FUN FACTS (about me):

1. I manually flush automatic toilets.

2. I was once a figure drawing model.

3. My favorite textile pattern is seersucker.

4. I have an affinity for the number 8. No reason.

5. I'm right handed, but I typically shave with my left.

6. I still cut myself while shaving—unrelated to previous fact.

7. I know the ins and outs of Parcheesi. Pawn of choice: camels.

8. I once had bangs that went past my chin. Can send pics for proof.

9. I've sang along to "Hey Jude" with one of The Beatles, so that's pretty cool.

10. I've rated and reviewed every movie I've watched for over a year. Check out my Letterboxd

11. Koalas have two opposable thumbs on each hand (this fact's not about me, but I think more people should know it).
