six pieces of trivia

My friend Vanessa (a.k.a. Ahuva Batya, her beautiful Jewish name) at The Anguished Corn has taken up blogging lately, and her nearly-daily posts are a new pleasure in my Internet world. She's tagged me on this little game, so I'll do my best, even though I'm not feeling very imaginative today ...

The rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Make sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

So ... here I go:

1) I like mayonnaise on my hot dogs.
2) The actor Bill Murray once gave me a $100 bill as a tip when I bartended at a party during college. I spent it at Macy's on a lacy bra and a pair of shoes.
3) I can whistle through my rolled-up tongue, but only on the inhale.
4) The first album I ever bought was Beauty and the Beat by The Go-Gos.
5) I started taking violin lessons in fifth grade, switched to cello in eighth grade, and played through the end of high school. If not for personality conflicts I had with my teacher, which left a bad taste in my mouth, I might have continued.
6) In high school, my friends and I used to play a game where we guessed what each of us would be doing in 10 years. The prediction for me was that I would be curator of an art gallery or museum in San Francisco.

I tag Sarah, Johanna and Carrie.

Mayo on your hotdog?????

I could totally see you as a museum curator.
And your mayo idea inspired one of mine on my blog...

Here I go:

1) I had the same orchestra instructor as Em in high school, and am lucky enough to say I'm still playing violin nowdays.

2) I love Polka music, and I even love Lawrence Welk!

3) I battle with social anxiety, and the ramifications of being 37 and single, with little hope for kids.

4) I had radiation and chemo for Hodgkins about 15 years ago.

5) I love saurkraut on my hotdogs (but not mayo...)

6) I feel lucky to have a good relationship with my sistaahhs.
