Who's that Girl?


Happy Friday: Tell Me About You

Happy Friday!

I had a HR-related post all ready to go for today but woke up and feeling happy and a little silly.  Instead of running something traditional, I thought I’d go for something more fun.  Some of the posts I like to read on other blogs are the ones that tell me about the writer on a personal level.  With that in mind, here are a few “fun facts” that I wouldn’t normally share, but hey, we’re all friends, right?

  • I am afraid of raccoons and tiny frogs.
  • My favorite flower is the alstroemeria.  I hate red roses.
  • I think all women should be able to change tires, spark plugs, headlights, etc.  I can do mine, and have.  Last time I changed my tire was several years ago when I had my jeep.  And yes, I was in a skirt and heels on the way to work.
  • I am not afraid to admit that I like Prince and Rick Springfield.
  • I once met Colin Powell and he was the coolest man ever.
  • I used work with one of President Regan’s press secretaries.  He’s one of the most interesting people I’ve ever known.
  • If I ever turn on the tv and ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ is on, I MUST watch it right then at whatever part of the movie it is.
  • I hate drama.
  • I don’t like to boo hoo about problems or difficulties- I am definitely a “mind over matter” kind of girl and I just let it all make me stronger and stronger.
  • I am a horrible singer but I am the entertainer of my family.
  • I am a good cook.  I love to make up recipes and I DON’T measure.
  • I like risk.
  • I like to be independent, but what I really like is to be taken care of once in awhile.
  • I am silly.
  • I am kinda smart.
  • I took piano lessons for 9 years, most of which were from a nun.
  • I have 3 dogs and a fish I love.
  • I like to drink Mic Ultra from a bottle- NO glass for me.

So, why don’t you tell me about you in the comments?  What are some of the fun facts I don’t know?
