Just for fun, how about sharing one thing about yourself that we probably don't know. Maybe you won a beauty pageant in high school. smhair Maybe you were picked up by the cops for throwing eggs at someone's car. shocked How about someone who's lived in 12 different countries? What interesting thing can you share?

Trying to narrow it down to one isn't that easy and there ARE things I don't care to tongue OK, here's a fun When I was young my parents and I drove like crazy to get away from the tsunami generated by the Alaska earthquake in 1964. We were camped on the beach on the Washington coast. We heard on a radio about the earthquake and that beaches were to be evacuated ASAP. Us kids went around telling other campers and the camp ranger. He didn't happen to believe us...too bad for him. When we got home and watched pictures on the news, there he was in his mobile home at the park, water up to his behind inside of his house. He was fine but the trailer house wasn't so lovely. Exciting times for a kid.

Anything fun, adventurous or scary you want to share?

I thought of telling you of my toilet fear, but I thought of something better.

Have you ever wondered how celebs really like all that extra attention the fans give them? They don't. Their own life is nice to have to themselves. I can assure you. I am related to Actress Paige Davis, Actor Patrick Page and NBA Player Doug Christy. I have been on Tv before, in Paige and Patrick's wedding. The reason why I like to be in the shadows is of all the attention I'm tired of when I'm spending time with family out and about. I've been grabbed before, just when I was on my way to a restroom in a restraunt getting asked a lot of questions of who I was, if I was a celeb so I flat out stated "I'm family, I'm here to have family time with my family just like you are" and walked off. I don't like to be the center of attention, I like to be left alone and not chased after. I'm tired of people interrupting our cherrished family time together, we only meet a couple times a year.

I'm a big lazy-butt. Native to Pennsylvania, but hate rural life!

I play lots of video games. I also like to write fiction, and I have a semi-secret obsession with the History channel and children's cartoons. :P

I play the piano and organ. When I was 17, I entered a Regional Music competition and won third place; out of 1,000 competitors. I was tickled when I got the news from my Dad and even more thrilled when I was awarded my trophy. I haven't played in a few years so I got a bit rusty but I am in the process of teaching my daughter how to play.

As a child I wanted to be a rock star, a mystery writer, and a ballerina all at once.
I guess I managed to do them all together with the job I have-elementary teacher. I get to sing some, dance at times, and I create suspense with my lessons. Also I have a captive audiance. :))

Okay here's one for ya: Scarred used to be a truck driver....long haul. Well, remember when they had that huge earthquake in San Fransisco? They showed pictures on the news of a interstate that had fallen on the adjacent freeway and there was one of the company I was working with's trucks crunched in the wreckage. That picture scared me to death because I turned down that very load because my boyfriend at time (second ex) grandmother passed away and we were to be at a funeral.
My second would be that I ran away from home when I was 15.  I was in love with this boy that my mom and dad refused to let me date.  So I stoled my ex bf car, which was parked at our home (he was selling it) and took off for the canadian border.  We were caught 30 miles up the road after a high speed chase with the cops.  I ended up spending 3 hours in jail and lost my favorite jeans out of it!  Talk about a wake up call!
