A Tag I Thought Fun:

Thank you, dear lady at My Gobhole:

1. Three things that scare me:
metal on skin
hair clogging a drain
fingerprints on cheese
(touching coinage)
(Even scarier: all of them mixed together in one happy clump)

2. Three people that make me laugh:
L. H. (just ask Elysium, he gets jealous)
Mr. Bean

3. Three things I hate the most:
metal on skin
hair clogging a drain
fingerprints on cheese
(OK, so they scare me AND I hate them)

4. Three things I don't understand:
tides (at the ocean or lake)
the movie Syriana
how to do a guitar solo

5. Three things I'm doing right now:
about to begin school with the kids
drinking decaf coffee
thinking really hard

6. Three things I want to do before I die:
love my husband more (how can it be possible!?)
cut an album (especially the way I want it)
ask me to sing out a "G" and I can do it
(I do, have other goals, but it only asks for three!)

7. Three things I can do:
make the best apple pie (with the best crust, mind you)
I can sing and play guitar (but not well together...yet)
make soap
(enjoy classic lit, write a song, transpose, teach a kid how to read, run ten miles in one pop)

8. Three ways to describe my personality:
"fierce" (I have been told)
"tenacious" (I have been told again)
sort of introverted

9. Three things I can't do:
sew myself out of a paper bag
watch a football game (really, I don't know how!)
be proper and prissy

10. Three things I think you should listen to:
Grant Lee Phillips (namely, Virginia Creeper)
my songs on my music site
my silly stories so I will feel better about myself

11. Three things you should never listen to:
your hormones telling you you are fat
the devil
a person maiming another person you love (without hearing the other side as well)

12. Three things I'd like to learn:
how to play piano
enough to get a degree in Thomas Hardy's works
to be a good mother

13. Three favorite foods:
kung pao chicken
anything raw (I can't eat it, but it is good to think about)
Cadbury Eggs

14. Three beverages I drink regularly:
red wine
coffee (decaf)

15. Three shows I watched as a kid:
Three's Company
You Can't Do That on Television
Life Goes On
(Those are random and the first things that came to my head)

I added a tag for you at the bottom of my post too! LOL

I loved listening to your music. You have a gorgeous voice! Is that you playing the guitar too?

Thank you!

No, it is not me playing guitar. That was pre-guitar playing days. That is the person I wish to emulate when I play guitar (please, Lord!---just a fourth of it!). My brother. He is amazing. My friend Sean plays on the songs called "Lullaby" and "In the Aftermath". I wrote all the songs except "My God is a Rock".

You are so kind!

for some reason, i never got back over to this post to see your response to the tag? i'm so sorry!! because this is really good stuff, and makes me think we have a lot in common. except the singing and the homeschooling. but i loved your response to three things i can't do. theres a lot more, but i laughed at that one because i can no way do the prissy thing. everytime i go to something at my son's school, i look around me, and i think to myelf

"i hate their hair" amongst other things...............and then i think "i'm the hottest mom here"...................???

I get what you are saying. A lot of moms are stuck in their era.

Prissy is not me at all. It drives my husband nuts because he is sort of proper and I sit at the dinner table indian style. Oh man, there is so much more that makes me non-prissy.
