What is one thing that you would change about yourself if you could?
I'm just too old to change. Next!
Name three exotic countries you would like to visit:
But that would be telling...
What do you think the secret to life is?
Love, and Evolution. I like the quote from Carl Sagan that was posted here a couple of days ago.
And, an aside....Tlbt ...Thanks!
Neil Diamond from the nosebleed seats in the Sports Arena one year. It was fantastic. I was deaf for a week!
Song you can listen to over and over and not get tired of:
There are many, many songs that are in this list, but I'll pick one...."Landslide"
Worst movie music soundtrack or score:
I have no idea what is the worst. I can't even remember any bad ones. But then I don't watch a lot of crappy movies like Eating Rauol anymore. Don't go there....lol
A song you wish wouldn't get stuck in your head but always does:
I don't have one.
Who was your FIRST date?
A random blind date- a nice kid, really, who was a friend of my work friend's boyfriend.
Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Oh yes. all the time. I married him.
What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
My little cousins and I would beg our grandpa for a sip of his whiskey when we all sang together so it was then. He gave us a half a thimbleful. I still have the now tiny thimble as it was my grandmother's. She was a tiny little hill folk Gal, all of 4'7".
What was your FIRST job?
For Cash money? Carpenter
What was your FIRST car?
A red 55 Merc, in High School.
Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
I took a ride at an airshow in a biplane. We just went up and circled around the airfield and back down. I was about 35.....
Who was your FIRST best friend; do you still talk?
No. We'd been best friends for about three years. And, it ended badly when I said to her, in the fifth grade, "I love you". She took it to mean something I'd never heard of in my life. That is OK but that's not what I meant. I probably would have taken a bullet for her I cared for her so much.
I'm so glad that kids can now say this to each other and not have a "blow up in your face" thing happen that is both confusing and heartbreaking. Now, looking back, I know I didn't do anything wrong. It really WAS her problem.
Whose wedding did you attend the FIRST time?
My niece's first wedding. And, it literally was the first wedding I'd ever attended. I missed my Sister-in-Law's wedding because our baby was very sick and it was a three hour drive and a stay over night. I was not happy about it but babies need to stay put when they are so sick.
Tell us about your FIRST roommate.
She was a senior at UCLA, and was amazingly kind and just a beautiful person. We stayed in touch until just before she died a few years ago. She taught me so much. She showed me what it takes to pick up the pieces and go on after losing a child. I will love you, Pat, forever.
If you had one wish, what would it be (other than more wishes)?
Darn, that's what I was going to wish for... you are mean! I used to think that I'd wish for my daughter back healthy and happy. But then, she would have to die all over again at some point and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
What is something you would learn if you had the chance?
Latin. I want to speak it.
Did you marry the FIRST person you were in love with?
Yes, as a matter of fact, I did.
What were the first lessons you ever took and why?
I never had music lessons or any other lesson as a kid other than what I learned, which was Encyclopedic, at my mother's knee. So, a long way down the road.... I think it would have to be Upholstery. We took the adult extension classes and had an amazing teacher. ROP is still one of the best programs that was ever created.
What is the first thing you do when you get home?
I take of my shoes and my *&%$@!* brassiere!
