Five Haute Facts About Haute Girl

I was tagged by former What’s Haute co-contributor, Frapp, who wants to know weird/interesting/odd/random facts about me so here goes!

1. I’m a self-taught handbag designer. I have my own line – and yes, I’ve written about it here. I’m a one-woman show – I cut, sew, sell, and ship – I do it all myself. I’ve always loved handbags – bought ’em (I own about 70 other than my own brand), talked about ’em, carried ’em, so it was only natural that I design ’em too!

2. Previously, I was a research scientist for almost ten years. Really. I’ve done cancer research, immunology, eye and ear research, etc. I rocked the lab coat, safety goggles, latex gloves and all. But I still managed to look haute doing so. (Underneath the white coat I’d wear knee-high stiletto boots, A-line skirt, and a cute top. I was the hottest lab nerd ever.)

3. I love roller coasters. I loved being flipped around, twirled upside down – all of it. I love to go to Six Flags every summer and ride the rides until I make myself sick!

4. I have a photographic memory – if I see something written on a piece of paper or see a person on the train, I can remember the information, person’s face, etc., and remember exactly where I was and what I was doing/saying/thinking at the moment.

5. I am narcoleptic – I can and will fall asleep at any given time. (It’s an art). I have fallen asleep at parties with extremely loud music in the background, the movies, driving, class, and even in a meeting with my boss! It’s a problem, I know, but it’s mostly funny. (And no, my boss didn’t fire me).

I’m tagging the following blogs:

    You’re so lucky to have a photographic memory! And if you think falling asleep ata prty is bad: I once fell asleep on a tennis court! And I’m not narcoleptic, that was just me tired!

    that’s hilarious! I haven’t fallen asleep playing tennis yet- I think I’d hurt myself!

    You don’t know how many times I’ve wished I had a photographic memory, it would be so damn handy!

    That is so cool that you design bags and the rest of your list was funny and pretty awesome.

  8. Q says:

    Very chic blog you got here. I esp. like the straw bags a couple posts down. That’s awesome that you’re a chemist/scientist, I’m currently taking chem and my fellow classmates are known to verbally prod me when I’m clomping around the lab in my heels. =D Glad I’m not alone.
