1. I totally love my car, and I totally love driving it through the mountains. Not a sports car, she is nevertheless a sporty, peppy car. She has a good engine, kicked up a notch or two with turbo. Complete with all-wheel drive and the optional "sports package," my car just loves rounding curves and climbing hills and I just love being along for the ride.
2. I have such a passion for peanut butter that I dare not keep any in the house. The jar of peanut butter calls my name constantly until it has been consumed.
3. I love cooking shows and cooking magazines. I read recipes like many people read novels. My favorite cooking magazine is Cook's Illustrated which gives elaborate detail about how a dish is made.
4. I have always been a reader. I have at least three books in process at any given time, usually one fiction, one non-fiction and one biography. I do not read at night, however. If I do, I tend to get too caught up in the book and stay up far too late.
5. I have never cared a whit for shoes. I hate shopping for them and I hate wearing them. I'm barefoot in the house most of the time and my outdoor shoes are sneakers or boots. On the occasion that I HAVE to wear attractive shoes, I take them off the minute I get home.
6. My circadian chronotype is the "evening" type. I am not a morning person at all. Forced to change into a fake morning person during my work years, I have now reverted to my true self. I must be given some time to come to life in the morning. It's simple, really. Just leave me alone while I cradle my coffee mug and sit quietly in my chair. I feel the need to speak on behalf of all of us who are evening types. We are not lazy! We are not slugs! We don't need (or get) any more sleep than you morning types. Morning people tend to think that they have it right and some of them are downright arrogant about it. [You know that old, "early to bed, early to rise" thing.] Believe me, I know about morning people. I live with one who is up at 5:00 am and loves nothing more than the brisk morning air.
