7 true things about me
Ok, I was going to wait on this meme, when I had a day of theNaBloPoMo thingie where I couldn't think of anything else, but today is already that day. I'm so busy with the boyos home, I don't have time to do ANYTHING, including studing for my next exam. Ga.
So, this was issued by Des Moines Girl. I'm not tagging nobody.
Seven true things about me
Six are nice; one is not.
1 Two of my former clients are sports teams in this town. One plays on ice, and the other plays in the summer. If I were still in the biz, I would have been designing passes and other VIP stuff for a certain Series that just ended, like I did for the All St*rs game a few years back. I'm kinda bummed, but I also really didn't need the pressure. And considering how things ended, it's not such a bad thing.*
2 My favorite sports are Gaelic football and Sumo wrestling. Not to play, just to watch, as if that needed clarification.
3 I was in a sorority (only technically it was a women's fraternity, but it's hard to explain so don't ask) with Des Moines Girl. My favorite memory is the two of us in an upstairs room as we waited to be initiated. DMG was a tad nervous:
“We're virgins, we're in white, there are candles everywhere and they are CHANTING downstairs!”
To which I responded:
“Come on, it's ok. How bad CAN a goat be?”
After that a candle somehow got knocked over and almost started a house fire.
Anyway, we were initiated together, and that means a lot to me.
4 My dreams sometimes make me laugh. I once had a dream about an album called: 'Patron Wants It Rapt – A Christmas Album'.
5 When I was 23, I spent an afternoon with Ray Bradbury. It was like being in the presence of God, only without all the judgment and damnation and stuff.
6 I once rode an elephant in a circus.
7 I was stalked by two different men in college. It was not fun. One was later convicted on several counts of rape and sexual assault, the other had a gun and an engagement ring. And on this one occasion, if you leave a joke about stalking me in the comments, I probably won't appreciate it (well, unless you're hawt. Maybe. Ax murderers excluded.)
