    3. I will always love the Green Bay Packers.

    4. My new favorite singer is Mozella (which, ironically, is the album you gave me when you worked at the RU)
    5. I procrastinate to the point of stress and illness. I hate doing actual work…and have become a pro at procrastination.

    Love ya!

  5. Those were really interesting! I totally agree about the Mac thing 🙂

    1. I became a "war bride" at the age of 19.
    2. I have an extra rib AND an extra vertabre…which is very rare.
    3. I'm writing a book about being a teen Army wife.
    4. I desperately love Hitchcock movies, and I love watching them alone in the dark.
    5. My husband and I met when we were 14 and were best friends for 5 years before we started dating.
