Okay...Ten Random Things...

1. I have been radioactive. I wouldn’t recommend it. As part of my cancer treatment I had to drink radioactive iodine and stay in a paper lined hospital room until the Geiger counter said I was safe to go home.

2. In college I went on a date with Adam Sandler. The next day his roommate told me that Adam would not be asking me out again because, "I didn’t put out.” Thank God right?

3. I can think of about one hundred cities that I would prefer to live in. I am trying to make the most of it here in LA.

4. I am deathly afraid of driving. (Part of why I would like to live somewhere other than Los Angeles). I have been in several accidents. In the last one, I was literally hit by a shit truck. The septic tanker hit the passenger side of my car and totaled it. I was fine, but now have scars on my wrist that look like they came from a botched suicide attempt.

5. When I was getting ready to go to high school, I begged my parents to send me to an all girls’ Catholic school MILES away from my house. It was not that I was religious. There was a local bully in my neighborhood. She told someone to tell me that if I attended the excellent public school near my house (where she went)- she would kill me. Murder me. I had never met this girl, but she “didn’t like the looks of me.” I was too terrified to argue. I think my parents were happy that I requested a catholic school.

6. When I was fifteen I met Andy Warhol on the streets of New York. He was hard to miss. He gave me a copy of “Interview” Magazine. He was on his way to his publisher. When I got home I noticed that he had written notes throughout it. I guess they were edits that he wanted. I really wish I had kept that magazine. It would have paid for this adoption and probably six more.

7. I had scoliosis as a girl, and was terrified that I would have to wear a brace like Judy Blume’s Deenie.

8. When my mom and I get together we like to make an enormous bowl of popcorn and watch the movie Tootsie.

9. I had a small part on Guiding Light once. I played a birth mother who gives her baby up right after delivering. It was a flashback and the producers decided my voice didn’t sound enough like the person’s I was flashing back, so they dubbed it. It ended up looking like a really bad Kung-Fu movie.

10. I love ginger; ginger ale, ginger scones, ginger candy, ginger tea. Ginger is one of life’s gifts.

Because I would like to know more about them.


  1. Oh my gosh, your 10 things are WAY cooler and more interesting than anything I am ever going to manage to think up!

    Have you tried the Trader Joes' ginger candies. Amazing stuff.

    Zufan's mom. :)

  2. OK, I got it done!

    Doesn't look like there is a very high compliance rate, huh? :)

    I LOVE that blog from the lady adopting from Ubekestan (sp). So funny. Thanks for helping me find that!

  3. This was so much fun to read!
    Mine will be so boring.
    EW on Adam Sandler! What a creepo.
    And seriously...that really sucks about the magazine. Ouch!

  4. I love Tootsie! Me and my Mom watched it over and over when I was a kid...that and Victor Victoria! I don't know which is worse, Adam Sandler or Tim Curry...just kidding!!! :)

    Sucks about Andy Warhol though you could have gotten a ton of money for it...My Mom has some letters from Elvis stuffed in her attic I have been trying to get put on Ebay without any luck!

  5. Adam Sandler expected a girl to put out on a first date with him?! In college? Before he was famous? Before he got semi-cute? Before he was known for his red hooded sweater?

    I stink at tags but I'll get to answering yours in a jif.

  6. OMG, you went on a date with Adam Sandler - lol! I am cracking up at that, the funniest thing that guy ever did was write his own version of zodiac astrology - I think I laughed for 2 days straight after reading that (My sense of humor is exceptional, really):
