My friend at Snippety Gibbet has tagged me for a meme to share five random things. I'm honored because I just think she's so boss. (I am determined to revive "boss" as a cool superlative.) Jan is one of our art teachers whose good work with kids goes way, way beyond her job description. Her own art is incredible. I love paper anything and her artistic cutting is serious whimsy. She also just got back from a 270 mile, four day ride from Pittsburgh toward DC. Did I mention it was on two wheels? With only pedal power? So of course, I will answer her tag.
Anyway, my five random things:
1. I spoke Japanese til I started kindergarten when my mom decided it would prevent me from speaking English and doing well in school. We just didn't know. Can hardly say ko nichi wa now.
2. I've had thirty different jobs in my life not counting mom, and including "cook" on a llama ranch in Gilroy, CA (town named for my family).
3. Two foods always in my refrigerator- lemon and cilantro.
4. I owned a dirt bike in the desert as a teenager til I had a bad crash.
5. I love violin music.
