my 10 random things… 2008 December 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — nova @ 2:45 pm

in order to fulfill the goal for helene’s bonus “thing” in Learn & Play @CML, here are 10 random things about me:

  1. i am a classically-trained pianist.
  2. i am ambidextrous. i eat with my left hand but do everything else with my right hand. but i can do everything with my left hand that i can do with the right, even writing. i’m mixed up, i think.
  3. these things freak me out: dolls, puppets, and clowns.
  4. my creative outlet is card-making. i have a whole studio devoted to making art, burning things and soldering.
  5. i ❤ dogs and have two of my own, along with 2 cats. i like to give my pets people names ’cause i think it’s funny. my pets are rudy, miss esther, lucy and beatrice.
  6. i want to be a yoga instructor someday.
  7. i started playing the banjo this past april and have done pretty well for a beginner. i’m in a band called The Hawaii 63 and sometimes i’ve been known to “sing” (if you can call it that) about my cat (esther) that hides a lot. oh, and she’s a kitty-ninja.
  8. i love to garden and i like to make outdoor sculptures and art from rusty metal things, especially old farm implements.
  9. yes… i know how to western square dance. it’s not a talent i’m especially fond of, but i might as well come clean about it now before the rumors start.
  10. i love movies that have ray harryhausen’s special effects. stop-motion animation rocks my world. i was raised on rankin-bass christmas specials! i also love godzilla movies.

there you go! all done!

    i still love you, even if you can square dance ;o) the song kitty ninja is a total hit. if my 14 year old thinks it is, you can be sure it is. rock on sister!

  3. I loved learning about your 10 random things…. I took voice lessons since I was 12, so I guess I’m classically trained vocalist. I also wanted you to know that I learned today that my husband had dinner with Harryhausen. If we are ever somewhere where you can meet, I’ll try to remember that random thing.

    Very cool 10 things, Joy! Even though I’ve never met you in person, I feel I’ve sort of gotten to know you via Twitter, and these ‘things’ add to the fun! An added bonus of Learn & Play, I guess…

  6. Cat Says:

    Wait . . . you don’t like puppets? Puppets? Seriously?

    I’m going to have to reconsider our friendship . . . honestly . . . no puppets?

    . . . wanders off, shaking head in bewilderment . . .
