9 Random things about me......


* when i was 17 i was a tour guide through our historic old town and the state capital - Sacramento
don't remember very much of my spiel....

* i've been a photographer since i was in third grade, whatever age you are then, still have my first photographs....somewhere.....around here..

* i've been inside a rodeo arena, just outside the shoot gate taking pictures of bullrides...had my own bullfighter....yup.....was able to leap tall arena fences in a single bound.....

* i've bungee jumped....yup....right off a perfectly good train bridge 200' over the Feather River....only once though.....screamed the whole time....'get me on the fokken bridge!!!!!!!'

* i have two different colored eyes - one hazel, one green...

* i desecrated Patsy Cline's "Crazy" singing karaoke one night while i was still drinking...haven't karaoke'd since! (you're welcome)

* at 18 i was a Princess House Crystal consultant....figured since I started collecting it when i was 16 i should probably start selling it...so I could get more, free.

* i was the Queen of Hearts for the local chapter of the American Heart Association, in 1972....had a sash and rode a float in a parade....

* in high school i collected M&M wrappers, i don't remember why, but, eventually i had a laundry basket full.

Okay, why 9 things, because 9 is the perfect number, just check out Bonnie and her post "...to the nines" at Original Art Studio

patsy kline's "crazy" is my ultimate karaoke song. she possesses me when i sing it. i love it! :-) but as for bungee jumping, i never had any desire to pee my pants in front of a whole lot of people, so i never tried it. and i collected a tin of green M&Ms in high school, saving them from every package. i think they finally got too old and had to be throw away. why do we do that stuff?
