10 Random Things About Me for the Month of June...

I thought I'd start writing 10 random things about me, for every month that I blog.  Maybe it will give you a little insight, to my crazy antics...maybe?  
Should I let you know that I'm also writing this at 3:30am?  That might explain a few of the below:

1.  There is one word in the English language, that I absolutely detest - hands down.  I can't even bring myself to spell it out - so I'll only say, that it's an adjective usually used to describe warm, chewy and _____ brownies (or cake, or anything that's slightly "soggy", for that matter).  Don't ask why, I just can't stand the word.
2.  However, I have several favorite words:  glockenspiel (just because it's fun to say), abominable (yes, as in the snowman from the classic cartoon Rudolph), quiche (because it looks nothing like it sounds, but tastes oh, so good!), and clandestine (cause I feel sneaky, just saying it), to name a few.
3.  Here's a little math (and no, it's not a trick question!):
  a.  My husband Neal and I have been married for 5 years, this year.

  b.  But we've been together for 11.
  c.  And we've known each other for over 22 - since the 7th grade.  
4.  One of my absolute favorite authors is Roald Dahl.  He is who inspired me when I was a little girl, to become a writer.  The BFG, The Witches, and of course, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are some of my favs.
5.  I for some reason have an issue with putting the caps back on my pens.  I have no idea why...just can't seem to do it - and it drives my husband crazy.
6.  I also tend to leave random lights on, around the house - again, drives my husband batty, and he follows me around, turning them off.  I must be afraid of the dark?
7.  I spent almost 11 years as a Senior Buyer for Eddie Bauer, where I pretty much had every girls dream, of shopping for a living.  But alas, the politics and the constant travel, chewed me up and spit me out.  So for the past 3 years, I've worked in the marketing department for a large cellular company, where everything (and I mean everything!) is magenta.
8.  I now hate pink.
9.  My favorite movie is The Princess Bride.  I know, I know...but it goes way back with my family - and thanks to my brother, my sisters and I can recite almost every line.  No more rhyming I mean it...anybody wanna peanut?  Come on...tell me that's not funny!  Just a little?
10.  I took scuba diving as a class in college - and my Dad called it my underwater basket weaving course.  What can I say, I went to Hawaii Pacific University, lived in Honolulu, couldn't really swim, and was incredibly intimated by the ocean.

So there you have it!  10 random things about me, for the month of June!  Until next month...
