I always, without fail, choose the wrong line at the grocery store.
My favorite word is gloaming. I hate the word 'nonplussed', because it means exactly the opposite of what it sounds like. I like maps, and trivia, and books. I like things that come in sample sizes--even though I tend to feel guilt about the packaging. I don't like it when people pass on the right, or get upset when they have to pee outside.
My favorite state I've never been to is Maine. My favorite country I've never been to is Scotland. I eat cheese like it's my job.
I was also recently accepted to graduate school. In August I'll start taking classes again for the first time since 2002. Are the kids still using highlighters? I love highlighters. If there is no highlighting in grad school, I might have to rethink this whole shebang. UPDATE: Hooray!
