Here’s to 32 years

Happy Lunar New Year! And also it’s my 32nd birthday. I honestly don’t know how I got this old. But since this is my blog and I do what I want around here I thought I would share some random things about myself in my honor. We’re all allowed to be a little narcissistic on our birthday, right?

Here are 32 things you may or may not know about me:

  1.  I wouldn’t be caught dead in the color yellow (unless I’m strangled with caution tape).
  2. I listen to podcasts every morning while getting ready for work.
  3. I’m obsessed with true crime. I’m really sad I didn’t come up with the podcast My Favorite Murder.
  4. My favorite shows as a kid were Rescue 9-1-1 and Unsolved Mysteries (I heard there’s a reboot!).
  5. I’m an ice cream fanatic from way back.
  6. I survived an ostrich attack. Ask me about it.
  7. I can talk endlessly about dogs, names, and dreams.
  8. My nails are painted 95% of the time.
  9. I had an imaginary friend named Krisen (Kristen without the T) that lived down a hilly road.
  10. I waved at Hilary Duff, Kelly Clarkson, and Justin Guarini in a hotel lobby in Los Angeles.
  11. My grandmother took me to a taping of the Price Is Right for my high school graduation.
  12. I HATE bananas but love banana bread.
  13. ENFP though I’m really like an extroverted introvert.
  14. The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie.
  15. I would pretend to be a spy (remember, true crime) and my spy name was Mary J. Blige (same initials!).
  16. R.L. Stine was my childhood hero. (I may have written some fan fiction in 1995.)
  17. My first airplane ride was to Key West in 6th grade. I cried before we got on the plane.
  18. My first CD was No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom.
  19. My first real concert was George Jones.
  20. I won a class spelling bee on the word “basin.” I then lost the grade bee on “cabbage.”
  21. In high school, I got a B in typing because I “talked too much.”
  22. My mother had a conference with my teacher in 5th grade because I “talked too much.”
  23. I have a weird aversion to the color purple unless it’s nail polish.
  24. I’m named after my great great grandmother (Molly) and my grandmother (Helen Joy).
  25. The first celebrity to appear in one of my dreams was Sean “Puffy” Combs. He gave me a car.
  26. I’m currently trying to quit my sugar addiction – just trying to eat less than usual.
  27. When people “nick” themselves in razor commercials it turns my stomach.
  28. I was the star of a play one time. Literally. I played a star named Twinkle.
  29. I was terrified of the Easter Bunny as a kid.
  30. I won a pull up contest in 8th grade. I did 20 legit, no kipping pull ups in a row.
  31. My current favorite snack is homemade popcorn with butter, rosemary, and sea salt (with a glass of red wine).
  32. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

In a less vain post, I wrote about my 30th year here for my 31st birthday.
