11 Random Facts About Me

1. I have not dyed my hair since 2007. I have very few grey hairs, so it is all good.

2. I cannot wear clothes that clash, are wrinkled or have a stain on them. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get dressed in the morning

3. I do most of the blog/website¬†maintenance¬†on this site myself. Although I purchased a skeleton theme – I did most of the customizing myself, including the logos, text/colour changes and all the pages. I used to make my own silly websites when I was a teen using html. However – if anything does happen to my blog, I use a local host who can do troubleshooting for me ūüôā

4. I play the cello, piano, violin, guitar and bass guitar. Cello is my main instrument. I play occasionally with the Kanata Symphony

5. I used to work at the Walmart.

6. I have every all the Smashing Pumpkins albums. I also own the Aeroplane Flies High box set, and the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness re-release box set. They are also the only band I’ve seen more than once live. However, I never saw the original line-up play together – I’ve seen all of them, just not together.

7. I do not speak any other languages – but I did take Spanish all throughout high school. I would probably remember most of what I learned if I had time to re-read the language.

8. I’ve never broken a bone – but I have had surgery, stitches and staples.

9. I never went anywhere for spring break while in University. Unless you count going to work…..

10. I don’t watch scary movies anymore. ¬†Too many nightmares….

11. I love pasta – all kinds of pasta. Pasta = yum!!!
