I'm going to skip my Things I Love Thursday post this week. Haven't found enough fun things on the interwebs and I'm liking this whole question answering thing. I beg your forgiveness, loyal readers.
Today's questions come from Sara Bell.
1. Why are you gluten-free? Do you have Celiac Disease?
I am indeed the proud owner of a faulty immune system and a faulty upper intestine. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in June of 2010, just weeks shy of our wedding. Luckily our wedding was already pretty gluten-free (we had a baked potato bar!), but it was still an adjustment. Rob has been an absolute blessing throughout the whole obnoxious process.
2. What band did you usually listen to when you locked yourself in your room in middle school? (Obviously you thought your life was insanely hard and did this because so did I, and everyone I know)
What a great question! In 5th and 6th grade I was positively obsessed with the Beatles. Like in a really creepy, obnoxious, attention-getting way. I wanted everyone to know how much I liked the Beatles. I even sort of looked like John Lennon at one point (don't ask). In 7th and 8th grade I grew more into an obnoxious poseur and started listening to a lot of the hits of the day, such as Nelly, Eminem, Limp Bizkit, and, of course, N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys. I am not particularly proud of this period in my musical history, as you can probably imagine.
3. What is your dream job?
Another great question. I used to think I'd like to be a veterinarian, but now I think I would love to be a comedy writer on a television show. Preferably with Tina Fey please. I doubt I'm funny or witty enough so for now it's just a dream, but a fun one regardless. I think I would also enjoy just writing in general, as long as I could maintain some level of creativity.
