tagged by a PIRATE!!!!

I am compelled to answer, lest I be forced to eat maggoty hard tack. Or something.

1. Three things that scare me:
-that I won't be able to live in the country and work with kids and horses because I'll be crippled by either back pain or mental illness
-that Jethro will fall asleep while driving home and get killed
-that someone will take my kids from me, or harm them

2. Three people that make me laugh
-the boy
-the girl

3. Three things I hate the most
-boring music

4. Three things I don't understand
-bus schedules
-how banks work
-underground parking garages

5. Three things I'm doing right now
-eating a grape tomato
-trying to ignore my son belching in my ear
-making typing mistakes

6. Three things I want to do before I die
-sell thousands and hundreds of thousands of copies of my amazing novels that will rock the world
-have grandchildren
-get to play rock star for real - just once

7. Three things I can do
-six chords: G D C A Am E (that's twice the amount needed for the average punk tune) (I can do this but not very well)
-teach a kid how to make a horse go

8. Three ways to describe my personality

9. Three things I can't do
-math in my head
-touch my toes
-take a wiz out the window of a moving vehicle

10. Three things I think you should listen to
-Sarah McCully: Virtue
-anything Kevin Breit has played on or written including his solo records, Sisters Euclid and Norah Jones's second album (go to the Poverty Playlist link in my sidebar!)
-Led Zeppelin: Presence...their least known album. Try it.

11. Three things you should never listen to
-Flaris Pilton
-Hilaryjessbrit Simpson-Spears
-the bad voice in your head that says "Heidi, you can't ride worth a crap, you shouldn't be teaching people how to do it, and besides, you're way too fat to fit into your chaps anymore, and also, you're full of it if you think you can make a living writing your stupid little stories, nobody but Stephen King makes a living at it and you are no Stephen King, also you're not very smart..." oh wait, that's not what your bad voice says, is it? Well don't listen anyways. Don't listen!!!!!!!!

12. Three things I'd like to learn
-how to sing
-to be somewhat organized
-what exactly Jethro does at work. Why exactly it takes a day to put a three minute song on one of those discs.

13. Three favourite foods
-sushi WHAT?!? Yeah, I like it. The concept of raw fish horrifies me but dammit I tried it and it's tasty!
-You know what, I have food issues. Even thinking about what I like is giving me a chest pain, because if I have to think about what I like it could lead to a grocery store and I just don't want to think about it...

14. Three beverages I drink regularly

15. Three shows I watched as a kid
-Dukes of Hazzard
-The Flinstones
-Gilligan's Island

I never listen to the vioces in my head. Silly. The Boy, The Girl, and Jethro make me laugh, too. When Jethro dropped us off last week, we were talking about Doy Ross and the 15 cent table...He cracks me up. I also HATE maggots. Made me quit a good job.I am also afraid of mental illness.AND, I can't touch my toes, do math in my
head, or take a whiz out of a moving car. MY GAWD!! We have so much in common.

You can sit with me up by the stage but only if you've got your lunch in one of those burlap bags cuz I'm totally environMENTAL.

"Hot's On For Nowhere" -- a great song off that Presence album. We listen to it a lot and it was even on the dinner playlist tonight.

I can't take a whiz out of a moving car either. Is that one of Jethro's specialties?

Sushi? Blecchhh! No way Jose! On the other hand, Pizza...mmmmm...
