50 True Things

1. I will not give the time of day to "Supermarket Stalkers". You know who you are. You have tables and pens and try to get me to sign/donate or express interest in your Fill in organization/charity here. (This rule does not apply to those pedaling girlscout cookies).

5. I believe my marriage is very much like my parents and that makes me happy.

6. The dream I had last night was that Howard Stern was electrocuting one of my cats, Bacon. It was horrifying.

7. The dream I had the other night involved hanging out with my friend Jenni from college, Christine from work, Angelina Jolie and Camryn Manheim. WTF?

I think it's scary that I have my own tag. Should anyone question any of these odd things I can verify every single one.. except the reading of Red October...I didn't know that, that book seems out of character for you.
