Talking about myself: a 30 day challenge.

Have been stalking vegan blogs over the last few days, and started reading through Seitanic Vegan Heathen‘s archives, since she’s been posting something called “30 Days of Rikki Cupcake“. Wasn’t sure what was going on until I reached her original post, which includes the list at the bottom of the post (originally taken from getthewordsout). I’m a little late to the party, but since y’all know I LOOOVE to talk, I figured having something structured to talk about would be nice. So here goes:

day 1- recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself image

Took this picture last night while trying REALLY HARD to fall asleep. Short Stack was in the bed with me and he thrashes and hogs the covers.

OK, 15 interesting facts about me:

1. I bake a lot. A LOT.

2. I hardly EVER eat what I bake. I’ll taste things, but only occasionally.

3. Mia Cupcake is my roller derby name. (I was a derby girl for about 8 minutes, but have been involved in roller derby for almost 5 years in other ways.) I got it because I had a super bad breakup and baked non-stop to try and make the hurt go away. Never ate a single crumb of those cupcakes. Mea Culpa morphed into Mea Cupcake. Mia just looked nicer. 🙂

4. I can cross my pinky toe over the toe next to it (without using my hands), and pinch people and pick stuff up with my big toes. It’s hereditary….my dad and Short Stack can do it too.

5. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington.

6. Despite the fact that I talk like a hardass, I am soft-hearted in many ways. I take dollar bills when I go Downtown Seattle and give them to all the homeless people and buskers I pass. (the people at the bank always give me shit when I change out $20s for $1s, like I’m going to the strip club. Dorks.)

7. I once got punched in the face by a midget.

8. I am unnaturally obsessed with midgets (I find them wholly fascinating), and this may have been a contributing factor to the circumstances surrounding #7.

9. I have only been to 3 countries in my life, including the one I live in. I live so close to Canada though, I’m not sure that counts. I also have not left this state (or gone further south than Seattle) in almost a year.

10. I’m a horrible bitch when I first meet people. I don’t know if it’s a defense mechanism, but 99.22% of the time, I will really strongly dislike people when I first meet them. The .78% of the time when I don’t hate them, they end up being my BFF.

11. I’m not as big of a bitch as I say I am.

12. I don’t play well with others when they’re being insufferable immovable assholes. And I will not hesitate to tell you that you are an insufferable immovable asshole.

13. I like to use fancy cursewords (that I then have to try and not say in front of my children) like “fuckmuppet”, “assmonkey”, “doucheweasel”, “shit-tarded” and “douchelord”.

14. From age 11 to age 16, I would have given my left butt cheek to be from Louisiana. I think this stemmed from a trip to LA where I spent 5 glorious hours of my life in the House of Blues and then read every book I could (no internet when I was little…I’m OLD) on Cajun cooking and then every book I could find on New Orleans and then I started reading  Southern Weddings magazine, and was SO MAD at my father for not having a plantation or a family tree I could trace back to something exciting, other than good strong German-Irish farming stock. Who never farmed a day in their lives once they hit American soil in the late 1800s.

15. I love cookbooks. Like really really really love cookbooks. Chef says that’s one of the reasons he knew I was his soulmate…when he walked into my house for the first time, my counters were stacked with them and I had a whole cabinet stuffed with them 🙂 I also read them like novels. I’m bananas, I know.
