10 Fun Things About Steff Deschenes

by Steff Deschenes

1. I have multiple tattoos, including the longitude and latitude of an apple orchard on my right inner forearm arm.

2. I asked to major in "Snowboarding" in college; they put me in Liberal Arts instead. A couple years later I asked to major in "Backpacking Europe"; again, the kept me in Liberal Arts. Very disappointing.

3. I tried out for the USBSF (United States Bobsled and Skeleton Federtion) Olympic team.

4. Some people like to look in other people's medicine cabinets; I like to look in people's refrigerators.

5. I made a demo CD of twelve original songs I wrote, played guitar, and sang to; only one copy remains, and it's hidden!

6. I've had loads of jobs, including being a sports writer, a baker, a canvasser, an au pair, an actress, a substitute teacher, a model, and I've worked in marketing departments for beer, gelato, eco-friendly jewelry, and technology companies.

7. My rabbit, Boone, was named after a character from the TV show LOST (side note: I would have rather watched them chase each other around the island for another four years then have the show end the way it did!).

8. I have a crippling fear of things like opening a bag of popcorn and having a kernel pop in my eye; clowns; passing out in the shower (I'm not nervous about the drowning part, it's the idea of someone finding me all naked like); and of losing my freckles.

9. I was mistakenly put in advanced algebra when I was in middle school. My teacher felt so bad for me that he'd give me extra points for doodling farm animals on my tests so that I wouldn't fail and have to retake it! That didn’t work in high school, though.

10. Immediately following the release of "The Ice Cream Theory" my sister and I went on an ice cream bender to promote the book. We went to, and ate ice cream at, ten (TEN!) ice cream stores in town. Would I do it again? Heck yeah! Maybe. You know, let me think about it. . . (You can see the videos here!)

If you thought this was funny, you need to pick up a copy of her book, The Ice Cream Theory!
