If you are on this list, please answer the questions below on your own blog, and pass the award along as well.  This is a fun way to get to know each other, while also letting your blog readers about other great blogs, & getting potential new readers yourself!!!  Have fun.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A secetary like Della Street from Perry Mason.  She was so smart and efficient, and I wanted her killer wardrobe.

What were your favorite cartoons?

My hero Penelope Pitstop

Scooby Doo, SchoolHouse Rock, Wacky Races, The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Underdog, Pink Panther, Top Cat, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, The Jetsons, Eek! The Cat, Muppet Babies, Danger Mouse, Inspector Gadget, Tex Avery creations, and Beetlejuice.

I'll still watch cartoons if given the chance.  My favorites now are The Venture Brothers ,Teen Titans, and Making Fiends.


Favorite childhood game?
Make-Believe. I loved making up stories for me and my friends to act out.   

Most favorite Birthday?
I'm told, from an early age, I drove everyone near mad with demands for all things Wizard of Oz and Dorothy related. It only came on TV once a year and this was a major event for me! For my fifth birthday my parents threw me a Wizard of Oz themed birthday party. My mom even found a Dorothy dress for me to wear. I was thrilled. No red sparkly shoes though, I didn't see those for sale until I was much older and my obsession was long past.    

Something you have always wanted to do, but haven't done yet?
So, so many things it's embarrassing! I'd like to learn to drive and roller skate.  I must have a deep seeded fear of wheels or something!

What was your first love?

First musical idol? 
Alannah Currie of the Thompson Twins. 

Favorite gift?
An Amazon or iTunes gift card.
If a theme song played for you everywhere you went, what would it be?
I want to say "The Imperial March" but that's already Darth Vader's theme song, it is rather grand but a bit too imposing for my needs.  Hmmm what about Wallflower by Switchblade Symphony? That'll work!

Favorite city to visit?
I like going to Berkeley. It's home to my favorite fabric store Stonemountain and Daughter Fabrics, they have the most amazing button selection ever! The flea market at Ashby station is rad too.

On a side note: I apologize for my semi abandoned blog! I haven't been feeling up to posting much due to some oogieness in various areas in my life right now. So receiving this blog award cheered me up lots!
I'm off to investigate whether some of my favorite cartoons are on availble on DVD...
