8 Things You Might Not Know About Me
  1. My middle name is Cay because my parents thought the letter C was a good middle initial.  My sister’s middle name rhymes with mine.
  2. In 1987 I received a commendation from the U.S. Army from my work there as a civilian.  I collected evidence of fraudulent welding practices on tanks that were later used in Iraq.   We used a cobalt source to see into the metal without destroying it.  Yes, it was radioactive and I can’t believe I did that.
  3. I’m still afraid of the dark and have nightlights throughout my house.
  4. I went to college at age 16 and graduated with a B.S. at age 20.  I  have no ego about being smart since I have a good friend who graduated at age 19 with a double major in electrical engineering and computer science. Oh, she also flies helicopters.   She’s way more impressive than me.
  5. While growing up, I spent most summers camping on the islands of Lake George in New York State.
  6. I’m among 2 % of people who see numbers in color in my head.  It’s a type of synesthesia.  They look like this to me 1234567890.  Each number always shows up as the same color. I share this trait with novelist Vladimir Nobokov, physicist Richard Feynman, and composer Franz Liszt.
  7. I’m in a constant battle to fight my pack rat urges.  It runs in my family.  After 30ish years of selling stuff at my parent’s house during Warrensburg’s Annual World’s Largest Garage Sale, I still have a lot of crap in my basement.
  8. I’ve done yoga continuously since 1989 right through all my pregnancies.  When I first told my parents about it, they thought I had joined a cult.
