I'm just a simple girl living in a complex world (as they say). I started this blog just to spice up my sometimes mundane life. Below are some interesting facts that my readers out there may or may not know about me. Please feel free to comment on any of the facts.
1. Each time I brush my teeth, I brush it twice. Once with an electronic toothbrush and another time with a regular toothbrush. I just like to clean my teeth thoroughly, and I also influenced my kids to do the same thing except they don't have the fancy electronic toothbrush yet. :)
2. My favorite all time American sitcom is Three's Company. There are 8 seasons with over 100 episodes. I watched every episode at least 10 times, so you do the math. My first memory of watching the show was when I was 10 or 11. My cousins and I would crack up every time Chrissy does her snorting laugh or Jack stumbling on a iron or banging on a door. The other main character is Janet, but her character has been overshadowed by Chrissy's blonde moments. Also, who would forget the sex deprived Mrs. Roper and the ladies man, Mr. Furley.
3. I have a strong aversion to cats. Many of my friends and family know about this. It's very ironic since I was born in the year of the tiger and my astrological sign is Leo. I hate them so much, that I refuse to say the word, but rather quote it backwards T-A-C. I think the reason I don't like them is because they are not my definition of cute. They are very scary looking. I have two vivid memories of them. One memory was when I was a 10 and we were living in apartment building where you have to dispose your garbage in big container, one time, in the middle of the night, I flew the garbage bag in the container and guess what jump out? I was so scared! The other time was when I was in grade 7 and attended a classmate's party. One of my classmates put a cat on my lap, not knowing that I was afraid of them. You can imagine how petrified I was!!!!!
4. I live and breathe the Google website. It is by far my favorite search engine and I refuse to use others. I literally use it everyday. I google the most ridiculous thing (as per my son) such as "how do you know if you are stung by a bee" to "how to make the best chicken pot pie." By the way, for all you out there who's interested in searching for a good recipe, I have a tip for you. Put the word "best" in front of the items you want to make and you will get way more recipes. Try it. Once again, Google is my BFF. :)
5. When I was working at a freight-forwarding company many years ago, I wanted to impress my supervisor by telling her that I was once "stoned" at a party. HaHaHa!!! At that time, I thought stoned meant seriously drunk. No wonder her jaw dropped and she kept on asking me if it was true. I told her repeatedly yes. Thank god, she didn't take it that serious and never judge me on it. Every since that incident, I make sure that I'm using the right vocab. :)
