"I can name almost any song you play for me within a few seconds from motown to metallica lol .."

... now that's impressive ...

I also like washing dishes (not drying them) and have a collection of rocks and crystals ...

and yeah, spiders are horrible ... snakes are cool though ...

to continue the comment exchange -
I'm doing fine, summer has been nice but less than others.

BB King is great. I really like the album he did with Eric Clapton, Riding with the King.

Bartender - must be some good posts from that.

Dishes - that's a useful trait

I hope you are proud of your red hair, if not you should be, and don't let anyone put you off.

Bettie

Hi there Donald, nice to see you (so to speak). I have always loved being a redhead, the only downside is getting too much sun and coming home looking like Pippi Longstocking :)

How have you been?

Lana Gramlich

Sounds like you & I are surprisingly similar. I, too;

1. Lived in Canada (although for 19 years.)
2. Am an adopted child (actually I'm a black market baby.)
3. Have eyes such an odd color I can't honestly tell what they are; blue, green or gray.
4. Have played guitar (although for significantly less time.)
5. Engage in creative expression (I paint fairly often after a 10 year break.)
6. Can name almost any song you play for me within a few seconds from motown to metallica
10. Have kept in contact with a friend I have known now for 36 years (without FB, even!)
16. Used to be a bartender (practically. "Mom" was a drunk, so by the time I was twelve I could make you a whiskey sour, a left handed screwdriver, etc.)
18. Can't stand on ice skates (anymore)
19. Have a wonderfully sarcastic sense of humour
21. Am supposed to wear glasses (but do)
24. Have been on stage several times and sung with a band that recorded a few albums (local band)
25. Have a collection of stones & crystals.
26. Can read Tarot Cards
27. Suffer from PTSD and have lost a large chunk of my memory.
Other things are similar in different ways, too.
Enjoyed my visit--best to you & yours. Take care!

Christiejolu

Great list! I can name songs pretty fast too. I also am a natural red head! I am off to read the rest of your posts!

nothingprofound

You sound like a free spirit. I like that!

I love doing dishes, the warm water splashing on my hands.

Lana Gramlich

You know, I was devastated when I learned that I needed glasses (that was years ago now.) I got over it rather quickly, when I was blessed enough to actually SEE again. Give it a try--you might be surprised. Wearing glasses certainly makes you no less of a person!
My best to you & yours for 2010. :)
