- I weighed just over four pounds at birth. - TRUE. And I was full-term, as well, but my mom had severe bronchitis for much of the winter she was pregnant with me, and they think that's what kept me so small. I was incubated for two weeks until I got over five pounds, and then my parents took me home.
- I never use my real name at Starbucks. - TRUE. I get tired of spelling my name for them! If I'm asked for a name there, I use my middle one there, which is much more common. (I know a few other women with unusual first names who also have a "Starbucks alias.")
- I bring a book with me everywhere I go. - TRUE, as previously mentioned here.
- I was first-chair violinist in my high-school orchestra. - FALSE. My violin career ended in the fourth grade, and my high school didn't even have an orchestra (although I did sing in the choir.)
- I spent four years in the Ivy League (at Cornell). - TRUE, but only because of the phrasing. This was while my ex-husband was in graduate school there; I worked for the university for most of that time, but never took a class. (I'm a graduate of the University of South Florida - go Bulls!) And by the same token, my son went to Cornell when he was three years old(!).
- My (present) husband and I got engaged on Super Bowl Sunday. - TRUE. Tall Paul and I are not football fans, and on the first Sunday in February, 2006, we went for a drive and ended up in Santa Barbara. We spent the afternoon there, and he wanted to get some pictures of the sunset at the pier. That's where he proposed - but there aren't any pictures of that.
- I have been in every state on the East Coast - I actually like road trips. - FALSE. I really do like road trips...I've been in every East Coast state EXCEPT Maine, so that's what makes it false.
- I have never once smoked a cigarette. - TRUE. Never even sampled demon tobacco in junior high. I was an unbelievably straight arrow, even for a Catholic-school girl.
- I was a member of the American Contract Bridge League. - TRUE, but only because I worked there for six years. Not a huge fan of the game.
- I've broken each of my arms once. - FALSE. The two broken arms belong to my stepdaughter - both this year, actually.
