a blogging rite of passage

At this point in my blogging career, I felt it appropriate to compile the obligatory list of random facts and personal insights to share with you, my 1-2 faithful readers. Enjoy.

I fell in love with (twice), and married my high school sweetheart. Sickening, isn't it.

I am obsessed with Ovaltine, chocolate malt flavor.

I love black, but hate navy. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I stand against all that navy represents. It's so classic, so Talbots, so inextricably linked with sensible flat shoes and blazers with gold buttons.

My hatred of clutter borders on the compulsive. (I believe I inherited this trait from my mother, although oddly it was latent until just a couple of years ago.)

I am probably one of the least germaphobic people you'll ever meet. God gave us immune systems for a reason, people. (side note: it's bothering me that I don't know how to spell "germaphobic.")

On a related topic, I've always prided myself on my excellent spelling.

I tend to overuse parentheses. (But you already knew that.)

I will go to extreme lengths to avoid vomiting.

I have an overactive conscience.

I am an equal opportunity reader. I will happily go from reading One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich to A is for Alibi to the nutritional facts on the back of my cereal boxes, and love every word.

I really enjoy a good casserole.

One of my shallower life goals is to identify and capture the perfect pink lip gloss - the Yeti of the cosmetics world. At this point, the closest I have found would have to be a combination of Almay Raisin Glow and Clinique New Rain, but I will not give up until I find this elusive creature in a single tube.

I always pay my bills on time.

For some reason I've never really mastered the proper use of chopsticks.

On that note, I'm also not very good at shuffling cards.

Oh well. I'm sure I could think of some others, but frankly you probably have more important things to do right now. And so do I, since it's dinnertime and I am planning to hunt through my fridge for some leftover casserole.

We have quite a lot in common except that I'm a pretty good card shuffler. I'm looking forward to reading more about your pregnancy and the arrival of your little one. Best of luck with everything.
