Nothing but computer problems. Yesterday, my internet was down. Today, it’s been off and on intermittently. And, of course, the times when it is working are the times the tech guy needs to get on it to back up my files and such. By the end of the day, I will FINALLY have my new computer. I can’t wait, it’s going to be all high-tech and fast. Being a computer nerd, this is important to me. Not much new going on with me. We watched American Juniors last night. Wow. That show is terrifying. Yeah, the kids were cute, especially when they were dancing. But some of those kids were so precocious it was downright scary. Not to mention the awful stage parents. I used to joke that if I got a talented child I would cash him or her in, but not anymore. They can cash themselves in when they’re old enough to drive. So, since I couldn’t get online yesterday and practically my entire job depends on my ability to access the internet, I filled out one of those survey things. The ones that ask questions that you answer about yourself and then send to a million of your closest email friends. And, since I get the occasional email from a random reader asking me questions about myself, I thought I would post the survey here, for your pleasure.
B – Born on what day of the week? Wednesday. I didn’t even have to look it up. I’m freaky with dates like that.
C – Chore you hate? All of them.
D – Dad’s name? Kirk
E- Essential makeup item? Hmm…I think Mascara, because my eyelashes are long, but blonde, so without mascara it’s hard to see them.
F – Favorite actor? Whatever. I have no idea! I really can’t think of anyone where I say “I have to see that movie JUST BECAUSE so and so is in it.”
G – Gold or silver? Both. I switch it up, because I’m cool like that. My watch is both gold AND silver, so I just say it all ties in. All the rings I wear are gold, though. I don’t like the way silver looks on my hands. But, I did like David Silver on Beverly Hills, 90210, and there was a time when I would have liked the way he looked on my hands. What? You’re gross.
H – Hometown? Newbury Park, CA, but I was born in Hollywood and I like to flaunt how glamorous that sounds to people who don’t know how crappy Hollywood actually is.
I – Instruments you play? Piano, harmonica, and guitar, but not very well. I also sing, and any singer will tell you that the voice in an instrument. Isn’t that pretentious?
J – Job title? A&R Director, or Coordinator, or Rep, or whatever else my boss thinks makes me sound important depending on the situation. He changes it all the time. I think I should get a pay raise with every change. This is the reason why I don’t have business cards.
K – Kids? Someday, when the miracle of modern science makes it so that babies don’t hurt when you squeeze them out, I’ll get some. Or when they are on sale, because I hear they cost a lot.
L – Living arrangements? A three bedroom palace that I share with Jackie and Bella, with the occasional overnight guest.
M – Mom’s name? Linda
N – Need… money, and lessons on how to save it.
O – Overnight hospital stays? Once, when I was on a choir trip to Seattle, I got really sick and had to be admitted to the hospital at 1 AM…I was discharged at 10 AM…does that count?
P – Phobia? I hate feet. I fear spiders. I don’t like heights, but that’s because of my crazy crazy vertigo.
Q – Quote you like? I have a few.
“Nothing is so bad as something that it can’t be worse,” I don’t know who said that…
“I ate too much plastic candy,” Ralph Wiggum, The Simpsons
“Music is the key to the female heart.” -Johann G. Seume,
“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”- Red Auerbach
“Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.” -Unknown
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”-Victor Hugo, hmmm, sensing a theme?
“Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.” -Belva Davis
“Who ever thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?” Wicked Witch of the West, The Wizard of Oz
R – Religious affiliation? None.
S – Siblings? One. Male. Kyle. Twin. No, not identical.
T – Time you wake up? Well…this depends on where I am waking up. Anywhere from 6:30 AM to 7:30 AM.
U – Unique talent? Well, I can be kind of freaky when it comes to days and dates, and I can do this weird thing with my feet when I walk, which I know is strange since I hate feet so much.
V – Vegetable you refuse to eat? I love veggies, so there really aren’t many…I guess string beans. I really can’t think of another.
W – Worst habit? My hatred for chores probably ranks up there. I crack my knuckles and my back and neck, which I hear isn’t good for you. I hit the snooze button on my alarm sometimes.
X – X-rays you’ve had? Oh my God, so many…both of my arms a few times, both of my ankles a few times, my chest a few times when I had bronchitis, my head about 10 times (seriously, not in a funny Oh you so crazy kind of way), my nose, my teeth, my right hand…THANK YOU SOFTBALL.
Y – Yummy food you make? Everything I make tastes like God touched it.
Z – Zodiac Sign? Cancer. I’m Crabby.
