    Hmmmmmm.........let's see.............

    I've had op-ed commentaries published in the Los Angeles Times, the Portland Oregonian, what used to be the San Diego Union, and the Eugene Register-Guard as well as several smaller West Coast newspapers. I've also written for McCall's, Newsweek, and Catholic Digest.

    I am bilingual (Spanish/English). Don't hold a candle to Roy though.

    My grandmother was a nursing student during World War I. Although she was forced to quit when she married my grandfather, she inspired in me a love for the healing arts, and she gave me my first anatomy and physiology book when I was only four years old. It was one of the very first books I learned to read. Forty-odd years later, I still have it.

    A friend played classical guitar for our simple wedding, 31 yr ago (Aug. 31!). I walked up the aisle of the small country church to the gentle, melodic strains of Gymnopedie, by Erik Satie.
    Today my 17yo walked into the room and began picking out a song on the piano: Gymnopedie! He says it was an earworm for him, as he'd been hearing it in some of his gaming, and he HAD to pick it out on the piano! I told him about it's being a piece done in our wedding. I thought the whole thing was very cool.

    I sing: jazz, blues, bluegrass, gospel . . . singing is fun. Guess I'm a ham.

    The langauge thing isn't all that amazing - I was lucky to have three mother tongues Right place, right family, right time, no?

    Here's a weird fact:

    I used to be able to roll a quarter down my tummy - flip it over and flip it over again.... kinda like a slinky - using just my abs.

    Ofcourse, this was when I used to practice Shotokan and Goju-ryu karate... and before I put on about 15 lbs :selfbonk:

    My parents didn't let me watch TV when I was frowing up - I got to watch an hours worth of taped cartoons every Sunday. My parents kicked me out everyday to go out and play - or I could stay and read books.

    Till this day, I don't watch TV as much - I prefer to read books

    My parents tell me I was talking decent sentences by the time I was a year old and at 15 months, I was confidently negotiating staircases on two legs - dragging a pillow and my blanky around.

    The day I was born, my hometown recieved massive unseasonal rainfall and eventually flooded - the highest recorded rainfall in 20 years. Everyone from the extended family who had come to see my Mother and the newborn were stuck for the next three days, cramped in our little house as they waited for the waters to receed.

    Till this day, my friends blame me whenever there is unseasonal or inclement weather :chuckle

    Another weird fact:

    I can completely twist my tongue around on it's long axis. No, not just make a "U", roll-n-twist it around on it's axis. I can't wiggle my ears, but I can do the one-raised-eyebrow ala Johnny Bravo

    I took about 7 years of piano lessons and still chopsticks is my best tune. But I still have a secret notion that I am talented in some way musically that I truly believe- all evidence to the contrary. I once thought I might be able to sing but everyone who listens says it sounds like a howling banshee.

    Now I do all my singing alone in the car or shower, and I sound WONDERFUL.
