Top-secret info about me, shared only with you and the 6 other people who read this far:
1) I have a loom in the living room. My husband keeps saying it takes up too much space and wants to get rid of it, but I tell him that, one day, I will weave magical carpets (or towels, I'm a bit hazy on which) and then we'll see who has the last laugh.
2) My husband has far more clothes and shoes than I do.
3) In 1987, I was offered both a job with Environment Canada and a sponsorship for the Miss Hong Kong pageant. I didn't take either, and I don't know which I regret more.
