We love our partnership with Kristi Gustafson Barlette from the Times Union. She has truly become my friend and I respect her as a journalist. But when she asked me to give her some random facts about my life, I thought that it wouldn’t be interesting to her readers and our listeners, at all. But I do trust Kristi and I thought, why not. I will give it a go. I got to tell you, I wanted to find interesting facts that you may not know about me and in doing so, I really thought they were uninteresting.

Truth be told, I got to #16 and was stuck. I walked away from it for a while and when I came back, I came up with only one more. More proof, I felt, that not a lot of people would care.

Having said that, I just want to thank everyone who responded and were very nice about my 20 random facts or things they don’t know about me. If I just made you think that one of them was cool and different, I appreciate it.

And to Kristi, thank you for taking an interest and thinking that my life was worthy enough for your incredible blog topics in the Times Union.
