Subject: Any Qz about Q? Ask away!

Written By: snozberries on 12/07/07 at 11:56 pm


Hey all...

I signed up in 05 but didn't become active until recently. I was hiding in the arcade trying to steal Jason's high scores.
I live in Santa Barbara and as you can tell by my 911 thread I work as a police dispatch.
I just turned 40.
Watch way too much TV
Drink way too much Mountain Dew.
Love my dog even tho her pic is no longer my avatar.
And sometimes I am way too wordy... but that's cuz I have no one else to talk to.
Ah well ask away!

my friends took me out to lunch Sushi, I wrote my christmas cards, and then I put up my TV. I logged on while waiting for my dinner to cook but that was done 20 minutes ago and I'm still on line!

Sounds great! Now I'm back online for the moment, checking my PM's and writing down addresses so I can mail out my Christmas cards this weekend! 8)

There are four...

Whoopi Goldberg but I would be totally intimidated by her
Oprah...cuz I want her to go Hi I'm Oprah, nice to meet you (I love how she introduces herself -as if people don't know her!)
Ellen cuz I want to dance with her
Rosie O'Donnell because say what you will about Rosie but I find her extremely entertaining. She embraces pop culture like I do so we could stay away from the politics and just talk about TV shows!

No I am an only child... my father is an only child... my mother has 5 sisters.  The sisters were in two groups... the first three each had 6 kids... of the last three one is gay, my mom had me, and the youngest only had one also.  Weird huh.


I have lived in California longer than I have lived anywhere else but I was born in Holland.
We moved to Maryland when I was 2 or 3 actually, my father was in the air force so he took us home for a couple months while he awaited his next orders.
My mom and lived in Riverside while my dad was in Viet Nam
When he returned we moved to Las Vegas, then Panama, Washington DC, back to Vegas, Salinas Ca, Stockton CA until I moved to Santa Barbara in 1996.

I am not very crafty but appreciate people who have this talent.  At one point the University (UCSB) had a picasso exhibit at their museum.  There was a pic. of one of the paintings on the web site. I was pretty bored working the graveyard shift so I recreated the image using markers, pens and whiteout... I was pretty proud of it but how sad is it that someone with absolutely no artistic talent can copy a Picasso and get it almost perfect?  ;D

I collect everything!  I have always been kind of a snob slob. When we lived in Panama my mom threatened to throw out my toys if I didn't clean up my room. I didn't so she threw away everything. As a result I have tried to get back everything I ever owned. I am a bit of a packrat.  Some of that is due to the trauma of losing my stuff as a kid but a lot of it is about the moving around so much. I never had a home so my stuff was my home. It's still that way.

I collect Action figures.. I love super heroes! Especially superman!
Barbies.
Any TV show memorabilia like dolls for TV shows, I have all the Charlie's Angels dolls but haven't picked up the van yet
Jem Dolls
Movie Posters
and my all time favorite thing to collect are 8x10s from my favorite shows/stars.  I have a Buffy the Vampire Layer Slayer wall, a Cagney & Lacey wall, photos from 3rd Watch, Any Day Now... I have a drawer full of photos I don't have room to display... that's why I want a big house... just so I can display my crap.

I love 80s music, Motown & Rap.  but I spend so much time watching TV I don't listen to music as much as I would like.... I love Janet Jackson, TLC and Eminem.  I wish I could have seen TLC in concert before Left Eye died.

Santa Barbara seems like such a beautiful place (from the pictures I've seen - I've never been West of Indiana.) although I understand it is a celebrity hang-out or at least very expensive/upscale.  I think that is where J-Lo was supposed to marry Ben Affleck when that all was happening, I imagine the town was pretty crazy then.

What is your favorite food?
Do you like wine?
Is Carly your only pet?

when I was twelve I went to lake havasu...I remember being amazed that the london bridge was there!

I remember my first trip to LA too... it was the first time I ever felt "home" in  city. I still get that feeling whenever I go there I feel like I should just pack up and move!

There are a lot of Celebs here....Oprah has a house here, Dennis Franz, Cheryl Ladd....so many people. Kelly LeBrock and Noah Wylie live in Santa Ynez about 3o minutes north) That's also where the Neverland Ranch (Michael Jackson's playground) is located. Sadly I never run into Celebs here....Director Taylor Hackford & his wife Helen Mirren also live in SB but of course I didn't meet them here I met them in LA!


I like to eat so I have few favorite foods. I love spaghetti, Red Lobster Fried Shrimp & lobster, chilli, the beans and rice my mother makes, steak.....mmmm I love steak cuz I'm a carnewhore!  ;D Yeah I said it!  About the only thing I don't eat is cheese, mushrooms and Avacadoes...

I don't drink.... I used to but I learned I had problem... it wasn't that I had a problem drinking... my problem was that I couldn't stop drinking  ;).  I joke about it but it has been hard.  Next week will be 11 years for me...but to answer your question I didn't really like wine. If I had to drink wine I'd do the pink stuff or the coolers.  and never EVER Beer!

Excuse me... Carly is my daughter  ;D.  Yeah I adopted her when she was one. She had a hard life before coming to live with me. She lived with a transient who was very mean to her but she is soooo sweet you'd never know it.  She lived with a friend of mine but kept running away. She suffers from separation anxiety and would go looking for people to be with. I had a pretty bad back injury in 1991 and was home for 5 months. About a month into it my friend had to get rid of Carly and they gave her to me because I was home 24/7.  We have been nearly inseparable since. I take everywhere I can. Whenever I go visit my parents in AZ Carly is in the backseat.  She hates it when I go to work or to LA but she knows I will always come back so she doesn't run away anymore. 

My parents each have a dog I posted pics of them on the pet photos thread.  I think of them as family too but they are not mine.

I have been on a boat a few times I don't get sea sick but I don't like being confined I like to know I move and get out and go places if I need to... probably comes from being cooped up in a dispatch center 10 hours a day with no break....tho at time I was on a boat I hadn't become a dispatcher yet  :-\\ hmmm.... why did I become a dispatcher? 

you want the short answer or the long one???

Growing up I watched a lot of tv.
I always gravitated to cop shows.
I spent my childhood thinking I wanted to be a cop when I grew up.
After high school I had pretty bad grades so I didn't go to college. I worked at Toys R Us
When I moved to Stockton I thought I would look into this law enforcement thing. I took class at Delta College and got my AA in Criminal Justice but realized that even though I was good at it I didn't want to be a cop.

Then one day I was watching GH.  It was like one of those AHA moments Oprah always talks about.
There was a camera man for the show who caught his reflection in some glass during a shot
It was like a lightbulb went on... I don't like cops I like cop shows... I don't wanna be a cop I wanna work in TV.

Fortunately my 1.8 GPA from high school didn't matter cuz I had a 3.9 in JR college so I got into UCSB.

I was much older than the students here though and putting myself through school. I had to find a job that was flexible with my school schedule. I thought why not put my AA to use.  So I got a job with a department and worked my way up to dispatching.

I like it even though its hard, frustrating and stressful but its not what I want to do forever.
I graduated in 2000- and thought I would work for a year or so to save money and move to LA to pursue my dream. 
Unfortunately in 2001 I was injured  at work and was out of work for 5 months.  I started getting caught up on my bills and stuff in 02.
Then in 03 my landlord sold my apt. and I had to move again. All the money I saved went to the move and I thought well I can start saving again but my new apt was 400 more a month.  70% of my paycheck was going to rent and car payments... I still had to pay everything else. Needless to say, I still haven't saved any money although i finally got a raise this year. I hope to get some money together soon so I can move on.

For the obvious question- the back injury was permanent enough so that I can't do camera work or dress sets...both very physical stuff that I really wanted to pursue.  I could write but  I feel like (although my scripts have been well received) I don't have enough ideas to sustain me in the industry.

I want a nice simple job on the set like Script girl or continuity. But those jobs will not pay me enough to live on my own in LA.  I refuse to share a place with anyone.

I tried to transfer to Beverly Hills PD cuz they pay a lot but failed out of the interview process by 2 lousy points. SUX...I think I was too honest in telling them I was hoping to work in the industry on my days off or maybe they didn't believe me when I said I have wanted to make LA home since I was 10 years old... Los Angelinos are so cynical they don't believe anyone but actors and directors would live there by choice.

TMI?

Honestly it was the one about the dog crap on the bike path.... there's something about the way she said "...and a child could come along and eat it!" She really believed that a kid would be dumb enough to see shhh sitting on a sidewalk and mistake it for chocolate or something....it was utterly ridiculous.

The other one was the one about the lady who wanted someone to come give oxygen to her dead cat. It wasn't like she came out and found the cat dead....the cat got caught between the bed frame and floor... It was squashed and stiff ( I guess they had been on vacation or something) anyway...the cat was beyond dead but the woman thought oxygen would help.

...yeah and the burger one...."Ma'am we're not gonna come out and enforce a cheeseburger!"

1. keep walking... I've lost 3 whole pounds since thanksgiving... not a lot but since I haven't changed my eating habits yet I feel good about.

2. eventually alter my eating habits but I'm not that committed to it cuz I love food....if I make small changes that will be a success for me

3. work less but save more.  I work a lot of OT because we were understaffed in 07. We will be fully staffed in 08 so I don't have to work any more 14 hour shifts. but I will also shop less so I can actually save money. I got very nice raise in may but saved nothing!

I'm actually surprised- its the first question people ask me....

I was born Tamarra Quintana ________ and went by my first name (Tamarra) through high school. I have always hated my name- and even more I hated that jokes people made about my name.  I'd hear the Annie song Tomorrow everyday or the Mr Rogers song "Tomorrow, tomorrow we'll start the day tomorrow with a song or two"  Only once did a  person make a joke that actually made me laugh

by the time I was in high school I got pretty defensive about it. I would actually hang up on customers if they made a joke or laughed at my name. I talked with my mom and she said why don't you go by your initials then... it made sense cuz I always wrote Tamarra Q. ___________ on everything... I liked having a Q in my name

I started going by TQ then decided at some point when someone said you have to use your name not initials so I started using Tq...and convinced them it was my actual name... I had a friend who refused to call me Tq- he knew I liked the Q so he just called me Q

I sign all my emails Q so any friends who were paying attention just started calling me Q too.

I understand the thing with names and jokes.
I go by my middle name, because if you look at my whole name together, it sounds like a Southern assassin, or something.
I only go by my first name in medical and legal affairs.

Well, when it comes to the famous Assassins in American history, they all seem to be called by their full names.
Examples include:

OK, so here I am, Q.  I just explored the "Ask Me" board/forum for the first time today.  (Does that answer your question?!?)  ;)

So, what to ask...

Why on earth do you actually want to move to L.A.?  You like big city life that much?

So, what to ask...

Why on earth do you actually want to move to L.A.?  You like big city life that much?



Two reasons...

1. We moved around a lot when I was a kid so I never really got a sense of home.  The first time I was in LA i was 10-12  I felt whatever it is that people feel when they talk about home. I finally got it. I don't know if its because so many shows I watched were set there so it felt familiar to me but I don't think so cuz it was a strong deep connection I can't really explain. I feel it every time I go there now. I know that is where I have always been meant to live.

2.  Let's face it where is a tv addict the happiest? In the land where television is made. Its the only city in the world... except new york but not to the same extent, that I can go out almost everyday and get my TV fix without staying home and watching tv.  I can go to show tapings, take studio tours, visit the Museum of TV & Radio, go to the Margaret Herrick Library, Universal Studios/City Walk, tour beverly hills, hollywood, walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame, go to the wax museum... there is just so much to do that fascinates me.  Plus I have friends there and no friends left here so I'd actually interact with people (in the real world) again. 

Whew....

^^ Ah, so there is  a logical reason why people like to live in a bustling metropolis!  (Two reasons, in your case.  ;) )

I'm the type that would rather commune with timber wolves, mountain lions, ponderosa pines, and snow-graced mountains.  Too many people and chaotic human energies unsettle me.

I hope you move soon, following your heart's desire.  :)

I really do want to start writing again.  I have a couple of scripts floating round my head but everytime I sit down at the computer I end up here!  ::)

I also plan on working less... I work a lot of OT because someone has to work and everyone else in dispatch knows that if they say no I will work it whether I want to or not because someone has to... we are finally fully staffed so I can let the newbies take all the OT.

Other than that. . .  I really have no goals. I just want a washer and dryer of my own so If I have to go outside and build the shed myself (my landlord has been "working" on it for 3 years) I am going to get one this year!!!

Do you smoke?


Howard's first it's easier.... I don't smoke.  I used to have a cigarette now and then when I was drinking but only because I thought it was cool.... one fateful night in San Diego I had WAY too much alcohol and one cigarette... I was sitting in the back of pick up throwing up all the way home  *sitting in the bed of a pick up is illegal and I don't do that anymore  ;) *  anyway... just the thought of a cigarette makes me ill.

I was always pretty much anti-smoking anyway because I didn't like breathing in second hand smoke. My mother is a smoker and it annoys me. She seems to think that cracking a window makes the smoke go out but really smoke wafts in all directions.

Hmmm....

:-[ in high school I watched alot of those films like Animal House, Revenge of the Nerds & Heaven Help Us... so I became kind of a wise ass. I also went to Catholic school... in English class Sister Carol was talking about a book and said something like... "They all sang out"  I opened my mouth and spread my arms and let out a resounding "AAAAAHHHHHH" I thought people would join me but they just looked at me like I was nuts...

:-[ I got drunk at party sophomore year of high school and met this guy who, in my inebriated state looked (to me) like Michael Jackson...this was 84 so you know, Thriller was a big deal.  I was too drunk to remember my name and number so my friend gave it to him. He called me on Sunday night and even though the only thing I could remember about him was that he had a Jeri Curl and those aviator glasses MJ wore I told him all about me including where I went to school.  He showed up at my school on Monday- it was an all girls school so getting a visit from a guy was a big deal- everyone heard (my friends have big mouths) that some guy I met at a party was here to see me... When I saw him I realized that they are called beer goggles for a reason... not that I am gorgeous but this guy was the UGLIEST MO' FO on the planet... I mean that was embarassing... they wouldn't let me live it down.

:-[ My friend had a party and I was drinking... how many of my embarrassing moments start off with I was drunk  :-\\ - anyway it was Cinco De Mayo and my friend's birthday so her familia had a huge party to honor both events.  At some point I went to the restroom and returned to the dance floor dancing fool that I am.... I was jumping around, spinning, doing the robot, popping/locking the whole shabang.... anyway I was out there dancing up a storm for about 20 minutes and everyone was watching me... I thought 'Yeah! They like it...." finally my friend's aunt came up and pulled me off the dance floor. She told me to look behind me... yeah when I came out of the bathroom I brought the toilet seat cover I used out with me... it stuck to my ass and was just hanging out of my pants and it twirled everytime I did... all those people watching me were just standing there laughing at me....  :-\\

The secret is to not use your phone a friend and 50/50 until the end....  by 500K if you have both left and don't know the answer use 50/50 then phone a friend... it seems the friend always gives you the wrong answer so just select the answer he doesn't give.... by the way the friend gives the right answer in the early rounds but screws with you in the later ones....

by the way.. that took many hours - days in fact.  But I committed every answer I got wrong to memory so by the time I hit a million I had seen a lot of those questions before.

Plus I know a lot of useless trivia...

I guess it depends on what you mean by retro... I am definately nostalgic so I guess I am into retro. I never really thought about it tho...

I always thought if I won the Lottery I wouldn't build a dream house. I would buy a roller skating rink and renovate it.  The cafeteria would be the dining area and I would convert it to a diner from the 50s complete with juke box. 

But the arcade area would have all my favorite games from the 80s to today...including elevator action, paper boy, crazy taxi and a ton of shooting games... my pinball machines would be the ones they made for all my favorite tv shows.  The DJ booth would hold my cd collection plus my dvd collection because I would have a flat screen on the far wall.. . In addition to being able to skate in the rink I would also put up a basketball hoop so I could shoot hoops too.  The area where people put on skates would be my living room and the office would be the bedroom

not that I spend much time thinking about it...  ;D

since I am trying to recapture the best part of my youth does that make me retro?

Has your boyfriend/husband ever cheated on you?



that's funny Howard...  I never really mentioned it before but I haven't been on a date in over 10 years. 

I never really saw the point.  I knew very early on that I didn't ever want to get married... partially because I am super selfish and I just like to be alone that way everything goes the way I want it and I don't ever have to compromise.  ::)

The other thing is I am soooo independent. I watch Wife Swap and I am appalled to learn that in 2008 there are still woman who wait on their husbands hand and foot....omg I would kill the guy by the end of the first week.

having said that the longest relationship I have ever been in was when I was in high school... it lasted two years.  I was in a junior and he was in the Army.  We saw each other once a week and I was happy because there was no pressure I could care less what he was doing the other 6 days because  was not sleeping with him I just wanted someone to make out with and watch movies with... he was good for that...plus I could say my boyfriend and I did this... my BF said that.... so it was the prestige of having one but none of the pressure....

I used to joke that if I ever got married I would want to live in different locations...two houses close by or two apartments on different floors or in different buildings.

But really I just don't want to be married. I have no need for another person in my life.



Also when I was dating I was attracting some really weird and scary guys so deciding not to date was a good decision.

but that's another story for another time.

Well black is beautiful  ;D but um...lets see

Clothing: I wear a lot of greys - like sports grey I also like burgundy



A favorite food? 


Home- My mom's spaghetti.

Restaurant- Red lobster Fried shrimp


A favorite scent?
 

I always say money when I get this on those surveys.
The truth is that I really like those clean scent odor stuff...it smells like clean laundry.


A favorite comfort item (a special blanket or cherished teddy bear or whatever?) 

When I was about 7 we lived in Panama. I was really sick for about a week. No one knew what was wrong with me. All of my toys were thrown out because they were afraid they were contaminated. After I got better the first stuffed animal I got was a stuffed rabbit. I have a pic I'll pull out later. Anyway I still have it. I love it.


Do you want to get another pet someday?
 

I go back and forth on this. I caught myself glaring at a couple in Costco Friday because they were buying two dog beds. I was so jealous but the truth is I don't want another dog...I want Carly back so I don't think I'm ready yet. I found some video footage of her on my computer yesterday  :\'( 


Do you have a favorite song or a favorite type of music? 

I love 80s music but not the heavy metal hair band stuff. I would love to get Guitar Hero but fear I will hate most of the songs. I need to rent the game so I can see what they exactly offer.

oops... I went off on a tangent.

My favorite artists are TLC  :\'( , Janet Jackson and Eminem.



If you were independently wealthy and did not have to work, where would you live, where would you travel? 


My favorite question of the lot! I have a plan for winning the lotto. Big money $200+ million!  ;D

I would buy myself 2 houses. One in Santa Barbara because its beautiful and I want to continue living here and one in LA. Because I do a lot of LA stuff....plus if I had the money I would do even more LA stuff and it would be nice to have a place to flop rather than driving the 3 hours round trip on top of 5 or more hours in line and 2 hours at an event. 

Secondly, I would buy my parents a house because AZ is too far away. I don't want them living with me tho  ;) so I would put them in Camarillo which is inbetween LA and SB I think they would love it there tho.

Third - Bills, My bills, my parents bills and bills of my friends who are really in need. (though I wouldn't divulge how much I actually won because I wouldn't want them begging at my door.  ::) )

Fourth - I'm not a big traveler. You know me and TV... I don't want to go anywhere because I might miss something although I could hook up two TiVos to every tv in every room and maybe get all my shows recorded while I'm gone  ;)

we moved a lot when I was a kid and lived in different countries so I don't need to see other places. People would always visit us and we'd do the whole sightseeing thing so I have grownup hating sight seeing. I want to see Movie Sets and Sound Stages. I would totally go to Orlando because I want to do the whole Theme Park Tour there. I would stay for a couple of weeks and do a different theme park every other day- a day in between for rest and not go on the weekends. 

I would go to Vegas because "It's Vegas baby" and even though I've lived there twice I think it'd be nice to go when you can afford to gamble.  (If you hear me planning an W00T get together in Vegas then you know I'm loaded. If I advocate one that someone else is planning I'm just excited to see ya'll. )


Oh and FINALLY!!!

I would start a production company. I already have the logo picked out.

http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa235/snozberries44/qslogo.jpg

The funny thing is- I would hire my friend to be a figure head but we would make decisions together...with me getting final approval on projects and stuff but I would "hire" myself as a production assistant so that no one would know I was in charge...  ;D .  There's too much kiss ass going on in Hollywood. I could sort out the kiss asses and get rid of (through my proxy) the people not getting the job done and once I assembled what I thought was a loyal crew I would come clean.





Do you like video games?  If so want kind?


Love Video games! I wish the day was 48 hours long just so I can play more.

This is totally wrong but I love those first person shooter games. Especially Grand Theft Auto. When I have a bad day at work... the kind where the cops just get on my nerves I play GTA and go on a cop killing rampage!  ;D  The next day all my frustrations are gone and I am happy go lucky at work again!





I think that oughta keep ya busy for awhile.  ;D

hmmm that killed about 30 minutes!

When I was kid we lived in Washington DC there was a seafood rest. somewhere called Cheasapeke House. They had the best fried shrimo. To me Red Lobsters taste just like that. It brings back a lot of memories for me I haven't found any other fried shrimp that comes close.


Lets see fast food.  I hate cheese so know that none of my selections come with cheese and I am a picky eater so I special order a lot!

Burger King- I love their Whopper (no pickles onions or tomatoe) all that stuff gets in the way. I open the whopper and eat the lettuce. Then I add more ketchup b/c they never put enough. The whopper is only one of two places I will actually have mayo on the burger.  (Sometimes I have onion rings b/c I love fried onions but BK's rings always disappoint.)

Carl's Jr-  grilled chicken sandwich- plain...just chicken and bread please (I like to add my own BBQ sauce)!  or the $6 Burger (no pickles or onion) for that one I will open the burger and eat the tomato then the lettuce and then put on more ketchup  ;D ) I know it's an illness... no sides.  I was there the other day and saw they have new shakes mmmm but I was able to resist the shake! 


Chick-fil-a
- The original chicken sandwich and sometimes a side of chicken nuggets... I know... but since I don't eat their waffle fries I suppose it's okay!  ;D

McDonald's- my list is long because I love McD's... a hamburger (or a double cheeseburger no cheese) extra onions... I know but on the kids burger they dice the onions so they are digestable. I used to ask for a quarter pounder dressed with hamburger toppings (ie diced onions) but it always confused them so I just started ordering more burgers.  Extra ketchup. I am a Heinz girl but McD burgers requires McD's ketchup.

Sometimes I get nuggets but haven't had any in about 6 months. 

oh and apple pies. I think there's crack in McD's Apple pies because I order them EVERY FRIGGIN TIME I GO IN!!!!

and Fries of course McDs has the best fries on the planet I don't care if I find one in my car five weeks later and it still looks the same as the day I bought it I love me some Mickey D'z fries!!!

Wendy's Wendy's has pretty good fries too. In Holland we eat dip fries in Mayo. Its not something I do often... plus you need just the right kind of mayo. but there is something about Wendy's fries that scream for mayo...fortunately I don't eat there alot. I also love their Homestyle chicken sandwich. Plain...just chicken and bread and I eat it that way.

They have good chili too. I have never liked the square burger tho.


KFC Original recipe pls.  For chicken I have developed an unusual habit. I only like wings and legs. It seems to me that chickens have been injected so much with crap that the other pieces are always fatty but the legs and wings never disappoint.



Finally I have a french fry tip for those who love to salt their fries and dip them into ketchup. Instead of salting the fry salt the ketchup that way the salt stays on the fry  ;)

I was born in Holland, in Utrecht. My father was in the Air Force and stationed there in the late 60s.
We moved to the states when I was 3 or 4. I only spoke Dutch and my mom spoke some English but my father had immersed himself in Holland and spoke Dutch most of the time and always with her family so English was never spoken in the home.

When we came back to the states my father had a 3 week leave so we stayed with his "sister" really she was his aunt (long messed up family history there) they're only a year or two apart and were raised as siblings. Something more for a PM ya know... Needless to say I wasn't talking much but I have lots of pics of that time.

Anyway- My dad got his orders and we moved to Riverside CA.  and shortly we got there my dad got his orders for Viet Nam Leaving my limited English speaking mom with a Toddler in 1970's Cali woo hoo!

Would it surprise you to learn that I learned English from TV?  Electric Company was awesome for that! Plus Seasame Street and Romper Room.  And I have vivid memories of Cal Worthington (& his dog spot) commercials... funny what the mind holds.

I used to love to fly but developed a severe anxiety about it when I was 15 so I haven't been back to Holland since I was 14.

Oh in a sad twisted turn of events I was fluent in dutch until high school. Apparently my aptitude for languages only allows me to hold two languages at a time so when I had to take Spanish in high school I was having problems because I could only come up with the dutch words. Finally I let go of the dutch to take in the spanish. Now I speak some weird hybrid of both languages. I know enough of each to get by if someone speaks to me VEEEERRYYY SLOOOWWLY  ;D .

As I say Ik verstaand Netherlands mar ik praat neit so good.  Sorry Henk I actually never learned to read or write dutch. My mom hates that she let me lose the language the way I did.

Funny thing is, well for me anyway, is that what I thought was fluent dutch apparently wasn't  quite so fluent. See my maternal grandmother was from Suriname. And my maternal grandfather was from Holland. So my mother lived half her life in Holland and Half her life in Suriname because her parents had houses in both countries or something... I don't really know. I have pics of me in Suriname but I was an infant.... like 18 months.

Anyway- all these years I didn't know but my moms family speaks their own hybrid language a mix of Dutch and Surinamese (or what ever it is)... I work with a guy who is dutch and I said something to him in dutch one day and he said "What the hell language are you speaking?" and that's how I learned that I am quasi-trilingual well I guess quad lingual if you add English too.  ;D


I have become far too Americanized to feel Dutch but I am always proud to claim it when I can.

You probably speak (spoke) Surinamese Dutch as it is (was?) a Dutch colony.

yeah it was definately a hybrid of the two languages. its funny though because the entire family speaks it so I had no idea that what i was speaking was different than the Dutch Henk speaks. well most of it's the same really there are just some slang words my family picked up that was incorporated to my use of the language. Since I was never formally educated I just assumed the words I used were words every one knew.

If you dial 911 from a mobile phone does it still go to the local dispatch centre?

Yeah in the Santa Barbara depending on where you are when you call it will go to the Santa Barbara City Police, Santa Barbara County Sheriff, California Highway Patrol or the University Police at UCSB. 

Of course there is a margin of error if you happen to be close to the invisible line that divides jurisdiction-
but the call centers are set up so that once we figure out where you are calling from we can easily transfer you to the right agency.

Thanks.  It's something we were discussing last week at James's Wolf Cub meeting.  I wasn't sure how things worked here in the US

In the UK the 'area code' you dial to a mobile phone doesn't tell you the area of the country they live in - it tells you you are dialling a mobile phone.  When you dial the emergency services it doesn't go to your local area emergency operator necessarily so you need to know in great detail where you are located so they can pass your call on correctly.

wow that's scary.  I get calls from people who have no idea where they are and you want to help but its hard. Now the cell phones have GPS and we just installed a mapping system that plots their location on a map. It gets close but not spot on.

I think in smaller areas (more rural) the 911 calls route to not necessarily the nearest to your present location but to the nearest one where your phone service is located.  When I moved from eastern Ohio to western Ohio several years ago, and called 911 because of a car accident that happened behind me, it routed my call back to eastern ohio (some 200 miles away).  But then that was 5 years ago, so maybe it's different now.  It might be worth looking into your cell phone service provider for more information.

I did... I love it when shows depict a dispatcher. My all time faves...mostly because they are so hilarious are an episode of SVU "OMG I think it's him" I don't remember the actual episode I just remember the dispatcher rec'ing a call from a serial rapist killer and her reaction to it.

Also, my all-time fav is from a Chips episode titled 11-99  (11-99 is a code created by CHP it is the code officers use in the state of CA for Officer Down)

anyway Grossie has a new beeper on his belt that is supposed to alert the dispatch center if the officer is prone. Grossie falls chasing a stray dog, the beeper is activated and the dispatcher totally freaks out... it is HILARIOUS!!

I use it in training and tell the trainees..."Don't do this!"  ;D

I guess that is true about all occupations.  Rarely does Hollywood ever get it right, simply because they "jazz" it up to make it more... dramatic I guess.  ::)
I know the shows that I've seen librarians portrayed on almost always portray them being so snooty and with a stick up their backside.  Where in real life, no librarian I ever met was like that.  lol

I know every nurse I ever talked to said the show "ER" was so awful because it just made them all look imcompetant and horny.  ;D  Not saying the latter might not be entirely a bluff, but well yeah, you know what I mean.  ;D

hate to tell you this but I was in a library a couple weeks back (classes ya know) and I borrowed 6 books.
Unfortunately one of the books landed on my overloaded floor and precariously placed (unused) speaker stand was accidentally put onto of it. This speaker stand has a large nail on the bottom to keep it place on carpet.

Unfortunately the nail went through the cover first 5 pages of the book.  :-[ The first two pages of reading material didn't have a hole but a dent but there was a hole in the tille page and those mysterious blank pages books have that I am finally thankful for.

I need the book for a couple more days and put tape over the hole in the cover so it would tear any further -  mind you the spine had already been taped by the library to keep it intact.

I took the book and apologized for the damage and offered to pay for it. The guy helping me was very kind. The woman at the reference desk looked at the book and gave me a cold look. Then she asked who put tape on it- she rolled her eyes when I said I did. 

It was a lender from another branch so they have to find out if that branch wants me to pay. After the guy walked back to me she said very loudly..."And make sure you note it on her account"  IT WAS AN ACCIDENT FOR PETE'S SAKE! I could've just put the book in the bin and walked but I tried to do the right thing. What a bitch!  >:(

;D  OK, you found the ONE mean librarian.  We try to hide her at various libraries but SOMEONE always finds her.  ;) ;D

I wouldn't worry about it too much, you did do the right thing.  Stuff happens, ya know?  Even I, as a librarian, have had my share of...erm...accidents with books. 
AND, like you, it seemed to always be with books that came from other libraries.  It must be a curse, I'm thinking!

But the books got revenge, this massive pharmacy book fell off the top shelf and hit me in the head, I was seeing stars.  ;D

OK, sorry to hijack your thread to talk about librarians (I have my own thread about that!)

Since you and I are television addicts:

What are your favorite shows?  What shows can you not stand?  What shows/characters would you change, for instance, you really like a character from one series, but the writers for the series they are on, write TERRIBLE dialogue or scenes for them, how would you change it or put them on another series?  I hope that makes sense... lol

OK, so given that you like Mafia 3 something or other (sorry, can't remember) what other music do you like?

and for random question of the day, what size shoe do you wear?  Do you like wearing shoes at home or do you go barefoot as much as you can?

you can hijack my thread anytime you like. I should find your library thread since I've had a question about a short story that's been dogging me for years. btw you and Gis maybe I have found my connection to locating it! but that's for another time. . .


Favorite shows- I was going to say besides the obvious? But I feel the need to include them.

I am almost compulsive about the shows I watch and the list is long but I will clean it up a bit.

B&W shows- I like the standards like Andy Griffith and Lucy (tho I'm a little sick of Lucy since it's always on!)
My favs are Leave It to Beaver, Donna Reed, Dick Van Dyke & My Three Sons (It started in B&W) I miss when TV Land only showed old shows or when Nick @ Nite boasted an all B&W line up.

70's Mary Tyler Moore, Charlie's Angels (I can't explain it but it really impacted me growing up!), Vega$ (I wish this were on DVD).  I hated All in the Family growing up but I love it now.

80's - Facts of Life (to be fair it could've gone in 70s too), Fame, Kate & Allie

90's/00's Friends, Charmed, Alias, Medium (can't tell if it's canceled or coming back as a midseason replacement)

Current  Bones, Criminal Minds, Heroes, Life, Ugly Betty, Simpsons, King of the Hill, SVU, CI, Lost


Reality/Talk shows
- Oprah, the View, Amazing Race, Survivor, Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen, THE SOUP!!!!

I really scaled that list down...

The truth is I love dialogue; so well written shows capture my interest!

Cagney & Lacey
Roseanne  (Joss Whedon, Buffy & Amy Sherman, Gilmore Girls- both wrote for this show!)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Designing Women
Murphy Brown
Gilmore Girls
Veronica Mars
Third Watch
House


^these are, in my opinion, some of the best shows that have ever been produced.


My So-Called Life, John Doe, Boomtown, Related, The Inside & Women's Murder Club (oh and Veronica Mars) are shows that were canceled far too soon


SHOWS I CAN'T STAND:

I hate shows that depict black people in a negative light (read that as buffoonish) I would've loved Good Times but I hate JJ and never would have had that character. He added very little to the series IMO. 

Likewise, while Archie Bunker was 'lovable' I find George Jefferson intolerable.

I hate the new shows centered on people famous for nothing at all.  Simple Life would have been better if Paris and Nicole had to live in LA earning 1000 a month. Watching them trying to do with out Guuchi, Prada and limos and have to pay bills and cook would have been far more entertaining than watching them sabotage someone's business.

The Hills and the ....of Love shows are obnoxious.

Any talk show where people throw things or fight is awful.

All those shows that rec'd ratings this summer Japanese Game show, fall off the ball (whatever) and that new one on fox Hole in the wall...Ridiculous.

YEah I watched Queen Bees but more in a "roll your eyes" what is America coming to sort of way!



The mix-mash question is intriguing but requires some thought. 

Off the top of my head I thought I would like to do a little CSI shake up. Get all my favs of the various CSI shows on one and fire the boring ones. Read boring as... David Caruso, William Peterson and that NY Dude is that Gary Sinse?

I would also like to fire Anthony Lapaglia and Poppy Montgomery from Without a Trace- what is that accent she uses anyway? The actress is Aussie or english or something and the character is supposed to have a West Virginia (I think) accent...Its horrible.

I have no problem with the writing of either Bones or House but I wonder how Brennan would react to house and how House would react to Brennan?

I need to think about this one some more.


SHOES.

I wear an 81/2 wide. I always wear tennis shoes, sometimes walking/hiking boots. never flip flops or sandals.

I have a weird anti-foot thing. I don't want to see feet, touch feet or think about feet. The only time I touch my own is when I am in the shower or when I put on socks. I know it's weird.... Tam's current myspace photo totally creeps me out!  ;D

Having said that tho. I have noticed that whenever people wear flipflops they  ALWAYS wind up touching their feet or playing with their toes but rarely do they do this while wearing PROPER shoes.  Check it out next time you're sitting somewhere with someone who has on flipflops .

Oops I forgot the music question.


Three 6 Mafia was the group. 
I like rap music, if you look on my top friends of myspace you'll see Playboy 7 (he's a rapper) I've known him since he was a toddler and I was 5.  The music can be misogynistic but it doesn't bother me.  Whoopi Goldberg says she has no problem w/ people using the "n" word because they are not talking about her... for the record I hate that word and only tolerate it in my rap music but when rappers call women b's or hoes I know they aren't talking about me so I don't care.


My favs tho... the music I cannot be without is TLC, Janet Jackson, Eminem, Boyz to Men, Journey, Bob Segar  the Dreamgirls Soundtrack, and a random sampling of 80s music.

Let's see.

When I was a kid we moved a lot and I was a strange kind of bossy and shy so I had a difficult time making friends.

Fortunately I had lots of friends in my TV to keep me company.

As I got older I watched lots of cop shows and thought I wanted to be a cop.

I took classes at the Delta College in Stockton and got my AA in Criminal Justice but I knew my temperament wasn't suited for law enforcement. Plus I knew I didn't want to get shot.

Then I was watching General Hospital one day and saw a reflection of a camera man and it hit me right away (Oprah would call it my Aha moment)  I didn't want to be a cop I wanted to work on a cop show!!!!

So I applied to UCLA & UCSB and got into one... as much as I love UCSB I wish I'd applied to USC too (they have a TV program). Anyway I majored in film but needed to find a job while going to school. I had an AA in Crim. Justice and applied with a dept and got the job. I've worked for this dept for 11 years now. I started as a community service officer- and then  when a dispatch position opened up I got the job.


Before working here- I was stocked the shelves graveyard shift at a grocery store but I kept falling asleep in class.  ;D

Before that I worked with Americorps- we took at risk youth and got them into community service by taking them to convalescent homes.

Before that I worked about 20 years in retail.  Barnes & Noble, a small toy store in Stockton and Toys R US in Salinas Ca

My first job was at a movie theater. I made $3.35 an hour!  ;D


If I could do anything at all--- I would be retired-- and I'd spend my days tooling around LA going to TV show tapings and meeting celebs!

But if I couldn't afford to do that I would love to work for a show. Like I would love to be writer's assistant or script supervisor for a show I love.  Or Continuity I would absolutely love  being in charge of continuity on a set.  

But those jobs don't pay as well as this one and I wouldn't be able to afford the lifestyle I've become accustomed to (And I refuse to live with people!) so I continue to dispatch until I win the lotto.


As a little girl I wanted to be one of Charlie's Angels  ;D

Oh I was getting there!!!  ;D





So, Q....why are you so certifiably crazy? ....and what can be done about it?  ;D





I am an only child.

My parents worked....a lot...

so I was left to my own devices growing up.

I didn't have a lot of friends because most of the places I lived the friendships had already been pre-established.

Guess I've been crazy most of my life. That's what happens when a kid with an over active imagination is left alone for hours at a time.

Plus... when I was in 4th grade we lived in Wash DC.

That's where my dad is from. He had a niece (actually a cousin but whatever) she was 13 and I was 9. She lived in the ghetto with her mom, two brothers and her sister. they had two rooms... it was a lot like Good Times.

We lived on base in a four bedroom.  I had a bedroom and a playroom...yeah I was kind of spoiled but my parents worked hard and could afford to buy me stuff... 

Anyway- my father wanted to "save" his niece (cousin) and invited her to stay the summer with us. My father felt because he got out of the ghetto she could too but she had to work for it. She was to young to get it and instead hated me because I had stuff. My parents would leave the house before  8 am and by 9 am she was kicking my ass.

I used to lock myself in the downstairs bathroom and stay there from early morning until my father came home for lunch then I would lock myself in before he left until they came home at 6. She broke almost all my toys and broke my mom's favorite lamp and said I did it.  (My mom knew me well enough to know I always admit when I screw up) but I didn't tell them about the abuse so for two weeks I spent the better part of the day cramped in a half bath. 

Wouldn't that make you crazy too? 

and no I don't think there's a remedy for my particular mental illness.


Oh I finally told my folks what was up and they sent her back to the ghetto. She grew up to be a crack whore or something.. seriously I have little to no contact with that side of the family.  Her brothers were great though. One died of AIDs in the 80s and the other is raising her kids for her.

The only time I find myself wishing for a sib is when I have to deal with the whole parental obligation thing. It's great you took care of your mom but I'm not built that way. Plus they live 500 miles away and expect me to quit my job and move to AZ if something happens because I rent a small apt and they own a home.... I hate Arizona. I'd be less grumpy if they moved back to California.



The only sandwich I will eat at Subway is Tuna (on wheat) my favorite toppings for tuna are mayo, mayo & mayo  ;D  oh yeah and black pepper and Classic Lays potato chips.



I haven't seen Mad Men although I feel I need to. I like to keep some shows a mystery to me that way when a couple of seasons are avail on DVD I can devour them. That's what I did with House (now in season 5) I watched seasons 1 - 4 this summer.



I will post more questions in your thread, I promise, just as soon as I come up with some.



I wish they'd make Barbies for my favorite TV shows.  They have a series of I Love Lucy barbies.  I'd love to see a Buffy barbie. Some other company came out with an 11 inch barbie-like doll depicting Buffy but I want a Barbie Buff Doll.


Good questions. Pls ask more!  ;)

She's my favorite fashion designer and style icon and I just like her. And I love her doll because it's actually the first multi-ethnic Barbie that Mattell has made because Kimora herself is African-American, Japanese and Korean.  :)  Do you know where I can get this doll from?

Thanks!  ;D (It'll look great next to my MJ and Liz Taylor dolls! )

I didn't have a lot of friends because most of the places I lived the friendships had already been pre-established.

Guess I've been crazy most of my life. That's what happens when a kid with an over active imagination is left alone for hours at a time.

Plus... when I was in 4th grade we lived in Wash DC.

That's where my dad is from. He had a niece (actually a cousin but whatever) she was 13 and I was 9. She lived in the ghetto with her mom, two brothers and her sister. they had two rooms... it was a lot like Good Times.

We lived on base in a four bedroom.  I had a bedroom and a playroom...yeah I was kind of spoiled but my parents worked hard and could afford to buy me stuff... 

Anyway- my father wanted to "save" his niece (cousin) and invited her to stay the summer with us. My father felt because he got out of the ghetto she could too but she had to work for it. She was to young to get it and instead hated me because I had stuff. My parents would leave the house before  8 am and by 9 am she was kicking my ass.

I used to lock myself in the downstairs bathroom and stay there from early morning until my father came home for lunch then I would lock myself in before he left until they came home at 6. She broke almost all my toys and broke my mom's favorite lamp and said I did it.  (My mom knew me well enough to know I always admit when I screw up) but I didn't tell them about the abuse so for two weeks I spent the better part of the day cramped in a half bath. 

Wouldn't that make you crazy too? 

and no I don't think there's a remedy for my particular mental illness.


Oh I finally told my folks what was up and they sent her back to the ghetto. She grew up to be a crack whore or something.. seriously I have little to no contact with that side of the family.  Her brothers were great though. One died of AIDs in the 80s and the other is raising her kids for her. 






I didn't really expect an answer (as you're not really crazy)......but you have had an interesting life so far......and you're still around to tell the tale.  ;)

I have my father's sick, weird, twisted sense of humor... I have my mom's lack of patience...actually I am way more patient than my mom but that's not saying much  ;D

Some days I roll with it, but on the days I'm channeling mom I can feel the blood boil and I just walk out tired of the long lines....

I'm closer to my mom than my dad which is weird because I am more like him... she doesn't give a crap about music or TV....tho I did get her into Celebrity Apprentice and Amazing Race... sundays are fun!

We talk all the time. My dad isn't a big communicator so we mostly just sit in silence but its cool because he lets me watch whatever I want... my mom and I fight for the tv...we have to bargain...you take this hour then I take the next...  ;D


Favorite food....

Wow I love food so that hard for me.... If I have to make it then Spaghetti... I make kick ass spaghetti... but can't cook much else...
My mom makes this Indonesian Dish called Roti... its essentially a curry chicken, green beans and potatoes on a tortilla... LOVE IT....
Or Fried shrimp and lobster...cuz I love shellfish!

and of course steak, pork chops and steak....porter house if you want to know my favorite cut!  ;)

Now when you say getting jiggy with with your husband... does that mean you are.... like you know...making whoppee? Or dancing to old will smith songs?  ;D

How close are you with them? I would take one aside and say... while I appreciate your company- the old man and I are trying to have some he and me time...

with regards to the party.... order them a pizza, a big pizza...and make arrangements for delivery just before your friends arrive....perhaps they'll be so absorded with free pizza they won't show up...

or...put a padlock on the fence- then when they try to get your attention to let them ignore them... make sure the musics loud so can say you didn't see/hear them later....  ;)

How do you get into SO many celebrity events?  Do you belong to a club or something?

Ever been in the audience of a game show?  If you could be a contestant on a game show, which one would it be? (Can be one that isn't on the air anymore.)

okay so there's this organization in NY and LA that used to be called The Museum of Television and Radio....its now called the Paley Center for Media (named after the founder of CBS William S. Paley) 

Anyway- I have a membership to the one in Beverly Hills.... throughout the year they put on these events... sort of like inside the actor's studio- because its a panel discussion with actors, producers, writers, directors and creative teams behind the most celebrated shows on TV...

Every year they have an event called PaleyFest....and this is two weeks worth of shows. One event a night I buy the big package so I get to go to some after parties...

Its a whole thing some of us do every year. There's a facebook pic (several actually) of my friends and I in line these guys have become good friends and I met them at Paleyfest last year. 

Game show taping? No I haven't gone to one of those but I have been to a bunch of Sitcom tapings.

If I could be on any game show I would have wanted to be on Tic Tac Dough. Or Concentration with Alex Trebek.. I was good at those.

Also- last year Who Wants to Be A Millionaire was doing themed episodes... I would have loved to have been on a TV themed episode....

Funny story... about 4 years ago I tried out to be on a new game show.  The show aired on PAX. I made it to the final round...then they said we are going to give you two words and you have to name the celebrity... they said "Georgia" and "Brother"  I thought it was Jennifer Jason Leigh (cuz she was in a movie called Georgia... I had no idea what brother had to do with it... anyway it was Julia Roberts...Damn I love Julia Roberts... I should have gotten it... anyway.. they didn't want me as a contestant.  :\'(


YAY this is fun!!! Please ask more!

Yeah they came out with the original Julia doll back when the show was on the air but she wasn't dressed like a nurse.  she was wearing a gold lamie (I think its lamie I'm not all that fashionable) jumpsuit... gold and silver actually  ;D

I do have one MJ doll... now don't get mad at me...but I bought it at a swap meet in sometime between  1990-96 and I just had to have it cuz it was naked and (as I said at the time) anatomically correct.  I never got any clothes for it... but I don't know if I'm ready to part with it yet... its a fun memory for me.  ;) 

I still have to clean out my apartment tho... I am such a procrastinator... and when I do I will let you know if I find any other MJ stuff.

If I made a prince doll it would totally be from Purple Rain wearing this outfit

Yeah... I never got the Grease Dolls they came out with a couple years ago.  I really wanted those.


and I'm digging this doll

Did you know that Demi Moore collects dolls too?  I read somewhere that she bought a house just to display her dolls (don't know if that's true or just gossip.)

As for gameshows:  There used to be one called "Beat the geeks" that I wanted to go on, where you are pitted against other "experts" in various fields of trivial knowledge...you'd definately give the T.V. geek a run for his money.

What is it that you like about dolls?

If you could save enough money (or were fabulously rich) would you get those dolls that have have real diamonds/other gems on their clothes?

Is there such a thing as a Barbie Museum?  Wanna go sometime?  lol

No I didn't know that about Demi Moore... that's cool!

I do remember Beat the Geeks... I would love to go on that show. When I was working on my film degree at UCSB they offered a TV class for the first time. The professor was new (younger than me) I was pretty well know around the department because the Film Studies Chairperson liked me and told everyone about my vast knowledge of TV...

I took the class for fun and the prof would say something like daytime TV addressed social issues before many primetime shows..... isn't that right Tq? Or- Historically, TV would.... now correct me if I'm wrong Tq..... it was pretty funny.  Shockingly... I got an A in the class.


When I was sometime between the age of 3 and 5 I had a Mrs Beasley doll...like Jodie had from Family Affair. I carried her with me everywhere. I don't know what happened to her but I have since purchased another one because of the nostalgia behind it...don't really know how I got into collecting barbies... I sort of blame my mom...

You know I am a slob.... always have been- which is weird because I am also a germaphobe but I guess my own mess doesn't freak me out as much  ;D

anyway- when I was 8 or so... my mom told me if I didn't clean my room she was going to throw all my toys away... I should have believed her.... she threw everything away.... EVERYthing... she did it again when I was 11. That time she threw away all my barbies, my Charlies Angels dolls, my CA Van, my barbie vette....everything...

As I got older I was traumatized by these events...(although I never learned my lesson) and at the age of 18 I worked at Toys R Us.. I was working the barbie aisle and I was like.... I used to have this one and that one and that one too... plus they had a whole lot of new barbies...I was intrigued. I also fell in love with Jem at that time and decided to buy all the Jem dolls... I got them all but Roxy... My friend I drove all up northern Ca trying to find a stupid roxy... I eventually found one at a doll show a few years later. 

During this time I became obsessed with getting all the barbies I lost and I found a place in the bay area...its now the Doll Attic/Barbie Museum...the museum was founded in 2004 but the Doll Attic was basically a large store full of vintage Barbies for sale... I spent about $300 replacing my Charlie's Angels Doll... I never did get a CA Van... I really want that damn van....

I think next time I'm in the bay area I will check out the Doll Attic and see what they have...I haven't been there in about 15 years.
If you want to go....come on down to Cali...I'll go with ya!

As for buying a barbie with real diamonds- that doesn't really interest me.... owning Barbies is about as girlie as I get... Diamonds do nothing for me... now a barbie with a working TV in her gown? That excites me...

His Girl Friday is my favorite. I have to think about others. I'm more of a gregory peck fan.

I'll be busy Friday I'm going to a conference and the criminal minds season finale is that night. Sorry but shemar trumps jimmy

I'm more of a Sydney Poitier fan myself...but ... 

hmmm have you seen His Girl Friday? that's got Cary Grant...  Philadelphia Story? Bringing Up Baby? we may have talked about these before but I forget.

I don't think I've seen a George Brent film... I'm not too big on Clark

as for Jimmy... I have Shop Around the Corner ready for watching this weekend.. Cant think of too many others....the ones I can think of you've probably seen...  Rope, Mr Smith, Wonderful Life...


You know what! I'm not going to conform to your likes I'm going to try to get you to stretch your boundaries...  :D

My Favorite Classic films... B&W films are like

Pinky
Cabin in the Sky
Stormy Weather
the Thin Man Movies!
Strangers on a Train (its my favorite Hitchcock film)
Children's Hour
Paths of Glory


there's more but that's it for now...

Patch of Blue is my favorite Poitier film...but that's probably because, for some reason, I have yet to watch Lillies in the Field.
Raisin in the Sun!
Porgy and Bess
Defiant Ones, In the Heat of the Night and Guess who's coming to dinner... not in that order...



as for Dorothy Dandridge I found this site http://home.hiwaay.net/~oliver/dandridge.html

also this site that sells pics http://www.moviemarket.co.uk/Photos/Dorothy_Dandridge_P200448.html



not for nothing but Prince actually does absolutely nothing for me... so I'd have to say I find him most tolerable oh.... in I guess some of those pics with a five o'clock shadow when he's not wearing heels and ambiguous clothing...  :)

My back kills me regularly... I have a back injury from 2001 and it still bothers me when I stand or sit for too long or sleep the wrong way...


If I were to retire I would probably do exactly what I do on my days off... watch tv... uber post here and go to la to meet celebs!  ;D
I don't have a great desire to travel because we moved a lot when I was a kid so I like being at home with my stuff!!!

Fire stations have paramedics but also there are ambulance companies that have their own paramedics and EMTs... we house a fire engine at our station but I don't dispatch and we operate our own ambulance... with our own paramedic and students who are EMTs...
I could not do that job because
1) I hate needles
2) vomit makes me vomit
3) I don't like blood or bodily fluids...bad enough when I have to deal with my own I don't want anyone elses on me...  8-P
4) and they get paid crap... ours make about $14 an hour.. .not enough for that kind of job...

I'd rather be a cop... except for that pesky being in shape requirement...  ;D


That last one is a good question.... I already have... I gave up Mountain Dew about 4 months ago.. I am sad that I no longer drink it... but i need to jump start this getting my health in order...

I joke about it but the one thing I could not live without is the TV.. I am too depended on the company!  I live alone and prefer it that way but its the one thing that keeps me sane..

hmmm I could give up my car if I had too but considering the distance from Public transportation and the hours I work I hope I don't have to..

I've been homeless and don't ever want to do that again so I am not giving up my residence.. 

yeah.... just the mountain dew... I could give up vegetables- I like them and depend on them but I could do without them!  ;D

Do you have to mow your own lawn?






I have a yard but not much of a lawn. I had one once....sod...but it died before it ever grew high enough to be mowed.  I have trees on the other side of my fence....they drop leaves, small ones on the dirt... I like the way it looks so I leave it... its not like huge piles just a small layer of scattered leaves... then my landlord comes and rakes it up... and I have to look at the hard compacted dirt again  ::)

 
When Carly was alive he expanded the part of the yard for her to use...I should be better about weeding it...but I hate yard work so I don't that stuff grows and grows... sometimes he gets out there and tames it...sometimes he has his landscapers do it... I'm a horrible tenant.  ;D

Crazy Taxi
Time Crisis
Hot Pursuit (its a pinball game)
some movie/tv themed pinball games
and oh this game I played at Dave and Busters.... its called Police Emergency or 911 emergency...its a shooter game that has a metal pad- which makes the player on the screen mimic your actual movements!!!! LOVE THAT GAME!

and... well the truth is.. my woman cave- ideally would be a roller rink that I convert to a residence so it also has a roller skating area and a basketball hoop...  :)

Any celebrity that you haven't met yet that you'd LOVE to meet?

I was watching the David Letterman show and he had on Lauren Conrad (The Hills) as a guest.  She mentioned that her show had just done something at the Paley center, and I actually knew what she was talking about!  So you taught me stuff.  You should be proud.  lol
Do you want to babysit a cat (or two?)  Mine are driving me nuts tonight!




I would love to meet Oprah but I'd be so intimidate I wouldn't know what to say..

I've seen both Ellen and Whoopi but never met them.. that would be fun... I would love go to lunch with Rosie.. there were too many fans wanting time. I would love to talk her ear off about growing up a tv addict...

and I'd love to meet the Charlies Angels sans Farrah I suppose  :\'(    I have met Tanya Roberts... at a taping for That 70's Show and she was so sweet to me... and happy that I was an Angels fan but she is my second to least favorite Angel... my least favorite angel (for the record) is Shelly Hack.



glad I taught you something...sorry it was via Lauren Conrad tho  ;)


sorry I'm not much of a cat person...  besides you'd go nuts with out them and you know it!




please ask more questions!!!
(it seems to work for Tiffeny)

Hey Snoz!

Gosh, I keep forgetting that some people actually do like Oprah. I personally don't But I wouldn't be scared to talk to her. She's human. And she  can introduce me to Michael Jackson and Prince. I'll just plaster on my pageant smile and be chummy with her.  :)

Here's some questions:

--Who's your favorite person on food network?

--Which one would you love to cook with?

--Will you post more questions on my threads?

--What toppings do you like on your hot dog?

--What's your favorite flavor of milkshake.  :)

Thank you!

There's a food network??? Really???

just kidding I've heard of food network but I hate everything about cooking except for the eating....  ;D 

oddly enough.... I do love competition cooking shows... well I love Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef.... There is a new Top Chef...featuring Master Chef competing against one another on Bravo...Wed June 10 is the first episode!!! You should watch it... I will be starting a thread about it...

Hmmm who would I cook with? Well I still hate cooking... but there was a chef in competion on Top Chef... dang I forget her name it was the first or second year... I don't think she's on Food Network tho...but she seems like a lot of fun... Um...she works behind the scenes for Top Chef now... and also did some cooking for the movie No Reservations... if you watch the extras you'll see who I'm talking about...

yes I will post in your threads... I have been uberposting in another thread trying to improve the boards standings and sort of forgot to go back to other threads...

Hot dogs? Easy.... a little bit of mustard on both sides of the dog and then a ton of ketchup on top.... I can't stand it when they put mustard on one side and ketchup on the other.... and never, ever put the mustard on top...it ruins it...

I'm a simple girl I don't like a lot of flavors mixed together... when I eat I eat all of one thing then I go on to the next thing.. all my fries then my burger.... I always leave my favorite item as the last thing I eat.... and well if I have a mix of stuff... .like a fruit bowl... I will eat all of one fruit, then all of the next and the all of the next..... starting with my least favorite and ending with my fav...

one of the few things I mix... I like mashed potatoes & gravy with peas and corn...but that's because he frozen foods mashed taters and veggies need to be mixed...  ;D


Oddly I will also mix shakes... I love a Strawberry and Vanilla shake...because vanilla is too vanilla and stawberry is to strawberry.... but mixed it tastes perfect...


or give me an oreo cookie shake!

you ask great questions...



Tap dance? No- I can sort of fake it but I've never had any lessons or anything...

Baton? No.. I can do a basic twirl but nothing really spectacular.

As a kid I was a professional quitter... I quit judo, swimming and something else after the first class...don't know if I thought the work was too hard and not worth the effort... I sort of just wanted to jump right in and do without learning... or if it was all sort of boring so I didn't go back...

I learned to play the flute in 7th grade but i never practiced- I hated it  actually....

I did take drivers ed offered thru the boys catholic school one summer because after my first day driving with my dad i hit a lamp post...we decided it served us better if someone else taught me to drive  ;D

other than that... I don't really take lessons.. I'm rather impatient and i especially don't do well if there is a classroom full of people because once I've learned something I'm ready to take the next step... I don't have much tolerance for slow learners...and stupid questions frustrate the hell out of me... Especially if the instructor has just said "Do this with part A and then do this with part B"  and then some tool says... What should I do with A????  ::)



Favorite animal? I don't really have one... I mean I love dogs and think baby animals are generally cute but I don't really give animals much thought...except when I think.. that cow, chicken or pig was mighty tasty!  ;D



Childhood memory? We talked in some other thread about Dutch Christmas... Sinter Claus and Zwarte Pete (black Pete) I was terrified of Zwarte Pete as a kid and always wound up crying whenever I went to see Sinter Claus cuz I thought Zwarte Pete was going to kidnap, cook and eat me!

I also remember having terrifying nightmares about the troll doll from Trilogy of Terror in my dreams this guy

http://z.about.com/d/horror/1/0/U/n/trilogy_doll.jpg

used to chase me all over the apartment in Panama.....

and when we lived in vegas I used to have nightmares about the One Armed Man from the Fugitive chasing me.... guess I had lots of nightmares as a kid....still do actually...

favorite school memory? When I was a freshman my friends and I used to skip down the hallways singing Follow the Yellow Brick Road - we were kind of lame.....  we also used to sing Johnny B. Goode ala Back to the Future senior year


I was a horrible student...excelled in English... I managed to get thru four years of English without reading a book!  8)
but history, math and science always bored me... especially math and science... I once had a World History Teacher give me an F+ on a test because she thought it would lesson the sting of failing.  ;D

There were 86 people who graduated from my high school I was ranked...85 (1.8 GPA) but to be fair.. I didn't think I was going to college and I couldn't be bothered to work on stuff I didn't care about.... the person who was 86th was pregnant....it was a catholic school.  :)


What I learned about myself is when I take stuff I am interested in- criminal Justice for my AA (I had 3.8) and later Film Studies (3.5) I do well but I still suck at working on something I have no interest in...and I think its unfair that univerisites require specific classes... I have no use for Math above balancing a budget... and no use for science at all... that's why they have people who major in that so I don't have to deal with it......


I am taking a few classes this summer... Blacks in the MEdia... and Ethics.... Ethics is the only  class I actually need because the last time I tried to take it some 22 year old girl walked in and said...

                        so um. like. I'm gonna like be teaching philo 4 and like with philosophy like we pretty much just hang out at like
                        starbucks and stuff reading and like talking... and like yeah... that's where you can like find all the upper division
                        Philo majors....  ::)


yeah... I like... had to like...leave.... and like.... drop that class....you know.  ::)  so hopefully I fare better this time around...

I just reread your question and realized it was favorite childhood toy memory...

when I was a kid I wanted a shot gun... a toy one.... my grand parents were competative....even tho they were married to each other so my grandmother got me a cheapo plastic one and my grandfather got me this really cool "blue steel" metal one with real fake- pump action - and all...it was as close to being real as you could get without it actually firing bb's or something...



If you mean Disneyland? I like the fantasy aspect of it... I'm not the fan of the disney movies I used to be... Really only Bambi and Robin Hood... my favorites are the live action movies... put on something with Johhny Whitaker or Jodie Foster and I will watch it everytime...


I haven't been to Disneyland since 2000- I am due for a visit....especially since its so close... I've never been to Disney world but would love to go...



I don't have a particular Era of TV that I like best....tho TV was still magical before the first writer's strike back in  1988....

I don't like the way do TV now... what with splitting up the seasons so you get half in the fall and the rest in the summer.... I don't like that TV has been dumbed down for the masses.. I love Survivor, amazing race and other competition shows but airing something like Wipeout! Disgusts me.... Pushing Daisies was canceled so that America could laugh at people falling off super sized dodge balls....

I hate that good writing often gets overlooked because something is prettier.... or because the other show on the air doesn't require so much thinking...

And I HATE THAT JAY LENO IS TAKING OVER NBC... 5 hours of JAY LENO during prime time? That's 5 more shows that NBC is not picking up... because they won't stand behind their shows.....Sorry Jay but I hope you fail miserably!


one more to answer but work beckons....brb

When I was sometime between the age of 3 and 5 I had a Mrs Beasley doll...like Jodie had from Family Affair. I carried her with me everywhere. I don't know what happened to her but I have since purchased another one because of the nostalgia behind it...don't really know how I got into collecting barbies... I sort of blame my mom...


My maiden name is Beesley, and my sister had a Mrs. Beasley doll when she was growing up too.  Actually, my sister looked just LIKE a Mrs. Beasley doll when she was little - she wore the exact same glasses and had the blonde hair and round face and everything.  Anyway, my mom bought one about ten years ago, and it still sits proudly on her little rocking chair.   :)

I can't believe your mom threw all your toys away.  She didn't mess around.  My mom used to threaten to do that too, but I always cleaned my schitt up before she could follow through.  I can't imagine what I would have done.   :(

I've really enjoyed reading about you!  I love your roller rink idea!

What makes you laugh the hardest?

What are your biggest pet peeves?  (Non foot-related)

What makes you laugh the hardest?

Aw - I want to see pics of your sis!



celebs I detest.....


Michael Richards and Mel Gibson for the obvious reasons......


Clint Eastwood- because he squints, has a really odd delivery of his lines and well I just don't like his movies (except Million Dollar Baby- but that its because of Hilary Swank that I liked it....or even saw it!)


Tom Green- I think he's an idiot and he totally ruined the Charlie's Angels move (so did Bill Murray by playing Bosley as a buffon but I still like Bill Murray)


Clint Black- I didn't have an opinion of him one way or another but after watching Celeb Apprentice this past season i thought... what an ass!!!! Same goes for Gene Simmons from last season


I'm sure there are more but those are the ones that came to mind.


oh yeah- Yoko Ono cuz that bitch broke up the beatles....... just kidding!  ;D



what makes me laugh the hardest? I don't know I mean sometimes the strangest things crack me up....like that 5 year old- the jokes were so bad they were funny... I love non-sequiturs tho

really crazy stories- cops are the best story tellers.

and usually what makes me laugh really hard is when actors are trying to get through a scene and they crack up.... like Friends with the bagpipes.... they weren't acting they were reacting and it was great....the other one that gets me every time is that blooper from Will and Grace when grace is in the hospital and a nurse is supposed to draw blood.... Debra Messing couldn't keep a straight face because of the actresses voice...there was something about the way the girl said I couldn't pass her driving test because....it was hard that broke Debra up everytime and everytime I watch it I lose it tooo...




Pet peeves..... you may have noticed here on the boards... I'm intolerant of people who can't follow a simple thought... its like some one draws a one, a three and a five and expects you to get where they are but some people need to see the 2 and the 4 to make the leap.... that annoys me -  but even worse some people need 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5  and then you still have to help them get it....


I have a co worker who does the paperwork for new hires... We were talking about new hires and one of our student employees who handles the scheduling for new hires said to her
"Do you work on Monday"
"all day except from 12-1"
"okay- I come by at 2"
"for what?"

me.... "Um...to have you do the new hire paperwork we were just talking about...."  ::)


I don't know it just seems like sometimes the pieces of the puzzle are right there....do we really have to hold your hand and assemble it for you to get you to see the big picture....

the other day Howard posted to Danoot (about the service for her mom)
glad things went well; did they go as planned?

what?!? that question was just odd but be proud I didn't call attention to it!  until now...  ;D



oh and narrow mindedness... I hate that.. I mean I am pretty set in my ways but I feel like I do so to benefit most people and the others...the conservatives are not so open to broader ideas and the big picture...

and religious zealousy  (if that's a word) I'm all for quietly practicing your faith but I wish people would stop trying to convert me and I really hate people praying for me...  I just want people to wish me luck and think positively about me... 

okay I'll stop ranting now....


:)

thanks ash! That felt good!

I am a member of an organization called Paley Center for Media. They have on in Beverley Hills and in NYC.  Paleycenter.org

as a member I get advanced notice for all the events they are going to do and sometime can get tickets early.

And yes if you want to go to the next Desperate Housewives event its doable but... you'd have to fly here..... I don't know if they do desperate housewives in the UK but alot of tv shows have fan events there. I have a friend who flew there for a Supernatural Event.

Since you're a film buff, what's your take on theatrical animation?

Are you aware that some feature celebrity caricatures and pop culture referances from the era? (Honestly as an average joe, I'm only familiar with a few and gotten info from commentary and other boards)

One example would be "A Tale Of Two Kitties", which feature cats caricaturized as Abbot & Costello against Tweety or cartoons like "Autograph Hound" (Donald Duck) or Warner Bros. "Hollywood Steps Out".

I'm not the animation buff you are... my experience with theatrical animation goes back to when I was a kid going to see the "newest" disney movie... I didn't know how old those films were when I was kid.

Then the more recent influx of the Pixar films. I'm a fan of pixar flix and there are TONS of references in them! I probably catch about 90% of the references...

I have always been aware (and been a big fan of) self referential media.... in terms of animation. Looney tunes did it a lot...and even as a kid I had been widely exposed to old movies and stuff so I was able to identify a lot of the actors being characterized in the clips.

Later Animaniacs carried on the tradition quite nicely and those jokes came quick but I still caught most of them.

Do you like any casino games such as Blackjack, Poker, or Slot Machines?

Can you walk and chew bubble gum at the same time?  How about patting your head and rubbing your tummy and saying a tongue twister like "Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers" all at the same time?

When did you learn to tie your shoes? 

How tall are you?

Did you ever want brothers or sisters?

What is your favorite color?
Do you have a favorite painting or painter?

I love slot machines...especially the ones with built in mini games I can play those for hours....

I'm not so good at blackjack and poker....

once I was playing black jack and I threw $40 down for change.. I was sort of day dreaming and the dealer had set my chips in the betting area... she was about to deal and I said WAIT  and pulled out $35 bucks... she said next time you can't change your bet... I said I wasn't betting the whole thing I just wanted change....  she said okay and dealt me a black jack...that bitch... I would have had $100  >:(

no but I can sing Red Rubber Ball..... I prefer Neil Diamond's lesser known version... I wish it were avail on CD or as an MP3!


When did you learn to tie your shoes? 


I don't remember.... kindergarten or first grade probably....

in second grade I once wore a zip up jumpsuit and got my tummy skin stuck in the zipper...that hurt like a mother!!!! I was afraid of zippers for years afterwards!  ;D



How tall are you?


5'2" and 1/4... sometimes I fudge and say I'm 5'3"  :-
Did you ever want brothers or sisters?


as a kid not really but the older I get the more I wish there were someone else to carry the burden cuz I know I'm not cut out for caring for the 'rents when the time comes  :(


growing up What is your favorite color?


blue like that pretty royal blue from the 80s 



Do you have a favorite painting or painter?


I have to get back to you on this because a couple of years ago I was exposed to some art that I really really loved... and I went on and on about wanting works from two authors... but now I can't recall who they were... so I want to find my research... its rather embarassing since I was so enamored with their work!


thanks tho! These are really great questions!!!  :)

Okay I finally remembered one name....

Radcliffe Bailey. This guy takes old photos and uses them in his art work...its all black art...sorry I'm still opposed to the whole African-American thing...


http://www.arthurrogergallery.com/images/thumbnail/Radcliffe_Bailey_Uncured_Labor_1646_32.jpg

This is titled Uncured Labor...its a pic of a Tobacco field that has yet to be worked by slaves...its hard to tell, I think, but see the rail road tracks running thru his painting? that was an homage to the Under Ground railroad.... presumably...I think why there are no slaves in this particular picture.... anyway he did a whole series of works that have the railroad tracks in them... I would love one of those works....


now to recall the other artist...who is my favorite  :-[  her name is right on the tip of my tongue....  :(

Was Lorraine Toussant as nice as she appears?  I know, it's a bad habit to think that they are like the characters they play on t.v.  I might have to start watching "Saving Grace" now that I know she's on it.  Although in the commercials, she seems a bit of a ... um... aggressive woman... lol  Might have just been the episode though.

your boredom totally works in my favor!!!!!


I'm breaking this down into two posts because ....we need the post count  ;)  and I have a feeling my answer to your first question may be long  ;D

Lorraine Toussaint was very nice...very elegant and classy. I'd met her once before for an event about Any Day Now - that event was my first and one of my favorites... if you ask me to I'll tell you why  ;) 

and she was kind then too... Holly Hunter talked....... a lot........ and I think the cast was a little bored because she didn't let any of them really say much... but she, Holly, had so many wonderful things to say about everyone she works with... or she was blowing big ole smoke stacks up their ass...she's  great actress so its hard to tell  ;D

Lorraine and Nancy Miller have worked on three shows now apparently... I guess the third is an episode of the Closer but I can't tell... Imdb let me down on that one.  Oh no...I found it...the third was Threat Matrix.  anyway Lorraine said she would read the newspaper on camera if Nancy Miller wrote the article.  ;D 

Nancy calls Lorraine her lucky charm...2 shows out of three aint bad.... Lorraine came on Saving Grace in the second or third episode....

Grace is definitely an aggressive character...she's a loud mouth, sex crazed drunk who happens to be a really good cop.... the thing they pointed out at the event is prior to the shield this show would never make it on the air! Especially not with a woman...she's like Christine Cagney but amplified by 20!  :o

Its a bit in your face being on cable and all... they say shyt a lot... and some of the sex scenes would be raunchy for HBO  ;D but the Grace is a flawed character...she has had a lot of tragedy in her life... and lives with a lot of guilt. I don't want to reveal all the stuff grace has to deal with because the way it unfolds in the series is flawless and almost necessary....

I'll give you one....the show is set in Oklahoma and her sister died in the Oklahoma bombing... but what we eventually learn is that the sister was getting some paperwork or something... she was supposed to go the day before the bombings but Grace was off getting drunk....or having sex....or both.... instead of baby sitting like she promised so the sister has to go the next day instead....and dies...grace carries that guilt and about a hundred other burdens...

Its a good time to catch up because it season three takes things in a new direction....and one thing to remember is that like we all do in real life- grace evolves...the grace we see in season three would not do....not on the same level at least...the stuff that grace of season one did.

the best part of the show...is the relationship between Laura San Giacomo and Holly Hunter.... its like Nancy took that relationship between M.E. and Rene from ADN and somehow made it even stronger.... I can't explain it... these two Rhetta and Grace have been friends since kindergarten... and the actress capture it so realisitically... I wanna see a Rhetta and Grace ala Thelma and Lousie road trip ep!!!!

Then there's the who religious aspect....its that whole is there a god- do angels exist- do you believe in miracles.... but its not that in your face religious crap that I hate.... they deal with real questions and say there are no easy answers....and... hmmmm if god can choose someone like grace to help him improve the world...then maybe he isn't as judgmental as the fundamentalists make him out to be!  :)


Do your self a favor and rent the show....the seasons are short... 13 eps season one... and 14 eps season two... and as good as those seasons were season three started off even better!!!!


I have stepped down and put the podium away!  ;D


can you tell I love this show!  ::)


now didn't you ask me some more questions?

If you were to change your name, what would it be?




for one summer in 1977 I insisted every one call me Jill (as in Munroe)  :-

If you could go back and relive 3 things in your life, what would they be?




do I get to experience them as they were? do I get to change the events for a more suitable outcome? do I get to live them for a period of time or are we talking just one specific moment? soooo many options.....




If you could go back and change 3 things in your life, what would they be?




see what I get for not reading ahead????


okay Relive----

The first one that comes to mind is Carly... I would just love to go back and even if I could spend one day with her I would make it the best day ever....  If I could change things I would walk her more... and I would have taken her to a different vet  >:(

I went to a diana ross concert when I was in the 9th or 10th grade... I would love to have that moment back it was great....

and- well any of these paley events I would love to relive again.... especially Any Day Now, House was great....Gilmore Girls, Cagney & Lacey, American dreams and the buffy reunion...

oh just the definitive one... the Freaks and Geeks cast party I got invited too... I would like to redo that one but be more outgoing... It was my first real celebrity party deal and I was terribly shy... I know... not Q...but yeah I was!



Change---

I'd like to go back to June 2001 and not fall out of that chair...this back injury definitely derailed my life plan....

Also I wish I knew about the Paley center sooner...there are so many wonderful events I would have loved to attend!!!

and I'd probably like to go back to high school and just start all over... see if I can do things right the second time...but then again I might not be here with you guys and that would make me sad...

How old do you want to be when you pass on (sorry, I guess I'm feeling morbid tonight)?




I want to be about 287  ;D and healthy as a horse.... odd for someone in my job... but I fear death.. Its so final  :-\\  no one to remember after you've gone... all my stuff that I love...what's gonna happen to it? No one will love it the way It do...  :\'(

for a long time I've had a fear that I would die when I was 44 I can't explain it but its been really strong in me for so long... and now that that time is like 3 years a way I'm terrified... if I get to see 45 I will be sooooooo happpy!!!! I want to have a huge party for my 44th but I may have a bigger one for 45 if I live out the year....  :(




If you could design your gravestone, what would it look like?  (I love statues and stuff so naturally I'm a taphophile (go ahead and look it up)  lol




I don't want to be buried because the idea of rotting in the ground disturbs me.... and I have no one to visit my grave so that's just sad.....

but if I did want all that then I would want Buffy's Tombstone...  word for word.... with a Q on it at the top where they normally put a cross

You said you were trying to write movie or television scripts?  What are basic ideas that you are working on?



for me to actively be working on something I'd have to actually sit down and start writing! lol


but I have a tv movie floating around my head about an abused boy who won't speak... its busting to come out but I keep forcing it back in...

then I was sort of joking in another thread about rehashing Kate & Allie with Jenny & Emma but the more I think about it...the more I think this could be a really good idea....

my problem is I want to write something really original but all I can come up with is a rehash of old material!





What television star(s) male, female and/or cartoon  ;D  from the 70s would you like to meet in their prime?



Ohhh good question!!!!

Nancy McKeon! and the rest of the facts cast
the cast of Charlie's Angels....sans farrah I guess  :\'(  (Robert Urich would have been cool too!)
Lynne Moody..most people don't know her but she was on Soap and Lou Grant and a ton of tv movies
Val. Bertinelli
Ha Ha... no men apparently... but that's because women in TV have always been my favs!

The only cartoon characters I've ever wanted to meet are Jem & the Holograms.... I would love to write a live action version...hmmmmm





If you could have a dinner party with 10 famous people (living or dead) who would be on the guest list?  What food would you serve? 



this is an unfair question... sort of because there are two types of dinners I would want....

one would be just for fun! a couple of comedians, the creative minds behind two of my favorite shows and the cast of gilmore girls!!!

1. Rosie O'Donnell but only if she talks TV and childhood and not about politics
2. Ellen Degeneres
3. Chris Rock
4. Joss Whedon (Creator of Buffy, Angel, Firefly & Doll House)
5. Amy Sherman Palladino (Gilmore Girls creator writer)
6. Daniel Paladino (ditto)
7. Lauren Graham (lorelei gilmore....cuz lauren graham and Amy sherman are exactly like lorelei in real life)
8. Alexis Bledel (cuz Gilmore and Sisterhood)
9. Amber Tamblyn (cuz GH, Joan of Arcadia, and Sisterhood)
10. America Ferrera (cuz Ugly Betty and Sisterhood)


then there's the serious talk... the focus would be civil rights and all...  but because its me... I'd like the cast of any day now there to talk about the series versus the real deal.... so


1. Nancy Miller
2. Donzaleigh Abernathy (she played rene's mom is the daughter of a real life civil rights advocate Rev Ralph Abernathy)
3. Lorraine Toussaint
4. Annie Potts
5. Dr. King
6. Oprah
7. Whoopi
8. Maya Angelou
9. My great grandmother
10. Medgar Evers or maybe....  Sorry Patty i need 12 people... this will be like the last supper... Q and her 12 inspirerers  ;D
11. Sidney Poitier
12. Aaron McGruder....the creator of Boondocks! LOL... cuz watching him explain his dr King ep...to Dr king...now that would be a fascinating...

I totally knew you were going to do this!  :P


What is the most money you have spent on one single item?
  besides buying a car....because I made payments so that doesn't count. I spent $250 on a crew members jacket for my favorite show... Any Day Now... I never wear it tho because I'm afraid of damaging it!
oh and I dropped $1200 to attend Paley Fest this year!


How many CD's do you own? (you can guessitmate if need be)
I have about 500 cds...which is a bit ridiculous because I always listen to same 150 tracks out of 5000 on my mp3 player & ipod.


DVD's?
I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I said 1000.  I have about 700 films and a couple hundred TV shows.


If you could meet one person off of this board, who would it be & why?
  this is so unfair because I want to meet so many of you... Hopefully I get to cross two people of my list next month  ;)

But I really want to meet the people I've clicked with.... Cat, Tam, Stats, Ash, Sami, Jess, Reynolds, Bookmistress, ladybug, dag, gis... you know... all those people who made it to Philly and then some!




Are you left handed or right handed?
Right handed


What would you rather do...go camping in the woods or stay in a hotel room in a big city?
Hotel for sure and they better get good channels on the TV!



Name three places you would like to visit (It can be a city, country, state, island, etc...)
I want to go to the florida theme parks! other than that I spent too much time moving around as a kid so I hate traveling... the only other place I like to be besides home is LA!




If you were awarded 1 million dollars tomorrow, what would be the first thing you would buy?
Tax free? do I get to spend the whole million or only 500K? 
I would pay my bills.. that amounts to about 70K if you factor in student loans...
after that I need a new car
I want my parents to move from AZ to Cali so I would put a down payment on a condo for them
also get myself a condo in LA so I have some place to stay when I go to my TV events so I don't have to drive back and forth.

and I have a friend I owe a car... I've been telling her for a year that I'm going to buy her a car so I would do that.


I think I spent close to a million with that list.  ;)


Who is your role model now & who was it when you were a kid?  when I was a kid I looked up to TV characters... first it was Jill Munroe on Charlies Angels and then Christine Cagney on Cagney & Lacey.... I secretly wanted to be white and blonde...whoopi has a great routine about this in her first stand up show..... I thought I was the only one when I saw that....

now I don't really have a role model per se...I admire people who do what I wish to do but am too scared to try. I have a friend who graduated with me from UCSB and she's out there writing scripts and selling them and I admire that she had the guts to do what I keep talking about... and I admire Nancy Miller because she produces the kind of shows I would want to produce if I were doing it! That's why I was so stoked to meet her.... I love strong, independent women..... so Oprah  ;)

seriously....if you think about it there is no reason for oprah to succeed... she was born, as she says, Negro...in Mississippi... in 1955.... yet she rose above all of that and became one of the most famous, powerful, influencial women in the world...it seriously blows my mind.


What is your favorite cartoon series? as a kid I had no taste if it was on tv I would watch it no matter how much it sucked... I still do this today with some shows but not cartoons... I am very picky about my animated series....

I love Jem & the Holograms.
King of the Hill
Pepper Ann
Weekenders
As Told by Ginger
Danny Phantom

I watch these shows almost every time they are on....no matter how often I've seen the episodes.



Who is your favorite music artist from these decades: 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s
  you skipped the 40's & 50's  ;)
30's/40's - Billie Holiday
50's- Buddy Holly
60's - Supremes
70's - Bob Seger.... I also love Journey both 70's and 80's Journey but i have to reserve the 80s for my other favorite....
80's - Janet Jackson - I love Janet from 80's & 90's 
90's - No surprises here.... TLC hands down.... If someone made me choose between Janet and TLC I think I'd have to pick TLC but it would hurt!
00's- Eminem... forget how you feel about the person behind the artist....the man has a gift!



Have you ever met someone in real life off of the Internet?
  yes... in '08 the Paley Center was having three events as a package deal, The Riches, Moonlight and Bones.... I wanted to go to bones so bad but all those crazy moonlight fans bought out all the packages... I ended up joining the Moonlight fan site and posed as a moonlight fan to get someone to give up bones tickets they didn't plan to use  ;D I got my tickets and met a couple of the people from the boards I had been talking too....


Are you in love?  In lust?  I have only ever been in love with one person..... myself  ;)
seriously tho... I'm not wired that way... I just don't go for that whole I luuuvvv himmmm crap.... I love bull shyt love stories but real life romance bores the crap out of me.  I admire those of you who can do it tho.. I am not patient enough to devote my life to anyone but myself...... and no I've never been in lust either.....unless my encounter with Shemar Moore counts? that's about as close to feeling lustful as I have ever been  ;)



If you had to give up sex for one year in exchange for $5000 would you do it?
  obvioulsly, based on the answer above...yes without question.... now if you asked if I could give up tV.... nope... not even for a million bucks..... not unless it was broadcast tv and I could still get my fill from online and DVDs.


Describe your idea of the perfect mate. I had her... her name was carly  :\'(


Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I'd like to be in a house... don't care if I own it or rent it.. I'm just tired of living a cramped one room/studio apt. I want to live like an adult with a house, two bathrooms, a washer & dryer and a dishwasher... and I am tired of sharing a wall with a neighbor so it has to be a house... not an apt... 


What are your goals in life for the next 10 years? hopefully I will get off my ass and write one of the 5 scripts that are floating around my head... I don't have to write a good movie or TV show... I just want to write a popular one  ;D  it'd be nice to have both tho!

sorry forgot about the other part  ;D

Yeah its definitely interesting some of the time... mostly because people are really, really stupid!  >:(  and have no idea what constitutes an emergency.....

I always say "Your lack of planning is not my emergency!"

but its cool when you save a life.....sucks when you lose them tho... I've experienced both (the latter too many times  :\'(  )

sux too because during the fire- the sheriff recognized his deputies, officers in my department (because we helped with the evacuations and stuff), the agencies from the state that provided mutual aid....we brought in something like 300 additional police officers... and of course he thanked the fire fighters local and from all over who came to help.... but not once did he thank his dispatchers.... Those dispatchers worked their collective arses off... many of them have homes & family  in the burn area but couldn't leave to check on loved ones because they were too busy taking calls from the general public... some concerned about their properties, others angry they got evacuated, some out of area callers worried about their families....nosy nellies and of course the routine calls for service...report calls and stuff...

Always remember to thank dispatchers... they are truly the unsung heroes!

The school where Degrassi takes place does exist, been there before. I met the girl who plays Caitlin, twice. (One in a gym in the 80's, once on the street.) She's a cutie.

(I also liked the show back in the 80s)

Funny that you mention Lucy and Joey together with Caitlin, they were my 3 favorite characters on the show. I found Caitlin & Lucy both kinda cute.  I've also bumped into Snake (he's a tall guy, much over 6 feet tall) and I saw Arthur once as well.

When I met Stacy, she was kinda shy, didn't say much other than she knew I recognized her and said "hi"

Maybe Start a Degrassi thread. Hard to do a poll of fave character, too many characters to like.
I didn't like the twin red heads Erica and Heather, or Claude.

Having lived in Toronto a bit, I recognized many of the streets they used in the show (amazing how they camouflaged those igloos and 5 feet of snow on the ground..they shudda won some awards for that  :))

I get to AZ about once (maybe twice a year... ) usually I go around christmas time and occasionally I go in the spring. I never go in the summer.

The last time I was there was May 2008 oh wait... I did make it during christmas 08  (I missed christmas 07) but I only stayed three days...

I will let you know the next time I am there for longer than three days.  :)

I drive because I hate to fly. It takes about 7 hours.

you're going to ask me about getting off your ass and writing  ;D  that's like Stevie Wonder asking Ray Charles what color his suit is...  ;)


If you're serious about writing you just have to do it- early in the morning- late at night whenever you can steal a few moments for yourself....that means turning off Prince and MJ because they distract you, telling Dion to give you a couple hours space, and sitting quietly with your characters letting them speak to you.

It sucks that valuable hours you could spend writing have to spent in dialysis but hopefully you get well soon and start writing like a fiend...

Hi Snoz!

Thank you for the answer! (karma honey) And tha tjoke cracked me up. I have to use that! And thanks for the suggestion. I guess I will have to show Dion the door if I want to work. But I actually do concentrate better when I play Prince. He's the perfect background noise and I kind of zone out while I'm listening to him and can write pretty well. I have a fanfic story I've written with him and Michael (they are NOT a couple in the sroty, but feuding over a woman they both want) and when I play Prince, I write okay. I've had fans actually ask me if I know Prince and Michael, or if I AM one of them.  ;D

By the way, have you found anything from "you know who" from that Ameoba place ?  :)

Hope to hear from you soon and please ask some questions in my threads.  ;)

More questions!

(and I answered the others in my thread!)

I'm listening to Prince now, so here's a few questions about him for you:

--What's your favorite Prince video? Least Favorite?

--What's your favorite Prince hairdo? Least Favorite?

--When he lost his mind and changed his name to the Symbol, did you call him "The Artist" or just "Prince"?

--Which one of his girlfriends/ wives did you like best? (and if you say Manuela I will scream)

--If Prince and Michael started slap boxing outside your house, who do you think would get thier jaw broken first?

--Have you see the cover of the LoveSexy album and if you have, what do you make of how Prince looks on the cover?

--Prince is a vegetarian. If you had to cook a meal for him, what would you serve him?

--Prince is also a Jehovah's Witness. If he came to your door with a Watchtower pamphlet, woudl you listen to him or slam the door in his face?  (or grab him, toss him in a box and mail him to me LOL)

--Will you ask me more questons in my Anything Else thread?

Thank you! I hope that's enough questions!  ;)

(and I answered the others in my thread!)

I'm listening to Prince now, so here's a few questions about him for you:  ugh Prince questions... one of the reasons I don't ask as many questions about him is because I don't really like Prince.  but I'll play along anyway....  ;)


--What's your favorite Prince video? Least Favorite?
 favorite Video... maybe When Doves Cry because of all the scenes from Purple Rain
Least? I don't know I haven't seen that many videos.. maybe Diamonds and Pearls.


--What's your favorite Prince hairdo? Least Favorite?
I don't think Prince has worn a do I like yet... maybe the short hair is the best... least is the long, relaxed hair.


--When he lost his mind and changed his name to the Symbol, did you call him "The Artist" or just "Prince"?
 I would call him prince and then say "I'm sorry The Artist Formerly Known as Prince

--Which one of his girlfriends/ wives did you like best? (and if you say Manuela I will scream)  hmmm can't name any but apple and vanity... since vanity was in Berry Gordy's the Last Dragon I pick her!



--If Prince and Michael started slap boxing outside your house, who do you think would get thier jaw broken first?
depends on witch one I decided to bitch slap first!  ;D

--Have you see the cover of the LoveSexy album and if you have, what do you make of how Prince looks on the cover? I hadn't seen it but I have now and I wish he would eat something!

--Prince is a vegetarian. If you had to cook a meal for him, what would you serve him? steak....he needs some meat on his bones  ;D

--Prince is also a Jehovah's Witness. If he came to your door with a Watchtower pamphlet, woudl you listen to him or slam the door in his face? I'd probably do this >>>>>>(or grab him, toss him in a box and mail him to me LOL)  just for you!  ;D

--Will you ask me more questons in my Anything Else thread? Absolutely!

Right now I am taking one class called Blacks in Media its funny because the prof is in his late 50s early 60s, with a Jeremiah Wright sensibility.
And the students... who until Monday...existed in this little bubble thinking the world was one way found out something new.... I could literally see the bubble pop over each kid's head as he talked, and talked and talked... its going to be fun!


I think I'm supposed to take Intro to Ethics but I'm hoping I can replace it with something else.

I'm toying with taking another film studies course. but the profs all know me and it would feel weird being back in their classroom. I also signed up for a Video Game Research course but I don't know if I can actually take it because it conflicts with another class... I just want to know what its about.

The summer session is broken into two halves
6/22-8/1
8/3- Sept something...

anyway- I was going to take two classes this session but the prof requires sooo much reading for his class I don't think I could handle two and my job.

maybe I can take two in the next session. or three if I take something easy.  ;)

I did notice you omitted the cheese from my burger and I appreciate it...

I am really picky about food. With hamburgers it totally depends on where I am eating...

If its home or a family style restaurant (Chili's, Dennys etc) I just want the burger plain.. usually with A1 or ketchup.

McDs burgers are perfect... I open them up and pick off the pickle because I don't like pickes (especially not on my burger) but they are such small slices I enjoy eating them alone. 

Whoppers I always order no pickles, onions or tomatoes and then I open the burger and eat the lettuce then I ate the whopper with just the mayo and ketchup  ;D

people have studied my eating process because I'm like freaking Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally.... I special order a lot!  ;D

Where were you born?  Where did you grow up?  What did your parents do for a living while you were growing up?

I was born in Holland. My dad was in the Air Force so I lived all over

We lived in Riverside CA while my dad was in Viet Nam then when he returned we moved to

Las Vegas > Panama > Wash DC > back to Vegas

When we lived in Vegas my dad retired but my mom, who was working at Denny's as a manager, got promoted to District Manager so we moved twice because of her job
Salinas CA, Stockton CA

then I moved to Santa Barbara CA when I decided to go to college here.. and have been here ever since I LOVE IT!

After my dad retired he got a county job pushing papers... I never really asked him about what he did so i can't say more than that.
My mom left Dennys to buy into a franchise with a friend in Stockton. They owned three restaurants.... but the partnership dissolved and they stopped talking.
then she worked for a coffee business (Java City)
She tried to start her own coffee shops but she bought them in AZ.. she was supposed to open in November but got delayed and ended up opening them in July.... hard to sell coffee in the desert in July...

she ate the big one on that idea and up until last week she was working at the Progressive call center in AZ.. .now she's retired and thinking about stalking me on facebook  :-\\

my dad retired about 3 years ago... from whatever it is he did..  ;)

I don't really do favorites just because there isn't one I would listen to over all others

I love TLC, Janet Jackson, Eminem, Journey  and a bunch of others but I would be sad if I could only listen to one of these artists.

Happens all the time LOL. Simon baker said he had to leave to take care of his elderlymom then he took a pic with my friend.

But I've had it work the otherr way too.

At big love bill Pullman refused to take any pics but he rememered hanging backstage with me at a three six mafia concert so he said yes when I asked. :)

I don't mind if I miss the pic if they make an effort to get as many fans attended to as possible. I hate when they snub right up front when they know they are the only reason we came. Holly hunter could have stayed for a minute but no she ran off quick.

In the end tho it's simply about the timing. You play the odds. I've been lucky a lot so I can't complain when I miss one.

LUNCH!  ;)  seriously... my cafeteria lady had these amazing Tuna sandwiches...and these burritos that were great because they didn't have cheese. I would eat a tuna sandwich and two burritos every day... and, because she liked me and she knew how much I loved them if she ever had left overs she would call me over and give them to me... it was usually one or two more of each... there's a reason I'm as big as a house  ;D


The subject I excelled in was English. I managed to get thru four years of schooling and the only thing I ever read was page one of Grapes of Wrath and the Friends, Romans country men speech from Julius Ceaser.... I could write papers and pass all the tests based on the discussion alone.... later on I actually read some of the books and realized I was missing out on some great literature.

Most people think I don't like seafood because I never order fish... I am just in love with Steak so why get fish when you can eat meat... the truth is tho

I LOVE LOBSTER, SHRIMP and CRAB!!!!!!!

I enjoy fish...but not fish with bones... I don't like those thin fish bones if you accidentally swallow them they get stuck in the back of your throat and its hard to get over the feeling of choking without actually choking  ;)


I don't eat clam chowder but,  if I found myself at an establishment known for clam chowder, I'm sure I could find something else to eat  ;) .... sometimes... and don't tell anyone I said this... its more about the company than the food anyway.  :)

so even if I watched everyone around me eating clam chowder I would be perfectly happy watching them enjoy the soup while I drank water and ate crackers and then I'd just hit a drive thru on the way home  ;)

I'm not saying this because of Farrah- the angels have always been on my list...

so Cheryl Ladd, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson... pretty much in that order.. I've met Tanya Roberts and have no desire to meet Shelly Hack.

Whoopi Goldberg
Ellen Degeneres
Queen Latifah
Sanaa Lathan (Love & Basketball)
Valerie Bertinelli
Cast of Facts of Life
the original cast of ER
and yeah I'll admit it... nut or not I'd be excited to meet Tom Cruise

and Barrack is high on my list too... he was in Santa Barbara once and I hope he comes back but he'd have to come talk on campus... its the only chance I'd have at getting close to him.

Who were your historical, political, sports or entertainment industry hero's grwoing up?



historical? when I first read about Harriet Tubman & then later MArtin Luther King I was moved.... I still didn't quite understand because I was in fourth grade... to me slavery may has well have happened in the 1400s I just didn't really understand that the civil war had ended just 110 years prior.

And with the Civil Rights movement it always seemed like decades ago... like it was the early 1900s I mean I saw the dates and everything but I wasn't thinking... hey its 1976 and MLK marched on Washington in 1963 that's only 15years ago.... it wasn't until I was in college that I really started doing the math and discovered how lucky I was to be born when I was...


sports? I've never been big on sports idolization... I watched Boxing because my father did and he loved Ali but I never really understood why... I was a sugar ray leonard fan cuz he was cute...  ::)

yeah I just don't have any sports idols...


entertainment? Pretty much if they were on TV I totally idolized them... I had big time hero worship for the action ladies... Wonder Woman, Bionic Woman, Cleopatra Jones (the Tamra Dobson movie) if the lady could kick ass I was all over it... I guess I never bought into that whole women must be submissive flowers bull shyt!  ;D

BACKSTAGE!!! at a three six mafia concert.... he was dancing and head bopping and when he saw me he pointed enthusiastically and yelled to me... I VOTED FOR THESE GUYS TO WIN THE OSCAR!!!!!  ;D  oddly he had his 14 yr old son and some of his sons buddies with him.... that seemed a little ill advised considering the nature of three six mafia music but you know.... who am I to judge.... I would have been listening to three six mafia as a teen but not with my parents... so good for them for keeping the lines of communication open.


BTW I wasn't supposed to be backstage but since my officers were working the concert and the people manning the gates were the student employees who work for us I just sort of walked back there and no one questioned it.... mostly because the students are a little afraid of me and the cops didn't care because they know I like rap music.... the crowd was insane tho... no way I was going to be in the audience with 1000 college kids.

I think of myself as more of an ostrich I do a lot of burying my head in the sand... ass up when the walls start crumbling around me...
my friends call me a rabbit tho because it seems I get lucky at the last minute a lot... my luck seems to be running out tho....


favorite cereal?  Sugar cereals!
Peanut butter crunch
Apple Jacks....tho I'm made they changed them! who needs all those colors  >:(
Alpha bits.... tho apparently they've taken out the sugar  >:(
Count Chocula! mmmmmmm
and Frosted mini wheats... the red box, not the yellow... those bite sized ones just don't cut it...

but I had to stop eating cereal because I can actually eat an entire box in one sitting.




If I had a pool of my own I would use it but I have a weird kind of anti-fetish about being in water with other people... it makes my skin crawl... I don't do hot tubs and I don't do pools... some of it has to do with that whole I hate feet thing and I would totally freak out if someone touched me with their foot... but the other part of it is that whole skin cell transference thing... I know there's enough chlorine in the water to kill stuff but I cant get past the image.... I don't take baths either.


2% milk... always...


Why on earth would you ask me such a horrible question? Why would I live anywhere but cali?  ;)
of all the places I've lived this is the only one that's felt like home...

but If I had to be anywhere else I suppose it would have to be Hawaii because its still the US, you have the ocean and the weather is decent... I don't do extreme heat or extreme cold.

I lived in Washington DC when I was 3 for a couple months and again when I was in 4th grade (for almost a year).

I visited my grandmother when I was in the 2nd grade in Maryland.

In 1994 I went somewhere like DC for training (it was DC or Baltimore) we didn't get out too much tho...

then I went again in 1995.... this time we spent a week on a Mennonite Campus in the back woods of Maryland. the county was dry... my friends and I were not. There was one liquor store that stayed open until sundown... and one bar.... pretty much no one in there had all their teeth. it was funny because two of the girls I was with were just a couple years out of college and looked like your stereotypical college girls.. we all got drunk and the girls were dancing together...guess that didn't happen a lot there but it's common enough in Cali...anyway my "slutty" friends (honest they weren't slutty at all...just 'free' ) were the most popular attraction that night.

it was a scary, scary town to alone in after dark tho... I didn't like it.

How many hours of TV  do you watch a day? Some would say too many... I would say not enough... the truth is I watch maybe 8 to 12 hours a day... I think...Its seems I record 4-9 shows a day and I watch even more tv than what I record. The TV is one virtually every moment I am home. some things I pay more attention to than others. and I watch considerably less TV in the summer. But I watch a ton of DVDS.

and the TV is on when I sleep... I cannot sleep without it.


What's your
favorite commercial?  hmmmm I've always been partial to the life cereal commercial. I started reciting it the minute I read the question... I also remember the original Got Milk Commercials  they were really creative... and this one is the best...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plmFkZHjt6Y


Do you have an intolerance for intolerant people?  Absolutely... its probably my biggest flaw because it makes me a total hypocrite but since my intolerance is about people being sooo narrow minded I figure that at least I'm still on the right side of the hypocrisy.... I am for equal rights for everyone except for those who don't believe in equality  ;D  I hope that makes sense  :)


Can you solve a Rubic Cube without taking the stickers off? Yes... but not without disconnecting all the individual cubes and reassembling them....  ;D

I still have my original one. it has never been solved. I once got four sides figured out but then lost them trying to work out the other two... I can get two sides fairly consistently tho...  8)


Do you have any favorite historical people? hmmmm helen keller? harriet tubman? I'm not really all that political... I like everyday people who find braveness in the face of adversity because I know I do not have the strength to do it...  you know if I were Helen Keller I would have lived my life sitting in a corner rocking back and forth or something...

if I were Harriet Tubman once I made that first trip north I sure as shyt would not go back for more..... plus... not to make light of it or anything but walking and sleeping outdoors.... I just don't do that.... people ask me why I don't like camping.. I always say my ancestors endured enough of it running from slavery so I wouldn't have to ever experience that again....yeah at least one of my ancestors was a runaway slave...


What's your favorite place on earth?  In front of my TV... sad but true.....the happiest days are the ones where I have responsibility to know one... where I can curl up all comfy with a dew and a bag of BBQ lays and be all fat and disgusting and just watch my favorite shows.....hour, after hour, after hour....

or LA...

What's your favorite show for the "Golden Age of TV"?

Have you ever had a panic attack right before meeting someone famous?  I mean to the point of almost bolting.

  Yeah I thought so too!  :)

http://What's your favorite show for the "Golden Age of TV"?

wow...the golden age? depends on who you talk to right.... for me I consider the golden age of tV the 50s - mid 60s

its simple.... Honeymooners hands down, no one comes close to having the timing of that group...especially since they did it live!
I also love Leave it to Beaver and Donna Reed... I can watch these shows over, and over and over and laugh like its the first time I ever saw the episode.


if you wanna talk the 70s then the Mary Tyler Moore show is one of the greatest comedies of all time  :)
but as you know I hold a very special place in my heart for Charlies angels, Vegas, Bionic Woman which needs to come to DVD and Wonder Woman....which I have yet to get on DVD.


if you're talking OUR golden age.... the 80s? The best show of the 80s was Cagney and Lacey but I loved the comedies too... so Designing Women is a very close second... 



Have you ever had a panic attack right before meeting someone famous?  I mean to the point of almost bolting.


never to the point of bolting but I have been reduced to a lump of stammering, gibberish speaking goo......

my meet with Jodie Foster went something like this...

me follow Jodie after an event....not cuz I was stalking her but because we actually parked in the same parking lot.... I got the courage to say her name and she stopped.... I said ... um, uh.. humina humina humina .... me you like kid growning up. 

seriously... she looked at me totally confused and said... thank you I think.... yeah...that was excellent  ::)



What's your favorite kind of ethnic food?  (I know preferably from a place that delivers so you don't have to miss less than 3 minutes of TV.)


ha ha... I love chinese food....tho I a percentage of Chinese in my heritage so I guess its not ethnic... Thai? wait I have indonesian too...

um.... Spaghetti..... yeah that's it!  I love spaghetti.

What's your favorite season in the year? Fall....because, theoretically that's when the new tv season starts... but really I like spring the weather is perfect in the spring.

What's the best thing you like about California? proximity to the ocean.... I never go but I like knowing its right there.... I live about 5 or 6 miles from it... I have a great view driving to work because I get two post card shots of it on my drive....


here's a pic of one of the views I get to see every time I drive into town

http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa235/snozberries44/Santa%20Barbara/santabarbara-1.jpg


The worst thing?

cost of living... its so freaking expensive....  and traffic....california would be perfect if the only people who lived were the people who worked in the industry... a few of the service people I need to get stuff done... .and all my friends... everyone else should move to AZ or Montana or something  ;D



Is you could build a time machine and go back in a specific  period of time and place, what time period?


hmmmm I'm not the historical person Kathie is so I don't know that there's any one moment I would go back to... plus... history? not so kind to those like me so how much fun would it be to go back? Maybe if I could go back and enact some changes I might want to do that.... maybe I just want to go to florida and fix those damn voting machines! Imagine the last 8 years if Gore had been president  ;)

For me personally?  I actually think about it a lot. There was a lot of time wasted in my life... If I could go back to the time my mom had the option of moving to Stockton or San Diego... maybe things would be different if she chose San Diego...but then I would have missed out on knowing a lot of great people....

I could go back to high school and actually apply myself get to college earlier and do something with my life but same issue as above...the choices I made, the life I lived... I have come through it with some really strong friends....

in the end there are only two things I would actually change (well three if you count being more responsible with money- from the beginning)

1) would go back to 2001 - I feel out of a chair at work and injured my back.. if I could have that instant back and fall differently or not fall at all the life I live now would be very different....

2) if I could just go back to 2007 and take Carly to another vet she might still be with me today.... I would give all I have for that moment back... honest!  :\'(

The Year Without Santa Claus.


Actually the fires are a recent anomaly.  I moved to Santa Barbara in Sept 1996 and I don't recall any major fires in the area from 96 until July 2007. 
There were three big ones at the same time:  2 SB & 1 LA county in 07.
And then 2 fires at the same time in SB & LA fall of 08
and then this most recent fire...

prior to that the last big fire in Santa Barbara was in 1990.  And.... the majority (if not all) of these fires were started by humans being stupid. 

someone set off fireworks in a dead field.
Some kid played with matches
some drunk college students didn't properly extinguish their bon fire
some guy used a power tool that created a spark and ignited nearby brush....

why do people live in hurricane and tornado prone areas? Because they can't move or because they don't want to.... I LOVE Santa Barbara so I take the good with the bad...

I'm supposed to be getting ready for work! oh well....

Favorite Mini series... um... there was one done in the 80s called Celebrity about a mystery surrounding three famous guys who are connected to a death/coverup back when they were 17 or so.

that... or Chiefs (based on the Stuart Woods books)



I've never timed myself chugging dew but I can slam a can in about 30 seconds...maybe 45
I have had a two liter in one sitting and, I once went to a party and since my cravings for alcohol are so strong I brought a cube of dew with me... I drank 16 cans in 4 hours  8)  (that may have something to do with why I'm fat!)  ;)


CA/budget? God I hope so... I feel bad for the state employees dealing with lay offs and furloughs... and now I may be taking an 8% paycut as well  >:(


I haven't seen much live theater.... but what I have seen I have enjoyed. I saw a production at a community college of Gypsy. I have a friend who's an actress (not a famous one) and she was doing a play in the bay area so I saw that. I have not seen any big plays or productions (but Cali is about as far off broadway as you can get!)  ;)  They do productions in LA and I always say I'm going to go but I never seem to make it.


No I've never been to PA. Wish I could have gone for the mini-meet tho.


and I don't like to fly.. .I used to love it as a kid but now... you'll be pretty hard pressed to get me on a plane... between the whole flying thing and having to take  your shoes off at the security check points... I may never fly again.

hmm besides Kevin and Winnie's kiss and Kevin watching Winnie sleep after her acco.

How about the moment Kevin tries to get popular by making fun of Paul

My favorite episode is the one with the radical teacher who is fired for being unconventional.

Also the one where Kevin can't do math and he's tutored by his math teacher but on the day of the test Kevin thinks his teacher abandoned him but really he died...

How about when Wart comes back after being in Viet Nam? WOW that was a good ep and one of the few times Wayne was likable...

There are so many good moments...

"The one where Kevin can't do math and he's tutored by his math teacher but on the day of the test Kevin thinks his teacher abandoned him but really he died...". That one was fab.

"How about the moment Kevin tries to get popular by making fun of Paul" and Winnie and others. Good one! too

The first kiss episode I like.  The episode where Kevin tried to call Lisa Berlini. Oh, and the Valentines episode where Kevin's card for Winnie gets in (evil) Becky's locker.

And the Eddie Pinetti (the bully guy) episode too.  And the episode when Winnie's parents break up, and also when they get back together during the play "Our town"
I could go on and on, so many wonderful episodes.

I would be something totally fierce and devastating... I think I'd be the Tasmanian Devil... are those like real things? hmmm

I like Secret Gel. Preferably not too flowery... I tend to go for the powder fresh, lavender or tropical.

Interesting... I dont tie my shoes too often because I just step out of them and then step back in...but when they need tightening I believe I start with the left.... mostly because its further away and requires more effort in the bending area!  ;)

you answered the question yourself... it was good.... typically- any show that is good and fresh gets canceled.  See- Pushing Daisies, My so Called Life, The nine, firefly etc....

Its unfortuante but apparently the networks are afraid that if they give us good tv we will raise our standards and stop watching the crap the keep feeding us year after year.

That's okay --- I don't wanna go back and found out either.  :)


Who do you "take" more after, your mom or your dad? 

I'm more like my dad. We have the same lame, warped sense of humor.
He has thousands of CDs I have a thousand DVDs
My dad could do nothing but listen to music all day long... I could (and do watch TV) all day long.

I did get my mother's impatience tho.



Do you like painted walls, wallpaper, wood panelling, brick walls?  (yeah I'm bored and was watching home improvement shows recently)  :P


Love decorating shows- been watching a lot of Sarah Richardson lately myself (Design Inc, Room Service)

I detest wall paper. I like wood and brick but I also like to hang a lot of pictures so wall type doesn't mean that much to me... if I had a house of my own I'd probably just have painted walls.....cafe ole  or sage.


Do you like the ocean?


I love the ocean. I never go to it... but I love looking at it everyday. I went to LA the other day and instead of going the normal way I drove down the coast thru malibu- I haven't driven that way in about 7 years.... because it takes 30 minutes longer.....but it was so beautiful I didn't care.

If I ever win the lotto I'm gonna have two houses.  one in LA and one in SB and one of those houses will have an ocean view.



What is your most favorite "alone" place to go (if you needed some time to think or whatnot)?


I spend most of my time alone so I don't really have a need for an alone place. Sometimes I will go outside and sit on my door step and enjoy the dark... I love the nighttime- the darkness, the stars, the night air. 



What is the best birthday gift you've ever gotten?  What is the best birthday gift you've ever given?


I never really thought about it. I don't usually get the kind of gifts that are memorable. I get a lot of DVDs which I love but I don't say-- that's the one from this birthday or that's from that....

I can only think of two special B-Day gifts I've gotten--- I got the first nintendo game system on my 21st b-day that was awesome

and on my 26th b-day my parents were away on  a cruise but before they left they got me a ticket to watch the Sacramento Kings play the Detroit Pistons.  Those are my two favorite teams and they played in Sacramento on my birthday so I was ecstatic!  Pistons won and I was happy! I would have been happy either way but at the time I liked the Pistons more than Kings...now its the other way around.


Do you wear a watch?  Any other jewelry? 


very rarely. I used to wear one all the time but with a cell phone I find little use for a watch now. 
and no I don't wear jewelry I might wear a necklace like once a year.


Why is 44 your favorite number?


When I first started at UCSB as a student- I got a job working campus security. They gave me the body number 44. I thought it was a good fit (prior to that I was in love with the number 33 because it was the number on the jersey Tom Cruise wore in All the Right Moves....I was also in  love with the colors black and yellow  8) )

Anyway--- I started to identify myself as Q 44  one day I was doodling during a boring lecture and I took my initials and assigned them a numeric value...ala Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 (R=18, N=14)  so if (A=1 and Z=26) what do TQG equal?

T =  20
Q = 17
G =  7

20+17= 37 + 7= 44  after that revelation I knew it was my destiny  ;)




What is your favorite ride at Disney? 


Space Mountain. It combines my two favorite things...Roller Coasters and Darkness.  :)


If you had to change your name to something else, what would it be?


For an entire summer when I was 12 I insisted everyone call me Jill.  (as in Munroe from Chuck's Chicks) but now I think I'd just want people to call me Angel cuz its soooooooo far from what I truly am  ;D

Which celebs do you wish you could've met when they were alive? (If you only wanna name one or two, that's fine as well. I'm just curious.)

Hi, have we met? ask me for a question and I'll answer it no matter how long the list may be  ;D

Rebecca Schaffer
Rosalind Cash
Farrah Fawcett
Robert Urich (actually I met him when I was 13 but I was too stupid to realize how cool that really was and would've like to have had a talk with him as an adult)
Andy Hallett (he played Lorne on Angel)
Glenn Quinn (from Roseanne & Angel)
Nancy Walker... .I really want to talk to her about Can't Stop the Music!
Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopez  :\'(
Bernie Mac.... I had a ticket to go see the taping of his last pilot (which I hear was pretty funny) but I was lazy and didn't go... had I known he was going to die a couple months later I would've gone!
Wendy Jo Sperber

I'm sure there are more but that's all I can think of now.

It sounds like you're talking about OLTL... I watched it for a brief time in the 80's... one episode that stands out, I'm thinking probably 1987-1988-ish.  The characters went to a daytime TV emmy awards show, I don't remember why but I remember the jingle they were singing at the show within the show.  ;D

and no worries even if it's been asked I'm usually happy to answer again!!! we are, after all talking about one of my favorite subjects!!!  ;)  ;D




Are you right handed or left-handed?

Right!

Saving your change history question for a separate post because knowing me it's going to be long...  ;D


If you were to write a book (or series of books) what would they be about?


Death, murder, mayhem and the woman who kicks ass righting all the world's wrongs... there's a reason why I like cagney & Lacey, The Closer, Medium, Dollhouse, and Buffy of course... I've always been drawn to strong female leads!



Favorite zoo animal?


Honestly I haven't been to the zoo since 4th grade...somewhere along the way I started feeling really sorry for the animals and I just couldn't handle the emotions I felt... but I do remember loving the panda they had at the Washington DC zoo so I say panda....tho the tiger is probably, actually my favorite zoo animal.... 



Favorite farm animal?


I'm terrified of horses... well not terrified... I used to love them but then I got bit and then I got bucked...and then one tried to throw me but I wouldn't let go.. I have had three experiences with horses all of them bad... I like baby farm animals.. Funny since I hate kids right?  ;D 
Baby cow... no wait... baby pig.... yeah... I like baby pigs!




Favorite item that you kept (or maybe just wish you had) from childhood?


oh wow... um... I have this stuffed animal that was given to me when I was seven. I was deathly sick - they never figured out (or my mom never told me) what I had but I had fever for a week and it was scary. I got this rabbit that I still have



Favorite perfume or scent?


I don't wear perfume but I like powder... Chanel has a powder that smells good but I'm a sucker for J&J's old skool.... WHAT!?!?  but my all time favorite scent? Food cooking... That's bread baking, cookies, pork... and most definitely the smelll of a good steak on the grill sets my world upside down!!!



Favorite yogurt flavor (if you can stand it  lol)?


Love yogurt but for the longest time I would only eat strawberry or strawbry/bananana... I hate peach and blue berry and stuff... well yoplait recently came out with the best combo I've ever tasted.... Cherry and pomegranate!  OMG that's some good shyt!!!


Favorite Star Trek episode?


TRIBBLES!!!!!  I will admit I'm not really a trekkie so I've only seen half the eps but I've seen enough...



Favorite name from a baby name book?


I'm cheating here... my favorite name didn't come from a book... well I didn't see it there.... It's Sanaa. As in Sanaa Lathan who was in Love & Basketball... from the first time I saw her name I was in love with it!



Favorite constellation?


I tend to choose the one I can identify without help...besides the dippers it's Orion's Belt.  I learned about it from a movie or maybe it was a TV show... I can never remember....

I also learned about Casiopia from The Sure Thing but I can't identify it on my own...
and I learned that the seven sisters is the "Fuzzy Clump"  (got that from Mystic Pizza) but I just look at it go "Fuzzy Clump!"  ;D



Favorite star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Hmmm haven't seen them all yet... One of my favorite memories of a star on the walk of fame happened circa 1995.  I drove from Stockton to LA- it was my first weekend in LA alone ever and I Was excited. I'd come for a General Hospital weekend. On the night I got there I drove around Hollywood BLVD and eventually parked and walked... as I walked back to my car I looked down and realized I  had stopped right next to Anna Lee's star... Anna Lee played Lila Quartermaine... I didn't even know she had a star... I thought it was a good omen for the start of my weekend and I was right... it was my first celebrity stalker activity and I've been hooked ever since!  ;D


Favorite hand/foot prints at Grumann's Chinese Theatre?


hmmm I should have an answer for this but I don't.... when I've gone there I didn't want to be one of those dorky tourist who put their hands and feet in the prints so I just sort of walk over them.. I have glanced at them but never actually stopped to look at them...
weird right?  :-\\

If you could change three events in history (both globally that would affect more then yourself AND change something that would affect just you and/or a small group of friend(s))...What would those events be?

okay I think i can answer this now....



The three global events that I would change would be:

1) I would have find some way for Hitler to die before he could go to Germany.

2) I would've given MLK a free nights stay in any other hotel in Memphis besides the Lorraine Hotel...

3) is a toughie.... I think I'd take the camera away from DW Griffith...It could possibly change cinema forever and not necessarily for the better but the idea of a universe without Birth of a Nation makes me happy.

I know I should be all noble and shyt and be like not only am I stopping the holocaust but I'm obliterating slavery too... I hate that slavery happened. I would stop it if I could have stopped it but- I also- this is shameful but I'll say it... I like my life and if not for slavery I wouldn't be here so you know... I'm selfish like that!  :P


kay... my life rewritten?

This is hard because I think of what has happened to me because of the decisions made and I always think what if... it goes like this...

What if my mom took the job that relocated her to San Diego instead of Stockton?  I met two of my closest friends in Stockton... sure one is gone but the other is still with me... plus a third friend whp's been very open about giving me a place to stay when I 'm LA!  ;D 

What if I had worked harder in High school... sort of the same scenario as the first... I wouldn't have ended up working where I worked so I wouldn't have met who I'd met....

What if I ended up getting into UCLA instead of UCSB... I wouldn't have made the connections I have here. I have some really good contacts and a good friend at UCSB film studies....they love me there... I don't know that I wouldn't have been swallowed up by UCLA...

and if I hadn't come to UCSB I never would've had Carly... honestly- as great as my life could have been if I had I gone to UCLA I think having Carly is the single best thing to ever happen to me...

If I could change one thing I would have figured out carly's illness sooner and I would've gone to a different vet....

If I could change one other thing... I would have been better with money... I keep throwing it away on things.. I know better but I still do it... If I had saved I would not be ducking phone calls now from bill collectors and crap...

and the third thing I would change? If I could go back and not fall out of that chair, injuring my back, I would not fall out the chair... that back injury ruined me.... but maybe- just maybe--- I might only change the fact that I let that lawyer (my lawyer) bully me into signing the settlement because I was totally high ( on pain meds) and not aware of what I was agreeing to.  primarily I would change the money rather than the incident because it was because of the back injury that I got Carly... I was home on medical leave and my friend thought we'd be good for each other....  yeah.... that's it!


Or maybe I'd just rig something up where I win the lotto... and then a select few of my friends... those in need (you know who you are) win too!  Different jackpots of course cuz I wouldn't want to share!!!  ;)

and everyone I really, really like would, after winning their lotto jackpot,  would decide that LA is amazing and they'd move there and we'd all hang out and go to paleyfest together!  It's good to dream right?

1. Did you watch my two all-time favorite shows, 21 Jumpstreet and Candid Camera?


2. Would you want to be a paparazzi, and get paid to see celebrities?


3. Did you write fan letters to celebrities when you were a kid (or as an adult)?


4. Did you ever own a pogo stick?

I loved 21 jumpstreet. That's when I loved Johnny depp then he went and got all weird and stuff. (taking weird roles i mean )

I love the classic candid camera. When I was a kid I was always looking out for Alan fundt.


I DETEST the paparazzi. All they want is to try and catch celebs at a bad time. They have no respect for their privacy, their works or for them as people.
I wouldn't mind being a red carpet photographer only but all those people often freelance between events.

I didn't write fan letters as a kid. I've written a coupler of thank you letters as an adult but that's been to writers and producers not celebs.

I think I'm one of the few that doesn't detest them... although there are definitely some that go overboard.  As long as they are targeting the actual celebrities, and doing so legally, I don't see a problem, it's when they target the celebrity's family or others who didn't choose to be in the limelight (like the guy who found Caylee Anthony's body or Joe the Plumber or "Sully" Sullenberger) that I get irritated.

The way I see it, the celebrities choose to be in the public spotlight and there's no such thing as being in the public spotlight, but only on good days.  If they no longer want to be in the limelight, they can always live and work like we do and nobody will bother them! :)

honestly, it's a visceral reaction with me... if it has the name cheese in it I react to it.  But that's not why I don't like cheese cake...
My mom had this business partner who had us over for dinner every friday. Every friday his dessert was a different type of cheese cake... I had never had cheese cake before and didn't want to eat it because the name turned me off.. I knew it wasn't cheese but it just didn't sound appetizing to me. My mom made me eat because she didn't want to offend him, not only was it way too sweet for me it was topped with blueberries (I hate blueberries) I know- I'm a pain...  anyway the next week I didn't want his stupid cheesecake (this was was topped with raspberries---- see my blueberry comment  ;D ) for over a year I was forced to eat cheese cake on a weekly basis and I'm telling I gagged on the stuff. I tried hiding it in napkins. Clearing the table so I could toss it in the trash... I hate the stuff...  and vowed that I would never eat it again... and I haven't  ;D

Nikki.  She was in my class every year from 2nd grade to 6th, I think.  I haven't even seen that show, I didn't know she had been on it until well after the fact.  Now I wish they would release it on DVD!

Another little anecdote... a good friend of our family, Carleen, played the coffee shop waitress on Indecent Proposal.  Way back when, my mom and dad both showed up to help her move... and that's how my parents met.  :D

You can always will your stuff to whomever you like. From what I gathered, you have enough stuff to start your own museum. What you could do is will your autograph photos to the TV Museum, or your Buffy collection to the Buffy Museum (if there is such a thing), etc.

I know I just figure most of the friends I have either have the same stuff or are older and wouldn't have much use for it (if they were still around) I thought about my friends with kids- the kids would have no idea what the stuff meant... plus- I don't really have anyone to come sort thru my stuff after so I think it'll all just get thrown away by whomever gets that daunting task... okay this is a depressing topic I don't want to talk about it anymore.  :-\\

Do you hand out candy to all the little trick-or-treaters on Halloween?


when I was a kid I used to but I don't anymore... there's a couple of reasons for that.

1) the way my apartment is situated no one really knows I live here. The driveway is shared by 4 houses, my landlord's door faces the driveway. my entrance is on the side of the house so you'd have to know I was here to look for my door. I always have to put special instructions on my UPS and FED EX deliveries otherwise all my stuff winds up on my landlord's doorstep.


But number one is a moot point because I haven't been off on Halloween in 12 years.

Halloween is a major event here (google Isla Vista Halloween)  we have over 200 officers working when it lands on a weekend and 100 working on weeknights... the whole week is blocked so no time off is granted.

We have to staff dispatch with extra dispatchers and I usually pull 16hr shifts so on Halloween I'm either at work or asleep because I just got off a long shift.  ;D

The Color Purple.... it was a special crayon made by the Crayola heir for Oprah... I totally want that crayon!

I  would do the Red Carpet of the emmys but I'd have to record the emmys at home so I'd still get to watch the ceremony the way I like to...


I prefer my friends call me Q.  If you don't call me Q I prefer Tq... I have one co-worker who calls me T (even tho I sign all my emails Q) it bugs the hell out of me! 

I never really thought about the family photo thing... I don't really have a favorite that I can think of off the top of my head... I'll look at them and get back to you...

I'm totally a straw person when it comes to drinking from a glass at a restaurant or getting a drink from a fast food place....
I'm sans straws at home....

I love bendy straws....when I have a straight straw I often put a bend into it...

as a kid I loved those super curly straws. It was fun watching the liquid travel from my cup up..... but now I just think they must be a breeding ground of germs I mean how does one thouroughly clean a straw like that?    I may just be the only slob on the planet who is also a germaphobe.... basically my mess no problem but the potential for germs elsewhere.....yeah I'm pretty picky.  ;D


oh and clear straws but if I'm presented with color options I always go blue.... unless black is available.

I haven't tried the cookie straw but I might one day....depending on what flavor cookie it is... I'm hoping shortbread/sugar cookie....

I would love to work in casting. I think I have a good idea of who'd be good for what role... plus, if I had anything to do with it Kristen Stewart would not be acting  ;D  

I wouldn't want to be a talent agent just because I don't think I'd have the patience to properly "handle" the celebs...

and I wouldn't want to be paparazzi because as much as I don't want to cater to celebs - I also don't want to be a part of exploiting them.

I don't have a normal lunch I eat whereever the officers eat. It could be Chinese, subway, a different sandwich place I really like, sushi, chili's or L&L Hawaiian BBQ.
Or mcd's wendys or jack cracks.

If I could I would only eat at the sandwich shop ( they have a tri tip sandwich that kills!!!)
Well I would eat there and at my favorite sushi joint. But they are pretty expensive so I can't afford to eat there daily.

A beef tri-tip roast is a boneless cut of meat from the bottom sirloin. It also is called "triangular" roast because of its shape.



There are two (well I guess three ways to serve a tri tip sandwich) 

Tri tip is generally grilled.  You can eat it sliced... in cali its typically served with beans and rice and a tortilla...

in sandwich form it's usually put on a french or italian roll.  Then it's topped with BBQ sauce or salsa...

My favorite tri tip sandwich (which is no longer being served) was served on a french roll that had a garlic butter spread - it was then toasted on the grill and came out like garlic bread.. .the tri tip was piled on and then the best BBQ sauce was poured over it...  (horse radish was another alternative but I don't eat it)

My second favorite uses an italian roll. they spread a chipotle mayo and put salsa on top of the tri tip... I love it. and because it is still avail it's now my fave.

my third fave is like number one (and still offered) but they don't the garlic spread so it's not as good as number one...


my fourth fave is considered the best tri tip in Santa barbara but I think it's just okay.. its served on some kind of round roll with bbq.... but I don't the bbq is that great... I think if the people who call it the best had one of the two sandwiches above they would change their minds...

I'm currently on a quest for the best tri tip in Santa barbara and La... I eat it where ever I go and keep rankings in my iphone... trust me if I find any better I will let you know...

anyone who wants to come to Santa Barbara and try one I'd be happy to hang with you!!!!  8)

I think I'd like to get a shot at that new show Million dollar Drop off....

I'd like to test my wits on are you smarter than a fifth grader

and I'd like to try something like who wants to be a millionaire (but before they put in the time limit)



If I were to win something first and foremost I'd love to win cash!!! second would be electronics.  When I was at Make a Deal there were a few prize packages I would've loved and a few I hated.... I don't want to win a trip anywhere because I don't enjoy traveling but if I did win a trip I''d give it to my mother as a gift so that wouldn't totally suck... I don't want to win furniture because it's usually ugly and I don't have room for it...  I would've loved to have won a washer a dryer (they gave featured as a prize at LMAD) I don't really have a place for one but I'd make it work...


As for hosts. I like Wayne Brady. I love Meredith Viera. I like Wink Martindale.

It looks like they are walking or standing on the floor but that's just an illusion... they are actually floating. It requires amazing core muscle strength to do so but once you're a ghost it's not really that much of an issue  ;D

Well, considering the Zodiac Killer commited the bulk of his crimes in the Bay Area and is only presumed to be responsible for a homicide in Riverside (which is an hour or so away from LA) I'd say LAPD is about as instrumental to solving the Zodiac Killer case as they were in solving the Son of Sam and the Boston Strangler cases  ;)

Well they were going ot make the pizzas square and put them in a round box but they found round things fit better into square holes than square things into round holes....

also...they did try to put the pizza in round boxes but they found it left little to no room for the diner to put their hand in the box and get a piece.... people who eat pizza are inheriently lazy (and probably high) so it's important not to make them work to hard...otherwise they won't comeback and order more....

If  you're asking if the trip was twice as long at both speeds then the answer would remain the same....if you drive at 30mph or 60mph for the same distance then you'll burn approximately the same rate of fuel.... however if you're asking if you drive the vehicle for twice as long at 30mph then you would at 60mph then you burn less fuel at 60mph because you'd get where you're going faster.......

UC Berkley & UC Santa Barbara have the highest cost of living.
If you rank the UC Dispatch wages Berkely is #1 or #2 on the list

Howard if I let that stuff stress me out I wouldn't have lasted in the job for 13yrs.

It sounds callus but you really have to adopt an 'It sux to be you' or 'Better you than me' attitude.
As long as I do the best job I can i don't worry about the outcome. People die. It sux but it's true.
It's only hard when you're dealing with someone you know. I could care less about people I don't know (meaning I will provide them the best service possible but I'm not emotionally invested in the outcome) but with people I know it's different. It's harder to separate from that.

As a kid I played with barbies all the time. Not in the girlie way but in the way a tv addict reenacts her favorite shows.  ;) ;D
If I wasn't using my barbies to reenact tv shows I was using them to pay out new scenarios I created. I think vie always wanted to be a tv producer I just didn't realize it until my 30s.

The collecting of barbies is different tho. I may have mentioned this before but I've always been a slob. I hate cleaning my house as much as I hated cleaning my room. When I was a kid my mom threatened to throw all my toys away if I didn't clean my room.  I didn't and she did.  :-\\

She threw away everything. I was severely traumatized.  Part of the problem is we moved so much when I was a kid that I tied up my whole identity and that feeling of "home" that- I suppose kids who stay in one place have- to my stuff.  If my mom could just so callously throw my stuff away could she throw me away. And even more 'who am I with the things that identify me' I cannot explain to you the damage that incident. Blame me for not cleaning but seriously it's the reason my things are more important to me than people. It's why I'm constantly obsessed with what will happen to my "stuff" when I die.  Anyway I started collecting barbies as way to repair that hoe. To get back the stuff that was stripped away from when I was a powerless kid. ....It didn't really work that way but it helped a little.

Is this the month that had Easter or was that last month?  Let's say in the last 30days  ;)

a high school friend - wait. A person I knew in high school (we weren't really friends then) who I  reconnected with at a mini reunion sent me this box of tv trivia cards.  It was just something she found at the dollar store nothing big but it meant she saw them thought of me and found it important enough to send to me.  I wish I more like that.  I think of people all the time but I never take tbe time to show them that I do.

Do you like walking uphill or downhill best?




I'm rather lazy so if I have to walk a hill I'd rather go downhill because it requires less effort.  ;)



Do you like to swim?




This is a little known fact about me but I do like to swim.  (yes I wear shoes in the pool)
But. I hate the idea of all those people in water at the same time. There's no amount of chlorine in the world that will make that okay. When I was in PT for my back injury they made me do pool therapy. It was the best but the most stressful for me. The therapist scheduled me an hour before the pool opened so we were the only two in the pool and she wore swimming shoes.  (I don't go to pools or crowed beaches because .....well....you know why.  So it was kind of her to do it.

My dream home will have a pool so that I may start swimming agaiN....ALONE.  :D


And, for the record, I detest hot tubs and bath tubs  8-P

I will answer these next time I get up and sit at my computer. Effie is passed out across my legs while im laying on my couch and I don't want to disturb her.



Do you like to grocery shop?




It's not a matter of liking or disliking grocery shopping. I like eating so I don't mind shopping. What I suck at is meal planning and stockpiling I'll get the supplies for spaghetti but forget a main I gradient so I have to go to the store again. Because of the way I shop I probably visit grocery store 3 or 4 times a week. But I dont mind. I do however hate getting a craving late at night or being on my days off not wanting to leave my house and finding out I have to hit the grocery store because I screwed up and don't have what I want/need in the house.


 
Did you wear makeup as a teen or play in it as a young child?



Never. I have worn make up once that was about 10 or 12 yrs ago when I was interviewed for a campus program about a Melrose Place art project/auction I was a part of. (I worked the auction not the art). I hated it. The make up and interview not the project that proje t was awesome.

Designers Lee Owen and Doug Cox decided to design the Bosch to address the issues that front loading and top-loading machines have. This washer and dryer concept has a spherical drum that allows the clothes to be washed in all directions, thus provides maximum cleaning of your clothes. Washing with the Bosch 360 is easier on your back because its door is placed at 45-degree angle and the control panel of digital touch screen technology is place on the door. Aside from its amazing performance, the Bosch 360 also has an eye-catching design making it a perfect home décor if not in use.

IF you really do look into buying a washer/dryer combo you need to check if it can dry the same weight load as it can wash.  I know there are some brands that can only dry half the weight of the washload so you still don't get the convenience factor or you have set more wash loads :-\\

It's no problem Karen since I'm only washing for myself I can wash smaller loads so the dry timely. As long as I don't have to go to the laundrymat anymore. It won't be a sacrifice. As it is I hate going to the laundry so much I wait until I have a month and half worth of clothing. But even if I had to do twice as much laundry by making  small loads it'd still be more convenient than lugging clothes back & forth and dealing with the transients  8-P and screaming kids!

Since owning a small dog, do you love it?  Or would you take in a big dog in a heartbeat???  I am a big dog fanatic (probably why I have a newfie) and I love my standard poodle (and I want an Olde American Bulldog cross), but really have never owned a dog smaller than 35 lbs.  I am afraid I will, step on it or it will annoy me severely as those I have ever visited are obnoxious.  Just wondering???

A) I can tell you with complete conviction Effie's not obnoxious. (& I'm not saying that as her mom it's actually true!

B) I never thought I would go small. The smallest dog I had was medium sized. Part sharpie about 30 or 40lbs & that was small to me.

C) I'm a big dog person too but to me it's the personality of the dog. Carly's still the best dog I ever had.
But I also realized that because of my back it was really hard to have her at the end. I spent a year picking up her 120lbs to help her in & out the car. It caused me great pain. In the heart and in the back. I know I can't do tgat again.

D) I've stepped on Effie a couple times but she's let me know and I moved before I hurt her. She has a tendency to stand behind me or sneak up on me so when I move I have no idea where she is. I'm learning to look 1st or talk before I move so she moves and I can see. The hardest is moving in the dark cuz she's so quiet and blends into the night.

E) I used to hate chihuahuas but my mom got one (widget-not her real name but that's what I call her) and I fell in love w/ her personality. That's what let me open my heart to Effie. I planned on no dog at all but if I did get one again it was going to be bigger  then ef but she stole my heart at first sight.

F) I take it back, what said in A- ef does one obnoxious thing. She Hayes being excluded so in the landlords are in their yard she'll yelp until the open the gate and let her play. Other than that shes a great dog.

One of the things I could do with my medium dog and now with Effie is cuddle in bed. I loved Carly but she didn't fit in my bed so to cuddle with her I had to lay on the floor. 

I'm toying w/ the idea of getting Ef a compnion. She seems so bored and a friend would help but I'm not sure I'm ready for the responsibilty of two dogs. And how will that dog fit into the routine ef & I established.

I'd buy the interesting ones. As a kid I'd get the clothes and the accessories and do the whole barbie thing but as an adult I wasn't so excited about Barbie fashions.


when I worked at a mom & pop toy store in Stockton I spent tons of money on barbies - an elderly lady came in with her hubby and she had been collecting for years. She used to buy all the clothes and her hubby, a photographer, used to take model shots of Barbie in her various outfits.  The lady had hundreds of barbie outfits open but well packaged and well preserved. 

After her hubby died she came into the store with her daughter. We talked about Barbies for an hour. The daughter was bored but the lady was happy because no  one had talked to her about them since he passed.  she wanted to organize her collection and I offered to come out and help her. I ended up driving her to a barbie show in Sacramento and she was so happy to be out and among other barbie peeps.  We had lunch and afterwards we went to her house and I pulled all her barbies out of storage (the lady was a hoarder before we had a term for it - but her stuff was neat she just had so much of it.)  I labeled all the barbies and we looked at all the clothes and the photo albums and stuff... The lady decided asked if I thought her collection would garner much money and I told her I wasn't sure about the clothes because they were open but the dolls for sure.  She selected a few for me and gave me all the clothes anyway. The next time there was a toy/doll show I took my toys and her barbies. I made a couple hundred bucks *before ebay ruined my business  >:(  but when I pulled out those clothes the barbie peeps went wild! I went to her place and gave her the stuff that didn't sell and 1700 in cash!  She was so happy....sad about the stuff she no longer owned but happy to have some money and that people were really excited about it.  I took out her collection and let her look at it again- then we looked at her hubby's photo albums of barbies.

Soon after that I moved to SB.  I'd seen her a few times before I left and once on a return visit. A year after I moved to SB she died. She left me her Barbie collection and her books (she had hundreds of books... like 50 boxes of books were stacked in my parents garage when I came home to see what I inherited. 

I was really happy to get her collection (sad about her death obviously) but happy because she had some great dolls... her bitch of daughter tho kept some of the dolls she thought were worth a lot of money... I wouldn't mind but the daughter always rolled her eyes when her mom started talking Barbie. I wasn't looking to profit and never, in a million years, would've have imagined her leaving me the collection.  I would have loved the dolls the way the mom did... doesn't matter tho cuz the daughter was stupid and only kept the bob mackies (god I loved those bob mackies)  but she left all the 60s and 70s dolls.... in the end what I inherited was, at the time, before ebay, more valuable than what she kept.

Well, considering the Zodiac Killer commited the bulk of his crimes in the Bay Area and is only presumed to be responsible for a homicide in Riverside (which is an hour or so away from LA) I'd say LAPD is about as instrumental to solving the Zodiac Killer case as they were in solving the Son of Sam and the Boston Strangler cases  ;)

Not all the states have straight borders.  Thomas Jefferson proposed that the western states be divided into a chequer board pattern.  Every state west of the Mississippi has at least two straight borders (except for Oregon Minnesota and Texas).

in my area? in Santa Barbara I think it's gotten up to 105 or 110 (it's rare but it's been pretty frequent in the last couple yrs.


in AZ when I visit my parents I think it got up to 150..... okay not quite but it was certainly above 120.


I don't pay a lot of attention to weather howard so these are guesses I don't actually take the time to look and see just how hot it is I only know these numbers because I have a vague recollection of hearing them mentioned somewhere.

I've thought a lot about that. The disposition of my "stuff" stresses me out. A) I'm afraid of who is going to be tasked with the daunting chore of cleaning out my stuff. They won't appreciate or comprehend the value of it. And since I don't have family I have no idea who would do it I dont have a friend close enough to say would you please....seems like a lot to ask....

And I don't know who to give what. You know it's a lot to think about.

The Paley Center (formerly known as the Museum of Television and Radio) was founded by William S. Paley. Ya know...that guy who started CBS. Anyway he thought that radio programs and TV shows should be kept in a place where people could continue to enjoy them long after they aired.  The center has an extensive library of television (and radio) programming that goes back decades! They restore vintage shows, air themed programs during the diay...ie if a celeb is having a b-day then they will air various shows that that celeb appeared on.

Throughout the year the center puts on special programs celebrating particular series, stars etc.

Last night they were honoring Flo and promoting her book. Carol is her BFF so she was in the audience.

Last week I was trying to "view the view" on  Hula & ABC.com but couldn't from our country. I was able to see it at CTV.ca

I'm curious though.  Can you see the (CTV.ca)  videos in the U.S. or do you get a similar "out of country" message.
Here's the link:

some things I was pondering today

why do people wrap dog poop in a bag and then tie the bag to a tree?  wouldn't it decompose better if they just left it on the floor?

Why do some people cycle the wrong way down a one-way street when there is a perfectly good cycle path that runs parallel to that road?

Is that girl I see in the mornings ever going to realise her cheapo leggings are so thin that everyone can see her underwear?  Or maybe she forgets to put her skirt on occasionally, who can tell?

will I ever finish sewing the curtains for my kitchen?

Will I ever get to see the episode of CSI after one where Grissom was sent of model of Sara Sidle stuck under a lorry?

Because they are stupid.

Actually people seem to think you ride a bike the way you walk, against traffic, truth is you're supposed to treat your bike like a vehicle and go with traffic.  Although, maybe those you see are American and, therefore, they are traveling (in their minds) in the right direction. Oh and the don't use the oath because they never bothered to notice that it's there.

She has no one in her life courageous enough to tell her the truth. Unless you do it she will continue to wear them. If it amuses you then carry on  ;D


will I ever finish sewing the curtains for my kitchen?


Will you? YES When will you? Perhaps just in time for the apocalypse

Depends? Are you actively looking for it! You should've seen it while you were here. It should be on DVD there by now. Real question is.....do you really care? It was kind of lackluster, as I recall.  But it's been a few years. I'd actually have to watch season 7 again to fully remember the whole thing.

We left the UK the week it screened here originally.  The night I could have seen it as a re-run in the US we had a power cut!

Now there is so much CSI on at random times I haven't worked out where we are interms of being able to see it again.  At least you've told me which series to look out for!

Just wanted to make sure i had the right info for you Karen.... The miniature killer did indeed dominate the season seven story arc.  The finale was Living Doll.  That's where Grisom got the diorama  of Sara's car accident. The episode after that was the opening of season 8...it's calked Dead Doll.  Hope that helps.  ;)

The more you spread word and gossip around the more you risk to get wrong or run against wall, that's the way it goes.

Did you get involved in any other misunderstanding on these boards ?

Thanks for the questions Paco!

Have I been involved in other misunderstandings?


Yes, two.  Others may disagree and say there have been more but I will explain.

1) Frank was a great member with an excellent sense of humor. He could give OT really and always took the jokes really well.  I guess one joke another member & I made) didn't land as intended. I don't think the joke was bad, I think it was a sensitive issue in his life hat we could never have known about and it offended it him. We apologized but it was too late.

2) I was joking with another member here and I didn't realize he didn't know I was joking or didn't find it funny. He's still around, and we still interact but now that I know that after 6 yrs he still can't tell when I'm joking I've decided he's not worth joking with. Nice guy but why waste the funny on someone who doesn't appreciate it.

A) I just remembered one more, like number two there is a member here who, on two occasions took offense to something I did....
One ha since turned into a running joke on the boards  the other was a result of said member being too sensitive. I didn't apologize for it because there was nothing offensive about it. It wasn't a joke, it wasn't banter, it wasn't abusive. It was an statement, similar to one I've made in dozens of other posts. It resulted in a ridiculous request being made but the issue was resolved by the mods


Those are my misunderstandings.  King Tut said she was warned about me and my behavior.  I can only interpret that to be in relation to a few battles I've had.  I don't like whiny, 1990s decadeolgist teens with nothing better to do with their day than whine about their mommies not changing their diapers.  If some people don't like my interactions with them, sobeit, I'm not the only one and you have to admit, a few trolls have been exposed because of these exchanges.  JohnAvery and HUD come to mind.

Finally, there are members that ive gotten into fights with. About hat I say this:

1) There two members here who I disagree with deeply on some serious topics. Both of them have, in my opinion, said some hateful things that I took offense to.  I would say we were debating but it was an endless debate. I have, and will continue to try, to avoid their posts where I can. I'm willing to agree with people that you and I don't see things the same way and i will say you are entitled to your opinion, I value that, but can you say the same about me and my opinion? It incenses me when people say no because you're still wrong.

Religion; racism; Gay rights and the right for a woman to chose for herself about her body are trigger issues for me. It sux that in 2011 people are still so narrowed minded about things that, for the most, part won't even affect them....I especially get angry when people use religion to defend their hatred & intolerance.


2) Mcfly and I had a pretty public battle part of it had to do with his position on abortion (a man telling me women should have the right to choose pisses me off way more than a woman saying it). But he also got upset about something and insulted a lot of members here. He made few friends with his posts and really put the target on his own back. Again, I was not alone in that one. 


3) Mr. Mister deeply offended a dear friend of mine.  He took the battle we were having in private messages publicly to the boards and I finished the fight there. It was not pretty and I'm no proud but he said some horrible things in those posts. He was suspended and when he came back two weeks later h lost his damn mind and wrote a most hateful open letter to the mods.  That's what got him banned. 



I apologized in the incidents where I was joking and didn't realize it would offend the other party. I have yet to hear a thank you for my apology.


Wait. Take that back.... I was having a super bad day once and took I out on Howard, outside of the normal banter, I apologized for my outburst and willingly accepted it. Howard's cool like that.


Oh I think I apologized to you too when you first started because I thought you were messing around. I didn't realize you were just learning/practicing English  :)    You also accepted my apology and we became friendly penguins.    O0

Well, so far I haven't asked so much to you Q.      Wrong !!  Cause you always answer your doorbell and cellphone, and inthe00s way beyond expected.

Curiously enough the last person to ask you blew out in a flash, to intrigue me in how it comes that someone could have a row through the boards.

I often hesitate to make jokes Tq. I'm never sure about how it would turn out, nevertheless teasing with care should be a must if you want to fit and join to an odd bunch.  ;)

Single, stiff folks are good to know, too, but when you come across a special one who thinks is  better laugh than cry, smile than frown, to trade for a while, then you wear on nose's top a red ball and you sprout the poet and the clown mixed in your soul. The only requirement is the same short wave must work in both transceiver and receiver.

In other hand, diversity is what makes great a place to stand in.  When you're sailing and you stare at the bow,  you see wave after wave and nothing else in between, the ocean is smaller than loneliness. Soo I like to see kind of different people to emphasize who I am, that it helps me to soar and fake two chaps, loneliness and boredom, the two real fatal comrades I hate the most,  though I never argue with.

I guess some people ain't learnt how to deal with others, so they get into trouble, way too often.  Instead of empathizing they choose ignorance and intolerance.

Having troubles then and now is something we can't avoid, but we never have to make a hell of a row.

And finally,

are you sure I didn't say thank you to your apologize ?  :-\\

Oh..thank you ....a year's delay  :D

I hope you feel better....now. :P

I don't just joke with people out of the blue Paco. I test the waters and if the person has what seems like a good sense of humor I will joke with them.  Most of the people I joke with have been around for years and know my personality by now.  With King Tut, she started joking and we had some fun exchanges without problem. Soimething happened and she took my last post to her to be more than it was. That was her issue not mine. It was pretty obvious that I meant no harm and I don't think, even the people I don't always get along with, would find anything offensive in that post. 

I can't control how people react I can only control my intent. I know deep in my heart I never intended to offend KT or start a fight. So I don't feel bad about the post... I feel bad about the drama that followed it.


And finally,

are you sure I didn't say thank you to your apologize ?  :-\\

It's possible KT was a former member returning or is currently signed up again as a new member.  I really haven't given it much thought.  There are way more important things going on in my life so whether or not KT is here or off in a corner crying somewhere is of no significance to me.

It's not always easy where I work Howard if I'm early I don't just stand by the time clock waiting until my time. I will go to the squad room and check in with the officers or go into records and talk to my boss....sometimes the Chief or a Captain wants to talk to me or I need something from the supply closet or I wait in dispatch and get a shift briefing from the dispatcher who worked before me....

The people in our organization know that it's impossible in law enforcement to do everything on the dot... they give us 7 minutes before or after to clock in.  If my shift starts at 0700 I have until 0707 to clock in.... if I clock in at 0708 then I am late.... If I was in the station and just missed the punch by a minute I submit a form to my boss and she corrects my time card, if I was late because I just walked in the door I take the 15 minuted deduction.

I love this question!!!!  This is the stuff I dream about.... 


Day one.... I would drive to LA, walk into the Paley Center and give them a Million Dollars.... part of that would be for my super special VIP membership and part of that would be to reserve my paley fest tix for the next 20yrs.


Then I would meet up with the realator I called and put in an offer on this great house about 4 miles from Paley... and has a great yard for Effie to run in...


I'd buy a new car and drive to AZ to see my parents.


I'd spend about a week in AZ paying my parents bills.  We would sit down with our list of family and friends and see who we wanted to help out.


At night I would be cruising charitybuzz.org and see what kind of great Hollywood experiences I would be buying myself (in the name of charity of course)... I'd probably also contact some of my fave celebs via twitter and see about a celeb experience in exchange for a generous donation to their fav charity. 


and then I'd pack them up in my car and drive back to Cali. Put them up in the Biltmore in Montecito and then we'd figure out where they want to live so I could buy them a house and I'd get my dad a live in nurse so my mom can take a break. 


I would then buy this sweet little cottage in SB for myself... a weekend home


I'd go to toys R us and find someone who seemed like they were struggling and offer them a shopping spree for their kids...
Then I'd go to walmart and do the same...

I'd go buy gift cards at a grocery store and just randomly hand them out to people who seem to be in need.... the other day I passed the library (in the poor part of SB - yes we have a poor part) and there were maybe 50 people in line to get stuff off the food bank truck... I said that day if I ever won the lotto I would go get $100 or $250 gift cards to the nearest grocery store and just walk down the line handing them out...


I would buy this department a new radio system (because it desperately needs one) but I would donate it annonymously because I wouldn't want anyone from work to know about my wealth...


after all that was done, I'd settle in LA and go to all the paley events and tv show tapings I wanted...


Oh..... and I once told Rob Thomas if I ever had the money I would totally back his plans for a Veronica Mars movie (he said that he and the actors all wanted to do one but they were lacking financing....) 


yeah I haven't thought about this much at all.  ;D

I hate to say this but I never really understood the appeal of the muppets. Miss Piggy always drove me nuts!  I  have tried to give them a shot about 10 yrs ago and I found myself still not interested in the show.  I want to see the movie but I fear I won't enjoy it as much so I will wait for it on DVD. 

Having said that I kinda liked the muppet babies animated series... and, if I had to pick my favorite muppet it would be Animal cuz he played drums and I always wanted to as a kid.

honestly I'm not a big art fanatic. I took an art class (as a requirement for school) and spent a lot of time researching an artist. I can't remember his name  :-\\  but I have a 3 1/4 disk with some of his work on it at home...

I have a pic of Billie Holliday visiting some kids at a black school. It sort of reminds me of, well me, because here are these kids getting a chance to meet this phenomenon/icon.

Have you drawn up any contingency plans for a possible zombie attack?


Why do you think I'm really doing the breast cancer walk. In I can walk 39 miles by late sept I'll be able to travel long distances in dec and I'll be in a position where I can probably run too.
So long as I can out run some people but stay behind the fastest (middle of the pack) then I'll last at least a week!

Plus I own enough documentaries night of the, day of the dawn of the, the walking, and of course zombie land so I'm ready!!!!  :D

It's okay Howard.  It's a dispatcher's superstition. We never put stuff out in the universe because the minute you do it comes back.

You can ask a dispatcher if it's been busy but you can never say 'seems slow today' the minute you talk about how slow it is that's when it get busy.

I once was joking with someone how no one has fallen off a cliff in a while and some one fell off the cliff within an hour.

I once used a car accident as a training scenario and we had one 15 mins later.

I worked with a dispatcher and everytime she put on a Bob marley cd someone died. We banned her bob marley cd lol.

How big is the venue? Will it hold 100 ppl? 500? 1500?  If it's a small venue you can look go early or the day before and wait near the artist entrance and hope to catch them/him going in or out for rehearsal. 

Find the better hotels in the area and stake them out the day before/day of  there may be a chance to catch him/them checking in, checking out, or returning the night of the concert.

Call the local radio station, forgive me for this, but play up your illness, maybe the dj will take sympathy on you and help you get backstage...

is he on twitter? nope...Janet has a twitter account and she's only following Randy... Randy last tweeted on Feb 13th. That means he's not very twitter active but still worth a shot you could start tweeting with Randy and see ask if there will be any fan meet and greet possibilities before or after the show.

Hey Y'all!

Thanks for the advice. I was planning on trying to play up my illness to a bodyguard. To security. My left arm is where my dialysis work is done and anyone can see it. And it doesn't bother me at all to play up my illness. I'm not opposed to it at all, and maybe for once it can benefit me. I have like 5 different Jacksons on twitter and I keep tweeting Marlon and Jermaine because I think Jermaine usues his the most.

And I did buy a ticket to a VIP lounge before and after the show so I hope the Jacksons mosey on in there. My friend only cares about eating in Houston, I don't give a flying fudge about food. She can eat. Just leave me at the stadium with a can of mace for protection. So I'm trying a few things. Playing the sick card, making a sign that asks Marlon for a hug. I'm trying. I hope I deserve it and can meet him.  :)

Honestly any security guard worth his paycheck won't care. ...they're paid to be hard asses.  Do you know who their managers, publicity agents are? Their handlers and assistants might be your best course of action.  Try emailing them and tell them your situation that might work.

If I were to direct a movie (I'd prefer to write one but I'll stick with directing for you) I would love to direct do one of those lifetime movie-esque films...but one where the woman gets revenge on the dude.... like Enough (w/ J-Lo) and Extremities (w/ Farrah)  they both played in the theater. They didn't get huge audiences but they made an impact on me. I love women who kick ass....that's why I'm so pro Buffy.



I wouldn't mind directing a horror film...but only if it's super awesome..... I couldn't bear having my name attached to a really lame horror flick or painfully slow and hard to watch one.

Also, I'd like to get one good rom com under my belt... one destined to be a classic like Pretty Woman.

And super friendly.  At one point he was sitting on the back of that truck behind him, in the pic where he's giving me a goodbye hug,  and he's just chilling eating his dorito's.  two girls walk down the street (we were in a residential neighborhood) they had no idea filming was going on... he yells across the street 'Hey Ladies' in that sexy voice of his... the girls are a little annoyed and look back, stop and stare in disbelief, then a crew member yells You want a hug from Shemar Moore?

He was shooting an episode of Criminal Minds.  My friend and I found out they were filming in a neighborhood so we went by to watch... a couple days later we were driving through Burbank and saw the Criminal Minds crew shooting at a home improvement store. We stopped and found out that Matthew Lillard was shooting... he plays the serial killer - the house we were at a few days eariler is supposed to be his house. He was not there that day so I guess they filmed his scenes later or he wasn't there - there were background actors playing crime scene investigators so he could be dead or they found a dead body in the house...according the home owners the decor for the home was quite "special"  ie unique... the crew packed up the home owners stuff and dressed the set with their own design. There was one item the homeowner liked and the set dresser said she could have it after they finished filming because they wouldn't use it again. 

I wish they'd come shoot at my house!  ;D

He's either doing a film or working for the FBI (see logo on shirt). If he's working for the FBI and Q was there, then she's working for the FBI too.
Howard,  think you and I know too much now, the FBI will have us killed soon.  ;D :D


Ha... he plays Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds. He's an FBI agent on the show and he was shooting a scene in which he storms a house to arrest a serial killer (presumably Matthew Lillard - as mentioned above)

those who came before...those who rose from nothing and made it big....those who do good things....

In case you hadn't noticed I love my celebs so people like Whoopi and Oprah are on my list but I'm not completely superficial....  Every person who marched, sat, stood, bled and died in the civil rights movement has my undying gratitude. 

I met the daughter of Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy and Malcolm X. I thanked them all (tho on some level I disagree with Malcolm's tactics I thank him for the fight).

I was in a room and listened to Myrlie Evers  (widow of Medgar) give a speech honoring the movie the Help and particularly Viola Davis work in the film and I cried the whole time she spoke.

I admire the Barack and Michelle for getting where they have and doing with grace and dignity despite all the obstacles, challenges and hatred they've faced...


and I admire Joss Whedon cuz the man is a freaking GOD!!!    ;)

Of the 911 calls we get while many are legite we get far more false calls.  Not always prank calls more like accidental calls. 

The campus has it's own phone system. To dial out callers must first dial a 9... if they have a long distance call they must follow that 9 by a 1. You'd be surprised how many people forget they already pushed the one and wind up pushing it again.  If I were in charge they would have to push 8 to get an outside line. 

(then again we get funded by how many 911 calls we receive - regardless of if they are mis dials or not....so thank you stupid people on campus....thank you but please stop hanging up--- just stay on the phone and tell me it was an accident. I won't send the police if I can prove it was an innocent mistake but I will if go "OH!  and hang up quickly"  ::) 


Some genius also decided to switch from actual handset phones in the elevators to a button/speaker system that sits on the panel with the floor buttons and door open/close button.

you'd be surprised at number of people who look at the button with a symbol of a phone on it and think it's the <|> hold doors open button....  ::)  best part is when they try to be quiet like I can't hear them...  "Sshhhh"  Um... "I CAN HEAR YOU ANSWER ME!"    >:(   

People's embarassment over accidentally calling 911 can cause way more work because if you hang up, are evasive or just sound like somethings wrong we are going to send officers to follow up.  this denies or delays service to those in real need so get over the ego and man (or woman) up and just admit it was an accident...don't hesitate in your response or sound stiff because that sends a warning sign that you may not be able to talk...tell us exactly what happened and why...and answer the questions we ask without hemming and hawing...

sorry I went off on a tangent! LOL

Obviously I know the cops in my agency really well  ;)  we have 30 something officers (with more coming) in our department. 

In addition to the University Police we have Santa Barbara County sheriff's  SBSO, Santa Barbara City Police SBPD (as seen (sort of) on PSYCH!!!) and CHP (as seen (sort of) on CHiPs  :D )


Some of our officers have transferred to the Sheriff's dept so I probably know about 5 - 10 deputies....they probably have 100 or so...  One of the detectives at SBSO used to be a student employee here.  We were campus security together, Actually I trained him so it's cool to see him move up the ranks...

I know about 4 officers at SBPD and one of their major crimes detectives is one of my very best friends.

I know 3 people at CHP (not well enough to get out of a ticket)

And I have friends at other agencies.  I know a cop at Oxnard PD (Jeff's area) - he used to be a child actor and he trained me at the student security job.

I have a friend at San Joaquin County Sheriff's (that's in Ann's neck of the woods)

I have a friend with Huntington Beach Pd

two with Simi Valley PD

3 at Santa Maria PD

2 in Atascadero

and a few friends trying now to get on with other agencies.

I also have a good friend who is a firefighter/paramedic in LA... she just recently got a rescue dog so she may be back east right now....



and I know/am friends with many retired police officers....so when the zombie apocalypse happens I totally know where to go to get guns!  :D

we actually used to dispatch ambulance service for campus and while the firefighters live at our station they are actually dispatched by the county comm center...  about a yr and a half ago we gave the ambulance contract to the county as well so now they dispatch both.


we will get medical calls and fire calls but our primary focus is law enforcement. And we have more crime than fires and medical incidents.

the majority of our medicals are related to alcohol poisoning...shocking right?
the majority of our fire calls are burnt popcorn in the residence halls (tho occasionally an experiment blows up or we get hazardous chemical spills)

mostly we take reports for property crime, vandalism, handle traffic infractions, drunk subjects, assaults (physical and sexual) a lot of suicidal callers and occasionally some person falls off a cliff (aka the incident yesterday)

Since I mentioned it in another thread- ill say Chevy Chase.

Most actors have been really kind to me. Not always willing to take a picture but still pretty pleasant



I don't like the cast of Supernatural cuz they didnt stay to greet their fans after an event

Kyra Sedgwick spent 30 minutes hiding in a back room from 5 ppl wanting autographs. It would've taken her less than 5 minutes to deal with us

Geena Davis was a total bitch. She walked past a group of fans and never made eye contact with anyone. (Not just because she's like 6'5")

Tom welling - Smallville- was pretty stuck up, that was season one. Don't know how he is now.

And I hate to say it but of all the Buffy cast I've met Sarah Michelle hell at is the coldest one. (But I think we scare her)  ;D

I have American Dreams on DVD. One of my faves!

--Snozzie I need your help!

I am having a problem with a "friend" and I need your advice before I get to wrecking feelings like a demoliton ball.
Okay this chick named Jenn has been a friend of mine for about 3 years. We met on a now defunct MJ page and clicked. Now over the years we've talked she's shared alot of things with me, like how she's the result of her mom having an affair with her brother-in-law, making her cousins/half-siblings with her aunt's kids, how she fell and miscarried a child during her first pregnancy and how her family general treats her liek the Latoya of the family. She is also quite overweight and constantly struggling with a litany of health problems caused by it. Plus she seems to have this obsessive nature over an ex-boyfriend who left her for her "best friend".  ???
Through it all, I like to beleive I've been quite supportive and a shoulder for her to cry on. Always trying to up life and putting a halt to each of her more than a dozen suicide attempts. (Which I think are a cry for attention, because if she wanted to die for real, she'd be dead by now)
And of all things to want to fight with me about, she gets bent out of shape about Justin Bieber.  >:( Like seriously.
I have cracked jokes about the singer before and she got all defensive about it like she was losing her mind.
So a few days ago, another friend of mine sent a picture to me on Facebook that had been doctored with Justin proclaiming he was gay. I found it funny and shared it on my Facebook page.
The next thing I know, she's screaming at me on FB and on our messenger. You know she actually had the nerve to accuse me of bullying Justin Bieber? How the hell am I bullying Justin? I'm not in his face. I'm not giving him a wedgie or stuffing him in a locker.
How many times do you think I've heard people call MJ gay? Do you think I'm jumping down everybody's throat about it? I got better things to do with my time. I don't like Justin Bieber...
And it's my constitutional right to have freedom of speech. She tried to flip it and say it was insensitive to gay people. I didn't have the heart to tell her one of my closest friends is actually a gay man and he was not offeneded at all with that post I made. He actually "liked" it on my page.
Should I just cut this girl off, because really, I feel sorry for her more than anything. That's why I was trying to be nice to her. But this thing wit JB is so weird. Like I only jump on the defensive is someone personally attacks me over Michael. If you're talking in a conversation I'm not a part of, it's none of my business. She's acting like JB's personal PR person or something. Gosh. Cause if I lose it and go off on her, I know I'll hurt her feelings something terrible.

Subject: Re: Any Qz about Q? Ask away!

Written By: snozberries on 01/01/13 at 8:34 pm


Personally, I find the Bieber jokes funny as hell but, I know in my heart they are wrong.  He's a person and to make jokes about his femininity is  wrong... It would piss me off is I saw someone doing that to an average teen so why do I laugh when they do it to him?  I'm not sure...I guess because I'm human and I'm not perfect so sometimes I do things that hurt others.

Your friend however may be defensive on the Beiber things for another reason... I mean maybe she's a really big fan! or maybe she has had a personal experience that she hasn't divulged to you.  But you now know she's sensitive about these things so you have a few options...

a) if you post something like this again on FB block the post from her...sure it's a lot of work but perhaps your friendship is worth it.

b) don't post mean spirited jokes about people, no matter how funny it may be... why continue to pass the hate...

c) stop being friends with her and post whatever the hell you want. 

I really think it would be a shame to lose a friend over this type of issue but it sounds like she's deeply offended...no matter how realistic she's being or where she's coming from, as a friend you should recognize she's hurt by what she saw. 

This goes beyond free speech... I mean yes we live in a country where we can say whatever, within reason we want... free speech or not you can't say bomb in an airport, yell fire in a movie theater or joke about robbing a bank in a bank and you can dislike the president but you can't make off the cuff statements about wanting to stop that person holding the position...ie I hated GWB but I'd never joke about wiping him off the face of the earth...

Besides, with freedom of speech comes a responsibility. We should still all be civil to one another. And, if the words we choose to speak freely hurt another person we should apologize (assuming hurting the person was not your intent) if you intended to hurt the person then mission accomplished, no need to apologize

different people have different levels of sensitivity... and, as I said, her issue may go deeper than beiber. This may have touched on something personal in her life she just hasn't told you about.

Sophia Bush...she was on One Tree Hill I expected her to be dumber thana post. .Paley does this Thing in the fall where they promote new shows and she was there promoting the now canceled CBS comedy Partners.  She was smart insightful and funny.

I've been feet away from Larry Davud but I didn't get to meet him

The only way to meet marlon is to be places you know he will be. With perseverance and luck it could happen

I'm a big fan of Oscar Michaeux's films.

A few:

Had a kid call 911 demanding candy. I think an adult put him up to it.

Had a woman call 911 b/c she needed change for a $10 bill. She was pretty pissed when I explained the meaning of emergency situations to her.

Had a woman call because she thought there was a prowler outside her house the night before. I ask the circs and she told me that she heard someone at her window. She wasnt sure if it was the wind, a burglar or a ghost.

Had a lady call because she saw dig poop on a bike path. She was afraid someone would slip on it or a little kid might come by and eat it.

My friend told me about a call she took from a hysterical (crying) family. Apparently the cat got squished in the bed frame. It was clearly dead but the family demanded an ambulance come out. They wanted the paramedics to do CPR. she played the tape for me. It was hilarious.

I like Family Guy but I don't love it... I don't have a favorite character but I enjoy the writing and the Brian/Stewie pairing.... I met Kevin Michael Richardson at an event (well a few events) he remembered me the last time we met and he recorded the voice message on my cell phone.. .it's AWESOME!!! So maybe Cleveland Brown Jr is my favorite character!  :D



I love Gina Prince Bythewood... Love and Basketball is one of my favorite bullshyt lovestories... I have seen that film like 100 times!!!

Kasi Lemmons
F. Gary Gray
Kevin Hooks
Denzel Washington
Charles S. Dutton
Forest Whitaker
I wish I liked Maya Angelou's films better but they're soooo damn slow I get bored quickly. 

Oh and Antone Fuqua
Documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson
Rick Famuyiwa

Dee Rees just clicked on my radar last month but I need to see Pariah to be sure.



I still ned to meet Oprah!
Janet Jackson (the only Jackson I like!  :D )
I was in a room with Denzel and he looked at me but it would've been nice to meet him
Whoopi
And all the surviving Charlie's Angels...
or and TBoz & Chili!

I used to want to be a set dresser... not a set a designer, just the person who puts up the crap on a set others designed... but then I did the job for one day and thought damn they have to move fast I don't wanna do this.  ;D


I think I'm better suited for script supervisor or continuity.

I always wanted to write a pilot but I don't want to write a series- I don't think I have enough good ideas to maintain full season of good tv.
I wouldn't mind selling a tv movie (course I gotta get the scripts out of my head and on to paper) I think I have three good tv movies in me.

Ultimately,  if I won 300 mil in the lottery,  I would either:


buy a house in LA, SB and San Diego  and immerse my self in what, to date has been a hobby,  attend TV show tapings, set visits comic con, celeb stalking  :D 

or

buy said houses above and start a production company...but if I started a production company I'd hire my friend as the "executive" and I'd give myself a job on set and we'd work from the bottom to the top to make sure everyone was doing the stuff they were supposed to be doing... I would be the "undercover boss" no one knew existed.  ;D


ultimately....if I only won enough money to survive for the rest of my life (ie 3 million or the Publisher's clearing house $5 grand a week for life) I would quit my job and move to LA and get a job as the person who bangs the clappers at the start of each scene.... that's truly my dream job.... no glamour but but you're on set everyday and you get to watch the action until you have to get up and start the next take.  8)

I don't really go for that pants hanging off the ass thuggy look, but it seems like that's all that's attracted to me. And I don't want a man that looks like that at all.

I'm the wrong person to ask for dating advise but I will say you don't need to change yourself. I'm gonna give you some if your own advice:

I recently asked you what advice you'd give young Michael if you could've met him back in the day and you said you'd tell him to learn to love himself and recognize how beautiful he is acne and all. 

My perception is you put way too much stock in what other people think of you and how other people see you- the reaction to your friend commenting on you applying lipstick after a meal, the comment about your friend referring to you as a pastor or preachers wife.... You should look inside of you and find a way to be comfortable with who you are instead of seeking superficial approval from others. Once you are happy Ruth you, as you are, and once you are comfortable being with yourself, and once you stop thinking of finding a man as if you're beating some invisible time clock then it will happen. When you slow down and live your life you will be amazed at the stuff that comes to you when you stop looking for it.

Oh the first celeb I can remember meeting (besides Herb from Peaches & Herb at a crab feast in Maryland circa 1977/8)....  hmmmm....

Kenny Rogers always put on a show for them in Vegas and there was a celebrity baseball game I met Bart Braverman from Vega$, Phyllis Davis (same show), Kenny & Dottie West.

It no longer has the ability to do WiFi so it's kind of useless.  I need a new desk top or lap top...

I didn't hate the Lakers as much when Magic was there... pretty much I loved Magic but I still wasn't a Lakers fan...there was a Lakers/Kings rivalry and so, by default, I sided with the kings...always rooted for them. I remember a western confrence final Kings v Lakers and freaking Doug Christie kept messing up... I was so pissed at him... and Kobe and Shaq


I found a collection of 60 pics tracing the Kings/Lakes rivalry over the years...  http://www.sacbee.com/2011/04/11/3545115/kings-lakers-rivalry.html

Yes. I injured my back at work and was out for 6 months.
Also I had carpal tunnel surgery and was out for 6 weeks (or so)

I don't watch a whole lot of news b/c I get enough of it at work.

Off the top of my head the end to Charles Dorner's  reign of terror; too many people lost their lives or were injured by that jackoff!

I'm glad little Ethan made it out of the bunker alive. I hope he's strong enough to deal with whatever that sociopath did to Jim down there for 7 days.  :-\\

Due to my work?  Not really... I few years ago I remember reading about a suspect who was brought back to the station (similar to our layout) and he got free and shot a bunch of people a dispatcher died in that one... since then I was forever watching carefully anytime they brought a suspect here and placed him in the room across from dispatch. Fortunately they don't really bring suspects here any longer.


I can't say do this/don't do that because sure as shyt....if I do....something will happen to you and you will say well Q told me if I did this every thing would be okay!  :D

Meesa:


after responding to your questions I remember two scary moments (neither job related) that I shall impart here.... one is only because of the gift of fear that I got out okay the other...well you'll see....


1) I used to drink...heavily! While on a trip to San Diego I went with a group of coworkers/friends to a bar/club. there was lots of dancing and even more booze. I was wasted!  two of my friends found hook ups and not wanting to be the fifth wheel I told them I'd take off while they walked to beach and got "romantic" with the dudes they met.  One of the guys bought flowers so I said I'd take them to the car and then meet them at the beach...problem I had was I drunk, in an unfamiliar city and had no freaking idea where the damn car was... 

Anyway it was like a scene from one of those scary lifetime movies....It was 2am, I was walking down the street carrying these stupid flowers, the streets were packed with people filing out of bars...it was a crowded area...lots of clubs... I wondered for what felt like 45mins...in all actuality it was more like 10 or 15.  At some point I was completely oblivious to the fact that the streets which had been packed were now deserted...It took some doing but I found the car and put the flowers in the trunk... as I closed the trunk I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up... I had no reason to know anything was wrong. I don't recall hearing a sound, I don't recall seeing anything... I went from lalala put the flowers in the car to maybe i should RUN!!!!  NOW!!!! 

I took a second to look around...and I saw a guy standing on the corner staring at me... he was about 1/2 a block away. Fortunately I was about 100lbs lighter than I am now  :D    Anyway I went... um....uh oh....RUN! and then I ran... still don't know what it was that told me he had ill intentions I just know my gut said this had all kinds of bad all over it so I ran... I ran HARD...harder than I've ever run in my life... the more I ran the more sober I became... I wasn't sure where I was, mostly a residential neighbor hood.... there were still no people... I didn't scream, I don't know why... but I could hear the guy running after me...  after running a couple blocks the guy was getting closer... I didn't know what to do but my instinct said turn right....right now... I did.. and OMG there was a taco bell. I have never been sooo happy to see taco bell in my life!!! I ran right into the arms of a security guard who just happened to standing there... I tell ya, if that had been a dead end, or the taco bell had been closed I would've been done...there was no where left for me to go...as I ran to the guard I heard the dude pause and then run away....  I caught my breath and saw a Dennys across the street. I went to it and found a different friend. Told him what happened and he walked me to the beach to go find the people who'd hooked up... I promptly started drinking again cuz I'd run all the alcohol out of me... and I was one giant bundle of nerves....

Scary encounter #2


I mentioned before I had a back injury...while I was out on leave my friend asked me to adopt a dog her friend rescued...the dog was a runner and seemed to run away everytime the friend left for work. Since I was home all day they figured the dog wouldn't run from me... because of the injury I couldn't walk her on a leash..she pulled something fierce but I learned she was an excellent off leash dog never really ran from me so I would walk her late at night off leash...less traffic at night and no one to judge that I had this big ass dog off leash...


anyway- there's a field where we lived a great place to walk a dog off leash...I took her there one night, it was pitch black...I did not have a flashlight and I couldn't see shyt... because i live in a college town and where I was  about a mile or two from the school there are lots of transients in the area...usually they keep to themselves but sometimes you get a bad one...

I was standing in this field minding my own business letting Carly do her thing... and I hear the slow squeak of a bicycle... I can't see anything but I'm pretty sure the person on the bike must have adjusted to the dark and could totally see me... I hear this "Squeak-Squeak-Squeak' slowly approaching...then I feel the dog come and lean her full body weight against my legs... I don't say a word...I think I actually hold my breathe....then I hear this person getting closer to me and my dog....bless her timid heart did something I never knew she could do... she growled the meanest growl....she knew dude was up to no good and she let him know it....next I knew I heard squeaksqueaksqueak....as the dude raced away from us!  ;D

I don't recall exactly what they did...I do know they required me to be awake for it and I wore a cast for a few weeks.  I have low tolerance for pain and high tolerance for medication so I mostly remember fighting with the bitch of a nurse how much valuim I would need... I told her three she said I could only have one.. I said no I need three if I'm gonna get through this... she conceded and gave me two... during the operation I jumped when the dr cut into me... the nurse said you shouldn't be able to feel that... I replied with...well I can and it effing hurts... her response "I guess I should've given you three"  NO SHYT!  >:(



you could start a petition to get the jacksons to Houston.  Sorry but unless it involves getting Janet back to santa barbara I'm not signing any petitions


I'm not a big fan of british period pieces so no I've never watch Downton Abby


I think the jacksons are too old for you maybe one of their sons...

Thank you for the answers. I can certainly understand why you would be hesitant to give out any advice. Trusting the inner voice I definitely relate to-it has saved me more than once.

As for your scary situations, I probably would have had a heart attack in either case!  :o  That is partly why I have my german shepherd. He is very intimidating and very loyal. Scares the crap out of ppl that walk by even though he is behind a fence. But he is also very good and gentle with my family members. Sounds like your dog knew how to take care of business!

I used to joke that she was such an attention whore that she'd let a burglar walk out with my whole apartment so long as he stopped and rubbed her belly first.  ;D 

I really didn't think she had a protective bone in her...she was big and that was intimidating and she was vocal...but all her moaning was about people not paying attention to her...  ::)    people who didn't know her were freaked by the sounds she made but I knew what she wanted everytime she started in...that moment in that field was only one of two times I heard her growl... the other involved a construction worker who got too close to the car but I think she just didn't like his hat or the loud tools...

we were once in a parking lot, window down for the dog and two transients came up to the car and started reaching in to pet her... that goofy mutt was all tongue and smiles... PET ME MORE!!!! COMEONPETMEMORE!!! YESSSS  ::)    :D

I worked at a haunted toys r us before that I saw a disembodied head/spirit float over a sleeping friend at a slumber party.

I'd wanna contact Farrah Fawcett And just thank her for all the years of entertainment. Charlie's angels came at a time I had no friends. It was the first show I was obsessed about. Burning bed, small sacrifices &  Extremities were great flicks that showed her range and all in all I really just enjoyed watching her act. She made it look effortless.


I think Malcolm took the wrong approach whites already had specific opinions of blacks and Malcolm's in your face approach sort of exacerbated the issue. King was all about we're tired of this shyt and we will be here everyday until you see it's wrong too. It took longer but it's a lot harder to fight with non resistance than to actually fight back. You put people off balance. You make them look like the bullies. Malcolm gave whites a reason to keep the fight going.


I often wonder what things would be like if king had lived... What would he say about where we are. In a way we have a lot to be proud of but in other ways...  :-\\

My first and only "operation" I've ever had was carpal tunnel surgery a few years ago. I shouldve had back surgery but they wouldn't cuz of my size  :-\\


One way 525miles santa barbara to Mesa AZ


I drove about 700 miles in a day three or four times.  Each time I went to northern California for something I left at 5 or 6am did what I had to do and then drove home the same night. 




I've always had dogs.  I had a turtle it creeped me out I gave it away. I had a bunny. It chewed thru an electrical cord and died.  I think it committed suicide.  Dogs are the best.  I had a car when I was in 4th grade. The thing was evil. We called it Edi Amin it ran away. I was glad. I always hated cats.


I don't really like parades. The last parade I went to was a local one some thirty yrs ago.


I hate football (except for football movies). I prefer nba - I don't like the long shot clock on college ball but if I had to choose a. College sport it'd be basketball. 


In high school I did really well in English- funny thing- I never read any of the books....not a one. I read the friends Romans countryman speech from Julius ceased cuz I had to memorize it but I never read anything else yet I got all A's in English.  I sucked at math, science and religion tho. Never cracked books in those classes either  :D 




Totally-  I was working Christmas eve. It was my 11th shift in a row.  We worked 11pm to 7am then. At midnight the officers (there were only two on duty) checked out their units. That was the last radio traffic i hears.  I put in Men in Black in the VCR and started watching. If you're familiar with the film then you will understand when I say the past thing I remember was Vincent D'Onofrio crawling out of a ditch at the beginning of the film and the next thing I saw was the final battle at the washington monument. I missed the middle- hour + of the film.  I quickly ran to the recorder and breathed a heavy sigh when I heard the only radio traffic off the night had been the officers checking out patrol cars.  The phones are loud- there's no sleeping through a ringing 911 call.




Great questions thanks!  Please ask more!
