The About Me Page

There are a few memes circulating the interweb that keep cropping up in my sight. They are a bunch of questions that prompt short but revealing insight into who you are. They are fun to read, especially of my friends ... though I equally read strangers' answers. Many are questions that don't come up in regular, everyday conversation ... like, "What was your dream job as a kid?" and "Do You Like the Smell of Play-Doh?" and an addition from the rerun of How I Met Your Mother that I'm watching, "What color is your pony?"

Since I couldn't come up with anything worthwhile to write today, I thought I'd lean on these random reveals as a post. Lame, yes? Are you going to continue to read anyway? Yes. So, boiled down to only a few facts, this is me:
