25 Random Things

( as seen on Facebook)

1) I am a first generation American. My mother was born in England and my father was born in Hungary.
2) I only met my grandmothers. My Nagymama, my father's mother, came to stay with us from Hungary when I was very little. All I remember is watching her cook with her 50 lb bag of flour. We visited my Grandmother on Islay when was I was little. I remember being jealous of her Boxer, drinking cokes from a bottle, the ruins and going in a row boat out on the sea.

I think the catering idea is a good one! Hopefully it all works out for you. Good list! What's a hotwalker?

Kona said...

Right on! Shows coming back around this summer.

Can't hardly wait to see Bobby (Weir) in cutoffs and a polo shirt belting out "going on a feeeelin!" again.

(confessed Bobby fan)

Bobby~ It is an interesting story. I may have to write about it again sometime.
Kate~ A hotwalker cools off the horses by walking them after they run.
Kona~ I am soooooo going to the Philly shows! WOOHOO You will find me in the Phil Zone~

Catering! Another potential business for me, as well. Although I think you would probably be better at it.

What concert are you thinking of attending this year?

Hey Lubie! Long time no see. I like Johnny Marr, which means I like Modest Mouse too.

Very interesting things especially number 8. Also, it was nice meeting you. Thanks.

Number 3 is very sad and I am very sorry to read that

I love my shoulder sun & tiger tattoo (maybe you'll put the pi symbol there). I have another tiger-lily with a snarling tiger head coming out of it tattooed on my hip but I NEVER get to show it off (and what's the point of having a full-colored tat if it's got to be hidden all of the time?).

The shoulder is nice because you can cover it for professional engagements and show it off when you go out clubbing.

RE: plastic plate in your face . . . they obviously did a good job in surgery because you're utterly beautiful.

So. . . with parents from England and Hungary . . . is that where you became acquainted with the Fae?

Tuesday~ I want to see Modest Mouse if they ever decide to go on tour this year! If not maybe Flogging Molly. I feel a blog entry coming from that.
SunTiger~I have a tattoo on my front left shoulder and one on my left leg above the ankle. I was thinking of getting it on my shoulder blade. I have always been drawn to anything magical. I figure it must be my heritage.

TheLubeFaerie ~ if science can now tell people that their great-grandmother went through a severe drought *by studying her great-grandchild's DNA* I'm certain your heritage has something to do with you being drawn to everything magickal.
