About

Hi, I run this website and it’s more about my fascination with a court reporter job than anything else. So here is a few things about me:

  1. I live in NY and Love it!
  2. I am getting ready for my final Regents test and I am planning my future.
  3.  I love the color red.

2. I am not sure I’ll be able to make it to 100.

3. I have two cats

7. I haven’t let my hair grow back to its natural colour for something close to six years now. But it’s never very far from the natural colour because I’m too much of a chicken to really dye it something bold.

8. I have no tattoos.

9. I had my ears pierced when I was 12, lost a pair of diamond earrings when I was 17, and have been trying to pretend my ears aren’t pierced ever since.

10. I once won the Latin Dance Championship.

11. I had to quit ballroom dancing because of a series of foot injuries, most noticeably stepping on a chunk of glass and then having a shard left in my big toe for nearly 7 months.

12. I have no cavities.

13. I’ve never smoked anything – not even pot.

14. I’m not Catholic but I’ve taken communion at least four times.

15. I love rain.

16. I hate excessively hot days and I get a rash on my hands when it’s more than 28 degrees or so. Explaining this to a pharmacist in Tarifa, Spain was one of the most challenging events of my honeymoon there.

19. I don’t like chocolate except for Bernard Callebaut.

20. I drink Coke, never Pepsi.

21. I drink gin & tonics, never tequila.

23. I’ve only cheated on a boyfriend once, in grade 10, and damn did it ever feel bad, so I’ll never do it again.

24. I used to have many more friends than I do now, but I believe my friendships now are closer and stronger and will last a lifetime.

 

25. Despite all my thanking god, I don’t believe in one.

26. I don’t go to nightclubs anymore because I hate having to think of something cute to wear.

27. I often have dreams about flying in airplanes.

28. I also occasionally dream about my teeth crumbling and falling out of my mouth, which I once read is a reflection from your subconscious of events occurring which signify a growing up or maturing stage. Apparently I grow up a lot.

29. I used to have nightmares about my house being on fire and not making it to the door in time.

30. As a result, I am deathly afraid of in-house smoke alarms.

31. The sound of styrofoam pieces rubbing together, or even THINKING about the sound, gives me awful goose shivers.

32. I’d like to get married again so I can wear a different dress. And keep it this time, probably.

33. I love to play board games.

34. I have an older brother who is 17 months older than me.

35. I never liked my brother until we were old enough to drink together.

36. My parents divorced when I was 12, and we’re all much friends as a result. I know my parents as adults and as people, and I value their advice and opinions because I have no illusions about them. This is something I wish I could give my children but I’m not sure how to do it without getting a divorce, which I’m not willing to do.

37. I am always afraid that I will drop a baby when someone asks me to hold one.

38. I’d rather change cat litter than change a diaper or take out the garbage.

39. I don’t have a favorite food, nor are there any foods that I wouldn’t try eating at least once. (This precludes any kind of reptile or insect).

40. I make really good blueberry pancakes and I can make pastry from scratch and it turns out just fine.
