Okay, I am game for the new metatag game via Susan Getgood, who asks me to share 5 things you don’t know about me. Read on, but be aware that at the end, I really want to know more about you.
1.) I am a musician. I sing and play the violin, but I sing better than I play. I sing everything from Opera (see the picture of me in La Boheme with the San Antonio Lyric Opera), in which I am trained, to pop music. When I was in D.C. I played in a band called “Drops of Jupiter.” Most recently I appeared on a children’s album by Owen Duggan called The Elephant Never Forgets, which was reviewed as recommend by children’s music blogger at Zooglobble. You can hear me sing backup on “If I had a horse” and “Highland Lullaby”
2.) I almost went into journalism, but didn’t. All my old friends from the Broadside (student newspaper at GMU)went on to be journalists, with only one recently joining me as a blogger. She is a mommy blogger for a local paper in Tennessee. She still likes to call me a flack from time to time, just to keep perspective.
3.) I am very tall, almost six feet tall (as you can see in the La Boheme picture)
4.) I got very good grades in school, but almost all of my teachers said I talked too much. Actually, you probably could have guessed that.
5.) I am married to a rocket scientist. Well, actually that is oversimplifying it a little bit, he is way smarter than a rocket scientist. It keeps me very humble.
Here is the part where I am supposed to tag my blogger friends, and I will do my bit, but what I would really like to do is tag my readership, what is the one thing about you that most people would be surprised to find out?
