That is a great list honey. Had Kellen and I laughing. Just one to disagree with though. Didn't you use your degree in 2000-2001 at Waynedale?

Tim Appleton (Applehead) said...

umm, no. No I wouldn't. I can't really describe that year at Waynedale. It definitely was NOT using my education.

Cheryl said...

I really enjoyed reading your list. Thanks for participating!

Cheryl said...

Question. How do I make my list a link like yours and Heathers?

Mandy said...

you could have left the kissing the cousin part out! Yuck! good list, though. I'm STILL working on mine.

That seems like a lot of living wedged in with the music...must have been hectic for a while there. The Alaska thing must have been a lot of fun!

Kokopelli said...

You play guitar, huh? Ever try that "Guitar Hero" I hear so much about? Looks like a lot more fun and shooting things or flying/driving imaginary vehicles.

No, I don't play any instrument. Just started learning piano when I cut my hand pretty bad and couldn't bend my fingers.

Ron said...

ha! Great list... the goat testicles cracked me up pretty good. :) Guess I could say that I've hugged hog innards too. lol

That's pretty cool that you are self-taught guitar... I learned (all 3 chords!) by watching my parents when I was a kiddo.
