  • I'm addicted to Cadbury Creme Eggs
  • I love to bake
  • One of my favourite books is Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. I know it's not extremely accurate, but it's just one of those stories that I can read over and over again.

  •  I tell everyone I am 5 feet tall, but really I am just under. 
  • I have a low tolerance for pain, until I am on the derby track.

  • my first concert was seeing Debbie Gibson's Out of the Blue tour at Radio City Music Hall in 1988!
  • One of my fave books: Marjorie Morningstar by Herman Wouk. I *never* reread books, but I've read this one about a half-dozen times. I just keep coming back to it

  • My favorite thing to do is sing!
