Did you know ...

  • I hate spending money
  • when I was a kid I got to dance with a clown at the circus
  • my sister kicked out my 2 front teeth ... the Mickey Mouse Club was a big hit in the Newton household when I was a kid ... at the end of the show (when they sung) my sister and I would always fight over dancing/ jumping/ being spun with our mom ... on that day, my sister won the battle ... I was mad, and to make things worse, my mom spun my sister right into my face.
  • I can knit ... sort of
  • I knit right- handed
  • I love tea, black tea
  • I have an unhealthy obsession with Bacardi Rum
  • I saw Hilary Duff perform for the Today Show 2 years ago with my mom ... I think we were the only mother daughter duo whose combined age was over 40
  • there are 2 separate Christmases that I remember our fully decorated tree falling over ... (1) my cat Bandit ran up it (2) I did a somersault into the tree, watched it wobble, and then braced myself as it fell on me
  • speaking of Christmas ... my sister and brother went through phases where they asked for odd things from Santa ... Stephanie once asked for a Virginia Water Bed ... and Joey (instead of asking for a gift) pointed out to Santa that they were wearing matching boots.
