Amazingly Normal Random Facts:
I've jumped out of an airplane, but have never landed in one. Ever. In my entire life.
(Edited: I finally flew--and landed--in a plane March 2014)
My cat, Mia Kitty, is named after the evil popular girl in my books. Although my kitty isn't evil. Or popular.
I love chocolate. And bacon. Oooh...chocolate bacon! BAM!
Rose is my middle name. My first name is super secret.
I take bribes that involve chocolate. I know you really want to know my first "real" name *hint,hint*
I'm not pale. It's called porcelain and I'm rocking it.
I used to live close to a cemetery. And by close, I mean practically on top of.
I may lack airplane experience, but I've been in a hearse. Occupied. With a corpse. Jealous much?
(Edited: my plane experience may just be catching up!)
If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted, I wish I had some ice cream...
