1.  Ever since I was a little girl, I've always had a pet.  I currently have 3 birds, a cat and dog.

2.  When I was 12 yrs. old, I was diagnosed with paraplegia 'cause of a failed scoliosis operation.  The doctor said that I'd never walk again, but that didn't stop me from relearning.  And now I'm training for a half-marathon.

3.  I used to lip sync in the high school choir and whenever I tried to really sing, the director would say that someone was out of key.  :/

4.  This is my new favorite commercial:

How can you not love it?!

5.  My favorite number is 8 'cause it's an even # and very curvaceous.

6.  I don't eat lamb 'cause I saw them hanging in the gyro store.

7.  I love spending time with my family and always miss them - even though I saw them two days ago.
