- I have a strange fear of zombies. At each home that I have ever lived in, I actually think about how I would zombie-proof the place, should there ever be an outbreak of zombies. Yes, I know zombies aren't real - I'm not that crazy. Oddly enough, zombie movies are some of my favourites - hey, I believe in facing your fears - what doesn't kill you (and eat your brains), makes you stronger.
- When I got my dog, it took me two weeks to name him. I strongly believe you should get to know someone before you name him or her, so that the name fits the personality. I never understand how people can choose a name for their child prior to birth. Although I took a lot of grief at the time, it was worth it - I can't imagine any other name for him. His full name is Simon Freep. When he was a pup, he would find the highest point in any room and then fling himself off of it. This reminded me of Fearless Freep, from a Bugs Bunny - Yosemite Sam cartoon. The Freep character (Sam) is a vaudeville performer that dives into a tiny bucket, from a great height at the urging of Bugs.
- I love shoes. I am always on the quest for a beautiful, unique pair of shoes. At last count, I have 93 pairs (not including athletic shoes and winter boots). If I had more closet space, I'd most certainly have more shoes.
- My husband and I bought 4 acres of land a year and a half ago. We hope to build a house on the property next year. Oddly enough, the house that we want to build has a lot of closet (shoe) space.
- By training, I am an Organometallic Chemist. The chemistry research that I did during undergrad and grad school has been published in several scientific journals, like the Journal of the American Chemical Society. To get my M.Sc., I did 2 years of full-time research, attended classes, wrote an original 150 page thesis and defended that thesis in front of an audience. This was one of the most difficult, but rewarding times of my life.
