1. I have an excellent memory, dates and times especially.

7. I don’t like to drive.
8. I am a woman who doesn’t like to tie her shoes.

10. I love watching House because he says what I’m thinking, and Monk because I feel like there’s someone else in the world who understands what OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) feels like.
11. My birth was planned in more ways than one. I was due April 12th of 1977 on a Tuesday. My mom wanted me to be born on April 5th, her father’s birthday. My mom spoke my birth on that day into existence by telling one of her friends she would see her at the hospital on the Tuesday the 5th. Tuesday, April 5th, 1977, I was born 15 minutes away from being an April 6th baby. Either way, I would have been born on a Tuesday. I’m glad because I’ve heard that Wednesday’s child is full of woe.
