Ok Jeff, I accept your challenge...

Here are 8 things you may not know about me, I'll try to make these interesting...

1. When I was a toddler, the doctor said I would be lucky to reach 5'-0" in height as a full-grown adult. When I started high school I was only 4'-10" but am now a whopping 5'-5".

2. I was valedictorian of my high school with a 4.11 GPA at Ceres High School.

3. Unlike our friend Louis who started this "8 things you may not know about me..." blog chain, I didn't get into UC Berkeley, even with my GPA and 1330 SAT score and tons of extracurricular activities. They said I was not culturally diverse enough.

4. I have ridiculously long femurs (bone in the upper leg).

5. I had a stylin' bowl cut from third grade all the way up to seventh grade and old men used to always call me "son" because of it.

6. I am a grammar nerd and like to correct people when they make mistakes.

7. I was fifth and sixth grade spelling bee champ at my elementary school and participated in the Ceres Unified School District and Stanislaus County spelling bees. One year I got second place at the district level for spelling "colonel" wrong. I still hate that word, why the heck is it pronounced "kernel" when it has no "r"????

8. I love Harry Potter and have read all the books at least once and seen all the movies to date. Book 7 is pre-ordered and should arrive this Saturday, yeah!!!

Friends and family, feel free to comment with 8 things we don't know about you!

I was "this close" to putting my Spelling Bee prowess in there, but didn't want to be too nerdy. I got to states twice after winning Yuba County, in 5th and 7th grade. In 5th grade, I was #17 in the state. I won district twice, and school competition three times. (4th, 5th, 7th grades)
