Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Facts About Me

*Top 10 Tuesday is weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish*

Time for my favorite topic, me!

Seriously, I’m so vain I KNOW this song is about me.

Moving on….

1.) Thanks Alyssa Milano– Yep, I am named after her.  My mom was watching “Who’s the Boss?” one day and thought Alyssa was a name that was different, but not off the wall.  (Bonus fact: Alyssa Milano and I both have December birthdays).

2.) Birthday Cake for Days– Speaking of December birthdays, my family has a few during the first part of the month.  How many?

12/2- My grandpa

12/4- Me and my great-grandpa

12/8- My sister

12/12- Two of my cousins.  They are siblings who were born 2 years, 1 hour and 45 minutes apart.

3.) Origami Yoda– I was OBSESSED with origami as a tween, and can still bust out an origami cup or ball.  But I can’t make origami Yoda….

4.) #hamiltrash–  Yes, I’m one of those Hamilton obsessed people.  I’m going to finish the Chernow biography if it kills me (and it might).

5.)  Bad Melon– I hate melons.  Watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe.  They are all gross.

6.) Dr. Pepper is Not a Good Physician– I hurt my shoulder in college and ended up losing some of the feeling in my right pinky all from picking up a 12 pack of Diet Dr. Pepper.

7.) Allergic to My Job– No, really.  I have allergies to dust, mold, and mildew.  Not great for a librarian.  It’s the main reason why I didn’t go into rare book librarianship (and the whole not being able to read French or German thing).

8.) Straighten Up– I’ve had braces twice…and need them again…..

9.) Say What?– I lost the hearing in my left ear for three days after a .38 Special/Lynyrd Skynyrd concert.  Boyfriend at the time just had to be near the speakers.

10.) Vote for Pedro– I’ve never seen Napoleon Dynamite.
