11 random things about me!
1.  I have been falling asleep to one of the Harry Potter movies every night for at least the last 5 years.
2.  I have insane fake bird fetish.  There are figurines, pictures, and cloth birds in every one of my rooms.
3.  After 11 years of French I can speak about 10 words.  This doesn't stop me from wanting to move  there every waking moment.
4.  I prefer dresses and stockings over jeans and t shirts.
5.  I like to eat any foods that involve something relatively liquid (soup, cereal, yogurt, ice cream) out of a cup rather than a bowl.
6.  I was born in Miami, Florida and started taking Spanish in Kindergarten.  We moved when I was 10 hence having no language skills.
7.  I hate spicy food, unless it's Indian or Korean... I'm such a pansy normally but I can eat kimchi till I cry and sweat.
8.  I haven't "washed" my hair in almost a year.  I went "no-poo" and use baking soda instead.
9.  I have been sleeping with the same stuffed animal since I was 2.  I realized my puppy had no name when I was 15 and decided that Puppy was a perfect name.
10.  Despite living in Colorado I haven't been skiing or camping more than once in the last 10 years.
11.  I am addicted to diet pepsi.  I cut down from 10 a day to around 6.

Mary-Morgan's 11 Questions

  1.  What is your favorite color?  green has always been my favorite color maybe this is due to Doctor Seuss and having "Sam I am green eggs and ham" stuck in my head.
