One of my online friends assigned this task to each of her buddies, so here we go! Btw, it’s late and I just got home from work, so the fact that my blog can be prompted by someone else is truly helpful this time. Thanks, Wicked!
Why are you a ________? (Puppy, fairy, polar bear, car, or whatever you are – or maybe you are just yourself)
I’m a 7th because I fell in love with Beethoven’s 7th symphony. Since I’m totally convinced that he wrote it specifically for me, I’ve retitled it appropriately as sharons7th.
Who are the “significant others”/main characters who may receive mention in your blogs and what is their relationship to you?
Hubby is pretty obvious, he’s Hubby! He’s been the best thing that could have happened for me. We’ve been together for 29 years; married for 26. I’ve numbered my children #1, #2,#3, and #4 according to their birth order.
#1 and #4 are daughters, #2 and #3 are sons.
Bess is my long time best friend and kitteh. She’ll be 17 years this June. Piper is her nemesis, otherwise known as the Pip, Pippy or “the dog”.
Jenny is a bff. I consider her more of a sister from another mother.
Do you have any hobbies? Like what?
I enjoy reading, writing silly blogs, taking pictures, knitting (although I’m not a very complicated knitter)listening to music and sculpting with fimo clay. I don’t get to sculpt like I used to with clay, but I have found that I enjoy sculpting with candy and fondant to make awesome cupcakes.
I’m also in training for the newest Olympic event. Hopping in the Shower will surely be introduced as an Olympic sport soon, so I hop in the shower whenever I feel the need to train. Hopping in the shower is relaxing and I usually come out smelling better than I did when I went in. Funny how such an intense sport like hopping in the shower could have such a pleasant after workout aroma. WARNING – DO NOT TRY AT HOME! Hopping in the shower is dangerous and requires extensive training. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
What is a favorite song of yours?
That is both a very easy and very difficult question. Of course I love sharons7th, but there are so many others that I’m thankful for having heard that narrowing it down to just one is very difficult. I think Burst Generator by Chemical Brothers might be up there.
A favorite film?
I’m normally and love ’em and leave ’em kind of girl when it comes to movies. There are a few that I’d happily watch over and over. I think for a favorite film it might be “Family Stone”. Something about the dynamic of their family reminds me of my own. “Moulin Rouge” is a favorite, and of course all the Indiana Jones movies. I also like “Two Weeks Notice”.
What would be your dream job?
I used to say that when I grew up, I was going to be a wife and a mommy. I fulfilled that dream and have been very satisfied with my original dream job. If I wasn’t doing what I am now – which I LOVE – I might have gone into nutritional medicine. That kind of thing fascinates me and sticks in my head very easily.
How would you spend your dream day?
My dream day would include casual walking, nature, sunshine, music, water, Hubby and my kids and probably a camera to capture everything that made me happy. Seeing fluffy bunnies would help round it all out.
What would be your last meal?
An everlasting gobstopper. I’ll spit it out when *I’m* done and not one minute sooner.
What did you like to play when you were a kid?
Hmm… I liked going to the pool. I spent most of my summers in the community pool. I liked the game “Rebound” and “Bing, Bang, Boing”, and my sister and I played “Dream Date”. Our family was big on playing Monopoly marathons. I also read, wrote stories and drew illustrations and – wait for it- listened to a lot of music.
What do you do in your real life?
I am a Chorus Manager for a Children’s Chorus. What that means is I manage the paperwork, communications and operations for the chorus. I work closely with the Director to do whatever it is she needs to make the chorus the best experience for all involved that it could possibly be. We have 375 students between two different campuses. Student’s range in age from 6-18 years of age.
Are you political? Right? Left? Center?
Isn’t that a Suzanne Vega song… uh oh, I feel lyrics coming on.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
If I had a superpower, I think that it would be the ability to wiggle my nose and have my house clean and in order right away. I’d start a cleaning business and make bank by peeking in homes, wiggling my nose and closing the door on a job well done!
Optional question: Is there anything else you think I should know about you?
I wear a size 11 ladies shoe.
