1.) I love music. The problem is that the music that I love is mostly comprised of what many might classify as "bad" music. Anything from the 80's--bring it on. Some of my "signature songs" that you'll find on almost any cd I burn for people:
- "Joey" (Favorite line: "And if you're somewhere drunk and passed out on the floor, Joey, I'm not angry anymore")
- "Mandy" Yes, that "Mandy" (Favorite line: The entire song, with the volume maxed out)
- "Elderly Woman in a Small Town" (Favorite line: "I just want to scream, 'hello', my God it's been so long, never dreamed you'd return")
- "Anna Begins" (Favorite line: ""If it's love," she said, "then we're going to have to think about the consequences." She can't stop shaking I can't stop touching her and... This time when kindness falls like rain It washes her away and Anna begins to change her mind "These seconds when I'm shaking leave me shuddering for days," she says And I'm not ready for this sort of thing")
2.) I taught myself how to French braid using a doll and directions from Lady's Home Journal when I was ten.
3.) I cannot look at a piece of meat without thinking of the animal that once was. I wish that I were built differently most of the time, because sometimes, I really, really crave steak, or grilled chicken, or salmon, but I just cannot bring myself to eat it.
4.) Someone once convinced me that it was not Eddie Vedder on stage prior to a concert and talked me into not going up there to chat. She knows that I will inscribe this on her tombstone if she leaves this earth before me. However, I did once convince her that her ankle was not broken and insisted that if she just continued to drink more, she'd feel fine.
5.) I love sports. Love to play, love to watch, love to read about them.
6.) Fall is my favorite season. The smell of the leaves, the temperature of the days, the way the Queens laugh when they are playing in leaves. Those are perfect days to me.
7.) At the end of each day, I still say my prayers, no matter where I am or who I'm with.
