The always interesting and sweet blogger Lauren from Lauren's Thoughts tagged us for a Stylish Blogger award! Thanks so much Lauren! The award involves us telling 7 random facts about ourselves and then linking to some of our favorite blogs! Since there are two of us, we will each write seven random facts!


1. One of my favorite things to do is play piano. It's a huge stress relief for me, and I've been playing since I was in 2nd grade!

2. I not so secretly want a lop eared rabbit. Google them, they are adorable.

3. In high school, I pictured myself living in D.C. and working for the OAS or some other international organization after graduation. I now live in Rochester and work as a writer.

4. In high school, I had cataract eye surgery (something old people normally get) and it corrected my vision enough so that I no longer needed glasses.

5. In college, I interned in the video production department of a the Minor League Baseball team in Rochester. During this time I met a bunch of baseball players who went on to play for the Twins and Yankees. Even though I'm not a major sports fan, I still think it's pretty cool!

6. I think I hold the record number of triple A calls made in one day (three calls, for three different car incidents) thanks to my trusty Dodge Neon.

7. I'm still afraid of the dark, or rather, what could be hiding in the dark. It doesn't matter how old or mature I become, I don't think this will ever change!


1. My hair used to be so long I sat on it. I cut off 3 and a half feet and donated it to Locks of Love when I was 16.

2. I also pictured myself living in DC and working for the OAS when I was in high school. I've got the DC part down, but you need to be fluent in at least 2 languages to work for the OAS.

3. Speaking of being fluent in other languages, one of the things I really want to do is learn another language. Especially now that I'm not in school, I really want to learn. I'm thinking German, or maybe Arabic.

4. I interned with for a summer and wrote a piece about legalization of marijuana in Oregon. It was one of the Top 10 stories of 2008 for the site and was picked up by several other websites. If you Google my name several Legalize Weed websites come up.

5. I want to go sky diving and have 2 tattoos but spiders scare me almost to the point of tears.

6. I know Ben Bailey from Cash Cab. No, I was never in the Cash Cab. I met him in DC when he did a stand up show here.

7. I've had old, used cars since I could drive and know more about their maintenance, how to diagnose issues, and tricks to save you in a bind than most men I know. Ask me what to do if your car is overheating, or if the key literally won't turn in the ignition, or what to do if the lug nuts on your tire are stripped and you cant change a flat, I will have an answer.
