Brilliantly Brief

As I was reading the April 2008 Reader's Digest the other day, I came across a snippet preview into this book, Not Quite What I Was Planning, where the editors solicited six-word autobiographies on their website and made a book of all the submissions. They listed a few of the famous author entries:

Brought it to a boil, often. - Mario Batali (chef)

Couldn't cope, so I wrote songs. - Aimee Man (singer/songwriter)

Well, I thought it was funny. - Stephen Colbert, (actor & host of The Colbert Report)

Revenge is living well, without you. - Joyce Carol Oates (author)

Yes, you can edit this biography. - Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia)

I wonder what my six word bio would be?
  • Loved food a little too much
  • Wore yellow high heels with bows
  • Stubbed pinkie toe too many times
  • Couldn't bake without burning a few
  • Would not eat things that swam
  • Pinched every penny. Spent every dollar.
  • Didn't know food could do that
  • Has one awesome kid and husband!
So what would yours be?


  1. You are so creative! Here is mine (for now anyway): Used any excuse to hold hands.

  2. I love that- pinched every penny, spent every dollar. Story of my life.

  3. Posted cool pictures of blogging event--ice cream soon?
