10 Fun Facts

Posted by eemilla on October 25, 2009

Thanks to Nicole at Forthright Fattie for the Honest Scrap Award.  Here are my ten unknown to the internet world facts:

1.  I participated in Mock Trial in high school, but I am no good at off the cuff so my attorney dreams died.

2.  Even though I’m all about reducing emissions, I love to drive fast, and I want to be able to drive fast around curves without worrying about sharing the road.

3.   I always thought I would die before I turned 27.

4.  Until I started sleeping with my husband, I had never used the snooze button.

5.  My first car, Tilly, was in Patch Adams.  They used it for two or three weeks, and I got $800.  My parents and I purchased the car for $900.

6.  Over Thanksgiving break traveling through SC on 85, I received two speeding tickets (one on the way home and the other on the way back).

7.  I love dystopian novels and movies (The Handmaid’s Tale, 1984, Brave New World, V for Vendetta).

8.  If I weren’t so cheap, I would have a coffee habit.

9.  The traffic in Atlanta drove me to smoke the entire time I (kinda) lived there.

10.  Although I’ve never really lived anywhere aside from AVL (even when I lived in the ATL, I was back home about once a month) and it feels so much like home, I think anywhere that my honey and kitties and doggy and good food are could be home.

If you’re so inclined, leave a link in the comments with your ten unknowns.

    Wow, that is so cool about Tilly being in Patch Adams! What kind of car was she? Did Robin Williams drive her?

    I don’t know if I could think of 10 Fun Facts. Let’s see…ummm…I met Leo Kottke in a bar once and he was really, really nice. I felt pretty shy, but I got to ask him what kind of music he listens to, which was cool.

    Tilly was a white 1964 Mercury Comet, but I don’t think Robin Williams drove her. I believe she was parked in front of a cabin that they visited. I’ve never met any really famous musicians, aside from a couple of members of The Trainwreks.

    Dude, Mock Trial sounds awesome! I was the president of my high school speech team, and Mock Senate was my favorite.
    Thanks for doing the 10 facts!
