25 Things You Don't Know About Me

I'm stealing L's post and jumping on the 25 Things You Don't Know About Me bandwagon.

I'm happiest when...I have nothing to do, a good book to read, and the sound of rain outside.

.... Especially If... I'm curled up in bed under the covers with my cats sleeping next to me.

I've always wanted to... Go to Spruce Meadows and ride into the International Ring under the clock tower.

My family and I... are very close.  My mom is my best friend

I was a terrible...friend to my non horse friends.  I don't keep in contact with anyone from high school, or college, that aren't horse people.  I'm that classic introvert crazy horse girl.

My first job Border's Books and Music.  They usually didn't hire high school kids because of curfew issues and the fact that no one under 18 could sell Playboy or Hustler but my mom worked there and told convinced the manager to hire me at 17. I worked the register at Christmas, trained to be a barista, worked midnight Harry Potter release parties.

I could probably eat....cheese forever.  If I became lactose intolerant I would die.  Cheddar 4 lyfe!

I stole....a packing tape dispenser from my last job.  I borrowed it to pack up some things to ship out and completely forgot it was in my car.  Oops.

I was born on the same day as....Barbra Streisand

My all time favorite move is.....that's a hard one.  As a kid I watched Lady and the Tramp till I wore out the VHS.  As a teen, I loved Dirty Dancing.  As an adult, I don't know.

I do a pretty mean....guacamole.  We had six avocado trees on our property growing up and I used to make great guacamole.

I'm still mad.... I spent six years at a job that was a mental and emotional hell.

I met my SO at... No SO for me. I'm asexual and still figuring out my romantic identity.  I don't need a SO but I'm open to meeting that person.

I always knew I wanted...a horse.

I'm not afraid to... admit when I'm wrong.  I've learned the hard way that honesty is best and that so many things can be fixed when you admit you fucked up.

I make the best...chicken tortilla soup.  Mmmmmm.......

I have almost no...tolerance for stupidity or rude people.  I tend to shut down and ignore, unless I'm backed into a corner then all hell breaks loose.

I always cry... I'm upset, especially if I haven't eaten and my blood sugar is low.  Hangry is me.

I'm (now) a... lab animal technician but I think most people don't understand my job and don't agree with what I do.

I spent 6 months... playing the piano, 4 months doing ballet and my parent's didn't think I'd stick with horses for more than 6 months.  Going on 23yrs now...

I wish my folks... didn't live so far away.

At five I was deeply in love with...Tramp, from Lady and the Tramp. 

I believe if everyone... lived by the golden rule the world would be a better place.

I can't stand...tomatoes.  They have no place in sandwiches and burgers.  So gross.

Whenever a Harry Potter movie is on I'll always watch.
