Sharing is caring

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Last night was gorgeous in Cleveland, the sun shined all day, I attended the Greater Cleveland Partnership Annual Meeting and crashed JoeG's dinner at The Greenhouse Tavern... but that's not the point of this post.

The point is that I've recently been reflecting on exactly how long I've been blogging (since January 1st, 2008), how many posts I've written (this is #924) and how my audience (and my writing) has evolved over the years.


More specifically how the things I wrote in 2008, I'm guessing 95% of you haven't read, so I'm going to share some random ass things about myself because I can - it's my blog after all. It's like a online getting to know you exercise...


Things you may or may not have known about me:


1. I have three 6 inch pins in my left hip holding it in place from a surgery I had in the 6th grade. This surgery also gave me a 7 inch scar down the length of my hip, sexy.


2. Less than five short years ago I was a pack a day smoker. Parliament Ultra Lights, mmm, I still get the cravings, but I'm so happy I quit. Full disclosure: I still may bum a smoke here or there when I have some cocktails in me.


3. I love
Phish. I first came in contact with the band in high school, got heavier into them in college but was terrified of seeing a show or really getting into "the scene" as I always thought I was too preppy to like Phish. I just like the music, man. That being said, I'll be seeing Phish for the second time this summer and I may wear Tory Burch just to weird out the phans.

4. I can eat an entire box of cereal in one sitting. No description needed for this one, I just really like cereal.


5. I played Mrs. Banks in a version of Mary Poppins in elementary school. I also was in Bye Bye Birdie, Godspell, and Once Upon a Mattress in high school - your general choir/drama kid, I was awesome. I also may or may not have sung the Star Spangled Banner before my high school's boys basketball games.


That's it for now - anyone else feel like sharing?


Happy Thursday, kids!

  1. hmmmm I like some of my old posts better than others. I still laugh when I look at how I was tagging them and I still don't realy have any organization with that.

  3. My blog has evolved from "Drinking With & Dating of Strange Men" to "Here, Have Another Cat Photo" across (almost) 10 years of blogging. Seesh. I'm so boring. lol

    The old stories are still the most read -- and most searchable -- on my blog. And it still cracks me up that I essentially have a Timeline of Assholes. :)

  4. I can't drink NESQUIK strawberry or really any pink milk. Why? When I was like 10 I drank a ton and then started a long drive and threw it up but caught it with my hands/mouth
    I didn't know what to do so just sat there holding throw up in my mouth with my hands until finally I threw up more and it went everywhere.

    you're welcome.

  5. I never had a bowl of cereal until about 3 years ago. Now I'm obsessed. Carbalicious.

  6. Fun! As a long time reader of your blog I didnt know some of these things about you. I never would have guessed you sang the star spangled banner before basketball games. Good for you for giving up smoking. And cereal for dinner after a hectic workday trumps basically everything else.

  9. From 2000 through 2004, the senator and his wife never gave more than $3,500 a year in charitable donations -- about 1 percent of their annual earnings.
    there only 2 charities were Rev Wright and the United N E G R O S fund.
