My week is looking slammed already - isn't that a great feeling for a Sunday evening. Checking work email should be ILLEGAL. I have this Sunday afternoon ritual of checking, answering and creating work email and I really need to quit it. Between work and school, I fear that I will not be able to post or remember to post the answers to the Truth and Lies quiz. Here goes and I've included information.
1. I have shaken Bill Clinton's hand TRUE
Bill was at a rally over at the Claremont colleges and I was standing in the front row getting squeezed to death while holding my cousin's three year old daughter, Megan. He took my (available) hand and while he was shaking it, held our hands together with his other hand. Oh, I was smitten and awestruck. Amazing presence and very, very tall. So charming and made me weak in the knees.
2. One wedding present we will treasure forever- an autographed B52's CD by the fabulous - Cindy Wilson. TRUE
B52's are one of D's and mine fave bands. Imagine our surprise and excitement when we were opening up wedding presents to find an autographed CD. My parents good friends Tom and Camille have connections around all parts of Georgia where they knew someone who knew Cindy and was able to obtain this sweet treasure for us. We listen to it all the time and make a point to listen to it on our anniversary.
3. I can sing the alphabet backwards.TRUE
While attending Catholic school, one year part of the Christmas/holiday program required us to sing the alphabet backwards. The only reason why I was able to memorize it and can still remember it is because of the melody. I can sing it pretty quick until I get to the letter J and then I have to think about it.
4. Back in my running days, when I was in shape - I once ran in the rock and roll 1/2 marathon. FALSE
I've always wanted to run a marathon and it's on my list of things to do after I finish the master's program. I have run 5 k's but no kind of marathon. When I do train for a marathon it will be the Rock and Roll marathon which is a cool concept. At every mile marker there is a band playing, I think that would be a cool thing.
5. I have a four-leaf clover tattoo in honor of my Irish roots. FALSE
I wanted one for many years but was too chicken due to the pain aspect. After infertility/dildo cams/injections/hsg etc, I think a tattoo would be a freakin walk in the park.
6. While traveling thru Amsterdam, I visited the red light district and watched a sex show. TRUE
I was traveling through Europe with a group of strangers who later became really good friends (Contiki). Our planned evening event for Amsterdam was the Red Light district so 10 of us headed off to the recommended "classy" sex show. It was actually really cool and I'm glad I went and watched it.
Ok - Hope everyone has a most excellent week!
