Vanessa asked me to post eight random facts about myself, and if there's one thing I can do, it's random! So here goes:

1. I'm left-handed.

2. I've eaten *real* Brunswick stew, the kind that's cooked outdoors in a big pot and has squirrel in it.

3. I hate driving in Washington DC, but I love driving in New York City.

4. I didn't have cable tv until 2000. (It wasn't--and still isn't--available where I grew up, and I refused to get it ("Why should I pay to watch tv?" was my battle cry) until I caught a marathon of Homicide on Court TV in late 1999. The prospect of seeing my beloved Homicide on a regular basis made me fold like a piece of laundry. Naturally, Court TV only ran Homicide for a few months, but by then, I was hooked on having more than five channels to watch)

5. I can't drink soda with caffeine in it anymore, but when I could, I used to love buying a bottle of Pepsi (and it must be Pepsi--it's a Southern thing), and tossing in salted peanuts. It sounds gross, but it makes the Pepsi salty and sweet, and, as some of you know, I love that.

6. I hate spiders because when I was about eight, I woke up one night to find one ON MY FACE.

7. Once, back when I was selling pantyhose, a flasher came into the store. I was reading a book, and didn't even notice him until he cleared his throat a bunch of times. When I looked up, I was so annoyed that he'd bothered me (you can see what a model employee I was), I said, "Can't you see I'm busy?" and went back to my book. Never saw the guy (or his junk) again.

8. My husband and I had our first real date on Valentine's Day. We went to the movies and saw Silence of the Lambs. If I hadn't known he was the guy for me before then, that clinched it.

Thanks for playing, Elizabeth. It's amazing what great stories come out of these random lists. I got a good giggle of #7!
