswell fan fiction (and so did a certain very high profile agent/published author many of us know - we wrote at the same time) and still think the authors in the fandom are pretty incredible writers - some not all. 8. I'm not a Twi-hard, but I'm not a Twi-hater - I like the books, but I make fun of them too. Figure that one out. 9. I think a particular highly-regarded self-published book that everyone fawns all over on Amazon is a trite piece of crap - it reads just like a newbie fan fiction, has a weak backstory, and is downright cheesy in parts - but I'm obsessed because it's popularity completely mystifies me. 10. I teach ELD (think ESL) during the day, but because the school I'm at is slightly more affluent and has less of a population of non-English speakers, I get to frig around on my computer for almost two hours a day. 11. I hate shopping and while I have many pairs of shoes, there are only two pairs I wear with any regularity: black dress shoes and white/pink Reeboks, and they're both closed-toed. I hate, hate, hate open-toed shoes, b/c I hate having cold feet when I'm inside and the A.C. is on, and I hate the way my feet feel when they sweat - and in the Arizona summers, your feet sweat like crazy. Blugh! (Shudders) 12. I would rather be in a long-sleeve T-shirt and a soft pair of jeans than any other outfit in the world. 13. My butt gets numb when I drink too much caffeine - is that weird?
