SarahSouth tagged me, and since she is my sissy from another missy, I will obviously respond. Plus, as pointed out on her blog, this is a good break from my current state of election hysteria.

I am required to list 6 random facts about myself:

1. I have done the flying trapeze 2 separate times in my life; both were outdoors in a forest.

2. If I were stuck on a desert island and could only take 2 albums with me, I would take the Big Chill soundtrack and Carole King's Tapestry...most likely.

3. While I was living in Jamaica, I climbed the highest peak in the country on a trek that started at 2:00am. We were above most of the clouds, reached the peak right at sunrise, and could see Cuba from the top. It was perhaps one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

4. I've always wanted to be a published children's book author and used to write books constantly when I was a kid.

5. I once sang in a gospel choir that opened for Maya Angelou when she spoke in San Francisco. Yes, I am a white Irish girl.

6. I didn't lose my first tooth until I was in first grade. They had a chart in my kindergarten class and everyone else got stars because they had lost teeth and I never did. My mom bought me books about other kids who hadn't lost their teeth yet (I think there was one about a little bat??) and they made me feel better. I ended up losing one of my front teeth and the adult tooth didn't grow back in FOREVER. I looked like a little witch because I also had a perm...that I brushed. I looked deranged.

Now I am tagging:
