Picked up any number of lone male hitchhikers, including one who told me he'd just gotten out of jail for assault -- and then said yes when he asked me out. Went to party with a group of four or five guys passing through town, the only woman in their room at the Holiday Inn.

18) Dream in B/W or color: Color

11) Favorite movie:  Duh!  Brokeback Mountain  ;) but Secretary with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader is a close second

Dot good call on Secretary!  I love the movie Secretary and I had no idea who Maggie Gyllenhaal was at the time i saw it. 

Come to think of it my fav TV show is Boston Legal because i find James Spader's character very entertaining and of course seeing him reminded me of Secretary, so i watch it sometimes.

I don't think you can post a powerpoint presentation.... Would love to see it though, could you send it if you can't post it?

Have you ever been to Amsterdam, to the Van Gogh museum?

I've e-mailed a copy of the PowerPoint presentation to David, Melissa, requesting that he forward it to you.

In order to both see the pictures and hear the song, you will need to have the full PowerPoint on your PC. If you only has PowerPoint Viewer (free from the Microsoft site), you will only be able to see the paintings (beautiful in its own right), but not hear the song.

Enjoy!  :D

I was only as good as the company I kept that weekend.  Everyone was there in the spirit of friendship, and I love to make my friends laugh, so I acted accordingly!

Just like the first BBQ in Texas, this one will live on in my mind and heart for a very long time!
