The Facts of Whitney

Hey Lovelies!

Today I'm linking up with my fabulous name twin Whitney who writes at I Wore Yoga Pants to Work. If you don't read/follow her blog....well why don't you? She's hilarious.

Anyway, the whole point of this post is to tell you all some fab facts about me!

(A few of you dear, dear followers have slipped away since the beginning of the year, and I know I've been a bad blogger. Hopefully this post will help you get to know me a bit better...and stick around awhile.)

So basic facts.

Name: Whitney
Age: I'm.......27 (shhhh don't tell, I mean no one will believe you anyway...I get carded at the movies)
Height: 5'8"
Weight: None a yer darn bidness

Okay factoid numero uno: I've never broken a bone. Nope. Not a one

We are however pretty sure that I chipped my coccyx bone.

Yep. I chipped my ass. And I'll leave it to you to figure out the pronunciation of Coccyx.....its as funny as you think.

I fell down a flight of concrete steel capped steps, and....well I chipped my ass. It hurt a lot.

To make matters worse, no one believed me. 'Oh well, you fell down some stairs Whit, you're fine.'

Then my butt got all black and blue and bruisy and my mom was all like 'Oooooh snap, something is wrong!'

To make matters even worser (I am aware that's not a word), according to evolutionists, my coccyx, is the remnant of a tail we used to have. Great.

Factoid Number 2: I'm adopted.

Yeppers. My parents brought me home when I was 7 weeks old. Out of respect for Momma Boom's desire to not be featured on this here bloggy, and my father's lack of knowledge of the existence of this here bloggy I will leave out any cute baby picture of the two of them bringing me home.

I stayed in foster care for 7 weeks with the most amazing family. I was their first foster child and they took amazing care of me. We're talking down to detailed feeding notes. What time I ate, what I ate, and how much. I'm still in contact with them to this day. Oh, and for those first 7 weeks my name was Victoria!

Fact 3: I'm an only child.


I am my Momma Boom and Daddy Boom's only child together. And I have never lived with any siblings.

However I do have two older biological siblings that I know of. (Belonging to birth mom) I have a step brother and step sister, and a half brother.

Fact 4: I didn't celebrate my 21st Birthday

Well not the way most normal red blooded Americans do anyway.

Because 8 weeks prior to said momentous birthday, I gave birth to Boomer. So I had a grilled cheese at Cheesecake Factory, and totally nursed her right there at the table.

Fact 5: I'm a member of the Tribe

Yep courtesy of my biological mother (because you trace your lineage from your momma), I am Jewish. Hence I will make reference to my Jew fro (which is arguably my black fro too), we celebrate the holidays, and I love me some Challa and latkes (tho weirdly only with applesauce). Momma Boom has always been very cool about teaching me where I came from. Which included a strange foray into Irish Dancing.....

Fact 6: I'm always singing

From the time I was old enough to make musical sounds strung together, i.e. the crib, I have been a singer. I sang in children's choirs, for church, school choirs, you name it. I was a vocal performance minor in college. I sing along with the radio, which drives my mother NUTS, I sing stuff I make up while I clean the house, which drives Boomer NUTS. Even if I'm not singing, I'm probably singing in my head. In five part harmony.

Fact 7: Whitney and I are really.

Ok so technically Whitney is white....and I'm only half, but we're totally twins.

See we're both named Whitney. Which is awesome. Its the best name ever.

We are both Leo's. Which...well....explains a lot if you know about Leos.

We both share a love of reality TV, and hope to star in one. Maybe we should pitch a separated at birth story???

We also really love wine. Specifically white.

I would also like to think that Whitney and I are that inappropriate friend. I mean we obviously know how to conduct ourselves in public, and how to hold down a job. But we are likely to be that friend you have that just says exactly what's on our mind, and can always make you laugh by saying that thing in the situation that EVERYONE is thinking, but that no one will say out loud. We will also discuss bodily functions, what happened that last time you got really drunk, and the dirtiest joke and or story we can come up with. And that, is why you love us.

Unfortunately that's all I've got for today because it's apparently too cold in Columbus for the internet to work. Poop.

Can't wait to troll around and read all of your facts!

Well, well, well, look who it is ;-)

Whitney Ellen said...

Dammit, we really are twins. Except I'm going to have to come to Columbus and break your coccyx again if you don't get back on your blogging game, yo.

Latkes with applesauce are the tits. Ooops I just said tits. I also love them with some sour cream. Don't get me started on Matzo Ball soup.. I luz being a jew ;)

Katie said...

Loved all your facts, girl! I fractured/broke my coccyx too. In 1997. And that ish still bothers me. I actually did it cliff jumping and the impact of the water is what did me in. Holy OUCH! Me and my donut pillow were BFF's.

I had never broken a bone either until I turned 23 and then I flipped over my handle bars riding my bike. Like what?? I hope you can continue your streak because it's no fun!

Heather @ Cookies For Breakfast said...

Probably one of my favorite KGB (whoa, your blog abbreviation is KGB tee hee) posts ever, VICTORIA! Hahaha I couldn't resist! :)

What an amazing backstory on your life! I really loved reading it! And how amazing that you still are in touch with your original foster family - I have such warm fuzzies.

And? I have to give you props and a round of applause for how impressed I am that you, at a young mama age, nursed Boomer period, let alone at a restaurant. That takes gusto, my friend, and I am Impressed with a capital I. You're one in a million and I admire you :)

Wow does this sound too much like a love letter? I'm commenting past 10pm again... you know how that gets me nutty ;-)
