6 Quirky Things

Okay fine, since I've now been technically tagged by both Christy AND Amy, I'll play along. Here are 6 quirky (or at least pretty random) facts about me:

1) I have owned, in my 26 years, 13 pets - 5 dogs, 4 cats, 3 horses, and 1 very random run-in with a box turtle named Toby (NOT Tobi). Of these, only three of them have been female. What can I say, I love my boys ;)

2) In college I did a study abroad program at Oxford University in England. My first night there my nebulizer caught fire. I didn't even try to bring my Vest.

3) My random obsession is probably colored lights. I love things that sparkle or light up, and I cannot get enough of shiny things. I have old friends who tease me about my "inner raccoon" because I am so drawn to anything that catches light. I would probably do really really well as a Vegas cocktail waitress if I ever leave the law firm. That or working somewhere with lots of stained glass.

4) I grew up listening to Marlo Thomas and "Free to Be...You and Me." I still know most of the words to a lot of the songs: Parents are People, William Wants a Doll, and of course the theme.

5) Dogs (and most animals really) LOVE me. I don't honestly know why. It could be because I really like them, or it could be because I'm basically a living salt lick. Whatever the reason, they literally stop in the street and try to jump up on me. I don't mind.

6) I decided I wanted to be a lawyer at around age 6 and pretty much never questioned myself again. There was a brief period in college when I thought I wanted to be an English prof, though, so I actually applied to some law schools jointly with PhD programs. My parents saved me from that mistake just in time...I would have like 6 years of school left!

Okay, that's it. If you read this, consider yourself "tagged."
