Side B(e Myself)
Things you probably wouldn't know about me, just by looking:
I spell my nickname Chelle not Shell. On rare occasions and when two or more Michelles are gathered, I go by Frankie.
My father's nickname for me is: Tootsie...because I would take off my socks and shoes and throw them out of the crib when I was a baby...it's still the first thing l do when I get home. Only now, it includes, pants. I hate being in pants all day!
A few things I love: flowers (especially lilacs and orchids), Christmas lights against the night, (the) Foo Fighters and of course big strong hugs, that energize you.
In a perfect world: I would be a fearless reflection of love, all of the time.
I probably know just about every line in: Ghostbusters, Zoolander and Tango & Cash
And for some odd reason, there's something about Wyatt Earp's legend that makes me wish I lived during that period to see everything first hand....even though I probably would not have survived a day because...well...think about it.
