It’s time again for factoids you may or may not know about me.(Missed the first round? See it here.) Because, even though you read my blog and feel you know me, do you really?

1)    Colored lights on my Christmas tree are against my religion. A white light base with a colored light string in a slightly larger bulb size might happen. There are 800 white twinkle lights on my tree.

2)    I love me some Libra. Just, loyal, and devoted sorts. I collect them. Husband and best friends.

3)    My PMS food is Pad Thai with shrimp.

4)    I once auditioned for Baltimore’s Everyman Theater company. They didn’t let me finish the audition.

5)    I was Television and Film major in college. When these subjects plus journalism, marketing, and advertising comprised mass communications.

6)    My career in TV and Film consisted of production assistant positions at WBAL-TV and Truckstop Productions, a small film company in Baltimore. Way too much work for the money and most of the people in TV were a-holes. Ironically, my husband is the exception to the rule.

7)    My current “obsessed with” accent color is aqua. Except for my current home  Christmas decorating. But I’ve designed it into other people’s trees.

8)    The one Christmas present I keep hoping for is a vintage top hat or bowler. Seeing The Age of Innocence clinched my need with Scorsese’s shot of the sea of hats.

9)    I will leave no white walls unpainted.

10) And I am a sloppy dish loader. I’m a rinser but have no patience for puzzle fitting the dishes into the appliance. They’re in there so they’ll get washed however willy nilly they’ve been placed.


  1. Jane, to explain. Although,I was born under a Libra moon, I am a Virgo so I love myself, of course.I collect Virgo friends because they are earthy, funny, creative,and thoughtful. And devoted friends as well. Both Grandmother and Father were/are Virgos proving this can not always a be a good thing. I struggle against perfectionism and that I believe is the Virgoan Achilles heel.But I tell my husband to not out-Virgo the Virgo.
    Love Ya’,
    PS So which September day does your birthday fall on?

    Shalagh, I didn’t know these things about you! Libras rule!! I love Pad Thai with chicken. PMS time, I must have a burger. I love the decorating too, but I’m not that good at it. I, too, have no patience for dishloading. My husband actually reloads the dishwasher after I do it! I hope you get a bowler hat for Christmas!

    • Yes on the burger!MR please with fried onions. And yes, the husband reloads if he gets the chance. And then, after wasting his time doing that, he leaves big dishes for “later”. I get a baby for Christmas so I actually am not allowed to wish for anything else for a long time. Thanks so much Amy.
