Since I’m still having a blast in sunny San Diego, I thought I’d give you a break from finance today and share some funny facts about myself.

-If I could have only one food for the rest of my life, it would be home grown, garden tomatoes. I would never get tired of them.

-I’ve wanted to be an optometrist since 5th grade. Before that, I wanted to be an artist, but I realized that I have absolutely zero artistic talent.

-I’ve always had eclectic taste in music. In third grade, I got a turn table record player and two albums: Kiss Dynasty and Snoopy and the Red Baron

-My first airplane ride was when I was 17 years old after I won a trip to Washington DC for an essay I wrote about rural electric co-ops.

-I’ve never plucked my eyebrows.

-I can remember when people used to rake their carpets.

-I’m from Kentucky, but am scared to death of horses.

-I once owned a pair of leather pants.

-I’ve been to Mardi Gras. Once was enough.

-I believe yellow cars are bad luck.

-I’ve been certified to scuba dive, but have never done an ocean dive. Moving to Colorado sort of killed that one.

-I’m not really a fan of most country music, but I used to go line dancing almost weekly when I lived in Memphis. Thank God there is no video of those days!

    I thought I was the only one who thought yellow cars were bad luck. My dad told me that once and I’ve never been able to shake the belief.

    As far as garden tomatoes, I love them, too, but by the end of the season when I’m left with a bushel full of ripe tomatoes my thoughts aren’t quite as loving.
