For Your Information... 11 things

1.  I truly believe that Diet Coke has magical powers.   Like a magic wand.  Or crack.

2.  I have grand, albeit soggy, fantasies of being proposed to in the rain.  I have no idea where this comes from, but it is the most romantic thing I can imagine.

3.  Sometimes I wonder about the ramifications of modern medicine... if you are a fertility baby like me, are we somehow genetically stunted?  If we wouldn't have existed at all without such strong help... what kind of social-emotional ramifications are lurking for us (read: me)?  It is my own special existential crisis in waiting, I guess.  Oh... first world problems.

4. When I was about three, I had an incredibly graphic and memorable dream that single handedly initiated my deep and lifelong fear of tornadoes.  I remember so many details of that dream, but more upsetting, I remember trying desperately trying to tell my parents why I was so upset and they just didn't understand.  It was a very sad day.

5.  I don't really understand social media.  I like the idea of twitter and facebook and tumblr and whatnot... but who has the time?  I can't even get to the gym on the regular - let alone fill my day with witty commentary in 140 characters or less.  ...Thus proving I am getting old. 

6.  If I don't love a book enough to miss it after the last page is turned, I cannot deem it worthwhile.  Any book I claim to be a favorite has been read at least 3 times.  At least.

7.  My next international adventure will be to Bosnia and Herzegovina.  It has been on the top of my list for a long time and was a huge fave of my traveling friends while in the Peace Corps.  I feel it will be a slightly craggy and off-the-beaten-path tonic for my raging wanderlust.  Either that or it will make it rage all the more... but I'm pretty good with that.

8.  I have a brownish-green thumb.  But I so want a garden.  Flowers, veg... the works.  I love fresh food and even though I kind of hate summer heat and humidity - it so doesn't jive with my uber pale/sensitive skin - I love digging around in the dirt and having something tangible to show for your hard work.

9.  When I was little, I wanted glasses so much I tried to lie on my vision tests to trick the school nurse into thinking I needed glasses.  Totally didn't work.  Now that I have them for realsies and can't see my own face without them... I still love them.  Hands down my favorite accessory and the excitement of getting new ones is just more than I can bear.

10.  Ever since I was a little kiddo hanging out with my grandma on the farm, I've kind of secretly wanted to become a housewife.  I'm also secretly kind of horrified that I would find it incredibly boring and that I just might make the literal worst stay at home mom ever.  So there's that.

11.  My favorite thing in life is to listen to someone you love's heartbeat through their chest.  There is nothing better.  Nothing.
