Happy Birthday Katie!

As you readers out there may know (or will soon learn), we here at Algonquin love birthdays. It’s a chance to break out the cake, dust off our vocal pipes, and most importantly, celebrate ourselves.

.

Today is the birthday of our fabulous assistant marketing manager, Katie Ford. In her honor, we thought we’d list 10 reasons why she’s a unique snowflake.

.

1. She ran a marathon.

2. She can knit things, like this.

3. On that same knitting note: Once, when it was so cold in her old apartment in NYC, instead of getting up to turn on the heat, she knitted herself a hat.

4. Sometimes, she brings us homemade lemon squares.

5. She rescued a stray dog from a gas station, named him Tennessee, and brought him home.

6. She has a pet crawdad in a fifty-gallon aquarium.

7. She drinks coffee from a straw.

8. She was one of only twenty-five students from out of state to receive a scholarship to UNC Chapel Hill.

9. She always slouches in her chair after 2:00pm.

10. Her sister appeared as a child in television commercials.

Forget sweaters and hats–she once spent an entire Sunday knitting a stuffed chicken. JUST TO SEE IF SHE COULD. Happy Birthday, K-Ford!
