You'll see Amarillo, Gallup,New Mexico...
I was tagged ages ago by Mary Bishop and now everyone has done this meme except me.
8 Random things about PG.
1-I was extremely jealous of my friends who had cute, short middle names. In the 2nd grade I would sign my work Patti Ann, or I'd use Patti Jane sometimes as well.
2-I like playing the same cassette tape in my car for long periods of time. For about 3 weeks I have had Flying Burrito Brothers. The time before that was a best of Squeeze tape. Just don't let me listen to New Order for too long.
3-My first job I ever had was when I was 17 and a camp counselor for the YMCA. (I swear that and/or being a lifeguard is the best job for a teen.) I loved it, but those kids exhausted me. I started off with the 7,8,9 year olds. By the end of the summer I had the 11 and 12 year olds. They're a tough group but I got along with them well.
4-I almost went to Grad school in Las Cruces, NM. I was looking forward to living in the desert.
5-I have one birthmark and it's on my lower back.
6-I can do minor toilet repairs. Once at a gallery opening, I was in the ladies room and the toilet kept running, so I lifted the back lid off and placed the hook back on the handle. Is that gross I did that? I just kind of feel if there's something broken and I can fix it, why not make the world a little better.
7-I cannot program the vcr. I have no idea how to do it.
8-I have vague memories of going to an amusement park when I was little and it was fashioned after the Old West. Who thought this was a good idea to have people having shoot outs in the street around little kids. I can remember thinking, man that's loud and very annoying. Maybe I would enjoy it now, but as a 5 year old it's kind of freaky.
