100 Things About Me (third installment)

  1. I didn’t learn to ride a bike until I met Mark, he taught me. I’m still scared every minute I’m on one.
  2. I do not have a tattoo. I always assumed I would regret getting one. Now I regret not getting one. I may have to remedy that.
  3. I cannot sing. Tone deaf. I cannot play an instrument. But I need music around me.
  4. I dated Mark 10 years before I married him.
  5. We have been married 14 years.
  6. I am not one to hide my age. I’m turning 52.
  7. Mark and I go to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival whenever we can.
  8. Because I love this festival, people assume I love jazz. I do not. I love blues, Cajun, zydeco, old country, folk, rock, bluegrass, and I can sometimes enjoy opera, though.
  9. I’ve taken a lot of French classes, but I can’t seem to learn another language. This disappoints me.
  10. My dad died at age 59. Colon cancer, I get checked.
  11. If there are potato chips in the house, I eat them. No matter if I’m hungry.
  12. I’d rather live in the city than in the country.
  13. I like turtles. I think my totem is a turtle.
  14. I like to dance. I like contra dancing, though I rarely manage to go.
  15. When I was five, I let a boy put a worm on my tongue on a dare. I should never have let Mark know about this, he tells people about it at inopportune times.
  16. I love art museums.
  17. I have a builder’s license.
  18. I love making watercolors, but only if they are 4″x6″ or smaller.
  19. I never liked winter, but I mind it less than I ever have, even with seven properties to shovel.
  20. When I was a child reading the comics, I read a Ripley’s Believe It or Not about a man who was frightened to death when he saw skeletons dancing. This terrified me, I was sure I would run into dancing skeletons. To reassure me, my sister explained I had a skeleton inside me. This had the opposite effect, and is where my death obsession/skeleton obsession started.
  21. I talk to my cats, my stuffed animals, and to the tv. They are all less likely to disagree with me than my husband.
  22. I don’t mind if you make fun of me. I do mind if you make fun of my artwork.
  23. I am slowly getting over my phobia of telephones, though I still prefer email.
  24. The first rock and roll concert I attended was the Rolling Stones at Cobo Hall, with my sister. We got the expensive tickets. They were $6.50 each. We had a blast!
  25. I rarely go to big concerts anymore, Mark and I prefer smaller venues, with great music. There is plenty of that around.
