So let's get started. Maybe we'll all learn something today :)
(I have absolutely no idea if that's true, however, its adorable)
Random Fact #1: Dairy and I do NOT get along. We broke up sometime during middle school and we've never reconciled. Which is to say, I'm super lactose intolerant and I haven't eaten any of these foods in a good 15-20 years: Pizza, ice cream, cheese, yogurt, milk, milkshakes, GIRL SCOUT COOKIES (I know, gasp!), chocolate... Oh the list could go on for days. I know some people think they couldn't live without these things but it's been so long that I honestly don't remember what most of this stuff tastes like anymore! Crazy. If I could cheat death (ok, not death, just extreme pain and discomfort) for a day, there are 2 foods I would love to taste just one more time - a Snickers bar and some bubblegum ice cream. Apparently my dairy taste buds are still stuck back in my 10 year old body :)
Random Fact #2: My career aspirations as a child included becoming a Catholic nun and/or an Olympic gymnast. Not sure if those dreams were mutually exclusive, however I am currently neither! I am however in the midst of redefining my career/life aspirations so I will let you know if anything half as good as those gems comes to the surface.
Random Fact #3: I am a HUGE TSwift fan! I am fully aware I'm in my 30's and her lyrics are targeting a completely different demographic but I can't help it. I've loved her from the very first time I heard her on the radio and I proudly have all of her CD's. (Yes, fun fact 3.5, I still buy CD's.)
Random Fact #4: I have two cats named Mikey and Sal. Being half-Italian I like to say they are part of the Cat Mafia, but their names are actually the names of my two grandfathers (Micheal and Salvatore).
Random Fact #5: I have worn glasses since the FIRST grade. Yes I am that kid. I had the smallest head and the biggest glasses you have ever seen. It was the 80's, but still. I will try to find a picture of them. Big plastic red beauties. Thankfully I finally got contacts in high school.
Random Fact #6: I am in no way, shape or form an actress or model, however I have appeared in the following: A department store ad (when I was about 6), the newspaper (with my sister when we were tots), Cosmopolitan magazine (a few years ago in Dove ad), and as an extra in the HBO show Veep (a few months ago). I didn't earn money for most of these things, however the 5 seconds of fame basically made it all worth it!
Well I guess that's about it for the first installment. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me and don't think I'm too weird. Ha!
I'd love to get to know you too. If you'd like, you can share some fun facts about yourself in the comments.
Or, let me know if you liked this piece and I'll do another one sometime :)
