What was I thinking?

Wednesday, May 03, 2006


Jenn tagged me to reveal some things that folks don't know about me. Hmmmm...I'm one of those types that self-discloses most of my life's events, so I'll see what I can come up with.

1. I was a "fashion model" when I was 5. I modeled flower girl dresses.

2. I went to Catholic school.

3. I am still terrified of nuns.

4. I ran away from home 3 times. When I was 9, 12, and 13.

5. I sank the game-winning shot in an intramural basketball game against an undefeated team when I was a junior in high school.

6. I hooked most of my senior year and still don't know how I graduated.

7. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 22.

8. I have been to 37 of the 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii. I've also been to Guam (US possession).

9. I am extremely proficient in Morse Code.

10. I spent a total of 24 years affiliated with military service. 16 years active, 8 years reserve. During the active duty time, I held a TOP SECRET security clearance.

11. I have a double crown on my head -- once thought to be a sign of distinction. I passed this
along to my son. Fortunately, he likes a spikey sort of hairdo because that's about all you can have if you have a double crown and short hair.

12. I shoplifted a lot when I was an adolescent -- mostly Twizzlers.

13. I was third in my graduating class in the Army, for technical training school.

14. I played semi-pro softball for two years.

15. I still occasionally smoke weed.

16. I think I might be getting to the point where I drink too much.

17. I once had an affair with a married woman.

18. My greatest attribute, in my opinion, is the gift of introspection. My greatest curse (aside from menopause) is the gift of introspection.

19. After I divorced my first husband, I joined the Mormon Church. I'm queer, I drink coffee every morning and wine every night, I smoked, I cuss, and sometimes don't take showers on Sunday. Guess there's no question as to my continued membership in the church, eh?

That should do it for now.

How about you, Scotty? Michelle? Michele? Rodger?

    Stuff most people don’t know about me:

    1. I made it through highschool a virgin. In fact… did not do the deed till I was married.
    2. I was raped by two different people.
    3. I was molested by a female babysitter at age 6. I still can’t look at taper candles quite the same.
    4. If I confessed my sins right now to my Mormon bishop, I would be excommunicated. This is one time when I WILL keep my mouth shut.
    5. I’ve been with 2 married men in the last month. And we didn’t just talk.
    6. I smoked weed last month. First time in 20 years. Good sh*t.
    7. I recently learned that Kahlua Especial is called “Especial” for a reason.
    8. I have 3 functioning kidneys.
    9. I wrote and published a book.
    10. I play the piano a little and am self taught.
    11. I went clubbing for the first time in February. It was a blast.
    12. I love Latinos … their culture… their language… soy boricua en mi corazon.
    13. I’ve had sex with girls too. Not recently though.
    14. I have taken pictures of my um… recent sex-capades. Hope it does not come back to haunt me.
    15. I stole my dad’s silver dollar collection and spent it on candy. Never confessed. I still feel bad about that.
    16. I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago – and since then my libido is in OVERDRIVE. (which you have probably figured out now by reading all the above sexual related content…. )
    17. I tried to run away from home once and my mom helped me pack my bags. It pissed me off so much I decided to stay just to spite her.
    18. I used to be an elf, and little bo-peep AND a train conductor. Santa Claus was my boss.
    19. I have my picture on a postcard. I was an angel in a nativity scene.
    20. The smile I have now cost me $10,000.
