5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

1. I talk to myself. Not just mumbling under my breath when I can't find my car keys. I mean I really talk to myself - full blown conversations. Mostly when I am driving alone on a long trip. Hey, it's cheaper than therapy!

2. I am still afraid of the creatures that live in the black hole under my bed. If you stick an arm or leg off of the bed, they can grab it and pull you in and no one will ever know what happened to you. If you line your bed with stuffed animals (now I use pillows), you are protected.

3. I have visions of greatness for myself. In my daydreams, I am the typical heroine of every romance novel ever written - beautiful (but unaware of the beauty), strong yet gentle, always working hard to save the castle/plantation/ranch from the terrible people that would harm me or those I love and take away said castle/plantation/ranch, loved by all, full of amazing secret abilities (ie - is an excellent card player easily reading every player's tells, can speak fluent Italian, is an expert swordsman, etc), charming, has a trusty steed, and did I mention beautiful.

4. I think divided plates are Fantastic! I don't like for my food to touch on my plate. I have really worked at overcoming this affliction. When I was a kid, I would eat one food at a time, starting (usually) with the thing I liked least.

5. I don't fart. If Vol Fan and I are in public and I need to fart (which is never because I don't do that) and it smells or makes a noise (which is never because I don't do that), Vol Fan must claim the fart as his own.
