15 Facts About Me

August 2, 2011

While catching up with blogs today, I found a post from a fellow blogger about 15 fun facts about her.  I became inspired to write my own 15 so here we go!

  1. I have a fascination with the mafia.  I know they are horrible, unmerciful, dangerous and dirty people, but the history amazes me.  Maybe it’s because I’m Italian, maybe it’s the danger involved.  I have read books, watched movies and television shows based on the mafia and quite frankly, I can’t get enough!
  2. I have had a horrible nail biting habit since I was a child.  I’ve grown my nails out many times, but they never stay long for too long.  I either bite them or they break.
  3. I wish the 80’s would come back including LA Gear high tops, big hair, hair metal and Trans Am’s with T-tops.  I am such a child of the 80’s and apparently my adult self never left that period in time.
  4. I was never a so-called “chocoholic” until last year when I signed up for Godiva’s reward program.  Now I’m a self-proclaimed Godiva junkie.
  5. I love the feeling in the air between November and December.  Once Thanksgiving comes and you know Christmas is around the corner, everything feels magical.
  6. If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, it would probably be pizza.  Pizza for breakfast, pizza for lunch and pizza for dinner.  I’m all for it!
  7. There are three things I have an absolute weakness for: adorable little babies, elderly people in the grocery store and puppies.  I can’t go near a pet store without wanting to whip out the credit card and save the puppies.  If I could buy the elderlies and babies I probably would take them home, too.
  8. I like to cook, but I hate most food smells.  By that I mean the smells that linger in the kitchen after you cook.  They’re not necessarily bad smells, I just don’t want them hanging in the air.  Oddly enough, the one smell I love is garlic that’s been cooked in olive oil. 
  9. While e-mail is quick and easy, I still write letters and send cards and postcards. 
  10. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but when I do it’s usually Jeopardy, Soapnet, NatGeo, Discovery, Bio, TV reruns or a movie channel.  Lucky for me, Mike dorks out on the same kind of TV.
  11. I dream of retiring on farmland.  I want property I can create a large garden on and I want to have a little roadside stand to make a little money off of. 
  12. I am definitely a morning person.  I feel most productive and energetic once I wake up.  I get much more done in the morning than I do at night.
  13. I won’t deny it–I love Britney Spears. 
  14. I hate sweating.  I know it’s a natural thing, but if I am going to sweat profusely I need a shower and a change of clothes nearby.
  15. I constantly correct grammar.  I am a perfectionist when it comes to grammar and I will probably proofread this post a few times to make sure my grammar is correct.
