Eight and One

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Sprinkles at the blog wyldechylde tagged me with these eight questions.  I like to answer them, but do not like to tag others - so if you want to play please...and let me know if you did with a link to your blog.

1. Have you ever seen a ghost? If you have, what's the story behind it? No - I have never seen a ghost, but when I was younger I was sure there was one living in my room that would change my radio station or turn on my stereo.  I called him Ralph.

2. What is your most embarassing moment? Have you got a few years?

3. What was your best job and why? The best job I ever had was teaching swim lessons and being a lifeguard at Round Lake in Eden Prairie.  It was a blast.  Isn't THAT sad?  I loved my jobs in radio too and there are things I like about every job, but that one was the most fun all around. 

4. What was your worst job and why? Probably the summer I worked temp at a bakery warehouse picking muffins off a line and putting them on trays to be packaged and sold in convenience stores across the land.  I still hate the idea of lemon poppyseed muffins.  bleh.

5. If you won the lottery, what would you do with the $?  Make my mom retire, pay bills, remodel my home - or if its a superhugeamount - build a home on a lake and fund research for good things or support an inner city school. 

6. Have you met any celebrities? If you have, what's the story behind it?  Have you got some time?  I have met quite a few celebrities - Tom & Roseanne owned their Big Food Diner when I was working radio in Ottumwa, IA - I got felt up by Greg Brady when they were taking a promotional picture for the station in Indy...I got a total body hug from Peter Tork of the Monkees - many many sports figures, I drove Bill Murray once...They are not that special.  They are nice or not - dorky or cool.  They are just people and they even tell dirty jokes. 

7. What is your favorite childhood memory? My parents gave me a great childhood.  How can I choose?  I guess my favorite time was when we drove to Colorado and back...it was pretty fun.  But all our trips were cool - even the "from hell" road trip to Florida where the electrical went and we could not roll down the windows.  "What DIED up in there???" hee hee.

8. What's your biggest regret?  Hindsight is 20/20 - you can wish you didn't do something, or DID do something, but you have to move on and not think about it.  Sorry - I am not regretting. 

And now for the sonnett of the day.  :)

This I imagined in my head as a "lyric" to an unfinished song...OMG so embarrassing if you could even HEAR THIS CRAP in YOUR head.  Ugh.  Here goes...

I'm in love with you tonight
and I know the feelings right
Its in everything you do
you make me feel so right. 

How Don Johnson is that?

Thanks for playing along!

I didn't know you worked in radio. How fun! Were you a dj? My brother went to school to become one. I don't think he ever did it except for when he was in school. Now he's a roadie.
