60) I love Archie comics, always have. I still get the Double Digests each month and keep up w/ Archie, Jughead and the rest of the gang from Riverdale:)

59) When I was 10, I was given the "Christmas gift" of a years worth of Weight Watchers meetings. So there I was, a kid, being dropped off every week by myself with a bunch of whiny grown-ups.

Ya know, I think the sad thing is, I wasn't a huge child; I weighed around 15lbs over the "average" for my age group. Nowadays, that would BE average, based on the kids I see every day.

And people wonder why I have self esteem issues. I started Kindergarten at age 6, and I think I started "dieting" the next day.

Kids can be cruel, and well-meaning parents can be crueler.

58) I grew up with equal exposure to both country and rock music. So while I trend toward the harder side of rock, there will always be country music artists that I will gladly listen to, even purchase. Most notably of which is Alabama...though I don't think they're actually making new albums anymore. I like the old Oak Ridge Boys, and classic Reba, too:)

El-vir-a (oom-boppa-mow-wa) hearrrrts on fire, for Elvira.

57)My pinkie toes are pointed, with almost no nail:p It's a family thing on my mother's side.

56)I most assuredly do not have a green thumb. It's not that everything I try to grow dies; it's that I simply can't make things thrive. They always look so pitiful!

Except for the basil a few years ago. Man, that stuff was almost 5 ft tall....growing out of a pot, even

54) Favorite cocktail: Amaretto Sour

53) I like apples, but not cooked apples. It's really rare for me to eat cooked apples, eg apple pie, baked apples, etc. I also can't stand applesauce.

I think it's a texture thing. Most people cook the poor things to death. I don't like the "mushiness" that most cooked apples have. Apples are supposed to be crisp, damn it!

52) One of my Dad's hobbies is working on cars. I'm not talking "get the heap out on Sat's and work on it". I'm talking about a man who regularly buys wrecks, rebuilds them, and sells them for a nice profit. So I and my sister know our way around a vehicle, and how to keep one running till it "just can't run no more". Though I'm less adept at working on my Saturn then I was at deciphering the problems of my old, trusty Chevy Cavalier. Damn Toyota engines, pain in the ass to work around. Just kidding, I like Toyotas.

First off I fully admit that I have had assistance in these endeavors, esp as most of them are 2 person jobs. Thanks in particular to [ profile] wolfboi, Christoff, my hubby, Christopher Robin, and my dear old Dad for assists at different times.

I have made the following repairs to my car(s) sans shop: Changed various hoses, changed out the alternator, changed out various belts, replaced a tensioner pully (which I have no desire to repeat), changed brakes,...and there was some wiring stuff in there too, but that was mostly my dad w/ my help.

Perhaps the one thing I'm bad about is checking my tires regularly.

And I hate to change my oil; I get someone else (ahem, the hubby) to do that.

51) I am not afraid of heights per se, but I do have a severe problem with ladders, even small step ladders. I managed to get over it to an extent when I worked retail, because, well, you HAVE to get on ladders. But it got worse again when I *gasp* fell off a ladder a couple of years ago.

I was known to buy cookies and cokes for my employees if they'd change the lightbulbs/wash the windows/whatever. Anything to avoidgetting on the damn ladders.

50) Careers I have considered, aside from art: veterinarian, chef, Lit teacher, classical musician and writer

49) I very much enjoy playing pool. There was a time a few years ago when I got to play often at the local coffee shop. I miss that.

Hey, Emmy, maybe we should get together and go take over a table somewhere. Of course, it won't be as much fun since there'e no Morgan to shock anymore;)!

48) I'm a witch...but I don't consider myself Wiccan, for various reasons.

Yes, I know that most of you know that already; however, I have made many new LJ friends recently who don't. And I'm still sick and doped on meds and can't think of anything else super-interesting.

47) I will read just about anything, but I'm not so big on romance novels. I really only like teo authors, Jude Deveraux and Amanda Quick, when it comes to that genre.

Well, I also like [ profile] ladyofthemasque's fanfic, which I do classify as romance (heavy erotica, but still romance). But the Lady is in a class by herself!

46) When I'm feeling very stressed, I will randomly screech Chick-eennns!!!. What made me associate that word w/ de-stressing I'll never know. I've done it since I was a kid. And, scarily enough, it works.

45) 3 years ago I had a cervical cancer scare. If all goes well at my appt. next week, I will officially be declared "clean." Here's hoping.

44) I HATE English peas. HATE HATE HATE THEM!!!!! I won't order fried rice if they put those damn peas in there!!!!!

43) I adore candied ginger. I eat it straight out of the bag.

42) Not too long after my intial move to Memphis, I decided on a whim to color my hair. I picked out this great black cherry, burgandy color.

It came out purple...which incidentally, I loved:) I kept it that way for a few years, though each time I re-colored, it was more red and less purple, but s'okay.
