1. I used to really despise computers. Like whine and cry to John every time I sat in front of one. Back in college I was a mac girl and John decided to venture out on a limb and buy our first family pc. Since I was quite the technical dinosaur, even this little change freaked me out, and I begged for a familiar mac. However, my love for clothes outweighed my fear of computer platforms, and I sold my soul, along with my computer vote, all over one lousy lavender twin-sweater-set from Nordstroms. And can you believe, that years later, I'm now jumping for joy for getting a brand-spankin-new computer for my birthday?! And it's a mac too! We've gone full cycle.
Speaking of birthdays, I hereby declare all of September my birthday month. I am currently accepting presents and well-wishes for the entire month:) I just found this old birthday photo, from my college days with dear friend Laura. Hey--no comments on the hair! 2. I used to work at Magic Mountain. No, not running the cool rides(which, btw, you should fear for your lives on those rickety rides, because the whole park is run by teenagers). I worked in a toy shop and that is where I learned to juggle balls(for reals)and memorize sales taxes. Like, I know off the top of my head, that if something is $19.99, it will be $21.44. Assuming 7.25% tax, that is. Useful information folks! Because nobody uses credit cards or anything...
3. I cannot believe I am going to tell you this...Ok, remember Lincoln Logs? Remember those green wooden sticks used for the roofs? Well, as kids, Jess and I used to put toothpaste on the green sticks and then put them in the freezer, making minty popsicles. And then we would lick the frozen toothpaste off as dessert...oh, I cannot go on. I'm grossing out just thinking about it.
