On my LIST of things to do...

TEN RANDOM THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME:

I was in the circus when I was a kid, living in Indiana.

I worked in the entertainment department of Walt Disney World for 13 years (throughout high school/college/post-college) part-time, for beer money. No, there is no air conditioning in the costumes.

I speak Spanish, German, Korean and Japanese. Sorta. Better than most, but not as much as natives. Duh.

I have a degree in Music Education from the University of Miami. GO CANES.

I've played piano since I was 4.

I cannot cross my eyes.

I prefer my dog's company to most people.

I hate broccoli.

I am saved by Grace through faith in Christ.

I am left-handed.

NINE PLACES I'VE VISITED:

Melbourne, Australia

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Panmunjon, Korea (the DMZ)

Venice, Italy

Edinburgh, Scotland

Prague, The Czech Republic

Amsterdam, Holland

Kyoto, Japan

Lawton, Oklahoma

EIGHT WAYS TO WIN MY HEART:

Love me, love my dog.

Play the guitar and sing me love songs.

Be a gentleman.

Talk me down off the ceiling when I'm having a meltdown - and not be scared of it.

Have faith in Christ.

Be smarter than me - and share it - so I learn more.

Quote movies and songs like it's your job.

Love me, love my family. They are my heart.

SEVEN THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE:

Become a wife and a mother.

Learn how to waterski. Successfully.

Read the Bible.

Subscribe to a newspaper.

Own my own home.

Have the perfect kiss.

Live on the water- where it's warm and I can swim before work.

SIX THINGS I'M AFRAID OF:

Guns.

Any horror movie. Can't watch. Never have seen one and I never will.

Disappointing people.

Motorcycles.

Snow skiing.

FIVE THINGS I DON'T LIKE:

Litter.

Low self-esteem. I don't mix well with folks that are low on this. Dig down deep, find out what the source of that is - then handle it, and move on.

Broccoli.

People that don't like dogs. I don't understand them.

People without cellphones. What?

FOUR WAYS TO TURN ME OFF:

Get upset when I cancel plans at the last minute. I'm a Leo and I'm flaky. This is me and this is how I've always been. Barring any big events (weddings, trips, etc.). I never flake on those. Nor do I ever get upset when my friends do this to me.

Don't send a thank-you note when someone does something nice for you. That's so tacky.

Not living on the high road. The weather's so nice and the real estate is reasonable.

Name call. If we're going to disagree, let's disagree - let's not fight, raise our voices and name call. Infantile.

THREE THINGS I DO EVERY DAY:

Tell Chester I love him.

Check my e-mail.

Listen to music.

TWO THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY:

Chester and Kayla. The best days are when they're together.

Coupons and great savings at the grocey store.

ONE THING ON MY MIND RIGHT NOW:

I wish it wasn't Monday. It's 1030am, and I'm still in bed. Blogging.
