artIt is the end of the year and the fun time when we in the public relations industry enjoy making lists! So as a type of list I thought it would be fun to do a #FunFactFriday list with the staff at HMA Public Relations.

Here are some fun facts about each of us and it is up to you to determine which HMA staffer goes with each set of facts!

#1 - This HMA staffer can’t fall asleep if his/her closet door is open – even just a little bit and will get out of bed to close it if it is left open. Also, Harvey Mackay (business columnist) and Dear Abby (advice columnist) are his/her cousins!

#2 This HMA staffer LOVES gift wrapping. So much that he/she makes his/her parents wait on wrapping gifts so he/she can wrap them (If gift wrapping could be a career, it would be his/hers). This staffer also loves cactuses (and yes, cactuses is another plural form of cactus), which is fitting since he/she lives in the desert.

#3 This HMA staffer and his/her family have cut down their own Christmas tree for more than 25 years and Santa (who is actually #1’s dad) arrives live and in person at his/her house on Christmas eve.

#4 This HMA staffer loves Bubble Yumm Bubble Gum and will chew an entire pack in an hour and loves collecting coffee cups even though he/she doesn’t drink hot coffee.

#5 This HMA staffer loves decorating Christmas sugar cookies but you will never catch him/her eating one, because he/she doesn’t like them. He/she also enjoys showering at gyms as it makes him/her feel like he/she is at a spa.

#6 This HMA staffer was born with very little cartilage in his/her ear so he/she can actually fold them up – and do so far more than he/she should as a professional. This staffer’s dad – who was actually half-Jewish and converted to Judaism before he/she was born – was a freak for Christmas everything. So much so, at one point growing up they had four or five full-sized trees around their house, and at least 100 collectible Santas scattered about.








Let us know your selections!

    Who knew that Dear Abby was a cousin of Scott’s? Sounds like fodder for a future blog. . .Cheers, David
