I thought I’d take a breather from my attorney posts about elder law, estate planning and small business advice of a legal nature to share some facts about me that you (and likely many of my friends and colleagues) may not know. Here are 10 facts about me that may surprise you:
I hate eggplant.
I’ll eat (and even cook) pretty much anything. But eggplant is perhaps the one and only thing on my list of “no freaking way am I going to eat that!” If you’re cooking up eggplant parm for dinner, kindly leave me off the guest list! For other, more palatable ideas, check out my food blog.
I am strictly anti-Diet Coke.
That stuff is the sweat of evil demons that have come to steal your soul (or at least your health, well-being and vitality), with an addictive, flowing nectar made from nasty, noxious chemicals. Diet Coke = Bubble Trouble. Please do your research and kick the can if you haven’t already. As of the date of this post, I’m officially nearly 2 months clean of my dirty habit drinking diet soda. I now have a loving relationship with my soda stream and bubbly water. Here’s to better health!
My favorite food is adventurous gastro-pub type food – I’ll try anything, even if it seems weird!
I make what could possibly be the best risotto ever.
You know that show with the angry red-faced guy, Gordon Ramsey of Hell’s Kitchen? Well I’ve watched him go postal on many a contestant over the shoddy excuses for risotto that they’ve turned out in the studio kitchen. I believe, without a doubt, that I could singlehandedly bring a smile to that dude’s face with my utterly exceptional risotto. Yes, it’s that good. And here is the master himself…
I applied for the television show The Amazing Race 2 years ago, along with my best friend.
Needless to say I didn’t end up traveling the world for a bunch of money and notoriety, but I love my jobs, my family, and my life working and living around beautiful Daytona Beach, FL. Gotta love the Sunshine State.
I used to have my CDL and drove an 18 Wheeler cross country with my husband when I first got married [AFTER I graduated from Law School].
When David & I first got married we moved –jobless– to New Mexico. An opportunity came up to go to Green Bay WI and be trained to drive tractor trailers. So, young & dumb [but not without higher degrees] we headed off. It was an adventure. No regrets but after driving all over the US we happily retired and settled into our careers.
I like all types of music – even Eminem!
I was a rocker in my younger years. I’m blessed with very responsible, mature kids – and I’m not saying that I wasn’t because I was in my own “Heidi” way; however, I rocked out on the regular to some good old classic rock when I was in my teens and twenties. Now, I’m into all kinds of music, from top 20 hits to throwbacks from the old-school days. Not to be that guy (or, gal, should I say) with the clichés, but I have very “eclectic” taste.
I believe drinking White Zin is a cardinal sin (it’s almost worse than Diet Coke)!
No offense to the White Zin drinkers out there, but: we probably won’t be bonding over a glass of Arbor Mist anytime soon…
I make a mean Mojito – and I have over 20 recipes for them.
I never buy premixed drinks (unless it’s a certain infused simple syrup) – when someone wants a Mojito at Chez Webb, I take a trip to the herb garden, get down and dirty with my muddler and a short lifetime later I offer my friends or guests the best dang Mojito their taste buds have ever had the pleasure of basking in. I do make my own drink mix (yes, I have a lot of ventures, or “passions” should I say) – you can check it out at notsosimplesyrup.net.
My favorite drink at the moment is a Not So Simple Aperol Spritz.
I like to relax with a pristine craft cocktail. I’ve made so many mojitos for people, that I’m kind of spent on that for now. However, at the moment my favorite treat is Aperol, an Italian aperitif mixed together with orange Not So Simple Syrup & Brut Champagne. Cheers!
Thanks so much for reading. I’m sure you’re beyond enthralled and fascinated with my personal “fact list,” lol – and now’s your chance to print it out, gold-leaf it, bedazzle and frame it, and keep it forever. Stay tuned for more posts of a more legal nature: I try to make estate planning and small business law as exciting as I can, and I think I do a pretty decent job (if I do say so myself). Here’s to being proud and accepting of who we are and who we used to be – unless of course we’re involving Diet Coke or White Zin in the mix, then you should be ashamed of yourself and banished to a dark corner somewhere!
