Day 9 - Something Witty

Have been racking my brain to think of something witty to say today...since I haven't said anything witty yet, I assume you have figured out that this has been a fruitless task for me.

Maybe I will just tell you something about myself...

7 Random Facts About Me:

1. I was accepted into Up With People right after high school. I was there for officially 2 days before feeling like I had not been told the truth of what my experience would be.

2. I have had more than 50 jobs in 15 years. One of my least favorite jobs? Snow shoveling.

3. I made my first move from California to Colorado when I was 3 weeks old.

4. I once drank three sailors under the table.

5. I name all my cars - so far there has been MacBeth (jinxed myself with that one, that car had a horrible death), Shrew Tempest and Rizzo.

6. I played the oboe in Jr High and High School.

7. One of my favorite songs is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen - I love to sing at the top of my lungs to it. Google the Muppet's version - it is super cute. (photo link)

Hope you have a wittier day!


  1. 50 jobs, WOW! I can't touch you in that department, but I bet you never stayed at any of those jobs for less time than my all time record low of 2 hours! It was a telemarketing job in college. I needed the money and I didn't have another job, but I just couldn't do it, so I walked out after two hours.

  2. Hi Heather,

    Very cute topic. I remember Up With People! You meet 'em wherever you go...

    I've had a lot of jobs myself. Maybe not 50, but at least 40, counting all the way back to babysitting when I was a teenager.

    Up, up with people; they're the best kind of folks we know! Thanks a lot; now that ditty will be stuck in my head:)

  3. P.S. I forgot, I love Bohemian Rhapsody, too!

    He's just a poor boy from a poor family....


  4. I name my cars too. I have had Chester, Ollie, and 'my brotha from anotha motha'. The last one was a car that was given to me from a friend's mom. :-)
