25 Random Facts About Me

  1. I am very introverted, so it’s a bit surprising that I decided to take over leadership of a meetup group on meetup.com. The group is basically a social one, an excuse to get out there and have new experiences while meeting new people. I figure I can handle doing this once a week.
  2. I toyed with being a pagan last year. I bought a lot of supplies such as different colored candles, a bowl and pestle for grinding herbs, a copious amount of essential oils, and a cauldron. Yes that’s right, a cauldron. It cost me close to $30 for a miniature cauldron off of etsy. So  far I haven’t burned anything in my cauldron but I did attempt a few rituals and spells.
  3. I am seriously considering attending a convocation in February. The details about this event can be found at convocation.org. A friend of mine from online whom I have never met is going and says she would love to meet me there. It all looks very interesting.
  4. When I was in the Navy I helped build President Bush’s flight suit for when he landed on the aircraft carrier.
  5. I still have little pins from when I was in elementary school and I won second place in the spelling bee and I was on the academic honor roll. I still have some pins and patches from when I was in the Brownies. I will probably still have these when I die, at which point they will be garbage because at this point I have no children or anyone to care about them.
  6. I can be somewhat depressing sometimes
  7. I love basset hounds, I will probably have a basset hound as a companion for the rest of my life.

  14. I love my house and in a way I wish I never have to leave it. I wish I could transport it to a place with warmer weather.

  17. I like to play black jack but most of the time I am too scared to take the risk.

  1. When I was 11, I convinced the kids in my neighborhood that I could talk to the birds. And make it rain. Of course, I’d wait until there were plenty of rain clouds overhead, then I’d dance in some kind of pseudo-native fashion. They believed me.
