Eight Random Things

What everyone is waiting for....a list about ME!!!! Me, me!

~ I am a Banana Slug.

~ I have Hughes Syndrome.

~ I spin and knit, I make less than traditional things with the yarn, like mandolin straps and cell phone covers.

~ I have seen Los Lobos eighteen times.

~ I travel everywhere with a headlamp.

~ My first official date with my husband was to see "Raiders of the Lost Ark", in the theatre, first run.

~ I have a small but growing collection of kitsch and not so kitsch Blessed Virgin Mary stuff.

~ My dream job used to be being in the diplomatic corps, now it is working for the Alaska Department of transportation in avalanche control. You get to shoot Howitzers.

Thank you to Susan and Ruthie for tagging me. I have no one to tag as my on-line life is limited (sigh). If anyone wants to be tagged, let me know!

Hi Trixie,
Interesting stuff, in only 8 random facts. It's neat to know you're 'less than traditional' in many ways!

Shooting a Howitzer? I'd really like to see a picture of that!

You are really untraditional, Trixie. I enjoyed this and learning about Hughes Syndrome. I am sure you are taking care of it!

You'd love to shoot a howitzer? HA! I think you'd enjoy my line of work - learning in law enforcement, weapons, SWAT. Odd but interesting, at least.

Wow. I hadn't heard of Hughes syndrome. Sounds did you get diagnosed?
I love all of your random facts...maybe because I adore people who are untraditional!
Shooting Howitzers? Let's go, babe!
