An acquaintance who I hope to someday call friend, a fellow California transplant to the northeast, Gina Hyams, tagged all her readers who blog with this meme.
She's a good writer (real books!) and has a wonderful new blog, so check her out. Meanwhile...
1. Spell my name as it sounds: Paje.
2. Am I a worrier? Yes.
3. What’s my favorite CD? This is one of those impossible questions. Anything by Tom Petty? Patti Scialfa's "Rumble Doll"? Lately, the soundtrack to that Todd Haynes Dylan movie that I always blank out the name of, even though I listen to it all the time....
4. Favorite colour(s)? My children say it's red. It might really be green, but lately I have purple and pale blue and even pink running around, so who the hell knows?
5. Does my home have an attic? Yes, but we finished it to make offices for ourselves--which does, in fact, make me the madwoman in the attic. (Or maybe that's the H, since he tends to go to his office first, and then get tense if I try to go work in mine...please, strike, end, so he can get an office out of the house again!!)
6. Have I ever been to Canada? Yes--my dad and I drove through Canada once on our way to Exeter. We saw Niagara Falls, which was lovely on the Canadian side, and deeply depressing on the American side. I hear the Canadian side is now pretty awful, too.
7. Have I ever gone fishing? Yes. Somewhere my mom has a memorable picture of me and my best friend at age 3 or 4, Alan Standefer, proudly displaying our catch. I don't think I've really been fishing since, though I did sort of try in Mammoth last summer...
9. Have I ever been on a motorcycle? Yes.
10. How much money do I have on me right now? Hmmm....my wallet's downstairs. Maybe $40 or so?
11. How many cars have I owned? Counting co-owning, eleven or twelve.
12. How many jobs have I had? I can count eighteen, but I'm pretty sure I've forgotten some...
13. How tall am I? 5′7″
14. Last person to call me: My friend Rebecca.
15. Last thing I yelled out loud: "Come brush your teeth. NOW!"
