1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag whoever to do it.

1. I compulsively buy toothbrushes. Don't ask me why. I own dozens.

2. If I'm not constantly dieting and exercising, I can gain weight really frighteningly fast. This is why I have to walk or ride my bike every day.

3. I got a dvt last year after my long drive up to Cape Cod. Been on blood thinners for a year. I've gone for blood work once a week for 11 months.

4. I was the only one of my friends who was desperate to leave Long Island, and I'm the only one who stayed.

5. In high school, I was really close friends with my English teacher. I spent every free period with him, we had lunch together, hung out after school, I babysat for his children, etc. In retrospect, I guess that was a bit weird.

6. My husband is my best friend. And he's really Superman, not the Green Arrow.

7. For a year and a half, I've watched nothing on regular tv, except for Buffy.

I just received an email from my friend Steve from college. He and his wife have just moved from Point Reyes National Park to Denali in Alaska. Ugh. I don't know how they do it. They're both full-time park rangers, or at least they were. I'm not sure if Steve continued working, since someone has to take care of their two year old and their baby-to-be. Steve always wanted to be the stay at home parent. The two of us used to dream of the day we could be with our children full time when we were in school. Kind of a strange thing to aspire to, I guess, especially for a guy, but Steve was not your average fellow. He was the most appealing creature. If he walked into a room or a party, people would just flock to him. I am not exaggerating. Gay men and young women could not stay away. Maybe he emitted pheromones or something. I know I didn't even notice my husband when I first met him, because I couldn't see anything past Steve. I was a silly girl. My parents met them both, and I said, "Isn't Steve incredible?" And they said, "Are you nuts? We like the other one so much more. Steve's nice, but not for you." They were right, of course. Steve and I had nearly nothing in common, and my husband and I share all the same interests and values. But Steve was rather dreamy. I'm so glad things turned out the way they did, though. Otherwise, I'd probably be stuck freezing my butt off in Alaska, fending off wild bears and rampaging moose. Oy gevalt!
