A little about me ...

I thought it was time to for you all to get to know me a bit better... what I like, don't like and should be totally ashamed to admit to the whole wide world on the internet but ehhh  why not! So in no particular order here are some things you should know about the Fabulous Sailing Foodie ;)

  • I LOVE CHEESE!  this is no shocker, but I say a prayer to Grilled Cheesus daily that there is hundreds of cheeses out there for me to enjoy.  You want cake for dessert... not this girl, give me a cheese sampler any day of the week over cake!
  • My want and love for an English Bulldog is kind of scary.  How can anyone resist the face of such a cuddly love bug?
I swwoooon
  • I am about as graceful as a newborn giraffe... I kid you not people!  Don't ever play the scar game with this girl.  I have more scars from stupid tripping incidents than should be allowed on one girl and sadly no awesome stories for them. 
  • Because my hair is an unruly half curly half frizzy beast I will usually go 3 days w/out washing it after it has been straightened. (that is unless I hit the gym, but then it is just a curly mess...)
  • I am 5'9" tall, love wearing 3-4" heels but wish daily I was 5'6" so that I wasn't the tallest person in a bar when I go out.
  • I always feel smart and cool when perusing a book store
  • When people watching I love to be all Mystery Science Theater 3000 and come up with story lines for what they are doing.
  • I am 30 years old and have the mental maturity of a 13 year old boy....
  • I love love love fried food, but fried food HATES me!  Yet I keep going back and trying to eat it..  at least I am keeping TUMS in business
  • The wine opener that waiters use at restaurants scares the beejesus out of me!  I can not for the life of me figure out how to use it.....
  • There is nothing more satisfying to me in this world than a perfectly poached egg.
  • When ordering at a restaurant I usually narrow my option down to 2 entrees and then when asked what I will be having I blackout for .2 seconds and blurt out a completely different option to the waitstaff....never fails!
  • My favorite part of buisness trips is flying.  I love airports and the whole concept of eating on a plane.
  • Grocery shopping to me is a top 5 favorite activity.
  • I believe that a plate of nachos or a tray of appetizers is a completely acceptable dinner.
  • I hate packing!  I am the worst and always overpack one item and forget other stuff.... truly awful!

Ok I think that is enough sharing for one day :)  I am off to the great white North for work today and will have limited access to internet between now and next Wednesday.  I will hopefully get 1 or 2 more posts in before I set sail!

What are some random facts about you all'?  Am I alone with my idiosyncrasies or do you share them with me?
