In Honor (Honour) of our Bicenntenial Blog Entry - - WHICH BEA HAS NEVER ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE WAY

To honor our 201st blog entry, I've decided to post an entry to let all our gentle readers know a little bit more about me. I'd offer for the Lady Bea to do the same, yet seeing as the proverbial ball of our FITA challenge is still in her court, and seeing as she has yet to acknowledge our 200th blog, she probably won't. Now I shall lay that guilt trip aside, and move on to the challenge at hand.

Here's how it works: You are supposed to write a note with 10 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you, so here it goes: 10 random things about Auntie Mame.
  1. I have an obsession with John Travolta. I own his shoes, a scrapbook of pictures that I collected as a kid, all kinds of stuff. When other little girls were swooning over Leonardo DiCaprio in Tiger Beat, I was clipping out pictures from Reader's Digest of John.
  2. My favorite movie of all time is Saturday Night Fever. Possibly because of my previously mentioned love of John Travolta, but in all seriousness I can relate to a lot of the movie and the main characters.
  3. Whenever I get lonely for the "good old days" I listen to the soundtrack of Empire Records, Counting Crows August and Everything After, Gin Blossoms New Miserable Experience and Alanis Morresette's Jagged Little Pill. Each of those CDs, in entirety, remind me of very special days in my teenage years.
  4. I could eat bake at home pizza or Mexican food every day of the week and be perfectly happy for the rest of my life.
  5. The movie 40 Year Old Virgin rescued me from post-pardum depression. I watched it every day for weeks. I owe my sanity to Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell.
  6. I represent my three oldest, and best friends in my mind by three bands: Journey, Air Supply, and Chicago. They know which is which.
  7. The best job I have ever had was as a music manager at Borders. If I were to chose retail as a career, I could have stayed there forever. We had a great time.
  8. I have an obsession with stand up comedy. I can identify a comedian by a line from their bit, their physical description, or on of their appearances.
  9. I'm a fairly good artist. Mostly cartoonish stuff, but it's good! I make "movie posters" for all the stories that my students read.
  10. In junior high/high school I created a collage on my closet doors of favorite magazine clippings, quotes, pictures, etc. It was amazing! One night in a fit of rage after some boyfriend problems, I'm sure, I ripped it down. It took years to create. It's a big regret.

Okay, so I listen to all the same albums when I'm nostalgic except that I swap in the first Paula Cole CD instead of Empire Records. I found an awesome new Mexican restaurant out here, BTW. Oh, and I miss that collage. *sigh* Good times.
