So my sister (RookieMom Whitney) tagged me with this Meme.
First, the Rules:
1) Post these rules before you give your facts
2) List 8 random facts about yourself
3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) people and list their names, linking to them
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged [GeekyGirl's note: Rules 3 and 4 aren't likely. My online friends don't keep blogs. We're more message board people.]
And now… my facts:
1) Despite the fact that my (half) sister is nearly a decade older than me and has never lived with my parents, younger brother, and me, I still forever feel like the middle child in our family with all the neuroses that entails.
2) In eleventh grade, my high school dance company traveled to NYC to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with 500 other dancers from around the country. Highs included seeing *NSync on a float right in front of us, being on The Today Show, and seeing The Lion King on Broadway. Lows included fourteen hour rehearsals in the basement of the hotel with southern dance captains who closely resembled S.S. officers, starving for a week, and walking the entire parade route in relentless November rain and spandex.
3) Though I come from a loooong line of educators (both parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts, etc.) I've never for a minute seriously considered a teaching career.
4) I've seen the movie Clueless over a hundred times and probably still have it memorized (though I haven't tested that in a while.)
5) It's important to me to marry a man who's Jewish.
6) In eighth grade my friends and I made a documentary about me called Emily's Hollywood Connections. Essentially, I did six degrees of...any two movies they could think of (before the practice was marketed as Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.) I still have a copy of the script.
7) When I was 18, I appeared in a "man on the street" fashion feature for Time Out NY. (Backstory: my sister's friend Danielle was the photog and she took pics of my sis and me sporting various trends on the sidewalk outside of her apartment.)
8) In high school, as a dancer at 5'2'', 110 lbs. I felt "fat." Sometimes that insecurity still creeps up and results in my not eating for two or three days.
