OK, I got tagged as it seems by My Summer Family buddy, Toasty Joe, about posting eight random facts about myself. Well, I was having a hard time coming up with random things about me, since I am pretty open about everything here. And apparently, I need to flag eight "victims" myself.
Well, I thought long and hard and thought of a few. Let me throw some shit to the walls here, see if it sticks.
1.) In pics, most of you have seen that the Coop is blonde. However, I have not seen my real hair color in over 17 years.
2.) Most readers know The Coop is a lifelong Jersey resident. However, she has lived in two towns of the most influential music icons from the Garden State. See if you can guess who. (HINT: Not Jon Bon Blow-me)
3.) Quite possibly, the Coop's favorite food is chocolate -- chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, candy bars, etc. However, Coop hates chocolate ice cream. Well, not hate. I just prefer vanilla. And I hate Cold Stone, Marble Slab and those new found ice cream "bakeries" and "confectionaries." Gimme a Mr Softee soft vanilla cone any day, any week, any time.
4.) The Coop had LASIK surgery in 2002, after being pretty hazy in vision since middle school. She now sees better than 20 / 20.
5.) The Coop has seven tattoos, in case you have not read that here and here. My dream tattoo, however, is to get a likeness of Bono (of U2, folks, not Sonny) somewhere on my arms. It is also a well-documented fact that if I were to ever meet Paul David Hewson (aka Bono) in person, I would promptly get on my knees and kiss his feet. (PS Metsgrrl knows this fact already)
6.) The Coop's favorite book: The Great Gatsby. Coincidentally, the author F. Scott Fitzgerald is also from Jersey.
7.) The Coop isn't afraid to go to movies alone. In fact, why anyone needs a companion to a film is beyond me. You can't exactly talk in the theaters or socialize. But I almost prefer to go by myself and don't care if people think I'm a crazy lady for laughing at Superbad by myself.
8.) The Coop played the flute in her high school band (and grade school band). I also used to take singing lessons but now am completely tone deaf (just ask Zoe about karaoke).
Bonus Fact: I have never attended Spring Training before. I have plans and tickets to go this year with Zoe as well. SNK will be there too. Which leads me to...
My next victims...Tag, you're it!
