Le 25 Random Things About Me


1. When I go to foreign countries I LOVE to go to supermarkets and discount stores, just to see what they have. I always make sure to look at the chocolate, soaps and shampoo. This is why I have socks from Ireland and gummi bears from Germany.

2. I am a gummi bear racist and will eat them in the following order of preference: red, green, orange, the other pale ones.

3. I am secretly planning a world tour with a friend where the only song we will play is Michael Jackson's 'Earth Song', and actually just the part where he throws himself on the ground and screams with his shirt open. Our performance will consist of taking turns standing in front of a wind machine, sliding across the stage and screaming "ahhhhh" together with Michael.

4. I was born in Bavaria and like any true Bavarian, began drinking beer with my dad when I was 4.

5. After a long day at work I go home and eat olives out of a jar, standing up, with one foot over the other.

6. I think I would make a great spy, and would wear red boots all the time.

7. I constantly practice for a guest appearance on Oprah one day. Usually I work on my jokes and what I will be wearing. The outfits vary depending on the reason I am on her show. If it is to promote a book, I would wear boots. If I saved the world, I think I would have to go more low key and go with stilettos. On both occassions, though, my hair would be fabulous.

8. I still cuddle with my sister.

9. I love my clothes, bags and shoes and have been told that I treat them like people. I think that is a nice compliment because I never throw any away and won't let anyone else wash them lest they get ruined.

10. I love fixing things and am handy. When I was little I used to follow the handy men around the house and just watch them fix stuff. That was awesome.

11. I love watching cooking shows. I find it soothing.

12. I can recognize almost any joke that has been on Friends and can usually pinpoint it to the episode.

13. I am HYPER organized and clean. If you use the wrong sponge in my home you get a dirty look and I get an anxiety attack.

14. When I am happy I dance.

15. Listening to Madonna makes me very happy, especially her older music and her older interviews.

16. If I was forced to give up one of my languages, I think it would be English or German. I can't give up Azerbaijani because I can't do that to my parents, and French is just too pretty.

17. I don't know how you would be forced to give up a language, but I think you should be mentally prepared for any scenario.

18. Buttons on a duvet cover HAVE to be on top, otherwise I will not sleep there.

19. I often play out a scenario in my head of my airplane getting hi-jacked, and what I would do to defeat the bad guys. Again, I just like to be mentally prepared.

20. I hate megaphones and when I hear protestors yelling into them I always have the impulse to run into a bunker and hide from the oncoming war.

21. I hate conflict.

22. When I moved to NY I did not bring a winter coat. I did however bring a pink-feather evening purse and hello kitty stickers. They did not keep me warm.

23. When I finish a really good book, I sometimes get homesick for it. The last such book I read was 'One Hundred Years of Solitude'.

24. Sometimes I am scared of the dark and I have to convince myself there is no one there.

25. I keep all of my shoes in shoe boxes and have them labeled with post its. The labels include a name and an abstract drawing of the shoe. Some find this funny. I find it very normal and necessary.
