Mar in a Nutshell
I love Orange Soda.
I intentionally mismatch my clothes.
Horrible clumsiness + Kidney Disease = I bruise like an old Peach.
Civic Engagement drives me as a member of society.
I have been dubbed “The Salt Police.” Pick up the salt shaker…I dare you.
I have a massive family. I wouldn’t trade my large, dysfunctional bunch for anything.
There are amazing people everywhere. I can feel at home wherever I go.
I prefer to be called Mar, but have been known to answer to: Snugs, Shmar, Punjab, Yram, Mer, B, Mar Bear and hey you in the weird outfit.
I love to cook.
I dislike Bob Barker…alot…and I’m not sure why.
I sleep with an eye mask.
My favorite color is Green.
I always wanted an American Girl doll when I was little. So much so that I found myself a little biter because I only got the books. It’s pathetic that my niece and her 7 dolls is what cured my disease.
I love to travel. There’s an ongoing competition in my family regarding who gets to all 50 states first. I’m in second place with 48. ”The world is a book; those who don’t travel read only one page.”
I had a weird obsession with Days of our Lives in junior high. I kept scrapbooks, wore t-shirts, and dragged Laura and my Mom to the annual southern Illinois festival. Yikes.
I think my niece and nephew are two of the coolest people I know.
I love Minnesota Public Radio with a passionate rage.
I grew up on a Christmas Tree Farm and treasure the fragile memories I hold from this period of my life.
I play the Clarinet and the Spoons.
I love The Beatles dearly.
When I was little, all I wanted to be when I grew up was a Magician.
I love to create, especially by recycling and re-purposing. Junk to one is treasure to another.
