What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that I used to work on a farm and LOVED it! I loved the sound of the piglets chewing their lunches. I also had two pet peacocks when I was five and lived on a farm, but they were not very friendly.

My favourite book is In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje. I love houseplants, sweaters, watching clips of Soul train and standup comedy.
