    You know, I thought you were mostly alright but the not liking watermelon thing is giving me pause.

    Pause.

    Well. Alright then. More for me and you’re still A-OK in my book!

    I love it. Clearly you are a VERY COOL person. And, I think “prone to insomnia” and “blogging obsessed” MUST go hand-in-hand, don’t you?

    A person ‘reduced’ to a list of attributes. Don’t know if I’d be brave or honest enough to do that myself.
    Best wishes

    I’ve never voted, either. What’s up with that?

    Book addict, huh? Since we have so much time on our hands, we should start a mini-drinking, er, I mean book club. It would give me an excellent excuse to drive over there once a month for some drinking, damn, I mean non-children time.

    I’m with you on the watermelon…and about 15 other of your items I counted. I really wish I could like watermelons…I love the smell of them…but the texture just grosses me out.

    “high-school dropout” and “started college”…and an amazing writer! You go girl!

    I dropped out of college, had kids, divorced, went back, got married again, became a very passionate writing teacher *Woo Hoo* and had another child. *Whew* But I looooooove watermelon. With salt.

    And I love your blog.

    “Ambitious in ways that don’t matter” was the standout one for me. I can completely relate. If you ever figure out a way to be ambitious in the ways that do, will you let me know how you’ve done it?
