Odd Things About Me

Odd Things About Me

I’m a sucker. I’m a sucker for every little survey or quiz found on Facebook. Resist? Never. Resistance is futile (yes, I’m a geek). I want to know who should be my best friends for life and where I should live for the rest of my life.These are all-important, life-altering decisions! It helps to have an unbiased source in my decision-making. I’m positive that my favorite color and my favorite animal will tell me if I can survive the zombie apocalypse.


In the last couple of days, I’ve seen friends posting answers to a list of questions. I tried to ignore the urge to participate, but after scrolling by the list for the eighth time, I couldn’t stop myself. But, instead of answering on Facebook, as is typical of me, I decided to do it here. So, enjoy as I share 44 odd things about me.
