How the Leopard Got Its Spots

Suited up in leopard spots and a high/low skirt, I’m ready to do another round of random thoughts. Here goes nothing:

If every person is born with a social security number and every social security number is unique, why do we also need bank account numbers, drivers license numbers and account numbers that are all different?

It’s been almost three months since the last time I cut my hair. So long, bob?

Corina Corina is one of my all-time favorite movies.

I haven’t been on a plane in almost a year. Planes scare the bejesus out of me.

I can’t stand Oprah. (There, I said it.)

Peanut butter, chocolate and mint is one of the best flavor combos you’ve never had.

The first pet I ever had was a cat named Snuffy.

I once rode on a racehorse who took off full-speed while I was on it. That was the day I was pretty sure I was going to die.

I wrote a children’s book about Milly. No one wanted to publish it.

This whole spinning phenom that exists is beyond me. That seat is hella uncomfortable.

There’s a Lumineers song that says, “The opposite of love is indifference.” And I believe that.

Poetry is a dying art form, but I still secretly long to be one. My favorite to read are William Carlos Williams, Gwendolyn Brooks and Edgar Allan Poe.

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Thanksgiving is my least.

I still want to be Lisa Vanderpump when I grow up.

I know I dance like a white girl from the Midwest. And I own it.

Now that I’m 35 I have a new game. It’s called adventures in wrinkle cream.

I’ve never seen a single episode of anything the Kardashians have ever been on. And I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.

I once chased Jimmy Fallon down the street after a Beastie Boys concert. I did not catch him.

A leopard may not be able to change his spots, but if you want to change something bad enough, you will.
