The 10 Things thing

10. I cannot sew. Many have tried to teach me. As a result, I flunked Home Ec and throw stuff out that needs new buttons or hems.

9. I am afraid of clowns, bridges, and dolls/stuffed animals. I recently had to flee a child's birthday party that was held in a puppet theatre. All those creepy puppets and their shiny eyes! [shudder]

8. I was in the Gifted/Talented program up until high school. We were separated from our stupider classmates all day. Can you say, "Beat Up Every Day on the Way Home from School?"

7. I can play the flute, the piccolo, and the air guitar and air drums. I still play the last two. I went to band camp.

6. I learned gourmet cooking in junior high, for my mom's dinner parties. Still a pretty good cook, somewhat limited to certain people's vegetarianism. I do make a banging vegetarian matzoh ball soup, though, so there.

5. I owned and operated a successful wedding planning company in Denver. Feel free to ask me anything about weddings, I am the all-knowing, all-seeing bridal maven. Seriously.

4. The name of my dear departed 'zine was Hootchie Mama Magazine. It got so popular, stupid-ass trophy wives started calling themselves "Hootchie Mamas" as they drank their apple martinis and cackled. That part sucked.

3. Speaking of martinis, I'm a total snob about them. Chilled glass, good booze, a whiff of Vermouth, that's it. Cosmopolitans, anything fruity or chocolate, those aren't martinis. They're cocktails. I am similarly obnoxious about beer, wine, and other classic cocktails. Six years of bartending; in sportsbars, martini bars, and old-skool dives, made me so.

2. I have an unhealthy love for butter, and everything else that will surely kill me.

1. Drumroll, please! Number one thing you probably don't know about your friend Trouble is this: If I told you my IQ, you'd not only be impressed, you might try to sell me to the circus as a sideshow freak. Only, don't make me be near clowns, ok?

That's a pretty comprehensive list. So I'm guessing if I ask you for help in planning my wedding I can rest assured that there won't be any clowns or puppets?

I'm afraid of things that go bump in the night which is why I have a rather large dog. He wards off such things. I am still working on getting a large boyfriend.

Cleavage, having a large boyfriend will ensure it's YOU going bump in the night. Heh, heh.

If you don't ask me for wedding help, I shall be greatly vexed. Rest assured, no clowns, puppets, or other boogeymen will be in the plan. No control over your relatives and guests clownish behavior, however.

It sounds funny but a lot of people are afraid of clowns. There are websites dedicated to them.

One I THINK is:

I was always more afraid my dolls would come to life and plot my undoing...

LB, is there anything else on dolls' agendas?
