A Few Things About Me

  • I am in my thirties.
  • I am an NC girl, born and raised, and I will probably die here.
  • I didn’t get my license until several months after I turned 16 because I was PETRIFIED of driving.
  • I am legally blind without vision correction.  That would be -9.5 in the left eye and -9.0 in the right. With astigmatism.
  • I have two siblings and they are badass. So are my Mom and Dad.
  • I have 4 tattoos. Planning on several more.
  • Worms on the sidewalk disgust me.
  • Other than worms, I can stomach almost any sight, smell, or discussion.
  • I am a Christian, but not in that “hellfire and brimstone” way. I believe in the Grace of God and I don’t try to force what I believe on anyone.
  • I live nine miles from the beach and am the palest person I know.
  • I didn’t get drunk for the first time until I was 22.
  • I am incredibly clumsy. I often fall while in the privacy of my own home, due partly to the miscellany of items on my floor, and mostly to my screwed-up coordination. Or lack thereof.
  • I didn’t study at all in college and still maintained an okay GPA.
  • I learned to read before I was 4 years old.
  • I have lived alone for years and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.
  •  …except go from a DDD to a C.
  • I am addicted to Coke Zero. Literally.
  • I like my steak medium rare.
  • I love, love, love horror movies and will watch just about anything involving ghosts, zombies, slashers, etc.
  • I am fascinated with stories about serial killers and forensic science. (Did you know you body cools an average of 1 degree per hour after death, depending on clothing, body fat, and environment?)
  • I once watched my car go up in flames on the side of Interstate 40… during a hurricane evacuation.
  • I work in clinical research. I used to love it. Then I hated it. Now I love it again because I’m involved with document review and editing.
  • Before that, I coordinated housing and rotations for medical students. I did NOT love it. EVER.
  • I plan on spending my next a birthday [before I die] in Dublin, Ireland.
  • I LOVE the show Supernatural.
  • I do almost all my clothes shopping online. For me, it beats the hassle of going to a store. I seldom have to return anything, so it works out well.
  • I am both a cat person AND a dog person.
  • I will watch anything that features Morgan Freeman, Mandy Patinkin, or Mark Addy (look him up; you won’t believe all the various roles he’s played).
  • The furthest West I’ve ever traveled is Tennessee.
  • The furthest South I’ve ever traveled is Chichen Itza, Mexico.
  • I absolutely LOVE Louis Armstrong.
  • I collect skeleton keys.
  • I had a best friend for five years who turned out to be the most toxic person I’ve ever met. Live and learn.
  • I’m a sucker for dudes with tattoos.  As long as they’re not the homemade redneck kind.
  • Once a year, I break out in idiopathic hives and get the flu. Not at the same time, though.
  • My fingernails grow at an unnaturally rapid rate (gross). My toenails, however, keep a pretty slow schedule.
  • I hate tomatoes, but will eat almost anything tomato-based: salsa (only the smooth kind though), ketchup, marinara.
  • While I am mainly a horror fanatic, I absolutely love the move “Everafter”. I watch it on a regular basis.
  • I never listen to the radio. Not really on purpose, but that’s how it is.  I have no concept of popular songs unless someone points one out to me (then I usually love it).
