Ruined flooring RX

Diet root beer + light Dulce de leche ice cream = the best ever root beer float. You're welcome. I would fill you in on the construction fiascoes, but don't want to get sucked back into the wallowing. Someday soon, when we're on to the next crisis.

So, belatedly, eight things you don't know about me (a month too late...)

1) I've fallen on my head and ended up with a concussion twice

2) I'm scared of heights.

3) Cooked seafood tastes like I have a mouth full of dirty small change to me, but I love sushi.

4) My eyes are two different colors.

5) I'd rather have a plate of fries than a bowl of ice cream.

6) I wrote a letter to the then-President of the United States when I was in elementary school, and still have his reply around. Somewhere. (Hey, he was a Republican... it's not like I can hang it in the living room and still have any cred with my liberal friends).

7) When I was little, I used to sleep with my feet on my pillow and my head at the foot of the bed. So when the burglars broke in and attacked me with a baseball bat, they wouldn't be hitting me in the head and I could hobble away. Yes, that was the sort of thing I worried about. And no, I have no idea why.

8) Clowns are creepy, but those white faced clowns from Italian Commedia dell'Arte still give me nightmares. (I hate going into a bistro and seeing that psychotic Evil-Dancing-Clown-With-The-Plate-of-Pasta poster that seems to be in every third restaurant here in L.A. )
