1. I absolutely LOVE airports. Time zones don’t exist, and I find that magical. Also, when I fly, I always order tomato juice with ice. I do not drink this anywhere else except in the sky.

2. I drink iced coffee year round. I’m not a quitter.

3. I was a college cheerleader at Syracuse University. It was the classic “go with a friend to tryouts so they won’t be alone,” and then I made the squad and she didn’t. Also, in 8th grade, I was voted Most Valuable Cheerleader.
