- I marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when I was a sophomore in HS, and it was so much fun! I got to see Jim Henson and Frank Oz while they were doing sound checks before riding in the parade, too. All my friends were excited about seeing Eric Estrada, but I didn't care much about him.
- I love Indian food. My husband doesn't like it, but his friends do, so when they want to make me feel special, they take me out for Indian - isn't that sweet?
- I think my son is one of the best artists of his age. His drawings are really amazing. Too bad he currently is so obsessed with military history that he's just drawing that stuff. I loves to draw people, though, and his faces get better all the time. They really look like the people he is drawing!
- I love naps. I love the luxury of being able to sleep whenever I need/want to. I think I get this from my father, who takes naps all the time now that he's retired.
- If a young person asks me to buy something to support their school programs/extra-curricular activities, I will buy something (unless I'm flat broke). I sold so many candy bars and grapefruits and cheeses when I was in band and orchestra that I can't resist helping others in this.
- I am friends with a lot of people (no secret) because I like everyone . . . but I have very few close, close friends. I don't really understand why, but it is just the way I am.
- I have always wanted to travel around the world, but so far the only other country I've been to is Canada. Sad, huh?
- When I was younger, in college and before, I was planning to become a Methodist Minister. I changed my mind as a senior in college. A way long time ago, though, when I was in Middle School, I wanted to be a Librarian. Go figure. Mostly, back then, it was because I loved my school librarians (elem. and middle). Besides, if I can't be a Lounge Singer, I figure Librarian is the next best thing. (I'm secretly holding out hope that I can do both someday)
- I break out in song spontaneously. Anyone who knows me knows that I have at least one song rumbling around in my head all the time. My son tells me that not everyone does. Is that really true? You don't all have music in your head all the time? Poor you!
- I am not in any nameable generation, really. I was born right at the end of the Baby Boom, and, being the youngest of 3, I really relate more to them than to the X-ers sometimes . . . but then there are many ways in which I really am one of the X-ers. I like to think that those of us born in the mid-1960's have our own little gen going. You know who you are!
And then it was Seattle
