“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.” ~Anthony D. Angelo

Interesting personal fact

I am really double-jointed in my fingers. I participated in a pie-eating contest but carefully ate only one side (because I knew I was going to lose) so I could save the other side for later. Whenever I get a massage, I act like Monica from Friends.
