1. How many scars do you have on your body? Where are they?
I have several scars, but you can't
see them unless I point them out, because they were all sewed up with
subcutaneous stitches so they wouldn't show. On the right of the tram,
you can see some on my foot, my hand, and my arms. Two spots on my face
don't tan because the dermatologist burned off sunspots. EWWWW this is
getting gross. And I haven't even mentioned the very special scar
almost every American woman gets when she has a baby. Okay, we're done
2. What is the last junk food you ate in such large quantity that you actually felt guilty afterwards?
Boy that bag of Vintner's cheddar
cheese popcorn went down smooth. Wish i felt more guilty about it.
Because I think I'll have another bag tonight.
3. What is the closest spot to your home where you go when you feel like you need an afternoon escape?
The beach -- three miiles away.
Lake Michigan has the power to refresh and restore me. Of course, just
getting into the Jeep to drive over there can make me feel better too.
4. Of those in your collection, what movie have you watched the most times?
Gladiator. DVD and VHS. Russell Crowe has the power to refresh and restore me. Am I repeating myself ?
5. Have you ever felt discriminated against? What about you do you believe led to the discrimination?
Let's see I couldn't play little
league baseball when I was growing up because I was a girl. I couldn't
play intercollegiate sports in college because I was a girl. Or be a
field goal kicker. I couldn't go to Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, etc.,
because I was a girl. I couldn't go to any of the military academies
because I was a girl. I couldn't buy a house first time around without
a male co-signer [who had a lower income actually] because I was a
girl. I was turned down as a renter once because I was a single parent
with children.I wasn't hired
for a very high paying job once because I was a single parent with
kids. I was denied reimbursement for childcare when I travelled at one
place I worked because the men didn't claim childcare costs. Let's see
they were all married or didn't have custody of their kids or made
enough to have a live in housekeeper. How much time do you have, this
list could get ugly.
