The Bad Luck Detective's Challenge
By cdrdash on June 25, 2012
Bad Luck Detective laid out the following challenge:
“I came across a blogging tip saying you should add interesting facts about yourself to your blog’s “about me” page. It suggested ten things most people don’t know about you. This is my challenge…Add a list to your blog and then leave it in my comments or write your own BlogHer post and let me know so I can discover your secrets. Detectives are snoopy people.”
So here is my list!
- I’m an asexual lesbian and make a brief appearance in the movie (A)sexual.
- I am out hiking almost every weekend.
- I have no children but my sister and two brothers have provided me with 5 nieces and 2 nephews
- I love to read and was a bookworm as a kid.
- I’m an avid women’s basketball and volleyball fan, especially of the Stanford Cardinal.
- I was a faculty brat as a kid otherwise known as the daughter of a university professor.
- I spent 2 separate years of my childhood (1965-66 and 1972-73) living in London, England
