Hey I got tagged by Beth, a fellow blogger who writes about life as the principal of an elementary school - I love reading from "the other side of the wall" and wondering how similar her experiences are to my own children's dear principal.

And now I'm concerned that I may have placed the apostrophe in the wrong place in the sentence above. Anyone?

Thanks for the good news in the last post! Makes me realize that I have way more good news than I remember most of the time.

Six random things....

#1 Last night I played in a cool little venue called The Creole Gallery, and it was SOLD OUT! I did not think we'd have a crowd on a Wednesday night, especially with the cold - that was fun! That's me with the electric bass, and my cousin is also in the band - he is on your left, and plays all sorts of really interesting percussion instruments.

Wow that was a long first random thing. I could have just said, "I'm in a band."

#2 My favorite candies of all time are Whoppers and Strawberry Twizzlers.

#3 I am a vegetarian but I've fallen off the wagon in the past year. I don't eat it often, but every once in a while...bring on the beef.

#4 My secret wish has always been to be a Solid Gold Dancer.

#5 I can't figure out my hair.

#6 I have a mysterious talent for interpreting dreams, determining dog breed mixes, and writing out imaginary conversations for people who are not sure what to say in most any situation.

I think I kind of cheated and put three in one there at the end. Oh well.

I'm tagging Kelle, Molly, KEK, Kristy, Carin and Diane.

Great list! I used to tell my mom I wanted to be a Solid Gold Dancer. Well, and I told her I wanted to be a truck driver, too. And when you do figure out your hair, please clue me in. I finally just left it a curly mess because I can't figure out what else to do with it.

I thank God for your talent #3 in helping me say what I need to say but don't know how to say!

1. I'm too stupid to follow a list of rules properly. I seriously find anything with more than two instructions absolutely impossible to follow - as exhibited by my posting my list right here on your comment stream. Sorry, Kulio.

2. I hate flying. I have to fly soon, and I'm already stressing about it. I'm always convinced the plane will go down, so I give my kids extra kisses before every flight. I suppose I have a distorted sense of statistic because of my job...I tell myself airline crashes are a statistical anomaly and I KNOW that...but still am scared out of my wits at the slightest hint of turbulence

3. I could live forever on Old Dutch dill pickle chips, red wine, Clementine oranges, my mother-in-law's spaghetti, French onion soup with big cheesy baguette croutons, and Toblerone bars. But because I'm trying to get in shape, the only things I really eat often are the Clementines.

4. I wish I played my piano more. It's a bit out of tune and my hands are sluggish because I don't practice as much as I once did. I miss it. I love playing cheesy elevator wedding music - in another life, I was a wedding pianist and I loved it. Gotta play more.

5. I would love to star in a Broadway musical one day. But since I can't sing, dance, or act, I suppose that won't be happening anytime soon.

6. I really do recognize daily how lucky I live where I do, with my beautiful family and the opportunities I enjoy. I know it sounds mushy, but I really can't believe my fortune sometimes. Although I wouldn't mind a bigger house. And maybe a full-time maid. And a cook. Yeah, that'd be pretty cool.

Oh yeah - I love Whoppers, too! They're awesome.
