10 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me!

10 Things you probably don't know about me...

1. I do not eat fish. The reason being, someone told me when I was very young (probably 5 or 6) that if you eat fish and choke on a bone, you will die. Crazy right? 

2. I love carrots only when they are raw. I will not eat cooked carrots, YUCK!

3. I am addicted to hoarding school supplies, particularly pens. This is a picture of just 1 basket of pens I have and its a pretty deep basket.

4. I had a 31lb tumor removed from my left ovary in 2014. (Many know this, but I have made some new friends since then, ha ha!)

5. I am hyper-sensitive. I feel it all, all the time. I feel others, all the time. Its a curse, but it also allows me to tune into someone who has something to get off their chest. No matter what it is, people vent to me. I should have been a bartender. 

6. I collect Elephants. 

7. I love Tom Hanks. I think he is the funniest guy (behind Robin Williams of course)...I love all of his movies and if you asked me what my favorite movie of all time, it would be ANY Tom Hanks movie. 

8. I used to freestyle dance in my backyard when I was in elementary school. Us kids would dance to NKOTB, Paul Abdul, Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. When the street lights came on and we all had to go inside, I would take my radio to the back yard and dance some more. Yes, it was the 80's. The late 80's. But everything was about dancing!!

9. I buried something in a time capsule on the Air Force base in Belle Chase, LA when I lived there, I was probably around 10 years old. I have had several dreams about going there and digging it up. I have dream't that the Teen Center (where I hung out religiously) had expanded and they dug up the time capsule and put it on display. In my dream, I put a mixed tape in the time capsule. Today, I couldn't tell you what I put in there. 

10. When I was 14 & 15 I was a camp counselor for the Low Country Girl Scouts. I spent 2 summers at their camp in Monks Corner becoming "Duff" which was my camp nickname.
