Random Friday Facts: Late Night Edition

Better late than never, right? This will be short and sweet — I’ve got an early morning ahead.

1. I’m one of a rare breed — I was born in D.C. My dad was in the military and doing his residency at Walter Reed. It may have been okay back in the late 1980s, but that place looks so bleak now. Aren’t they tearing it down?

2. I love road trips, but only up to a certain point. Seven to eight hours is about all I can handle before I’m ready to just be wherever I’m going. This makes the last hour or two of my drive home pretty miserable.

3. One of my dream jobs for a long time has been to write for Travel+Leisure. If someone will pay me to fly around the world and eat and meet interesting people, I’m all for it.

4. I’m an aggressive driver. Living in D.C. will do that to you. Whenever I go home I have to remember that people in the South *don’t* drive like maniacs.

5. I really like to shop but haven’t bought any clothes that are non-tri related (and that I haven’t had to have for an event) since…I don’t know when.

6. I drink chocolate milk every day. Yes, sometimes I am a small child.

7. In high school, I was good at science and math. Now my brain can’t process numbers at all.

8. When I was in elementary school, I loved Nancy Drew books — what, didn’t you? — and wrote mystery stories of my own in a blue spiral notebook with a blue calligraphy pen. I can’t even pretend I wasn’t a huge nerd.

9. I’m told I have no accent, and people have a really hard time identifying where I’m from. Get me in a conversation with my mom/sisters or anyone from home, really, and that Southern drawl will come right out.

10. I hate Paula Deen. And her restaurant. No, we do not stake our entire existence as Savannah residents on her fame and fortune.

I’m at #fitbloggin in Baltimore — it’s not such a terrible city after all — until tomorrow afternoon. Then I have 70-plus miles on the bike with Lauren scheduled for early Sunday morning. What’s your big weekend plan?

  2. I LOVE NANCY DREW! And I had a notebook. I wrote everything in it though, not just murder mysteries.

  3. #6- You and Thomas……..excellent habit!

    #5- You know who will have a few things to say about your negligence…..I feel a NYC shopping weekend in your future!

    #9- The accent only hibernates right? It actually is a part of your DNA.

  4. Ah, my dream job is to work for a travel/leisure magazine, too!!

  5. Even Paula’s mashed potatoes, that have SO much butter in them that there are puddles of butter, won’t do it for you?

    I’d make a trip back to Savannah just to eat at some Mexican restaurant down Abercorn (can’t remember the name) or a slice of Vinnie’s.
