I always feel awkward about writing my bio, so here are 15 random facts about me instead:
1.) I have a husband, three daughters, and a dog (who is a girl). Husband is greatly outnumbered!
2.) I adopted my dog Shadow in 2002 from the Edmonton Humane Society after she was picked up by the pound as a stray.She looked like a mini-woolly mammoth until her first haircut.
3.) If I could go anywhere in the world right now it would be to Santorini, Greece.
4.) If I could have any job in the world (and the talent to go with it) I would star as Christine Daae in the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. I know all the words already!
5.) I never mastered the “adult” way to tie shoelaces. I still do the “bunny ears.”
6.) I have completed 3 full marathons, 15 half marathons, 1 olympic length triathlon, 2 sprint triathlons, 1 31km x-country ski race and a 130km bike tour.
7.) BUT I really don’t enjoy exercise. I would rather watch TV and eat popcorn.
8.) I love the sound the shutter on my camera makes when I take a picture. *Click*
9.) I have been an “octo-lacto” vegetarian since I was 12 years old. I still eat milk and egg products. Have you ever tried soy cheese? Yuck!
10.) I’m not really into hugging.
11.) My favorite bands are U2, Incubus and Coldplay and I have seen them all multiple times.
12.) I am part of a Polynesian dance troupe in Edmonton - Tropical Breeze Polynesian Dance Society. I love hula!
13.) I have had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee due to soccer injuries and now have a sweet scar.
14.) My favorite fruit is the Mangosteen. So yummy! (try them at T & T Supermarket in Edmonton)
15.) I used to be a Junior Forest Warden and can light a fire without matches.
