Ten things you may or may not know about me...

...and do you even care??!!

1. What were you doing in the summer of 1988?
I was freewheeling and fancy free-I had graduated in June and was taking the summer off before I started college in the fall.

2. Do you watch sports?
Not on Tv-I avoid televised sports like the plague although I enjoy playing sports and watching them live.

3. When is the last time you watched “The Wizard of Oz?”
I haven’t watched it all the way through in years probably, but it was on last summer a few times and I turned it on and it played in the background while I did other things.

4. Do you enjoy watching older movies-movies made before 1960?
Absolutely-I love AMC and TCM as much as possible-most of the movies on my favorite lists are from the 50’s and 60’s. My friend Ginger probably cringes when I tell her I’ve discovered an old classic gem-she knows at one point I will force her to watch it or hound her until she does!

5. What is the last book you read?
I just got through with “The Darkest Evening of the Year” by Dean Koontz. I was a bit let down on this one, I generally like his stuff but this one seemed “phoned in”. My Dad started reading him from my recommendation and I took this one over to him on Saturday so I am curious to see if he liked it or not.

6. XM, AM or FM?
I always listen to FM-something that plays a mix of 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. I got an XM radio for Christmas but I have yet to subscribe to the service-I have it on my to do list, honestly!

7. Disney or Pixar?
I love a good classic Disney but I’m won over by the amazing things that Pixar produces. My Monsters, Inc., The Incredibles and Finding Nemo DVD’s are probably close to being worn out.

8. What is on your must see TV schedule?
I absolutely love “30 Rock”, “My Name is Earl”, “Prison Break” and “Pushing Daisies”. I try to watch reruns of “Frazier”, “Seinfeld” and “The Golden Girls” as much as possible-those never get old for me! I used to be that way with “Friends”, “Sex and The City” and “Will and Grace” but I have quit watching them.

9. Is there anyone in the room with you now?
My dachshund Petey, he will come in here from time to time to see if have a treat for him or to let me know he has to go outside. If I can tell he just wants a treat and I don’t give him one-he will walk out of the room with a “chuff” noise to let me know he isn’t happy with the results.

10. What did you have for dinner tonight?
Boy these quizzes get nosier and nosier huh? I had fried shrimp, coleslaw, hush puppies and French fries-can you hear my arteries hardening as we speak?

Very interesting! Cliff loves his XM radio. I like the Frasier reruns too.

I read Odd Thomas, by Koontz, and liked it. Then started two more of his books and found they depressed me, and the second "Odd" book was too much like the first.
