Things I've done people on my friends list probably haven't: [Feb. 27th, 2005|12:27 pm]
Just me.
1) Worked at posh London department store Harrod's for a summer.
2) Had an article published in "Cool and Strange Music" magazine (and even got paid for it).
3) Visited both New Vrindaban, WV (Krsna's Palace of Gold) and the Maharishi University/Golden Dome in Fairfield, Iowa.
4) Had a solo art show (at a coffee shop) consisting only of "re-assigned" paint by numbers paintings I'd done.
5) been the subject of an Associated Press photo that got published across the country.
6) had sex on a golf course (city owned, not a country club/private one)
7) played clarinet in a punk polka band
8) moved cross-country 3 times in 8 years.
9) Turned 30 on Mardi Gras day* and threw a small unannounced sidewalk parade downtown to celebrate, complete with costumes, throws, and floats (shopping carts and other decorated small wheeled things).
10) Officiated a legally-binding wedding as a minister of the Universal Life Church.


(* like Easter, the date of Mardi gras moves around every year, though it's always a Tuesday. I've shared my birthday with Mardi Gras only once in my life thus far. Since the future dates online only show up until my 86th birthday and it's concievable I could live longer than that AND the holiday might fall on my birthday sometime after I turn 86, there may be another MG birthday in my future. But it seems pretty unlikely. )

No way! I play saxophone...I would love to be in a polka band. I am convinced polka is the next swing. Let me know if you start one ;)

I'd do it again if someone else organized it..mine was a one-of thing, but it was a lot of fun.

6 the one I've come closest too. Although it was a private one, it was one we just randomly stopped at during our drive back from the beach.

I've got number eight beaten. I moved cross country three times in three years. And Yet my man can't figure out why I wouldn't want to move again...
