RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME:
1. I was on "Entertainment Tonight" with Brian, in September, 1989. We were on our way into Golden Gate Park for a free Bob Weir/Rob Wasserman and Jefferson Airplane concert, which was also a canned food drive. We were dressed in our finest Deadhead gear as we were going to see the Dead that night as well. ET stopped to ask us some "man on the street" questions. We never gave it another thought till the following week when our phone started ringing off the hook with friends and family who saw it.
2. I used to answer the request line at WZOU radio in Boston. Except the position was called "Phone Research". Here's an industry secret: Requests rarely, if ever, get played, unless the song is in the regular rotation. Once in awhile the DJ would tell me he'd take the next call, just to put a caller on the air. The rest of the time, I just sat there w/ a list of all the songs in rotation and would put a mark next to each one that was requested, then turn it into the programming department who would decide what songs got played more and what ones were dropped.
3. I've seen "Paper Moon" so many times I can do huge chunks of dialogue by all the characters.
4. Co-Class Punk Rocker of Sandwich High School's Class of 1982. For the first time, they had to break with tradition of electing just one female and one male to this particular category of the Senior Superlatives list. Apparently the class was equally divided as to who should have the honor, me or my best friend Liz. In 1982, Liz & I shared the honor, along with our friend Doug Ewer.
5. Famous People I have met: John F. Kennedy, Jr., The Clash, Elvis Costello, Bob Weir, Jerry Garcia, "Red Green" (Steve Smith), Phil Donahue, James Coburn, Robert Urich, Wavy Gravy, Native American authors Mary Brave Bird and Ed McGaa, and I talked to Bill Mumy on the telephone. Saw Gene Rayburn (game show host in the 70's) in a gardening shop on Cape Cod, and saw Paul Kantner (of Jefferson Airplane) at the Safeway grocery store in the Richmond District, SF.
6. I have brewed beer. Brian supervised and helped me with heavy lifting, but I did the entire batch on my own. I brewed it for the "Queen of Beer" contest. Although it didn't win in Queen of Beer, we submitted it under both of our names for 2 other contests (in Indiana and Southern Cal) and won Certificates in both.
TAGGING: Fancy Schmancy, Drowsey Monkey, FenwaysPal (so that she'll update her blog), Bryde (if you feel up to it), Val, and Kris.
I'm running late tonight, JoJo, so I'll read your answers thoroughly tomorrow and then do my challenge. It's going to be tough though.ReplyDelete
No worries Val! :)ReplyDelete
Hey doll; just came off a babysitting session with the great nieces. I will do this when I get the chance, maybe tomorrow night. Thanks for the link.ReplyDelete
I will be home tomorrow and will do the ?'s on Thursday,they are awesomely fun!Oh and that's Ft. Bragg NC,SC only has Fort Sumter and I think that is more historical than functional.ReplyDelete
But when you typed it I knew you would never mean F.B. in this state,no one chooses to live there because they like it.
Once again, I'm reminded that I need to update my blog. UVM keeps me much more busy than UofT did.ReplyDelete
I don't see Vincent on that celebrity list?ReplyDelete
Some great locations! I'd maybe add New York City because, especially if he keeps playing until he's 90, you'd get to see Phil & Friends there more often than you would anywhere else, even San Francisco/Northern California!ReplyDelete
A new word enters my life: 'meme'! Other than it's meaning in French, that's a new one on me.ReplyDelete
Fancy & Bryde: Looking forward to reading your blogs when you guys do these.ReplyDelete
Kathleen - Yes, you DO need to update your blog! lol
Irenie - Hi! Welcome to my blog. Unfortunately, I've never met Vincent. :(
Zooma!! - Also welcome to my blog! NYC is way too frenetic for me. Although the east coast is where I grew up, besides having a cottage on the Cape, I wouldn't want to live there.
Diane - Don't you mean, "that's a new one on MEME"? lol I've no idea why they call it "Meme" but that's the word to describe these blog questions.
Wavy Gravy made a pass at me when I was 19! Mr Daisy is very impressed that you met (dramatic pause, genuflect)... The Clash!ReplyDelete
I am impressed you talked to Billy Mumy on the phone. Our local radio station used to play a clip from his famous Twilight Zone episode and I won a contest because (geek that I am) I could name the actor who said the line: Don't talk when the music's playin!! :D
Mumy also does a hilarious, dead-on impersonation of Alfred Hitchcock, who was, not surprisingly, a scary fella for a child to work with. He said even his BREATHING was scary!
Love the Glacier house, afraid to ask the price!
we look forward to LEAVING fort bragg.ReplyDelete
Ooohhh...those are some fancy places to live! I'll do that one ... I haven't done that one yet.ReplyDelete
Queen of Beer, lol. Sounds like a good name for a blog!
