If you really knew me, you'd know that...
+ I've been adding crushed pepper to a lot of my meals lately which is peculiar, because anything with a dash of spicy goodness lights my mouth on fire. (It's pure culinary masochism.)
+ I speak profane words all too often (usually when joking around), but I've realized it mostly happens when I'm with my husband. It must be love.
+ It is very common that I end up with multiple pairs of socks buried in our bed sheets by week's end. I go to sleep with socks on, but they almost never stay on 'til morning. When laundry day comes, I have to do a sock rescue search on my side of the bed.
+ I was never formally engaged. There was no proposal. Neither of us are bothered by that, and those who truly know us wouldn't be surprised. We're completely happy, and we do life the way we want to!
+ I am left-handed.
+ I hate it when someone purposely scare me as a joke. Standing around a corner and waiting to yell "boo" at me? It isn't funny, and if I accidentally hit you in defense, it's really not funny (for you). Consider yourself warned!
+ I am lactose intolerant.
+ I am Guamanian and Filipino. Oddly, Filipinos don't believe I am Filipino, and Mexicans assume I am Mexican. And when I lived in NYC, everyone thought I was Hawaiian. (Close!) I was told countless times that I looked "exotic" -- which made me think "dancer". How's that for word association? :-)
+ I believe that family is chosen as much as it is biological. Relationships are more important than blood lines. Family is created.
+ I always have a small bottle of stevia in my purse.
+ I really want to go to graduate school. Michelle and I are embarking on the journey together (and holding each other accountable)!
+ Car rides are very soothing to me, and I can easily fall asleep if I'm in the passenger seat.
+ I do not believe in love at first sight, and I do not believe that there is only one true soul mate for each of us.
+ I told my parents I wanted to change my name to Lilli when I was 5 or 6, so I could share the name with the near-sighted feline tightrope artist on Dumbo's Circus. Please tell me you've seen this classic Disney TV show circa 1985!
+ I wish I was a jazz singer.
+ Sunglasses are a permanent fixture on my head. If I'm not wearing them over my eyes, they're on my head as a headband. I'm a San Diego girl through and through, I guess.
What don't I know about you?
Oh, and happy Friday eve!
