Tell me three things about yourself you think I don't know. If you have the stamina, tell me 10 things about yourself you think I don't know!

You know so many of my juicy secrets! This is a challenge.

1. Past Me once spent a year working in an indie film theater and watched every movie they showed, but Present Me hasn't seen a movie in the theater without my kids this calendar year.

2. Some of the best medical care I have ever received was at a free clinic for sex workers in San Francisco. My "physical" included optional counseling and massage treatments!

3. When I was a kid I collected dead June bugs in a little tin. I had about a dozen green ones and one gold one. I found out many years later that my mom used to sneak into my room at night and weed out the rotting ones and replace them with fresh dead bugs. I played with them constantly.

4. I applied to graduate school for fiction writing, and got shunted into a non-fiction class because the seminar I wanted was full. That class changed the whole course of my life.

5. Speaking of grad school, my biggest regret is not dropping out of my MFA program halfway through to spontaneously move to Switzerland with a guy I met on vacation in Prague.

6. I'm allergic to nickel, which limits my cheap jewelry fun.

7. I have been keeping a regular diary since age 7, and still have every entry.

8. I'm terrified of snakes because when I was six I held our classroom pet snake and dropped it & it was startled and hurt. Similarly, my fear of dogs is rooted in having seen one get hit by a car as a child.

9. Another childhood secret: I had two wizards that protected my sleep at night, one at each end of my bed. I absolutely needed to check on each of them before getting into bed at night and on waking.
