5 things...plus two!

Thank you Rose! How sweet of you! I guess I have to tell you seven things about myself that you don't already know...

1. I almost didn't graduate college on time...my mother had to call and promise that I would take two summer courses at the local community college.


2. I was in a sorority while in college...hence the almost not graduating situation.

3. I never went to a prom...and I'm okay with that. I've heard too many horror stories about prom dates. Besides, I've been to many affairs since then with the most important person in my life.

4. I would skip class to watch General Hospital...see numbers 1 and 2.

5. I use to work for a chef, typing his recipes into a computer. He'd feed me the most wonderful meals.

6. I worked in a factory as a break relief person. It was a plastic injection molding factory. I had to trim the plastic pieces as they popped out of the machine. All the full-time people were people that didn't graduate from high school. I would wear Polo shirts to work and they would have their def leppard rock concert shirts on. I was nervous at first, but by the end of the summer it was great. They gave me a huge bottle of alcohol to send me back to my senior year in college. Two things I learned that summer. 1. They were the nicest people I have ever worked with and 2. I never want to work in a factory.

7. I would like to learn to rock climb...I think it's the cool clothes in Atheta that has me thinking about this one.

Ha! This was so fun to read. It seems you've had a heck of a lot of fun in your life. Way to go! The part about your mom calling the school is a hoot. See, why get all stressed out when you are young? Your good times were well worth it. You made it through and here you are today, hopefully continuing to add to your wonderful memory collection.

Aren't you glad you enjoyed the ride? I think we would have been good friends in college (or perhaps enablers), though I was more a Young & the Restless fan.

OK. Usually? I hate these things. People tell you all their boring cr*p like, "Oh, I hate chicken." Or, "I have three sisters, and one of them has freckles." But this was a really good one; you've done some cool things. And I LOVE that dress!

Thanks all...I do want to say that I redeemed myself in graduate school and ended up with a 3.8. Amazing what can happen when a few distractions are removed.

Interesting things - we don't have sorority groups in Scotland but I can imagine what fun it would be!
