Today was my first day back at work. I'm so tired. Heading to bed. I took this from my Facebook page.

25 random things about me.
1. I'd rather go to the gynecologist than the dentist. Pap smear over a filling any day, thanks.
2. I get emotional when I recall both the day I went to the hospital and my labor. The day I went to the hospital was spent with Gabe and it was the last time it was just the two of us. The labor because, duh, I had Ollie.
3. I want to go back to school.
4. I was terrified of childbirth: it wasn’t so bad. And everyone was right-SO worth it. I love being a mom.
5. The sight and sound of Gabe laughing hard makes me really happy.
6. I love gossip magazines. I yearn to sit on a beach in Hawaii, beer in one hand, magazine in the other.
7. I'd be willing to nap everyday.
8. I inherited the worry gene from my father. I have to have something to worry about. At all times.
9. I was a vegetarian for a number of years. Now I love steak and burgers.
10. I love really hot weather. I also love the rain. I am not only happy when it rains.
11. I love my family and look forward to spending time with them.
12. Many of my good friends have left SF. Sometimes I feel lonely here.
13. I recently started a blog. It took me two months to come up with a name, which I still don’t love but I was getting sick of trying to figure that piece out.
14. I like clothes but I'm a terrible shopper. Often I will spend an hour finding stuff to try on and then when I get in line I decide I don’t want to wait so I leave. It drives Gabe crazy.
15. I like the idea of dresses but I mostly wear jeans.
16. The ocean always makes me happy.
17. I hate being late. I feel like I’m being incredibly rude. Strangely, I don’t usually mind when other people are late.
18. When we were young my brother Anthony and I tried to make clove cigarettes. We rolled up cloves from the spice cabinet in binder paper and scotch taped them closed. Then we tried to light them on fire.
19. I was born with a cyst on my neck. It would periodically get infected. I had to have it operated on when I was 10. My grandfather did the surgery.
20. My mom had breast cancer at 40. She had radiation and has been fine for the last 21 years.
21. Gabe and I go to Santa Cruz every year for my birthday; it’s my favorite day of the year. We’ve gone 9 years in a row. Since I turned 16.
22. I’m shy until I get to know someone and horrible at small talk, which makes me a terrible party guest.
23. I met my friend Catherine in the 6th grade. The first time she invited me over for dinner, her mom picked us up in their silver Volkswagen van and Catherine asked her mom if we could have Top Ramen for dinner. Her mom said sure. I had recently learned they were German so I thought it was German dish. That began my junior high obsession with Top Ramen.
24. I love being in libraries. I find them peaceful.
25. One time I was in Park City Utah and Kiefer Sutherland was eating breakfast at the table across from us. He was wearing a jean jacket and jeans. He was with a woman, who was perhaps his wife or girlfriend. She too was wearing a jean jacket and jeans. When they left I talked my friend Scott into coming with me to follow them.
