25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

So, I’ve decided for entry #2 of my awesome new blog that I will do a 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me list so that everyone can get to know me a little bit better. This fad might be over on Facebook, but every week in the Hot Hollywood section Us Weekly reports 25 interesting things about a celebrity you may – or may not – have heard of. And that leads me to fact number one:

1. I am a devoted subscriber to US Weekly. Every week as soon as it arrives I have to look at all the pictures. Then, I read the “articles” for two minutes every morning and every night while I brush my teeth.

2. I hate, hate, hate when people misuse quotation marks.

3. Every Thursday morning when I sit down to write, I have a cup of Trader Joe’s Chai Latte in my Westlake School mug.

4. Speaking of school, I graduated from high school with Jason Reitman and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I wonder if they mention being in the same class as Kirsten Sawyer on their unknown facts lists?

5. Hubby #1 was my college boyfriend. I was nineteen and I thought he was cute. I still do.

6. Every time I fry bacon I say, “Now fry like bacon you little freshman piggies.”

7. I grew up riding horses and my mom still has a silver bowl that I won in some championship.

8. People always misspell and mispronounce my name. It annoys me. For the record, it’s K-I-R-S-T-E-N, and it’s pronounced Kur-stin.

9. My favorite drink is a Patron Margarita on the rocks with salt.

10. I love to shop sales and few things make me as happy as an amazing deal. Right now, I am awaiting shipment of a $98 jacket that I got for $12 from because it was on sale, I had $30 worth of “reward cards” (which I am so good at collecting that I worry Gap is going to revoke my credit card), and there was free shipping.

11. I had Baby #2 without an epidural. He was nine pounds and three ounces. I did not know he was going to be nine pounds and three ounces when I decided to do a drug-free birth.

12. When you have a nine pound and three ounce baby, all the medical staff in the room get very excited and start yelling, “Big baby! Big baby!” Then they whisk him off to test for diabetes. (Thankfully, he is fine.)

13. I am horrible at making decisions. I really, really hate doing it…but I also hate not getting my way.

14. I wish I had lived in New York City after college. It’s a decision I regret and I dream about buying an apartment there someday.

15. If I ever won an Emmy for Best Actress, I know exactly how my acceptance speech would go. (No, I have never aspired or attempted to act, but I do fantasize about being “discovered” in line at the grocery store.) The first person I would thank would be the casting director…nobody ever thanks the casting director. If not for the casting director, you’d still be waiting tables at Hugo’s!

16. I think if Tori Spelling and I ever met that we’d be great friends. (By the way, she could potentially drink tea from a Westlake School mug while she writes too because she also went there.) Seriously though, we have a lot in common.

17. I like insanely hot showers. When Hubby #1 tries to be romantic and join me, he ends up shrieking like a girl that he is being cooked alive and it completely ruins the mood.

18. I love the rain and earthquakes terrify me…which doesn’t exactly make Los Angeles the best fit for me.

19. I am constantly predicting earthquakes based on “earthquake weather,” but for better or worse, my predictions never come true.

20. I had a celebrity crush on Seth Rogen before he lost weight…now he’s less attractive to me.

21. Candace Bushnell is kind of my hero – or at least my idol.

22. My top three favorite movies are (in no particular order): Father of the Bride (the Steve Martin version), Christmas Vacation and Back to the Future.

23. I moved into my house four months ago and for some reason my office is yet to be unpacked, so I’m sitting in the middle of cardboard boxes and it smells a little like a warehouse. (The only other unpacked box in the whole house belongs to Hubby #1. It’s labeled: Books – Heavy. It’s in our bedroom and I’m close to caving in and unpacking it myself.)

24. I decided that during the three hours that the $WTF per hour baby sitter is here that I will devote one hour to my blog and two hours to my manuscript. I have three minutes left to blog!

25. I have had the same best friend since I was in nursery school. We actually met when we were a few months old, but didn’t really click until we were four. She, conveniently, happens to be a brilliant editor, so I am going to send this to her now and if it sounds at all good, it’s completely thanks to her.
