b* is doing a "100 facts in 100 days" about herself series. There are not 100 interesting or fun facts about me (and even if there were, they would surely give my real identity away), but I'm intrigued enough by the idea to offer a shorter version here: 7 Fun Facts about Jane in 7 Days. Besides, it's a busy week and my brain is already mush, so at least I'll have something to blog about.
Fun fact #1: I don't know if this is an annoying habit or an endearing habit, but I pick up words and phrases and inflections from other people completely unconsciously, and just as unconsciously they work their way into my everyday speech. So, for instance, I'll start hanging out with someone, and let's say they have a stock phrase or a way of inflecting their words. Within 10-15 minutes, I will find myself--without even trying--speaking with the same inflections and using the same phrase. It's kind of freaky. And sometimes I wonder if people think I am making fun of them, because I can be so dead on.
