Here are seven things about me:

1. Despite the fact that I love the smell of engine grease in the morning, and I feel there is nothing better than rolling around in the dirt under a car, I have one secret desire: I have always wanted to dress up like Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady and learn how to ball room dance.

2. I cannot stand the sound of something wobbling.  For example, a table with one leg that is too short and moves every time you lean on it, or a tea kettle that you place on the stove and it moves slightly because the stove is cock-eyed.  Anything that wobbles is liable to drive me insane.

3. Whenever I go to a new place that has sand (the desert, or a different beach) I take my shoes off and take a photo of my feet in the sand.  It’s an odd trademark I have for saying, “Look! I was there!”

4. Every day, I grapple with the question: “Am I really screwed up, or do I just think I’m really screwed up, and I’m actually fine, and do I need to see a therapist, or is that just a waste of money?”

5. I have good luck charms that stay in my car and I feel uncomfortable without them.  These include a piece of fringe from my old job laying out draperies, and a lucky gasket from my old exhaust pipe that I replaced.

6. I have always struggled with some form of depression.

7. I haven’t written a substantial amount in a very long time, and this makes me sad.
